Erin Guenter is a Makeup Artist and Skin Specialist with over 20 years experience in the Beauty industry offering on location Bridal services, consultations, lessons, and personal shopping to assist in creating a face that doesn’t look made up at all. “Makeup should be used to enhance, not cover or change”, says Erin.
What makes Erin’s services unique is her experience. As a veteran artist, in addition to Bridal, she also has worked in film, print editorial, cosmetic retail, retail consulting, product development and TV, having been a Makeup Artist for Rogers Sportsnet for over 7 years. She believes in staying up to date on trends and techniques and encompasses a vast knowledge of “green” beauty as her passion for health, the environment and sustainability deepens.
“The most favorite part of my work day is having the opportunity to meet different people and getting to know and understand their individual beauty needs along with sharing my enthusiasm for the industry.”
The Bridal side of the business has developed organically as satisfied clients passed on their love of her work to their colleagues, friends and family. “I feel honored to now specialize in a part of the industry that clearly illustrates my love for people and with each happy, radiant client I am reminded of the continuous rewards that my commitment to the Bridal industry has provided.”
As a makeup artist Erin plays such an integral role in someone's wedding day that is both intimate and exhilarating! Not only is she painting a face but also providing a sense of calm and neutrality to someone who is about to embark on one of their most memorable days which can bring with it an array of emotions. In addition to being hired for makeup talents, “I feel it is also honorable to be chosen to share in such a momentous occasion. It is humbling to experience such a raw, human experience which goes beyond making someone look and feel their best.”
