Makeup Look For TV Commercial Casting | GRWM & Vlog


Greetings, dears!! In my latest video is a makeup look for tv commercial castings.  If you are a model or actor, this is definitely the video for you!  This commercial look is also a great look for anyone to rock on jeans & t-shirt days!  The art of commercial makeup for camera and print work can be very tricky.  It can also take the most time to achieve versus “louder” makeup look applications.  As a model and actor for over ten years, it has taken me a longgggg time to learn that soft, “barely there” makeup look that pops on camera.  When preparing for that day of castings, we don’t have makeup artists with us to make us feel confident before walking into that room full of eyes.  This can sometimes be stressful and lead to the over-application of makeup, which is counter-intuitive to a natural commercial look. So when you can master a barely there commercial look that looks like you, that stands out naturally, photographs/films really well, and makes you feel confident in that casting room….you will be unstoppable in those castings!  And unstoppable in a comfy sweatshirt and jeans!  Much love!! ~Kelle


E3 Gamers Galore: My Week As A Nintendo Spokesmodel!

Hello, my lovelies! It was a blessing working for Nintendo at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo last week! It is my second year working as a Nintendo spokesmodel, and it is always so much fun. What could be better than playing video games on the new 3DS!? Gooooooo Chibi Robo Ziplash! I was literally tethered and padlocked to two Nintendo 3DS’ for the week at Treehouse LIVE; this gamer’s dream! All in all, and from my designing perspective, I would have to say that Yoshi’s Woolly World is the coolest game ever!

Yoshi made of yarn makes me want to get back into crocheting 🙂  I should also mention that Tetris and Super Mario 3 will always be my all-time fave games, and Nintendo nostalgia forever in my heart!
