FOTD: A Cara Delevingne Makeup Look Inspired by Lisa Eldridge

It’s no surprise that I am a huge fan of Lisa Eldridge. If you haven’t heard of her, she’s a very popular British celebrity makeup artist who also creates exceptional makeup videos on her YouTube channel. I love her recreations of makeup looks she does on celebrities and models for the red carpet, magazines, photo shoots and so on.

I’ve been meaning to do a look recreation of her look recreations (especially the one of Tippi Hedren, which is one of my favourite looks she’s done) but life got in the way, I was busy … oh all right. I forgot. :P Today, I thought I’d get off my lazy bum and try out the latest makeup look she did, which was recreated from her makeup for Cara Delevingne.

Here’s the video in case you haven’t seen it.

Now I’m not particularly a fan of Cara Delevingne, but I really liked the look Lisa recreated on her assistant’s sister, Paris, so I thought I’d try it out too. The makeup look has quite a heavy focus on the eyes and a whole lot of contouring on the cheeks. I absolutely love the results. I’m afraid my camera couldn’t capture a lot of the contouring (trust me, I went to TOWN with contouring this time) nor how intense the eye makeup looks but it looks amazing in real life. Yes, I know I’m tooting my own horn here but I hope you’ll indulge me. It’s not often I manage to come up with eye makeup that actually looks pretty darn good without mucking up the eyeliner or smudging my mascara somewhere. :P

By the way, it’s just a look inspired from the video. I’m not trying to look like Cara D or Paris. Why look exactly like them when I can look exactly like me? ;)

PS: Ahem. I think I should let you know that I did smudge my liquid eyeliner and that I painted the Colour Tattoo over the black spots. Shhh!

    You look gorgeous Tine :-) Love how you played with the eye colours. How do you apply Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye shadows?

    1. Tine

      Thanks Victoria. I apply the Colour Tattoos with my finger. Pat it on, don’t rub. The colour is more intense that way and it sticks on longer :)

  11. Issa

    Beautiful! This look is perfect for a night out :)

    1. Tine

      Thanks Issa. It’s actually very beautiful for the day too!

  12. Shamim de Varax

    awesome job. I wanted to try this look too (love the whole smudgy just slept in eyeliner thing) but I’m too selfconcious about my eyes and am pretty sure it’s just going to look like a racoon!

    1. Tine

      Thanks Shamim! I was worried about the raccoon eye thing too but what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. Turned out better than I expected!
      You should definitely try it out too! :)

  13. Sabine

    LOVELY!! You have the air of a 1920s movie star :) So pretty xx

    1. Tine

      Oh go on, you! *blush* :P
