Your best face forward for any occasion.


My name is Erin, and I am an up-and-coming makeup artist in the Charlotte, NC area. I specialize in prom, bridal, and other special occasion makeup. While I am extremely passionate about makeup, I also greatly enjoy meeting and working with new people. I believe that everyone has their own, unique beauty; and it's my privilege to reveal that beauty to my clients and to the world. No matter the occasion, it is my goal for every client to feel relaxed and beautiful, on the inside and out, when they leave my chair. I am always accepting new clients, and love to connect with my clients via social media. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see pictures of my work, beauty tips and tricks, and more!


I have had a love affair with makeup my entire life. From the time I could walk, I was rummaging through my mother’s cosmetic case, anxiously awaiting the day I could play with that magical stuff called makeup. Through the years, my passion has never wavered, though I originally chose to pursue other career avenues. For the past ten years, I have been a licensed counselor by trade, always seeking to help my clients become the best possible version of themselves. For me, makeup has always had a similar, transformative power--highlighting our best features, minimizing our flaws, and helping us meet the world with confidence.

Over the past few years, I have been a freelance artist, specializing in bridal and prom makeup. Currently, I am a student at QC Makeup Academy, pursuing my International Master Makeup Professional certification. My hope is that this certification will provide me with the necessary skills and experience to continue growing my business as a freelance makeup artist.


My services include full makeup application, with the addition of false lashes (if requested), for weddings, proms, and other special occasions. As a freelance artist, my hours and location of application are flexible to meet the needs of my clients. Please contact me for pricing.


I was amazed at how Erin made me look. Although she did a natural look, I felt so beautiful! She took the time to tell me what she was doing and why, which for someone who doesn't know much about makeup, was really neat and made it more fun. Erin is professional, and very, very talented. I can't wait for her to do my bridal makeup!

Erin did a great job of highlighting my best feature and camouflaging my flaws, like the redness in my skin. My makeup looked flawless. Great job!
