If there’s one make-up artist everyone should know about, it’s Charlotte Tilbury. The British beauty guru is responsible for working her art on some of the most beautiful women in the world including Jennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz, Rihanna, Kate Winslet and Jennifer Anniston. She brought her craft to Venice where she had Amal Clooney in her make-up chair on the day of her wedding to George Clooney. She’s spent her career working with some of fashion’s best photographers including Mario Testino and Terry Richardson. She’s Kate Moss’ go-to-girl, working with the supermodel since the early days of her career. Charlotte Tilbury is the woman the industry has on speed dial. Her work is revolutionary, creative and fun – and she has the personality to match! We caught up with the world’s most sought-after make-up artist (and our very own Expert Panel member!) to talk about her new collection and beauty must-haves.
BeautyDesk: WHO WAS THE LAST CELEBRITY YOU WORKED WITH?
Charlotte Tilbury: I worked with the divine Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio in New York. We created a gorgeous, haughty but naughty, swinging sixties look. Sara is the ultimate Victoria’s Secrets Model; she has long, lithe limbs that last forever. I applied my Supermodel Body to the centre of her legs and arms to create even more perfect, glossy, sculpted limbs. For the evening, I changed Sara’s lip for a more dramatic, siren-esque pout, with a beautiful matte coral-red lip for a head-turning, vintage inspired look!
