Charlotte Tilbury was born in London, but grew up in bohemian Ibiza, surrounded by artists, actors, writers and musicians. Her father was a painter and her mother was a luxury production manager, so she was meant to be creative. When Charlotte was 11, she met the talented makeup artist Mary Greenwell, who inspired her to train at the Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London and pursue a career as a makeup artist.
Tilbury works with the world’s best photographers like Mario Testino, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, Annie Leibowitz, David Bailey, Steven Klein, Michelangelo di Battista and Terry Richardson; A-list celebrities and models such as Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Amal Clooney and Natalie Portman and of course not forgetting iconic publications like Vogue UK, US, Paris, China and Brazil, Vanity Fair, GQ and many more. Her portfolio includes fashion shows and campaigns such as Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Rachel Zoe and Missoni.
In October 2012, Tilbury launched a YouTube channel providing make-up tutorial videos and a blog. In September 2013 she created her make-up collection, including “Charlotte’s Magic Cream” that she has been mixing for years and used backstage by some models and celebrities. Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line includes many high end products and the bestsellers are:
