What are your makeup bag essentials?
Charlotte Tilbury is a brand I discovered over 2 years ago. I was chatting away on Instagram with the lovely MarusJaStyle and loved her photos. Those photos were in fact Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. From that moment on I’ve been hooked. I adore Charlotte’s line and it is by far one of my favourite high end brands on the market. I wanted to share with you some products that are essentials in my makeup bag…
Wonderglow is a must have in my opinion. I only like to wear this when we have special occasions or we head out for the day when I’m not in work. I don’t like to use such an expensive product just for work, I don’t need to glow much there lol. I love the effect of Wonderglow. It leaves such a gorgeous glow to the skin and works beautifully over Charlotte’s magic cream. One thing I will say is you can definitely tell you have used a beautiful primer as your makeup looks different, in a good way though..
CT Magic Foundation
When I first picked this up I was quite disappointed with it. I didn’t understand all the hype around it as it definitely didn’t do much on my skin. I just felt like I wasn’t getting the coverage I wanted. This foundation claims to be full coverage however I feel it’s more medium to full. I picked this foundation up in shade 6 when I first got it. Shade 6 is a neutral golden yellow for medium skin tones with a neutral olive undertone. I have an olive undertone to my skin and this one sounded perfect. However since my skin has been clearing up I feel this foundation suits my skin better than it used to. I also wear it more when my skin is tanned as I realised shade 6 doesn’t match AT ALL when I’m not tanned. I may give shade 5 a go to see what it looks like on my skin…
CT Airbrush Micro Powder
I am such a huge lover of powders. If there was one powder I could have repeats of it would be this. Again I only wear this on off duty days. I find I go through one of these quite quickly though, it is very finely milled which makes it looks gorgeous on the skin. You only need to apply it with a light hand too across your tzone, perfect for setting your makeup. I use the medium 2 shade loves…
CT Eyes To Mesmerise
If there is one eyes to mesmerise pot you need in your life its the shade Jean. It’s such a beautiful shade, described as a champagne pink. I am absolutely in love with this shade. I like to use this all over the lid or as a base colour before other shadows. I like the colour of this product so much especially for earlier mornings. I use this to make my eyes look more awake which is what you want at 7am lol. It also has a cooling effect once it’s applied to the lid..
CT Dolce Vita Palette
This palette is a best seller from CT. I can definitely see why, the shades in this palette are absolutely gorgeous. The Dolce Vita palette is my favourite palette from the line. Dolce Vita is described as a bronze and copper toned eyeshadow palette. You can also see how much this palette is loved by me as the prime shade is literally used up. There are a few looks you can create with this palette too using Charlotte’s desk to dusk to disco method. I highly recommend this palette if you want to try Charlotte’s shadows…
CT Kissing lipstick
One of my favourites that always makes it’s way into my makeup bag is the shade Penelope Pink. It is a nude lipstick with pink undertones. Penelope Pink is a shade I always need to have amongst my CT lipsticks. I adore this shade and wear it quite a lot, whether it’s work or a day off. You can wear this alone or under the lip lustre in Seduction..
CT Bar Of Gold
When I discovered Charlotte’s brand I also found out about Bar Of Gold. Sadly it wasn’t in stock at the time and I was so gutted. This product looked stunning and I love highlighters. Luckily Charlotte announced that there was going to be a restock and I managed to get my hands on this after all. This product is lovely and gives a nice glow to the skin. Gold pearls give you the most gorgeous highlight loves…I really want to try the Beauty Light Wand though. Have any of you tried that??
If your interested in any of the products below you can take a look…xo
