FNM Exclusive: Lindsay Ellingson Has Literally Earned a Prestigious Honor For Her Red Lipstick

Model and entrepreneur Lindsay Ellingson tells FNM about Wander Beauty's new Paris-inspired cosmetics (and the prestigious honor it's received.)

 

If you ask us, Lindsay Ellingson deserves all the prestigious beauty awards that exist, so it only makes sense that her new makeup line is earning them!

After ten years in the fashion industry (and eight as a Victoria's Secret supermodel), Ellingson co-founded Wander Beauty, a line of luxury cosmetics inspired by her travels. The collection, in particular, is notable for offering multi-tasking makeup essentials for women on the go.

"Wander Beauty's newest collection is a full line of products, from your brows to your eyes to your lips, and one of the highlights is our Paris-inspired collection," Lindsay tells us in the interview above. "I lived in Paris for a year when I first started modeling … and that's where my passion for beauty really sparked."

"This is a collection that is near and dear to my heart," she adds.

Wander Beauty's newest line is also extra special for Lindsay, because it's just earned accolades from Harper's Bazaar for having the best sheer red lipstick. (And that's no small feat, as anyone who's seen a cosmetics aisle can attest.)

"What's different about our red lipstick is that it's super hydrating," says Ellingson. "The formula is also buildable. I wanted to make this red lipstick a multitasker, so you can wear it sheer, as a subtle stain, or you can build it up for that classic Parisian red lip."

"It's really versatile. You can wear it however you want."
