“Modern day city life can wreak havoc on the skin! I wanted Airbrush Flawless Foundation to defend as well as beautify”

– Charlotte Tilbury

With a ground-breaking formula, the unique combination of Peptide Extract Microalgae, Amino Acid Arginine and moisturising PCA creates a power-pact to help try to defend the skin against the effect of urban exposure, which can contribute to premature skin aging.

In Charlotte’s twenty-seven years as a MAKEUP ARTIST TO THE STARS, people have always asked for her secret to the ‘flawless’ feeling derived from a poreless-looking, satin-smooth, visibly airbrushed, youthful-looking and FLAWLESSLY MATCHED complexion. This foundation is it!
