Freelance Makeup Artist | Cole Haan 2019 SS Fashion Video

As a freelance makeup artist , I’ve had the opportunity to work with Cole Haan on their 2019 SS fashion video. I was the lead makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on this shoot. This fashion commercial campaign was shot in a two bedroom retro house in Hollywood Hills. This unique house was the perfect back drop to our high end fashion campaign for Cole Haan’s new collection.

Our director Magellan Rubin focused on high-end fashion / commercial style coverage of the models while making sure to cover the shoes as a main focal point.

About the director: Magellan Rubin is a director based in Los Angeles, California. He spent the first few years of his career as a cinematographer in Colorado, cutting his teeth on documentaries and later on commercial projects. Eventually, he got into directing and quickly began to make a name for himself by working on commercials for leading brands and music videos for emerging artists. As a director, Magellan strives to create content that drives culture and challenges the limits of storytelling. His current portfolio includes content ranging from narrative films to commercials to music videos.

Cole Haan is a global men’s and women’s footwear and accessories brand that was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1928. Cole Haan currently has headquarters in both New York City and Greenland, New Hampshire, United States.

I had an wonderful time working with Cole Haan’s team as a freelance makeup artist, I hope to create a long lasting relationship with them for the future.

Lemonlight, a production company / advertising agency hired me as a Los Angeles costume designer for their UbU commercial spot a couple of months ago. I love to work with brands who have great taste in their marketing and advertising materials. We shot this commercial spot for 2 days around Venice and Santa Monica beach in Los Angeles, CA.

I styled 5 talents through multiple wardrobe changes during this commercial production. The wardrobe direction given from the director was casual and lifestyle so I brought many options from ZARA and H&M stores.

Celebrity Makeup Artist | LANY x Julia Michaels OKAY Music Video

As a celebrity makeup artist , I’ve had the opportunity to work with LANY x Julia Michaels on their OKAY music video. I was the lead makeup artist and hair stylist on this project.

LANY is an American indie pop band from Los Angeles, formed in 2014. The band consists of Paul Jason Klein, Charles Leslie “Les” Priest, and Jake Clifford Goss. Julia Carin Cavazos, known professionally as Julia Michaels, is an American singer and songwriter from Davenport, Iowa.

The Los Angeles alt-pop band LANY has teamed up with superstar Julia Michaels for its latest single called OKAY. The tune is surprisingly catchy and light for such a heavy topic, but the rhythmic beat adds to the feeling of, yes, maybe I will be okay amidst the darkness.

This music video production for LANY was shot in Venice Beach and in Moonlight Rollerway with an overnight production schedule. With my makeup artist assistant, Mya, we had to stay mobile during the entire shoot. Over the past several years, I’ve been able to polish my skills as a Los Angeles celebrity makeup artist. I’ve managed to gain a vast range of experience, worked with many different clients, and allowing my ambition and energy to assist in the creative process and provide a satisfying result.

I had an wonderful time working with Univeral Music Group, Julia Michaels and LANY‘s team as a celebrity makeup artist, I hope to create a long lasting relationship with them for the future.

Freelance Fashion Stylist | Dear Velvet Editorial Shoot

Freelance Fashion Stylist | Dear Velvet Editorial Shoot

As a freelance fashion stylist, I love to travel for work. I had the luck of flying to the Philippines to style an editorial for Dear Velvet blog. My concept was to use only scarves as outfits. As DV said “One scarf really can do it all. Every travel article I’ve ever read advises taking a scarf to wear as a bandana, blanket, hankie and so on: it’s a camping staple. Packing just one thing seems like a revolutionary idea. Truly, just one scarf can double for almost every item in your wardrobe.”

A classic silk scarf is an investment piece in your wardrobe, that never goes out of style. Wearing a silk scarf with your outfit is a genius way to add instant, effortless chic to any look. But as with many accessories, it’s all in the styling.

Think saris and sarongs, bandanas and bralettes; experiment with twisting and make yourself a halter. Sleeveless or side layered, this is an easy way to dip into the bare shoulder trend. Headscarves, skirts and even bikinis are all there for a little artful tucking and tying. With Summer imminent and the endless hunt for holiday clothes occupying too much of our leisure browsing.

I had a great time working with Dear Velvet team as a freelance fashion stylist and hope to collaborate with him in the future. Here you can take a look on the editoral: https://dearvelvet.com/category/style/page/3/

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Lifestyle shoot in DTLA

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Lifestyle shoot in DTLA

Being a Los Angeles makeup artist I would like to share with you a couple of tricks and basic fixes which will help to deal with shiny or uneven skin tone, tired eyes, and unpronounced features in general. In real life, there’s nothing targeting and bouncing light off of your face, washing out your features. The human eye sees differently than the lens of a camera, which is why you look very different in the mirror versus in a picture.

Let’s start with the basics:

Mattifying, full-coverage base makeup will help your skin to look soft and even, plus it will combat shininess. Using a makeup brush will help to blend the product into a natural-looking finish.

Next up – Foundation: With a foundation brush, blend foundation evenly all over clean, moisturized skin.

Don’t forget the concealer: Apply your foundation first and then conceal the problem areas that still stand out. Use a minimal amount of concealer and blend well.

Last but not least – Translucent Powder: Lightly sweep powder over the center of the forehead, the center of the nose, and chin. Apply it as a final step, so you can tell where you need it, it will remove shine. A glow-y complexion looks great in person, but on camera, it can reflect like an oil slick. The trick is to leave the dewiness on your cheeks, but keep the middle of your face matte.

Check out my next blog articles for other on camera makeup tricks like creating natural eyebrows, eyeshadow,  eyelashes, lipstick and applying bronzer, blush, and highlighter for contouring.

Image Consultant In Los Angeles | Just Cavalli Private Event In China

Working as an image consultant in Los Angeles is a very exciting job. As an image consultant you are specialist who improve the personal or professional image of a client. You evaluate, enhance and upgrade your client’s look, behavior and communication skills to ensure that their image is consistent with their personal or professional goals. When I lived in China I collaborated with Just Cavalli‘s PR team and they flew me to Chengdu to host a private event to their clients.

Image Consultant Responsibilities:

  • Schedule comprehensive initial meetings with clients to ascertain their personal and professional goals.
  • Assess, improve and transform the client’s image, behavior and communication skills that will distinguish them from the crowd.

The event’s theme: For the Just Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2014-15 pre-collection, Roberto Cavalli was inspired by a fascinating journey to the East, from the mysterious Persian lands to the incredible Turkish landscapes. Kilim rugs, medal embellishments, fringes and woven accents have become the distinctive elements for both day-wear and evening-wear pieces.

Classic shapes, geometric details and intense colors are mixed with arabesque motifs and animal-prints, to create a glamorous and contemporary look. The Just Cavalli Women’s pre-collection presents a feminine soul, but with a rock’n’roll and androgynous edge thanks to a series of iconic items such as the classic biker leather jacket, the Montgomery coat and the striped tops infused with Oriental-inspired elements.

Los Angeles Personal Stylist | Menswear Business Casual Look

Los Angeles Personal Stylist | Menswear Business Casual Look

As a Los Angeles personal stylist, I love to work with individuals who has the eye for luxury and trendy clothes. I styled Ashok, a Shanghai based fashion model during our collaboration. His style is sophisticated and modern, I just had to coordinate his wardrobe looks during our photo shoot.

By definition, menswear business casual look is a style that’s not quite as formal as traditional office wear, but nevertheless still created to render a professional or business-like impression. Naturally, that leaves plenty of room for interpretation. Not helping is the inclusion of the word “casual”, which historically imparts visions of men in Hawaiian t-shirts, shorts and sandals. To that we would say: just go ahead and try wearing truly casual wardrobe to the office on a regular workday and see how far it gets you. In other words, business casual is still far more “business” than it is “casual”, and that’s absolutely a good thing.

As a Los Angeles personal stylist I styled Ashok in 3 different looks. The first one was a formal modern man’s suit , the second was a street style and the third look a full on jeans outfit. Personal stylists help clients achieve their desired looks by aiding them in the selection of personal style items, such as clothes, shoes and accessories. Sometimes these services extend even further than clothing selection; personal stylists can also work with home decoration or advising hair and makeup looks.

I had a great time working with Ashok as a Los Angeles personal stylist and hope to collaborate with him in the future.
