In 2014 so many of you lovely beauty bloggers were raving about a luxury beauty brand that I hadn't heard of. After a while I decided to check the brand out myself and instantly fell in love with all it had to offer. That brand is Charlotte Tilbury.
One thing I lusted over for a long time was the beautiful eyeshadow palettes. They are made up of four complimenting shades allowing you to create some gorgeous looks and as an eyeshadow fiend I was desperate to get my mitts on one. Then my amazing boyfriend surprised me with one for Christmas and has since been officially awarded "Best Boyfriend Ever" award.
The "Golden Goddess" is one of the most beautiful palettes which mixes sultry browns with shimmery golds and is perfect for creating looks that you can wear in both the day and night time. The lightest shade, Prime, can be worn all over the eyelid to brighten up and give a really solid base. It's also great for highlighting under the eyebrow and in the tear duct. I love to wear Prime with Enhance (top right hand corner shade) for a subtle day time smoky eye. For something a little more dramatic I add some Smoke (bottom right shade) along the outer eye and to really vamp up my look I smudge some along the bottom lash line. Finally, to really vamp up this look I add some Pop (bottom left) along the eyelid for a shimmer finish.
As described by Charlotte herself these shades help to create a "sexy, sun-kissed look" all year round so are ideal for brightening up those dreary January days. The palette is worn and loved by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitley. If it's good enough for them surely it's good enough for me, am I right?
It is rather pricey at £38 for the palette, but I honestly think it's worth it. Here you really are paying for quality. The pigmentation is fantastic and the shadows glide onto the eye effortlessly and once applied last all day. I have been using this palette daily since I received it and I can't express how fabulous it is. If you haven't tried anything from the Charlotte Tilbury brand I urge you to try it now!
Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury?
Lots of love,
