“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. If anyone would like a makeover here is her information. http://www.facesbyshun.com, booklteastonmakeup@gmail.com. Stay tune with watching her beauty skills grow!

Take clues from nature for colorful designs.

For instance, take the colors from a favorite butterfly photo and then adapt them to yourself. Yes, it’s bizarre and that’s why it looks so striking on the human face.

When the color is applied in a small free-form design it will naturally look more subtle. If you want drama use vivid or dark color and use more area for the design.

Digital Cameras Capture The Fun

When you create looks you love remember to capture them with your iphone or digital camera. It makes it easier to refer back to. You can either recreate the same look or modify your designs. Plus, if you’re face painting with children then you are creating memories for a lifetime. Document your favorite designs with a digital camera for your own Makeup Notebook. Remember to note the colors you used, brushes, temporary tattoos and glitter eyeshadows. If you adapted an airbrush stencil then note which one worked the best.

Make sure that your face is clean of oil and debris and that you have put on your day cream and or moisturizer. We’ve found that a nice foundation primer helps keep you makeup on and your skin fresh. Next we are going to show you how to conceal and cover your eyebrows. This step is a trick from the seasoned pros, and if you want a really dramatic look. Off we go…
One thing that people ask most when doing drag makeup, is how to cover your eyebrows. There are actually 3 ways to accomplish this. When doing your drag makeup look, here are the following tips on concealing those bushy eyebrows. Don’t fret you will not be shaving them off!

White Concealer Pan Stick: This method is the easiest of the 3. Using a tube of white concealer pan stick apply a thick layer on both eyebrows. Using a foundation powder, set the concealer. Apply your favorite foundation over this and you should be good to go. This method will work well on light to medium eyebrow color.

The Glue Stick Method:

Using a spool tipped brush or makeup brush, brush all your eyebrow hair in a downward motion.

Apply Glue Stick to the eyebrow making sure to evenly apply the glue. Then with your finger smooth out the glue. As the Glue begins to try apply some foundation and repeat until smooth. Tip: Using the back of a pair of tweezers also works nicely.

After your brow has completely dried, apply your foundation and pencil in your new eyebrows with your favorite eye lining pencil.

Tip on removing the glue stick: Just use a makeup wipe or a washcloth with warm to hot soapy water. Noxzema wipes are just as effective and when your done you just toss them out!

Spirit Gum Method: This method is the most time consuming and could be the messiest. Take the spirit gum and brush over both eyebrows. With the end of a makeup brush roll over so that the spirit gum gets sticky. When it gets to a sticky but almost dry stage apply the wax, rubbing and smoothing it out with your finger. Take the excess and transfer to the other eyebrow, and repeat. Once dry apply for foundation and to the next step.
After your eyebrows have been concealed, and your base foundation set, it’s time to contour. To achieve a great drag makeup look, this is a must. You must blend the foundation or risk having your makeup looking like lines on your face.

To highlight your cheeks and blend in the two foundation colors together take a small brush with a deep brown color and apply in a light diagonal direction towards your nose, just under the cheek with the lighter colored foundation. Keep working the brown color down your cheek fading it towards the jaw line. Apply this to your upper temples and on each side of your nose (the landing strip) as well, blending upwards towards the hair line.

Tip: This helps to blend in the two areas with foundation on it, It also softens the jaw line and makes your drag makeup smooth.

Next with a smaller brush take your favorite colored blush, work in circular motions to blend in the brown you just applied to the foundation. Apply this to the top of your forehead as well to round it out.

Tip: By applying the blush underneath the jaw bone, it will help to soften your drag makeup look. This is also called shadowing. When doing the shadow for your cheeks remember top of your ear, to the corner of your mouth.
