Glowy Bridal Makeup Tutorial

  1. Charlotte's Science-Powered Serum and Magic Cream kit includes Charlotte's Magic Cream moisturiser and Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir

    Step 1: Magic Skin Prep

    Every glowy bridal makeup look should start with a magic skincare routine! To create a silky-smooth canvas for your makeup that looks lit-from-within, choose my Science Powered Serum and Magic Cream Kit. Apply Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir to a freshly cleansed face to deliver an intense moisture boost, followed by Charlotte’s Magic Cream to immediately revive the look of skin and leave it looking plumper, smoother and with a gorgeous glow.

    Once you’ve applied the secrets for magic skin in my Science Powered Serum and Magic Cream Kit, prime, protect and perfect the look of your complexion with my Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer – a sunscreen-primer hybrid with SPF50 sun-protection that hydrates and helps shields your skin from harmful UV rays and pollutants.

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

    Step 2: Healthy-Looking Complexion

    To give the face a healthy-looking glow, apply the icons in my Beautiful Skin Complexion Kit to unlock effortless complexion perfection that looks fresh and naturally radiant. Starting with foundation, apply Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation to the centre of your face and blend outwards using the Magic Complexion Brush. Then, apply Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer under the eyes, over smile lines and in any areas where you want to conceal, such as over blemishes or redness. I recommend the small, tapered end of the Hollywood Complexion Brush for blending concealer – remember to use upward motions for a flattering lift effect!
