A Life-Changing Partnership
Celebrated makeup artist and Founder, President, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury MBE has been a supporter of Women for Women International since 2014. In 2019, Charlotte Tilbury committed the full force of her business to bringing about change for women in some of the world's most dangerous places by pledging to donate £1 million to Women for Women International.
As a proud Ambassador of our work, Charlotte’s passion shines through in the creative ways she has engaged her renowned makeup and skincare brand to raise vital funds and awareness for women survivors of war.
£1 Million Pledge
With the funds from Charlotte Tilbury Beauty's £1 million pledge, we have been able to bring our transformational Stronger Women, Stronger Nations programme to new areas and pioneer innovative ways of working with women survivors of war that make an even bigger difference to their lives and their families. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the £1 million pledge funds helped us continue to provide crucial support to women during a challenging time, by distributing 11,000 facemasks and 1,205 hygiene kits to women in Rwanda and Afghanistan.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
To mark International Women’s Day 2020, Women for Women International Ambassador Charlotte Tilbury designed ‘The Magic Within’ t-shirt as part of NET-A-PORTER’s t-shirt collection. ‘The Magic Within’ was inspired by the power, courage and hope within all women. 100% of profits from the magical collection were donated to our work with women in war-torn countries.
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty also generously donated products to our 2023 International Women’s Day Instagram giveaway, and has hosted contactless donation devices in stores for International Women’s Day, inviting customers in-store to make a donation to women survivors of war.
In 2021 and 2022, Charlotte Tilbury donated funds from each magical Holiday Stocking sold online to support women survivors of war.
