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.

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. Pelle Moda shoes are the perfect choice for day or night, depending on the look you’re going for. Flourishing for over a decade, their styles are found in specialty boutiques and exclusive retailers around the globe. Crafted to adorn the foot in the most flattering ways, our shoes make an entrance and leave a lasting impression.

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.
