Did you catch the Grammys last night? The former FLOTUS made a standing o-worthy appearance in a shimmering olive Sachin & Babi pantsuit, JLo took on Motown, Alicia pounded two sets of Keys, Katy Perry looked like she fell off a cake, and Bebe Rexha proved a size 8 can still look red hot.

Probably the most female-centric Grammys in history.

One of my favorite looks came from Best New Artist winner Dua Lipa. Reminiscent of Liz Hurley’s iconic safety-pinned Versace, Lipa accepted her award in a black, white, and gold-adorned gown. Makeup artist Lilly Keys complemented her sleek bobbed hair products by Charlotte Tilbury.

Here’s a breakdown of the Charlotte Tilbury products used to get Lipa’s look.

COMPLEXION

  • Magic Cream primed Lipa’s face for a smooth, glowy canvas.
  • Brightening Youth Glow and Wonder Glow were tapped in lightly, followed by Magic Foundation for a flawless finish.
  • For areas that needed some extra coverage, Keys combined Magic Away and The Retoucher concealers, plus Mini Miracle Eye Wand under her eyes.

CHEEKS

EYES

  • Shades from the Pillow Talk Luxury Palette were used to prime her eyes, followed by some shimmer from Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette.
  • Color Chameleon eye shadow pencils in Amber Haze and Golden Quartz deepened the color.
  • Rock N Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown added further dimension.
  • The Feline Flick liner created the final statement cat eye
  • Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara was used on Lipa’s top and bottom lashes

LAUNCH ALERT: Charlotte Tilbury Complexion Collection

22 Aug

LAUNCH ALERT! Charlotte Tilbury’s long-awaited Complexion Collection debuts tomorrow on CharlotteTilbury.com  and will be available in stores worldwide on September 6th. 

As a big fan of her skincare products, I’m counting the minutes to see what Charlotte does for color correction. She’s launching with two products – a concealer stick and a loose powder. Product details below.

MAGIC AWAY LIQUID CONCEALER
Magic Away is Charlotte’s attempt at the holy grail of concealers. Available in 16 shades, this miracle stick covers skin imperfections like dark circles, pigmentation, redness & blemishes in one swipe.

This concealer is full-coverage, lasts up to 15 hours, is water resistant, and created with Elastic Second Skin Texture to mimic the look of a fresh, new complexion.

Charlotte’s Tips for Application:

  • Use the Magic Miracle Precision beauty blender applicator to blend Magic Away on top of your Magic Foundation or Light Wonder to help reduce the appearance of blemishes, redness and pigmentation.
  • Apply more to any areas which need more coverage.
  • To brighten the under-eye area, use a lighter shade of Magic Away. Tap on gently with your ring finger.

 

CHARLOTTE’S GENIUS MAGIC POWDER

A light-diffusing loose powder that blurs imperfections on the face and underneath eyes. It visibly reduces dark shadows and helps boost radiance. Lastly, Genius Magic Powder is said to help mattify and give skin a smoother appearance.

Available in three shades: light, medium & dark.

Charlotte’s Tips for Application:

  • Apply Charlotte’s Genius Magic Powder on top of Magic Foundation or Light Wonder using the Powder & Sculpt brush to mattify and smooth skin’s appearance.
  • To visibly reduce dark eye circles, use the Blender brush and tap off any excess product before applying.
