FOTD Inspired By Lisa Eldridge #MyLisaLook: Golds and Red



This look is inspired by @Lisa_Eldridge’s latest video – Old Hollywood Inspired Party Look With Vintage Golds. While I was watching it, I was already thinking how I’d do it on my own features. I just featured the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood eye palette, and it’s perfect for this look! To watch Lisa’s tutorial on YouTube, click here.

For the eyes, I used Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Sunlight Gold all over the lid as a base. Sunlight Gold is already quite shimmery, so all I needed was to gently pat on Gold sparkle eye shadow. All eyeshadows used were from the Old Hollywood palette. To add a little definition, I used Beige on the hollow of my eye socket and Chocolate Bronze on my lower lash line. Ivory was perfect to highlight the brow bones too šŸ™‚ That’s it for the eyes. Quite simple, isn’t it? I used MAC gel liner in Blitz & Glitz to tightline and a few coats of my Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara. Some lashes would make my eyes look bigger and lashes more defined, but if you’re a regular reader, you’d know how I feel about them šŸ˜›

For the lips, I used Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Nocturne. It photographs brighter, but in real life, it is a deeper red. I used NARS Laguna bronzer on my cheeks, and I didn’t add any blush. I actually quite like the paler cheeks and ka-pow red lips. The eyes are quite shiny too so it’s great for parties. What do you think? Should I have added some blush so I didn’t look like a vampire? LOL!




That is my take on Lisa’s look. I love all her videos. She makes her tutorials easy to follow, and doesn’t blab or yap on and on and on about other stuff, you get what I mean. What would I give to have my makeup done by her!

So anyway, what do you think I could have done to improve this look? Feedback appreciated, guys! As always, thanks for reading and have a great Monday!


xoxo Lily




  • I like Lisa Eldridge but I rarely watch any videos…just don’t have the attention span, LOL. This look is really beautiful, Lily! I love the eyes and the understated cheeks – really lovely!

    • Thank you Larie šŸ™‚ Lisa’s videos are really easy to watch. I love listening to her voice… kinda soothing. LOL!

  • I’m not a huge blush person so I think you look great without it. There’s just something so sophisticated about deep red lips – I must check this lip colour out šŸ™‚

    • Thank you! Yes, this shade (Nocturne) is super sexy!

  • Nida Moughal

    the look is perfect =) no improvement is needed.

    • Aaw, thank you! So kind of you, Nida šŸ™‚

    Lisa Eldridge is my FAVORITE MUA and Youtuber I have learned so much from her tutorials I love that she does wearable looks and you have recreated this look so beautifully.Honestly speaking she is my favorite for creating pretty wearable looks on Youtube and on blogs it’s you I am a huge huge fan of your makeup skills and looks I am always looking forward to your FOTDS and Sunday stash shopping posts.

    • WOW! Thanks so much Sataa. Your kind words really meant a lot to me :-*

  • Hey Lily, I love your take on Lisa’s tutorial! Your cheeks are so defined even without any blush, so I personally think you can let it slide here. That lipstick is amazing!!! I’ve got to look into this line šŸ™‚

    • Hey Sunny. This red is amazing. I think it looks dark enough to be sexy but not too vampy šŸ™‚

  • You look great! I think I might have to try that lip-it’s a cooler red which maybe I can wear! But I do think red lips make me look so old now haha. I need to get rid of all my red lipsticks I think. Sad I know. But necessary.

    • I still disagree with you Tracy. I think you can definitely pull off a red! However, with your new hair color, you look friggin amazing in bright pinks! !!

  • Oh Lily this look is beautiful! I reminds me a little of you “Parisienne/French” look! Classy & polished! šŸ™‚

    • Aaw, thank you Helene. You’re too sweet šŸ™‚

  • Um. Seriously. You look flawless. Stunning. And this is one of my most favorite styles of makeup, to top it off šŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much Catherine! All the compliments! You guys are awesome šŸ™‚

  • Your eyes balance your lips perfectly! Love the look and that red is stunning!

    • Thank you Taylor! <3

  • Bella

    You have perfectly adapted this look to yourself. I love it and want to try it too! (I’d probably add highlighter or blush because I don’t have your cheekbones, but you don’t need it at all.).

    • Aaw, thank you Bella šŸ™‚ I hope you’ll give it a try too! Lisa made the tutorial very easy to understand.

  • Liz

    I love this! Classic red and gold never gets old for me. See? You look great in red. šŸ™‚

    • Thanks Liz šŸ™‚ I’ve been liking reds more nowadays. Hehe
