Tilbury is one of those magnetic personalities who attracts women as extraordinary as herself. She’s a makeup consultant to the likes of Kate Moss, Amal Clooney, Cara Delevingne and many glamorous others. Her upbringing included a stint on Ibiza with her bohemian parents followed by professional work with major beauty brands as a consultant and artist. A proponent of the transformative power of cosmetics, Tilbury likes to say, “Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world.” All of that plus her bubbly British accent make her our top pick for that role of fairy godmother and style savior.
For one lucky lady, Tilbury played just that. Meet Project Confidence winner and lovely mother of two young children Vanessa Benke.
