AOFM graduates were invited to our London Studios to join a very exclusive masterclass with Makeup Brand Charlotte Tilbury.
Charlotte Tilbury has built a reputation over the past 20 plus years as a world-class makeup artist, a permanent fixture behind the scenes at Fashion Week and friend and makeup artist to the red carpet celebrity set all around the globe. Her makeup brand although only launched a couple of years ago is fast becoming a favourite with females and makeup artists everywhere so we were very excited to once again be able to offer our students a masterclass with this famous brand. This particular presentation was to showcase a very special collection where Charlotte Tilbury had teamed up with the famous photographer Norman Parkinson’s archive to create a makeup and accessories collection which was dedicated to and decorated with the legendary British fashion photographer’s iconic images. Norman Parkinson worked with every iconic beauty imaginable between the 1930s-80s, some of his muses being Jerry Hall, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, and Twiggy and was a huge source of inspiration to today’s great photographers such as Mario Testino. After the presentation Charlotte Tilbury’s global lead makeup artist Nelson Catarino famous for doing such celebrities as Amal Clooney on her wedding day and Cindy Crawford to name but a few gave a demonstration of the makeup look created on Jerry Hall for that very famous photo by Norman Parkinson back in the 1970’s.
At the end of the presentation everyone moved upstairs to enjoy champagne and canapés while they shopped through the entire makeup range of Charlotte Tilbury’s new makeup collection. What an amazing opportunity for our graduates to fill their kits with one of the industries most luxurious brands.
