Born backstage to give the skin fast-acting hydration and an instant glow, Charlotte’s iconic moisturiser is pure magic and the essential first step for any makeup look! Massage the nourishing formula into the skin using Charlotte’s Tilbury Tap method, letting the ‘Magic 8’ matrix of skin-loving ingredients absorb comfortably into the skin. Once you’ve applied Charlotte’s Magic Cream to the face, neck and décolletage, the skin appears smoother, plumper and ready for a flawless makeup application.

In a shade that closely matches your natural hair colour - click here to find your perfect brow makeup shade - use Charlotte’s brow-perfecting trio to create an immaculately arched brow that frames your face. Starting with Brow Cheat, a micro-precision brow pencil, etch out fine strokes that create the illusion of natural hairs to make brows look fuller and more defined. Then, use Legendary Brows to tint your brow hairs and create a feathered effect. Set them in place using Charlotte’s clear sculpting gel, Brow Fix, and your supermodel-inspired brows are party ready.
