For a poreless, flawless-looking complexion, Charlotte’s full coverage Airbrush Flawless Foundation is suitable for all skin types including skin with hyperpigmentation, redness and acne. Follow Charlotte’s 5 step magic tutorial for complexion perfection - flawless is a feeling!


  1. Pearly-white, thick and luscious face cream in a glass jar with a gold-coloured lid with the CT initials on it.

    Step 1: Moisturise

    Start by moisturising your skin by applying Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser to the face for a hydrated, pumper-looking canvas for makeup.

  2. A colour corrector compact in a warm peach shade with a mirrored-lid in golden-coloured packaging.

    Step 2: Colour Correct

    Neutralise areas where you have hyperpigmentation on the face and under the eyes with Charlotte’s Magic Vanish cream colour correctors. The buttery, feather-light compact formula neutralises and corrects the look of various intensities of pigmentation on the skin including dark circles under the eyes; simply apply and blend out by tapping lightly with your ring finger for a smoother-looking, evened-out base for your foundation!

  3. A double-ended face brush for contouring, applying foundation, blush, and bronzer, with the handle in black and gold colour and the synthetic bristles in grey-blonde and black colours.

    Step 3: Buff & Blend

    Using the large, flat-topped head of the dual-ended Hollywood Complexion Brush, apply Charlotte's best foundation for hyperpigmentation, Airbrush Flawless Foundation to your skin. Blend the full-coverage formula outwards from the centre of your face for a flawless, poreless-looking, airbrushed, natural matte finish.

  4. A concealer in a light beige shade in golden-coloured packaging.

    Step 4: Conceal & Brighten

    Apply the Magic Away liquid concealer under the eyes and other areas on the face you’d like more coverage, including where you applied your Magic Vanish colour corrector. The full-coverage creamy formula is perfect for creating a flawless-looking canvas; apply from the magic cushion applicator and blend with the fingertips

  5. Airbrush Flawless Finish pressed powder helps to set foundation and concealer in place

    Step 5: Set Your Base

    Set your flawless-looking makeup in place with Charlotte’s iconic Airbrush Flawless Finish setting powder to minimise shine and blur the look of imperfections; it’s like a silk slip for your complexion! Apply it around your nose and T-zone for a dreamy soft-focus finish!

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

    Step 6: Sculpt & Highlight

    Define and sculpt the face using Filmstar Bronze & Glow contour and highlight palette, applying the Sculpt shade with Charlotte’s Powder & Sculpt Brush to the cheekbones for defined complexion perfection!
