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.

Hair and Makeup Artist | Pelle Moda Campaign

Hair and Makeup Artist | Pelle Moda Campaign

As a Los Angeles hair and makeup artist, I got hired by fashion brand Pelle Moda, they were looking for a hair & makeup artist for their L.A. fashion shoot. It was my second time working with Pelle Moda’s team.

About Pelle Moda: Pelle Moda footwear is designed in the mecca for trending new fashions and strives to answer the needs of the contemporary and stylish woman.

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. There is nothing she loves more than finding an amazing outdoor location to frolic and capture the unique love of a couple, or spend the most important day of their life with them and all their loved ones.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | International Sunglasses Campaign

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | International Sunglasses Campaign

As a Los Angeles makeup artist I got hired by Tiger House Films commercial production company to work on an international sunglasses photo + video campaign. We worked on this shoot during 2 days around Venice beach in Los Angeles, CA.

An international sunglasses brand reached out to Tiger House Films in Los Angeles from Sweden to create a commercial for their new line of bone-conduction bluetooth audio eyewear. Their goal was to create lots of excitement around the new product with a Venice Beach-themed commercial with a colorful Instagram aesthetic.

Tiger House Films advertising agency in Los Angeles hired instagram models and skaters to act and model in this high energy production centered around the Venice Beach culture. Shot in conjunction with brand testimonials on the Venice boardwalk and a campaign style photoshoot, THF commercial production included skating, basketball, a pool party and focused vfx on the groundbreaking technology of the product.

The sunglasses brand is a new brand utilizing bone conduction audio technology to listen to your favorite music and take phone calls via Siri via wireless bluetooth. With bone conduction headphones perceptions of the outside world are not blocked. Bone conduction allows the wearer to hear with open ears to the surroundings. Sound is transmitted through the skull into inner ear rather than through the air, therefore the need for traditional earbuds had been eradicated. With this new technology, my job as an Los Angeles makeup artist was to focus on keeping the models vibe cool.

Commercial advertising stylist | VoyageLA Interview

Commercial advertising stylist | VoyageLA Interview

As a commercial advertising stylist I got a chance a couple of weeks ago to give an interview to an online magazine called VoyageLA. The interview can be found as part of the Inspiring Stories series here:

http://voyagela.com/interview/meet-luca-buzas-lucabuzas-hollywood/?fbclid=IwAR0MIU9_keVXLCmTJwqo8j-LvPie0Ujxxcl7C-0tTwScBQ-JKBEbD_XSsdQ

Let me tell you a little bit about the interview. VoyageLA asked me a couple of questions via email such as how I started my career, what kind of issues I was facing along the way and about my current/future projects. They gave me about 2 weeks to get back to them which was plenty of time to put together my answers. At the end of my interview they asked me to recommend 5 people who also work in the film / advertising industry because they would like to expend their community to their readers.

I love collaborating with magazines that create interesting stories and connect people together. VoyageLA introduces creatives in different areas of LA, for example they have people in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica etc. so you can search and read about industry professionals in your area.

About VoyageLA: The Voyage Group of Magazines started in Los Angeles with their flagship publication VoyageLA.  After generating their first million page views in LA they knew their content was resonating with the community. They’ve since grown to a handful of other amazing cities with the help of an incredible network of friends, associates, local insiders and influencers, PR firms, local bloggers, artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and other professionals.

It was a pleasure collaborating with VoyageLA on this interview as a commercial advertising stylist and hope to create a lasting relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles Beauty Influencer | TYME Iron Pro Collaboration

Los Angeles Beauty Influencer | TYME Iron Pro Collaboration

As a Los Angeles beauty influencer I often collaborate with different brands. TYME sent to me a package including their Iron Pro, Upstaged Thermal Protectant and their Tymeless Protect & Shine. As a beauty influencer in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns so I always need to have my kit professionally put together for my clients. TYME products really help me to stay professional and ready for any situation.

I love my TYME iron, you can create any hairstyle you like with it!  You should expect your TYME Iron curls to last for days. Below are a couple of tips to help get more life out of your style:

  • Make sure you are curling at a slow speed, with loose tension. If you gliding too quickly down the hair strand your hair won’t properly heat, which can cause your curls to fall.
  • Evaluate your foundational products.
  • Check your temperature setting. If your hair is thick or naturally curly you may need to go up a heat setting to set in your curls.

TYME designs products that give every individual the confidence to recognize their own unique beauty. They are a small company, and a family, who are committed to making life easier with superior products, next level customer service and education.

Being a Los Angeles influencer means having a social media base 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 the TYME. I get excited about working with new beauty products and about what I can achieve with their products from project to project.
