Backstage Beauty: Charlotte Tilbury for M•A•C

You get to meet a lot of talented artists at Fashion Week, and today was no exception. We had an incredible experience watching one of the world’s top makeup artists, Charlotte Tilbury as she created the looks for M•A•C at Cushnie et Ochs.

With work appearing in Vogue, Vanity Fair, V—the list goes on—and a client list full of celebs that reads like a who’s who of the fashion industry, Charlotte is a well-established and widely recognized name in the world of beauty and glamour. Here’s what she created at the show.

Elongated, winged eyeliner was the call to action for creating simple but elaborate standout eyes at Cushnie et Ochs. Charlotte described it as the ‘feline flick’, and walks us through how to get the look.

“I used M•A•C Kohl Pencil in Feline to draw an elongated feline shape and added exaggerated intensity with M•A•C Gel Liner in Blacktrack over the top. The lashes were then curled, and mascara was applied along the top lash line. Last, I added the Feline pencil to the top waterline of the lashes to really build that hypnotizing, feline shape.”

Charlotte’s tip: Draw a dot on the outer corner of the eye where you want the flick to end. From the dot, draw a line downward to the lash line, which creates the perfect triangle every time.
