Shawn Lumaban, makeup artist
Growing up in the Philippines provided him the freedom to experiment with fashion and makeup.
Shawn used to buy and collect tattered back issues of Vogue Magazine
and study the magnificent images from cover to cover.
He dreamed to one day live in New York and experience the glamour.
He moved to the United States at the age of seventeen.
While studying art and fashion design he enjoyed the bliss of creating.
Although school was going great, Shawn felt something was missing.
He realized, as much as he loved designing clothes, the idea of celebrating a
woman's beauty through makeup satisfied him more.
It is through his passion for art and constant practice that have enabled him to master
the techniques of makeup artistry.
He has worked backstage during New York Fashion Week for Marc Jacobs,
Yigal Azrouel, Mara Hoffman, Karen Walker, Dennis Basso, Richard Chai,
Clover Canyon, Brother Vellies, Paul Andrew, Yeezy Season 4,
Marchesa, and FENTY PUMA By Rihanna.
From clean beauty to editorial, Shawn executes makeup looks with a focus on
flawless complexion and attention to details - a fresh, modern and creative approach to beauty.
He is based in New York City where he continuously seeks out
like-minded individuals to create and collaborate with.
