Introducing Erwin Gomez Cosmetics September 26 2014
After several years of planning and testing, makeup artist Erwin Gomez has released an exclusive line of cosmetics, available online and at his salon, KARMA by Erwin Gomez, in the West End neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
The line includes lip glosses, eyeshadows, eyeliners and foundation, and all of it was made in Germany and the United States. Since Gomez's specialty are the eyebrows, it should come as no surprise that his collection also features eyebrow pencils – and they're waterproof.
“The best thing about my new cosmetics line is that it really does work for every skin color and type,” said Gomez. “The guests I serve at KARMA and nationally are quite diverse so I wanted to create a product that would make each and every one of them look radiant and beautiful."
With a client list that includes Rosario Dawson (pictured left with the lipstick), Paris Hilton, America Ferrera, Claire Danes, Eva Longora, and Elle Magazine Editor in Chief Robbie Myers, his reputation as one of Washington's premiere makeup artists continues to grow stronger. His experience with celebrity clients shows in his makeup; one of the items in the line is an ECARF-certified foundation for high definition cameras.
Society glossy DC Modern Luxury recently highlighted his collection of bronzers. "Like all of Gomez's powders, the bronzer does double duty as an eye shadow and blush," wrote senior editor Katie Bianco.
