”I want to make every woman the most beautiful version of themselves” – are the first words you find on charlottetilbury.com. As she grew up in a creative environment (her father being a painter and mother a luxury production manager) she was destined to follow a creative path herself, in the shape of makeup artistry. After training at Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London, she started pursuing a career as a makeup artist and started building professional networks with models, stylist and photographers.
As one of the world’s leading makeup artists, having worked with top photographers, A-list celebrities, iconic publications and the biggest beauty brands in the business, and with over 20 years of practice, she decided to take off her own line of cosmetics in 2013. The self-named brand became an instant global success, delivering top-notch products that are easy to choose, easy to use and easy to gift. Charlotte also believes that every woman wants to feel beautiful, powerful and sexy, and that makeup is a great way to achieve just that.
The Rebel, The Dolce Vita, The Golden Goddess and The Uptown Girl are 4 of the 10 signature makeup looks featured on her website, fit to suit whoever you feel most similarities with or if you feel like adapting a new look according to what mood you’re in. Tilbury’s classic go-to look is The Dolce Vita; an ultra-feminine, utterly alluring look with seductive lips, chiselled cheeks and smouldering eye makeup.
WHAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE THE DOLCE VITA LOOK:
Dolled down version for the evening:
Start with applying Prime shade all over your eyelids, using The Luxury Palette to create a mesmerizing eye makeup, followed by placing the Enhance shade into the eye socket and along the upper and lower lash line. Draw a classic Sophia Loren-inspired cat eye with The Feline Flick in Panther and finish the eye makeup with Full Fat Lashes Mascara in Glossy Black.
Dolled up version for naughty Dolce Vita nights:
Intensify your eyes by lining the waterline with Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eyeliner in Bedroom Black. Continue using the Enhance shade, but placing it all over your lids for deeper colour and smudge out the Smoke shade on the upper and lower lash line for a defined, hypnotizing look. Lastly, get that fabulously glam look with the pigment filled Pop shadow and apply one extra layer of mascara.
Trace the natural line of your lips with Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk and apply K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink for the ultimate Dolce Vita effect. For a three-dimensional effect and popping lips, apply Lip Lustre Lip Lacquer in Seduction.
