Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Foundation


I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect foundation and while I have a few trusted favourites, I'm always excited to put newbies to the test! I'm a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury and her make-up collection already -  I love following her on Instagram and she always speaks so passionately about her products in her videos! So,when her new 'Magic Foundation' was released earlier this year, I was dying to try it out!

I've been wearing it recently both day and night and I am really impressed so far! Two pumps is all you need for full, flawless coverage. The formula looks thick when it comes out of the bottle but magically melts into the skin upon application.

Although it gives full coverage, it doesn't feel mask-like at all and it's particularly good for reducing redness in an instant. Packed with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C, it left my skin feeling super fresh. It's not drying either, meaning you can easily top up during the day if you want a little more coverage to take the look from day to night. 


There's 15 shades available with something to suit every skin-tone. It can be daunting trying to select the correct foundation shade so I made sure to ask for lots of advice on counter! I eventually settled with 4.5 which is a perfect fit! 

In terms of application, I find a buffing brush like the blank canvas F20 works best for a flawless finish - but the formula works equally well on a beauty blender or your fingertips!

Another recent purchase is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette above. I popped the first shade 'Dim' over the Magic Foundation and they worked really well together - my make-up stayed in  place all night without the need for topping up!

These two additions will definitely be regulars in my routine over the festive season :)

Next on my wishlist is Charlotte's Mini Miracle Wand! Has anyone tried it? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
