I was just looking through Jezebel (again…) and came across this article. (http://intothegloss.com/2013/05/charlotte-tilbury-makeup-artist/)
Charlotte Tillbury never removes her makeup unless she’s alone. She is a makeup artist that caters to many celebrities and believe that she is helping women feel better about themselves. She says that people reactions about her appearance change depending on if she is or isn’t wearing makeup. The majority of the article is her discussing her makeup routine and all of the products she uses. At the end she says, “I realized makeup is a huge part of really enhancing and playing up somebody’s features to their advantage. Beauty is power, and makeup is something that really enhances that; it’s a woman’s secret weapon”. This reminds me of several readings from class about how makeup and other beauty rituals are often done not only for the individual but also for the audience.
