“It all started to emerge to me to form an overall,
incredible picture of colour. These incredible depictions

Corine, the palette
With this makeup colour palette, Lancôme celebrates the
sculpture of Corine, Greek poetess of the 5th century BC
presented in the Richelieu wing of the Louvre. The poetry
of this palette created by Lisa Eldridge, is inspired by
the gallery’s magnetic light, punctuated by the relief
of the sculptures and revealing their silent but
For the Richelieu Wing Palette, Lisa Eldridge chooses
Corine by Edme-Francois-Etienne Gois, a representation
of the heroine from the novel Corine by Germaine de Stael
(1807) as the cover image.
“It’s a beautiful palette but it has a very empowering
story as well. Corine was portrayed as an aspirational
woman of creative genius and femininity. Yet you couldn’t
be an artistic genius and a woman. ‘’ Lisa Eldridge
Organic, poetic, the palette of shades inspired by the
magic light of the Richelieu Gallery is powered by a
technology designed for greater colour impact and
Each shade takes its name from a different part of the
Richelieu wing and around; from eyeshadow the shade of
peridot inspired by the Cour Puget to the copper light
Cour Carrée; the marble shade of the Cour Marly to the
pink shade of the Royal Palace.
“The texture is very smooth, easy to blend. With these
hues, you can use as highlighter, from light to deep
skin tones, you could also use a mix. You can apply it
with a finger or a brush, on eyes, lips. The green shade
is striking – as a liner, or for a smokey eye.
I’ve chosen this design because of Corine, herself: it’s
very much about her struggles because at that time you
couldn’t be a genius and a woman; but she explained it
from a very feminine point of view, which was quite
For the Louvre campaign I wanted to create a look with
the palette that had a little drama. I chose to use the
deep green shade in a soft but graphic shape to create
a ‘double wing’ liner look along the upper lash line
and the outer edge of the lower lash. I combined the
eye look with a really fresh and radiant skin using the
highlighter in the palette to give extra luminosity. A
full rich lip completed the look for beautiful He

Director immersed herself in the Richelieu gallery of
the Louvre, invited after closing time to be one-one-
one with humanity’s greatest treasures, bathed in the most spectacular light.
