Today we’re going to be using all at Charlotte Tilbury products! I placed an order last week and got a couple of new products one of them being the new Bejeweled Eyes to Hypnotise Eyeshadow Palette. We’re also going to be using a cream blush that I picked off of her website the Lip and Cheek Glow in the shade of “Pillow Talk.” I also picked up this lip gloss in “Pillow Talk” and I’m not sure if this is just new packaging or if it’s a new product. There are a couple things that I’ll have to be using other products for like brows but I have a full I have a pretty good collection here of Charlotte Tilbury so we are going to do a let’s just call this a full Charlotte Tilbury tutorial!
The foundation I’m going to be using today is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. This one I find offers really great coverage and has more of a natural look to it. If I had to categorize this foundation it in like really natural or more coverage I would put it in the “more coverage” category. It has more of a natural or velvety finish. It also has an SPF 15 and I am the shade “Five Medium.” I would say it has good medium coverage a more natural to medium coverage. I do feel like it’s building up to give me a little more coverage. It looks really nice and natural though and this is a good shade for me. I used a solid pump and I was able to apply that all over my face without it feeling or looking heavy.
For concealer, I’m going to use the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Concealer. This is one of my favorite concealers. I really like this concealer because it’s a very natural looking concealer. The only complaint I have is this packaging I am not a fan of this packaging. It is impossible not impossible, but it’s not easy to open or close and it’s kind of messy but I’m going to apply this underneath the eyes. This is a great concealer on the days that you’re wearing a more natural foundation or maybe the days that you’re not wearing any foundation and you just want a concealer that you can blend under the eyes and into the skin naturally. I’m going to use the BK beauty 108 brush to blend in. I use the shade “Fair.” I like my concealer to be slightly lighter to give me that brightness under the eye. If you have really dark under eye area you want to avoid going with a concealer that’s lighter like this because it’s not really going to conceal that darkness, it’s almost going to make the area look like there’s a gray tint or cast over it. It’s kind of like having a really dark bruise and then wearing like light colored or white pantyhose, you’re not really fooling anybody you know you’re gonna still see that darkness coming through. So you do need to use a concealer that is as dark as your skin or something that has a peach tone to it. I actually have her color corrector here, which is nice, it’s not really orangey you can find one that has more orange to it that’ll really pencil out darkness and then you can put a lighter concealer on top but I think a lot of mistake a common mistake that people make is they have really dark under eyes so they grab something really light to try and conceal it that will not conceal it you need something that is you know your skin tone or an orange color corrector first, then you can go add and add brightness.
Next we’re going to use the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Powder and I have the shade “Fair.” I’m just going to be real light I always start in the nose that’s where I tend to get the oiliest and then I’ll go under the eyes. One thing you want to be careful of if you do set under the eyes like I do with powder is that you don’t want to take your brush straight from the powder product directly under your eye because the first place you put your brush and you know in the compact, you’re going to have the most product on it at that moment. If you go directly under the eye that means you’re applying the most powder underneath and because that area is so delicate and thin and we tend to have fine lines or texture they’re putting too much powder product is just going to make that area look drier and cakey and accentuate all that texture. So the key is to go in first around the nose or other areas of the face. Then once you’ve gotten most of the product off the brush then go back and set under the eyes. That is a little trick for you if you have tried to use powder but you find that it just looks too dry and it might be that you’re going in you know first thing after you pick it up with.
Next we’re going to go in and bronze the skin and I’m going to use the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Matte Bronzer. I have the shade to “Medium.” I’m just going to brush this into the hairline and pull it down. I really like this bronzer it’s very silky and texture. It kind of reminds me of her pressed airbrush powders. It’s very, very silky so it blends really nice and easily. It doesn’t skip or look patchy. It just looks real silky and smooth. I always like to add bronzer here in the hairline, kind of work it into the hairline, especially when you’re working with like a real warm bronzer like this. It just gives that really beautiful like. I like how it just highlights the center of the face and the areas that you skipped bronzer. And then I’m just gonna run a little bit of it across my nose and then my jawline.
Next we’re going to try this product that I’m really excited to try I have refrained from testing this since I got this last week. So I’m really excited to try this with you guys for the first time. It’s the Charlotte Tilbury Lip and Cheek Glow in “Pillow Talk.” I use my BK Beauty 108 Brush and the texture feels a little tacky, but it’s very sheer, it actually blends out really beautifully and naturally and I love the color. When I opened it, the color looks much darker to me than I expected it to look, I expect it to look a little prettier than it does, it actually kind of looks more like a berry tone. But on the skin, it’s like the perfect pink. It’s really beautiful. I wouldn’t really describe it as a peachy pink. It’s definitely kind of more like a berry pink, but it’s a 10th of what you see in here. This is way darker than it actually translates on the skin. So if you want more color, you can certainly build it. The great thing about cream blush is or liquid blush is if you apply too much you kind of just press press press and it blends it out and sheers it out really, really nicely. It’s kind of foolproof.
Next we are going to go in with our eye primer and for that I do not have Charlotte Tilbury so we’re going to use the Alter Ego Eyeshadow Base. I’ve really been enjoying this primer I like that it has a little applicator that makes it really easy to apply. And I like that it has a slight tint to brighten the lid but it sheers out to be pretty translucent on the eyelid so it’s not going to alter the color of your eyeshadow. It’s really just going to enhance it This is probably my favorite eyeshadow primer at the moment. very silky and it blends out and sheers out really easily.
I am so excited to play with this palette! As always the packaging is so beautiful, but it is very, very prone to finger prints. You get four different color stories here each with each with a trio of shades. I see a couple of transition shades in here but I don’t really see a great brow highlight for me. So we will go and use a separate product for the brow highlight shortly but I’m going to go ahead and start in my crease with a matte shade and we are just going to kind of work that in the outer corner and then blend inward. The great thing about Charlotte Tilbury shadows is they have a lot of pigment. So you don’t really need to dig your brush in very long or put much pressure and you’re gonna get a lot of color payoff. With that said, you want to apply this same little technique that we were talking about with powder under the eyes. And that is that the first place you put your brush is where the most color is going to come off. So if you pick up a crease color, and you start here, you’re going to have a lot of color here in the inner corner, chances are we most of the time we want it here on the outer corner. So that’s where I would recommend placing your brush first and then working it inward to blend out that color. I’m just going to continue to kind of build and I’m using a BK Beauty 201 Brush which is a pretty large blending brush. It’s a little large for my eye shape. So it’s going to do a great job of like blending and diffusing color but if I want a more targeted application or I want to pinpoint where that color goes, I would want to use a smaller brush. But this is good for laying down that first transition shade. This color is really warm, it almost translates kind of orangey on me. So the quality of the shadows are really great. I feel like they’re very consistent with her other palettes and formulas, you get a lot of pigment and they’re easy to blend.
Next, we’re going to go in and create a little more definition on the outer corner. So I’m going to use the darker brown shade the darker matte brown shade in the palette, this one right here. And I’m going to actually start with a smaller brush to kind of hack it on the outer corner. I’m going to use the BK Beauty 203 Brush. It’s just a good basic shader brush. It’s just a brown but for some reason it’s so beautiful. Okay, so I’m using this brush to get that deposit of color there. Then I’m going to go back with a BK Beauty 202 Brush which is a tapered blending brush and we’re going to put it right on top and just kind of blend it out a little make things a little softer. That’s a really pretty rich brown. That’s going to kind of tone down this orange we have going on over here. When you were using a dense brush to apply, you don’t really need to worry about it looking you know blended or pretty and kind of look like a hot mess like it does now but then you’re going to go back in with that blending brush and that’s going to do all the work for you.
Next, we’re going to go in and we are going to apply a shimmery brighter shade in the on the center of the lid. This really pretty kind of honey shimmery shade. We’re going to pack that on the center of the lid and then we’re going to go into the inner corner and use a lighter one. But we’re going to pack that pick up a brush on its side. Really just lay that right there in the center of the lid. I’m trying not to get it all the way to the inner corner. Again. I want to leave that space for another shade. This is pretty like a very, very light copper. Not like a real orangey copper. A very light copper shade like honey. When you’re working with shades that are real shimmery like this and also shades that are dark and matte, you want there to be some separation, right, but you also want them to look kind of blended together. But what you want to avoid is getting that shimmery shade on top of the matte. If anything, take the matte and blend it on top of the shimmer. But taking the shimmer and trying to blend it over the matte, it’s just going to muddy down that matte. So my tip is always to take the matte shade and use that to blend into the two. Finally, we’re going to go in and do the inner corner and I’m going to use the lightest kind of pearlescent pink here. It’s a really soft light shade, but it’s definitely got some pink flecks to it. I’m also going to go back and I’m going to take my blending brush, I’m gonna take that first shade that roll kind of like orangey Brown, and I’m going to softly softly blend that up here.
I’m going to add liner to the top. I’m using actually a new product from Wet N Wild, the Breakup Proof Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. This is such a great liquid liner. It’s so rich and opaque. You just do one line and it’s rich black, you don’t have to layer it at all. I like the tip of it. It’s real flexible, so it’s really easy to control and apply. Okay, I’m going to dig into a purple shimmery shade and we’re going to run that on the lower lash line.
For lips I’m going to line the lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Pencil. It is just like my natural lip color. And then we’re going to apply the Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in “Dance Floor Princess.” This is one of my favorite colors. It’s such a nice soft nude rosy pink. Then I’m going to top it off with this new lip gloss I got this is the Pillow Talk Lip Gloss. Okay, I love this gloss, it just gives a real wet super high gloss look to the lip doesn’t change the color that you guys see on my hand here. So you can see very sheer, just kind of like a 10th of pink. And really, really fine shimmer to it. It feels very lightweight, it doesn’t feel sticky, or tacky or thick.
To recap you on the new products that I tried today, the palette is the quality is great. If you are familiar with Charlotte Tilbury formulas and you like them you won’t be disappointed in the formulas of this. Again, I think it just comes down to a preference on the shades I do think that they offer a beautiful selection of shades here but kind of knowing what my personal preference is and what I tend to lean towards. I know that normally I’m probably not going to reach too much here in the center. So this wouldn’t have been a palette that I would have picked up again if I hadn’t been doing YouTube and I didn’t want to kind of just cover this in a video for you guys. But as far as the quality formula, I mean it’s it’s pretty top notch. So that’s my thoughts on the palette. My thoughts on the lip gloss is I love it if you like a real shear, super glossy, really fine shimmer gloss that feels lightweight on the lips. This is great. It’s a great Lip topper. It’s not going to offer a lot of color though. So if you are someone that likes more pigment in your lip glosses that likes maybe like to skip lipstick and apply one product and have, you know rich pigment and shine, you’re not going to get it from this, if you like very sheer pigment and you just want a shiny lip, this is great. Or if you want something to top on top of lipstick like I did today, this is great. The formula feels fantastic. I really can’t think of a formula that I like better. There are formulas that I like as much like the Milani Keep It Full. This is really great. It’s not sticky, it’s not thick, doesn’t feel heavy on the lips. And I really like the shade It’s beautiful. Then the blush, I really like this blush, I love the color of it. I love how it gives a soft glow to the cheeks. Very subtle, it’s very easy to blend out. I do think you can build it to get more color from it or you can share it out to get something really natural. It is a product that you can wear, you know without Foundation, so you don’t need to have a full face of makeup on. If you just want to throw this on your cheeks one day and a little tinted moisturizer this will be perfect. The texture of it does feel a little tackier than other cream blushes or liquid blushes. So that’s one thing to think about. If you’re real sensitive to texture or real particular about texture, it does feel a little stickier. This foundation is so beautiful. I remember really really liking it when I first picked it up and used it I remember really liking it but then you buy all these other foundations and your skin changes and then you feel like your preference changes and I do remember feeling like this was a lot more coverage than it is and I actually shouldn’t even say coverage because I have just as much coverage as I need. I don’t want any more coverage than this. If you’ve picked up this palette or the blush, or any of the products that I use, let me know let me know what your three favorites!
