It was from growing up in the Midwest of the US, Ohio, where Parsons discovered her love of classical movie; the aesthetic inspiration behind her make up artistry.
Parsons began her career working in London for cosmetic brands Lancôme and MAC. And went on to set up her own company in Ohio; a boutique called The Powder Room. Her own venture focussed on supplying makeup products that were not available in the Midwest of the US.
Parsons’ career in fashion make up artistry began in New York, assisting on shows during New York Fashion Week and continuing through London, Milan and Paris that season. In January 2016, Erin began her own freelance career in the field. During her first season as a leading make up artist at NYFW, Erin worked with Jonathan Simkhai, Bibhu Mohapatra and Gypsy Sport.
Now working regularly with clients such as Maybelline, Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Ford, Parson continues to reference classical beauty within her work.
