Well hello there. My name is Erica and I am a Freelance Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist with a love of all things Beauty and Fashion. Growing up and residing in the Fashion Capital of the World, New York City, this love affair has grown beyond the depths of my wildest imagination. With an increasing addiction to buying makeup and beauty products, obsession with shopping for new clothes, shoes and handbags and constantly learning of new trends and happenings, I needed an outlet to share my musings with my fellow Beauty & Fashion Enthusiasts and thus The Glamorous Gleam was born. The Glamorous Gleam is a playground for lovers of all things beauty and fashion to keep you in the know and looking absolutely Glamtabulous. From makeup reviews, makeup and hair tutorials, beauty and fashion tips and trends, glimpses of my personal style and so much more… The Glamorous Gleam will keep you in the loop. As a big foodie you will also find some recipes and restaurant reviews thrown in for good measure!

With my fascination for the art of makeup growing stronger everyday along with constant and consistent improvement of my makeup application skills I was inspired to take my hobby further and decided to freelance in Makeup Artistry. In my quest to continue to grow as an artist, I keep an open ear to the beauty community. You can see my portfolio and rates for makeup application and hair styling on my Artistry Site, Moore Than Just Makeup.

As a brown girl with a love of bright lipstick, you will see me rocking lots of lip colors that we are typically afraid of wearing due to the stigma that brown girl’s shouldn’t rock bright colors. I’m here to let the brown girl’s know that you can rock whatever color you want honey, it’s all in the application and execution. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Feel free to chime in and make yourself at home, and to contact me with any questions or suggestions as I love to hear from my readers.

Happy Reading!
