Cara Delevinge told Vogue U.K. that inner eyeliner is as good a man repeller as clogs or overalls. But the super won’t have anyone hating on her bitty braids: “And I liked to have cornrows as much as possible—which I don’t think was a beauty disaster because they looked fucking cool…” [The Cut]
Jay-Z isn’t the only rapper breaking into the fragrance category—Pitbull (a.k.a. Armando Christian Pérez) is launching two eponymous scents for both men and women come December 1 on Amazon.com. But don’t expect him to stop there. He’s planning to launch fashion, accessories, and beauty products. We look forward to lipsticks named after some of his greatest hits, like “Gasolina” and “Hotel Room Service.” [WWD]
When it comes to her strands, Cate Blanchett goes Method. She tells Allure.com about shaving her hairline and her entire head, and wearing a wig.
Charlotte Tilbury’s line isn’t the only thing that makes us want to hop across the pond and shop at Selfridges. The comic-themed edition of Carmex exclusive to the retailer is making us think that the Brits are starting to have an unfair beauty advantage. [Twitter]
Suffice it to say, the staff of Style.com has the opportunity to try many a luxe product with just a quick trip to the beauty closet. So let it speak volumes that yes, I happily shelled out $40 in shipping for the chance to try Charlotte Tilbury’s eponymous line, not yet available in the U.S. After trying out a small sample of the famed face painter’s much-lauded (and aptly named) Magic Cream, I was hooked—and unprepared to wait for the collection’s Stateside debut in early summer. Taking to the Web, I was delighted to find that U.K. mainstay Selfridges shipped across the pond for the aforementioned sum. A few clicks later, my debit card was feeling significantly lighter, and a selection from the range was on its way. Without further ado, some highlights from the collection.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipstick in Nude Kate
Named after Ms. Moss (who often has Tilbury to thank for her artfully kohl-smudged eyes), this richly pigmented, tawny pink-nude offers full coverage in one swipe. From the rose gold case, which closes with a satisfying click, to the subtle vanilla scent—this one’s a treat for all the senses.
The Feline Flick Quick Line Shodõ Pen in Panther
The learning curve for the perfect cat-eye just got a bit shorter. Inspired by Japanese calligraphy brushes, Tilbury created a jet-black liner that glides effortlessly along the lash line and makes it easier than ever to nail a flawless wing.
Apply this all-in-one, ballet slipper pink formula to dry skin, massage in, and rinse away to remove every trace of makeup. On cleansed skin, apply a generous layer and leave for ten minutes for a mask that’s hydrating and healing. As a balm, it banishes dry patches on elbows, knees, and cuticles. The heady jasmine scent even serves as a kind of incidental aromatherapy.
Filmstar Bronze & Glow
In the genetic lottery, some of us weren’t blessed with prominent cheekbones. Tilbury has taken the mystery out of the art of contouring with this sculpting and highlighting duo, housed in a weighty, deliciously Deco compact. The buttery powders pair nicely with the brand’s tapered Powder & Sculpt Brush to help create the illusion of enviable bone structure where there isn’t any. Smoke and mirrors at its finest.
Before she hit the front row at the designers’ show yesterday, Ireland Baldwin (daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin) spent some time in the makeup chair, trying on the full look minus the punchy red lip, and wound up in the middle of the dynamic duo themselves. Here, her hashtag-filled report:

Backstage makeup session by Charlotte Tilbury’s team—she has such a talent!
Aren’t we looking gorgeous together?!? #DeanCaten #DanCaten #Dsquared²
While we’re always fans of a loud mouth on a runway—especially one filled with minidresses and retro-inspired maillots—Baldwin brings this poolside goddess look down-to-earth with a nude lip and slightly bumped-up hair. We think she’ll fit right in at the glamorous tiki bar dreamed up by Dean and Dan Caten (ahem…when the 17-year-old is of legal drinking age, of course).
Fashion weeks (yup, plural) just wouldn’t be the same without the magnificent work of Charlotte Tilbury. The London-based makeup artist with a more-than-two decades-long career has become a ubiquitous backstage presence—her Marisa Berenson-inspired creations for Donna Karan just this week were particularly killer—and an immediately recognizable one at that, with her flame-colored lioness mane and omnipresent pair of heels. Besides tending to basically every single notable model’s visage, Tilbury also counts celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna, and Penélope Cruz as regulars and has, over the years, collaborated with an impressive list of style luminaries, Katie Grand, Carine Roitfeld, Stella McCartney, and Tom Ford among them. And this month, Tilbury launched her very own meticulously curated line of makeup at Selfridges in London. Needless to say, we were eager to pick her beauty brain.
THE COMPLEXION ESSENTIAL
“My number-one must have is a facial from the incredible Sarah Chapman. She gives you the most relaxing and youth-boosting facials, which are essential after the craziness of the fashion weeks.”

THE NAIL GURU
“My manicurist, Claudine Cooke, gives me the most amazing manicures and pedicures in London. Make sure you follow her on Twitter @claudine_cooke.”

THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAUNTS
“I live in Notting Hill, in London, and it’s the perfect place [to find] inspiration for my work. I love to browse Portobello Market for vintage treasures and can’t help stopping at Mr. Christian’s on Elgin Crescent for some [delicious] food.”
THE HOMEGROWN FAVORITE
“I grew up on the island of Ibiza. I try to go home at least once a year, and when I do, I make sure that I visit the local pharmacies, where I find the most incredible Rose Vaselina that you can’t get in London.”
THE ONE-AND-ONLY BEAUTY NECESSITY
“Mascara is my desert island must-have! I started using it at the age of 13 and I haven’t stopped since. My lashes are instantly transformed from fair and short to long, luscious, and glossy. It’s also so important to curl them to open up your eyes and get that perfect flutter.”
THE VERY SIGNATURE SCENT
“I have been mixing my own scent for years, and I just can’t live without it. It’s a blend of rose, neroli, and some secret ingredients inspired my childhood in Ibiza and my mother’s rose-scented beauty products.”
THE MANE TAMERS
“Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and a Mason Pearson hairbrush are my haircare essentials. I am so inspired by sixties icon Brigitte Bardot and her gorgeous, slight beehive hairstyle. I use these products to tease my hair and give it a little bit of height in the back.”
