1. Prep your skin with Charlotte’s Magic Cream applied to your face and neck, creating the perfect canvas.

2. For the ultimate Hollywood superstar-lit glow, apply a blend of Magic Foundation with Hollywood Flawless Filter.

3. Apply The Retoucher concealer around your eyes and nose where needed, to mask any minor imperfections.

4. Create the ultimate killer cheekbones with Charlotte’s Hollywood Contour Wand paired with Filmstar Bronze & Glow to contour and add definition to your cheeks, temples, jawline and nose.

5. To add an ultra-flattering pop of colour, apply Charlotte’s Pretty Youth Glow Filter in Pretty Fresh with Charlotte’s Cheek Hug Brush for targeted, sculpting application.


1. To create Salma’s smoldering, bigger and brighter eye look, apply the NEW Bigger Brighter Eyes palette in Transform-Eyes.

2. Apply the soft champagne gold PRIME shade to your eyelid to help prime the eyelids making them look wider, fresher and elongated. A pop was added to the inner corners of the eyes too, to give the appearance of wider, brighter eyes.

3. Apply the ENLARGE shade, an enhancing copper-gold to contour the outer socket. This light-reflecting shade lifts the look of the eye.

4. Next, apply the highly pigmented, dark chocolate DEFINE shade along your lash line to add definition, brighten and lift the look of the eye.

5. Finish the look with the deep brick red POP shade. This shade color-contrasts with most eye-colours, adding vividness to the iris like a filter does.

6. Add subtle definition to your brows and structure to your face using Legendary Brows in Clear and softly filled using Brow Lift eyebrow pencil.

7. Draw the Rock ‘N’ Kohl eyeliner pencil in Elizabeth Violet along the water line with Rock ‘N’ Kohl eyeliner pencil in Barbarella Brown for an elongated feline flick for a subtle cat eye effect.

8. Finish your eye makeup look using lashings of Charlotte’s NEW Legendary Lashes Volume 2 on your top and bottom lashes for a lasting Hollywood flutter.


1. Complete your look using Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pink Venus to create the effect of fuller, wider-looking lips. Fill in your lips using Charlotte’s Hot Lips lipstick in Hot Emily, a bright warm coral hue and finished with a coat of the NEW Collagen Lip Bath for a plumper, wider-looking pout.

2. Finally, apply a light dusting of Charlotte’s Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder to perfect the skin and prevent excess shine.
