Los Angeles makeup artist | True Botanicals Social Media Videos

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, Tiger House Films hired me for their True Botanicals social media videos. We shot vertically on an Arri Alexa mini with an L bracket to flip the camera sideways.

Natural skincare brand True Botanicals reached out to Tiger House Films commercial production company in Los Angeles through New York Agent Quickframe Inc., to film and edit a series of social media videos for their line of skincare products. As a makeup artist, it was a great experience working with True Botanicals because their products are filled with natural and organic ingredients and their skin and body products promise results without toxins.

About True Botanicals: The skincare company based out of San Francisco, has a unique past. After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, Hillary Peterson (the founder of True Botanicals), channeled her fear and frustration with the beauty industry into research—and a passion for creating pure, potent, and proven products that are good for people and the planet. Her bold vision motivates the entire True Botanicals team: a small but mighty band of (mostly) women based in Northern California.

Tiger House Films filmed the social media videos in Downtown LA in a photo loft with beautiful decor and sunlight. Our model for this project was Olga Safari, who has great energy and was perfect for this client due to her flawless skin. This was my third time working with Olga. 

It was a pleasure to work with Tiger House Films and True Botanicals on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a Los Angeles makeup artist.

Makeup Artist In Los Angeles | Luminess Beauty Collaboration

Makeup Artist In Los Angeles | Luminess Beauty Collaboration

As a makeup artist in Los Angeles, I’ve collaborated with Luminess Beauty. Our collaboration with Luminess Beauty started when I reached out to the brand through their website and requested their support of my work as a makeup artist. Through that connection they sent me their most current products that I love to use.

Luminess Beauty sent me an amazing contour palette and 2 eye shadow palettes. Both of the eye shadow palettes are essentials to your makeup kit. Natural eye makeup never goes out of style. These palettes came with a series of gray, taupe, gold, brown, olive, burnt orange, and nude eye shadow shades, so you can embrace a natural makeup look that’s totally on-trend.

Founded by current CEO, Sean Mehta, Luminess was created as a professional quality Airbrush Cosmetics line that was designed to be easy-to-use for the at-home consumer. Today, they celebrate over five million airbrush units sold and their fifth-generation airbrush system which is the smallest, lightest, and most precise system available on the market. With new innovations in the lip, and eye cosmetic products and formulations along with breakthrough skincare products, Luminess is now a full-service beauty brand.

Being a makeup artist in Los Angeles means that you have to have a social media base/portfolio ( such as Instagram, Facebook ) with a significant and engaged following. Because of my professional background in Hollywood, endorsing specific makeup and beauty brands through shareable, digital content allows brands to get their products to the right people.

I really enjoyed collaborating with Luminess beauty. I get excited about working with new makeup products and about what I can achieve with their products from project to project.

Professional Makeup Artist | BeautyBio Collaboration

Professional Makeup Artist | BeautyBio Collaboration

As a professional makeup artist, I’ve collaborated with BeautyBio. Being a Los Angeles social media influencer, I build a reputation for my knowledge and expertise on a particular topic. I make regular posts about that topic on my preferred social media channels such as Instagram / Facebook and generate large followings of enthusiastic engaged people who pay close attention to my views.

BeautyBio is producing science-based skincare products. You can easily achieve glowing skin with BeautyBio. They sent me a face roller and under-eye masks. Wasn’t sure how I would like this roller, but I absolutely love love love it! As a professional makeup artist, I use it daily to help my products to penetrate the skin and for lymphatic massage. Really helps my jaw area which feels the stress from grinding my teeth. So anytime I need a little stress relief this roller really helps.

Face rollers are good for helping with under-eye circles, wrinkles, acne, and helping skincare products absorb more easily into the skin. The facial rollers assist in that movement, bringing fresh fluid, as well as inviting oxygenated blood to the area, which is like food for the skin. My BeautyBio face roller, it is a 100 percent solid Brazilian rose quartz dual-ended roller to help visibly contour, de-puff, and seal in skincare for face and body.

The Rose Quartz Roller may be used alone in the morning to de-puff or afternoon after a GloPRO® micro-needling treatment to seal in skincare benefits. Rose quartz rolling improves lymphatic drainage and reduces facial puffiness including the appearance of dark under-eye circles, also helping improve the presence of pores and enhances skin’s natural glow.

Our beautiful model was Kristen Jadlow, she is a freelance model and worked with us for 1 day in Downtown Los Angeles in a photo studio. Our first look was wavy hair. If the word “effortless” was to manifest itself as a hairstyle, it would be wavy hair. The texture—a happy medium between voluminous curls and straight hair. For this hair, I wanted to bring out Kristen’s eyes so I added a liner and created cat-eye makeup. For the second look, I put her hair up in a ponytail and changed her lip color.

Our photographer for this campaign, Stephanie, is a wedding, couple’s and fashion photographer based out of Los Angeles, CA. She has been a professional photographer for 2 years now. Wedding and couple’s photography are her bread and butter.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | The Walt Disney Branded Video

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, The Walt Disney Company hired me for their Disney Art 4 Ways: Maleficent branded video shoot in their studio. We shot this branded video for 2 days.

I was hired to do camera-ready makeup for 4 people. Camera-ready makeup isn’t about heavy coverage or overly bright colors. It’s about understanding how and what the camera is going to see.

Things you must need to create a camera-ready makeup and as a Los Angeles makeup artist I use all the time:

  • Contour: When taking a photo/video the camera makes you look flat with no dimension, so contour your face to create shadows, making you three-dimensial to the camera
  • Avoid Shimmer: A little shimmery highlight on the cheekbone is OK, but try and avoid shimmery eyeshadows as flash photography reflects light back, causing the skin to look washed out. Matte colors work perfectly if you are going to be in front of the camera.
  • Pack on the Translucent Powder: Before adding blush or bronzer, pack on the translucent powder and use shine-free foundation. For the same reason you want to avoid shimmery eyeshadows, you want to use translucent powder to tone down the natural shine of your skin. Toning down the shine is why celebrities are constantly being touched up when on camera.
  • Use Primer: Prime you face and eyes before applying makeup
  • Apply Mascara: Mascara will really make your eyes stand out, and your overall look will be perfection.

The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California. I had a great time working with The Walt Disney Company team as a Los Angeles makeup artist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Beauty Makeup Artist | Fashion shoot with Taylor Piper

Beauty Makeup Artist | Fashion shoot with Taylor Piper

As a beauty makeup artist, I collaborated with Matt Pluz, a Miami based fashion photographer to work on a fashion shoot with him and model, Taylor Piper. We shot these images for 1 day at Matt’s Miami studio. We came up with the concept together and organized the shoot in about 2 weeks.

Matt Pluz is an internationally published fashion photographer based in Miami Beach, whose work has been showcased in hundreds of publications such as ELLE Spain, Sports Illustrated, Maxim, The New York Post, Hollywood Reporter, Billboard Magazine, Ocean Drive, GQ, Esquire and many more. Matt was recently named one of Peerspace.com’s Top 10 Miami Photographers.

Our model, Taylor is currently signed with Margaux The Agency in Los Angeles and with Wilhelmina in Miami. Wilhelmina International Inc., formerly Wilhelmina Models, is a full-service modeling and talent agency headquartered in New York City, United States. The company also has offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and London.

Beauty photography can be one of the most challenging photography styles to get right. Whether you’re creating editorial content for magazines or capturing a particular makeup product for an advertisement, beauty photography requires very close collaboration among the photographer, model, makeup artist and stylist. I loved working with Matt and Taylor, it was a very successful collaboration and the images are outstanding! As a beauty makeup artist, I had to keep eye on the details because every small slip will look huge on the final images. Matt retouched the images and took care of the color grading as well.
