Shanghai The Neon City Instagram Makeup Artist and Stylist

Shanghai The Neon City Instagram Makeup Artist and Stylist

As an Instagram makeup artist, it is always challenging for me to create different looks that catch the eye of the internet audience. This project was one of the special ones that got viral attention. We called it Shanghai Neon. With makeup and styling alone, you can do so much to get the look and feel you are going for. In Shanghai the locations were already incredible and we just had to bring our imagination. As an Instagram makeup artist and stylist I love to bring in projects with futuristic elements.

I created the Instagram makeup and hair style looks for this project with a really futuristic vibe inspired by Blade Runner. From the clunky, utilitarian vehicles on the streets to the hulking megatowers that dominate the skyline, Shanghai is a city that’s both a vision of the future and grounded in the modern day. I used blue color neon eye shadows and matched with purple underline eye shadow and pink lipstick. We painted the model’s nails a neon color as well to get the full look.

For wardrobe styling we were going for a ultra modern look so we used MONCLER down filled jackets. The women’s Moncler jackets are athletic and have a street-inspired design. Modish urban shapes are fashioned from high-tech materials and down padding for an aesthetic that is as eye-catching on the streets and in the final pictures. I am very excited to have achieved our final vision for this project.

This project highlights my work as a makeup artist and hair stylist by exposing my style to a large social media audience through influencer posts and tags.

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | MTailor TV Commercial

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | MTailor TV Commercial

Recently I was called in by Aris production house to collaborate on an MTailor branded TV commercial shoot. As a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist,  I was hired onto this commercial production as the key wardrobe stylist.

There were 4 actors to style and to make sure their outfits fit perfectly on camera, the director and I collaborated heavily on the concept and mood of the shoot. This TV commercial was shot in 1 day on a location where an airplane was built, dressed and used as set design.

Commercials and branded videos have always been a challenge because the pressure and requirements are very high for demanding brands. As a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist the standards of the industry require that I am extremely detailed and on my game at all times.

MTailor is a custom clothing company that exclusively uses a smartphone app which takes your measurements to create custom shirts, trousers, and suits. The concept of this company is to design perfect fitting custom clothing so this made my job easier, not having to fit each actor (it was already done for me!). All their shirts, suits, jeans, chinos, and tees are made of very high quality materials, the seams are neat and even, the fabric feels durable, and all of the buttons are securely attached.

Styling is one of the most important elements of any fashion brand campaign. It governs how your clothes look in your store and helps to ensure they stand out amongst the sea of similar brands on the market. Every adult male should own a suit—just pay attention to the shade you’ve got.

From Miles, the founder of MTailor:

“At MTailor, we are bringing professional quality custom shirts into the modern era. We make it easy, convenient and fast while maintaining an amazing fit and quality shirts.

In collaboration with PUSH Media, I was hired as the key makeup artist and wardrobe stylist for this major The North Face SS18 campaign. As a Los Angeles makeup artist and wardrobe stylist, my clients demand the highest level of creativity and professionalism, especially when it comes to major brands and fashion campaigns.

This campaign was called THE NORTH FACE Urban Exploration, the separate line is what TNF calls a “downtown expression of the brand.” TNF UE’s direction is balancing utility and high-fashion to make garments and accessories more suitable for the city lifestyle.

As a Los Angeles makeup artist I had the luck to work on this SS18 Black Series Collection video and photo commercial campaign that spanned the length of two days and multiple locations. Our fashion commercial production shot in downtown Los Angeles and Joshua tree in the desert with 2 fashion models. Most of our creative team flew from Shanghai, China especially to shoot this campaign. As I’m a Los Angeles makeup artist and wardrobe stylist it was great to work with creatives from Shanghai, giving us the opportunity to have a cultural mix on set.

THE NORTH FACE is currently showing our Urban Exploration SS18 Black Series Collection on the front page of their website, which gives me huge exposure as an Instagram makeup artist and celebrity wardrobe stylist. I love to work on sports campaigns and with lifestyle, activewear brands. As an Los Angeles makeup artist and Stylist and I work constantly with major sports brands focused on style and shooting to match the brand’s vision and creative ideas.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | LXMI

As a Los Angeles fashion makeup artist, my most important rule is taking care of your skin. This is one of the reasons why we collaborated with LXMI. As a Los Angeles makeup artist I focus on skincare first. I absolutely love to use LXMI because this luxury skincare brand especially pops with organic and natural products. Anyone with sensitive skin will benefit from the natural ingredients this company uses in all of it’s product lines. For this reason, many of my clients ask for this brand by name.

Our collaboration with LXMI started when I reached out to the brand through their website and requested their support of my work as a Los Angeles fashion and commercial makeup artist. Through that connection they sent me their most current products that I love to use. during the commercial shoots I love to use their Nilotica Goddess Glow Hydrating Illuminator, Pure Nilotica Hand & Body Melt Organic and Unrefined Nilotica Reserve creams.

Each of these products has their strong points including keeping the skin hydrated and glowing. Proper skin care is really important because our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have.

Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Having clean and clear skin can help boost your confidence and keep you looking your best! Your face is the first part of you others see when they meet you, so go forward with your best face forward. A daily skin care routine can help you do exactly this. LXMI is the best luxury skin care solution I can suggest to anyone as a Los Angeles make up artist and beauty influencer.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I often come across professional situations on set where I need a high end product. Whether I am working as a celebrity makeup artist or specifically for fashion, the best makeup produces the best results. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates prestige cosmetics, makeup—including cult-classics like Brow Wiz, Contour Kit, and Liquid Lipstick. Anastasia Beverly Hills is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development. This approach to the creation of their products as well as the high quality contribue to me being a big fan!

As a Los Angeles makeup artist focusing on beauty and fashion production, I absolutely love Anastasia Beverly Hills. This makeup brand especially pops with vibrant eyeshadow colors and the signature Anastasia Golden Ratio Method. I like use all of their makeup products, many of my makeup clients ask for this brand by name.

I work constantly with fashion models and actors on commercial shoots which require many shades of colors and high quality of makeup. Anastasia Beverly Hills has it all. As an LA makeup artist I can see which colors match each individual. Everyone has their own unique style! I like to play with the colors of makeup and advise my clients what fits their complexion best. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates amazing colors of eyeshadows that allow me to be creative.

At the core, Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded on a set of principals that were derived from how the eyebrows define the face. I think Anastasia Soare said it best when she stated; “Our eyes are intrinsically trained to spot divine proportion and immediately associate it with beauty and harmony.” Inspired by this age-old ratio, Anastasia created a unique and breakthrough method of shaping brows. By following these principles, she could create a set of arches that perfectly framed and suited any face shape. The perfect combination to create the illusion of facial balance, symmetry, and proportion.

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, my Anastasia Beverly Hills make up kit helps in all of my fashion shoots to create the looks required from high end advertising agencies and commercial production companies.
