You'll have seen Charlotte Tilbury all over your social meeja at the weekend as she was in Ireland to take us through her delicious new collection. And we suspected that the nation drooled collectively (there were puddles around the Beaut HQ offices by the time everything had been examined.
Always big on glamour (and bessie mates with Kate Moss), it’s not a huge surprise that Charlotte Tilbury’s Christmas collection was inspired by supermodels. Specifically the classic 90s era of Cindy, Naomi, Helena and their ilk. It’s all about the eyes, teamed with glowy skin and an understated lip. You’re probably meant to have incredibly glossy big blow-dry hair too and if you have Richard Gere hanging off your arm, well, you have it nailed.
Now, while we don’t think the products will turn us into Cindy Crawford as soon as we get them on our faces, they are the tools for a lovely smoky eye and a classic nude lip (Charlotte Tilbury does a great nude lip). The latest collection is a trio of new products which are all available now.
The pretty limited edition palette Luxury Palette (€59) has a new wet and dry formulation. You can use it dry for buildable colour or dampen the brush for a more intense, reflective finish. The quad contains Prime – a pale golden pearl to wash over lids, Enhance – an antique molten silver for the outer eye area, Smoke – a matte sooty black to define and Pop – a metallic bronze for a bit of shimmer on top.
There’s a limited edition K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick (€30) in a tawny nude with gold particles to add a bit of iridescence and a limited edition Lip Lustre in Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds (or L.S.D), a shimmery rose champagne shade which would be lovely for a party look (€22).
Completing the Supermodel look are the already-available Rock N Kohl liner in Bedroom Black, Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk and Tilbury’s famed Full Fat Lashes mascara.
You’ll find the range in Brown Thomas Dublin (or online) and at Net a Porter.
