  1. Unisex Healthy Glow is Charlotte's tinted moisturiser for a sun-kissed complexion

    Step 1: Healthy-Looking Complexion

    First thing’s first, revive the look of your complexion with Unisex Healthy Glow. Potentially having to adapt to less sleep and early mornings can leave the skin looking tired and dull, so I recommend applying an easy complexion perfector that smooths across the face in seconds and leaves it looking healthy and sun-kissed.

    Unisex Healthy Glow morphs with your natural skin tone, letting bronzing tan pigments add warmth to the complexion. Smooth the hydrating, light-coverage formula into the skin with your fingers or with my Hollywood Complexion Brush and get an effortless glow in a flash!

  2. Charlotte's Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer with lid off

    Step 2: Coverage and Radiance

    To easily brighten the look of your complexion and conceal the look of dark circles or blemishes you may be experiencing, reach for my hydrating, radiant concealer, Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer.

    Powered by skincare ingredients including golden vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, my medium-buildable concealer marries the benefits of an eye cream with the finish of a concealer, providing coverage and a flattering brightening effect while helping to improve the look of skin with every wear.

    To apply, glide the applicator under the eyes and onto any areas you’d like to conceal the look of, then effortlessly blend using the smaller, tapered end of my Hollywood Complexion Brush.

  3. Open makeup kits with mirrored lids with products inside them displayed: a lip and cheek wand, highlighter stick, and eyeshadow stick, and the three products placed outside of the kit.

    Step 3: Quick & Easy Lips, Cheeks and Eyes

    My Quick & Easy Makeup Kits are perfect for new moms! I designed these kits as a super quick makeup fix that can easily be SWIPED, SCRIBBLED and SMUDGED onto the face to create beautiful, fuss-free makeup looks. Each kit includes an Easy Highlighter Wand, Easy Eye Wand and Easy Lip & Cheek Wand to illuminate the look of your cheeks, lips and eyes in SECONDS!

    1,2,3, Quick and Easy!

    1. Smudge your Easy Eye Wand onto the lids to create a magical cream eyeshadow look, blending out the edges with your fingers for a seamless wash of color.

    2. Swipe your Easy Lip & Cheek Wand onto the apples of the cheeks and blend out with your finger to create a dreamy cream blush look, then swipe the same wand onto your lips to double as a beautifying lip tint.

    3. Scribble your Easy Highlighter Wand onto the tops of the cheekbones to give them a dewy-looking glow, using your fingers to work the product into the skin.

  4. Mascara in a pink-coloured tube with its gold-coloured lid with a black applicator next to it.

    Step 4: Lift & Beautify Your Lashes

    A coat of mascara can make the biggest difference to your look! Applying lashings and lashings of Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! mascara enhances the look of your eyes, giving the lashes a 24-HOUR VERTICAL LIFT EFFECT and helping you to look WIDE AWAKE, even if you’ve been up all night with baby.

    If you have no time at all darlings, this is the makeup step that you should squeeze in! Comb the paddle brush through the lashes for an instant lift and stretch effect! Just like that, your lashes will look amplified, and you’ll feel immediately more confident.

    Step 5: Lock in your New Mum Makeup

    Darlings, I know that when you’re a new mum, you don’t have time to be touching up throughout the day – you need long-lasting products that look FLAWLESS! My AIRBrush icons are perfect for locking in your makeup, helping to extend the life of your look while giving the complexion a smoothing-effect, airbrushed-looking finish that you’ll ADORE!

    First, tap into Airbrush Flawless Finish pressed powder with the Powder & Sculpt Brush, then smooth the skin-perfecting formula onto your face to set your makeup in place. Focus pressed powder in the oiliest parts of the face such as the T-zone and around the mouth, as well as any areas that are prone to creasing such as over smile lines and under the eyes.

    To finish, mist Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray onto the face to help your makeup STAY ALL DAY for up to 16 HOURS! Whatever your little one has in store for you today, you can stay confident that your makeup will look AIRBRUSHED and FLAWLESS from breakfast to bedtime!
