Celebrity makeup artist Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury is one of the beauty industry’s rising stars, and just like her aunt, the iconic Charlotte Tilbury, Sofia has makeup magic in her DNA!
Growing up, Sofia lived between Ibiza and London. Her exposure to the bohemian, carefree lifestyle of Ibiza had significant impact on her desire to become an artist. Aged 18, after completing a course in Art and Design in London, Sofia began training as a makeup artist, taught by the world’s number 1 makeup artist – her aunt, Charlotte.
After the incredibly successful Charlotte Tilbury Beauty brand launch, Sofia took on the role of Lead Artist at the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty counter in Selfridge’s, London. Two years later, she began assisting Charlotte with her work as a makeup artist, from fashion shows, including Temperley London, Tom Ford, Donna Karan, Versus Versace and Victoria’s Secret, to the world’s most glamourous red carpet events such as The Golden Globes, The Oscars, The Met Gala, The British Fashion Awards, BAFTAs, The BRIT Awards and Cannes Film Festival.
At London Fashion Week, September 2019, Sofia was the lead makeup artist for her first three Fashion Week shows, Agent Provocateur, Temperley London and Olivia Rubin, leading the makeup direction and creating incredible, beautiful runway looks. Sofia has also led the makeup direction for beauty editorial (Vogue Netherlands) and cover shoots (Cosmopolitan Middle East). Sofia has worked with VIP clients all over the world, including Sienna Miller, Irina Shayk, Shanina Shaik, Minnie Driver, Karolina Kurkova, Olivia Palermo, Lorena Rae, Gizele Olivera, Suki Waterhouse, Kat Graham, Candice Swanepoel, Romee Strijd, Danielle Herrington, Maya Henry, Violetta Komyshan, Adele Exarchopoulos and many more.
