Gorgeous Glow With Charlotte Tilbury

It's been a significant amount of time since I've been over the moon, in love, with an entire makeup line. Trying new products daily, sure, there's plenty of beautiful products that I recommend. But as a whole, it's few and far in between that I can't get enough of every product in a line. That's why I've been itching to share this review of Charlotte Tilbury with you. Of the products I've been using, I wake up genuinely excited to use them all.

First, you guys, the packaging! It's extremely luxurious and has an "old Hollywood" glamour feel. 1920's girl in the know sort of aura. It certainly brings forth a desire to wear a feminine dress or at the very least, encourages me to take on my day with a confidence that I don't get from other makeup lines.

The Wonderglow Face Primer is something of dreams. There's only a handful of face primers that I recommend and only a few I'd say I can't live without and this is one of those! It's been released online at Sephora today and will be in stores tomorrow. I wear this both under and over my foundation, and the glow is phenomenal. Dewy and pretty, it's not over the top, just enough to make any woman feel like a classic beauty! Oh, and it's anti-aging by the way... just put some icing on that cake why dontcha.

To get this lip look I mixed two shades: Matte Revolution in Red Carpet &  K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect. If this combination were a person, it would be Jessica Lange or Emma Roberts. Hello new season of AHS. 

The Filmstar Bronze & Glow sculpt and highlight are perfect in my opinion. Bronzers frequently fall under one of two categories for me: "I'm scared to use this because I don't want to look dirty." or "Am I even contorted at all?" Filmstar falls somewhere in the middle and allows you the room to sculpt your facial framework in a way that feels artistic. The packaging immediately made me think of an old cigarette case, and to my pleasure, I later found out that it indeed was the inspiration for this specific product.

These shadow shades from her Luxury Eyeshadow Palette are the most beautiful tones to translate into the Autumn season. Create one look with them all or separate daytime and evening looks. They're both pigmented and transcendent without too much shake or being overly shimmery. I'm quite happy with their decision to do these palettes in four shade options. Waste not, want not. 

 

 

Thank you for all the sweet messages, recommendations, and get well soons. I woke this morning feeling much improved from yesterday. Hopefully it’s the Vit C talking and not the coffee giving me a temporary boost of energy. I’m headed on a Hurricane run this morning. Florence and her machines of rain, wind, and possibly floods are coming. She’s likely to be a a tropical storm when she hits here. Usually that doesn’t bring too much concern as I’m from Florida BUT I am concerned about power outage as that sometimes takes a lot longer to get fixed then one might assume. Coastal areas will be top priority and rightfully so. Hope you all have a great day and I’m praying for everyone over on the coast as Florence approaches!
