In the previous post, I gave you a synopsis of the 1st half of the “On The Go” Tour featuring AJ Crimson and his AJ Crimson Pro products. In this post, I’ll focus on the 2nd half of the class which includes Celebrity Lash Guru Ja’Maal Buster.
He gave us the background on how he developed his brand of lashes and the benefit of using them verses other lashes. The biggest benefit is the way the lashes feel. They’re very lightweight and easy to maneuver. The bands are thin which makes it so much easier to apply to the lash line. (I can vouch for this. I really like his lashes. I bought some last year when I worked with him and AJ for the Glam Suite during NBA All-Star Weekend).
He informed us of the different styles of lashes and that each style was based on a story from his clients in his early years. The lashes have names like “Soap Opera” (which I wore last night), “Crush”, 2nd Date Guaranteed”, “Daddy’s Little Girl”, and “Disturbia” (named after the Rihanna video that he created amazing lashes for).
He showed us exactly how he uses the Ja’Maal Buster Lash Adhesive and Lash Tool to apply lashes on Nikki.
Ja’Maal explained how versatile his lashes are and did a bonus demo to show how to add drama and glam by stacking his lashes. He asked for another model to show the difference stacking lashes can make on your clients.
Ja’Maal informing us how to use his Lash holder to stack lashes for a more dramatic effect He instructed us to remember to apply the most dramatic lash at the bottom.
Here is the multi-pack of Ja’Maal Buster Lashes being passed through the class. These would be great for Professional Makeup Artists to have in their Pro kits. 🙂
Here are a few more pictures from the event. It was very successful. I’m so glad I was able to attend. Me posing in front of the classroom after the event. There was a very long line to buy products after the class was over. It stretched from the classroom all the way to the front door of the store. People were super duper excited to buy the products. 🙂 Celebrity Makeup Artist Brian Champagne came by to show AJ and Ja’Maal support. I was eager to finally meet him in person. I’ve followed him on social media for a while now. He’s very nice and even provided some of us pointers and tips. Thanks Brian! 🙂 Me with Ja’Maal Buster!! 🙂
