LOVE THIS! Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in “The Rebel” ($52)
LOVE IT NOW BECAUSE: Wearing this green shadow palette will leave everyone else green with envy.
On this past Monday’s blog, I covered my favorite holiday fashion and beauty trends of the season and you guys wrote me, asking for more details. Seems we all get a little excited when it comes to holiday makeup!
Well, how’s this detail? The #1 must-have holiday product you’ll find in my beauty bag right now is Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in “The Rebel” ($52). It’s THE shadow palette of the season. With one neutral creamy shade as the “Prime” shade, a seafoamy green as the “Enhance” shade, a mossy green as the “Disco” shade, and a true jewel-toned emerald as the “Smoke” shade, this palette’s got your whole eye covered.
So, how come you haven’t heard of this line? Well, Charlotte Tilbury just debuted here in the U.S. back in October, but has already become a superstar in the cosmetics world. Available at Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman, her makeup has quickly become known for its movie star looks and tutorials that every woman can do at home.
She even has video tutorials that make it foolproof to apply seemingly intimidating shades like these. So, while everyone else walks into the party with black smoky eyes or a burgundy lip, you’ll turn heads with eyes that mesmerize!
Try following Charlotte’s tutorial and adding a bit of the glittering disco shade for one of the holiday soirées of the season. Smoke out the eyes with those emerald hues, add a bit of golden bronzer and a nude lip, and there’s no telling if you’ll end up on Santa’s Nice or Naughty list.
Moll’s Bag of Tricks: Charlotte makes it simple to get screen siren eyes every single time. Charlotte’s luxury shadow palettes are color-coded eye shadow palettes that blend seamlessly into 3 looks, taking you from DESK to DUSK to DISCO.
For your DESK look (day look), do the following. STEP 1: Using my EYE BLENDER BRUSH, apply PRIME to the entire eye-lid, with a backwards and forwards ‘windshield wiper’ motion. Then using my EYE SMUDGER BRUSH apply the PRIME shade to the inner corners of the eyes to open them up. STEP 2: Nestle the ENHANCE shade in the outer corner of the eye socket using my EYE SMUDGER BRUSH and blend. Then using my EYE SMUDGER BRUSH apply the ENHANCE shade along the upper and lower lashline.
For the DUSK look (evening look), repeat STEPS 1 and 2. STEP 3: Using my EYE SMUDGER BRUSH, blend the SMOKE shade from the outer corner of the eye, upwards and into the socket. Then using my EYE SMUDGER BRUSH apply the SMOKE shade along the upper lashline and into the socket in a half-moon shape. Also run it along the lower lashline.
And to add some drama for nighttime, try this tip for Charlotte’s DISCO look: Repeat STEPS 1, 2 and 3. STEP 4: With your ring finger, apply the POP shade to the center of your eyelid for amped up glamour.
Warning: This kind of glamour will make everyone else green with envy.
