Dare to dream, make it happen, break all the rules: Charlotte Tilbury is the iconic brand that started a revolutionary journey to challenge the status quo of the beauty industry and elevated itself to a cornerstone of the industry.
Let’s discover it together!
Pills of History
This brand doesn’t need any introduction, but we’ll try and follow the history of Charlotte Tilbury: her past in Ibiza, where she met Mary Greenwell, the global success as a makeup artist and the creation of the Charlotte Tilbury beauty brand, up to the days of the “Amal Clooney: Wedding Makeup” video and the success of her Youtube Channel which counts, to this day, 796.000 followers. Every little step has brought Charlotte to the Olympus of beauty, being one of the most sought-after names in the Industry, and having founded a brand many, many makeup artists swore by.
Charlotte Tilbury has been the life-changing brand for a lot of beauty addicts who, discovering the enormous quality of Charlotte Tilbury’s products have also discovered a new way to do makeup and now they swear by it. With an English background (she was born in London) and a great passion for beauty since she was very young and living in Ibiza, Charlotte has started her journey in beauty with passion and curiosity.
She transformed this passion into a flourishing career by attending the Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London and, later, assisting makeup artist Mary Greenwell, who she first met in Ibiza. Before founding her own brand, Charlotte worked as Creative Director for several beauty companies, among which Armani, Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford, and she’s created a large number of covers for Vogue.
Her expertise and her talent as a makeup artist turned Charlotte into one of the most sought-after makeup artists in the industry, just like now her line is an absolute icon.
The Charlotte Tilbury beauty range launched in the UK in September 2013 with a London-based office with a record-breaking debut and is now available in most countries and on a near-global online distribution.
The Mission of the Brand
Glamour, beauty and quality that is always top-notch: Charlotte Tilbury has accustomed us to great products, often grouped in mesmerizing “full looks” such as “The Supermodel Look” or “The Queen of Glow Look,” shiny campaigns and interesting “how-to” video on YouTube breaking out the secrets of Charlotte’s art.
The iconic Pillow Talk lipstick will give people, according to Charlotte’s words, “the best lips of their lives:” every product in Charlotte Tilbury’s shelves is a love letter to beauty and a promise that even if only a little bit, a touch of makeup has the power to make us feel better, stronger, more sophisticated. Through ground-breaking products, Charlotte Tilbury as a brand aims to bring out the outer and inner beauty of its customers. Charlotte, in an interview with Byrdie, talked about the power of Makeup and how it impacted her life when she was a teenager — changing the perspective people had of her almost overnight when she started wearing mascara.
She said, “Makeup can give you the confidence to change your job, move abroad, get a pay raise, get that man you’ve always wanted.” Makeup can literally give us the confidence boost we need on a certain day, to feel at our best and to go the extra mile.
