Charlotte Tilbury • Magic Foundation

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
Charlotte Tilbury is most definitely the make-up brand of the moment and I for one am a huge fan as I don't think she can actually make a bad product. She has every A-Lister fighting over her as Charlotte's skill and whole perception of makeup is inspiring. I first heard about this new foundation launch whilst being at a counter in London last month. They had a huge sampling campaign prior to the launch which I think catapulted it into the success it has been as being able to try something before its even out makes it even more special. That and actually getting foundation shopping right. I am a big fan of the Light Wonder Foundation in the collection (here) so I had high hopes of liking this one too, although both are very different from each other.

The new Magic Foundation is a flawless, pore less, long lasting full coverage foundation with SPF15. The sampling was a big success in my case, because as you see I went out and bought the full size. The packaging alone, like all of her products is just gorgeous!

The Magic Foundation is designed to transform skin for all agesskin tones and skin types. Charlotte spent 5 years in the making of this to create a 'hyper-intelligent' formula that gives a full coverage yet feels weightless, has many anti-aging properties and protects like luxury skincareIt has been designed to conceal imperfectionsglide on with ease and feel like a second skin. Whether your skin needs perfecting or you struggle with acne, rosacea, scarring etc, this foundation will still give you perfect looking skin.

The Full Benefits of using this Magic Foundation:- Helps tighten pores, reduce shine, minimise oil production, cover discolouration and imperfections, help reduce the production of melanocytes that cause pigmentation, smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles in just 1 hour, reduce ages spots by 75%, rejuvenate the skin to make it look more rested and refreshed

Now that is magic for a make-up product to be able to help and target all of those issues! It contains some magical ingredients to be able to do all of these things such as Laricyl which firms, tightens and hydrates, Hyaluronic Filling Spheres that plump up the skin in an instant  (hyaluronic acid is one of the best anti-aging ingredients there is), Super charged Vitamin C a powerful antioxidant to fight the signs of ageing and SPF15 to keep us protected.

Shade 3 is a neutral beige for light skin tones with cool undertones. When you order online you also get three shade samples alongside your chosen shade (I got no's 2,3 & 4) to check that you positively have the best match possible. What a genius idea and again proof that it has been designed my a real make-up artist.

Being honest, I didn't fall in love with the foundation straight away as I found it took some working into the skin as the consistency is quite thick but that is when I actually read up on this and realised that this is not just make-up, it's a high powered skincare product. You realise this once you start to blend into your skin as it takes time to work with it and help it reach its full potential. 

Charlotte has posted some incredible videos online (link!) of her applying this foundation to a few different skin types so you can see just how this product transforms peoples skin  - literally like magic. 

It wasn't until I took some photographs of me wearing this foundation that I noticed just how much of a difference it had made to the way my skin looked. I mean I look totally airbrushed but I can 100% guarantee that this image was just taken in bright natural sunshine with no editing what so ever .... even I thought WOW. That's a pretty impressive product right there!

The way you apply this to your skin is key to getting the best results possible. Make sure that your skin is well prepped before application (moisturised, primed) and apply with a foundation buffing brush, beauty blender or just your fingers, whatever your favourite application method is. I personally prefer to buff this into my skin with a large brush then use my beauty blender to really blend this into my skin. 

The coverage is quite something. However you apply this it is fool proof and for something that covers so well, just feels so incredibly light and when you touch your skin, it still feels like skin. It sets to a velvet matte finish whilst still being luminous and glowing and you don't even need to use a setting powder with this due to the finish. You actually don't even need to use much concealer either as it cancels out all red and blue tones in the skin perfectly. It has great staying power and stays looking perfect the whole time you are wearing it.

If you are not a fan of a full coverage look then this wont be for you and Light Wonder would work better being a much more natural tint. But if you are looking for something a bit special that shall treat your skin and do all the work for you then you should definitely go and get a sample and see the results for yourself.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
Magic Foundation is £29.50 and available from all Charlotte Tilbury Counters and CharlotteTilbury.com.
