Today I am showcasing my Dewy flawless skin and this is due to trying out the Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood flawless filter! I always am complimented on how flawless my makeup looks whilst using Charlotte Tilbury’s products and using this filter was no different. The Hollywood flawless filter is a combination of a versatile primer and the mega-watt glow of a highlighter. This filter gives off the effects of a digital filter, whilst soft focusing and illuminating the skin so lines and pores appear smoother. What makes this Hollywood filter so magical? Charlotte says
‘The ultimate high gloss, high glow celebrity-skin-filter-in-a-bottle! This was born on the red carpet makeup, inspired by technology, for real life, in real time that looks amazing on-screen or off. Airbrush polymers roll over your complexion for a poreless-looking, creamy finish. Glossy Oil is a lightweight moisturising oil that reflects and adds light to your face where you need it. And milled powders soft focus, makes lines and pores appear smoother which means it only ever looks as amazing in real life, as it does on camera.’
For application, I chose to use shade 6, which is Warm Amber for deep skin tones. I applied the filter to the face with a beauty blender, especially focusing on my cheeks and the bridge of my nose, which are the area, which I would like to highlight the most. The Hollywood filter can be used alone or alongside your chosen foundation to give an extra glow. To finish my look, I applied the Magic foundation with a beauty blender on top of the Hollywood filter foundation. My chosen shade is 9, which is deep golden amber for deep to dark skin tones with golden undertones. I would say this foundation is a medium coverage but is buildable if you do want full coverage. I have slight scarring on my right cheek from pimples and spots and this foundation did coverage this after building the foundation layer on my cheeks. The foundation is lightweight and leaves a flawless finish without being too cakey. But why is this foundation magical?

I absolutely love this powder and have been using this powder over the last year! This powder is my go-to setting powder and is definitely a staple piece in my makeup bag. To finish of my natural look I take my favourite lipgloss, the Charlotte Tilbury lip lustre in candy darling, which is a sheer fuschia shade lipgloss. I love how juicy and sexy this lipgloss makes my lips look! Despite having very dry skins and lips, I do not actually need a primer for this lipgloss as what is magical about this gloss is that the anti-oxidant Lotus Flower extract, which hydrates protects and soothes your lips for a perfect lacquered finish. The colour stays in place for 6 hours with no transfer, giving your lip colour longevity if you are out for a night on the town. Leaving your lips feeling gorgeous, as this gloss is a non-sticky texture. I adore this gloss and it has become a staple piece in my handbag!
