Rising Stars: Meet Brandonn Lee

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandonn Lee.

Hi Brandonn, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My real introduction to getting into doing makeup was drag race seeing how you can really transform just using makeup.

I started playing with a small number of products at around 14, & once I got confident in my craft I started practicing with friends/school members.

I knew once I was 18, I wanted to work at MAC so once I graduated, I applied & worked there until 2020, so I really gained a lot of practice through working there. Recently, I mainly do makeup for photoshoots/staged events.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
For the most part, it has been smooth. The only thing I feel for any makeup artist, or artist in general is having to continue to stay grounded & have patience. Everything usually will work out after.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I love creative editorial style makeup. While yes, I can do natural looks, the more intense super detailed dramatic is what I enjoy doing.

I’m proud of the fact that I am self-taught!

I feel what sets me apart from others, is my style of makeup & my precision in my line work!

So maybe we end by discussing what matters most to you and why?
What matters most to me is remaining happy/content while I’m doing anything. I feel no matter what you’re doing, if you don’t enjoy doing it you shouldn’t have to.
