Charlotte Tilbury MBE discovered the transformative power of make-up at the age of 13 and has dedicated her career to helping women and men, all around the world, to look and feel like the most beautiful versions of themselves ever since. Before she launched her award-winning make-up and skincare company in 2013, Charlotte had a successful career as a make-up artist working and as creative director for a series of well-known beauty houses. Into her edited but ‘all you need’ collection, she poured her best-kept secrets, gleaned from working at the forefront of the beauty industry and creating hundreds of iconic Vogue, Vanity Fair and other magazine covers with the world’s A-list, models, designers and photographers.
Her mantra is, ‘Give everyone the right make-up and they can conquer the world,’ believing that when you look good, you feel good and the world reacts to you in a different way. A reflection of Charlotte’s own vibrant personality and her understanding of the power of make-up, which she says, ‘is everyone’s secret weapon.’
Charlotte set out to revolutionise the beauty industry with her easy-to-choose, easy-to-use and easy-to-shop make-up magic and supercharged skincare secrets
The bestselling beauty company has also won over 280 awards including winning Best British Brand at the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) awards four times, and Charlotte personally received the CEW Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2018, Charlotte was presented with an MBE from Her Majesty The Queen for her services to the beauty and cosmetics industry.
Much of the impetus for the brand’s success has come from Charlotte Tilbury’s little black book. She has co-created trends on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. She has co-crafted game-changing beauty campaigns for luxury houses like Missoni, Burberry and Louis Vuitton, and has worked with photographers, fashion editors and influencers.
Perhaps the most powerful endorsement has come from international beauties like Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively and Salma Hayek, who have all walked the red carpet wearing a Charlotte Tilbury look – utterly confident and empowered.
