Beverly Hills Personal Shopper | Louis Vuitton X Exhibition

Beverly Hills Personal Shopper | Louis Vuitton X Exhibition

As a Beverly Hills personal shopper, I love to attend events and exhibitions. In 2019, I had the luck of visiting the Louis Vuitton X Exhibition in Beverly Hills, California.

Louis Vuitton has created an exhibition in Los Angeles, CA that showcases its collaborations with leading artists over the past 160 years, complete with custom bags and a tropical pop-up shop. The Louis Vuitton X exhibition at the 468 North Rodeo Drive building in Beverly Hills contained 180 items from the French fashion house’s archive.

Being a personal stylist in Beverly Hills, I help my clients to achieve their desired looks for everyday life, red carpet events, etc by aiding them in the selection of personal style items, such as clothes, shoes, accessories and advising on their hair-makeup styles. Some of my clients prefer to shop together, while some want I shop for them. Usually, I identify my client’s tastes, activities, body type, and desired image in order to tailor a look to each client’s needs.

Shopping in high-end stores such as Louis Vuitton is definitely one of my favorite stops on my personal styling days. Louis Vuitton introduced some of the most famous bags in the world, such as the Speedy Bag and the Neverfull Tote. At this exhibition, we had the pleasure of checking out these iconic pieces in 10 vibrantly colored rooms. Included in the exhibition are six Louis Vuitton Monogram leather duffle bags that have been reinterpreted by renowned artists and designers.

I had a great time attending the Louis Vuitton X Exhibition as a Beverly Hills personal shopper and hope to collaborate with them in the future.

Working as a Los Angeles makeup artist, my clientele includes mostly celebrity makeup, advertising, commercial and fashion projects. As well as, red carpet events, editorial and beauty photoshoots.

In order to become a makeup artist in Los Angeles, I needed to perfect my skills and put myself out there. Working in L.A. gave me the right experience to travel anywhere in the world.

Working in Hollywood as a makeup artist is exciting. Refining your skills and showing off your unique talent, you can impress the right person and launch your career. Addressing your makeup skills for TV and film sets is crucial. With the leading quality of today’s technology and video, your applications need to be perfect.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Antonym Cosmetics Partnership

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Antonym Cosmetics Partnership

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I collaborated with Antonym Cosmetics, an organic makeup range that is made with certified natural and organic ingredients. The brand range is free of chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, and phthalates.

Antonym Cosmetics was founded by Miami makeup artist Valerie Giraud who sought to create the best organic makeup and makeup brushes that were cruelty-free and gentle on the skin. According to Val, natural makeup doesn’t have to mean a natural look. This is why Antonym Cosmetics is certified natural and organic and highly pigmented.

Natural or “clean” beauty has blown up in recent years. As a Los Angeles beauty makeup artist, I care more about non-toxic ingredients and I’m making a conscious effort to pay close attention to harmful chemicals commonly found in makeup products, like parabens. When I choose the right foundation, blush, lip color of my models, actors, and clients I make sure to look for the most natural-looking match.

The cruelty-free organic Antonym Cosmetics’ coverage is sheer but build-able up to medium, and the velvet matte finish is one of the best skin-like finishes I’ve ever seen.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my hair and makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of Antonym Cosmetics, I can have my kit products fully stocked. Their products are truly amazing, I love to use them on my shoots.

I had a great time collaborating with Antonym Cosmetics, as a hair and makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them for the future.

Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Kari Gran Skin Care Collaboration

Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Kari Gran Skin Care Collaboration

As a makeup artist in Los Angeles, California, I collaborated with Kari Gran, an eco-luxe and simple skincare solution beauty brand.

About Kari Gran: All of their hand-poured products are made using only the finest naturally derived, organic, wild-harvested, and non-GMO ingredients. Their oil-based system harnesses plant and essential oils to gently and safely nourish the skin. The products do not have any added water to ensure you’re only getting the ingredients that matter in a potent and effective state.

At Kari Gran, they choose to formulate without parabens as they stay away from ingredients that are linked to harmful diseases or are known to disrupt our body’s natural processes. Sustainable beauty has never been more timely. Kari Gran is very impressive for its luxurious skincare benefits as it is for its environmentally-friendly ethos.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of Kari Gran, I can have my skincare products fully stocked. Their products are amazing, I love to use them on my shoots.

With respect to the cosmetics industry in 2020, “green” and “sustainable” cosmetics are defined as cosmetic products using natural ingredients produced from renewable raw materials. Luckily nowadays, many companies use petrochemical ingredients derived from petrol, a non-renewable and economically volatile resource.
On set it is very important to me to use the highest quality products on my clients because wearing makeup every day can dry out your skin quickly if you are not moisturizing / taking care of your skin properly.

I had a wonderful time collaborating with Kari Gran, as a makeup artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.
