British make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury has prepped, powdered, painted and spritzed the faces of celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Olivia Culpo and Nicole Kidman. She’s considered one of the most influential make-up artists in the business. And though Australian shoppers already have access to her eponymous beauty range online, from today we’ll be able to get our hands on the full range at a number of Mecca’s Australian stores too.
Mecca head of artistry Tony Baumann tells Broadsheet, “Charlotte is best known as the make-up artist to the stars, a change-making female entrepreneur and one of the most highly regarded and influential visionaries, innovators and make-up artists of all time.
“For the first time, the full collection of 44 Charlotte Tilbury Beauty foundation shades will be available both online and in 59 stores [across Australia and New Zealand], allowing consumers to be shade-matched by Mecca’s expert artistry team.”
That means you can walk in and swatch shades of her products – including the Airbrush Flawless foundation, Cheek to Chic two-tone blush, Beauty Light Wand liquid highlighter and the cult my-lips-but-better Pillow Talk nude lipstick – against your skin, taking the guesswork out of complexion-matching.
“The Pillow Talk eyeliner is for sure one of the hidden gems of the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty collection,” says Baumann. “The smoky berry-brown shade is easy to blend, long-lasting and perfect for adding sultry, dreamy definition to your eyes.”
Mecca has also expanded its beauty services with exclusive Charlotte Tilbury treatments. There’ll be the option to book full-face makeovers of her 10 signature make-up looks, from the Uptown Girl and the Vintage Vamp to the Bombshell and the Queen of Glow; an Express Glow Up make-up application; Luxe Skin facials; Charlotte Tilbury Icons Beauty Lab classes; Supermodel Brows Beauty Lab classes; and a Magic Skin service. Treatments will be available at select Mecca stores only.
For states still in lockdown, Mecca’s experts can answer questions and offer personalised advice online, including foundation shade-matching and product swatching.
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty launches in-store and online at Mecca on Tuesday September 21.
