Meet the Artist: Makeup Artist Erin Ross


Make Halloween Scary Again

It’s never too early to start getting ready for Halloween! I’ve already seen the start of pumpkin spice taking over the shelves of grocery stores.  

Whether you are trying to scare tick-or-treaters with a killer zombie, or treat your kids to a makeover to complete their ensemble, there’s no better pace to turn than a local makeup artist. Characters come to life with the right makeup, so why not go all-out and this year and have the best costume at the party?  

Let me help you win those costume contests, give you a lasting look at a party, or simply stand out from the crowd. Masks and cheap makeup products from the drugstore don’t always cut it – make sure your look is perfect this year and contact me to book your appointment this Halloween.

Don’t wait!

Erin Ross to Lead Makeup and Hair for East Valley Children’s Theater Production

I am excited to announce that I will be heading the makeup and hair department for East Valley Children’s Theater’s production of King Thrushbeard!

This folktale follows the story of Cora, a spoiled princess who is forced to marry Reginald, a king disguised as a poor beggar, as they go through trials and tribulations to find that there is “more to people than meets the eye”.  

East Valley Children’s Theater has a long history of creating shows “by kids and for kids”. The EVCT team teaches children ages 8-18 essential skills on and off stage, and still creates a one-of-a-kind show with extraordinary production value.

As an EVCT alumni, I am beyond thrilled to work with such a talented group of individuals on this wonderful show running September 28 – October 8. This will be a must see for children of all ages.

Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Photo Shoot With Boutwell Photography

Halloween is only 5 days away - and that means so is Dia De Los Muertos, aka Day of the Dead!

Last month I had the opportunity to work with Steve Boutwell, owner of Boutwell Photo to create this creepy yet beautiful sugar skull look. The model, Rachel Zaner, was wonderful to work with, and because of her extensive dance background, was able to give us unique and graceful shots - perfect for Dia De Los Muertos and Halloween alike.

Children’s First Academy Picture Day

Each year, the student’s from Children’s First Academy located right in the heart of Phoenix look forward to picture day solely because of the efforts of a non-profit group of photographers: “Through Each Other’s Eyes”. They donate their time and equipment to give inner city kids, many living in poverty, school pictures – something that a lot of us take for granted.

Along with the photos, I and a group of wonderful stylists volunteered our time to gel the boys hair and style the girls hair with bows and headbands that they took home with them along with a comb for each child.

Theater Makeup Case Study: Seussical the Musical

I’ve always had a soft spot for live theater – it’s definitely one of my favorite makeup service I provide. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to be the Key Makeup Artist for one of my absolute favorite shows: Seussical the Musical with Arizona College Prep’s Drama Company. If you are not familiar with the show, it consists of a large cast full of fanciful, classic Dr. Seuss characters from books like the Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Preparing for a show this grand, a lot of planning and communication was necessary to make the Director’s vision a reality. I sketched different looks, planned side by side with other designers of the show, and chose what makeup would be most vivid to capture the colors of Dr. Seuss’s imagination while also holding up to the test of live theater: dancing, running around, and many costume changes.

Using a mixture of products from Krylon, Ben Nye, Mac, and other professional lines, actors were taught how to apply stage makeup while I personally applied makeup to characters like the Bird Girls, Mayzie La Bird, and the Jungle of Nool.
