Los Angeles Hair and Makeup Artist | Saddleback Shoot with OX Creates

Los Angeles Hair and Makeup Artist | Saddleback Shoot with OX Creates

As a Los Angeles hair and makeup artist, I often travel for work. During this project, I collaborated with OX Creates and Justin Bell Productions. This spot for the OX Creates, was shot over 2 days in Orange County, California with a stellar Justin Bell Productions commercial production team.

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.

Justin Bell is a feature film, TV, commercial, and new media producer based in Los Angeles. Currently, he’s in post-production on a 1970’s style superhero heist movie – The Hyperions, starring Cary Elwes. In addition to narrative film and TV, Bell specializes in producing commercials and content for non-profit organizations.

OX Creative is a full-service creative agency, partnering with select clients worldwide. They specialize in developing integrated campaigns that combine film, digital, print, and social, built on a winning strategy, and executed to the highest standard of excellence.

It was a pleasure to work with OX Creative and Justin Bell Productions on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a Los Angeles hair and makeup artist.

Best Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Venice Beach Shoot With Jordan

Best Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Venice Beach Shoot With Jordan

As the best makeup artist in Los Angeles, Mathieu Jacobs photographer hired me and model Jordan Clay for a lifestyle,  fashion photo shoot in Los Angeles, California. Mathieu reached out to me through my website and he was planning to organize multiple photo shoots across Los Angeles.

Being a professional makeup artist and hairstylist is one of the most varied, adventurous and crazy careers in the world. People are always asking me what my job is like. Is it glamorous? Do I meet amazing people? Is it stressful and draining? The answer … yes! Yes, to all of the above. My schedule is insanely busy, stressful and demanding – but, worth every minute.

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. He started a trip all around the world with his camera. It’s a huge privilege to be able to meet different cultures so he tries to capture all these awesome moments as much as possible through photography.

The Ford Modeling Agency, or as it is known today Ford Models, is an American international modeling agency based in New York City. It was established in 1946 by Eileen Ford and her husband Gerard W. Ford.

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

TV Commercial Styling | Natural Vitality Commercial

In TV commercial styling, I mostly work on TV commercials and branded videos. I got a chance a couple of months ago to work with RockBridge Productions production company for a Natural Vitality commercial spot. RockBridge Productions was contacted by Craftsman+ to produce several social media videos for Natural Vitality.

I styled 3 talents through multiple wardrobe changes during this commercial production. The wardrobe direction given from the client and director was lifestyle and casual so I brought many options from H&M and ZARA stores. I was the key hair and makeup artist as well on this project.

Craftsman+ is a modern-day creative agency, building beautiful content to help with branding and make our advertisers’ ads more effective.

RockBridge Productions is a video production agency based in San Francisco. They concentrate on building strong relationships with talented directors and bringing their visions to life through commercials, music videos, and feature films.

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

As a Miami wardrobe stylist, I got hired by VistaAerials to work on a Lotus Cars photo + video shoot. VistaAerials was contacted by Lotus Cars to hire as a commercial production company in Miami to produce their commercial in Miami, Florida.

Miami is one of the fashion hubs of the USA, I styled 2 models from Next Management. I wanted to “make a statement” with style and at the same time matching the models look to the cars. How you dress, talk is “who you are” to most people, truly your own brand. Few people will ever come to know the “real you”, so your personal style, your car choice is an effective way to quickly show the world your polish, determination, goals, and ambition. This is the reason why it was really important for me to find the right pieces of wardrobe to match this sports car commercial shoot. Usually, I shop 3-4 times more wardrobe then we actually need because I want to present a ton of options to the client.

About Lotus Cars: Lotus Cars Limited is a British automotive company that manufactures sports cars and racing cars with headquarters in Hethel, England. Lotus cars include the Esprit, Elan, Europa, Elise, Exige, Evora, and Evija sports cars and it had motor racing success with Team Lotus in Formula One.

It was such a pleasure to work with Lotus Cars and Vista Aerials on this project and I wish to work with them again on another car commercial production as a Miami wardrobe stylist.
