Meeting Charlotte Tilbury

As a make up artist I love to learn more and expand my make up knowledge whenever possible. Throughout my career I have admired and looked up to iconic make up artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury. Everything about this lady is inspirational, her work ethic, her drive, passion and magnificent skills as a make up artist and business woman have seen her develop into a hugely successful entrepreneur and a household name around the world.

“I want to make EVERY WOMAN the most BEAUTIFUL VERSION OF THEMSELVES- Charlotte”

In 2013 Charlotte launched her own make up line of fantastic  products, I was first in line to try out this make up brand and over the years I have added more and more of her products to my kit, loving each and every one. The packaging is so luxurious and I love the reaction of delight I get from my clients when I take out one of the products from this brand. I am honoured to be a Pro make up artist member of this beautiful make up brand.

six-shades-of-love-love-glowYou can just imagine my delight when I saw that Charlotte Tilbury was coming to Brown Thomas Dublin for the launch of her christmas gift collection & to talk all things make up.

I knew this was a special event I could not or would not miss.


My two make up artist buddies Dawn, Laura & I all attended together for lots of make up chats, prosecco, treats, plenty of giggles & girly fun in Dublin while meeting one of our icons.


The only way I can describe our evening in Brown Thomas is absolute top class. We were treated like royalty from the time we entered. There was lovely electric & fun atmosphere with a constant flow of Prosecco, chocolates, cookies, make up samples & goodies all handed out throughout the evening.

The evening began when Karen Coster of Xpose interviewed Charlotte  for a live Q & A session, which was fantastic and so inspiring to hear advice, tips & tricks from such a renowned make up artist. It was also great to hear all the information about the Christmas collection, gift ideas and make up advice for the party season ahead.


Afterwards we all got to spend a few minutes individually with Charlotte, to be honest I was completely starstruck and could hardly contain my excitement. she was such a lady with such a friendly approach. Understandably I had butterflies when it came to my turn, but after such a warm and friendly greeting from this amazing woman, I was soon put at ease and able to enjoy my few minutes with such an icon. She was happy to answer any questions I had and gave me the most kind & sweetest compliments. It really was a moment I will treasure.





Charlotte signed this gift box for me, along with lots of goodies which we were giving on the night.

I left that night feeling so excited and very inspired as a make up artist, Thank you Brown Thomas for such a special evening with a true star.

I hope you all enjoyed this little insight into my make up world.
