Born in London and RAISED IN IBIZA, Charlotte grew up surrounded by INSPIRING artists, musicians, actors and writers. With her father, Lance, a painter and mother, Patsy, a fashion producer, she always knew she would pursue a CREATIVE career.
There were two key moments that had a huge impact on her. The first was meeting renowned makeup artist MARY GREENWELL, aged 11, on Formentera beach, which opened her eyes to the world of makeup. The second was discovering the TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF MAKEUP, aged 13, when she started wearing mascara, and overnight people reacted to her in a different and more positive way. “I instantly felt more CONFIDENT, more ATTRACTIVE and more EMPOWERED. I was always walking a path towards makeup artistry."
