Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Birdies Campaign Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Tiger House Films commercial production company team on their Birdies campaign video. I was the lead Los Angeles makeup artist, wardrobe stylist and creative coordinator on this project.

To create our model’s makeup look for this campaign I used Anastasia Beverly Hills products. Our clients were going for light smokey eyes, wavy hair and minimalistic styling. The process of creating Olga’s smoky eye was a simple 5 step process:

1) I prepped for the smokey eyes with a long-wear eye base

2) Applied a medium shadow on the lower lid up into the crease, then layer a darker medium shadow on top to build intensity.

3) Used an eye pencil and a gel liner in black color

4) Curled the lashes and added fake eyelashes for the more intensive look

I love my job as a Los Angeles makeup artist and I love working with a wide range of different looks and styles that my clients request. I get excited about working with luxury brands such as Birdies. I am always curious as to what I can contribute to these projects. Most of all, I delight in seeing my work used by clients in their social media posts, advertising campaigns, and websites.

Birdies are the most versatile slippers in the world. Birdies combines elevated style, luxurious comfort, and everyday versatility.

Los Angeles HMUA | Bombino aka Deran Alkheir Dance Video

Los Angeles HMUA | Bombino aka Deran Alkheir Dance Video

As a Los Angeles HMUA, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Bombino aka Deran Alkheir. In this blog article I’ll explain a couple of useful tricks on how I created the hair and makeup looks for the dancers in this production.

I spent most of my time focusing on the female dancer’s smokey eye makeup and lips because these are the only parts of the body Tuaregs show due to the limitations of their traditional clothing. Old or young, male or female, each Tuareg seems to cultivate a personal style expressed through a few simple items of fabric.

For the dancers hair styling we used head wraps called cheches whose fabric can stretch to 18 feet in length, plus flowing gowns called bubus that allow air flow while deflecting heat and blowing sand, dressing like a traditional Tuareg can at first seem a confining enterprise. We had to hide all their hair under these head wraps and adjust it during the shoot. I love my job as a Los Angeles HMUA, I always have the opportunity to work on original and artistic projects.

This music video was directed and produced by Jonathan Wing and choreography by Hillary Pearson. I had 2 dancers from Los Angeles to do hair and makeup for. We shot this video using different color lights which created a futuristic and mysterious environment in a Downtown LA studio.

About Bombino: For centuries, the desert town of Agadez has served as a converging point for the great camel caravans driven by the Tuareg that link West Africa with North Africa and the Mediterranean. Born in 1980 at a nomadic camp near this dusty outpost, the young guitarist and songwriter Omara “Bombino” Moctar was raised during an era of armed struggles for Tuareg independence and violent suppression by government forces. Bombino’s electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion while echoing with guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Touré not to mention rock and blues icons such as Jimi Hendrix, John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Page.

Los Angeles Top Hair and makeup artist | TILTA Commercial

Los Angeles Top Hair and makeup artist  | TILTA Commercial

As a Los Angeles top hair and makeup artist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with several well-known clients with brands such as Converse, Pinterest, Forever21, ANTA, MONTBLANC, Alibaba, Etam, Oppo, just to name a few. My experience in photo shooting, creative directory tasks, and commercial shoots led me to a recent gig I had with Overturn Media and our client, TILTA.

The client, TILTA, is a digital company founded in 2008 dedicated to creating high-resolution cameras. TILTA wanted to introduce their new camera KO filter in the digital market. I had got the opportunity to present my creativity in the Los Angeles top hair and makeup artist because she is in the list of top hair and makeup artists of Los Angeles.  In this commercial, I worked two professional dancers. The challenge for me was to style the hair and makeup in a way that was classy and simple, but elegant, while also taking into account the corresponding costumes, the location of the shoot, and the color coordination of TILTA’s new KO camera filter.

For this project, Overturn wanted someone who can enhance the features of the commercial, and they considered me among the list of top hair and makeup artists of Los Angeles. Overturn is a versatile company consisting of “storytellers who help brands build a narrative and create a unique experience for their consumers with a focus on design principles, problem-solving and creative storytelling”.

Professional Makeup Artist | Fundamental Coast

Professional Makeup Artist | Fundamental Coast

As a professional makeup artist, I was recently able to work with Fundamental Coast. I worked with them for the first time last year, and I hope to work on more campaigns with them. This project was shot on location around Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles. It took us two days to finish the shoot and I really loved the results.

Fundamental Coast’s brand is centered on the coastal culture including surfing, skating, action sports, etc. Most of their products reflect the lifestyle of their area. It was fun to be part of a shoot in such a good location. When doing makeup for lifestyle pictures it is essential to get to know the brand and to work around what the brand stands for.

Fundamental Coast is a lifestyle brand and as such, they wanted to create lifestyle looks. Doing makeup for lifestyle looks has become an easy job to do for me. They have a pretty relaxed yet fun feel in their products. The kind of products that you can use indoors and most especially for outdoor activities. Most of their apparel is for weekend escapades and fun trips. It was tricky at first to capture what a lifestyle look is, because it needs a degree of discipline to do the research on what matches a particular lifestyle brand, but over time if you are an experienced makeup artist, you master the techniques.

I want to share some of the practices related to being a professional makeup artist. Some of these practices have really helped me to become excellent at my job.

  1. Practice makes perfect

Makeup is also artistry, and personally, I practice a lot in order to achieve the level of skill I currently have. Despite my current experience, I still practice every day. Learning by experience will help you perfect your skill. It is worth noting how effective it is to learn from the experts as well.

2. Experiment and just go for it.

Most successful makeup artists have their own makeup style or expertise. I think if you like to experiment with makeup, then you will eventually get distinct results. There are a lot of makeup artists experimenting and going all out on creativity which push the boundaries of our industry.

  1. Stay updated with the latest trends

This is extremely important in my case. Having to work with many brands, I am expected to know what is trending. I must be current with the styles that are popular in the moment. Having basic knowledge will only get you far, but keeping your mind on trends and demands will keep you ahead of the game.

I am enjoying my job as a professional makeup artist and I love working with a wide range of looks and stlyes that my clients request. I get excited about working with brands and about what I can contribute to their project. Most of all, I love the delight of seeing my work used by clients in some of their major campaigns.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Being a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles has some totally fun perks. The other day I was at the Grove, and the advertisement I worked on appeared on the billboard! This is one of the projects I had fun working on, and what I am proud of, is that this particular campaign I did with Essentia called the Overachievers Nation was marketed heavily throughout the United States. We shot with the celebrity singer and songwriter, Arlissa, who flew all the way from London. She looked gorgeous in the advertisement.

My goal is to keep the consistent work I am getting as a celebrity stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles who works with video shoots for big brands. For this campaign, I worked with STORIES International which is a trusted agency and commercial production company from Los Angeles. They have handled campaigns for well-known companies such as Sony, Subaru, KFC, IKEA, etc. STORIES International has a long list of clients on their website. The Overachievers Nations is directed by the talented Austin Will, who has done works for Puma, Nike, and other active lifestyle related campaigns.

The campaign took us one day to shoot. We did the production at Hotel Cafe which is a Hollywood club. I was excited to get my hands on the job to shoot on that day. I did the celebrity stylist tasks first and we started choosing pieces for Arlissa’s wardrobe. She was fun to style because she got the unique, fit and gorgeous look perfect for the Essentia brand.

After taking care of her wardrobe, we immediately proceeded to Arlissa’s makeup. For her makeup, we chose the natural look. The concept of the video is centered on what she does, that is why we want her to look as natural and comfortable as she regularly does. I really liked working on the look because she seemed effortlessly stunning in the photos, especially when I saw the ad on the billboard.

The advertisement was also shown on different platforms all over the United States. It was seen in print, online and billboard, including that one in the premium location at the Grove, Los Angeles. I always feel delighted when I  see a campaign I worked on, especially this Overachievers Nation project. Essentia was a great company to work with. It was a pleasure completing this beautiful advertisement. If you want to have a peek of the advertisement, you can also see the video on their website.

Essentia currently provides smooth tasting alkaline bottled water and has been popular with athletes who play physically demanding sports or go through lots of energy and demanding tasks every day. These people need to replenish and refresh after their arduous workouts. Arlissa was indeed a perfect person for this ad as she performs and burns through energy very quickly on stage.

Overall, it was a memorable experience and seeing the billboard made me realize how rewarding it is to be a celebrity stylist or celebrity makeup artist. Los Angeles is a great place for this profession. You get to meet amazing people and brands, and you get to see your work shown and admired by strangers as well as the general public.

TV Commercial makeup artist and hairstylist | BRIOGEO

TV Commercial makeup artist and hairstylist | BRIOGEO

When I am not styling celebrity wardrobes, I also take projects as a TV commercial makeup artist and hairstylist. I was recently hired by an advertising agency to help them do the hair makeup for one of their clients, Briogeo. Working with hair may seem easy, but it can get tricky. But this makes it even more exciting job!

I want to also say a few things about my client Briogeo. Briogeo makes hair products which are specific to your hair’s texture. You can choose a product for repair, if you want to add volume to your hair, or you just want to enhance your curls. Their formulas are also free of harmful chemicals and irritants including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, DEA and synthetic color.

What I did for this project  as a TV commercial makeup artist was to create before and after hair and makeup looks on camera for this production. This work was fun because I got to see the actual changes happen in real time on the models before and after I styled them. Starting with the before look, I applied the hair conditioner and other hair products. After washing and drying the hair, I created simple looks for each model.

Being a TV Commercial makeup artist and hairstylist is an advantage when you want to get jobs especially for advertising campaigns. It is a plus when you have this set of skills combined. You already have a set of skills to complete a look from A to Z.  For me, these two jobs combine naturally because I love making people look beautiful, having multiple skills to apply to my job is a bonus.

I want to throw in some tips for those who want to work as a TV Commercial makeup artist and hairstylist. The most important skill is creativity. And for me, I think creativity is in every one of us. Anyone can be creative. A hairstylist also needs to be a good communicator. The job gets easier when you know how to talk to your clients, and how to make your model more comfortable. After years on the job, I got to learn to be more open to new ideas and new techniques. You have to know how to accept feedback and comments and improve your work in the process. And most of all, a skill that people do not mention often is that you have to be interested in personal grooming as well.

Hairstyling for TV commercials is a little bit different from styling for editorial and other photography centered campaigns. This was definitely the case for Briogeo because they are a brand of hair products and the hair was the focus in this TV commercial.

How I got the Briogeo job was through an advertising agency. Sometimes agencies source TV commercial makeup and hairstylists, especially if you already have a list of campaigns in your CV. I love getting jobs from production companies as well. I also have clients who contact me directly.
