How To Create My Magical Everyday Simple Makeup Look

Creating a simple makeup look for day-to-day wear is easy thanks to my MAGIC tips and tricks and ICONIC skincare and beauty products! Read on to discover how to create an everyday makeup look in minutes…

  1. Charlotte's Magic Recipe skincare kit including Glow Toner, Magic Serum, Magic Cream and Collagen Facial Oil

    MAGIC STEP 1: Create a Clean and Hydrated Canvas

    First things first. Before applying any makeup, your skin should be clean, moisturised and hydrated! My guide to the correct order of skincare products for your routine tells you everything you need to know for MAGIC skin! I never do makeup without first moisturising the skin with my award-winning Charlotte's Magic Cream; it’s essential for creating a hydrated, brighter, and plumper-looking canvas for every look!

    Tilbury Tip: Don’t forget to clean your hands before applying my MAGIC skincare products.

  2. Wonderglow is an illuminating primer that gives the skin a soft-focused, luminous finish

    MAGIC STEP 2: Prime Your Face

    The next step is to put your base in place! My ICONIC face primers will create a smooth and plumper-looking complexion and will give your makeup products some serious staying power. My research-powered primers include Wonderglow for a smoother-looking, candlelit complexion and Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer SPF50, a poreless primer and sunscreen in one!

    Tilbury Tip: Once you’ve applied your primer, wait a minute or two before applying your makeup. This will give your primer some time to settle while allowing all of my MAGICAL skincare ingredients to absorb into your skin!

  3. An open foundation wand in gold packaging with a pump dispenser and a medium-brown-coloured body to show the shade of the foundation inside.

    MAGIC STEP 3: Achieve Flawless Coverage

    For your simple everyday makeup look to reap the best beauty results, it’s important to conceal any imperfections and create a FLAWLESS-LOOKING base! My Magic Vanish! is a long-wear colour corrector that visibly conceals the look of dark spots and circles and helps to correct uneven skin tone. Apply to your face and under-eye area before creating buildable medium coverage with my hydrating Charlotte's Beautiful Skin Foundation for a beautiful, healthy-looking GLOW!

    Tilbury Tip: Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes before applying your makeup. My guide to how to clean your makeup brushes tells you everything you need to know.

    After you’ve applied your foundation, lock in your base using my MAGIC face powders! My Airbrush Flawless Finish is a perfectly pressed powder with smoothing effects, while my Airbrush Brightening Flawless Finish will brighten, blur and lift the entire look of your face! Not only will applying powder give you cashmere-like skin but it’ll also help to set your foundation in place, meaning fewer touch-ups will be needed throughout the day!
