At this time of year, it can feel like everything is a bit non-stop. There are events on most nights, and heading somewhere straight after work means a makeup-touchup in the car on the way there. Because of that, I’ve been on the hunt for products which last all day long, well into the night.
I got my hands on Charlotte Tilbury’s The Sophisticate palette a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been a daily go-to since it arrived. With acurated selection of three brows and a neutral bone – the palette is an absolute dream for people like me who love a everything from a chic neutral through to a smoky brown eye.
For day looks, I tend to focus on the top two shadows – I buff the bone shade into my lids and inner corners, and then blend a little of the taupe into my crease and lash line. The whole palette is pretty cool toned, so it’s perfect for my colouring – and it’s really adaptable for amping up day looks into night.
I’d never tried a Charlotte Tilbury palette before, so getting to grips with The Sophisticate has been an absolute dream. Each of the four shadows is well pigmented, and they all apply smoothly with a great colour payoff. Most days, I buff the top right shade into my lid, with a little of the bone in my brow bone and inner corners. The effect is subtly elegant – it provides the perfect amount of definition without feeling too ‘done’, it’s also easy to ramp up the drama, with a little of the lower two shades buffed into the lash line.
The Sophisticate Palette has been such a dreamy product to use, and it’s been a wonderful entry into the (very) glamorous world of Charlotte Tilbury beauty. From the stunning palette packaging to the pitch-perfect shadows inside, this is a classic, I’m going to be reaching for all 2019-long!
