Charlotte Tilbury • Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation SPF15

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Perfect Skin Foundation spf15
Charlotte Tilbury Make-up is a brand that has really taken over in recent months and with its luxurious, trendy, professional image everyone who loves make-up and beauty wants to own a piece of it. I for one did. On a recent trip to London, I noticed how it dominated the beauty hall in Selfridges London and its own studio in Fenwick Bond St. The Charlotte Tilbury counters are simply stunning and anyone with a rose gold addiction like myself, shall be in their glory. 
I already own a Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad which I love and wrote all about it here as well as more information on Charlotte Tilbury herself and her incredible make-up line. The Light Wonder foundation was top of my shopping list after hearing many good reports about it so I was excited to finally get coloured matched and see for myself how it performed. 

Light Wonder Foundation is an air light formula that illuminates, smoothes, hydrates, minimises pores and reduces wrinkles for perfect skin. So perfect coverage all in a light weight formula. Oil-free and suitable for dry, normal and combination skin types with an Spf15, 40ml. 

The packaging once again like all Charlotte Tilbury products is stunning and I love the rose gold hardware and the cute little star thats drawn on all her boxes ... it really is the small things!

To apply .... Light wonder can be used in a few different ways for different finishes. Shake well and squeeze a small amount onto the back of your hand and using either a foundation brush or your fingertips blend into your skin. For a natural day look blend into your skin from the centre of the face outwards like a tint and for a more glamorous look apply more to areas that need it and really buff into the skin with a brush for a flawless finish. You can even use this on the body too! 

There are 10 shades to choose from and I suggest that you get colour matched as they are quite hard to judge. I was matched to Shade 4 Fair which is perfect for the summer months.

The formula is a thin liquid so it's very easy to blend into the skin and not look like you are wearing a foundation, just a nice tint that gives you amazing natural looking skin. 

The finish of this foundation is very natural but buildable to a medium coverage and gives a skin perfect, HD look that is not too matte and not too glowy - just the perfect inbetween. It looks invisible on the skin but still manages to blur pores and imperfections and really makes your skin look flawless, almost airbrushed, as you can from these close up shots below! I have used Mac Mineralise Skin Finish powder to set it which has added a little more coverage to give that 'good skin day' look. (It really is magic as my skin looks incredible even if I do say so myself?!)

I just LOVE this foundation and love even more that it's in a lightweight plastic bottle and is a 40ml size making this the ideal portable, long lasting foundation! A true sign that it really has been designed by a make-up artist. 

Now I love my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundations but this one can now sit alongside them as one of my favourites. I totally agree with all the claims that this foundation blurs over any imperfections on the skin to really perfect and enhance it. I really like this foundation for those 'good skin days' as it makes your skin look 'well rested' with its healthy looking finish. It doesn't turn greasy or shiny throughout the day and just stays flawless looking. 

This is the perfect summer foundation especially for those times when you need a little more than a tinted moisturiser but don't want a full on foundation and all with added sun protection too. If you want a fast magic potion for achieving flawless, natural looking skin then here it is!

Available in store and online at Selfridges & Charlotte Tilbury priced at £32 for 40ml.
