How to Apply Airbrush Flawless Foundation on Mature Skin

  1. A pearly-white cream in a glass jar with a metallic, golden-coloured lid which has 'Charlotte's Magic Cream' written on it.

    Step 1: Moisturize

    Start by moisturizing your face with Charlotte’s Magic Cream, massaging the rich formula onto the skin using outward motions and the Tilbury Tap technique (a pitter-patter of the fingertips on the skin) for a healthy, brighter-looking complexion!

  2. Champagne-coloured eye cream in a petite glass pot with a rose-gold-coloured lid with Charlotte Tilbury written on it.

    Step 2: Hydrate & Refresh

    Next, hydrate the eye area with Charlotte’s Magic Eye Rescue cream. This revitalising eye cream is a must-have for youthful-looking skin; apply to refresh the under-eye area, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help brighten dark circles. Gently apply under the eyes before your foundation for a smooth, brighter-looking canvas!

  3. A 2-in-1, double-sided multi-purpose makeup contour brush in rose-gold and dark crimson colour.

    Step 3: Buff & Blend

    Using the Hollywood Complexion Brush, apply the stay-all-day, weightless, full-coverage Airbrush Flawless Foundation, starting in the centre of the face and blending outwards for flawless, poreless-looking, airbrushed base makeup with a natural matte finish.

  4. A liquid concealer in an ivory shade in golden-coloured packaging.

    Step 4: Conceal & Brighten

    Charlotte’s Magic Away liquid concealer contains the magic, youth-boosting ingredients Palmitoyl Glycine and Persian Silk Tree Bark extract which helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles! To brighten and smooth the under-eye area, apply from the magic cushion applicator to tap and blend the creamy concealer under the eyes.
