“It’s an angelic filter to enhance what nature naturally gave you and make you feel like a beautiful, celestial angel… A look that lights up the runway and casts a magic makeup spell on the world!!” - Charlotte Tilbury


  1. A hydrating sheet mask inspired by Korean skincare in a rose-gold aluminum packaging

    Step 1: Hydrate your skin

    Use the Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask to help hydrate your skin for a glowing, radiant-looking complexion, before starting your makeup.

  2. A pearly-white face cream in a glass jar with its metallic, golden-coloured lid next to it.

    Step 2: Moisturise

    Apply Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser all over your complexion, massaging in to help it absorb and flood the skin with moisture. Then apply Magic Eye Rescue eye cream to help nourish the delicate eye area.

  3. An open, foundation in a light beige colour with its rose gold coloured, metallic lid next to it.

    Step 3: Prime your face and apply foundation

    Blend the Wonderglow face primer into your skin, then apply Light Wonder foundation from the centre of your face, blending outwards towards the hairline. For a sun-kissed glow, use a shade slightly warmer than your natural skin tone.

  4. An open glow-boosting primer in a glass bottle with a rose gold-coloured lid with a doe-foot applicator.

    Step 4: Apply concealer

    For extra coverage, apply Magic Away concealer to any blemishes and under your eyes for a brighter-looking complexion. Then use the Hollywood Flawless Filter to create a soft-focused, illuminated appearance.

  5. An open, mirrored-lid duo contour palette for light to medium skin tones in sleek rose-gold-coloured packaging.

    Step 5: Apply bronzer

    Use the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette in the hollows of your cheekbones to help sculpt and add warmth to your complexion.

  6. A liquid highlighter wand in a dreamy candlelight-gold shade with a brownish-copper-coloured tube.

    Step 6: Highlight your cheekbones

    Add the Beauty Light Wand highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones for that dreamy catwalk glow that plays with the light beautifully! You can pop this in the inner corners of your eyes to help brighten their appearance, too.

  7. An open, mirrored-lid, finely-milled pressed powder in rose gold packaging.

    Step 7: Set your makeup

    Set your makeup with the Airbrush Flawless Finish pressed powder applied to your t-zone and any areas of excess oiliness.

  8. An eyebrow pencil to lift and define the brows in a dark brown shade in maroon and gold-coloured packaging.

    Step 8: Shape your brows

    Brush up your brows using the Brow Lift to reveal their natural shape, and shape them to fill in and perfect your arch. Finish with the Victoria’s Secret Brow or Never Clear Eyebrow Gel to fix the perfect supermodel brows.

  9. An open, mirrored-lid eyeshadow palette in nude pink, gold, and brown shades.

    Step 9: Curl lashes & apply eyeshadow

    Curl your eyelashes using the Life Changing Lashes eyelash curler. Using the Bigger Brighter Eyes in Exagger-Eyes, apply the Enhance shade all over your eyelid using a Blender Brush. Use the Smoke shade along your lash line to add definition.

  10. An open cream eyeshadow pot in metallic rose gold shade with its lid next to it.

    Step 10: Enhance your gaze

    To enhance your gaze, apply the Eyes to Mesmerise in Rose Gold underneath your lower lash line to make your eyes pop.

  11. A close-up swatch of a dark brown eyeliner pencil.

    Step 11: Create winged eyeliner

    Use The Classic eyeliner in Sofia to create subtle winged eyeliner, then finish off with lashings of Victoria’s Secret Major Lash to complete your look.

  12. A nude pink lip liner pencil in golden-coloured packaging with the lid off.

    Step 12: Line then fill your lips

    Line your lips using the iconic Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk then use Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream in Showstopper to fill in your pout, for kissable lips that will last all day!

  13. A lip gloss in a sheer pink shade in a glass tube with its heart-shaped applicator next to it.

    Step 13: Apply gloss

    For a natural dewy veil of gloss, apply the Collagen Lip Bath lip gloss over the top of your lipstick.

  14. An open cream blush stick in a cool-tone pink shade in gold-coloured, metallic packaging with its lid next to it.

    Step 14: Apply blush

    Add a dewy, fresh, natural look to your complexion using a combination of Beach Sticks in Ibiza and Las Salinas for a sun-kissed blush effect.

  15. A hydrating body shimmer wand in a champagne-gold shade with identical coloured packaging and a twisting-style applicator.

    Step 15: Apply body shimmer

    For the finishing touches, apply Supermodel Body shimmer for glossy-skinned perfect-looking limbs in minutes.
