    MAGIC STEP 10: CREATE A SUMPTUOUS KISS

    Use Charlotte’s lip icons to create the ultimate lip look for day or night. Line and define your lips with Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk. It’s the perfect barely-there nude pink lip liner for reshaping and resizing the look of your pout. Add the moisturising, light peach K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Yes Honey for an irresistible nude lip. When you’re ready to dial it up, layer Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in High Society for a sheer berry lip gloss to create a luxe, 3-dimensional pout.

    Tilbury Tip: For deeper complexions, Charlotte recommends Lip Cheat Liner in Pillow Talk Intense. It’s the iconic, nude-pink shade, but dialled up for a deeper, sweeter look! This tawny-brown liner looks extra dreamy on deeper skin tones. Layer Matte Revolution Lipstick in So 90s, a creamy, nude-brown lipstick, for a timelessly elegant soft, chocolate shade.

    MAGIC STEP 11: BLUSH AND GO

    Sweep on the iconic, tawny rose shade of Charlotte’s Cheek to Chic Blusher in Sex on Fire for gorgeous-looking skin.

    To apply, SWISH your brush around the outer shade, tap off any excess, and sweep the color from the apples of your cheeks up towards the top of your cheekbone. To add a POP of glow, dip your brush into the centre shade, and tap onto the apples of your cheeks. Swirl the two shades together for a dreamy dash of colour.
