Los Angeles Commercial Makeup Artist | Collaboration with Supergoop!

Los Angeles Commercial Makeup Artist | Collaboration with Supergoop!

As a Los Angeles commercial makeup artist, I collaborated with Supergoop!, a prestigious skincare brand 100% dedicated to suncare, making it easy to incorporate UV protection into your daily routine.

About Supergoop!: The Best of Beauty-winning Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40, a clear, primer-like sunscreen with an oil-free, completely invisible, scentless, and lightweight formulation. It dries down clear, making it suitable for all skin types and complexions. The product is paraben, sulfate, and phthalate-free as well as cruelty-free.

Everybody that has done a shoot on location knows that it’s a whole different beast compared to filming in the controlled environment of sound stages. For example, you have to battle the weather elements such as the sun.

MY SUNCARE TIPS ON SHOOTS:

1) Apply natural sun cream, Supergoop! products are perfect for the hot summer days.

2) Don’t forget about the lips. Whilst we all know you have to apply sun cream to your face and body, what many people often forget is to protect our lips too.

3) Cover up your in style and hide from the sun peak times if possible.

Thankfully with many years of experience, I have my makeup kit fully equipped for every project. With the support of Supergoop!, I can have my skincare and sun care products fully stocked. Their products are great, I love to use them!

I had a wonderful time collaborating with Supergoop!, as a commercial makeup artist, I hope to create a long-lasting relationship with him for the future. Working with excellent suncare brand such as Supergoop! is truly improved my abilities to provide the best for my clients.

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.
