It’s here! Reknowded make up artist Charlotte Tilbury is launching her range next week at her own website, Selfridges and Net-a-porter. What awaits us? Luxurious art deco inspired packaging, formidable high quality formulas and online tutorials accompanying every single product. The whole idea is that anybody can apply make up and learn how to beautify themselves using Charlotte’s products and tips. I am a huge fan of Chatlotte’s work (Vogue, W, ID – you name it) and of her fab tutorials on net-a-porter and onnher own blog. Excited about this launch is an under statement, it is great to see a range mixing the best of the old world (vintage inspired packaging) mixed with the new world (tutorials).
Frida is one of my style heroes. I visited her house in Mexico many years ago and was mesmerized by her use of colour, style, originality and her tearing love story with husband and freedom fighter Diego.
My little brother gave me a market bag with Frida on it which I carry around a lot. I love it.
Whilst browsing Pinterest I found many like minded people who have been inspired by her style and are real Frida aficionado’s. I definately belong in their camp and adore Frida. My love for the combination of hot pink (pantone 226C) and turquoise probably comes from her. Viva Frida!
