I had myself a Tilbury Transformation as part of the Selfridges Beauty Project. I went for the Sophisticate look as I felt it was very flattering, but slightly out of my comfort zone as it is quite heavy eye makeup. A link to all the information you could need, and Charlotte herself doing a tutorial on the look is below.
Let’s talk products. If I had an infinite amount of money (some of the ladies at the event certainly did) I would have every single item from the range, twice over. All of the products have been carefully considered and produced. The powders are butter soft with lots of emollients in to keep them that way, the foundations are brilliant shades, wonder glow will made the most ragged skin look radiant, and I have waxed lyrical about the brow pencils in a previous post. The product I decided to take home: film star bronze and glow (http://www.charlottetilbury.com/filmstar-bronze-and-glow.html)
It is a beaut product, the bronzer isn’t shimmery, or orange-y toned so is perfect for sculpting the facial framework of even the fairest of complexions. The highlighter is like a real-life filter. Absolutely gorgeous. I don’t think there are enough adjectives to describe how happy I am with my purchase!
Some other stand-out products are the magic cream, brow pencils, wonder glow and the brushes:
Charlotte’s Magic Cream is just that, absolute magic. Charlotte will never reveal the full list of ingredients, but it does have SPF 15, BioNymph Peptide Complex, anti-UVA filter, Sodium Hyaluronate, wild Pansy extract, rose hip oil, camellia oil, Vitamin E, Damask rose water, Aloe Vera, extracts of Frangipani and a little bit of top secret magic! It is a brilliant cream and made my skin feel amazingly hydrated and plumped.
The wonder glow “is powered by a breakthrough Fluorescent Core Light Diffuser that cleverly steals UV light from its surroundings and re-emits it as skin luminosity to disguise and transform drab, sleep-deprived skin. WONDERGLOW is a visionary new anti-age hybrid.” It is a firm favourite of Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez and is fully understandable once you have seen the difference it makes to your skin.
The brushes are all hand pulled in Europe with wooden handles designed to not roll off your vanity. The brushes are well worth the investment and make application easy for even a makeup novice. Absolute standouts for me are the powder and sculpt brush, blusher brush, eye smudger brush and eye blender brush.
Additional links are below, as with all of Charlotte’s products, she has included tutorials on each product page.
