Hold onto your wallets, kiddos. Whisper of Gilt is making…
To go along with yesterday’s Afternoon Date look, I wanted to share my current go-to Date Night look using some of Charlotte Tilbury’s newest goodies.
My ever-growing Tilbury team now has some new players: the “named by you” Kiss Chase K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick and Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise eye set in Huntress + Amber Moon.
First let’s focus on these Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise eye sets. They come in four shades to complement each eye colour (but of course, you can always mix it up). The set here contains a Huntress Nocturnal Cat Eyeshadow and Amber Moon Rock N Khol eye pencil, meant to complement hazel eyes.
Amber Moon mini Rock N Khol eye pencil is a rich amber liner that glides on smooth, is insanely pigmented and is basically smudge-proof, sweat-proof, crease-proof.
Now this isn’t part of the date night look, but I wanted to show what the liner looks like not paired with a shadow. Keep in mind I have two things working against me here: hooded eyes that crease liners easily AND crepe-y lids.
But I’m happy to report neither are a problem with this liner. I’m able to smooth it out beautifully and it doesn’t transfer on my lid.
The Noctural Cat Eyeshadow in Huntress is really something else. The genius behind the formula is the blackout pigment mixed in with the golden-bronze shimmer.
The black pigment acts as a “backdrop” to really make the gold shimmer pop, much like when you prep your lids with black shadow or pencil to make shimmery pigments stand out.
This is best applied with the fingertip on the lid and the crease, then smoke it out in a V-shape using a blending brush.
You can see how much the black pigment adds a real 3D look to the bronze pigment, and with that amber pencil on top it’s a gorgeous dimensional cat eye look.
You may remember a couple months ago, Charlotte Tilbury “crowd-sourced” the name to two new shades in her K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick and Matte Revolution line. This is Kiss Chase, “it’s a reminder of that naughty game and the lip colour is a pretty, soft berry – it has a perfect allure”.
If you’ve never tried K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick, you are seriously missing out. It is one of the most comfortable and hydrating formulas EVER. It uses extract from the Lipstick Tree, which is apparently a tropical plant. This helps fight against pollutants and protects against UV damage.
But this lipstick is more than that, it’s an ultra-rich creamy lipstick that doesn’t have too much slip. The pigments diffuse light giving your lips a soft glow, and the waxes used really glide over the lips. Honesty, it’s the perfect formula for anyone who is experiencing dry OR maturing lips.
And let’s talk about this new shade, Kiss Chase. It’s a pretty soft berry shade that will really suit any skintone.
So pair those beauties with a few other Tilbury superstars, and you’ve got a killer, sexy date look. I used the Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Sex on Fire Swish & Pop Blusher, Full Fat Lashes mascara and Lip Cheat Liner in Pillowtalk to even out my lip line.
I love the balance in this look, nothing is too overpowering but you are definitely drawn into my eyes and lips.
Plus with a hint of contour and highlight from the Bronze & Glow palette mixed with the pop of colour from the blush, this look is really polished.
Count on Charlotte Tilbury to make some pretty amazing stuff, perfect for a night full of laughs, chats and maybe a smooch or two. This lasted an entire day and (almost) through a work out with only minor creasing with the shadow. The lipstick started wearing off a little after lunch, which is to be expected.
WHAT ARE YOUR WEEKEND PLANS? GOT A HOT DATE?
We’re seeing Deadpool, heading to dinner then maybe making a complicated dessert at home (David Chang inspired).
