“Give a woman the right makeup, and she can conquer the world”
Sephora’s Summary: “After 20+ years as a world’s top makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury knows what works. Her signature backstage and red carpet tips and tricks have shaped her eponymous makeup and skin care line, which debuted in 2013 and became an instant international sensation.”
I first learned about Charlotte Tilbury when it rolled out at Nordstrom Fashion Valley in San Diego, probably in 2013 or 2014. I got a makeover with one of the Iconic 10 Looks. Charlotte’s idea to launch this brand with these sets really caught my attention, especially with catchy names such as The Golden Goddess Look Set, The Sophisticate Look Set, The Bombshell Look Set, etc. But even after the beautiful makeover, the $230 price tag was a bit steep for me, considering 1) I was a broke college student, and 2) the look I got was mostly an evening and party look.
However, I have been following this brand closely since its beginning and seeing it featured at many Sephora stores makes me applaud this brand for its winning concept. I’ve added Charlotte Tilbury staples to my beauty regimen, so without further ado, I want to share with you my top picks!
This primer gives your complexion an instant pick me up and effortlessly dewy look. You can use it under or over your foundation. It has a slight golden shimmer, so for days I want an extra glow on my face, I mix it into my foundation for a gorgeous shimmer with a dose of hydration. Best for winter and/or dry skin. Use this primer if you like a dewy finish rather than a matte finish.
I swear by this highlight and bronze duo, especially when I travel as I don’t have to bring too many compacts with me. I go for the fair/medium contour duo as the shades look so natural on my skin. The pigments are beautiful, and the shimmer from the powders give a satin, glowing finish. The bronzer is honestly a very forgiving, bendable, and buildable bronzer. The highlight is great for daily use; just make sure to have a nice brush or sponge to apply the product.
This is my favorite nude pink lip liner! I absolutely swear by it. Pair it with Charlotte’s Bitch Perfect or Pillow Talk lipsticks, and you’ll be rocking the perfect nude pink lip! When it comes to lining your lips, choose a shade that is slightly darker than the actually lip color. This Charlotte Tilbury rich, creamy lip liner gives you a fuller pout and long wear time. Highly recommend as one of my everyday go-to’s!
Great moisturizer for dry skin. Since La Mer is my favorite moisturizing crème (which I usually use in my evening regimen), I use this product for my neck and body when I have extra dry areas, and as a day cream on my face. I recommend using this cream under your primer and foundation to achieve flawless skin.
This gloss goes on perfectly with Charlotte’s lipsticks. I would recommend buying her lip products as a set rather than use them on their own. I love that the gloss give you a high shine but keeps your lips looking plump and juicy without it being too sticky.
One of my favorite lipsticks due to the satin, soft finish. All the shades are unique and flattering. This color is versatile for all seasons, and the color comes through completely opaque in one swipe. I also love that the lipstick has quite a bit of staying power and fades to a pretty stain.
This is a buildable and hydrating formula. With a hint of mauve pink, this lipstick gives me the perfect nude pink lip for both day and night. However, to maximize this lipstick, I highly recommend using a gloss over it. As most matte lipsticks have a drying effect, this lipstick just looks better with a pop of gloss and the lip cheat lip liner.
There you have it: my favorites from Charlotte Tilbury!
