I used to look to my favorite magazine for lessons in make-up applications but now that most celebrity makeup artist have posted their how-to’s on the web, I turn to YouTube instead and search whatever make-up look I’m trying to master. From everyday, ‘no make-up’ make-up, to high-drama editorial make-up, learning how to recreate any look you want is so much easier when you’re able to watch every little detail of the transformation instead of reading a summary of each step. I never realized how much blending was really involved in a dramatic smokey eye- or how many brushes and types of brushes you really need to achieve a certain look. All those little details are nonexistent in magazine write-ups which left most looks I wanted to recreate falling flat. I’ve become a huge fan and YouTube subscriber to several different make-up artists (some professional- some just lovers of make-up) and I’d like to spotlight each of them separately since they are all so different and fun to watch. I stumbled across each of them while searching for a specific how-to look and found myself drawn in to their large collection of videos which cover topics beyond make-up such as product reviews, personal favorites, tips, tricks and skin care.
#1 Lisa Eldridge
Highly regarded international make-up artist on the beauty and fashion circuits today. Her signature look is “fresh, flawless skin and an understated modern approach to beauty.” She’s worked with fashion houses such as Chloe, Prada and Donna Karen and has made up Cameron Diaz, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum just to name a few. Where can you see her work? She recently did Emma Watson’s Elle UK Cover look. Here’s a sample of some of my favorite video’s from her:
