Wardrobe Stylist in Miami | Studio Fashion Photography

Wardrobe Stylist in Miami | Studio Fashion Photography

As a wardrobe stylist in Miami, I collaborated with Matt Pluz, a Miami based fashion photographer to work on a fashion shoot with him and model, Taylor Piper. We shot these images for 1 day at Matt’s Miami studio.

Fashion photography is one of those niches that escapes strict definition and for the most part, it is free from creative restriction. You can shoot whatever you want, in a studio or outside, however you want, as long as you are telling a story. It’s true that clothes, accessories, and makeup form a huge part of the story, but at the end of the day you’re providing a glimpse into an imagined world through your unique perspective.

As a wardrobe stylist in Miami, I conceptualize outfits for the shoot from brands who fit the brief, and I go out and borrow, buy these items for the shoot, dress the models in an organized and creative fashion, and ensure that all items are accounted for at the end of the day and returned. As a stylist, I collaborate with the fashion photographer and help advise on everything from how the story is shot to how the story can be presented once it’s finished.

I was the key HMUA as well on this shoot, hair and makeup make all the difference when it comes to bringing your fashion story to life, as they can place the fashion model into the world you’ve envisaged with much more realism and relative ease than post-production can ever achieve.

It was such a pleasure to work with Matt Pluz and Taylor Piper on this project and I wish to work with them again on another production as a wardrobe stylist in Miami.

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 Los Angeles hair and makeup artist, Mathieu Jacobs photographer hired me and model Marlowe Daly for a lifestyle,  fashion photoshoot in Los Angeles, California. Mathieu reached out to me directly and he was planning to organize multiple photoshoots across Los Angeles.

Marlowe Daly is signed with @geneticmodels. GENETIC MODELS MANAGEMENT is a premier boutique agency located in Los Angeles, CA.

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.

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.

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.

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.
