How to become a successful Los Angeles celebrity stylist

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist, your job can be very exciting and you can jump from one project to the next. In this blog article, I will give a couple of tips on how to become a successful Los Angeles celebrity stylist.

First of all, you will need to build your network and nurture relationships. As you start working, you’ll meet so many people that can help you along the way including brands, individuals, production companies or agencies.

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist, you need to create your portfolio and figure out your style and what you are good at. For example, I started my career as fashion designer but then quickly realized I’m better at styling so I pursued this career. There are many different categories of fashion styling as well, like celebrity styling, wardrobe styling, editorial styling etc. Find out what kind of work really speaks to you, and pursue that.

Do your research. For every project or event, you will need to spend hours working on your laptop and develop your lookbook which you going to showcase to your clients. Always bring a lot of backup options for dresses, shoes and accessories. On the day of the shoot or event everything can change.

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist you will need to compete with other stylists for the most wanted dresses. In Hollywood the level for a stylist is very high, all of the celebrities want to be the best dressed for their events so you will need to make sure you are the one who styled them. For red carpet events, like the Oscars you have to be really well-planned and organized.

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | Gillette Fuse Commercial

As a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Gillette. and Justin Bell Productions on their new product launch “Gillette Fuse” commercial.

I had 3 talents/models to style and work on their hair and makeup looks.

The client requested V neck and crew-neck tee options with a not-too-high neckline in solid colors: white, grey and Gillette blues only and for bottoms sweats or non-distracting pajama.

We asked the talents to arrive fresh out of the shower hairstyle and contemporary cut, as the makeup looks go I applied camera-ready makeup. The talents shaved on the camera so they had to have 2-3 days of facial hair.

A professional wardrobe stylist is one of the trending professions within the fashion and commercial world globally. What a wardrobe stylist does is select the clothing and accessories for commercials, editorials, print or TVC advertising campaigns and music videos produced by advertising agencies and production companies. This profession is really essential to these companies because if not for the styling and branding, the message of the commercial will not be communicated across to the audience and customers.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the production team on this Gillette commercial. 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.

Las Vegas Professional Makeup Artist | FC Scion Gala Video

Las Vegas Professional Makeup Artist | FC Scion Gala Video

While working in both fields, I have learned  that print makeup is quite different from video makeup. I was hired as a professional makeup artist in Las Vegas where I worked with a commercial production company called Tiger House Films.

Tiger House Films is a dynamic, multi-award winning full-service commercial and brand film production company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, working in New York, San Francisco and nationwide. THF have the combined capabilities of an advertising agency, video production company, and post-production house.

Many brands enjoy shooting in Las Vegas as it can provide a variety of locations. For this particular shoot, I did makeup for actor, Vincent Veillon, and knowing the difference between photo and video makeup is essential for this type of job.

The TV show that we shot is a Swiss comedy show called 26 Minutes. They filmed in many different locations throughout Nevada. Since I really enjoyed the location, I am going to list down some of the things that make Las Vegas my favorite location:

  • Las Vegas is iconic. The city itself is a character, reminding the spectators of its fancy makeup and glittering lights, and people tend to associate it with party and fun.
  • Accessibility and flexibility. If you want to shoot in the dessert, you’re in luck! You’re already there, and if you want want complete isolation, it’s just a short drive away. If you want to shoot on the streets, there are several picturesque streets throughout the city. The city can also provide locations for various different types of shoots. Whether it would be TV shows, fashion, print, commercials, you name it, Las Vegas can provide it.
  • The city is busy with entertainment events. In Las Vegas, very day is a show. Entertainment is endless and non-stop. This creates job opportunities for artists, production companies, production people and everyone who is creative. As a Las Vegas professional makeup artist, you’ll have no trouble finding exciting projects to work on.

In collaboration with PUSH Media, I was hired as the key makeup artist and wardrobe stylist for this major The North Face SS18 campaign.

Most of our creative team flew from Shanghai, China especially to shoot this campaign.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | LXMI

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.
