Lancome announced that the newest Makeup Creative Director – Lisa Eldridge, the internationally acclaimed makeup artist who is known to work with A-list stars such as Kate Winslet, Katy Perry, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson, Eva Green, Cameron Diaz, Amanda Seyfried, Kate Moss, Helena Christensen, Cate Blanchet, Demi Moore and Salma Hayek. Having lived and worked in Paris, New York and LA, Lisa is now based in London.
“I can’t wait to start creating new collections, shades and products,” says Lisa. In this new role, Lisa will create products and collections for Lancôme. She will also craft application gesture techniques and tutorials designed to make women’s lives easier and show them how to use makeup effortlessly. Whether natural or glamorous, her use of makeup is always designed to make women look and feel beautiful. Lisa follows three golden rules: choose between eyes OR lips, buy products that illuminate your face only after trying them out in natural light and, first and foremost, a beautiful complexion is key.
Known as an incredibly talented artist who uses her outstanding technical virtuosity to express her highly modern sensibility, Lisa Eldridge is sought out by the world’s leading photographers, from Sølve Sundsbø to Mert & Marcus, and is called on to work with the top magazines and luxury fashion brands. She was previously the Creative Director for the iconic brand Boots No. 7, and brought the brand back to life with her fresh and modern approach.
This trailblazing expert is recognized among her peers while also one of the first international makeup artists to become a popular figure with millions of fans around the world who trust her advice. In 2009 she created her unique blog that is all about wellbeing, offering practical tips on how to look gorgeous in a few minutes. Look for her popular videos on YouTube, read her blog and subscribe to her newsletter to keep up with Lisa’s top beauty picks and tips.
Ironically, 20 years earlier Lisa worked as a beauty advisor at the Harrods Lancôme counter in London. So perhaps this mariage de beaute was meant to be.
