My Favourite Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Products


It is time for a blog post all about one of my favourite brands and that is Charlotte Tilbury. If you have been around on my blog for quite some time or if you used to read my original blog, you will know that I have always been such a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury. I have purchased so much from the brand over the years and I have been lucky enough to be gifted some of their items from time to time. I will admit that with the constant releases over the past couple of years, I have been overwhelmed by the amount of new products, but that is why I wanted to sit down today and write about what I think are the best of the best products and what I would recommend you go out and purchase as soon as possible and add them to your collection.


Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. Where to start with this amazing item. I picked this up after having my makeup done once at the Charlotte Tilbury store in Covent Garden and I fell in love with it. Even though I am oily, I also am pretty dry and I need a thick and luxurious cream like this for me to help combat my problem areas. I have worn this every single day under my makeup for years and years and I would never think twice about parting with my cash for this Magic Cream.


Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer. This is my second step of hydration every single day when I am applying my makeup and I really do think that my skin feels grateful. I just apply small dots of this around my face and rub it in using my fingers. It helps my skin to brighten up, it looks lovely and my skin is prepped for the rest of my makeup. I don’t think that you necessarily need to use this and the Hollywood Filter that I am going to mention next, but I love how glowing and bright the combination makes my skin look.


Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter. If you are wanting a glow and for your skin to look super healthy and glowing, this is the product that you need to be reaching for and using. I take just a couple of dots of this product and apply it around my face, I then blend it in with my foundation brush, before actually going in with my foundation. I find that not only does it make my skin much more glowing and bright, it also helps my makeup to look much more natural when I am pairing it with a full coverage foundation.


Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation. I didn’t buy this for the longest time because I tried to tell myself that I didn’t need to get my hands on any more foundations, that was until I saw it and swatched it in person. Once I realised just how pigmented this Charlotte Tilbury foundation was, I realised that I had to own it and start using it. This is a much thicker foundation than my everyday Nars foundation, I know that when I reach for this product and apply it that my base is going to be in place all day long without fail!


Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer. For many years I was on the hype of the Tarte Shape Tape and as much as I liked it, when I tried the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer and I realised that I could have a lighter texture on the skin, it showed me what I was missing. If I am going for a lighter makeup look, this is the concealer that I reach for without question. I am a big fan of the sponge applicator too because it makes it a great item to keep in my makeup bag when I am out and about.


Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand. I used this years back when it was first released and then when it was empty I didn’t repurchase it, I think it was because there didn’t seem to be much product in the tube. In my time away from this item I used some more cream contouring products and even though I liked them, almost every single one broke me out and that is why I cam running back to this wonderful item. It helps to chisel and bronze up the skin and I am completely here for that!


Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer. This is one of my latest Charlotte Tilbury additions to my collection and I am so head over heels with it. For many years I was mixing two different bronzers to get my perfect tone, but this just ticks all of the boxes in my opinion. I am in shade 3, which is tan and I have to admit that it is simply perfect for me. I have used this daily since I first got it last year and I have not grown tired of it yet, nor have I thought about buying a new bronzer!


Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow. I feel like this is one of the most iconic things that you can get from Charlotte Tilbury and I have had it in my collection or so long. The contour shade is nice, but only really works for me when I am not super tanned, or you can’t really see it and it can border on looking a little ashy. It is the highlighter in this palette which is a true winner for me, it compliments the depth in my skin tone and never looks too overly shiny!


Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Blush. Sex on Fire blusher has to be my all time favourite. Because of my in between skin tone, blusher is something that I always struggled with up to finding this one. The shade is amazing and compliments my skin colouring perfectly, it is not too deep, not too pink and doesn’t look chalky on the skin. I have used this same colour almost daily for probably 5 years and I love it so much. I highly recommend these to everybody!


Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glamour Lash. I bought these on quite a whim, but these are now my go to pair of eyelashes when I want something a little more special. They are thick, fluffy yet not too heavy at the same time. I have to be super careful with my lashes because I have quite small eyes so brands like Lilly Lashes can be quite heavy on me, but these are perfect. I also had the same pair for around 30 years and they looked just as good as new!


Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liners. I thought that I would generalise this category because I could speak about these forever and a day. I think that my personal favourite has to be Iconic Nude because it is a great neutral shade for my medium skin tone. I love how this looks, it applies like a dream and it is comfortable to wear all day long. I will say that it isn’t quite as long lasting as a MAC lip liner, but I would rather reapply and it be more comfortable!


Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Finish Powder. The reason why I am mentioning this product last of all is because it is an item that I carry with me every single day in my handbag for touch ups. I have an oily complexion so I need to set throughout the day and this is the powder that I always reach for. No matter how much my makeup may have broken up, this product smooths everything over and mattifies to perfection. God knows how many of these compacts I have gone through over the years!


I hope that you guys liked this blog post and if you haven’t already, I would highly recommend that you go out and try some of these items for yourself. All of the items that I have mentioned I have been using and wearing for so long and I know that they are going to be firm favourites in my collection for many years to come. As always, I will pop some links to these items down below in case you would like to go ahead and check them out for yourself. Please do leave me a comment and let me know some of your favourite Charlotte Tilbury items and if I haven’t already tried them I will ensure to go ahead and get my hands on them.
