The makeup artist I once idolized is gone, but there’s a new one in town.
In a rare public appearance, the woman behind some of the world’s most coveted beauty products has a message for aspiring makeup artists: You can be a master of your craft.
And if you’re like me, you want the best of the best.
So what exactly is makeup, exactly?
And is there any such thing as a perfect makeup artist?
I recently spoke with Elizabeth Lattimore, the co-founder of the London-based Beauty Academy, about the art of makeup, her current projects and why it’s important for beauty to be accessible and accessible to everyone.
The opinions expressed in this interview are those of the author.
I spoke to Elizabeth Lontimore, co-founding member of the Beauty Academy.
The Art of the Facial Hair What is makeup?
In the late ’90s, makeup was still a novelty.
And as I was learning to be my own beauty editor, I found myself thinking that if I could create my own palette of products, that I would be able to create my makeup as well.
I was very lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people, and to be able create my very own look.
Elizabeth Lont, Beauty Academy Founder How does makeup start?
If you’ve been following the Beauty Blog, you know how it starts.
Elizabeth and I first met on Instagram, in the early days of Instagram.
I met Elizabeth at the beginning of a beauty shoot.
She was very sweet and enthusiastic, and we quickly clicked.
Over the years, we started creating our own palette, and she encouraged me to experiment.
I experimented with everything from powders and creams to eyeliner and eyeliner shadows.
I used a lot of different eyeshadows and powders.
And I started experimenting with eye makeup too.
Elizabeth also encouraged me not to be afraid to go out and buy more products, and it was something I really tried to implement in my makeup.
As time went on, I would find more products that were much better for me, and more options to go for.
And by the end of the year, I was in love with everything I bought.
I bought a lot more products.
How did you find your style of makeup?
When I was younger, I loved a little bit of makeup in the morning, so I always had a couple of different shades.
I wore my makeup with my hair and wore my lipstick on the side of my face.
I liked that I could blend it all together, and be creative with it.
After I became a bit older, I started to get a bit tired of wearing makeup.
I’d go out into the city and I’d wear my makeup, and then I’d walk away for a bit, because I didn’t want to be in a situation where I’d have to get home to change.
I wanted to wear it on the go, and I wanted it to be comfortable.
I didn’st want to wear a lot too much makeup, but if it was a good day, then I would wear a little.
What were some of your favourite products?
I always liked a bit of a mix of things.
When I’m at the gym, I love a lip balm and a powder.
When it’s cold outside, I always like a cream and a gel.
I also love a little of a lot.
When I’m on my phone, I like a lot, but I also like something that’s super matte and really natural.
I like to use a lot that doesn’t feel like makeup, that feels like natural.
I love the shade of brown, but also I like something more pink.
I love things that have a little shimmer to them.
For the lip balms, I really love the powder.
I really like that the shimmer is really subtle, but it gives the lipbalm a very cool, shimmery feel.
And for the lip pencils, I’m all about matte, and when it comes to the powders, I use a little more glitter and I don’t really like the shimmery finish.
So, when you think about your day, how do you think of what you wear?
You have your makeup, you have your face, and you have everything else.
So, what are you trying to do for yourself?
What are you looking for?
What I look for in my day is something that is really personal.
So I’m not looking for a certain shade or a certain lip shade, I just want something that feels good on my skin.
In my day, I look at my makeup and what I want.
I look and see what I like, and what feels good, and how much I like that.
I don, like, always wear the same thing
