You may have noticed that I set up a ‘Your Lisa Eldridge Looks’ board on my Pinterest last week. It’s a place where I can collect all of your fabulous recreations of my looks. I've been wanting to do this for a long time as I receive so many beautiful images via twitter and instagram. A huge thanks to everyone who has submitted photos so far, there are already over 100 and you all look amazing! I definitely feel like a proud make-up mamma! Above are some examples of the major skill and talent on show from gorgeous women around the world.
I’m just beginning to get properly involved in Pinterest (yes I know I'm late to the party but hey, Ive been busy!) so will be starting to upload all my covers and red carpet work along with the inspirations behind shoots and looks.
If you’re in the UK, Pinterest has just officially launched here so if you haven’t signed up yet click here. Its a fun way of collecting ideas for everything from interiors to make-up looks. clothes and just about everything. I'll be updating and creating new boards regularly, so do stop by and say hello.
If you want to appear on my ‘Your Lisa Eldridge Looks’ board just Tweet, or Instagram your look with the hashtag #mylisalook , or add it to my Facebook page and mention the name of the video you created the look from. Then, I'll add your photos to the board. Even if you did the look and sent me a picture a while ago, please re-send it or add the hastag to the original picture ... I want to include everyone's.
P.S Happy Mothers Day to everyone who is celebrating it today, I hope you all have a great day. Lets raise our glasses to women everywhere X
Spring Pink - Fuchsia-licious Lip with a Glow
This simple fresh-faced make-up look features the lipstick I was wearing in 2 of my #foundationcourse course videos as so many of you loved the shade and asked what it was. Subtly glowing skin combined with a bright, candy pop lip makes this look perfect for now X
A similar, more affordable lipstick to the YSL one I use in the video is the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Lollipop (075) which has a similar texture but is less blue.
Gallery Update - The Rite of Spring
I'm totally obsessed this shoot I did with model Stella Tennant for the New York Times T Magazine,
We shot it the day of the Chanel Metiers d'Art Show in Scotland. It was a magical location (which really comes across in the photos I think), with incredibly beautiful clothes. There was definitely an etheral quality to the shoot so I kept the make-up quite pale, angelic and delicate with strong brows.
I've worked with Stella many times over the past seventeen years and she seriously hasnt changed one jot! X
'Baby Bardot' Fresh Spring Make-up Look
This tutorials features a version of the make-up I did on Kate Winslet for the cover of Bazaar. A fresh, cute spring look with simple touches and soft peachy tones.
You can see the Bazaar cover shoot this make-up is inspired by here.
You can also see my beginner's guide to applying individual fake lashes here.
Gallery Update - 3 styles of 'natural'
I worked on these two quite different spreads and covers with supermodel Anja Rubik. The first cover features a very natural looking Anja in a field of daisies wearing a super, pared down mid 90's grunge style make-up, the second has a much stronger feel with a contoured 'heavy natural' make-up (remincent of the early 90's... think Tyen).
#Foundationcourse Round Up
Here are all the #foundationcourse videos together in one place to make it easier for you to dip into the course whenever you fancy.
