From ghostly ghouls to pretty princesses, Masquerade Designs has got you covered- literally!

Miss Gina Shinn, has always been drawn to things creative, but was surprised to have that part of her life play out in such an unique way when she began painting faces.

Shinn’s foray into the art of bringing beauty and happiness to people’s cheeks began when she was asked to volunteer her talents as a painter for a school fundraiser. The cause- an effort to help cover medical expenses of a child who had suffered a dog attack- was especially close to her heart, given her primary career in Pediatric Nursing. Happy to lend her skills to the event, she never expected it to springboard her into the business of party entertainment; however, after seeing her work, she was quickly approached by other organizations.

A few gigs later, Shinn was catapulted into face painting fame, and decided the next natural step was to open her company, Masquerade Designs. Business took off in a hurry, and she has never looked back!
