The Perfect Pair | Charlotte Tilbury Palette & Wayne Goss Brush

Friday, July 07, 2017

There's no denying the absolute pleasure of having a high-end palette in your stash and paired with a luxury makeup brush is about as princess as you can get in my beauty world. I'm not saying you need both of these products. I'm not saying you need one or the other. What I am saying is, together they work beautifully and bring out the best of each other! And the result is majestic!

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow - Light To Medium | post & swatches doesn't need any introduction and is one of the most precious makeup items in my collection. Not only is it packaged beautifully, it also costs as much as a week's worth of groceries. It contains a bronzer shade which is just a touch or two darker than my skin tone, so I use it when I want a very natural contour or a little bit of colour across my face. This is the best product I have tried for a truly natural looking sculpted makeup look because it's not obvious or detectable in the way other contour shades are. The highlighter shade is a gorgeous subtle champagne tone that is as finely milled as you'd like and looks wonderful on the skin. It doesn't contain any large shimmer particles so it reflects the light without looking garish. Using this palette always makes me feel super special because it is such a precious palette but also because it looks so polished and seamless on my face.

Wayne Goss Brush No.2 Powder Brush | post is a hand-crafted natural bristle brush, made from cruelty-free blue squirrel hair. It has a super soft tapered head which is neither too large nor too small, making it perfect for fitting under the eyes or in the hollows of the cheek. This powder brush can be used for a multitude of purposes but for me I love to use it with the Filmstar Palette the most because it just makes the product look even better and more flawlessly applied. I use the brush head straight on with the bronzer shade and it places the colour perfectly, giving me the perfect undetectable contour. I then use the side of the bristles to apply the highlighter shade and find this brush doesn't pick up too much product and helps diffuse it to stop it looking overdone or too unnatural. I've tried this brush with other products and it always proves itself to be a worthy investment but I absolutely adore how well it works with the Filmstar.

I feel like if you're going to splurge on the palette, it's great to have a worthy tool to use it with. And good makeup brushes are always a sensible investment if you can afford to splurge on them. They last for years with good care and make makeup application all the more pleasurable if you ask me ;)

Do you own either of these or are they on your wish list? What luxury products do you love? Do you have any princess products that aren't really necessary but you just love? I'd love to know...
