Pinkgasm Sunset Makeup Tutorial

  1. Thick and luscious pearly-white moisturiser in an open glass jar with its gold-coloured lid placed behind it.

    Step 1: Moisturise & Prime the Face

    Darlings, before I share how to create a sensational sunset makeup look, you need to prep and prime your complexion! I always say, you can’t have a beautiful painting without a beautiful canvas… and the best way to prep your skin is by applying my award-winning, globally loved Charlotte’s Magic Cream!

    I formulated my iconic face cream as a backstage beauty secret for giving skin an immediate revival, helping it to look and feel hydrated, smoother, plumper and more luminous. The supercharged formula is powered by a Magic 8 Matrix of supercharged skincare ingredients including hydrating hyaluronic acid, brightening-effect vitamin C and smoothing-effect aloe vera, working to give the complexion an instant-turnaround effect while making skin look lit-from-within. I never do makeup without this magical moisturiser darlings, and neither should you!

    Once your canvas feels soft and supple, apply Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer SPF50 to prime, perfect and protect! I created this sunscreen-primer hybrid as a triple-action step in your skin prep routine; it delivers high-factor sun protection for essential everyday shielding from harmful rays while hydrating the skin with its hyaluronic acid-infused formula and blurring the appearance of pores to create a beauty filter effect. Smooth this primer onto the face after applying Charlotte’s Magic Cream and massage it into the skin until it becomes invisible with zero white cast.

  2. Charlotte's Beautiful Skin Foundation and Concealer for radiant, healthy-looking skin

    Step 2: Apply Foundation, Concealer and Powder

    Radiant, sun-dappled skin is the perfect base for your sunset makeup look! My Beautiful Skin collection features complexion-perfectors that are perfect for offering luminous, medium-buildable coverage while providing skincare benefits that improve the look of skin over time for your best skin day, every day.

    Once you’ve found your perfect shade match using my AI-Powered shade match tool, apply Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation to create a long-lasting medium-coverage look with a healthy-looking glow. Formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid and brightening-effect rose complex, this foundation is perfect for giving skin a powerful moisture boost while helping it look naturally radiant.

    To lift the look of your face, apply Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer. By gliding this hydrating concealer under the eyes and blending upwards and outwards, you can create a beautifying lift effect that helps the eye area to look brighter and more defined. This concealer also helps to reduce the look of fine lines, dark circles and blemishes – just apply in any areas you want some extra coverage and blend well with the small, tapered end of my Hollywood Complexion Brush.

    After applying foundation and concealer, set your complexion makeup in place with Airbrush Flawless Finish pressed powder. The award-winning, smoothing-effect formula helps to blur the look of pores and gives the face a soft-focused finish while helping to prevent creasing and unwanted shine.

    Step 3: Groom and Define your Brows

    Eyebrows are the pillars of your face, so it’s important to keep them well-groomed using my brow perfectors, Brow Cheat and Brow Fix. Start by using the spoolie end of Brow Cheat to brush brow hairs upwards for a fluffy, feathered effect, then use the micro-precision pencil tip to sketch out natural-looking strokes that define and shape the look of your brows. Once your brows are perfectly manicured, set them in place with my super-hold clear brow sculpting gel, Brow Fix, to unlock symmetrical, well-defined brows that stay in place.

    Step 4: Sunset-Inspired Eye Makeup

    Your eyes are the perfect canvas for playing with the glistening, golden hues that come to life at sunset. To give the lids a gleaming sunset glow, I recommend wearing my Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadow in Star Gold, an amber-gold that’s reminiscent of the last glowing sun rays of a summer evening.

    My fuss-free cream eyeshadow pots are easy to apply; using the Eye Blender Brush or your ring finger, apply Star Gold to the entire lid for instant sunset charm, and remember to glide the formula along the lower lash line to create a mesmerising eye look. Then, to accentuate the look of your eyes, draw along the lash line with The Classic powder eyeliner pencil in Black and extend beyond the outer corner to create my famous feline flick and apply lashings and lashings of Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! mascara to give the lashes instant lift and length.
