Charlotte Tilbury - Brand Spotlight

Monday, July 16, 2018

I've been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury for years!  In fact, i remember precisely the moment i fell in love... the arrival of my very first haul! I ordered Eyes to Mesmerize cream shadow in the shade Veruschka, Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Quad, Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, Lipstick in Bitch Perfect and Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow!  Their packaging is so dreamy and the products work like a dream!  Bitch Perfect became a signature lip color for me.  In fact, I'm often asked what's on my lips and most of the time it's this gorgeous lippie!  I swear the lip liner/lipstick combo are perfection. The cream shadow is so easy to blend and doesn't crease while packing on the longevity.  The eyeshadow quad in Dolce Vita is seriously dreamy (not to mention Rachel Zoe approved!) and i rocked the heck out of it!  Basically, these starter products made me essentially fall hard from this brand.  I eventually added a few more items to my collection (side note... the Magic foundation is basically MAGIC and the Light Wand is a current holy grail product and permanent fixture on my vanity).  In fact, I get asked on instagram almost daily what the gorgeous glow on my skin is... well ladies, Charlotte Tilbury's Light Wand is essentially my secret to glowy skin!  It makes me so happy when you tag me in your photos or DM's letting me know that you purchased it based on my recommendation and now love it as much as i do!  Yay!

Fast forward to a few weeks back when i received the loveliest package in the mail from CT filled with so many gorgeous new (to me) products to try! I was so excited to introduce a few more products into my daily routine.  I've been testing them out for a while now and certainly you've seen them featured on insta-stories and instagram but i wanted to focus in on a few that i wholeheartedly fell in love with and think you should consider adding to your makeup/skincare collection as well!

Wonderglow Primer is officially a staple of mine.  It preps my canvas by using soft focus ceramic microspheres to smooth over wrinkles and imperfect skin tone thus creating an anti-aging optical illusion for a flawless, poreless complexion. It also creates a beautifully dewy look that leaves your skin looking radiant.  You can wear it alone or with foundation.  This product truly enhances the wear of the foundation.  I personally love using CT's Magic Foundation with this foundation.  It works like a dream!

Another product I'm LOVING is the Hollywood Flawless Filter.  This is one of those products with a multitude of uses!  For instance, you can wear it as a primer to add a touch of radiance and glow to your foundation.  However, you can add it to your highlight points to reflect the most beautiful, unapologetic glow to your skin.  I swear, this beauty  makes your skin look so naturally healthy and beautiful!  I simply stroke it along the highs of my cheeks and Cupid's bow then pat to blend the product in.  I prefer to use my hands versus a sponge for this but you certainly can if you like!  Whenever i wear this, i always get asked about my skincare routine!  I attribute the natural glow to this magnificent and innovative product.

There isn't a day that goes by that i don't get asked about my blush on insta-stories.  Charlotte Tilbury's Cheek to Chic in Ecstasy has been my go to jam lately.  It adds a beautiful peachy/pink flush of color to your cheeks.  Follow with a few swipes of the Contour Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette for a stunning sun kissed look.  It's seriously stunning!

Charlotte Tilbury also has an amazing skincare line.  The Magic Cream has kept my skin supple and hydrated (i also use the night cream) in combination with the eye cream. They really seal in moisture once my skin is clean and prepped for my skincare). I feel as though these products work seamlessly together to deliver gorgeous skin! The masks are also amazing.  I'm currently loving the Goddess Skin Clay Mask so much.  I use it once or twice a week depending on my skin's behavior and find that it makes a world of a difference in the hydration but also elasticity and overall appearance.

If you love luxurious makeup and skincare in vanity display worthy packaging, look no further than Charlotte Tilbury.  It's seriously one of my top luxury brands and for good reason!  I can't wait to continue to learn more about this beautiful brand and more importantly, excited to see what's coming!

Hope you enjoyed today's brand spotlight and i will be back with more soon including some fun giveaways for you guys!  Be sure you are following along on Instagram so that you don't miss out on those!  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
