From red carpet clients Jennifer Morrison (“Once Upon a Time,” “House” TV shows) and Rose McIver (“iZombie” TV show), to campaigns for PETA and Old Navy, to editorials for People and Nylon magazines, Aaron Barry’s 12 years experience in makeup and 15 in hair is avid, confident and refreshing.
“Makeup is a skill set where people trust you to create a look for them,” said Barry.
“I like to find someone’s signature look and repeat what they like with a twist, to make every occasion unique.”
Originally from Ireland, Aaron Barry is a Los Angeles-based hair and makeup artist, specializing in hairstyling, image consulting, and makeup application for red carpet, editorial and daytime looks.
Along with Morrison and Greene, over the years he’s acquired a vast celebrity red carpet clientele including Keisha Castle-Hughes (Academy Award nominated), Alexandra Park (“The Royals” TV show), and Heather Hemmens (“If Loving You is Wrong” TV show).
Passionate for editorials, his most memorable ones are of Jennifer Morrison for People Magazine, Sydney Park (“The Walking Dead” TV show) for Vulkan Magazine, and Danielle Moinet (professional wrestler, model, actress, aka Summer Rae) for Instyle. A few other favorite editorials he’s done are of Keisha Castle-Hughes for Nylon, Nicole Trunfio (Australian model) for Galore Magazine, and Emeraude Toubia (“Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” TV show) for Seventeen Magazine.
