About The Products
Each product was chosen with incredible specificity and had to jump through extensive amounts of hoops before entering into my line. The skincare targets a sensitive skin and is all paraben and petrochemical-free as well as largely fragrance-free. The makeup is mostly mineral and paraben-free and is appropriate for a wide range of skintones.
After teaching makeup classes in New York City and handing participants a list of product recommendations, I wanted to find more affordable options without sacrificing any quality. It started with the Foundation Brush, which led to the rest of the brushes. Next came the makeup after finally finding a lab whose eyeshadow and blush pigments literally made me squeal with delight! Paraben-free skincare was next on the docket and, after numerous friends and family members acted as guinea pigs, I rounded out the line. In November of 2011 the Erin's Faces product line officially launched in New York City.

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Erin had a mother who wore lipstick for the carpool and a grandmother who went to the beauty shop every week to get her hair set. It was inevitable that she fall into the beauty industry in some shape or form. In elementary school Erin would grab a watercolor brush and a cup of water to "paint" her friend's faces, imagining the beautiful colors she was seeing in her mind.
While in college at Texas Christian University Erin started working as a makeup artist for weddings. Shortly after graduating she took the big leap and moved to New York City and worked with various cosmetic and skincare lines such as Smashbox, Philosophy, Urban Decay, Hourglass Cosmetics and La Bella Donna at places like Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel's and Barney's New York just to name a few.
After acting as a National Artist for Urban Decay she was given the opportunity to write for the online publication, www.BeautyNewsNYC.com, and served as their Beauty Editor for three years. Shortly thereafter she started working New York's Fashion Week and assisting makeup artists on shoots. Later she got to head up her own shoots and advertising campaigns.
Recent makeup work has been with New York Live, Project Runway, QVC, The Today Show, Shear Genius, VH1, Ad Campaigns for Kodak, Tressame, Nexxus, V05, Verizon Wireless and Hawaiian Tropic, Teen People and Redbook Magazines, NYC's Fashion Week, as well as theatrical makeup design for Lincoln Center and numerous opening nights for various Broadway starlets.
Erin was recently nominated for the Rising Star Award by the Fashion Group International based in New York City.
