Beauty pick of the week: Charlotte Tilbury contour wand

5th July, 2018

Contouring can seem like a daunting prospect at times but this Charlotte Tilbury wonder product makes it so much easier.

Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand, $60

Whilst I don’t do Kim Kardashian scale contouring because hey, she has professionals helping her achieve that, I do like to do it myself from time to time. If I’ve got a work event or occasion to go to then I like to amp up my makeup a bit more for a stronger, more impactful look.

The best thing about this wand is that it’s really easy to apply and blend, and if you don’t get both of those things right it can make contouring go very awry… Luckily though, the cushion applicator dispenses just the right amount of product and makes it easier to target specific spots on my face.

I team this product with the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand and the overall effect is a more sculpted finish, with that lit-from-within glow.

If you’ve been wanting to try contouring yourself but were afraid to because it seemed to complicated then this is a great place to start. It’s seriously super easy to use and I consistently get a great result every time.

My beauty pick of the week: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand

21st June, 2018

Like its name says this gorgeous highlighting wand achieves the ultimate, I-could-walk-down-the-red-carpet-right-now glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, $60

I’ve sat in more makeup chairs than I can remember and the one thing I love about it is every time I walk away I have the most amazing glow. If I could permanently have someone doing my makeup everyday I’d totally be on board with it but alas it’s me doing it most days so I need products that are quick and easy to use. So, how to achieve a glowy skin effect without a million and one products? Well, I have become a huge fan of the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand for that very reason.

I like using highlighters to accentuate my features however I’ve never been able to find one that’s just the right consistency. This liquid highlighter is great as it’s easy to apply and blend (it comes with a sponge applicator at the tip) and is really easy to work into the skin. I don’t end up looking streaky or too overdone and achieves just the right kind of luminosity.

If you’ve been on the hunt for a highlighter that delivers just the right level of sparkle without looking like you had a run in with a glitter pen then definitely give this wand a go. I am amassing quite the collection of Charlotte Tilbury products because they’re so easy to use and the finish is always spot on and this product is no different.

My beauty pick of the week: Charlotte Tilbury ‘The Dolce Vita’ eyeshadow palette

24th May, 2018

Charlotte Tilbury can really do no wrong. This eyeshadow palette provides a flush of colour for the eyes that’s punchy, yet natural and I’m officially obsessed.

Charlotte Tilbury ‘The Dolce Vita’ eyeshadow quad, $80

Eyeshadow palettes can sometimes be a tricky thing as you’re not always guaranteed to love all the colours. I’ve had instances where I’ve played favourites with the colours only to have one that goes unused. However I’m pleased to report that there’s no such issue with this little beauty.

As with most of the Charlotte Tilbury range the colours, the finish and the wearability of this palette is spot on. The copper, bronze and champagne shades all work together to create a beautiful warm, sun-kissed effect whilst still looking natural. I hate looking too overdone and I’ve found all the hues in this quad work harmoniously together to create the perfect finish.

Whilst providing the ideal flush of colour on my eyes, I’ve found that the colour in this eyeshadow quad has staying power. I can wear this all day and it still has the same intensity as when I first walked out the door. It’s perfect for those times when I just want to look a little more polished as I’m going to an event or an important meeting during the day, with it looking too over the top. I highly recommend this for those wanting a product that’s easy to apply but delivers a flattering finish with staying power.

17th February, 2018

In need of a beauty fix? Then you’re in luck because there are some amazing buys worth checking out this week. I don’t know about you but I think there’s just something about popping on a new lipstick shade or cracking open a gorgeous new makeup palette for the first time that offers up quite the thrill. Here are some buys that will have any beauty fan wanting to add to cart.

 

Bobbi Brown 5-in-1 Essential Face Palette

If you travel a lot or just can’t be bothered having to deal with multiple products then this will solve all your dilemmas. With everything from concealer, to bronzer to foundation in the one palette you’ll always look impeccable when you’re on the go—and significantly lighter in cosmetics too.

Dior Addict Lip Glow

If you can never find the right lipstick shade this is one way to guarantee the perfect colour. This is reacts to the natural chemistry of your lips giving you a custom hue that’s uniquely suited to you.

Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Eye Palette

It’s hard to find a quad palette that has just the right shades (there’s often always a random colour that you’re not quite sure what to do with) but these are all gorgeous and quite wearable.

Kitsch Luxe Shower Cap

Oh the cuteness! Shower caps are often a necessity rather than an accessory but this solves that problem. If you’re not a fan of polka dots this range also comes in stripes and plain black.

Tom Ford Bronzing Powder

For a flush of “I just came back from an exotic tropical holiday” colour Tom Ford is your man. This bronzing powder not only gives great colour, the packaging is unbelievably chic. You’ll be looking for excuses to pull this one out for touch ups.
