Touring Charlotte Tilbury's Make-Up House of Rock'N'Kohl at Selfridges

posted on: Wednesday, 19 June 2013


This week I popped into Charlotte Tilbury's Make-Up House of Rock'N'Kohl at Selfridges. I went in looking like a train wreck and I came out looking like I was ready to sit for Mario Testino for the cover of Vogue. Ok, that may be a stretch as I'm no Kate Moss, but I certainly felt as if I was ready to visit the offices of Conde Nast. Tilbury's pop-up is quite simply miraculous, and I'm not just talking about her new Magic Cream that I had a chance to sample while in residence with Team Tilbury. Not only do you get to meet the woman herself, Charlotte Tilbury, but you also get a chance to be transformed by "Team Tilbury." The team walks you through every step of the process of your transformation, handing out top tips and tricks of the trade that are used to create the infamous Tilbury look from the cat flick eye to the perfect coverage.

When not sitting in the chair being transformed, you can take a look at some of Charlotte Tilbury's most recognised covers, visit the Kissing Gallery to check out some famous lips or shop some of Tilbury's favourite products. Or, should you feel so inclined, you could talk to Charlotte for a while. She's not one to be feared as I do believe she's one of the most pleasant women in the industry, who was on hand the entire time I was in residence. Several makeup enthusiasts approached her and she greeted them all like long lost friends. The look on their faces was priceless. It was as if they were meeting a superhero. That's not far of the mark for many as Charlotte Tilbury is seen as one of the greatest makeup artists today.
