Bless celebrity and editorial makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. The iconic beauty guru behind oodles of the most famous red carpet and cover looks around happens to have a keen understanding of the current trend for wanting a real life social media filter for the face — and has created the high-tech products to give you that perfected glow and perfect-for-selfies shiny lips in real life.
Earlier this year, Tilbury launched a number of products in her Beauty Filter collection starting with the now cult-fave Hollywood Flawless Filter. Then came a number of new eyeshadow quads and a killer mascara. And now there are two new additions: the Pretty Youth Glow Filter and the Collagen Lip Bath. The best part: these new goodies were used at the Met Gala on Amal Clooney, Gabrielle Union, Salma Hayek and even in the Royal Wedding look for Lady Kitty Spencer.
First, you have the Pretty Youth Glow Filter and corresponding Cheek Hug Brush — a cream to powder blush and highlight duo that comes in two shades, Pretty Fresh and Seduce Blush. Charlotte says that these two cheeky prods are meant to give you a “just run through the meadow flush.” Pretty Fresh is a coral pink blush with a pearlescent pink highlighter, while seduce blush is more of a nude pink with a champagne rose highlight. Regardless of the shade you choose, all you have to do is apply in a upward motion with the brush for a seamless, soft-focusing and blurring glow in an instant. For low-key beauty ladies, this is certain to be a gamechanger.
Then, you have the Collagen Lip Bath, which is a hybrid lip enhancer that bathes your pout in marine collagen, mustard sprout extract, coconut oil, pearlescent pigments and peppermint oil extract for a plumped, smooth, glossy and nourished pucker.
Together they’ll give you that glamorous vacation vibe we’re all trying to capture. So never fear, Tilbury is here to ensure that you look your best while living your best life this summer — and that you don’t have to spend a lot of time or effort to do so.
