Hollywood Makeup Artist | Vtech Commercial

Hollywood Makeup Artist | Vtech Commercial

Being a Hollywood makeup artist, I mostly work on TV commercials and branded videos. I got a chance a couple of months ago to work with Justin Bell production company for two Vtech TV commercial spots. Justin Bell production was contacted by Vtech to produce several social media videos. Justin Bell is a feature film, TV, commercial, and new media producer based in Los Angeles.

I was the key hair and makeup artist on this project. Working with children is so much fun, I love that in every single filming day they are bringing something new and exciting.

Our director was Corry Wiens, Corry Wiens is an award winning director based out of Los Angeles, CA. His unique style lives in the intersection of story and grit, resulting in gripping films that leave a lasting impact.

Corry started his career as a commercial editor in Chicago and derives his rhythm for pacing and storytelling from his background in postproduction. Following his time as a commercial editor, Corry helped to grow and lead a team of filmmakers at a boutique agency focused on non-profit and documentary work. During this time, Corry developed the ability to stretch thin budgets to create high-quality films with a gritty aesthetic.

VTech is a global supplier of electronic learning products from infancy to preschool and the world’s largest manufacturer of cordless phones based in Hong Kong. It is also one of the top 50 electronic manufacturing services providers globally.

I had a great time working with Justin Bell productions and Vtech‘s team as a Hollywood makeup artist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Celebrity Makeup Artist | Amazon Alexa Holiday Campaign

Celebrity Makeup Artist | Amazon Alexa Holiday Campaign

As a celebrity makeup artist, I had the luck of working with Amazon and Stept Studios on their Alexa holiday commercial shoot in Los Angeles, CA.

I groomed 8 talents in total for this commercial shoot. We were going for camera-ready, natural looks. We were filming 4 commercials during 2 shooting days in a house location.

Applying primer is the first and most important step when I start to work on a camera ready makeup look. It will help reflect light and create the illusion of invisible pores. The next step is a semi-matte finish foundation. That is the best if you are going to take a lot of photos. It does not make your skin look too dry or oily in the pictures.

The commercial was produced by Stept Studios. About the company: Stept is an award-winning creative and production studio known for work that feels more like entertainment than advertising. They partner with brands, agencies, and platforms to create campaigns, commercials, and branded content with authenticity at its core. Their award-winning roster of directors represents the next generation of storytellers, working across commercial and documentary genres.

Amazon Alexa, also known simply as Alexa, is a virtual assistant technology largely based on a Polish speech synthesiser named Ivona, bought by Amazon in 2013. It was first used in the Amazon Echo smart speaker and the Echo Dot, Echo Studio and Amazon Tap speakers developed by Amazon Lab126.

I had an amazing time collaborating with Stept Studios and Amazon as a celebrity makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them in the future.

About Ben Bridge: Ben Bridge Jeweler is a high-end American jewelry retailer that sells engagement rings, diamonds and watches, including Rolex, among other luxury product and is currently owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.

Here are the not-so-official rules of pairing necklaces with an outfit to look your best:

  • Minimal necklaces and fine silver or gold chains can pair with most shirts. Wear these with a t-shirt, or a v-cut if you want to show off your clavicle.
  • Solid shirts and plain tops can always use a necklace to add definition and create interest.
  • High necklines (like a turtleneck, collared shirt, or mock neck) benefit from statement or layered necklaces.
  • If you’re wearing a flowy or loose shirt, use a necklace to give your body definition, and prevent the shirt from overwhelming your body.

About Tiger House Films: Founded in 2011 by producer / director Jason Kent Carpenter, Tiger House Films is a dynamic, multi-award winning full-service commercial and brand media production company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, known for it’s vibrant, modern aesthetic.

Celebrity Stylist and Makeup Artist | Tibloom Magazine Interview

Celebrity Stylist and Makeup Artist | Tibloom Magazine Interview

As a celebrity stylist and makeup artist, I get interviewed by Tibloom a Los Angeles, CA-based fashion magazine.

About Tibloom: Bella Trost is the founder of Tibloom Magzine. She is a former gymnast and member of the Hungarian National Team of Sports Aerobics (1999-2001) and a multiple-time world champion fitness athlete and bikini model. She is a qualified sport, dance, and yoga coach, as well as a nutritionist. She spent half of her life training, working out, and doing both dancing and sports professionally.

One of my favorite questions from the interview:

“What does it take to become a good stylist?

In my opinion, you have to look at each overall project. You have to be detail-oriented but can’t get lost too much in the details, what will matter is how everything comes together so you have to focus on the important, broad-scope elements.

You have to have creativity, the ability to imagine, and great communication skills. Another important ability is to quickly spot styles, and trends and to see what works for the client design-wise at the moment. It is a complex job but you learn and grow with every job. ”

About me and my job: As a wardrobe stylist, I’m responsible for making the outfit look its best for the production. Whether I’m working on a film, a television commercial, a reality show, a photoshoot, a tv show, or on prime-time television, as a film wardrobe stylist, I must get the look and feel of the clothing needed for the production that I’m working on.

I had an amazing time collaborating with Tibloom Magazine on this interview as a professional celebrity stylist and makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them in the future.

Commercial Makeup Artist | Wendy’s national TV commercial

Commercial Makeup Artist | Wendy’s national TV commercial

As a commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles, I had the luck of working with Wendy’s on a national TV commercial advertising spot.

The Wendy’s Company is an American holding company for the major fast food chain Wendy’s. Its headquarters are in Dublin, Ohio.

The commercial was produced by Stept Studios. About the company: Stept is an award-winning creative and production studio known for work that feels more like entertainment than advertising. They partner with brands, agencies, and platforms to create campaigns, commercials, and branded content with authenticity at its core. Their award-winning roster of directors represents the next generation of storytellers, working across commercial and documentary genres.

Their family of services gives brands and agencies the opportunity to create cinematic content at scale and with incredible agility. They offer a highly individualized approach to commercial production, creative services, and entertainment. Every project is different, and they tailor their services to the needs of the project.

The national TV commercial concept was to create a romantic comedy feeling. We were inspired by the Too hot to handle TV show, which concept is that a group of determined singles visit paradise to meet, mingle, and remain celibate for their chance to win a large sum of money.

We were going for a glam hair and makeup look for our actors. Wavy hair, glowing skin, brushed-through brows, diffused eyeshadow, and a natural, neutral lip.

I had an amazing time collaborating with Wendy’s and Stept Studios as a commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with them in the future.
