Based in the greater Toronto area, Kris Erin is a formally trained in makeup artist. From an early age, she had a passion for make-up artistry, education and travel. She pursued these passions by earning her diploma in cosmetic technique and management, her Masters in education, and by travelling abroad to destinations such as South Africa to gain knowledge from fellow educators and exposure to differing cultures. Kris has taught kindergarten for several years, but felt something was missing in her life. She still felt the need to express her artistic vision, which reignited her desire to do freelance makeup work. Her focus is on print, fashion, editorial and creative beauty makeup. Freelancing allows Kris to meet new people, express her creativity, travel to exotic places and teach.
