Sofia Tilbury, niece of the amazing Charlotte Tilbury, was the make up artist at several key London Fashion Week shows, from Alice Temperley to Olivia Rubin and Agent Provocateur for their respective AW19 shows. She coupled her trademark glamorous aesthetic with Charlotte’s signature glowing skin for the runway looks.

Please find the below quotes by Sofia Tilbury on the looks she crafted for each show:


“To bring to life Alice’s vision of Italian summer escapes and al fresco sunset evenings I crafted a dreamy, ethereal look for Temperley London SS20, that is all about the naturally-beautiful, complexion-enhancing power of Pillow Talk! I created a super fresh, peachy-pink glowing complexion with a bejewelled POP of shimmer on the eyes, so they sparkle like diamonds! The pretty, pearly pink and peachy bronze tones really open the eyes making them look instantly bigger and brighter and perfectly compliment the soft colour palette of the summer collection. To finish this gorgeous look and for the dreamiest, most natural-looking, nude pink pout, I used the iconic Pillow Talk Lip Cheat and Matte Revolution.”


“I am so excited to be working with the amazing Olivia Rubin for her SS20 collection. Today’s presentation is based around the idea of Olivia’s ice cream parlour, with incredible candy colours and pastel rainbows, so I wanted to create a makeup look that really popped with the collection. This look is all about experimenting with colour and having fun! It’s naturally fresh, glossy and pretty with a little bit of a rebellious side! The skin is dewy with a glow, a fresh but polished complexion and 80s style blush for youthful-looking, rosy-pink cheeks. For the pastel pop painted eye, I took inspiration from the brilliant, beautiful colours in the collection – it’s all about creating shapes on the eyes, using blocks of colour, softly blurred and blended, not too defined. The lips were kept natural-looking and balmy with a soft pink stain.”


“Agent Provocateur is all about glamour, fun and the art of seduction and confidence, so for the AW19 show, I wanted to create a timeless beauty look that really channelled this confident, seductive and hypnotising feeling you get when you wear their gorgeous ready-to-wear collection. A natural complexion with a gorgeous Hollywood glow, cheeks with a soft flush of Sex on Fire and a spotlight highlight on the high points of the face. For eyes, my trademark elongated, glossy black feline flick and all finished with a sumptuous, seductive high-shine, ruby red lip for stand-out runway glamour!”
