For an Angel’s complexion
Charlotte will prep the Angel’s skin with her Magic Skincare Trio for a healthy, lit-from-within glowing angel complexion:
1. First, she'll use her secret to supermodel skin, Instant Magic Dry Sheet Facial Mask, for a glowing radiant looking complexion. The genius ingredients including vitamin B3, crocus bulb extract, peptides, oils and butters penetrate deep in to the skin providing nourishing nutrients where skin needs it most
2. Charlotte will then apply her award-winning Magic Cream, made up of oils and actives that feed the skin. Hyaluronic acid and peptides that give a plump-effect to the complexion, vitamin C and E that brighten and soothe the skin, and Frangipani and Aloe Vera. It’s Charlotte’s secret to the ultimate runway glow!
3. Next, CT will gently tap her Magic Eye Rescue to revitalise the eye area. The time released retinol molecules in the formula resurface the skin around the eye to help your eyes appear younger and more radiant, hour-by-hour.
For flawless, poreless Angel skin
4. Charlotte will apply her ultimate glow primer, Wonderglow to the model’s skin. The primer is full of Hyaluronic Acid and has a genius fluorescent core that redirects light to more flattering angles of the face.
5. Then, she'll buff on her Light Wonder Foundation for a natural skin but better effect and in a shade which was slightly warmer than their natural skin tone too, to give them a healthy glow.
6. For any areas which needed a little extra coverage, Charlotte will go in with her Magic Away Concealer to conceal any redness or blemishes, brighten darkness, smooth fine lines and hide the appearance of pores
7. Next up, is her Hollywood Flawless Filter. With the versatility of a primer, the mega-watt glow of a highlighter, and the perfecting properties of your favourite digital filter, it soft-focuses and instantly illuminates.
For a naturally killer contour and ethereal glow
8. Charlotte wants every Angel to have a natural contour and ethereal glow under the lights of the runway. For this, she'll use her Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette to sculpt the face and carve out killer cheekbones.
9. Then, she'll up the glow ante even more using her ‘Diva Light’ Beauty Light Wand. The rose-gold highlighter gives a soft-focussed glow to the cheekbones that plays with the light beautifully.
10. To finish the complexion, Charlotte will dust her Airbrush Flawless Finish powder onto the T-area, soft focusing and blurring away any lines and imperfections and creating a soft micro-fine cashmere veil to the complexion.
For the ultimate natural supermodel finish
11. To reveal the shape of each Angel's brows, CT will brush up using her magical Brow Lift tool and then use the soft pencil to fill in any gaps using upward strokes.
For the supermodel exagger-eyes eye filter
12. To start, Charlotte will curl the eyelashes for extra definition, using her Life-Changing Lashes curler.
13. For the ultimate supermodel eye, Charlotte actually brought back her sell-out sensation Exagger-Eyes Luxury Palette especially. Part of her Beauty Filters collection, the palette aims to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter just like an Instagram filter.
14. To enhance the Angel eye look, Charlotte will use Eyes to Mesmerise in Rose Gold. Using a smudger brush, Charlotte applied the metallic rose gold shade underneath the lower lash line to make the eyes naturally pop.
16. For extra richness and depth, if needed, Charlotte will apply her Colour Chameleon pencil in Amber Haze along the lash line.
17. To complete the supermodel eye filter look, Charlotte will opt for lashings of mascara, to give a dreamy Angel flutter in seconds!
For natural, pillowy, supermodel lips
18. For plump lips, Charlotte will begin by shaping the lips with her iconic Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk. The best-selling lip liner, loved by beauty editors and influencers all over the world, mimics the natural shade of your lips and gives you the most pillowy pout.
19. She'll then applied Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream in Showstopper. A luscious, peachy, pink matte that makes the lips look instantly fuller and wider.
20. To finish, Charlotte will apply her Collagen Lip Bath for a natural dewy veil of gloss on top of the Velvet Matte Cream.
