DARLING ON THE RISE with Sofia Tilbury
Athleisure Mag|June 2020
We have been fans of Charlotte Tilbury for a number of years as we love her approach to creating inclusive products, ensuring that these items truly work as well as including innovations within her assortment of makeup and skincare.

You also know that she's just as passionate at making her celebs and red carpet beauties look fantastic as well as her fans. Her niece, Sofia Tilbury has this same passion and works with her aunt to continue her initiatives. We find out more about the brand, her makeup journey and more.

ATHLEISURE MAG: What is it about the beauty industry that inspired you to work in this field?

SOFIA TILBURY: Growing up in Ibiza, makeup, fashion, art and beauty were always around, so it’s hard to remember when I first became inspired by the creative world, but I always looked up to my aunt Charlotte in her career as a makeup artist. Photography and art were my favourite subjects at school, so I my first real experience with makeup was looking at fashion magazines and trying to recreate Charlotte’s cover looks on my friends so we could take photographs! When I started to get into beauty, Charlotte’s biggest blessing was to let me come and work for her. She said the most important thing for a career in beauty was assisting someone, so you can watch and learn first-hand, and she was SO right. Working with Charlotte is the best makeup training you could ever get!

AM: A number of people dream of working with as well as being mentored by a visionary in their field. How is it to work so closely to an industry icon as a makeup artist as well as to learn the business from your aunt?

ST: When your aunt is Charlotte Tilbury and you want to be a makeup artist, there’s a huge pressure to be incredible, and you definitely feel like you have a lot to prove, but Charlotte is all about confidence and she empowered me every step of the way! I had to start where any other makeup artist would, and I had to work my way up, but it was the best way to learn. Charlotte is the most incredible mentor, so I feel super lucky to have been able to follow her and learn how she works her magic!

AM: What has been the best beauty tip that Charlotte has shared with you?
