Use makeup to express your natural beauty and to tap into your self-confidence.

French Global Pro Makeup Artist Patrick Lorentz has worked for Estée Lauder for nearly 30 years. He began his career as a hairdresser, but soon discovered his passion for makeup, seeing his role in a woman’s life as a true responsibility—someone who is able to decode both what his clients say and what they don’t say in order to understand their expectations and help them feel their most beautiful. In addition to working on several members of the Lauder family, including Aerin Lauder and Estée’s daughter-in-law, Evelyn Lauder, Patrick’s work has appeared in Vogue, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan. He also works with many influencers and leads artistry events throughout France and internationally.
