Charlotte Tilbury Inspired Makeup

I am a total YouTube beauty-world junkie. Since probably 2008, I have been subscribed to two dozen or so channels promoting all things beauty and fashion. There’s nothing like unwinding to a ‘Favorites’ or ‘Empties’ video and the subsequent shopping frenzy that ensues…

Lately, I have been very into Charlotte Tilbury YouTube videos – I love a British accent and she describes her makeup and how its applied in a really informative and educational way. I especially love the video where she recreates Amal Clooney’s wedding makeup. The makeup isn’t particularly standout or unique, but really just enhances the model’s natural beauty and gives off a romantic, glow-y vibe. Now, I look nothing like the model, but she appears to be around my skin color and after watching the video over and over, I was tempted to try it out. I purchased some of the products used in the actual tutorial and shopped my stash for the rest and I’m pretty pleased with the results! While the product list may seem long, it really is an easy look to accomplish. I honestly did this makeup with my one-year-old in my lap, grabbing at all of my products 🙂

I like making the most of my products with multi-tasking. Highlighters can make great shadows, like my Estee Lauder Illuminating Gelee and bronzers are often my go-to crease shadows, like my favorite matte MAC Give Me Sun!

Have you ever been inspired by any celebrity makeup looks? Wouldn’t it be amazing if all celebrity makeup artists provided step-by-step tutorials of their iconic celebrity looks? In today’s age of social media driven consumerism, I wouldn’t be surprised if more and more started doing the same.
