PAYING TRIBUTE TO LISA ELDRIDGE
Crowned the “Beauty Guru” by British ELLE, Lisa Eldrige is one of the heavy hitters, the crème-de-la-crème of the beauty industry. Loved for her vogue aesthetic and vintage-inspired approaches, Lisa is truly the Kate Moss of the makeup world. Her legendary expertise has been featured on countless catwalks and editorial shoots, creating glamorous yet subtle faces which make her work a rare inspiration for aspiring artists in the field. Lisa’s work is also used as a preferred staple for celebs and magazine editors alike.
During Lisa’s career, she has worked countless high-profile jobs in the most notorious fashion capitals: Paris, New York and LA, collaborating with some of the most well known fashion photographers in the world. Moreover, her mastery in make-up has graced the pages of nearly every prominent fashion magazine such as British, Italian, Chinese and Japanese Vogue, Numero, Glamour, Allure, Lula, Elle and Pop. Lisa has also helped develop advertising campaigns and fashion shows with the most elite fashion houses including Alberta Ferretti, Donna Karan, Moschino, PPQ, Chloe and Prada.
Lisa’s signature look can be best described as healthy and organic. She is undeniably a master of the “naked-faced” look with a remarkable talent for creating sensual and classic faces, which are still natural, and almost Victorian in their aesthetic. She often will combine fleshy pink lips with soft groomed brows and flushed dewy cheeks. Occasionally, Lisa will spice up these clean looks with a refined cat-eye liner or a smoldering charcoal eye for a sexy, yet modish result.
Lisa’s expertise has landed her tons of exciting positions in the makeup industry. In 2003, she was hired as the Creative Director for the British cosmetics brand, No.7. She worked to re-brand the face of their company and re-launch their products as the new ‘it’ makeup. Lisa also writes content for Chanel, helping translate the latest makeup looks into methods that are understandable to everyday ladies. Even with all these illustrious accomplishments, it is Lisa’s personal website which really makes her a celebrated name in the industry. With her detailed online makeup tutorials and down-to-earth blog posts, Lisa’s website remains a die-hard favorite for beauty bloggers, magazine editors and haute fashionistas.
