When running from show to show and writing endless beauty reports during New York Fashion Week, we bumped into the lovely Charlotte Tilbury so took some time to chat A/W trends from the lady in the know...
What do you reckon is the biggest new beauty movement for AW?
In my opinion it’s pale skin, no blusher and lipstick with full on liner. Oh and Avatar’s influence so those very lifting cat-like eyes which go up toward the temples.
What is your hero product of A/W2010?
Lashing of mascara, individual lashes, lipliner and beige lipstick.
What style do we most need to get to grips with next season?
The three Ls: lipstick, liner and lashes.
Who is your beauty muse/hot new model of the season?
Lindsey. She’s got a heart shaped face and looks like a roman painting. She’s the new face on the cover of Life magazine and the new face of fashion.
What’s in your kit today?
My Anya Hindmarch make-up and wash bags have changed my life! They’re like pencil cases but chic. They’re black with gold zips and have lots of different compartments that are labelled for each section, just beautiful. Guerlain’s Super Aqua day cream was introduced to me by Natalia Vodanova. It’s great for when the girls step off a long haul flight because it instantly puts a youthful glow back into skin. I’m using Lancome’s Genifique the serum, eye cream and cream, it’s amazing. I’m also taking Minimi Mor DHA Omega 3 supplements from The Hale Clinic, they have given me back my thick hair after having a baby. I also love put the Shu Uemura eye patches which are great for getting rid of puffy eyes.
