Most Wednesday afternoons I’m sat doing uni work wishing I was doing something a lot more exciting. Well, luckily today that happened to be the case as I was very kindly invited by Charlotte Tilbury for a rather exciting makeover!
I have never had my makeup done before and the lovely and talented Kelly Mitchell worked her magic on my face. She introduced me to the 10 signature looks designed by Charlotte Tilbury all designed to compliment our faces and all can be worn by anyone and everyone. There is a huge range, everything from ‘The Golden Goddess’ to ‘The Vintage Vamp’; there’s something for everyone. I was asked to pick a look and I was slightly overwhelmed with choice! Kelly recommended me a look called ‘The Dolce Vita’ but toned it down as I was after a more subtle version of it.
Kelly is a fantastic artist and talked me through every step of the process which was great for me as I love to learn new techniques for applying makeup. One of my favourite products she used was the Light Wonder foundation – this made a flawless base which I so struggle to get at home. She also used the Filmstar Bronze & Glow which I have been dying to try for ages!
The look created on my face is a beautiful mix of browns and bronze tones, which Kelly said is great for my green eyes. From what I can remember, this is a list of all the products used on me:
- Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita
- Full Fat Lashes – Glossy Black
- Cheek to Chic – Ecstasy
- Lip Cheap – Pillowtalk
- K.I.S.S.I.N.G – Penelope pink
- Lip Lustre – Seduction
- Light Wonder (foundation)
- The Retoucher – Concealer
- Filmstar Bronze & Glow
- Rock n Kohl – Barbarella Brown
- Legendary Brows
- Charlotte’s Magic Cream
You can buy the entire look in a neat little package here: http://www.charlottetilbury.com/uk/the-dolce-vita-gift-box.html a long with all of the other 10 signature looks!
As if the makeup wasn’t enough, they ever so kindly gifted me with the goody bag of all time. I was actually shocked when this was handed to me…I couldn’t believe it. Inside the bag was a fantastic bundle, including the ‘Scent of a Dream’ 30ml, Magic Eye Rescue 15ml, Goddess skin clay mask 75ml and the Magic Night Cream 50ml. I have yet to actually use these as I’ve pretty much just got through the front door – however I can tell you that the perfume is gorgeous!
To the tilbury team, I can’t actually thank you enough. You have been so generous and treated me so fantastically. I appreciate the time you took out to make my day that extra bit special. Also, thank you for supporting a small blogger like myself, I don’t have millions of followers which usually puts brands off wanting to be associate themselves with me! Kelly; you are wonderfully talented and a lovely lady! I’ll be sure to come back and visit for your advice when I have the money!
