charlotte tilbury natural look kit

I’m not implying the days of 45 minute make-up routines are behind us (when the occasion calls for it hey) but shout out to Charlotte Tilbury for making getting out the door in the morning easier with these beauty inspiration kits.

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with founders of the brand, NudeStix to hear their story behind why this beauty revolution was set to be a part of ever woman’s make up bag. Sure, we love our luxurious palettes and bullets of bright and bold colour — but some most days we just want to look, simply pretty.

nude smokey look

For someone who’s a bit of a beauty hoarder I don’t really mix up my beauty looks as much as I should. Awful, I know! I have been trying a new look lately but there will be more on that later. For now, check out the products I’m using for these two beauty looks when I’m strapped for time.

These are the products you’ll need for both looks. Gotta love multi-taskers, non? The base for both looks involves Givenchy Foundation for a matte but glowing base and Dior’s Iconic Overcurl Mascara for volume and curl.

1. Givenchy – Teint Couture Foundation

2. Shu Uemura – Tint in Gelato in Cassis Delight

3. Benefit – they’re Real! Push-Up Liner

4. Diorshow – Iconic OverCurl Mascara

5. Dior – Addict Extreme Lipstick in Mirage

6. Lancome – Blush Subtil Palette

The first look is as easy as pie. Base as above with Shu Uemura’s Tint in Gelato in Cassis Delight on the lips and a cheeks. It’s my favourite lip and cheek product by far. Keep this badboy in your purse for beauty emergencies.

This look is all about the eyes. Using Benefit’s they’re Real! Push Up Liner I apply it to the lower and upper lash line, as well as the waterline.

For the cheeks I use Lancome’s Blush Subtil palette in Nectar Lace — bronzer, blush and a little highlighter for good measure.

For the lip I have pretty much one go-to nude lippie for a balm-like finish. Dior’s Addict Extreme Lipstick in Mirage is perfect for olive-toned ladies like myself. It has just enough caramel and pink in it to look natural but healthy.

Which is your fave? Ya’ll know I’m a red-lip aficionado but recently I’m all about the nude-lip, lined up combo!
