The techniques are executed so meticulously that the effect appears completely natural. Her sophisticated understanding of light and color interacts with the camera, allowing her to produce a high- definition result.
“Anyone can wear any color it is just a matter of applying it well. Be creative and try new things. Technology evolves everyday so why stay back with the old stuff. I am permanently curious and looking for new ways of doing things.”
This expertise is revealed in her work for advertising. Charlotte’s artistry and business-savvy is shown consistently through her work and her understanding of the playfulness of makeup for real women and the commercial viability to sell those looks. She pays attention to a variety of factors such as the brand’s identity, the ad’s color scheme and even the model’s hair style. Her ability to realize these factors is why she is consistently chosen by the top makeup brands to help create and collaborate on everything from color creation to advertising campaigns.
