CHARLOTTE TILBURY’S NAUGHTY CHRISTMAS PARTY AND LAUNCH OF HER FLAGSHIP BEAUTY BOUDOIR IN COVENT GARDEN
Charlotte Tilbury, the world’s #1 make-up artist throws the party of the year to celebrate the next phase of her beauty revolution – her first, one-of-a-kind flagship beauty boudoir on James Street in Covent Garden, London.
Charlotte celebrated with a host of famous friends, including Kate Moss, Amal Clooney, Salma Hayek, Naomi Campbell, Kate Bosworth, Samantha Cameron, David Gandy, and Dominic West. Guests enjoyed Casamigos Tequila ‘Casa Daybreak’ cocktail, Belvedere Vodka cocktails ‘Raspberry Rascal’ and ‘Skinny Bitch’, Champagne Jacquart and Gingeralla Ginger Ale. British classic pub food was served including Mini Cumberland Sausages, Quail Scotch Eggs, Mini Cottage Pies and Apple Crumble Tartlets.
Tilbury called upon friend and long-time collaborator Chris Levine to create a psychedelic light installation which was projected onto the store and party building. Levine’s work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience more widely and a spiritual and philosophical edge permeate his work.
The after party took place at The Nag’s Head Pub where the Christmas spirit was in full flow with a Mistletoe Wall, burlesque Tequila girls offering Casamigos Casa Daybreak cocktails and a Kiss n Tell All Wall where guests could write messages in lipstick and leave lip prints.
Charlotte’s team of expert makeup artists ‘Team Tilbury’ were stationed in the bathrooms providing makeup touch ups for guests.
DJs Ben Bridgewater, Dan Lywood, Hugo Heathcote and Antz provided tunes that kept the dance floor filled all night.
Guests left the party with a goody bag filled with Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Bathing Beauty Bag & Filmstar on the Go in two shades.
Makeup by Team Tilbury for Naomi Campbell, Salma Hayek, Amal Clooney, Laura Bailey, Kate Bosworth, Millie Mackintosh and Alicia Rountree.
Chris Levine is a light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of sensory experience through image and form. Levine’s work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience more widely and a spiritual and philosophical edge permeate his work. Levine is perhaps best known for producing what is already being described as one of the most iconic images of the twenty first century, Lightness of Being. With light as its message, the sensational portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II presents an utterly fresh depiction of the most famous woman in the world. Levine is a pioneer in the field of light art, innovating with advanced technology in pursuit of the deepest possible visual sensation. His work has often been described as transformational.
The Nag’s Head has occupied No10 James Street since at least the 1670s. An iconic London pub with neo-Jacobean architecture at the heart of Covent Garden, just a hop, skip and jump from London’s Underground station and Royal Opera House.
The pub – a McMullen establishment since 1927 – delights tourists, locals and workers alike across two floors, 7 days a week with true hand-crafted real ales, world beers, fine wines and hearty traditional pub food and after-work libations.
