I’ve been a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury for several years now – I love everything from her personality to her gorgeous products, and I have a steadily growing collection in my bedroom – everything from glittery eyeshadows to pampering masks, I just can’t seem to get enough! I thought I would dedicate a post to talk about my absolute favourite items from what I’ve tried because the brand is definitely an investment. Here are five of my most loved items that I’d highly recommend for someone looking to begin or expand their Charlotte Tilbury collection:
A more recent launch – I’ve been quite a fan of the Overnight Bronze & Glow for the Springtime because it just looks so natural and healthy underneath my makeup. It’s like a sweeping of bronzer all over my face without any effort at all. It gives a very light, natural bronze glow (as the name suggests) and wears off evenly – there’s virtually no risk of getting patchy because it’s so subtle. I find that the extra glow really does boost my complexion for summer and makes my makeup look the best it can be.
The Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadows are my most used cream shadows from my makeup collection – I have three shades – Jean, Bette and Cleopatra. The first two are incredible neutrals that would work with every skin tone. I literally sweep this over my lids and buff it into the crease, and voila, I’m all done! It’s honestly the most effortless, beautiful addition of colour which lasts really well all day. I definitely want to get my hands on the rest of the shades soon.
One of my holy grail, can’t-live-without favourites has to be the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder. I purchased this last year just before my wedding because I needed something to keep shine at bay – this does the trick so well because it’s literally an airbrushed look without any caking or creasing. I absolutely love it and I know I’ll be repurchasing this forever. It blends like a dream and you need the tiniest bit so the pan lasts a long time!
For lovely lengthened lashes, I’ve often mentioned the Legendary Lashes Mascara. I tend to use this in the evenings if I’m going for a more dramatic look because this formula seriously amps up my lashes and makes them look phenomenal. I’m very lucky to have long lashes anyway, so this gives the look of falsies without all of the fuss. It’s very conditioning as well, with the formula itself containing Tamanu Oil to nourish and strengthen each lash hair.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me share a glimpse of my CT lipstick collection – these are definitely my most loved and most used lipsticks, I’m almost always sporting a good old Matte Revolution Lipstick or something from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. If you’re new to the formulas, a great kit to try is the Your Lip Service* set which comes with three full sized lipsticks in some seriously stunning, yet wearable shades. I’m a huge fan of nude lipsticks so The Duchess is definitely my favourite, but The Queen and Legendary Queen are absolutely beautiful if you’re going for a bolder look. They look great on their own, or paired with a little gloss – and they last so long! I’ve always been a fan of CT’s matte formula as they are definitely some of the best out there.
