A couple of months ago, I attended a Beauty Event at Beauty Bar that opened up in Harlem and I was connected with 2 really cool makeup artists that I continue to keep in touch with. One of them, Miss Erika Hardison, is on her way to building her own Brand!
Makeup Artist, Writer, Beauty Contributor, Skincare Expert, and Publicist are just a few titles under this Beauty Mavens belt! Now proud owner of her own Beauty Magazine, FABULIZE, Erika is pursuing her lifelong dream to educate women on beauty.
Erika has been doing makeup since her teenage years, the perfect time to construct her craft by learning to conceal teenage acne, by studying skincare and using natural ingredients to treat her skin. After High School, Erika enrolled in Columbia College to get certified in makeup artistry and been doing makeup ever since. Erika has worked with noted photographers and designers, such as; New York Couture, Walish Gooshe, Miss Bruno, Steve Prue, Sidney Etiene and Steve Azzura. Some of Erika’s favorite products include, Makeup For Ever and Nars, “I love makeup that is multifunctional, that is high quality and very blendable”.
Erika loves creativity, expressing herself through her unique beauty art form and the independence that being a Makeup Artist offers. Through these specific characteristics, and wanting to educate women of color, FABULIZE was formed. Erika wants FABULIZE to be a platform where women can learn to “Fabulize” themselves by understanding skin tone, type and product education, by enhancing what you were born with! With that being said, Erika is working hard to make, FABULIZE, the “Brown Girls Version of Allure”, talk about finding a niche and running with it! I’m looking forward to reading the articles of FABULIZE, and I encourage all lovers of Beauty to as well!
Not only is Erika working on FABULIZE, but also working on future cosmetics line and various projects that include maintaining her position as being a beauty contributor to D.A.M. Magazine. So Get Chic and Fabulize with Erika at FABULIZE Magazine!
