Charlotte-Tilbury-Beauty-Exclusive-set-nordstrom

After 20 years of helping top-notch models and actresses to look their most beautiful, British beauty and makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury decided it was time to channel all of her expertise into her own line. Since its launch, Charlotte’s incredible lineup has been taking the UK by storm, and starting this September, it will be available right here at Nordstrom. So excited! Luckily, none of us have to wait until fall to try one of her amazing products, because we’re offering the Charlotte Tilbury ‘Filmstar Killer Cheekbones’ Set right now as a limited-time Beauty Exclusive during our Anniversary Sale.

Packaged in a compact that’s inspired by the elegance and glamour of the 1920s, these genius powders allow you to sculpt your face just like the stars in Tinseltown. Apply the shading color where you want to sculpt (the hollows of your cheeks, temples, jawline and the sides and tip of your nose), then apply the highlighter on top of the cheekbones and down the center of the nose, cupid’s bow and brow bone. Just blend, and bam—you’re ready for the red carpet!

We can’t wait to bring on even more from Tilbury. Stay tuned for official dates and more highly coveted beauty products from this much-adored Brit makeup maven.

Jane So, a Nordstrom Beauty Stylist from Montgomery Mall in Maryland, shares her guide to flawless, radiant skin.


My mom and me

Growing up, I always admired how beautiful my mother was. She is my greatest inspiration: a fashion designer and artist who always rocked her own unique style. I was inspired to embrace my own kind of beauty and not be afraid to stand out. After exploring different positions in retail, I fell in love with being a beauty stylist. My goal is to bring true beauty from within. I want to inspire people to be their own kind of beautiful and feel confident in their own skin, just like my mother taught me.

I love being a beauty stylist because it allows me the freedom to not only express my creativity but to customize beautiful looks for every customer. As a beauty stylist, I can share my knowledge and teach people how to be their very best! I love that I’m able to provide personal product recommendations and create a one-of-a-kind beauty. I am your ‘go-to’ girl, your best friend for beauty and someone you can trust! I will be there whenever you need me and you can count on me to make your day an amazing one! I love what I do because it embraces all that I am and gives me the chance to share my beauty secrets and bring true beauty within everyone. Today, let me share my secret to flawless, radiant skin!

“Be the best version of you!” This was a fun one-on-one beauty master class I had with my customer Michelle, where we focused on achieving radiant skin.

Want to glow and shine bright like a diamond? This season is all about healthy, glowing skin, and I want to share with you some of my favorite products!

First, I cleanse by gently massaging Erno Laszlo ‘Phelityl’ Pre-Cleansing Oil into the skin. Then I dip my Erno Laszlo ‘Sea Mud’ Deep Cleansing Bar into warm water and massage the bar directly onto the face, rinsing with warm water after a few minutes.

Once the skin is cleansed, I protect with Clarins ‘Double Serum®’ Complete Age Control Concentrate before applying any makeup products. This powerful serum is made up of 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules. You will get firmer skin, reduced wrinkles, more even skin tone and less visible pores in just four weeks.

To add radiance, I use Laura Mercier ‘Radiance Bronze’ Primer to give skin a smooth, glowy surface. Wear this fabulous product alone or under your foundation for a sun-kissed glow. Hydrating, water-based gel preps skin with radiance. It’s formulated with a blend of jojoba oils and vitamins A, C and E to keep skin healthy.

Lastly, I touch up the face with CHANEL ‘Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15′ powder to add a soft contour around the frame of the face. This is a beautiful product that will enhance, brighten and bronze for a custom glow with a sheer, luminous finish.

Give your face a subtle pop of color this summer. Recently launched, these cheek and lip shades from Clinique add a bright little burst without going overboard.

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm blooms on contact to highlight the natural tones and hues of your lips, giving you a little bit of color and a whole lot of hydration. The Cheek Pop blush is truly mistake-proof—you don’t even need a mirror! Just apply it with two fingertips and you’re good to go for a natural summer-flushed look. Great for your on-the-go makeup kit, these buildable, sheer colors are essential for a no-fuss touch-up.

M·A·C Senior Artist John Stapleton demonstrates how to create a smoldering smoky eye using products from the Kelly Osbourne for M·A·C collection.

Working as Kelly Osbourne’s makeup artist has been incredible, and it all began with a lipstick. One of the first lipsticks I used on Kelly was M·A·C Pink Nouveau. The lipstick was loud, crazy, and left of center, much like the young singer.

The M·A·C Kelly Osbourne collection is perfect for all her fashion-forward fans. The smoky purples from her Bloody Brilliant Quad will be stunning on any woman. Read on to learn how to achieve the perfect smoky eye.

Christopher Stark, one of our talented Beauty Stylists from Nordstrom Natick Mall, shares some of his go-to summer beauty essentials as well as his current favorite makeup trends.

Twenty years apiece of hairdressing and makeup artistry allow me to be fairly edited as far as what and how I sell to my customers. 
It is my biggest belief that every person who sits in my chair should be given a look that she loves and can achieve at home. I always want people to feel their best and, most importantly, feel confident that they can apply their makeup themselves. Being a beauty stylist is a dream job, as I can be honest and straightforward about everything I recommend…and stay away from!

Kate Fannin, our beauty trend editor, is gearing up for the summer season with bright, brilliant color.

Nothing says summer like a Popsicle™ (remember when you and your friends would fight over who got the red one?) – which is why we’re so excited about all the Popsicle-bright shades for lips and nails this season. The best part is, anything goes! Pops of pink, magenta, fuchsia and cherry are always fun for lips. OR, try a new trend by layering colors—a bold pink gloss looks amazing over a fun orange lipstick to create your own custom color.

For nails, take a vacation from elaborate nail art and keep it simple but punchy with colors like watermelon, tangerine, lemon and cantaloupe – who knew your granny’s citrus Jell-O mold could inspire such a hot summer trend? If you’re feeling more than one color or can’t decide, try different hues on different fingers, or contrast your fingers with your toes. And don’t forget a great top coat – not only will extend the life of your mani/pedi, but high-shine is a must for a summer “wet look.” Just grab your swimsuit, slather on the sunscreen, and you’re ready to show your bright side (no Jell-O mold required)!
