Makeup Artist and Hollywood Historian Erin Parsons Wants Us to "Embrace the Fantasy"

Erin Parsons has captivated TikTok, Youtube and Instagram with her incredible historically-accurate makeup tutorials and fascinating makeup recipe recreations. Prior to amassing nearly 3 million followers across those platforms, she was obsessed with classic movies and makeup, leading her to assist Dame Pat McGrath and eventually work with supermodels like Gigi Hadid and Gisele, all of the top fashion magazines, and become Maybelline's Global Makeup Artist. She joins Kirbie on the pod to discuss how people consumed makeup back in days of Marilyn Monroe and how stars really "sold the fantasy" before things like high definition cameras came into the picture, how researching and learning about makeup has helped her to procure some iconic cosmetic artifacts — like pieces from Monroe's actual makeup kit — what she hopes we bring back from the early aughts, and her favorite drugstore makeup recommendations.
