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.

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

As a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles, I was hired by HCI advertising last year for their Scotch Porter TV Commercial shoot. We had a night shoot in a butcher store in Hollywood. I had about 25 male actors/models to do makeup for. It was a very straightforward shoot because we were going for camera-ready looks.

Being camera-ready means the products and techniques used to achieve the overall look are compatible with high quality cameras that photographers and videographers use. That means you will be HD compatible and as technology advances, makeup products and techniques advance as well. When I work as a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles I always prepare my makeup kit with the essential products.

Camera-ready makeup isn’t concerning heavy coverage or too bright colors. It’s about understanding what the camera is going to see. It’s about proper tone, accentuation. Clean, moisturized skin is that the ideal palette to work on. The camera can pick up on dry or excessively oily skin very easily. Television cameras and bright lights will alter your appearance drastically and there’s no way around it makeup is essential. A primer will ensure that your foundation doesn’t sink into your skin.

Scotch Porter is more than just a brand; it’s a call to action. When Calvin Quallis left the comfort of his cushy desk job last year to pursue his dream of creating the ultimate men’s grooming line, he did so with the intent of making the most stylishly accessible products in the game. Scotch Porter is for the modern day man who wants to look his best at all times. Your first impression is your last impression, and while you rock your distressed denim, cashmere sweater and leather bag or even your suit and tie, we’ve got you covered on the rest. From head to toe.

This fashion commercial production was a collaboration that came together with Shanghai based model Jasin Chang, Director / Cinematographer Jason Kent Carpenter and me as coordiantor and professional makeup artist based in Los Angeles. The urban street wear aesthetic of this fashion project mixes an industrial grunge soundtrack with men’s high fashion.

Jason Operated the camera while I coordinated and did the hair and makeup as well as the styling for the shoot. The team chose the early morning to capture the light across the expansive concrete landscape.

The location we chose, the iconic Los Angeles River, has been the location for countless feature films, fashion commercial productions, music videos and branded content. Most notably, this L.A. River location was the scene for the hot rod drag race in the 1978 movie Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John.

Our model Jasin, started off doing runways and now also shoots campaigns, ads and lookbooks. He has an interest in acting and over the summer landed a small role in a Luc Besson produced feature film.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I often come across professional situations on set where I need a high end product. Whether I am working as a celebrity makeup artist or specifically for fashion, the best makeup produces the best results. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates prestige cosmetics, makeup—including cult-classics like Brow Wiz, Contour Kit, and Liquid Lipstick. Anastasia Beverly Hills is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development. This approach to the creation of their products as well as the high quality contribue to me being a big fan!

As a Los Angeles makeup artist focusing on beauty and fashion production, I absolutely love Anastasia Beverly Hills. This makeup brand especially pops with vibrant eyeshadow colors and the signature Anastasia Golden Ratio Method. I like use all of their makeup products, many of my makeup clients ask for this brand by name.

I work constantly with fashion models and actors on commercial shoots which require many shades of colors and high quality of makeup. Anastasia Beverly Hills has it all. As an LA makeup artist I can see which colors match each individual. Everyone has their own unique style! I like to play with the colors of makeup and advise my clients what fits their complexion best. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates amazing colors of eyeshadows that allow me to be creative.

At the core, Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded on a set of principals that were derived from how the eyebrows define the face. I think Anastasia Soare said it best when she stated; “Our eyes are intrinsically trained to spot divine proportion and immediately associate it with beauty and harmony.” Inspired by this age-old ratio, Anastasia created a unique and breakthrough method of shaping brows. By following these principles, she could create a set of arches that perfectly framed and suited any face shape. The perfect combination to create the illusion of facial balance, symmetry, and proportion.

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, my Anastasia Beverly Hills make up kit helps in all of my fashion shoots to create the looks required from high end advertising agencies and commercial production companies.
