ABOUT THE ARTIST
As far back as Bryin can remember he’s been drawing women’s faces. His passion for art and beauty eventually led him to New York City in 1990. Before starting his rewarding career as a hair and makeup artist, Bryin got his degree in Advertising and worked as an art director for powerhouse agencies McCann Erickson in Los Angeles and Grey Advertising in New York. Having an art director's eye helped Bryin quickly transition into the beauty industry. Bryin found himself assisting top makeup artists Kevyn Aucoin, Pat McGrath, and Francois Nars each season for New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park. Learning from these talented artists helped Bryin establish his own distinctive style of makeup.
For more than twenty years Bryin’s signature style of hair and makeup has graced the runways of top designers, national and international commercials, major fashion magazines, and many celebrities; including Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, Reese Witherspoon and Brooke Shields. In 2001, Bryin was awarded makeup artist of the year by NAHA, and in 2005 Bryin made WWD BEAUTY BIZ magazine’s prestigious the IT LIST, as one of Hollywood’s Glam Squad artists.
Bryin recently reignited his passion for painting and is quickly being recognized in the art world as "One To Watch." www.bryinsmoot.com
