CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CHARLOTTE TILBURY
1. Hollywood Flawless Filter, £34
Best For: Dewy, Luminous Skin
Shades Available: 12
How To Use Them: Dubbed by Charlotte Tilbury as ‘celebrity skin filter in a bottle,’ this award-winning formula isn’t a foundation or coverage product. Instead, think of it as a unique primer and highlighter hybrid with a silky dry down. Porcelain flower extract (which is rich in antioxidants) works to brighten skin, while the mega-watt glow smooths pores and catches the light beautifully. Use it as you would a primer, a base or a highlighter, or mix it with your foundation for an intense hit of radiance. Now available in new, updated shades.
2. Charlotte's Jewel Pots, £24
Best For: A Fool-Proof Smokey Eye
Shades Available: 2
How To Use Them: Silky-smooth and easy to use, these creamy eyeshadows can be applied as a single layer for a sheer wash of colour, or built up for more of a 3D finish. A glow-y alternative to traditional a smokey eye, sweep the formula on with your fingers or a damp BeautyBlender for more intensity. “Try using the shimmering, metallic tones along the upper and lower lash line – not just all over the lid,” advises make-up artist Sofia Tilbury. “You can dab a little at the inner corners of the eyes, too. It instantly creates the look of a wider, brighter eye.”
3. Hyaluronic Happikiss, £25
Best For: Glossy, Hydrating Colour
Shades Available: 8
How To Use Them: We’re all after a low-maintenance alternative to lipstick these days. Cue Charlotte Tilbury’s new balms, which are full of moisture, and a glossy – not sticky – dry down that really goes the distance. Offering the same pigment as a lipstick, but without the drying effect, the colour payoff is impressive, as is the flattering shade range. Apply directly to the lips for a sheer wash of colour, or layer them on top of your existing favourites for a more intense finish. You’ll want every colour.
4. Hollywood Flawless Eye Filter, £42
Best For: Wider, Brighter-Looking Eyes
Shades Available: 2 Palettes
How To Use Them: Inspired by social media filters that help create the illusion of brighter-looking eyes, these palettes contain a flattering mix of shimmer and matte shades to create a number of suits-all looks. They’re easy to use, too, with each shade categorised as ‘prime,’ ‘enhance,’ ‘smoke,’ and ‘pop,’ helping you understand the right order for seamless application.
“Use these quads to emphasise and amplify the look of your eye colour,” adds Sofia. “The bronze, gold tones will work really well with all eye colours – especially browns and blues, while the pink, rose-gold shadows will enhance green or hazel eyes. To make the pigments stand out, use a touch of foundation on the eyelids first. This will prime and neutralise any uneven colour, so that when you do apply eyeshadow, it’s rich and even in tone. This simple trick will prevent shadows from creasing, too.”
5. Luna New Year Lipstick, £28
Best For: Long-Lasting Colour & A Velvety Finish
Shades Available: 3
How To Use Them: These new, on-trend lipsticks are matte, but with a twist. Created with oils and wax, they’re satisfyingly hydrating, while still providing the long-wear finish we all crave. They’re rich in pigment, too, with a slight sheen that provides a fuller-looking effect. It’s the velvet texture that really stands out – apply it either with a brush, or push the colour into your lip with your ring finger. You’ll see how the formula melts in to provides a soft-focus finish that wears well throughout the day.
