Erin Parsons

Makeup Artist


Erin grew up in the Midwest of the US, in Ohio. It was there that she discovered her love of classic movies, old Hollywood glamour and the allure of the legends of the silver screen fueling her obsession with beauty and fashion from an early age.

At 18, her first job was at a Lancôme counter becoming one of their highest sellers. Erin then joined MAC Cosmetics where she developed her creativity and began teaching face chart classes. After MAC, Erin opened her own company in Ohio; a small boutique called The Powder Room, focusing on beauty brands not available in the Midwest and training her makeup artist employees to teach customers how to use products. Eventually, Erin again was ready for a fresh start and moved to New York to pursue her love of working in fashion.

In New York, she began assisting on shows during fashion week. After her first season, Erin found herself working with teams on the most well-known shows across New York, London, Milan & Paris.

In January 2016, Erin began her own freelance career in make-up artistry. During her first season as key artist at NYFW, Erin worked on Jonathan Simkhai, Bibhu Mohapatra, Gypsy Sport and LRS shows with Teen Vogue featuring her Fashion Week diary online.

Now working regularly with clients such as Maybelline, Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Ford, Erin has developed an almost innate ability to dream up artistic, edgy looks that continue to reference the roots of her classic beauty inspirations.
