How to Look Like Charlotte Tilbury

images-26Whether you’re giving a big presentation at work or heading to a wedding in the Hamptons (can we get an invite?), sometimes you want your makeup to scream sophistication. Fortunately, celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has just the thing for you: The Sophisticate, a Charlotte signature look that simply oozes elegance and class. The look, which pairs a subtle, neutral-toned smoky eye with a classic nude lip, emulates the understated, refined beauty of icons like Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman. Read on to learn how to add this effortlessly chic look to your beauty wardrobe in just a few steps.

Start with Polished, Glowing Skin

Prep and Prime the Skin

The Sophisticate always starts with an even, polished complexion. Massage Charlotte’s Magic Cream into clean skin to create a smooth, plumped-up base for makeup. Smooth a dab of light-diffusing Wonderglow over the skin and blend well for what Charlotte calls “an instant spotlight effect.”

Apply Foundation and Concealer

To minimize uneven tone and blur imperfections, tap a few dabs of Light Wonder Foundation to the center of the face and blend outwards with the Charlotte Tilbury Foundation Brush. Conceal any remaining blemishes, discoloration, or redness with a small amount of The Retoucher. Pat lightly with your ring finger to blend.

Set with Powder

Using a fluffy powder brush, dust Air Brush Flawless Finish Powder over the T-zone and under the eyes to lock in a perfect, cashmere-soft finish all day.
