Celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury sent beauty fans into a frenzy when she announced her first ever store in Covent Garden. They weren’t left disappointed when the doors opened in 2015, unveiling an Art Deco beauty parlour of products, makeover counters, and even a champagne bar.
Born in London, Tilbury trained at the Glauca Rossi School of Make-up in her hometown before ambitiously going on to work with some of the best names in the industry creating beautiful photoshoots with the likes of Mario Testino, Annie Leibowitz, and David Bailey for the biggest magazines around. She has also created the make-up looks for A-listers including Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, and Natalie Portman, and acted as a creative consultant for the beauty lines of Tom Ford, Chanel, and Mac, before launching her own.
Her ethos is to make women feel their most beautiful and give them the confidence to conquer the world with products that are easy to choose, easy to use, and easy to gift. In just a few years, her range of skincare, make-up, and fragrance has won multiple awards, notably CEW’s Best British Brand of the Year in both 2015 and 2016, and created cult classics such as her Matte Revolution Lipstick, Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight, and the moisturising Magic Cream.
