Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita palette
Hey Beauties! If you haven't read my blogpost about meeting Charlotte Tilbury at her beauty range launch in Selfridges click here! The Dolce Vita palette is what I really wanted to get as my first Charlotte Tilbury piece of beauty even before I got there! Meeting her was such a lovely experience, to me she is an icon within the beauty artistry. I was wearing a smokey eye I created using the YSL Marrakesh Sunset palette [Summer 2013 Collection], which she really liked and said my smokey eye looked 'amazing' - coming from your idol it's THE best compliment ever!!!! When I told Charlotte I wanted to get a palette from her 10 Iconic looks, she instantly recommended The Dolce Vita, [yay] I knew it was meant to be!
You can see Charlotte Tilbury creating all of the 10 Iconic Looks on her YouTube channel. Here is how I created The Dolce Vita smokey eye: I always start with a base, MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork is great for this look. Then I applied the brown shade [bottom right - 3.smoke] all over the lid, blending in the coppery shade [top right - 2.enhance] into the socket and over the lid. Mixing the two colours I also applied them under the lower lash line, smoking it out. Then I took the decadent antique gold sparkles [bottom left - 4.pop] just in the middle of the lid and socket to create that trail of sparkles. And finally I applied the cream [top left - 1.prime] on the brow bone to highlight and lift the area. For extra depth I also used a kohl eyeliner smudging it into the eyeshadow. The eyeshadows are stunning, the texture feels like velvet, very luxurious and beautifully pigmented!!
