Charlotte Tilbury Makeover

I had the chance to get some advice on applying makeup from Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup team. The sessions were being held in Selfridges and for £55 you would be shown how to apply makeup based on one of her ten signature “looks” (i.e. The Ingenue, The Bombshell, The Rock Chic, etc.) and then redeem the £55 against her products! I of course jumped at this chance, so off I went to Selfridges where a lovely makeup artist took me through every stage from skincare through to full makeup.

I chose The Rock Chic look as a perfect smokey eye is something I always wanted to master!

The first thing she did was remove all my makeup using two products – Take It All Off Genius Eye Makeup Remover (£24) and the Multi-Miracle Glow (£45). I absolutely loved the Multi-Miracle Glow. It smells amazing, is so soft and luxurious and left my skin beautifully clean and supple. Next she massaged Charlotte’s Magic Cream (£70) into my skin. This also smelled gorgeous and was very moisturising. My skin was definitely dewy!

Next she applied foundation. The colour match for my skin was 9 Dark (£32). This gives a medium coverage with a glowy finish. She then used The Retoucher in 3 Medium (£25) under my eyes and around my nose followed by WonderGlow (£38.50) on my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.

After all this prep my skin did look very healthy and glowing without being too shiny. She then contoured and highlighted using FilmStar Bronze and Glow (£49) and then she dusted my face with the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 2 Medium (£33).

Next she started on the main feature – my eyes. I wont go into each step but she used the Luxury Palette in Rock Chic (£38), Feline Flick in Panther (£22), Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black (£22), Rock ‘N’ Khol in Bedroom Black (£19) and Brow Lift in Cara D (£22.50).

Finally she finished off my look with a sweep of Cheek to Chic in Love Glow (£30), the lipstick Nude Kate (£23) and some Blondie Lip Lustre (£16.50)

I absolutely loved the final look – it is definitely not something I would have been able to acheive on my own. I found every minute of this so much fun and such a good learning experience. In the end the makeup artist spent over an hour and a half with me and talked me through everything she did giving hints and tips. The products are so lovely and it was hard not to buy everything! I am so happy I did this and would highly recommend it anyone!
