“Makeup Artist take a big chance on her fantasy skills.”

 

Down through the years Lashundra enjoyed making women look and feel there best. Her artistry started  in 2000 when she decide not to style hair for a living anymore, makeup became a passion of Shun beside music, so the talent was put to work  with  enhancing family, friends, and church members. Artistry took a while before she learned how to blend eyeshadow very well, and knowledge on cosmetics, brushes, and skin tones.

Lashundra  accepted a job in the mall as a beauty advisor, she worked for LANCOME cosmetics, and loved working for the company. After a while of all the training and experience she decided to take a big chance on her fantasy skills of art, and  become a freelance make artist in Memphis. Shun is now a well respected mua, in her hometown doing bigger and better opportunities.

I, Lashundra Easton would like to do celebrity makeup , and get more exposure for better opportunities in my career. However, I’m still learning new techniques to embrace my artistry skills.
