Hair And Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Luxury Villa Branded Video

Hair And Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Luxury Villa Branded Video

As a hair and makeup artist Los Angeles I was working on a branded video shoot for a luxury villa last year. The video was produced by the BLNK production company in Shanghai, China. We were starting our shoot in the bathroom where I was creating a very natural makeup look. Later at the day, our model was wearing a cocktail dress which is when I changed her look to smokey cat eyes and red lips.

Smoky eye or cat eye makeup looks are stunning on their own, however combining the 2 looks will create one pair of seriously smokin’ eyes. Recently we’ve been seeing more and more of this kind of eye makeup exposure on commercials, on the red carpet, fashion week, celebrity events, and on gals around the city. Smoky eyes and dark red lips can work perfectly together, our model looked stunning with this mix, combining the boldness of the classic red lip with the flirty vibe of smokey cat eyes.

The trick to getting red lips right is a great lip liner – this helps your lipstick last longer and allows you to achieve an excellent shape. The key to making red lips look sophisticated, and not messy, is careful application. ‘Red lipstick is a source of strength,’ says Poppy King, creator of Lipstick Queen. ‘You put it on and suddenly you feel more capable than you did without it.’ Debbie Harry asserted herself in the boys’. As a hair and makeup artist in Los Angeles directors, photographers, creatives often ask for this makeup look during shoots.

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

As a professional makeup artist in LA I was working with fashion model / influencer Kenzo Lauren on an editorial beauty shoot in Los Angeles. The fashion shoot entitled Hollywood Shine, has been published by Dear Velvet on their online blog. We found Kenzo while I was looking for fashion models in the Los Angeles area. We arranged this photo shoot in several locations in Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica, launching our first fashion photo collaboration.

Most importantly we were going for a high end look on this shoot, inspired by the Oscars. From gold makeup to sparkling nails, the looks exuded Hollywood glamour. I managed Kenzo’s makeup and styling for this editorial. Eye makeup speaks volumes about your style and when done right, it has the power to be immensely transformative. So it did for Kenzo. I chose matching cocktail dresses to complete her look for this shoot.

As a professional makeup artist in LA, I always arrive to fashion shoots with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. Highlighter is the ultimate photo-ready secret. On this editorial I used gold and silver glitter as well for eye shadow. A little glitter liner is a super fun way to add some sparkle to your look. 

Dear Velvet is a diary of style, creativity and wanderlust. We first connected in 2015 with the DV team and since then, they have published several amazing articles about my work as a professional makeup artist in LA.

From the founder of DV : “Art and fashion, writing, photography and sheer curiosity keep me up late, playing in the digital world and on the road in the real one.”

As an Instagram fashion makeup artist based in Los Angeles, I constantly get approached with interesting concepts. This fashion brand film production was created as a result of inspiration to create imagery of wild rebellious American youth in urban-industrial Los Angeles.

Tiger House Films teamed with fashion designer Emily Daccarett. Our fashion film and commercial production team was able to execute an idea derived from an edgy conceptual approach. Our goal was to ultimately showcase her designs and accessories while telling the story of the aftermath of a jewelry store robbery by our by two young new recruits to a gang of hardened thieves.

Shot in a Chinatown warehouse, the Tiger House Films production team fully utilized the space, adding production design and smoke effects to create a moody atmosphere inside the location. Our main models for this production were Katherine Rodriguez and Eugene Huriev. The stunt performer / actor was Rage Stewart.

All of our models made this production memorable, their makeup had to match the edgy concept, this shoot definitely highlighted my creativity as an Instagram fashion makeup artist based in Los Angeles.

Shanghai The Neon City Instagram Makeup Artist and Stylist

Shanghai The Neon City Instagram Makeup Artist and Stylist

As an Instagram makeup artist, it is always challenging for me to create different looks that catch the eye of the internet audience. This project was one of the special ones that got viral attention. We called it Shanghai Neon. With makeup and styling alone, you can do so much to get the look and feel you are going for. In Shanghai the locations were already incredible and we just had to bring our imagination. As an Instagram makeup artist and stylist I love to bring in projects with futuristic elements.

I created the Instagram makeup and hair style looks for this project with a really futuristic vibe inspired by Blade Runner. From the clunky, utilitarian vehicles on the streets to the hulking megatowers that dominate the skyline, Shanghai is a city that’s both a vision of the future and grounded in the modern day. I used blue color neon eye shadows and matched with purple underline eye shadow and pink lipstick. We painted the model’s nails a neon color as well to get the full look.

For wardrobe styling we were going for a ultra modern look so we used MONCLER down filled jackets. The women’s Moncler jackets are athletic and have a street-inspired design. Modish urban shapes are fashioned from high-tech materials and down padding for an aesthetic that is as eye-catching on the streets and in the final pictures. I am very excited to have achieved our final vision for this project.
