“My new Glowgasm Face Palettes are like painting on joy. The shades glide onto the skin like silk-satin and make you look fresher and smoother so you can look like the most glowing, gorgeous version of you in an instant! ”

Step 1

For the ultimate glowgasm summer eyes to mesmerise, my new Dreamgasm Luxury Palette puts the lights back in your eyes with a euphoric wash of crystal glow. With gorgeous shades of champagne, rose-gold and warm copper bronze, it’s a sunset dreamscape the for the eye, summer in a palette! As with all of my luxury palettes it has the same easy-to-use, four-step prime, enhance, smoke, pop sequence which can be dialled up or down like an old-fashioned telephone so everyone can craft their own perfect smokey look. To create a glowing summer ‘halo’ effect on the eyes, start by taking my Blender Brush and washing the soft champagne prime shade in a windscreen wiper motion back and forwards across the eye-lid.

Step 2

Next, using my Eye Smudger brush, dip it in the soft dreamy gold enhance shade, and work it backwards and forwards along the lash-line and into the socket. Smoke it up with the deep smoke shade in burnished red to add intensity.

Step 3

For a glorious, golden sparkle, press your finger into the pop shade and press onto the centre of the lid for added glow. Finish with a sultry feline flick using my Rock’n’Kohl pencil in Barbarella Brown and lashings and lashings of my Full Fat Lashes mascara.

To help your make-up survive the summer heat in style, once your look is complete it’s important to finish it off with a finely milled powder to lock in your make-up effortlessly and keep everything from slipping in the humidity. My Airbrush Flawless Finish powder is perfect for this – I couldn’t live without it. Once your make-up look is complete, apply Airbrush Flawless Finish with a soft sculpting brush on the T-zone, down the nose, on the chin and across the forehead. I always keep the cheekbones free of powder so that they remain dewy looking and catch the light.

For flawless complexion

I always say you can’t have a beautiful painting without a beautiful canvas and a good skincare routine, with incredible skincare products is so important. The key to magic skin is all about looking after and maintaining the best skin of your life. I often get asked about my own skincare routine, it starts in the morning and the first thing I do to get my instant glow is to double cleanse with my incredible Goddess Cleansing Ritual. I begin with the Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanse, a coconut-oil based, vitamin C boosted skin wonder that melts your  make-up, improves the clarity and radiance of your complexion. I then follow this with my purifying charcoal cleanse. This skin purifier draws out impurities and tackles the deeper-rooted dirt. Helping to purify the skin, it’s an easy cleansing ritual with hard-working ingredients to create that feeling of perfectly-cleansed-skin at home.

Next, I’ll use my Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. The genius ingredients – including vitamin B3, crocus bulb extract, peptides, oils and butters – penetrate deep into the skin using a unique biomimetic vector delivery system, feeding the complexion where it needs it most for a brighter, hydrated looking finish.

I always apply my award-winning Charlotte’s Magic Cream. It has a unique blend of oils and active which I call the Magic 8, including bionymph peptide, hyaluronic acid, camelia oil and vitamins C + E all with a touch of magic. I am never without it; it gives me the perfect glowing base. I then tap in my Magic Eye Rescue underneath the eyes, hydrating and visibly smoothing the skin. To finish I’ll apply either my Wonderglow, a magic brightening skin solution which colour-corrects and instantly blurs, brightens and smooths the appearance of the skin, giving me a gorgeous glowing, dewy-looking complexion.”
