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.

As a commercial hair stylist in Los Angeles, I collaborated with IGK, an innovative, styling product brand for the modern generation.

About IGK: They’re a team of four innovative stylists from various parts of the globe and vastly different backgrounds unified in a single vision: to create products designed to fit the lives and needs of the client and hairstylist.

I always love to try new products, IGK sent me various amazing texture/volumizing sprays, dry shampoo, hair masks, and conditioners.

They work in NYC+LA+MIA, plus pop-up salons in culture capitals throughout the world. Every formula they create is inspired by the stylist, his signature city, and the nuances of what’s trending in that space and time.

As a Los Angeles key hairstylist, I’m in charge of the entire hair department, and I report directly to the production team and clients. Usually, I execute the hair styling for one or two principal actors or models.

Freelance Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Partnership with Dr. Dennis Gross

Freelance Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Partnership with Dr. Dennis Gross

As a freelance makeup artist in Los Angeles, California, I collaborated with Dr. Dennis Gross, a personally formulated cruelty-free skincare brand which is using science & nature for clear, glowing skin, targeting lines, wrinkles, firmness, and dry skin.

Dennis Gross, M.D., is a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who has been in practice for 25 years. Creator of award-winning Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™, inspired by the skincare concerns of patients at his NYC practice. PETA appreciated and recognized Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s commitment to remaining cruelty-free.

The brand has sent me their amazing Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel product. The peels contain both alpha and beta hydroxy acids which gently exfoliate the skin and, according to Dr. Dennis Gross, “weaken the connection between dead skin cells.” This helps to accelerate the shedding process and remove bacteria and buildup, keeping dead skin cells from getting trapped in your pores. I enjoy using this peel product on my shoots since it is cleaning up beautifully my models/actor’s skin before I apply the makeup.

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

Los Angeles Freelance Makeup Artist | L.A. Easy Dear Velvet Editorial

Los Angeles Freelance Makeup Artist | L.A. Easy Dear Velvet Editorial

As a Los Angeles freelance makeup artist, I’ve had the opportunity to work with fashion model/influencer Brianna Olenslager on an editorial shoot in Los Angeles. The fashion shoot entitled L.A. Easy has been published by Dear Velvet on their online blog.

Being a makeup artist is always exciting for me to create different looks that catch the eye of the internet audience. With makeup alone, you can do so much to get the look and feel you are going for. I always arrive at fashion shoots with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. Glowing/natural skin is the ultimate photo-ready secret. In this editorial, I used black eyeliner to bring out the model eyes. A little highlighter on the eyes is a super fun way to add some shine to your look. 

Dear Velvet of our shoot: All doe-eyed, with honeyed tresses, Brianna epitomizes the modern spirit of LA: sweet white dresses toughened up with denim, and hoodie and jeans made candy-striped feminine, in front of one of LA’s abundant graffiti backdrops. So Venice Beach, so LA easy.

Dear Velvet is a diary of style, creativity, and wanderlust. We first connected in 2015 with the DV team and since then, they have published several amazing articles about my work.

Film Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | “The Influencers” Santa Monica Webfest

Film Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | “The Influencers” Santa Monica Webfest

As a film makeup artist in Los Angeles, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Katie Burris, director of “The Influencers”, a Comedy Pilot. I was the key makeup artist and hairstylist on this project. We were shooting for 2 days in Los Angeles.

“The Influencers” have been accepted to the Santa Monica Webfest in Los Angeles, California, and are nominated in 3 categories — including Best Ensemble Cast, Best Low Budget Series, and Best Comedy Series. In its inaugural year, Santa Monica Webfest will be showcasing the very best in short-form digital content from around the world. The festival will be taking place in June of 2020 in one of the most picturesque beach communities on the planet.

Being an L.A. film makeup artist, I am responsible for applying makeup to actors and actresses during filming. Makeup artists play an important role in helping the writers and directors tell a story by working closely with the director and production team to bring a story to life. Cameras can accentuate wrinkles, affect skin tone, and magnify skin flaws like scars and acne so I need to make sure my models, actors are camera-ready throughout the day. I touch them up between takes and correcting the distortions caused by the camera lens and lights.

I had a great time collaborating with “The Influencers” team as a film 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.
