Beauty is all about working with what we have. Thats why I love any products that allow me to look like me… but the very best version of me , of course!
I make it no secret, I have been loving Charlotte Tilbury lately. She makes products that allow you to look naturally pretty. I have been playing around with these three products over the last week and love each item individually but when put together they achieve a beautiful polished lip that is like nothing I have tried before.
The images above show (left) my natural lip and (right) my Charlotte Tilbury lip.
I achieve this natural ‘my lips but better’ look by using:
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk £16.00
Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick £23.00
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in High Society £16.50
I start as I do before applying any lipstick. If you want your lips to look the very best they can, always start by smoothing a layer of lip balm over the entire lip. This helps to prevent any rough patches and in turn helps with the longevity of your products.
I then use Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat to (quite literally!) Re-Shape and Re-size my lips as it promises to! I gently line my lips and then shade them in. This is a modern way of applying a lip liner and prevents the Posh Spice look that was so popular in the 90’s! Applying this way will ensure that the lipstick does not fade during the day leaving you with lined lips.
When you are happy with the Lip Cheat, take your lipstick in shade Bitch Perfect and apply over the top. You can use a lip brush if you prefer but on this particular occasion I applied straight from the bullet.
If you prefer a softer look then you can stop here. By applying the Charlotte Tilbury High Society Lip Lustre you achieve a polished finish with a high gloss shine. If you want to create the illusion of a fuller pout then apply the lip lustre to the centre of the bottom lip only. This helps give a focal point to your lips and the shine you get from the light hitting the centre only makes lips look voluptuous!
I hope you enjoyed reading the first ‘How To’ post from Pretty Honest! I hope you found this useful and if you are looking for some products to create the very best version of yourself then perhaps you may consider these.
Have you tried these Charlotte Tilbury products? Can you recommend any other combinations for me to try? I would love to hear from you all!
Talk to you all soon x
