Lancôme Announces Lisa Eldridge as their new Makeup Creative Director

Maison Lancôme is delighted to announce
Lisa Eldridge as the new Makeup Creative Director

An incredibly talented artist who uses her outstanding technical virtuosity to express her highly modern sensibility, Lisa Eldridge has rapidly become an essential name in beauty sought out by the world’s greatest photographers, from Sølve Sundsbø to Mert & Marcus, and regularly working with the most prestigious magazines and major luxury fashion brands.
This trailblazing expert is recognized among her peers while also one of the first international makeup artists to become a popular figure, adulated by millions of women across the world who truly trust her. The reason why? In 2009 she created a unique blog. Inspired one New Year’s Day, she began work on a genre-breaking support tool, flying in the face of a didactic or prescriptive approach. In the site’s inaugural video, she appears bare-faced, sharing her secrets to erase the reminders of a festive ‘night before,’ with pragmatism, generosity and humor.
A guide to the art of camouflage and artifice? Far from it. Lisa’s blog is all about wellbeing, offering practical tips on how to look gorgeous in a few short minutes and start the New Year feeling happy and good about yourself. With Lisa Eldridge, it’s all about you—not trends taken from catwalk shows or the season’s it shade, but answers to highly concrete questions that women ask. Never categorical or universal, adapted to beauty’s full diversity. Technique is always key, but accessible enough to make your own. Lastly, pleasure: the delight felt by today’s over a million subscribers every time she publishes a new YouTube video. The pleasure of learning, but also of watching and listening. Watching the precise, meticulously choreographed movements of Lisa Eldridge’s hands and listening to the warm and soothing tone of her voice: watching a Lisa Eldridge tutorial is a moment of pleasure, as addictive as it is instructive!
Working with the French beauty Maison, Lisa will create products and collections that embody her effortlessly chic philosophy—one she shares with Lancôme. She will also craftapplication gesture techniques and tutorials designed to make women’s lives easier and turn makeup into a source of liberation rather than a constraint—another vision that she shares with the brand. Whether natural or glamorous, her use of makeup is always designed to make women look and feel beautiful. Lisa is not interested in outdated beauty precepts, though often follows three golden rules: choose between eyes OR lips, buy products that illuminates your face only after trying it out in natural light and, first and foremost, a beautiful complexion is key.
“Lisa and Lancôme, immediately appeared evident for us, explains Françoise Lehmann, General Manager of Lancôme InternationalWe share the same values, the same desire to provide to women the keys to a more intimate and deep sense of beauty, rather than one that is solely on the surface. A style of beauty that removes itself from a purely materialistic vision of femininity to one that is aspirational and influential.”
“It’s an honor to be named Makeup Creative Director at Lancôme, a brand with an incredible heritage, impeccable style and genuine integrity. We are designing a brand new Paris Makeup Atelier and I can’t wait to start creating new collections, shades and products, as well as posting the amazing on-line content we have in mind. This truly is an exciting new adventure!” Lisa Eldridge

Hourglass Modernist Eye Shadow Palette Infinity, A Barneys New York Exclusive

Barneys New York is offering the exclusive Hourglass Cosmetics Modernist Infinity eye shadow palette on pre-order. It's my understanding that a wider color range in addition to Infinity, will be available after the first of the year, and those will likely not be exclusive. I believe this is also available on counter at select Barneys stores beginning today.

This palette retails for $58.00, and if you order online, it states that it's expected yet this month, so hopefully my wait won't be too long!

The Body Shop Advent Calendar Now Available in the U.S.!

It's a Christmas miracle! The Body Shop's Advent Calendar is finally available stateside. Every year I watch countless YouTube videos and read UK beauty blogs praising the wonders of The Body Shop's Advent Calendar, but I've never seen it available in the United States. Ulta now has this available online only at this point, and it retails for $75.00.

Ulta has a picture of the contents, but I don't want to spoil it for you if you're like me. I prefer to actually open each "door" one day at a time. For $75.00, I want that element of surprise! You can view more details and see the contents here.

Are you a fan of the beauty product advent calendars like I am? Benefit Cosmetics is also offering one for $99.00, and I saw one earlier today on QVC for $78.96.
