Charlotte Tilbury, the celebrated U.K. makeup artist known for her singular artistry—which has graced virtually every magazine cover, runway show and celebrity face—has a cult makeup line that (finally) came to the U.S. this fall.
I’ve been more than a little obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury for a while now. Check out her videos and you’ll see why. She makes makeup artistry a science we can all learn and embraces its ability to empower women in such a fun, healthy way. AND, she’s built her glowing empire while being a devoted mom to her four-year old son and new baby.
I had some fun yesterday playing with her entire makeup line at Bergdorf Goodman. I haven’t been this impressed with a makeup line since my beloved Tom Ford cosmetics launched a few years ago. I bought everything, eyebrows to lips. There is a magical quality to her products that make you look fresh and glowy, particularly when you use her famous Magic Cream, which moisturizes and contains skin-plumping hyularonic acid, followed by her inimitable Wonder Glow primer and Light Wonder foundation, (which is light but buildable). Tilbury’s easy-to-use face sculpting and highlighting kit adds depth and warmth and the most beautiful shimmer—that coveted twinkle on the cheeks of celebrities that, to me, always seemed so impossible to pull off. I’m equally obsessed with my new blush, aptly called Cheek to Chic Swish and Pop because it has a ring of a slightly shimmery color surrounding the deeper pop of color in the center. Lastly, I found my ideal nude-ish lip color with this Penelope lipstick and a bit of this Seduction gloss on top, which gives lips a gorgeous three dimensional shine.
Oh, and I really dig Tilbury’s rose gold, slightly disco packaging.
Can you tell I’m in love?
Check out the entire Charlotte Tilbury line on her website. This is one of the most exciting, anticipated cosmetic launches in years. Please report back and tell me what you get! xx.
P.S. Tilbury also really won my heart with her social campaign, #MakeupYourDestiny, which celebrates makeup and how it can impact self-confidence. You can participate by creating a split screen image of your younger self with a current photo and tagging it #MakeupYourDestiny.
