A few weeks ago, I was invited to Nordstrom at CF Toronto Eaton Centre to get my very own Tilbury Transformation with Charlotte Tilbury national lead makeup artist, and Charlotte’s right-hand gal, Kate Synnott. It was a dream come true! Kate was super sweet and gave me one of the best makeovers I’ve ever experienced. She even applied the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess skin clay face mask on my hands!!! The result was just, wow. I try to make time to do the mask on my face and hands at least once a week.
Kate pulled from Charlotte Tilbury’s Dreamy Look colour palette to give me a glam and glowing finish, with a stronger lip than I normally would wear. Typically I wear, as you all know, nude lipstick, (corpse nude lipstick). I guess with my dark hair I forgot that purple-y shades also look really nice on me. I’ve already worn Secret Salma (yes, actually created in collaboration with Salma Hayek), a few times since my makeover. It’s perfect for an all-black outfit!
First, Kate moisturized my face giving me a healthy glow using Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream – which I actually cannot live without. I know, it’s pretty steep, but it lasts such a long time. A little dab will do. And, Charlotte Tilbury came up with this cream herself when she would be doing beauty for fashion shows backstage. She would mix it up in her kitchen. It is one of those coveted beauty products that you only need to try once to fall madly in love with. I’ve never met a girl who wasn’t obsessed with Charlotte’s Magic Cream. (And the night cream is amazing, too, you just have to use like a pea-size amount and rub it in really well, as Kate taught me, because I know our instinct is to slather it on…. )
She even said to use it on your boobs and décolleté before you go to bed. Foreplay, anyone?
In terms of the face, you want to use Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow (another product I eat for dinner) and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. Bronze, highlight and blush how you would. What I love most about the Dreamy Look kit is the eyeshadow palette. When you use the 4 shades to prime, pop, shade and enhance, the results are amazing. Finish with a gorgeous cat eye using Charlotte Tilbury Bedroom Black eyeliner. I gotta master the technique of feathery lashes like Kate did. The mascara brush of Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Lashes helps a lot! I’m obsessed with this mascara (and I’ve only tried it once!)
Of course, I had to try to get the entire look at-home and do it all for the first time on Facebook Live. Cuz that’s how I roll. So, watch the video and let me know if you guys like the way I attempted to make The Dreamy Look my own. Are you going to try it? What’s your favourite Charlotte Tilbury product? Leave me a comment!
