Kendall's Adventures in Wonderland - Behind-the-Scenes & Giveaway
I'm always excited when I get to work on shoots that are a real 'production', like this one I did for the December issue of American Vogue. The shoot was in collaboration with theNational Theatre in London to celebrate the opening of their new musical, wonder.land - a hypermodernised and visually extravagant take on Lewis Carroll's classic story, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (which - believe it or not - is 150 years old this year).
New Year's Eve Makeup Inspiration
If you're heading out for New Year's Eve and want some makeup inspiration, here's a round-up of a few of my all-time favourite party tutorials.
NYE is the perfect time to pump up the makeup glamour. I personally love classically beautiful, drop dead gorgeous, Hollywood and vintage-inspired party makeup - flawless, radiant skin with well placed highlighting is instantly beautifying, and you can’t go wrong with a killer red lip...

To celebrate my book #Facepaintbook I’m making tutorials based on the looks of some of my favourite Makeup Muses. This time it's the glamorous and fabulous Elizabeth Taylor - the epitome of a Hollywood Movie Star and a true beauty icon. The look is a classic and iconic mid 50’s makeup, I hope you like it. X
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!
