Create your New Years Eve Look with Charlotte Tilbury!
It’s New Years Eve, the one and only night (apart from your birthday) when glitz, glamour and sparkles are compulsory! With that in mind, and because I felt that I was starting to fall into a bit of a makeup rut, I took a lunchtime stroll around Covent garden and accidently found myself browsing in the newly opened Charlotte Tilbury Boudoir! Boudoir you say? Yes, a whole shop full of just Charlotte Tilbury products and makeup artists on hand to help you recreate some of her signature looks. With that all in mind I figured it was time to master a smouldering eye with a twist or Charlotte’s Nocturnal Cat Eyes look.
Inspired by the hypnotic gaze of wild cats in the night, The Nocturnal Cat Eyes look uses complementary eyeshadow and Kohl pencil duo’s set up to flatter all eye colours and skin tones. Wanting to make this look accessible to everyone, Charlotte has kept products and tools to the minimum. Starting with using clean fingers to pat on the eyeshadow, a blender and smudger brush to create the desired effect and kohl pencil to outline and define the eye area, it was followed by volumes of Full Fat lashes mascara.
Mrs J’s verdict – the creamy and smooth eyeshadow base is really rich in pigment. So whilst I went a bit crazy on attempt number one and two, by the third time I had definitely learnt that less is more! Whilst I’ve started to experiment recently with different coloured Kohl pencils in my waterline, I have firmly stayed put with my ever faithful signature black eyeliner. So, switching to a smoky plum shade was a drastic step for me, which surprisingly, against the speckled aubergine coloured eyeshadow and slight glitter effect in the kohl, it really stood out. At £29 for the duo, this isn’t really a tester kit to be experimenting with. However, if you love your eyeshadows and are looking for a high quality complementary shade then Nocturnal eyes is the one! Each of the four shades are set to complement a particular eye colour, but can be worn by all which is what I proved when I opted for the Green eye look with brown eyes!
