I recently attended a Charlotte Tilbury evening in Belfast. A chance for customers of the brand to sit back enjoy a beautiful meal in The Ivory, Belfast. Plus to watch a live demo and ask questions etc. The evening was a huge success and I thoroughly enjoyed rekindling my love for the brand. I recently had my makeup done on counter with a fellow blogger the ever so fabulous Amy from Cosmetics Junkie. Whilst there I purchased an eyeshadow palette as I was so impressed by the colour payoff and price. Having played with said palette for a number of weeks I decided to make another purchase on the event night. This time I opted for the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette. What a fantastic choice that was. I wanted something different, something I could experiment with and something that would help turn this mum of 6 into something a bit more presentable for evenings out.
Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette
If you haven’t tried one of the palettes before you should pop to counter and have a demo or a swatch. They are highly pigmented thus giving a lovely colour pay off. Charlotte has cleverly designed the palette in a way that its easy to use for people not so fabulous at makeup. You use it as a clock and you can as Charlotte calls it dial it up by adding the sparkling pop colour for a more dramatic look. You start on the top left hand corner and use this as your base colour. Moving over to top right you apply this as your crease colour. Then down to the bottom two. The darker shade is the more gorgeous deep outer eye colour whilst the lighter sparkling colour is your dial it up colour. I absolutely adore the thought process behind this and its pretty much foolproof. As the colours are pigmented start by applying a smaller amount and then working up to a more liberal application. I’m a huge fan of this palette and how versatile it is. It gives the most stunning smokey eye and is perfect to use with the eyes to mesmerise in the shade Marie Antoinette.
I cant wait to expand my palette collection by adding the pillow talk quad in if it comes back in stock soon. Are you a CT fan?
