Before Starr became the lead artist at The Lashing, her career began in St. Louis, Missouri, where she worked in hair salons and even opened her own. Now Starr adorns eyelids by pairing natural lashes with semi-permanent extensions. During this meticulous process, she quickly applies lashes in strips and clusters. Starr also emulates the looks of glamorous actressess such as Elizabeth Taylor, who used her iconic eyelashes to distract from her extra ear.
Starr works with her cohort, Dava, a professionally trained makeup artist and marketer. Dava's been applying makeup to faces since she was 12 years old. She admits that subtlety isn't her strong suit, due to her preference for dramatic eye makeup, rosy cheeks, and voluptuous lips.
