It’s All About Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury is known for her effortless smoky eye glam and flawlessly finished skin. The looks she creates are timeless and catered to suit all modes of glamour. In my opinion, Charlotte comes across as somebody who loves being a woman. And why not?! She embraced her love of makeup and took it to another level; not even allowing somebody knocking the door with a parcel  to see her without a glimmer of makeup. I used to be judgemental of people who had to be seen with makeup at all hours of the day. After watching her ‘In The Bathroom’ YouTube interview with Sali Hughes (see video below), I actually see why somebody would wear makeup 24/7.

I adore how much Charlotte comes across as a woman’s woman. She is all for heels & makeup, and it is not a hindrance to our gender as others might argue. It’s empowerment! We are women and we should embrace that fact; even revel in it.

Her Products

The Charlotte Tilbury products are all about quality. Even the shape of her mascara wand was so detailed that it nearly couldn’t get into production. They have a luxury price tag but they certainly show their worth. The flawless filter finishing powder is out of this world. If you are not a fan of loose setting powder then this one is for you; There is no fallout from the product, it is lightweight and goes on like a dream. I always associate the Charlotte Tilbury brand with a smoky eye and a classic nude lip. Her lipsticks are beautiful shades in divine rose gold packaging that are the perfect nude pigments. The new Pillow Talk Eyeshade Quad Palette looks is a must have for my kit. The colours are so Bridal and summery. I would wear them every day.

When it comes to blushers, these come with an individual technique. Usually, you do the same “swiping” motion . With the Charlotte Tilbury blushers, such as ‘Ecstasy’, you roll on the application area and dot in the centre with your brush. Why? Because you will notice that in the centre of the blusher there is a different pigment. This is adding a special flush or highlight to your face. Just trust the process.

What I didn’t realise was just how wonderful the lightweight foundation is. The coverage is truly exceptional. I never used to wear light coverage and now it is all I use – I prefer being kinder to my skin the older I get. It smells gorgeous too!


Up until a year or so ago I had only been able to covet Charlotte Tilbury products in shop windows. Nowadays, I adore all of the products (I own many personally and within my kit) and admire Charlotte Tilbury as a person. You can see why she is a successful makeup artist, makeup brand owner and one of the faces of the beauty industry. In my humble opinion, she has become something of an icon.
