“I want to help women avoid making mistakes by doing all the hard work for them, by finding the perfect colours for all skin tones. No longer will you have to suffer the indignity of trying to copy a look from a magazine, only to find that what made Kate Moss look fabulous, makes you look more drag than drop dead. Base, blusher and lip colour are sorted according to the three skin-tone families – there are three shades of base, three blush, and six glosses, and three lipsticks, with matching pencils.” — Charlotte Tilbury
In early summer 2013, it became known that Charlotte Tilbury, one of the world’s most sought-after make-up artists, launched her own line of cosmetics. This large collection of make-up by Charlotte Tilbury is now sold at the department store Selfridges, on Oxford Street in London.
As to the range of a collection, it must be said, has turned out bigger than the Marc Jacobs Beauty line. One hundred types of products for all occasions, ranging from mild skin care and make-up finishing .
“I’ve poured absolutely everything into this range – from my experience with product, knowledge of colour and backstage tips and tricks, that make it universally flattering and super wearable. I hope that make-up artists will fall in love with the colour harmonies and textures, and that every woman will love how easy and effortless the products are to choose and use. After more than 20 years in the beauty industry, I wanted to launch more than another make-up artist range. It’s time to revolutionise how women shop, choose and use make-up!” said Charlotte Tilbury.
Charlotte Tilbury on her cosmetics line : “I’ve put blood, sweat and tears into this range. I’ve always said that if I’m going to put my name to something, it had better be amazing and it is.”
The packaging is stylish and compact. The main color is gold mixed with dark maroon and white. Each jar,is decorated with the initials CT.
