The older I get the more I’m able to appreciate good make-up. And when I say good I don’t mean alright, I mean bloody brilliant high-end stuff that makes your eyes water when you’re handing over your bank card but for the rest of its life you will cradle it in your hands like a precious little baby. That’s the kind of make-up I’m taking about. I’ve never been one to be blown away by MAC or Illamasqua or even Nars for that matter. I mean they surely are excellent brands but they’ve not yet managed to steal my heart. In contracts – Charlotte Tilbury has done it. Villain-style. Her products are fault-less, her brand is on spot and her 10 iconic looks are the very cherry of everything that I love about her. The look I’m sporting in this post is her Golden Goddess – of the aforementioned 10 iconic looks which is all about the strobe, the warm earthy tones and lip cheating.
The 4 most ingenious things about these Charlotte Tilbury looks are:
✓ you can buy a whole set of products for this look which means you can be dead sure you’re matching products which will 100% work and compliment each other
✓ you can watch Charlotte Tilbury herself recreate the look on her YouTube channel (click here) – she also gives you the best tips on how to use each product to its maximum potential
✓ the colour palette of these products means they are virtually foolproof – because the shades are so very neutral and sophisticated there is a little room for error when picking the right shade for your skin tone
✓ you can always create a day, a date and a night out look with the very same products
These are the products I used on my face today:
Luxury Palette Colour-Coded Eye Shadow in The Golden Goddess
K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipsticks in Bitch Perfect
Lipgloss in Ibiza Nights
Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk
Eye Powder Pencil in The Classic
Film Star Bronze & Glow
Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Ecstasy
Kudos to Charlotte Tilbury for launching her own brand – it’s very difficult to steer me away from my standard Clarins quad and Bobbi Brown lipstick go-to brand loyalty but she’s done well. So well, in fact, that I’ve already shortlisted two new CB additions for my make-up bag – it will be the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipstick in Nude Kate and the Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude.
