With the abundance of high-end makeup lines, it can be hard to decide which is the best brand for you. Some may attract you because of trusted endorsements while others may catch your eye from an Instagram ad -- but not many stand out because of a charitable cause.
Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury recently launched her brand-new Hot Lips 2 Collection which aims to empower women in addition to completing the perfect beauty look. The lipstick collection is comprised of 11 prominent shades inspired by iconic women and men including J.K. Rowling, Amal Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Kylie Minogue, Edward Enninful, Sofia Vergara and her biggest beauty inspiration -- her mother, Patsy Tilbury -- among others.
"When I created this range, I wanted to create a new colour world for everyone – looking for gaps in the colour spectrum and mixing the most nuanced, super flattering, super wearable shades!" creator Tilbury said of the line. "These shades have superpowers, they look incredible on everyone! I always envision the colour and texture, and how they complement each other to make the shade even more unique and incredible," she continued.
The festive lip shades were made with the intent to fit every type of woman and if the shades weren't already appealing, the collection is launching in tandem with a £1 million ($1.3M) pledge by Charlotte to Women for Women International. This impressive pledge is one of the largest corporate donations Women for Women International has ever received and will go toward funding women survivors of war rebuild their lives. The charity's year-long training program will expand into key new areas in Iraq and Nigeria and will teach women how to earn and save money, improve their family's health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.
Hot Lips 2 Collection debuted June 20 and is available at Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Wonderlands and online at CharlotteTilbury.com and other popular online sites such as Sephora.
