Wardrobe stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles | SUMMONED Short film

Wardrobe stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles | SUMMONED Short film

As a wardrobe stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Disney and 20th Digital. I was the lead makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on this project. The SUMMONED short film was produced by Justin Bell Productions and we shot in a house located in Los Angeles, California. I styled 2 talents through multiple wardrobe changes during this production.

Bite-Size Halloween 2020 features 30 exciting new filmmakers, amplifying their voice in the film community. This year’s cohort includes a well-rounded group of filmmakers representing different countries, identities, and backgrounds. The long term goal of 20th Digital Studio’s short film programs is to continue to guide and finance the growth of these artists’ careers.

On the LA Times: With its high production value and comic undertones, the short film could easily stand-in for a Super Bowl commercial. In fact, the two-minute video created by an L.A.-based filmmaker will begin running next week between Halloween-related programs on the Disney-owned cable channels FX and Freeform and will stream on Hulu. Read the full article here: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2020-10-08/why-disney-betting-spooky-short-films-sponsored-brands?fbclid=IwAR0Z89ldWf6BUfECvxUsR1J6F_tdjQTKJOAEJq0cJLIOYT1Vx3gyd9SDdaE

“There’s a unique way of telling stories in that medium where they can be funny or heart-wrenching or scary, all in this very short period of time,” said Michelle Steffes, who directed the M&M’s short. “I would want to watch a two-minute short film rather than watching four 30-second commercials. So hopefully, other people will feel the same way.”

I had a wonderful time working with Justin Bell Productions, 20th Digital, and Disney’s team as a wardrobe stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Antonym Cosmetics Partnership

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Antonym Cosmetics Partnership

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I collaborated with Antonym Cosmetics, an organic makeup range that is made with certified natural and organic ingredients. The brand range is free of chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, and phthalates.

Antonym Cosmetics was founded by Miami makeup artist Valerie Giraud who sought to create the best organic makeup and makeup brushes that were cruelty-free and gentle on the skin. According to Val, natural makeup doesn’t have to mean a natural look. This is why Antonym Cosmetics is certified natural and organic and highly pigmented.

Natural or “clean” beauty has blown up in recent years. As a Los Angeles beauty makeup artist, I care more about non-toxic ingredients and I’m making a conscious effort to pay close attention to harmful chemicals commonly found in makeup products, like parabens. When I choose the right foundation, blush, lip color of my models, actors, and clients I make sure to look for the most natural-looking match.

The cruelty-free organic Antonym Cosmetics’ coverage is sheer but build-able up to medium, and the velvet matte finish is one of the best skin-like finishes I’ve ever seen.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my hair and makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of Antonym Cosmetics, I can have my kit products fully stocked. Their products are truly amazing, I love to use them on my shoots.

I had a great time collaborating with Antonym Cosmetics, as a hair and makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them for the future.

Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Kari Gran Skin Care Collaboration

Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Kari Gran Skin Care Collaboration

As a makeup artist in Los Angeles, California, I collaborated with Kari Gran, an eco-luxe and simple skincare solution beauty brand.

About Kari Gran: All of their hand-poured products are made using only the finest naturally derived, organic, wild-harvested, and non-GMO ingredients. Their oil-based system harnesses plant and essential oils to gently and safely nourish the skin. The products do not have any added water to ensure you’re only getting the ingredients that matter in a potent and effective state.

At Kari Gran, they choose to formulate without parabens as they stay away from ingredients that are linked to harmful diseases or are known to disrupt our body’s natural processes. Sustainable beauty has never been more timely. Kari Gran is very impressive for its luxurious skincare benefits as it is for its environmentally-friendly ethos.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of Kari Gran, I can have my skincare products fully stocked. Their products are amazing, I love to use them on my shoots.

With respect to the cosmetics industry in 2020, “green” and “sustainable” cosmetics are defined as cosmetic products using natural ingredients produced from renewable raw materials. Luckily nowadays, many companies use petrochemical ingredients derived from petrol, a non-renewable and economically volatile resource.
On set it is very important to me to use the highest quality products on my clients because wearing makeup every day can dry out your skin quickly if you are not moisturizing / taking care of your skin properly.

I had a wonderful time collaborating with Kari Gran, as a makeup artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.

Key Make-Up Artist in Los Angeles | ANTARCTICA Short Film

Key Make-Up Artist in Los Angeles | ANTARCTICA Short Film

As a key make-up artist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Xi He, director of his Antarctica short film. I was the lead makeup artist and hair stylist on this project. We were shooting for 5 days in Los Angeles.

Our cinematographer was Laura Jansen. Laura was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in a small suburban town 25 miles south of the city. Much of her free time as an only-child was spent either in front of a television screen or in a movie theater. It was there that she fell in love with film’s ability to completely immerse her in the narrative and take her to a different place entirely.

I love my job as a makeup artist and I love working with a wide range of different looks and styles that my clients request. I get excited about working with directors such as Xi He and cinematographer Laura Jansen. I am always curious as to what I can contribute to these projects. Most of all, I delight in seeing my work used by clients in their social media posts, films, campaigns, and websites. In this short film for our actors, I created natural and camera-ready hair/makeup looks.

I had a great time collaborating with Xi He and his team as a key make-up artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.

Professional Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Drunk Elephant Collaboration

Professional Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Drunk Elephant Collaboration

As a professional makeup artist in Los Angeles, I collaborated with Drunk Elephant, clean-compatible skincare products made with efficacious levels of ingredients like L-Ascorbic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Marula Oil.

The brand name Drunk Elephant is rooted in a myth that says the elephants love to eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees. Once eaten, fermentation occurs inside their very large tummies and the elephants become drunk! Virgin Marula oil, straight from the “pip”, can be found throughout the Drunk Elephant line. It is an oil that Masterson believes is superior to ANY she’s tried due to the high content of fatty acids and antioxidants.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of the Drunk Elephant, I can have my skincare products fully stocked. Their products are amazing, I love to use them on my shoots. Included in your kit should be the basics: brushes, disposables, sanitation, skincare, and tons of makeup that should be versatile and used for different skin types and tones. Your own kit is unique to you because you have the types of products and tools that you’re comfortable with.

In the entertainment industry, Film and TV might be one of the hardest makeup to create since you’re trying your hardest to make the subject look natural but using products that are HD friendly and full coverage.

I had a wonderful time collaborating with Drunk Elephant as a professional makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future.

A Little Disney History: From humble beginnings as a cartoon studio in the 1920s to its preeminent name in the entertainment industry today, Disney proudly continues its legacy of creating world-class stories and experiences for every member of the family.

About the movie: Frozen II, also known as Frozen 2, is a 2019 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Our artist prepared all the Disney Frozen 2 pop-up paper art pieces prior to the shoot. If three-dimensional objects are formed in front of the viewer’s eyes that previously fitted flat between two book covers one speaks of a pop-up.

Working as a hair/makeup combo on branded videos allows me the freedom of creating a full glam look for the artists, models, and actors. Onset in Los Angeles, we always run into unexpected situations so it is very important to be on top of your task.

Makeup Artist in Atlanta | Filming in Atlanta, Georgia

Makeup Artist in Atlanta | Filming in Atlanta, Georgia

As a makeup artist in Atlanta, there are many ways to learn how to become a makeup artist in Atlanta. Georgia’s film incentives provide thousands of jobs to aspiring actors, filmmakers, costume designers, and make-up artists. I travel a lot for work so I often fly to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Miami as well for different projects.

Getting into the industry is not easy. Originally I’m from Hungary, Budapest. One thing I always say is everyone’s journey is different. As for me, I started out by doing makeup for private events and friends in Shanghai, China. I lived/worked in China for 5 years which thought me to stand on my feet in every situation. The way I got into doing makeup for productions was actually by starting out as a wardrobe stylist. I got to know the production team, agencies, and clients and then eventually started assisting other makeup artists and the journey continued from there.

in 2017 I moved to the United States and my adventure continued here. I am very grateful for this decision every day because I found my place in the world where I can do what I love the most which are styling and makeup. I enjoy creating and the US is giving me creative freedom so I’m very thankful for that.

Being a makeup artist in Atlanta, working in different locations, projects also allows me to be flexible, research, purchase, and try different beauty lines, techniques. It is a very productive playground for a makeup artist and hairstylist like myself with such creative opportunities to work on various films, TV commercials, and fashion shoots.
