CHARLOTTE’S SECRETS FOR A FLAWLESS DAY
The inimitable Charlotte Tilbury, renowned makeup artist, creator of glow-giving products, and the woman responsible for some of the best skin on the red carpet, shares with us her secrets for a flawless day.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT A TYPICAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF CHARLOTTE?
"No two days ever look the same! I could be flying to a shoot in Ibiza, working backstage at a fashion show or dashing from product development meetings to campaign shoots and VIP appointments. It’s always very fast paced, but I embrace it and love it. Work hard, play hard!"
WHAT DAILY RITUAL DO YOU FOLLOW THAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD?
"Throughout the day, I keep myself energised through my mind-set. Everything is a state of mind: if you feel tired, you are tired; if you feel confident, you are! I get a lot of my energy from people. I love to dance and to have fun, and sometimes when I’m tired, I appreciate fun even more – it makes me feel more alive!"
TELL US ABOUT YOUR MORNING BEAUTY ROUTINE?
"The first thing I do is double cleanse with my incredible Goddess Cleansing Ritual. The Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanse is enriched with coconut-oil to just gently moisturise, nourish and give your skin the look of radiance. I follow with my Purifying Charcoal Cleanse to tackle deeper-rooted environmental dirt. It’s such a gorgeous little ritual in the morning. Next, I’ll use my Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask to hydrate and perfect the appearance of the skin, and I always apply my Magic Cream and Magic Eye Rescue to give me a gorgeous glowing, dewy-looking complexion!"
WHAT’S YOUR 5 MINUTE MORNING TRICK FOR FLAWLESS SKIN?
"I am never without my Magic Cream; it gives me the perfect glowing base. It has a unique blend of ingredients which I call the Magic 8, including Bionymph Peptide, Hyaluronic Acid, Camellia Oil and Vitamins C + E all with a touch of MAGIC! Then, I’d apply a quick layer of my amazing NEW! Airbrush Flawless Filter, for a flawless, poreless-looking complexion. It stretches so beautifully over the skin and just gives you instant skin confidence in a bottle. And then I always do my signature Feline Flick; it’s the easiest, quickest way to cheat a sultry, elongated-looking eye! I finish with lashings of my Full Fat Lashes Mascara and a swipe of my best-selling, nudey-pink lip, Pillow Talk Lipstick, straight from the bullet!!"
WHAT PRODUCT FROM YOUR COLLECTION ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF RIGHT NOW?
"I’m so excited about my New! Airbrush Flawless Foundation. It has been a labour of love. It’s where skincare meets makeup magic to give you the most flawless, poreless-looking complexion of your life."
When I wear this foundation, people ask me if I have had work done! Have I been on holiday? Why do I look so refreshed and so much younger? It really makes your skin look alive and makes you FEEL FLAWLESS! I can’t wait for everyone to try itCharlotte Tilbury
WHY IS AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FILTER FOUNDATION PERFECT FOR IRISH WOMEN?
"There is no other foundation like Airbrush Flawless Filter! It smooths and stretches over your skin for weightless full-coverage with a unique natural matte finish to make your skin look flawless, poreless, and MAGIC! Whether you’re fair or tan or medium or deep, I’ve worked with the labs to create 44 of the most INCREDIBLE, FLAWLESSLY-MATCHED shades that will BALANCE your undertones and OPTIMISE your overtones. We built this foundation from the pigment up so that everyone, everywhere can find their flawless skin-coded match. It’s so incredible because it works like a skincare product. I wanted a foundation that could do it all, so I’ve blended the most revolutionary, ground-breaking, first to market active ingredients, from Magic Replexium® Serum to SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 22%* to MossCellTec ™ No.1 , that boosts hydration levels by 216%** and AirCool™ to combat humidity with a fresh-feel on the skin!"
Women in Ireland really understand the power of makeup, so it’s incredibly exciting for me to be back to continue my makeup revolution.Charlotte Tilbury
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NIGHT-TIME BEAUTY ROUTINE?
"My bathroom is my sanctuary, so I if I’ve had a busy day, I might run a bath or light some candles to create a soothing, indulgent atmosphere."
"The key to flawless, poreless-looking skin at night is my Goddess Skin Clay Mask. I start by taking off all my makeup with my Take-It-All-Off eye makeup remover, followed by my beautiful Multi-Miracle Glow Balm. Then, I apply my mask and leave it on for 15 minutes. I remove it with a warm, damp cloth and then just smooth on my incredible retinol-infused Magic Night Cream and Magic Night Eye Rescue. I perform my signature ‘Tilbury Tap’ massage, working my fingers over my cheekbones like angel wings, then tapping across the forehead, chin and nose using a pitter-patter motion. Doing this gives you youthful, glowing skin in seconds, so my skin looks fresh and hydrated."
I always create my famous bedroom smoky eye before bed—a little eye makeup at night keeps the magic alive!! Once a week, I’ll apply my Overnight Bronze & Glow to give me a super-hydrated, easy, flawless-looking, faux tan. It’s like an overnight vacation!!
