Best Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Venice Beach Shoot With Jordan

As the best makeup artist in Los Angeles, Mathieu Jacobs photographer hired me and model Jordan Clay for a lifestyle,  fashion photo shoot in Los Angeles, California. Mathieu reached out to me through my website and he was planning to organize multiple photo shoots across Los Angeles.

Being a professional makeup artist and hairstylist is one of the most varied, adventurous and crazy careers in the world. People are always asking me what my job is like. Is it glamorous? Do I meet amazing people? Is it stressful and draining? The answer … yes! Yes, to all of the above. My schedule is insanely busy, stressful and demanding – but, worth every minute.

Mathieu Jacobs is an internationally published fashion and lifestyle photographer after he spent twenty years in Paris he felt that his place was no longer there so he decided to keep the essential and look for the best places on our planet. He started a trip all around the world with his camera. It’s a huge privilege to be able to meet different cultures so he tries to capture all these awesome moments as much as possible through photography.

The Ford Modeling Agency, or as it is known today Ford Models, is an American international modeling agency based in New York City. It was established in 1946 by Eileen Ford and her husband Gerard W. Ford.

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

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

Miami Wardrobe Stylist | Lotus Cars Photo + Video Shoot

As a Miami wardrobe stylist, I got hired by VistaAerials to work on a Lotus Cars photo + video shoot. VistaAerials was contacted by Lotus Cars to hire as a commercial production company in Miami to produce their commercial in Miami, Florida.

Miami is one of the fashion hubs of the USA, I styled 2 models from Next Management. I wanted to “make a statement” with style and at the same time matching the models look to the cars. How you dress, talk is “who you are” to most people, truly your own brand. Few people will ever come to know the “real you”, so your personal style, your car choice is an effective way to quickly show the world your polish, determination, goals, and ambition. This is the reason why it was really important for me to find the right pieces of wardrobe to match this sports car commercial shoot. Usually, I shop 3-4 times more wardrobe then we actually need because I want to present a ton of options to the client.

About Lotus Cars: Lotus Cars Limited is a British automotive company that manufactures sports cars and racing cars with headquarters in Hethel, England. Lotus cars include the Esprit, Elan, Europa, Elise, Exige, Evora, and Evija sports cars and it had motor racing success with Team Lotus in Formula One.

It was such a pleasure to work with Lotus Cars and Vista Aerials on this project and I wish to work with them again on another car commercial production as a Miami wardrobe stylist.

Las Vegas Wardrobe Stylist | Adidas Fashion Show

Las Vegas Wardrobe Stylist | Adidas Fashion Show

Traveling is one of the best parts of my job as a Las Vegas wardrobe stylist, which was where I worked on a fashion show for Adidas. For this, as with every job, my goal was to match the brand identity and create the appropriate looks for the client.

Adidas AG is a multinational corporation, founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Germany, that designs and manufactures shoes, clothing, and accessories. It is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second-largest in the world.

As a Las Vegas wardrobe stylist, I was assigned to work on fourteen models, and my goal was to create the perfect looks for each of them so they would look great in the N.H.L. hockey jerseys on the fashion show. When working with a sports brand, the style is pretty straight forward. I love it when I am able to pull off great looks, even when the available items are limited because it allows me to be creative with the colors and shapes of the outfits.

One of the things I love about my job is that it teaches me how to be flexible. Traveling for a job is a prime example of this. I love planning what to bring and checking what I need ahead of the shoot so that I can come to the location ready to take on the task.

Another thing I love about this job is that I get to work closely with brands, most of which I would personally use and recommend. Usually, the producers are very detailed when it comes to the instructions and briefs in regards to the show, and they really appreciate it when you take the time to study the client’s brand identity and ensure that the looks I create suit the brand’s image.

VoyageLA asked me a couple of questions via email such as how I started my career, what kind of issues I was facing along the way and about my current/future projects. They gave me about 2 weeks to get back to them which was plenty of time to put together my answers. At the end of my interview they asked me to recommend 5 people who also work in the film / advertising industry because they would like to expend their community to their readers.

I love collaborating with magazines that create interesting stories and connect people together. VoyageLA introduces creatives in different areas of LA, for example they have people in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica etc. so you can search and read about industry professionals in your area.
