Introducing Mary Kay Global Makeup ArtistShawnelle Prestidge

Without color, there are no possibilities. I think it’s really exciting to play with color. I feel that people are pretty multidimensional, and one look is not always suitable. I think color is for everyone, and I want that for everyone.

Shawnelle Prestidge's Signature Look

Because I’m part Asian, I have always been obsessed with finding flattering ways to bring out my eyes and enhancing them so they appear larger in a subtle way using neutral tones. Adding a pop of color to my mouth strikes a balance. This look makes me feel fresh, modern and pulled together.
