"If there is one foundation you should have in your makeup bag, it should be this one."

Foundations are my absolute love language. They're easily one of my favourite beauty products and quite literally create the foundation for a flawless look.

Charlotte Tilbury has always been one of the most well-renowned brands for makeup products, especially when it comes to foundation. The Hollywood Flawless filter is used by multiple celebrities including Billie Eilish.

When the brand launched its newest product, the Beautiful Skin foundation, early this year it was basically a must-try for me. So here's how it went down.

About the product

According to the release, the Beautiful Skin foundation is "infused with innovative ingredients including rose complex, coconut extract and hyaluronic acid, and the new formula promises to deliver hydrating, smoothing, plumping skin benefits!". To put that in simpler terms, it's a foundation that makes your skin look good but is actually good for it too. It is a hydrating formula so this product is basically a God-send for those with dry skin like myself.

The finish is a dewy light to medium finish and comes in 30 shades.

The Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation retails for $65 and is available to purchase from Charlotte Tilbury and MECCA.

The review

By the time I was trying this foundation it was all over my TikTok feed. I was yet to see one bad comment about it so my expectations were high. I chose not to use a primer and simply moisturised my skin so I could see the longevity of the foundation without anything giving it a helping hand.

Using a foundation brush it took about 3 pumps to cover my face and let me tell you, my love for this product was immediate. When you're applying it, it sinks into your skin and becomes an actual filter. The term "your skin but better" gets tossed around a lot within the beauty industry but I think this foundation just bought the phrase and forever owns the rights to it. I definitely felt that my skin has some extra hydration added to it and it looks like it too.

@twobrokechicks Before & After

If you like a natural, glowy finish that covers any imperfections and brightens your complexion, you're going to be obsessed with this. I have the Giorgio Armani foundation which retails for $105 and I would recommend investing in the Charlotte Tilbury one instead. I wear it during the day and for evening events and it works beautifully for both occasions.

When wearing makeup I subconsciously touch my face a lot. It's an annoying habit I have but hey, there are worse things in life. However, it does mean that my foundation doesn't tend to last too long especially when it's a lighter coverage. I'm pleased to report that the Beautiful Skin foundation held up throughout the day and still looked flawless. I noticed no flashback or oxidisation (when foundation changes colour from exposure to oxygen) once applied.

The final verdict

For the love of all things holy, you NEED to try this product. I think it may just be my new favourite and my bank account is pretty happy with that since I don't have to spend another $105 on my previous go-to. If there is one foundation you should have in your makeup bag, it should be this one

You can add me to the list of 5-star reviews and I'll be singing this foundation's praises for some time. I don't have oily skin so I'm not sure how it would go on that complexion; however, the brand states it is suited to all skin types. If you're ever unsure you can always head into MECCA for a sample and see how it fares.

While this product was gifted I will 100% be purchasing it once I run out.
