Artist Watch: Latest Vogue Beauty - Lisa Eldridgde

Check out British Vogue's latest Beauty Editorial sporting beautiful matte pastels created by Makeup Artist Lisa Eldridge.

Lisa has become one of the most highly regarded make-up artists on the international beauty and fashion circuits today. With no less than 20 years of experience Lisa has kept a high editorial profile working with many of the world's top fashion photographers including David Sims, Corrine Day, Regan Cameron, Solve Sundsbo, Patrick Demarchelier, Paolo Roversi and Horst Dirkgerdes. Her well-honed skills have appeared on the pages of virtually every fashion magazine including British, Italian and Japanese Vogue, Allure, The Face, Numero, Pop and Another.

When asked about her latest British Vogue Beauty Editorial (May Issue 2010) she explains on her blog:

"the idea was to create the 'new pastel face' using this seasons latest chalky pastel products. Matte chalky pastels like these are quite tricky to get right and can be very difficult to pull off outside the studio. I wanted the feel to be as candy/pretty as possible whilst at the same time having a real strength and fashion focus. I feel these sorts of shades and textures look more modern when they are combined in a clashing colour way....warm sunny lemon juxtaposed against cool lilac.

I kept the texture of the skin very velvety matte for the blue/lemon/pink shot and then played around with a lot more shine and highlight in the lilac/lemon shot. Both gave a completely different frame and feel to the pastels."

Products used in the Vogue shoot:


Illamasqua Creep eyeshadow (the lilac),

Mac Pro Canary yellow eyeshadow,

Nars Sugarbaby eyeshadow (the pale blue),

Korres pale blue eyeliner (not sure of name),


Mac 'Pink Vivid' paint stick mixed with kryolan white Supracolour for the pink lip

Bright orange and yellow Mac Pro Lipmix mixed up with kryolan white supracolor for the orange lip
