She came to fame creating simple, how-to beauty tutorials that demystified complex makeup looks. What makes Lisa stand out from dozens of other top makeup artists is she and her team respond to almost all comments and questions on social media. She’s incredibly engaging and sincere.

Lancome partnership: Lisa joined Lancome last year as Creative Director of Makeup.

She retains her editorial integrity by having a contract that says she has complete creative control over what colours and products she talks about and recommends.

The launch: A 16-shade eyeshadow palette divided into four makeup harmonies for easy application.

Back story: Lisa spent months perfecting each shade for this palette. She tested it on numerous skin tones and refined the formula each time. She wanted flattering colours that were very easy to use. She then created YouTube videos to demonstrate different looks and application techniques.

A new texture: These powder shadows have a creamy feel on the skin for added comfort. You’ll see that some shades have a little bit of shimmer in the formula to help blur out the appearance of any imperfections.”

Pro tip: “What I particularly love about this palette is that each of the 16 shadow colours complement all eye colours. It works for everyone,” says Lancome’s Myles Sexton. “For a pop of colour, I like to apply the shadow in the middle of the eyelid just above the lash line. That way you see it only when you blink.”

Pro tip: “Try a rich chocolate brown instead of black as a liner. It softens the look slightly and gives it a modern edge.”

      Great question. I’ll ask. I know it launched in the US last fall. Canada is just getting it now. I’m sure it will launch in the UK.

    I’ve been watching her videos since I knew she existed (which was a first date makeup video I watched when I had NO idea how to make myself up) and I love her more than most other you tubers.
    This and her book are must haves for me. They’ll be too expensive where I am but I’ll get them eventually. This seems like the perfect palette because most palettes don’t suit darker skin tones. I hope this one becomes a big hit considering the effort she seems to have put in.

      I love that she used shades that work on ALL skin tones. That is important to me. The colours have to work on darker skin tones too.
