Celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury with one of her 12 Hot Lips muses, Emily Ratajkowski

It’s the cleverest beauty pitch ever – but CHARLOTTE TILBURY‘s Hot Lips series, 12 lipsticks inspired by female icons Tilbury has worked with, definitely delivers. Mattes are cashmere-soft, formulas are rich, creamy and longlasting. Even the tips are square-angled for precision application. The guilty pleasure is matching the shade to the celeb. Hot Emily, a vibrant coral, is inspired by Emily Ratajkowski and references the ’70s hues in the American Love Story and Charlie’s Angels. Nude Kate, a soft biscuity beige that Tilbury describes as ‘the ultimate shade for every rock chick’, was initially mixed for Kate Moss. www.net-a-porter.com
