Charlotte Tilbury Covent Garden Dolce Vita Masterclass Nelson Catarino

Meeting Charlotte Tilbury’s right-hand man

Charlotte Tilbury is my hero. She is partly responsible for getting me back into make-up after a very long break. I love her as an artist and I love her make-up brand because she has made celebrity style red carpet make-up accessible to everyone.

When I heard that Charlotte’s global lead artist, Nelson Catarino, would be teaching a masterclass at the Charlotte Tilbury Covent Garden store, I booked myself on it straight away. This was my third masterclass with Nelson and I’ve become a huge fan of his as well. He’s also a wonderful make-up artist, specializing in glamourous looks and this time he was showing us how to achieve a glam New Years Eve look. He used the Colour Chameleon pencil in Bronzed Garnet as a base on the mobile lid and a beautiful red eyeshadow from the Vintage Vamp palette on top and in the crease. This was finished off with the lovely bronze glitter from the Dolce Vita palette. Nelson also showed us how to achieve dewy glowing skin.

I had an amazing evening (but probably drank a bit too much prosecco!). I never get tired of seeing Nelson at work and I’m sure I’ll be going to several more of his masterclasses in 2018!
