Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer, £40
Best For: Preventing Dark Spots & Slackened Skin
Why We Love It: If you’re after a reliable primer that ticks several boxes in one, this is for you. Using hyaluronic acid, peptides and something called COLLALIFT18, its silky formula forms a protective shield around the skin, while boosting elasticity and smoothing any uneven tone. As for its priming benefits, it is thin in texture but gives skin a velvety effect and a smooth canvas that make-up can adhere too easily. More than that, with regular use, it is proven to help with your core anti-ageing concerns – notably the fact testers say it can reduce the appearance of fine lines by 51%, while 86% agree it helps to minimise redness. You’ll also find make-up looks better and is less likely to crease as the day wears on.
Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder, £38
Best For: Anyone Prone To Shine
Why We Love It: There’s a reason this has won countless awards. With micro-fine particles – in other words, barely visible – this smooth powder skims the skin and, unlike others on the market, never feels chalky or leaves you looking ghostly. It quickly mattifies excess oiliness and shine but does so with a subtle luminosity that’s unbeatable. Ideal for those wanting to set make-up too, it smooths skin out, blurring pores and any other uneven tone within your skin. Better still, it will last you for months on end. A must-try for mature skin that has excess sheen.
Beautiful Skin Foundation, £36
Best For: Coverage That Doesn’t Cake
Why We Love It: Merging the benefits of skincare and make-up, Charlotte Tilbury’s latest foundation is a must try for mature complexions. Promising to flood your skin with moisture, boost better glow and protect from dulling issues like pollution, it ticks all the right boxes and feels very lightweight – never thick or cakey. Available in 30 shades, there is one for everyone to try, with a formula that promises to ‘stretch’ to suit your individual skin type. Hyaluronic acid and coconut extract lock in moisture, while something called Bix’Activ targets excess shine and enlarged pores. Expect glowing coverage that goes the distance, with a plumper-looking complexion to boot. Extra points for the vegan-friendly formula and recyclable tube.
Collagen Superfusion Facial Oil, £60
Best For: Dull, Lacklustre Skin
Why We Love It: Proven to boost skin tone, texture and glow in just eight weeks, this silky oil has been making waves in the beauty world. Containing collagen and a range of nourishing vitamins, it hydrates skin and creates better luminosity, while plumping out fine lines for a smoother appearance. Better still, it never feels sticky, tacky or too occlusive. It contains essential oils too – vitamin E-rich raspberry, evening primrose and olive oil all work in tandem to smooth out your skin’s texture, reduce redness and deliver deep hydration into your dermis (the top layer of your skin). Warm the oil in your hands, then massage it in and really work it into the skin. Because it’s so lightweight, you’ll find it doesn’t interfere with other products, or leave your skin feeling sticky last thing at night.
Pillow Talk Lip + Cheek Glow, £30
Best For: Those On-The-Go
Why We Love It: We love this lip and cheek tint that has a buttery formula and impressive colour payoff. Vitamin E and beeswax combine for a texture that’s easy to work with and build upon for better intensity – you can also sheer it out if you want more of a glossy, lustrous finish. The best bit? It’s great on the go. You don’t need a special set of tools, just use your finger to dab this into lips and cheeks for a soft, flushed effect that takes seconds to create and instantly looks youthful.
Beautiful Skin Bronzer, £42
Best For: A Believable Hit Of Warmth
Why We Love It: With a creamy texture, this is full of hyaluronic acid and vitamin D3 to hydrate, nourish and plump the skin. Brand new, it's the latest member to Charlotte Tilbury's Beautiful Skin range. Unlike some bronzers on the market, it glides – never tugs – over the skin and is easy to build upon or thin out depending on your preference. Designed to be used on both the face and body, we recommend applying it with a big fluffy brush, focusing on areas where the sun would naturally hit your skin – think cheekbones, forehead, nose and jawline. Completely foolproof, even bronzing novices will love how this makes their skin look and feel. We love the moisturising formula which keeps dry crepiness at bay.
Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir, £28
Best For: Plumping Lips & Restoring Lost Volume
Why We Love It: This clever elixir boasts the power of a serum in the comfort of an oil for a formula that soaks up dryness and, in turn, gives a hydrated, plumped appearance. Non-sticky, it’s lightweight and smooth, thanks to hyaluronic acid and Swertian Leaf Extract. A joy to apply, it’s easy to sweep on when you’re in a rush. Either opt for the clear glossy shade that gives a healthy appearance, or look to Rose Lust or Berry Bliss for a shot of colour that’s impactful, without being OTT. An everyday staple.
Magic Cream, £75
Best For: Versatile Results
Why We Love It: Thick and heavy-duty, this award-winning cream was one of Charlotte Tilbury’s first products and it’s continued to be a best-seller. Using brightening vitamins C and E, it boosts uneven tone, while peptides strengthen skin and encourage better elasticity for a plumper appearance. There is shea butter and hyaluronic acid in there too for hydration – both ingredients give a quenched effect that really shows post-use. Better still, alongside hydrating, its unique texture (once dry) works well as a primer, with make-up adhering to it seamlessly for longer-lasting results. Ideal for drier skin, but also anyone looking for extra nourishment and a more supple effect.
Supernudes Nudegasm Palette, £60
Best For: A Healthy-Looking Glow
Why We Love It: Designed for use all over the skin – and eyelids – this does-it-all palette has four very warm shades that are versatile and flattering. Its minimal shimmer levels make it ideal for more mature skin types that don’t want their highlighter settling into fine lines. Instead, a gentle dusting of this over the highest points of the face gives a healthy, fresh and youthful glow, alongside some flattering definition. Use a big fluffy, buffing brush, swirling it over all shades for something more impactful, or pick out just one or two tones at a time to create more precise looks – either way, you’re guaranteed speedy radiance that looks realistic and fresh.
Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum, £45
Best For: Beating Puffiness & Inflammation
Why We Love It: Dubbed an ‘alarm clock for your eyes’, this serum is brimming with key ingredients, including ‘Iceawake,’ which is known for its ability to instantly hydrate. Secondly, ‘Swiss Ice Wine Essence’ offers a smoothing effect – though it’s temporary, the healthy-looking glow is second to none. It also contains peptides and caffeine which will pep up your appearance, reduce swelling and calm inflamed skin. The cooling metal applicator makes the process seriously satisfying, too. While it won’t get rid of puffiness and dullness overnight, it will improve the appearance of the area, giving it a tighter, firmer look.
Golden Glow Quick + Easy Make-Up, £55
Best For: Creating Looks At Speed
Why We Love It: These new, portable cases house three sticks for your eyes, lips and cheeks. We love ‘Golden Glow’ for the warm, bronze tones that are especially flattering for more mature skin. The idea for each product is you can blend the creams, scribble, smudge and go – no mirrors required. Each formula is easy to use with a buildable texture that goes the distance. We love the Easy Highlighter Wand that subtly sculpts and brings a dewy glow to the skin within seconds that is never too theatrical or overly pigmented. Makes a great gift, too.
Magic Night Cream, £100
Best For: Anti-Ageing Effects
Why We Love It: Four years in the making, this Magic Night Cream boasts the same benefits as the original formula, but with the addition of retinol and collagen. These ingredients – combined with peptides and castor seed oil – boost cell turnover for a brighter, smoother surface come morning. Pro make-up artists often say you only have to use this once to see what all the fuss is about come morning. With a glossy almost balmy consistency, it’s luxurious to apply, while the bounce and glow it gives is unrivalled. With regular use, the retinol will work to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also giving skin better resilience and strength.
