Born and raised in Los Angeles, Erin has always had a passion for art and the entertainment business. After graduating with highest honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication, she pursued her artistic interests and attended the Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts. But she has never lost sight of the interpersonal communications skills and business acumen she developed at a renowned university. This education has proved invaluable throughout her years of supervising fellow makeup artists, managing budgets and navigating relationships and politics within the entertainment industry.
She takes the greatest pride, however, in her imaginative approach, true love of the artistry, and consummate regard for clients. Due to her fresh take and ever-evolving-style, she has become a favorite of both young Hollywood and more mature talent. She has made up countless celebrities and has been entrusted by several celebrated commercial/music video directors, such as Marc Webb, Samuel Bayer, and Marc Klasfeld. She is also a regular contributor to many media outlets, including Today Style, TeenVogue, and InStyle.
Erin resides in Santa Monica, CA with her adored family: husband, Brian, and two children, Bevin and Tanner. She loves the beach, travel, hiking, wildlife, interior design and...makeup!
