Artists In Residence
The ‘Artists In Residence’ concept is a familiar one in the world of arts and artists but is completely unknown when it comes to the world of makeup and beauty.
This is something we are addressing here at Beauty Hygiene Plus, through the launch of our Artists In Residence programme. It is a chance for you to be personally introduced to some of the UK’s most amazing, talented makeup artists and for them to showcase some of their most inspiring makeup artistry. In addition to showing you how they create some of their most stunning and diverse looks, they will also be showing you how to perfect your everyday makeup routine, whatever your age, skin tone or sense of personal style.
Over the course of 2021, we will be inviting several top makeup artists to join our Artists In Residence programme. They are the makeup professionals responsible for creating the show-stopping looks that decorate the world’s fashion catwalks, magazine covers and red-carpet events, and each will be given a creative free reign to showcase one or more of their ‘signature’ styles, especially for us. As they demonstrate their creations, they will also provide top hints, techniques and tips for you to achieve your own stunning makeup effects, not just for everyday use but also for special occasions and troubleshooting.

As professional makeup artists, our Artists In Residence are fully aware of the importance of cleaning and sanitising makeup, beauty tools, brushes and sponges, and preventing the possible spread of a whole host of potential ‘nasties’ including herpes and conjunctivitis. During their demonstrations, they will show you how they use Beauty Hygiene Plus’ cleaning and sanitising products, including our Quick Dry Makeup Sanitising Mist, Quick Dry Brush Cleaning Spray, Quick Dry Makeup Tools Sanitising Spray and our Deep Cleanse Sponge & Brush Wash to keep their own makeup kits bacteria and virus free, and how you should use them in conjunction with your own makeup, brushes and beauty tools, too. After all, the importance of makeup hygiene in stopping the spread of bacteria and viruses is something that effects everyone, not just the makeup pros.
Our first Artist In Residence is Lisa Armstrong, an award-winning celebrity makeup artist and designer. Her career spans editorial work for magazines such as Cosmopolitan, the beauty presenter’s job on ITV’s This Morning, the X-Factor tour, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice, amongst many others.
Since 2007 Lisa she has been Chief Makeup and Hair Designer on BBC’s flagship TV show Strictly Come Dancing, where she is responsible for creating the hair and makeup for the entire show. In 2014, her and her team were awarded the prestigious CRAFT BAFTA award for their work. Lisa has also been nominated for a CRAFT BAFTA in her own right and has received a prestigious RTS award, recognising her as one of the highest achievers across the television industry.
In addition to joining our Artists In Residence programme, Lisa is also fronting our hard-hitting ‘Filthy Looks’ beauty hygiene awareness campaign, designed to impress upon all makeup users the importance of cleaning and sanitising makeup, brushes and beauty tools, between each use. As a professional makeup artist, Lisa is fully aware of the danger of catching herpes, conjunctivitis or many other ‘nasties’ from unclean makeup or beauty tools, which is why she plays smart, and keeps her beauty gear safe, by always using Beauty Hygiene Plus cleaning and sanitising products.
