Los Angeles makeup artist | True Botanicals Social Media Videos

Los Angeles makeup artist | True Botanicals Social Media Videos

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, Tiger House Films hired me for their True Botanicals social media videos. We shot vertically on an Arri Alexa mini with an L bracket to flip the camera sideways.

Natural skincare brand True Botanicals reached out to Tiger House Films commercial production company in Los Angeles through New York Agent Quickframe Inc., to film and edit a series of social media videos for their line of skincare products. As a makeup artist, it was a great experience working with True Botanicals because their products are filled with natural and organic ingredients and their skin and body products promise results without toxins.

About True Botanicals: The skincare company based out of San Francisco, has a unique past. After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer, Hillary Peterson (the founder of True Botanicals), channeled her fear and frustration with the beauty industry into research—and a passion for creating pure, potent, and proven products that are good for people and the planet. Her bold vision motivates the entire True Botanicals team: a small but mighty band of (mostly) women based in Northern California.

Tiger House Films filmed the social media videos in Downtown LA in a photo loft with beautiful decor and sunlight. Our model for this project was Olga Safari, who has great energy and was perfect for this client due to her flawless skin. This was my third time working with Olga. 

It was a pleasure to work with Tiger House Films and True Botanicals on this project and hope to work with them again on another production as a Los Angeles makeup artist.

Commercial Makeup Artist | Drink Bai Promo Video

Commercial Makeup Artist | Drink Bai Promo Video

As a commercial makeup artist , I’ve had the opportunity to work with Drink Bai on their festival promo video. I was the key makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on this shoot. This stop-motion commercial video was shot in 1 day in a studio in Los Angeles, CA at Sibling in Atwater Village.

Our technique to shoot this commercial spot was really unique. Stop-Motion is similar to Time Lapse in that you’re taking a series of single images at a certain interval, like clouds in a Time Lapse, you’re moving the subject itself and animating it. In Stop Motion photography we were doing the same thing, but instead of shooting all those frames in real time, we were shooting one image, then moving the subject, shooting another image, moving the subject again, and so on. The motion comes together when all those images are edited into a continuous movie.

About Drink Bai: Each serving of Bai offers fresh fruit flavor infused with coffeefruit, our “secret superfruit”, which has antioxidants. Sweetened with stevia leaf extract, Bai is the five-calorie way to bring healthy, bold flavor into your life. Bai’s mission is to share the powerful antioxidant goodness of coffee’s superfruit and always move toward optimum, healthy living.

About the director: Shal Ngo is a writer / director / editor / animator / bean enthusiast. He splits his time between New York, Los Angeles, and Ho Chi Minh City.

I had an wonderful time working with Shal Ngo‘s team as a commercial makeup artist, I hope to create a long lasting relationship with them for the future.

Celebrity Makeup Artist | LANY x Julia Michaels OKAY Music Video

As a celebrity makeup artist , I’ve had the opportunity to work with LANY x Julia Michaels on their OKAY music video. I was the lead makeup artist and hair stylist on this project.

LANY is an American indie pop band from Los Angeles, formed in 2014. The band consists of Paul Jason Klein, Charles Leslie “Les” Priest, and Jake Clifford Goss. Julia Carin Cavazos, known professionally as Julia Michaels, is an American singer and songwriter from Davenport, Iowa.

The Los Angeles alt-pop band LANY has teamed up with superstar Julia Michaels for its latest single called OKAY. The tune is surprisingly catchy and light for such a heavy topic, but the rhythmic beat adds to the feeling of, yes, maybe I will be okay amidst the darkness.

This music video production for LANY was shot in Venice Beach and in Moonlight Rollerway with an overnight production schedule. With my makeup artist assistant, Mya, we had to stay mobile during the entire shoot. Over the past several years, I’ve been able to polish my skills as a Los Angeles celebrity makeup artist. I’ve managed to gain a vast range of experience, worked with many different clients, and allowing my ambition and energy to assist in the creative process and provide a satisfying result.

I had an wonderful time working with Univeral Music Group, Julia Michaels and LANY‘s team as a celebrity makeup artist, I hope to create a long lasting relationship with them for the future.

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Lifestyle shoot in DTLA

Los Angeles Makeup Artist | Lifestyle shoot in DTLA

Being a Los Angeles makeup artist I would like to share with you a couple of tricks and basic fixes which will help to deal with shiny or uneven skin tone, tired eyes, and unpronounced features in general. In real life, there’s nothing targeting and bouncing light off of your face, washing out your features. The human eye sees differently than the lens of a camera, which is why you look very different in the mirror versus in a picture.

Let’s start with the basics:

Mattifying, full-coverage base makeup will help your skin to look soft and even, plus it will combat shininess. Using a makeup brush will help to blend the product into a natural-looking finish.

Next up – Foundation: With a foundation brush, blend foundation evenly all over clean, moisturized skin.

Don’t forget the concealer: Apply your foundation first and then conceal the problem areas that still stand out. Use a minimal amount of concealer and blend well.

Last but not least – Translucent Powder: Lightly sweep powder over the center of the forehead, the center of the nose, and chin. Apply it as a final step, so you can tell where you need it, it will remove shine. A glow-y complexion looks great in person, but on camera, it can reflect like an oil slick. The trick is to leave the dewiness on your cheeks, but keep the middle of your face matte.

Check out my next blog articles for other on camera makeup tricks like creating natural eyebrows, eyeshadow,  eyelashes, lipstick and applying bronzer, blush, and highlighter for contouring.
