So picture me (me!) sat in Harvey Nichols, Leeds after closing time, a glass of prosecco in my hand, watching a professional make up artist equipped with the Charlotte Tilbury make up collection, making a goddess like model even more beautiful than she started off.
Any questions? She asks.
YES! I say, pumped up by my Prosecco and my empty stomach.
“Say you’re a mum, a new mum even… and you have about three minutes in the morning – and you can only afford three products, what would you recommend?”
She didn’t skip a beat:
- Charlotte’s Magic Cream (a silky smooth moisturiser apparently designed FOR KATE MOSS)
- Retoucher concealer (a little wand of magic to hide the shadows and mags)
- Full fat lashes (a fab mascara)
I then gave her an option of two more products, she chose:
- Wonder Glow (a shimmery base that make your skin come alive)
- Pillow Talk lip liner (a colour that emphasises your lips without you looking like a clown)
Now – for me I would add just two more essentials (because I have so many Charlotte Tilbury products I basically believe I know more than the professionals) : the brow pencil (without brows I look pretty ridiculous. Once I have my brows drawn on I can face the outside world.
Lastly – the Film star bronze and glow. If you’re going to buy one thing – just one – I would go for this. I have actual make up savvy teenagers asking me “Gurrrlll …. where you get that highlighter?”
It’s a bronzer and highlighter pallet – simple to use and makes your dead face resurrect from the dark side.
I have been obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury make up and skin care since this time last year when I booked myself in for a make over with Leanne at Harvey Nichols, Leeds. I can honestly say I have never looked better.
Since then I have bought most of their collection – I don’t spend much on clothes, shoes, but my face – I have spent a small fortune.
I prefer Charlotte Tilbury to brands like MAC for example because it’s so subtle, so classy and I genuinely feel like it makes me look my best. I think it makes any woman look her best – without changing them or hiding their face in layers and layers on caked on make up.
And trust me – I know it’s super pricey compared to some, but my magic cream lasted a year, I still have half my foundation left, half my wonder glow left and my film star bronze and highlighter is still going!
Maybe you can’t bear to part with your money over the products – but it is definitely one for your christmas list.
Now ….. here is a sneak peak at their Christmas collection. Husband… Mum – I hope you’re reading.
If you pop to Harvey Nichols in Leeds have a browse … even one product can transform your mornings.
Ask for Lauren and say Stephanie sent you – she will sort you out!
