Last week I was invited to Selfridges to world’s no.1 make up artist Charlotte Tilbury masterclass celebrating the launch of her new Norman Parkinson limited collection that will be available at Tilbury’s new Trafford Centre Selfridges counter in August. “In this unique collaboration, Charlotte Tilbury has teamed up with the Norman Parkinson archive to create a makeup and accessories collection, dedicated to and decorated with the legendary British fashion photographer’s iconic images. The collection includes a new Filmstar Bronze & Glow – Suntan & Sunlight, Colour Of Youth – Lip & Cheek Colour, Dreamy Glow Highlighter, Matte Revolution in Miss Kensington, Matte Revolution in 1975 Red, ‘On Call’ Makeup Bag and The Bathing Beauty Bag, as well as two new & exclusive looks, Miss 1975 and Miss Kensington, inspired by Parkinson’s timeless photographs.”
Celebrity make up artist Nelson Catarino showed us how to re-created two famous looks form the collection: The Miss Kensington think Kate Middleton, British Rose and The Miss1975 look that was inspired by the iconic Gerry Hall.
I decided to go for sun-kissed Miss 1975 look ” inspired by Jerry Hall’s first British Vogue cover, shot by Norman Parkinson on Montego Bay, Jamaica in 1975. Touched by the magical alchemy of Norman’s light, she oozes 1970’s glamour but in a fresh, modern update with her flawless complexion, bright sunset red lips and mesmerising eyes.”
I enjoyed so much my makeover session and would definitely advise to check out new Charlotte Tilbury counter at Trafford centre launching next month. Speak soon. X
