Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Pop Evil – Be Legendary Music Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Pop Evil on their Be Legendary music video. I was the lead makeup artist and hair stylist on this project.

Pop Evil is an American rock band that was formed in North Muskegon, Michigan in 2001 by Leigh Kakaty. The band’s roots reside in an earlier group known as TenFive, formed in the late-1990s by Leigh Kakaty and guitarist Jason Reed.

Ryan launched Huffman Creative, a full-service production company that specializes in short-form content. In its first year, Huffman Creative produced over 50 projects and was nominated for a VMA for Best Hip Hop video for 2 Chainz & Ariana Grande’s “Rule the World.” While Ryan lives in Los Angeles, he is frequently hired to work onsite in places like New York, Miami, and London.

This music video production for Pop Evil was shot in Los Angeles, California with a 12h production schedule in two days. I 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.

Mobile Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Old Hollywood Beauty

Mobile Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Old Hollywood Beauty

As a mobile makeup artist Los Angeles, Emmanuel Guillermo photographer hired me and model Jenna Curtis for an old Hollywood beauty inspired photoshoot in Los Angeles, California.

Jenna Curtis is an Austrian actress, singer, and model. She grew up in the capital music city of Vienna, where she was trained in Acting and Musical Theatre. In 2013 Jenna moved to Los Angeles, California which has been her home base ever since.  Before Jenna became a singing actress, she was traveling Europe as a model, while working on original Indie-Pop music.

I created an old Hollywood glamour hair and makeup look for Jenna Curtis.Old Hollywood makeup consisting of a killer cat eye, lightly blushed cheeks and, of course, a bright red lip. It’s the perfect go-to look for anyone who wants to look polished but perhaps isn’t too keen on trying a more daring beauty trend of the moment, I absolutely love creating this look for my clients.

Old Hollywood glamour hair and makeup is dramatic but not over-done. This style is to make you look your best and it involves full foundation coverage, accentuated contours, blush, and so on. To create an old Hollywood style evening look, you need to style your wardrobe as well, the best is to choose a floor-length gown of satin or velvet.

It was a pleasure to work with Emmanuel Guillermo and Jenna Curtis on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a mobile makeup artist.

Los Angeles Hair and Makeup Artist | Fashion Shoot with Marlowe Daly

As a Los Angeles hair and makeup artist, Mathieu Jacobs photographer hired me and model Marlowe Daly for a lifestyle,  fashion photoshoot in Los Angeles, California. Mathieu reached out to me directly and he was planning to organize multiple photoshoots across Los Angeles.

Marlowe Daly is signed with @geneticmodels. GENETIC MODELS MANAGEMENT is a premier boutique agency located in Los Angeles, CA. Established in 2012, Genetic strives to scout, develop, and represent the most preeminent talent in the industry. Our diverse team holds experiences across the fashion & art industries, providing our models and clients with outstanding and innovative service.

Mathieu Jacobs is an internationally published fashion and lifestyle photographer after he spent twenty years in Paris he felt that his place was no longer there so he decided to keep the essential and look for the best places on our planet.

As a hair and makeup artist, I created for Marlowe a natural beauty look. Barely-there, au naturel makeup will never go out of fashion.

Natural Looking Makeup Tips:
  • Moisturize and always start with a primer. It fills in fine lines and fades imperfections. Creating a perfect base for your makeup is very important, the camera lens can often magnify
  • Conceal
  • Powder or light foundation
  • Subtle blush
  • Neutral shadows
  • Nude lip
  • Little mascara
  • No liner

It was a pleasure to work with Mathieu Jacobs and @geneticmodels on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a hair and makeup artist.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Creative Artists Agency Event

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Creative Artists Agency Event

As a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles, I got asked by one of my best friends to do her CAA event the Golden Globe Awards hair and makeup look. I created a classic black smokey eye makeup look. This iconic makeup style looks good on everyone and is universally flattering.

Being a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles, I advise these 3 things to know before starting your smokey eye:
  • The key is to always keep the darkest point at the lash line. It keeps the makeup really modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye vs. the makeup.
  • Stick to no more than 3 shadows and a liner to pop your eyes. Keep it simple!
  • Brushes are super important to get that blend. Blend is your friend. When it comes to a smokey eye, it doesn’t matter how dark you go, or what colours you use, it’s how well you can blend the liner and shadow.

The Golden Globe Awards are accolades bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association beginning in January 1944, recognizing excellence in film, both American and International, and American television.

Creative Artists Agency LLC or CAA is an American talent and sports agency based in Los Angeles, California. It is regarded as a dominant and influential company in the talent agency business and manages numerous clients. In March 2016, CAA had 1,800 employees.

Leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) represents many of the most successful and innovative professionals working in film, television, music, video games, theatre, and digital content, and provides a range of strategic marketing and consulting services to corporate clients.

It was a pleasure creating Lubi’s hair and makeup look as a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles.

For this shoot, alongside my duties as a Los Angeles key makeup artist, I was also in charge of the hairstyling as well. Since each of the characters in this brand video are from the 1980s, I needed to ensure the hair and makeup looks for each character were appropriately created in order to represent their stories in the best way possible.

Currently, he’s in post-production on a 1970’s style superhero heist movie – The Hyperions, starring Cary Elwes.
