East Meets West - Makeup Trend Transformation Tutorial
Come say hi on Instagram.
Tutorial with a twist! As a previous Creative Director of Japanese makeup brand Shiseido, and current Global Creative Director of Lancôme, I get a lot of insider knowledge and data about makeup trends and consumer behaviour from around the world. I thought this film would be a little bit of fun to compare some of the popular makeup trends from across the globe. I hope you like it! X
Embrace the Zing! My Favourite Orange Lipsticks
When I posted last week's #FlawlessFriday, with my pro tips and tricks for long-lasting lipstick (if you didn't catch it, read it here), a few of you asked me about the orange lipstick in the image above. I had to have a look back as I couldn't recall what I'd used (a combination of Tokyo and New York jet lag!), then remembered it was MAC Lipstick in Morange, a gorgeous, full-blast orange, really creamy and pigmented, that makes a brilliantly bold colour statement - although you can blot it down to more of a tint/stain if you prefer a less intense finish.
#Giveaway - Your Chance to Own an Exclusive, Money-Can't-Buy House of Eldridge Candle
When I’m not on shoots or working in Paris for Lancôme, I love nothing better than hanging out at my studio, the #houseofeldridge. I’ve filled the space with beautiful chairs, reference books, printed rugs and a mixture of modern and great 20th century vintage furniture, as well as cool finds and souvenirs that I’ve picked up on my travels. I’ve also got drawers full of vintage makeup and a beautiful old cabinet that houses my Biba collection, which I started about 20 years ago (I’ve now got the world’s biggest collection!).
Boys on Film - Nick Rhodes #makeupmoments
The 80s were undeniably one of the most creative eras in 20th century for fashion, design, club culture, hair and, of course, make-up. There was nothing subtle about it, it was the decade of excess, power, passion and politics and when it came to make-up, the phrase 'Anything Goes' was never more appropriate.
One of the things that inspires me most about the 80s is the DIY element - it was all about creating your own outrageous costumes and flamboyant makeup. This was certainly true of iconic new wave band Duran Duran, who had a huge influence on fashion.
#FlawlessFriday Long-Lasting Lip Tips (and 3 of my Current Favourites)
I'm always asked about my long-lasting makeup tips, particularly lipstick. Although there are lots of great, long-wearing formulas around claiming 12 or 14 hour wear, for me when it comes to making makeup last, application techniques make the biggest difference.
Here are my #FlawlessFriday pro tips - just in time for the weekend ; )

Nail Polish... without the Odour!
I know some people who really love the smell of nail varnish - but personally I'm not the biggest fan! So when these Little Ondine polishes arrived at the #houseofeldridge with odour-free claims I was intrigued - I couldn't quite believe they would be 100% resin scent free.
