Step 1: For a nourished complexion with an extra hydration boost, apply Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser all over your face and neck. Massaging this in will help create a glowing canvas for your makeup.

Step 2: Dot the Magic Eye Rescue around your under-eye area and tap in to help it absorb.

Step 3: Apply Magic Foundation all over, blending from the centre of your face outwards, ensuring that you blend well with your hairline and jawline.

Step 4: For extra coverage, apply the Magic Away concealer to any blemishes or imperfections and tap in with your ring finger to help blend.

Step 5: Complete your complexion by applying the Airbrush Flawless Finish powder to your t-zone and any areas with excess oiliness for a mattified, perfected finish to your skin.

Step 6: Shape and define your brows with the Brow Lift and Legendary Brows eyebrow products to help frame your face.

Step 7: Take the Stars-in-your-Eyes palette and apply the first Prime shade of the Confident Eyes to your eyelids using a Blender Brush. You can apply this to the inner corners too, using a Smudger Brush.

Step 8: Use the Blender Brush to sweep the Enhance shade from the outer corners inwards, back and forth like a windscreen wiper. Here you can build up the intensity and run the same shade along your lower lash line with the Smudger Brush.

Step 9: For a vibrant smokey eye, apply the Smoke shade to the outer corner V shape using a Smudger Brush for extra precision.

Step 10: Use the Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Bedroom Black to create a winged eyeliner feline flick. Finish your eyes with lashings of Full Fat Lashes mascara for a wide-eyed flutter.

Step 11: Use the Superstar Lips in Confident Lips straight from the bullet for a sumptuous berry-stained pout.

Step 12: Finish your look by applying Bar of Gold Palette to your cheekbones and high points of your face and collarbone for a gorgeous glow.

Party Makeup Top Tips:

Dial up your glitter eye makeup gradually to your desired intensity. The ‘Pop’ shades of the Luxury Palettes or Palette of Pops work best applied with your fingers to control the level of intensity.

Don’t forget the basics! It’s easy to get caught up in the gorgeous glitter eye makeup and statement lips. The rest of your makeup is key for that overall flawless look. Perfect your brows easily by filling in any areas and create an arch to frame your face and show off your eye makeup.

For extra staying power to your lipstick, apply the coordinating lip liner first, outlining your lips then filling them in with the colour. If your lipstick fades when eating or throughout a long night, then you will still have the colour from your lip liner.

Think seasonally about your coverage. When applying concealer in the colder months, think about the areas that have more redness than in summer. Around your nose and chin are often areas that are more sensitive in colder months. A little extra concealer can go a long way.
