As a self confessed make up addict, there is nothing I like more than applying great make up leisurely. However, there are moments when time just does not allow and we need to get out of the house super fast looking super glam. Below is one of the looks I have been wearing a lot lately, it is very pretty and quick and easy to apply.
Using a few new products I recently purchased, the look I have created below creates and effortless glam. Last minute nights out, work events and family events when I just don’t have the time to blend my eyeshadow for hours and need to be out of the house sharpish, have all benefited from this look.
Charlotte Tilbury Bigger Brighter Eyes Filter Quad –
Purchased at the very beginning of May when this was launched, this palette is super glamourous and has everything you need to create a quick, easy and perfectly put together look. Charlotte Tilbury make up is always super glamourous and this quad is a great addition to my collection. Housed in a beautiful compact with a great sized mirror this is a great day to night palette that exaggerates the eyes and makes them the stand out feature on your face. Featuring an Ivory Cream, Rose Gold, Red Brown and Transparent Sparkle shade, it cleverly creates the illusion of bigger wider eyes. For me, I already have big eyes but I just adore the shades of this palette on my blue/green eyes.
I use all the four colours in the palette to prime, enlarge, define and add a pop of colour and find the shadows blend beautifully without any fallout or creasing, and last all day and night. If you are looking for a “Look in a palette” this is wonderful and works on all skin tones.
Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumising Mascara in Blacquer –
Blended with Vitamins B5 and C plus essential oils, this mascara feels lovely and fluid on the lashes without clumping and does not dry and drop onto the cheeks like so many others. It is a high end mascara, but it looks beautiful classy on the lashes and adds that touch of glamour without looking over the top.
I adore this because it gives me the blackest, thickest looking lashes without making them look false, clumped together or heavy. It has a wonderful brush which grabs every lash coating it in just the right amount of product and very sleek, classy packaging. When I wear this mascara it adds that hint of a curl, lots of volume and lasts all day.
One of my absolute favourite lip liners in the world ever (don’t judge the photo, its well loved), has to be pillow talk from Charlotte Tilbury. It is the perfect Nude shade that can be matched up with a host of lip colours. Lip Liner is an absolutely essential item within your lipstick wardrobe. not only will it prevent your lipstick from bleeding, but it can create a more fuller, fluid looking lip shape and really defines the lips making them look smoother an younger and lipstick just sits so much better within it.
This can also be used to fill in the lips as a base for your preferred lip colour too, which I often do as it grabs on to lip colour more, making it longer lasting. I love this shade because it is so super flattering. Everyone needs this shade in their make up bag, it is just the perfect pink nude and looks so pretty. I highly recommend this lip pencil as I do the next product…..
As you can see from the used up bullet ( which I am ashamed to show you) this is a very, very loved lipstick. I just cannot stop wearing this shade right now. It is the perfect pink nude, that was created to match the iconic Lip Cheat pencil mentioned above. I just adore this shade because it is so flattering and makes my lips look big, healthy and smooth.
Although it is a matte it does not dry down crispy or so matte that you cannot rub your lips tighter. It has a wonderful feel to it thanks to the soothing Orchid and Lipstick Tree (yep, really) extracts in it which hydrate and nourish the lips. It also works wonderfully well with a gloss over the top. I now have many Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks as I am a huge fan, but this was the first shade and first product I ever bought from Charlotte Tilbury and it was because of this one product my love affair with the brand began. Be warned, it is very addictive.
As you can see from the look I have created above, these shades are all super flattering, especially on my 43 year old skin. I love to play with colour and make up and often change my look around, but I know this look is full proof when I need to be out and about fast. What do you think of these products on me?
