Teenage entrepreneur sets up global business to support ill father

A teenage entrepreneur is selling her home-made lip gloss all over the world and banking thousands of pounds, after starting a beauty business in the family lounge, in a bid to help her sick father.

Melissa Gallagher, 17, launched Iconic Angel Beauty in January, so that her engineer dad James, 55, did not have to take on extra hours at work.

After a video of Melissa making her lip glosses – which she also sells herself – at their home in New York, in the US, went viral on social media platform TikTok, orders sky rocketed and in April she received 400 orders for her products from fans worldwide.
