Backstage make-up artist, Charlotte Tilbury on why we'll all be going nude!

10 September 2008


Move away from the foundation ladies - if yesterday's Matthew Williamson show was anything to go by, you'll need just two things to take your beauty routine into SS09: hair straighteners and lashings of kohl.

Ultra-cool make-up artist, Charlotte Tilbury, told us how she skipped foundation and prepped skin with just moisturiser, concealer and MAC's Cherche cream blusher for the new super-nude look. "I created a wet smoky eye by using Mac cream colours and mixing in a tiny bit of Vaseline for a textured look that's cool, modern and really sexy. To complement the shiny effect on the eyes I left the skin really fresh and glowing and kept the lips natural. My top tip on how to achieve this look is to mix in a tiny bit of rich moisturiser with your concealer and work into the skin using your fingers, the result is flawless natural looking skin!"
