Charlotte Tilbury makeup line now available!

"beauty is not an exclusive club...there are no unattractive women, just some that don’t know the power of make-up."
~ Charlotte Tilbury ~

in case you missed the announcement, one of the world's best-known and fabulous makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, has launched her eponymous beauty range here in the US. if you're like me, this is exciting news!

with Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz, Sienna Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Gisele, Rihanna, Natalie Portman, Eva Mendes and more as clients, Charlotte is {understandably} in the top ranks of makeup artists working today. her work is everywhere from runways to print, and now that her makeup is more accessible, my beauty-loving self is giddy and cannot wait to get to know her products for myself.

after more than 20 years in the industry, the Charlotte Tilbury range includes skincare and cosmetics that have been inspired by the glamour of hollywood's classic beauty icons {think Marilyn, Grace and Elizabeth} as well as our modern day counterparts. one thing i love is that Charlotte has created 10 signature looks that will take the guesswork out of creating a certain look. you can buy everything you need together in complete "look" kits or individually to suit your personal style.

there are plenty of standout products in the range, but i wanted to share a few you may want to try first. this includes Charlotte’s Magic Cream Treat & Transform Moisturizer. used and perfected over the years backstage at shoots and shows, Charlotte calls this "a push-up bra" in a jar! the oil and antioxidant-rich formula promises to flood the skin with moisture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and transform a dull complexion into luminous, glowing skin.

Tilbury tip: Magic Cream can be used to fix makeup mishaps. just dip a Q-tip in to remove any dropped eyeshadow, fix a feline flick or tidy up mascara.

Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash beautifully merges an age-fighting elixir with a complexion-enhancing light diffuser to give your skin an instant "spotlight" effect, making you look lit from within. collagen boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients are fused with light-reflecting microspheres that fill in wrinkles, scattering light to blur away lines, and flood skin with luminosity.

Tilbury tip: Wonderglow works great underneath foundation, on its own for a relaxed, effortlessly dewy look, or on top of makeup throughout the day to give your skin an instant pick-me-up.

Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara in Glossy Black was created after Charlotte had been mixing up to 5 mascaras {!!} to get the look she wanted {curl, volume, separation, length and drama}. Full Fat ticks all those boxes to give lashes a full, fluttering false-lash effect.

Tilbury tip: always curl lashes before using mascara. it's like a push-up bra for the eyes. also, you need to layer mascara for full effect! use at least three coats and lift from the root to elongate and thicken.

there are so many products in the range {including brushes}, but i won't overwhelm you with it all. hopefully you'll seek it out ~ everything looks gorgeous! i love that Charlotte is a fan of push-up bras, glowing skin, lush lashes and glamour that brings confidence to a woman's life every day ~ she's definitely my kind of lady…


are you excited about the new Charlotte Tilbury line? i love mascara, so i am definitely curious to try hers and discover how its specially-designed laser cut brush will work. it boasts being able to pick up even the smallest of lashes for a larger than life flutter. Charlotte shares her tips and tricks in this video…

expect to see a lot of coverage regarding this popular brand in the coming days and weeks. there will be events coming up, and if you're near them you might be able to attend! until then, be sure to discover the entire collection here and leave me a comment ~ i'd love to know which products you're most curious to try first as well!
