Jessica Alba with Jeanine Lobell

Last Monday I had the pleasure of assisting Jeanine Lobell for a Cover of Marie Claire featuring Jessica Alba. The makeup was very dramatic and Jessica looked beautiful! She’s so confident and so kind, and she rocked the makeup look that Jeanine gave her. Unfortunately I cant share any images or details of the makeup from the shoot because it’s top secret…. but here’s a behind the scenes look st the make shift sign on her dressing room at the St. Regis Hotel in NYC.

Jeanine had to catch a flight to paris at 6:00, so I wrapped up the shoot! I finished the last two shots with Jessica, touching her up and making sure the makeup was flawless at all times. Then when the shoot was finished, I changed her makeup for an interview for marieclaire.com. I made her makeup more natural for the interview. I used: rosebud lip salve on her lips, lightened up her eyes with concealer on her brow bone, took down the contouring and added a little more blush (Nude Pink by Bobbi Brown). I think Jeanine would have been very happy with the way I did her makeup. I know Jessica was, she was very happy and so sweet, she even hugged and kissed me goodbye. Love her!

Meet the Makeup Artist: Kaarin Lanyi

Q. How do you know Makeup Artist Lindsey Jones?

A. I met Lindsey on the Michael Bastian FW ’12 show. She complimented me on the organization of my makeup station. :)

Q. What lip gloss/ color is in your purse right now?

A. I’m currently using L’oreal Colour Riche Balm in Nourishing Nude. I don’t like wearing lip gloss or lipstick so I’m always on the hunt for a texture somewhere in between. This balm is semi-shiny, tinted, and has SPF15. The color is just a fraction of a shade deeper than my natural lip color; it’s the perfect no-lip lip for me.

Q. How long have you been a makeup artist and what type of work do you do?

A. I was approached by a producer in NYC to do makeup when I was about 20. She immediately had me working on TV productions even though I was totally clueless! (I wish I had a photo of my kit from back then to share! Hilarious I assure you.) It was a whirlwind experience that I wasn’t quite ready for so after a year and a half of trying to figure out how to be a freelance makeup artist without mentors or makeup pals I left that path for a few years to pursue work in the same field as my degree (Architecture Studies and Urban Design). While working at the architecture firm I realized that I really did want to do makeup and I was finally ready to tackle it on my own terms. I’ve been a freelance makeup artist full time for 5 years now since I came back to artistry. I would say that my work is split pretty evenly between TV, fashion, and private clients. Love my job!
