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.

Key Make-Up Artist in Los Angeles | ANTARCTICA Short Film

Key Make-Up Artist in Los Angeles | ANTARCTICA Short Film

As a key make-up artist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Xi He, director of his Antarctica short film. I was the lead makeup artist and hair stylist on this project. We were shooting for 5 days in Los Angeles.

Our cinematographer was Laura Jansen. Laura was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in a small suburban town 25 miles south of the city. Much of her free time as an only-child was spent either in front of a television screen or in a movie theater. It was there that she fell in love with film’s ability to completely immerse her in the narrative and take her to a different place entirely.

I love my job as a 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 directors such as Xi He and cinematographer Laura Jansen. 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, films, campaigns, and websites. In this short film for our actors, I created natural and camera-ready hair/makeup looks.

I had a great time collaborating with Xi He and his team as a key make-up artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.

Professional Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Drunk Elephant Collaboration

Professional Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Drunk Elephant Collaboration

As a professional makeup artist in Los Angeles, I collaborated with Drunk Elephant, clean-compatible skincare products made with efficacious levels of ingredients like L-Ascorbic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Marula Oil.

The brand name Drunk Elephant is rooted in a myth that says the elephants love to eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees. Once eaten, fermentation occurs inside their very large tummies and the elephants become drunk! Virgin Marula oil, straight from the “pip”, can be found throughout the Drunk Elephant line. It is an oil that Masterson believes is superior to ANY she’s tried due to the high content of fatty acids and antioxidants.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of the Drunk Elephant, I can have my skincare products fully stocked. Their products are amazing, I love to use them on my shoots. Included in your kit should be the basics: brushes, disposables, sanitation, skincare, and tons of makeup that should be versatile and used for different skin types and tones. Your own kit is unique to you because you have the types of products and tools that you’re comfortable with.

In the entertainment industry, Film and TV might be one of the hardest makeup to create since you’re trying your hardest to make the subject look natural but using products that are HD friendly and full coverage.

I had a wonderful time collaborating with Drunk Elephant as a professional makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.

Makeup Artist in Atlanta | Filming in Atlanta, Georgia

Makeup Artist in Atlanta | Filming in Atlanta, Georgia

As a makeup artist in Atlanta, there are many ways to learn how to become a makeup artist in Atlanta. Georgia’s film incentives provide thousands of jobs to aspiring actors, filmmakers, costume designers, and make-up artists. I travel a lot for work so I often fly to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Miami as well for different projects.

Getting into the industry is not easy. Originally I’m from Hungary, Budapest. One thing I always say is everyone’s journey is different. As for me, I started out by doing makeup for private events and friends in Shanghai, China. I lived/worked in China for 5 years which thought me to stand on my feet in every situation. The way I got into doing makeup for productions was actually by starting out as a wardrobe stylist. I got to know the production team, agencies, and clients and then eventually started assisting other makeup artists and the journey continued from there.

in 2017 I moved to the United States and my adventure continued here. I am very grateful for this decision every day because I found my place in the world where I can do what I love the most which are styling and makeup. I enjoy creating and the US is giving me creative freedom so I’m very thankful for that.

Being a makeup artist in Atlanta, working in different locations, projects also allows me to be flexible, research, purchase, and try different beauty lines, techniques. It is a very productive playground for a makeup artist and hairstylist like myself with such creative opportunities to work on various films, TV commercials, and fashion shoots.

Atlanta Makeup Artist | Travel Tips for Hair and Makeup Artists

Atlanta Makeup Artist | Travel Tips for Hair and Makeup Artists

As an Atlanta makeup artist, I love to travel for work. My job as a makeup artist isn’t a stationary one. I enjoy to go to a new space as my “office”, then pack up and have a different location the next day. Thankfully, I learned this early on in my career and always had my sights on traveling for my work.

Traveling, also means transporting your makeup, I always follow these tips:

1) Think Before You Pack – Brainstorming before you pack will save you a lot of time and ensure that you bring just what you need – say goodbye to over (or under) packing! Consider these three things when you’re deciding what to pack: who your agency/production company/client is, what kind of makeup they’re requesting, and what environment you’ll be working in.

2) Create an Inventory List Once you decide what you’re bringing with you, take an inventory.

3) Purchase Insurance if you can Insuring your kit is a great way to put your mind at ease and make sure you’re covered from any accident

4) Check-in or Carry on your makeup bag(s) For many hair and makeup artists, checking their bag is not an option so you will need to separate your kit what you can carry on and needs to be checked in with the airline.

Being an Atlanta makeup artist, working in exotic places also allows me to research, purchase, and try different beauty lines. It is a creative playground for an artist like myself to be up close and personal with such textures and colors of different landscapes, people, and places.
