When it comes to makeup artists, there are good ones and then there are great ones. Then, of course, there are those that exist in such an elite stratosphere that their creations are considered by many to be works of complete and utter genius. In this vein, you’ll find the name Charlotte Tilbury. She is one of the world’s most sought-after make-up artists and has a black book as legendary as one would imagine to go along with such a title. In September 2013, Tilbury will launch her first make-up collection. It’s debut to the world will be made at Selfridges and in anticipation of the big event, Selfridges have worked with Tilbury and team to create a week-long beauty festival celebrating all things beauty and Charlotte.
For Make-Up House of Rock’n’Kohl, Tilbury has opened her bag of tricks as well as her little black book to create a week of epic tutorials and guest speakers. I’m very pleased to be a part of the festivities as I’ll be spending time at the beauty festival on the opening day, Monday the 17th. From 3:00pm-6:00pm, I’ll be making my way around the space, checking out tips and speaking to the experts. I’d love for you to come down and join me, say hello and maybe stay for a while to share some free beauty treats.
Wondering what will be on offer? For starters, a very special portrait of Kate Moss will be unveiled in the evening in the iconic corner window of Selfridges. They’ll be a very special guest in attendance but I’m saying no more. On offer in the actual space for the beauty festival you can get a ‘Tilbury Transformation” makeover, an eye transformation at the Quick-Flick Eye Bar, free ‘Rock’n’kohl’ nail art designs, lipstick readings from the psychic sisters and a chance to take a closer look at some famous puckers in the Kissing Gallery.
The entire beauty festival runs from 17th-23rd of June! There’s a whole schedule of events and speakers so visit selfridges.com for the full run-down and a chance to book tickets for talks with industry leaders.
See you Monday!
