TIPS FROM TILBURY


After 20 years working with the world’s A list models, celebs, designers, magazines and photographers, makeup artist extraordinaire Charlotte Tilbury has finally brought all her industry secrets to Australia with the release of her ‘all you need’ skincare and make-up collection.

We reckon that's pretty awesome news - there's just something about makeup that not only helps to accentuate our best assets, but makes us feel good too! I know that for many of us, gorgeously applied makeup brings out our inner confidence and helps it to shine that little bit more brightly. And if there’s one person who truly gets this, it has to be Charlotte.

The one thing this makeup-wiz has learned over the years?  Beauty is not an exclusive club! Fool-proof makeup is every woman’s secret weapon.  And fool-proof her collection definitely is - this clever lady has decoded her expertise into essential make-up tricks, tips and tools that are easy to use, easy to choose and totally irresistable!

The carefully edited collection offers 100 problem-solving products, broken down into 5 easy steps: Prep, Prime, Perfect & Conceal, Facial Framework and Colour. It's makeup made simple.

Okay, now for my favourite part - the colour-coded looks! All of Tilbury’s colour products have been curated into 10 colour-wardrobes that reflect the lifestyle and personality of 10 different women.  They’re all so gorgeous it’s almost impossible to choose, but I managed to narrow it down to a few of my faves…

1. THE INGENUE 

  

I absolutely adore this look.  Inspired by fresh-faced models such as Mia Farrow, Alexa Chung and Kirsten Dunst, it’s perfect for any day of the week.

Get the look:

COLOUR CHAMELEON Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil - $37

CHEEK TO CHIC Swiish & Pop Blusher - $60

2. THE GOLDEN GODDESS

 

This golden-goddess look was inspired by Ursula Andress, Elle McPherson, Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss.  Beautifully natural and bronze-y, this look is definitely the most versatile of the three.

Get the look:

LUXURY PALETTE Colour-Coded Eyeshadows - $78

FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW Face Sculpt & Highlight - $97

3. THE ROCK CHICK

This one was inspired by Brigitte Bardot, Anita Pallenberg, chameleon Kate Moss (no surprise she fits across more than one look!) and Cara Delevigne. Rock chick? More like rock-chic!  It’s the perfect look for a night out on the town.

 

Get the look:

THE FELINE FLICK Quick Fine Line Shodō Eyeliner Pen - $49

K.I.S.S.I.N.G NUDE KATE Fallen From The Lipstick Tree - $49


Last but not least, the packaging… Oh. My. God.  It is seriously drool-worthy!   Inspired by 1930’s cigarette cases, beautiful cut-glass perfume bottles of the 1950’s and the modern allure of Paloma Picasso, these products have such a gorgeous vintage feel but with a bit of a modern twist.  They’re almost too good to keep hidden away in your makeup bag!
