Hair And Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Luxury Villa Branded Video

As a hair and makeup artist Los Angeles I was working on a branded video shoot for a luxury villa last year. The video was produced by the BLNK production company in Shanghai, China. We were starting our shoot in the bathroom where I was creating a very natural makeup look. Later at the day, our model was wearing a cocktail dress which is when I changed her look to smokey cat eyes and red lips.

Smoky eye or cat eye makeup looks are stunning on their own, however combining the 2 looks will create one pair of seriously smokin’ eyes. Recently we’ve been seeing more and more of this kind of eye makeup exposure on commercials, on the red carpet, fashion week, celebrity events, and on gals around the city. Smoky eyes and dark red lips can work perfectly together, our model looked stunning with this mix, combining the boldness of the classic red lip with the flirty vibe of smokey cat eyes.

The trick to getting red lips right is a great lip liner – this helps your lipstick last longer and allows you to achieve an excellent shape. The key to making red lips look sophisticated, and not messy, is careful application. ‘Red lipstick is a source of strength,’ says Poppy King, creator of Lipstick Queen. ‘You put it on and suddenly you feel more capable than you did without it.’ Debbie Harry asserted herself in the boys’. As a hair and makeup artist in Los Angeles directors, photographers, creatives often ask for this makeup look during shoots.

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

TV Commercial Makeup Artist in Los Angeles | Scotch Porter TVC

As a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles, I was hired by HCI advertising last year for their Scotch Porter TV Commercial shoot. We had a night shoot in a butcher store in Hollywood. I had about 25 male actors/models to do makeup for. It was a very straightforward shoot because we were going for camera-ready looks.

Being camera-ready means the products and techniques used to achieve the overall look are compatible with high quality cameras that photographers and videographers use. That means you will be HD compatible and as technology advances, makeup products and techniques advance as well. When I work as a TV commercial makeup artist in Los Angeles I always prepare my makeup kit with the essential products.

Camera-ready makeup isn’t concerning heavy coverage or too bright colors. It’s about understanding what the camera is going to see. It’s about proper tone, accentuation. Clean, moisturized skin is that the ideal palette to work on. The camera can pick up on dry or excessively oily skin very easily. Television cameras and bright lights will alter your appearance drastically and there’s no way around it makeup is essential. A primer will ensure that your foundation doesn’t sink into your skin.

Scotch Porter is more than just a brand; it’s a call to action. When Calvin Quallis left the comfort of his cushy desk job last year to pursue his dream of creating the ultimate men’s grooming line, he did so with the intent of making the most stylishly accessible products in the game. Scotch Porter is for the modern day man who wants to look his best at all times. Your first impression is your last impression, and while you rock your distressed denim, cashmere sweater and leather bag or even your suit and tie, we’ve got you covered on the rest. From head to toe.

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

As a professional makeup artist in LA I was working with fashion model / influencer Kenzo Lauren on an editorial beauty shoot in Los Angeles. The fashion shoot entitled Hollywood Shine, has been published by Dear Velvet on their online blog. We found Kenzo while I was looking for fashion models in the Los Angeles area. We arranged this photo shoot in several locations in Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica, launching our first fashion photo collaboration.

Most importantly we were going for a high end look on this shoot, inspired by the Oscars. From gold makeup to sparkling nails, the looks exuded Hollywood glamour. I managed Kenzo’s makeup and styling for this editorial. Eye makeup speaks volumes about your style and when done right, it has the power to be immensely transformative. So it did for Kenzo. I chose matching cocktail dresses to complete her look for this shoot.

As a professional makeup artist in LA, I always arrive to fashion shoots with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. Highlighter is the ultimate photo-ready secret. On this editorial I used gold and silver glitter as well for eye shadow. A little glitter liner is a super fun way to add some sparkle to your look. 

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 as a professional makeup artist in LA.

From the founder of DV : “Art and fashion, writing, photography and sheer curiosity keep me up late, playing in the digital world and on the road in the real one.”

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | LXMI

As a Los Angeles fashion makeup artist, my most important rule is taking care of your skin. This is one of the reasons why we collaborated with LXMI. As a Los Angeles makeup artist I focus on skincare first. I absolutely love to use LXMI because this luxury skincare brand especially pops with organic and natural products. Anyone with sensitive skin will benefit from the natural ingredients this company uses in all of it’s product lines. For this reason, many of my clients ask for this brand by name.

Our collaboration with LXMI started when I reached out to the brand through their website and requested their support of my work as a Los Angeles fashion and commercial makeup artist. Through that connection they sent me their most current products that I love to use. during the commercial shoots I love to use their Nilotica Goddess Glow Hydrating Illuminator, Pure Nilotica Hand & Body Melt Organic and Unrefined Nilotica Reserve creams.

Each of these products has their strong points including keeping the skin hydrated and glowing. Proper skin care is really important because our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have.

Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Having clean and clear skin can help boost your confidence and keep you looking your best! Your face is the first part of you others see when they meet you, so go forward with your best face forward. A daily skin care routine can help you do exactly this.
