Erin Winters Makeup Artist

I have a long term love affair with makeup and it’s artistry, it’s ability to transform and empower. I thoroughly enjoy the individuals behind the faces I makeup…their story, their journey, and all of the energy that goes between client and artist. I am committed to making the clients I work with feel and look their absolute best. I spent my early days in makeup learning from the artists at Marvel College, making up for weddings, small independent shoots, and other artistic events around Edmonton. After relocating to Calgary, I have found myself working on a wide variety of projects. I’ve been so fortunate to work on and make up for independent films, theatre productions, burlesque performers (Garter Girls), and other independant events where I served as the key makeup artist. Here I organized as well as lead production styling, heading a team of 20 stylists for over 100 performers. I am currently working with the beloved Calgary boutique Blame Betty, serving as a makeup artist for http://www.blamebetty.com. I also work alongside a handful of talented and up and coming photographers (Patricia Rose Photography), working together to create looks and bring life to the vision of their shoot. I have recently been more involved with teaching and mentoring performers, new artists, and any student interested in learning some of the tips and tricks of the industry. Teaching has quickly become a favourite place in my career. Working, connecting, and sharing knowledge with other creative individuals and artists is truly what makes make up so rewarding and continually inspiring.https://www.facebook.com/ErinWintersMakeupArtist
