Charlotte Tilbury is fast becoming the must have makeup brand. Not only are the products beautiful formulated, the collections are considerate and the packaging is stunning. The idea behind the brand is that you pick a 'look' that you want to recreate and you can buy the products to recreate that exact look!
The second palette photographed is the Sophisticate palette which is my absolute favourite. It's the first product I bought from the brand and I use it a lot! It's the only all matte palette on offer and it's the perfect combination of shades! I usually use the lightest shade as an all over base colour, followed by the light brown as a transition shade and then the mid-tone brown in the crease. If I want a more dramatic look, I will use the darkest brown shade on the outer corner of the eye for extra definition.
All of the eyeshadows are beautifully creamy and blend out very easy. They're pigmented enough so you can create a look quickly but not too pigmented so that you can easily correct any mistakes you make. I do use an eye primer underneath like I do with any other eyeshadow, but these last all day!
This brush is a game changer for a lot of people but at first I was skeptical. How can a brush make such a difference? Well it does. I live for contouring - it's part of my daily routine. Before I got my hands on this brush, I used either the MAC 168 brush or the Real Techniques Metal Collection Contour Brush but this has well and truly taken their place.
The bristles aren't packed in tight so it leaves a light application of product on the skin and with it all of them coming to a point, it allows you to define the cheekbones so easily. You can of course use this brush to apply powder more precisely than you can with a big fluffy brush but it's got to be my favourite contour brush!
