Mobile Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Old Hollywood Beauty

Mobile Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Old Hollywood Beauty

As a mobile makeup artist Los Angeles, Emmanuel Guillermo photographer hired me and model Jenna Curtis for an old Hollywood beauty inspired photoshoot in Los Angeles, California.

Jenna Curtis is an Austrian actress, singer, and model. She grew up in the capital music city of Vienna, where she was trained in Acting and Musical Theatre. In 2013 Jenna moved to Los Angeles, California which has been her home base ever since.  Before Jenna became a singing actress, she was traveling Europe as a model, while working on original Indie-Pop music.

I created an old Hollywood glamour hair and makeup look for Jenna Curtis.Old Hollywood makeup consisting of a killer cat eye, lightly blushed cheeks and, of course, a bright red lip. It’s the perfect go-to look for anyone who wants to look polished but perhaps isn’t too keen on trying a more daring beauty trend of the moment, I absolutely love creating this look for my clients.

Old Hollywood glamour hair and makeup is dramatic but not over-done. This style is to make you look your best and it involves full foundation coverage, accentuated contours, blush, and so on. To create an old Hollywood style evening look, you need to style your wardrobe as well, the best is to choose a floor-length gown of satin or velvet.

It was a pleasure to work with Emmanuel Guillermo and Jenna Curtis on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a mobile makeup artist.

As a hair and makeup artist, I created for Marlowe a natural beauty look. Barely-there, au naturel makeup will never go out of fashion.

Natural Looking Makeup Tips:
  • Moisturize and always start with a primer. It fills in fine lines and fades imperfections. Creating a perfect base for your makeup is very important, the camera lens can often magnify
  • Conceal
  • Powder or light foundation
  • Subtle blush
  • Neutral shadows
  • Nude lip
  • Little mascara
  • No liner

It was a pleasure to work with Mathieu Jacobs and @geneticmodels on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a hair and makeup artist.

Wardrobe Stylist in Los Angeles | IKARIA Resort Wear Behind the Scenes

As a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I got hired by Tiger House Films production company to work on an international resort wear photo + video campaign. We worked on this shoot for 1 day in Palm Springs, California. I love to work with fashion brands that have high-end taste in their work and ad materials.

We worked with the beautiful Brazilian model Barbara Fialho, who is best known for being associated with Victoria’s Secret for many years. She is a Brazilian fashion model. She was born in the city of Montes Claros, Minas Gerais and started her modeling career at the age of 15. Barbara has graced renowned fashion weeks. She has worked with some of the most prestigious designers, photographers and publications in fashion.

The owner of Ikaria Resort Wear had a clear vision of what she wanted to express with this collection so I had to follow the guidelines and as a wardrobe stylist in Los Angeles, I had to make sure that we capture every single piece of dresses in this spring-summer collection. Since we were shooting in conjunction with photo and video we kept our schedule very tight to capture everything. This collection was inspired by the old Hollywood glamour with a Cuban flair that can be felt throughout the ethereal luxe 100% Silk 20-piece collection, designed to effortlessly transition from beach to dinner to the red carpet.

I had a great time working with Ikaria Resort Wear and Tiger House Films team as a wardrobe stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Creative Artists Agency Event

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Creative Artists Agency Event

As a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles, I got asked by one of my best friends to do her CAA event the Golden Globe Awards hair and makeup look. I created a classic black smokey eye makeup look. This iconic makeup style looks good on everyone and is universally flattering.

Being a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles, I advise these 3 things to know before starting your smokey eye:
  • The key is to always keep the darkest point at the lash line. It keeps the makeup really modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye vs. the makeup.
  • Stick to no more than 3 shadows and a liner to pop your eyes. Keep it simple!
  • Brushes are super important to get that blend. Blend is your friend. When it comes to a smokey eye, it doesn’t matter how dark you go, or what colours you use, it’s how well you can blend the liner and shadow.

The Golden Globe Awards are accolades bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association beginning in January 1944, recognizing excellence in film, both American and International, and American television.

Creative Artists Agency LLC or CAA is an American talent and sports agency based in Los Angeles, California. It is regarded as a dominant and influential company in the talent agency business and manages numerous clients. In March 2016, CAA had 1,800 employees.

Leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) represents many of the most successful and innovative professionals working in film, television, music, video games, theatre, and digital content, and provides a range of strategic marketing and consulting services to corporate clients.

It was a pleasure creating Lubi’s hair and makeup look as a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Fashion Stylist | Happy Plugs Campaign

Los Angeles Fashion Stylist | Happy Plugs Campaign

As a Los Angeles fashion stylist I got hired by Happy Plugs company to work on an international headphone photo + video campaign. We worked on this shoot for 2 days in Los Angeles, California. I love to work with brands that have great taste in their work and ad materials.

Let me tell you a little bit about the shoot. We worked with 4 agency models from Los Angeles, our art direction was straight forward, we wanted to capture the model’s natural beauty. As a Los Angeles fashion stylist I really enjoyed our collaboration because this shoot gave me the freedom of creating exciting wardrobe looks. I prepped the wardrobe looks in prior to the shoot and my assistant, Gene helped me on the shoot days to organize everything. I brought many wardrobe options from ZARA, Urban Outfitters, All Saints, and H&M stores. I shop A lot, especially if I work on a branded content/ad. I usually shop three to four times the amount I actually need. I’m expected to have endless options for the clients.

Happy Plugs was born at the end of 2011 when the founder Andreas Vural was looking for a pair of colorful headphones for his girlfriend. When he didn’t have any luck, he finally took the matter in his own hands – and painted a pair of headphones himself. And she and her friends loved them! He then realized there was room for well-designed and affordable quality headphones that went beyond functionality within the tech space. From this belief, the brand Happy Plugs was born.

I had a great time working with the Happy Plugs team as a fashion stylist and hope to create a lasting business relationship with them for the future.

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.

Currently, he’s in post-production on a 1970’s style superhero heist movie – The Hyperions, starring Cary Elwes.
