British celebrity makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, is a veteran in the makeup artistry world. She’s been behind cover shoots for nearly every prominent fashion magazine imaginable, and worked with A-listers such as Kate Moss, Amal Clooney, Natalie Portman and more. During her storied career, she was once a creative consultant for a handful of luxury makeup brands, earning her fame and a name synonymous with stellar makeup.
When she created her own beauty label, Tilbury believed makeup should inspire confidence, and be easy to choose, use and gift. This principle has led to her creating a pared down line that focuses on the basics, and does them extremely well.
Though this label may not be available in Singapore just yet, it is easily purchasable online. If you’ve spotted her beautiful rose gold packaging on social media, or ever wondered what Charlotte Tilbury products are the best to try out, here are our 5 picks.
This bronzer and highlighter duo has become a cult favourite thanks to its satin-smooth formulation. The contour shade is warm-toned enough to liven up the skin, but isn’t so terracotta to the point where it doesn’t sculpt the face too. The highlighter is a light champagne gold, giving the skin just enough luminosity without veering into wet-look territory.
The Hot Lips formula gives your lips a soft matte finish. It is packed with oils, triglycerides and waxes to ensure the lipstick glides on smoothly, and is comfortable to wear. When the Kim K W shade debuted, it became an instant hit. The muted, pinkish hue became everyone’s favourite daily nude lip.
A facial mask not soaked in some nourishing solution seems ridiculous, but this one oddly works. Seeking inspiration from Korean skincare technology, Charlotte Tilbury’s version of the dry mask comes packed with vitamins and enriching fruit oils to rejuvenate the complexion. Because it’s not a wet mask, it doesn’t breed bacteria, allowing you to use each piece three times.
This is a setting powder that’ll change your life. It is an extremely fine, silky powder that will never cling to dry patches or cake up your makeup. It’s also infused with rose wax and almond oil to prevent the powder from drying out your face further, or separating when applied on top of oily skin.
Packed with finely crushed pearls, these blushes are the perfect powders to give your cheeks a dewy, fresh glow. First Love is a subtle peach and coral combination that warms up the complexion, perfect to pair with the heaviest of smokey eyes to the most basic “no makeup” makeup days. These blushers come in 10 shades, perhaps the widest shade range in Tilbury’s entire line.
