I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed by Charlotte Tilbury, I just really really like it. Maddey and I could open our own CT store.. in rural Northumberland… I’m sure people would come.
I have re-created one of Charlottes signature looks, The Rebel. If you tick these boxes, you should try it. Are you Bold? CHECK. Are you Brave? CHECK- but don’t turn off the lights. Or if you like to be daring and your thinking it’s getting a bit cold to get my boobs out, this look is just as daring.. and the boys will still wink a you..
sadly. If this look was a girl, she probably drives a fiat 500 but not a white one, a black one, maybe with a cool colour inside. Classic with an edge.
In the words of Charlotte ‘Ok Darlings, lets get started’.
- Brow lift (its either called Cara D or supermodel), brush them up, colour them in. Just like a super cool art student.
- Your going to think I’m crazy but I do my Eyeliner first. Now hear me out.. If you get your eyeliner perfect now and you will be left with a faded line to follow at the end. No more throwing your eyeliner at the mirror and refusing to go out.
- Cover the lid with the Eyes to mesmerise Cleopatra, this gives you a great base to work on top of.
It’s now time for the eye shadow! The best part.
- Take your enhance shade and blend it across the entire lid. Open your eye and blend up and out (towards the end of the eyebrow).
- Blend the smoke shade into the socket and outer corner.
- Its glitter time. With your finger place the pop shade all over the eyeshadow. If you like it really really glittery… like me, add more of the pop shade with a flat brush. Pressing it onto the lid. For more depth mix the prime shade with the pop shade.
- Using the Rock ‘n’ Kohl pencil, trace over your original eyeliner (only do the flick and about 1/3 of the eye), I go back with the smoke shade on top, making it more ‘smudgy’.
- Run the enhance shade underneath the eye
- Curl you lashes, Mascara, then lashes.
- With a big fluffy brush, blend the edges once more.
Remove any fall down and move on to the dreamy base.
- Prep the skin with Wonderglow primer
- Magic foundation (shade 2 for me). All over, I start in the middle section of your face and work out. (I like my skin to look like skin rather than leather). Where I need more coverage, I ‘bounce the brush’ to leave more product in that area.
- The retoucher (shade 1), under my eyes. I don’t do the ‘triangle’ that goes from under your eye to the side of your mouth. why do that..seriously you end up looking like Casper?! I just use as much as I need. If I have any blemishes, I would also cover them… obviously.
- Hollywood contour (light to medium), on the hollows of my cheeks…follow the hollow.. On top of that the Filmstar Bronze and Glow (light to medium).
- A bit of blush to make the look pop!
I always go for this combo, Pillow Talk and Penelope Pink, this combo is as legendary as a Tango IceBlast and popcorn at the pictures. Funny enough its probably the same price.
- Line you lips with Pillow talk
- Lipstick time: Penelope Pink
Bish, Bash, Bosh.
I just love this look. L. O. V. E. Imagine this look for those christmas parties; a little black dress, a sparkly bag in one hand and a bottle of Prosecco in the other. You’ll be getting all the attention!
I would recommend CT products. Its not cheap. However, I feel that they are worth the money. You could always sell a kidney to give you some extra cash. I could not live without:
- Magic foundation. £30.00 Great for day or night, very build-able to create a flawless finish
- Filmstar Bronze and Glow. £49.00. Only £49.00 to look like a VS angel…bargain.
- Lipsticks: Penelope Pink and Pillow Talk £24.00(lipstick) £16.00 (liner), the perfect nude lipstick combo.
- Brow Lift. £22.50. don’t ask me why, I just like it!
I wonder what will be the next purchase, maybe another eyeshadow palette or a new lipstick. I really should buy a new foundation, I’m on that scrapping stage.. i know, I’m gross. But sadly, I will have to wait until my next pay check, I’ve already spent this weeks. well done ZARA, my new jumpers are pretty though…
Other products I used:
- Eyes to mesmerise, Cleopatra, £22.00
- The Rebel eyeshadow palette, £39.00
- Rock ‘n’ Kohl pencil, Barbarella Brown, £19.00
- Full Fat lashes mascara, £23.00
