The best Charlotte Tilbury beauty products to buy
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette by Pops
Packed with pigments, these eye shadows sparkle in one fell swoop. In the color of heavenly eyes, every shade follows suit, from delicious chocolate brown to warm undertones of peach and melted gold. For an elevated party look, make this your go-to quad.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
If you (like me) aren’t the type to have full contours but want a little definition on the cheeks, you can’t go wrong with this two-tone palette. This is a bronzer and highlighter in one, both filled with pearlescent pigments that make skin feel like bathing in speckled sunlight.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Tip
The best thing to note about CT’s lip liner that ranks it a foot above the rest is simple and clear: a creamy touch liner that packs a tangy color. Plus, its tip is half round and not quite thin, so you will end up with fuller lips that will make them look natural.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder
âFirst of all, a foundation that unifies my uneven skin tone without hiding its natural texture,â says Stylistsenior beauty writer Morgan Fargo. âI especially love that it leaves my face dewy and hydrated – a must have for the dry, dehydrated winter period we’re about to head into. Plus, the transparency of the formula means I can increase (or decrease) as needed.
Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Matte Bronzer
âUnless you think of myself as a bronzer connoisseur, know that I am in a deeply committed relationship with finding tan formulas that leave skin glowing (not sparkling) with a ‘holiday fresh’ feel,â says Stylistsenior beauty writer Morgan Fargo. “This matte bronzer is made with the distinctive Charlotte Tilbury blur effect, leaving healthy, even, diffusing heat to the skin and hyaluronic acid for (again) the needed hydration!”
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte Magic Lip Oil
There’s nothing better than knowing your lips are hydrated, but when they look hydrated and smooth, it’s even more satisfying. This lip oil contains a plethora of powerful moisturizers, including smoothing swertian leaf extract, alpine rose, and, of course, dry skin’s best friend, hyaluronic acid.
Charlotte Tilbury plays chic
âFinally, a blush that adds life and color to the cheek after foundation and tan,â says Stylistsenior beauty writer Morgan Fargo. âI always go for warm pinks and rosy browns because my skin is naturally olive and pearly colors can strike me as striking. CT’s Cheek to Chic in ‘Pillowtalk Intense’ is the happy medium to apply lightly over bronzer or wear alone for a flush reminiscent of a brisk walk.
