Our #Getting Social series is BACK!  The hottest round-up of inspiration we’ve found on the web, with some help from all of you!  We asked you to send in your own work and links to others who have inspired you, and now it’s time to share.  Time for #Getting Social – Editorial Edition.

Almost every day is #ThrowbackThursday on Sandy Linter’s Instagram page!  She posts pictures of the work she’s done over the decades, rooting out old copies of Vogue from the ‘70s and snapshots of the original supermodels in their prime.  Worth a look to see how editorial make-up has evolved!

We spotted this brilliant eye look on the W Magazine Instagram page, which jolted us right out of our autumnal gloom; a great choice of shade by MUA Diane Kendal!  Then we were even more blown away by the transformation of actress Jessica Chastain for their November cover story – make-up by Sammy Mourabit.

We loved this ‘Royals’ editorial for Glassbook magazine, channelling jewel tones against flawless, satin skin.  Tawny browns, flushed pinks and different textures ground the colours and make them work.  The minimalistic hair and bold make-up, both by Natalie Ventola, offset each other perfectly.


For any student readers, Lisa Eldridge has a fab video on how to create a graphic liner look on all eye shapes.  Having a couple of bold eyeliner looks in your arsenal is never a bad thing!

J. Patrick managed to bring deft touches of colour and light to contrast the obsidian headdress on the model for this Noise Magazine cover look.  The pastel blue eye and candy pink lip, shot through with highlight, lighten the look and create an interesting distinction, emphasised by the textured eye.

We also loved this dark look for Notion Magazine created by Danny Defreitas and photographer Linda Cooper, aptly titled The Damned and Adorned, which celebrates the best of dark, sultry make-up and embellishment, luxurious headwear and decorative face pieces.  The pair must have worked hard to collaborate between the make-up and lighting to capture the complexity of the crystal adornments, while still highlighting the make-up.  You can find the rest of the images here.

In contrast, we loved this coppery tonal look by Jasmin Jalo for Korea’s Luxury Magazine – simplistic yet stunning.

Editorial make-up goddess Kelly Cornwell has a fantastic Instagram page, full of shots of her latest work.  From wearable to futuristic, she creates looks for all of the top magazines.  You can read our full interview with Kelly here.
