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.

Los Angeles Celebrity Stylist | Trendeavour Interview

Los Angeles Celebrity Stylist | Trendeavour Interview

As a Los Angeles celebrity stylist, I got interviewed by Trendeavour Online Magazine. Trendeavour was founded in 2017 as an independent media/education company and digital marketing agency. Their mission is to empower creatives and provide motivational content, actionable resources, tools and tips for aspiring creative entrepreneurs to start and build their business. They interview industry experts to give inspiring, invaluable and proven advice they learned throughout their careers.

Let me tell you a little bit about the interview. Trendeavour asked me a couple of questions via email such as, what made me become a fashion stylist, what challenges I faced living in China and how I moved to Los Angeles and started my career there? You can find my answers below:

“I always wanted to move to Los Angeles so it felt right to start this journey. I always knew that there is a huge creative industry in L.A. but I didn’t know how I would do at first.

I lived in Shanghai for 5 years and was lucky to travel around Asia but I didn’t see myself living there for another 5-10 years.

I had to decide quickly how the future of my career would take shape. With my mind on the US, everything shifted naturally in the direction of Los Angeles as my next destination.

It was great living in Asia for as long as I did and I’m very happy I am able to continue my carrier in the US by taking the lessons I learned in Asia and applying them to the industry here in Hollywood.

Before and after I moved, I connected with a lot of producers, advertising agencies and companies in order to start to work and that networking paid off. ”

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | Deloitte Digital Marketing Campaign

Los Angeles Wardrobe Stylist | Deloitte Digital Marketing Campaign

As a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Deloitte Digital on their 8×8 Communications promotional materials. I was the lead makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on this shoot. This campaign was shot in the Deloitte office in Los Angeles, California.

We shot this commercial spot for 3 days and I styled 5 talents each day through multiple wardrobe changes during this production. The wardrobe direction given from the director and client was business casual/corporate and lifestyle so I brought many options from Topshop and ZARA stores.

A couple of styling tips and tricks:

  1. Have your models wear trends in an appropriate way
  2. Mix prints and patterns carefully because of the camera can read prints differently
  3. Don’t be too matchy-matchy
  4. Show skin selectively
  5. Bring staple pieces
  6. Develop a signature style for each model
  7. Have a classic white shirt ready

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, commonly referred to as Deloitte, is a multinational professional services network. Deloitte is one of the “Big Four” accounting organizations and the largest professional services network in the world by revenue and number of professionals with headquarters in London, United Kingdom.

For this corporate photoshoot, I need to make we have tailored suit jackets, bottoms, shoes, blouses, and ties available for our talents. For blouses underneath the jacket, think shiny. The silky fabric looks great on the camera. I brought simple earrings, bracelets, and necklaces with me as well.

I had a wonderful time working with Deloitte’s team as a Los Angeles wardrobe stylist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them for the future.

Television Wardrobe Stylist | Cathay Bank Commercial

Television Wardrobe Stylist| Cathay Bank Commercial

As a television wardrobe stylist, I got a chance a couple of months ago to work with Tiger House Films production company for a Cathay Bank commercial spot. Tiger House Films was contacted by Plan C Agency located in Downtown Los Angeles to produce several social media videos for Cathay Bank.

I styled about 10 talents through multiple wardrobe changes during this commercial production. The wardrobe direction given from the client and director was business and business casual so I brought many options from ZARA and H&M stores.

The target audience for this project was the Chinese American demographic here in the United States. By getting social media video content marketed to this particular group about the benefits of banking with Cathay, the wide reach of internet marketing has allowed for Cathay Bank to see immediate results and benefits regarding exposure of their brand.

Because Cathay Bank first opened in 1962 in Los Angeles’ Chinatown as the first Chinese-American bank in Southern California, our goal was to teach the history of this brand to new customers, bringing in the next generation of Chinese-American consumers. In 1979 Cathay Bank opened its first branch office in Monterey Park. Its first overseas representative office in Hong Kong was opened in 1985.

I had a great time working with Cathay Bank and Tiger House Films team as a television wardrobe stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future. As a stylist, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and fashion shoots.

TV Commercial Stylist | New York Life Insurance Commercial

TV Commercial Stylist | New York Life Insurance Commercial

I was hired as a TV commercial stylist multiple times by Tiger House Films production company for a New York Life Insurance Commercial. This TV commercial production had a very fast turnaround and we are happy to say that our workflow with Plan C Agency executed the projects of very high quality. I had to make sure all the talent had their wardrobe options so I was able to deliver the best to our client on the shoot days. As a wardrobe stylist based in Los Angeles, I was able to communicate with all the talent their wardrobe options very well.

We shot this commercial for 2 days, one day in an ice skating rink and in the client’s Los Angeles office. The second day was a beautiful house located in Beverly Hills. Not only did wardrobe styling on this job but I was also the hair and makeup artist. The commercial turned out great, it is very dynamic. Our schedule for this creative commercial was a bit difficult as we had to do an overnight due to the Pasadena Ice Skating Center’s schedule. Tiger House Films crew made the difficult situation into a very smooth and precise shoot that went off without any problem.

The plot of this branded media revolves around an affluent Asian American family who wants the best for their daughter. She tries activities such as piano and violin (very popular culturally relevant activities in Asian American communities across the country) but can’t quite find her niche. She finally tries something more athletic, ice skating, and realizes her passion for the sport.

Plan C is a multicultural marketing and communications agency with offices in Los Angeles and New York. Their mission is to guide brands on their path to growth through strategic planning, advertising, traditional & digital media, events, and PR.

I had a great time working with New York Life Insurance and Tiger House Films team as a TV commercial stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future. As a stylist, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns with THF production team.

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.
