Some favourites from my makeup tutorials this year
As I was writing my newsletter last Friday I was scanning through the videos I've uploaded over the past 12 months. While I would obviously like to do more (although this year that would have been impossible with the book, Lancôme and all my other projects), I am really proud of the ones I've made. Arriving for a day at the #HouseofEldridge to film for my channel feels very much like a day off for me as I get to spend time with my team and chat to you all - it feels like a makeup club where we gather to relax and talk makeup and life.
A Classic Case of Winter Face with Alexa Chung
We’ve all had a classic case of winter face, Alexa Chung included. In my latest film we chat about base, brows, bold Lips and banishing the winter blues … and managed to hurl a few insults at each other in the process. X
About last week...
If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I'm just back from a sunny week in LA, where I had lots of exciting meetings (watch this space...) and events. I was also thrilled to be named Best Makeup Artist at the WWD and Variety magazine StyleMaker Awards, which celebrate talent working in the fashion, beauty and style industries (you can read the accompanying feature on WWD's website here). I was delighted to be able to attend the ceremony in West Hollywood and the beautiful, star-studded affair didn't disappoint. There were so many fabulous women like Kerry Washington, Katie Holmes and Viola Davis there, who brought a great energy to the room. I was seated next to the fantastic Freida Pinto and we chatted a lot during lunch, what a gorgeous creature she is!

My #facepaintbook beauty story in this month's Glamour Magazine
When Glamour UK's beauty director, the fabulous Alessandra Steinherr, heard I was about to publish my first book on the history of makeup, she not only wanted to feature it but also asked me if I could come up with a concept for a beauty shoot to celebrate the launch. I thought it might be fun to showcase signature makeup styles of four of the 'makeup muses' I feature in FacePaint, but bringing each one right up to date.
