In My Kit: Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess

There aren’t many all-in-one makeup palettes or kits on the market that actually deliver what they promise, but Charlotte Tilbury has really nailed it. In my series of ‘in my kit’ posts, I share some of my favourite products that actually deserve to be described as having a cult following; and tell you how to use them. Today, it’s Charlotte Tilbury’s Golden Goddess kit.

As you know, my signature makeup looks are all about super-clean skin and barely-there colour. But there are few people who deliver all-out glamour better than Charlotte Tilbury. And her eponymous makeup line has allowed fans to buy her signature looks right off the counter, with full looks available to purchase as kits. While creating a ‘look’ in this way is really hard to get right, Charlotte has absolutely nailed it, and her collections are perfect for achieving a look in a hurry, or for gifting. (They are also beloved by boyfriends and husbands who know they’re going to get it right by buying and gifting these cleverly packaged collections for a special occasion.)

My favourite of Charlotte Tilbury’s looks is her Golden Goddess collection. Perfect for creating a bronzed right-off-beach look at any time of year, you can buy individual pieces from the collection or go for the whole package for £165. Included is a Luxury Palette in Golden Goddess with gorgeous bronze, gold and champagne tones, The Classic Eyeliner in Sophia, Full Far Lashes Mascara in Glossy Black, Cheek to Chic Blusher in Ecstasy and Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk, KISSING Lipstick in Stoned Rose, a warm coral pink to set off the statement bronzed smoky eye perfectly and Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in Ibiza Nights.

How To Wear It

The great thing about Charlotte’s kits is that if you use them as instructed (check out her video tutorials) you can achieve an all-out party look with ease. Personally, I love having a variety of products and cherry-picking the one focal area to create a strong eye or lip. From this kit, I love the eye makeup products for creating a soft and sultry burnt smoky eye. Use a little of the champagne-toned shadow under the lower lash line to soften the look and create a more lived-in look.

Products from Charlotte Tilbury’s Golden Goddess Signature Look start at £16, or you can buy the complete look for £165
