Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury recently launched her own line of namesake products in the U.K., and we eagerly await their arrival here in the States. In the meantime, their temporary appearances backstage at New York fashion week will have to suffice. Here, the face painter (@ctilburymakeup) chronicles her Fall 2014 beauty adventures in this exclusive photo diary for Style.com:
“The first rule of fashion week…Always be prepared… #nyfw #ctfw”
“Rule number two: Always be organised! #ctfw #nyfw”

“Playing with pigments! @maccosmetics #ctfw #nyfw”
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:

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).
