So as I sit here writing this, at an uncomfortable and slightly irritable 39+ weeks pregnant, one of the few joys I have left in life at present is the indulgence of numerous luxury samples and tester pots I picked up at the Fenwick Beauty Hall “Meet the Experts” event last month. With heartburn destroying any form of enjoyment I once had in food, and my legs slowly giving way under my colossal and daily accruing weight, my skin and makeup on the other hand have never looked better! One of my favourites from the week long event back in May was attending the Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Masterclass which focussed on getting your glow on for the summer.

This year more than ever I have noticed a strong trend not only in the media and on celebs, but also for many of my clients with a desire for a dewy and healthy looking complexion. Out with the heavy and matte and In with the radiant and bare faced beauty. Real skin, perhaps not warts and all but polished up enough to hide the imperfections and enhance natural features; its time to let those gorgeous freckles shine through!

So how do you get amazing “no makeup” makeup and a glow that any pregnant lady would envy? Look no further than the #Glomo range from Charlotte Tilbury. With so much more than a few bronzers and highlighters, taking beauty a step deeper with some unbelievable pots and potions; the thick and hydrating Magic Eye Rescue Cream, the rich and radiant Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask, and the wonderfully award winning Wonder Glow Skin Primer.

The gorgeous little goodie bag I received at the masterclass contained samples of these products and wow did they revive my tired and fed up face! My favourite find from the range had to be the Wonder Glow Skin Primer, which glided on a light liquid gold, enlightening my dull, pale foundation like stepping out of a 5star spa break. It’s rare to find a product described as “glowing” or “illuminating” when you’re this fair skinned, one which doesn’t leave you tangoed or a metallic vision of the tin man! With this more of a translucent than pigmented liquid in a champagne shade it really does compliment any skin tone. To my delight and total surprise these products are just as brilliant as all the hype makes out and in my opinion 100% worth the price.

The event I attended not only showcased the inner workings of summer beauty but also highlighted a handy little all-in-one palette; the ideal solution if you like a quick and fuss free beauty regime with minimal products to keep your makeup bags light while travelling. The limited edition Instant Look in a Palette – Beauty Glow is just the ticket. As expertly demonstrated during the masterclass, it contains 7 powder cosmetics in a range of glowing rose gold and bronze shades to enhance any complexion and skin tone. Apply to eyes, face and cheeks to achieve a super quick and gorgeous healthy summer look in under 5 minutes.

To mention the event itself, which was a real treat for a Friday evening after a long and busy week. Greeted with a cocktail and a goodie bag (don’t we all love a good goodie bag!), seated for a live 30 minute model demonstration of how to get the best use from the products in the new range expertly narrated by one of the senior artists Sarina. A try of the Goodness Skin Clay Mask on the back of one hand, which I would like to mention I could feel the different in softness for the following week (but leaving the other haggard old hand feeling instantly aged in comparison!) Followed by a personal appointment with one of the artists on the counter showing the looks you can achieve yourself with the new palette. With the cost of a ticket at a bargain £10 which is also redeemable against any purchase I would highly recommend making a girls night in the diary for the next one. Future events will be advertised both in store at the Charlotte Tilbury counter and on the Fenwick website so ill be keeping an eye out!

As fate would have it, as I’m writing this review I receive an email from Charlotte Tilbury (not in person, how I wish!) regarding their current competition. Like the sound of the products I’ve described? Simply visit the website and fill in your details before Wednesday 21st June to be in with a chance of winning the new #Glomo range!
