Life is Golden

My life in make-up is 100% gold, not just any gold, Charlotte Tilbury gold!

It all started with a voucher I received a couple of years ago for Harvey Nichols in Leeds. A family member gave me it as a birthday present and recommended I visit the CT counter in store.

After that I was converted.

My first purchases were a lipstick in Penelope Pink and the Cheek to Chic blush in Love is the drug which became my everyday favourites. Since then, I’ve changed my Cheek to Chic shade to First Love as I feel it compliments my skin tone better, although both shades are lovely!


As you can see, my collection has grown a fair bit! Luckily, a lot of it has been through birthday and Christmas presents so I haven’t splurged too much (maybe).


I received a Dreamy Look Clutch for Christmas, which I love! The contents included the Dolce Vita eye shadow palette (my fave), a lipstick called Secret Selma, small versions of Legendary Lashes, Rock ‘N’ Kohl and Lip Cheat in shade Pillow Talk.

I adore this look. The eye shadows have a rose gold, coppery feel to them and really bring out my blue eyes. I also love the lipstick, it’s darker than my everyday colour but it’s brilliant for special occasions. The mascara is also amazing! As soon as it runs out I am buying the larger version, my lashes are so much fuller and longer when I’m wearing it.



Light wonder is definitely one of my favourite ever foundations. The name says it all, it’s light and it’s wonderful!

It glides on so easily and instantly brightens and smooths my complexion. A lot of people like their foundations quite think, so it might not be for everyone as it’s quite thin, but I’d definitely recommend giving it a try.

Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Does it even need an introduction? Possibly the best product on the market right now.

As you can see from the photo, I love the bronzer! In the past I’ve struggled with bronzers, they’re either too orangey for my complexion or simply too dark. This shade works perfectly with my skin tone.

I keep my make-up to a minimum day to day, and it’s brilliant for adding some colour. For a night out, I build it up and contour my complexion. The shimmer is also lovely for adding extra sparkle and accentuating my features.

And here’s the finished result! Life is definitely better when it’s golden!
