Charlotte Tilbury - The Golden Goddess Look


If you read my recent Charlotte Tilbury post, you will have seen that I was kindly gifted The Golden Goddess Kit (£165 at CharlotteTilbury.com). I asked on Instagram, @suzyheartsbeauty if you're not already following ;), to see if people would be interested in seeing this look on my pale skin and I got some good responses for this so here we are! I was definitely interested in seeing how this would look because when you think golden goddess, you kind of associate that with a bronzed, tanned skin really!


I prepared my base with Charlotte Tilbury's Wonder Glow (£38.50 at CharlotteTilbury.com), Magic Foundation in Shade 1 (£29.50 at CharlotteTilbury.com), Mini Miracle Wand in Shade 1 (£29 at CharlotteTilbury.com) Airbrush Flawless Finish (£33 at CharlotteTilbury.com). I've been loving all of these products for ages so had to start off my Charlotte Tilbury look with those!


I then set to work applying all of The Golden Goddess products whilst following Charlotte's video guide. I started off by creating the daytime look first.


I then dialled it up for a more intense, night out look, using Charlotte's instructions and I'm really happy with how this looks on me! As always, I loved all of the products and have tried them all before really anyway in different shades as I have a lot of her products already. Amazing formulas, amazing shades!

What do you think of this Golden Goddess look?

Feelin' Peachy


I got my hands on the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette when it finally launched in the UK and I've been absolutely loving it! Well done if you managed to get it too, it's such a gorgeous palette. I thought I'd show you some of the looks I've been wearing and what products I've been pairing it with. Peach hues are amazing for Spring time! The palette is currently out of stock on Debenhams.com but here's the link in case it comes back in stock, or it may be possible to pick it up in some stores. 



For this eye look, I took Puree through the crease, Bellini all over the lid, a bit of Peaches 'N Cream mixed with White Peach over the brow bone and a pop of Luscious in the inner corner. I paired this with the Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera (£16 at Cult Beauty) on the cheeks and the Clinique Pop Lip in Melon Pop (£16 at Boots) on the lips.



In my second eye look, I blended Cobbler through the crease and Just Peachy all over the lid. I finished this with a pop of Luscious in the inner corner again. On my cheeks I'm wearing the H&M Powder Blusher in Cantaloupe (£6.99 at H&M) and my amazing new discovery, the NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie (£5 at Boots) on the lips. 

Hope you liked my looks! Even if you can't get hold of this palette, I definitely recommend giving peachy shades a go this Spring. It's so bright, glowy and youthful!

What kind of makeup looks are you loving this Spring?

Fenwick Beauty Week Newcastle - 7th to 15th May 2016


Fenwick Beauty Week starts on Saturday 7th May until Sunday 15th May and there's so much going on in Newcastle! Myself and a whole load of other North East bloggers were kindly invited to a preview of the event and got to pick a few of the beauty hall counters to visit to get an idea of what's happening over the next week.








First up I chose to go to the Charlotte Tilbury counter. I'm sure you aren't surprised by this, given how obsessed I am with Charlotte and her brand! We got to watch the Dolce Vita look being created and it was amazing! We were shown a daytime version and then a dialled up version for night time. Both looks were gorgeous and it was great to be shown exactly how to achieve the looks. I definitely need to have a makeover done on counter some day as Team Tilbury are extremely skilled at what they do!






Next I headed to the Bobbi Brown counter where I played model (ha!) to showcase the new Beach Nudes collection. The new Sunkissed Nude Eye Palette was used on me and it has some stunning shades including a sparkly pink-gold shade! I also got the chance to meet the fab Shivani from Cloud in a Teacup who I've spoken to quite a bit on instagram but hadn't met in real life yet. Shivani was just as lovely as I expected and I was glad that there was time to apply some of the products to her too. Doesn't the gold look amazing on her? Also, how fab is her new fringe? So jealous of how thick and healthy her hair is!

The day I met Charlotte Tilbury


Last week, Charlotte Tilbury was in Newcastle to celebrate the launch of her counter in Fenwicks. There were tickets available to meet her and even a competition to get a makeover using one of her signature looks and head down the catwalk with the other models. This all sounded fab and then the most amazing email popped into my inbox. I had been invited, along with a few other bloggers and some press, to spend a few hours with Charlotte Tilbury prior to the public event! I honestly couldn't believe my luck! I'm such a massive Charlotte Tilbury fan so this was an absolute dream come true.





On the actual day, we were led to a beautifully decorated room, filled with gorgeous red roses and Charlotte's full range of products. There were posters of her signature looks around the room and it didn't feel real that I was about to meet Charlotte Tilbury!






When Charlotte walked into the room, it was so surreal! After watching her YouTube videos and buying all of her products for the last few years, I was now actually getting to meet her! She was instantly lovely, taking the time to walk around the table, shaking our hands and asking our names. She then went on to spend the next few hours going through every single product in her line and talking us through the ideas behind the products.

I already own a lot of her products, you'll know this if you follow me on Instagram in particular, but now I want EVERYTHING! Charlotte told us that she often spends years developing products and making sure the formulas and packaging are perfect before she releases them. She will not make a product that is satisfactory, everything has to be just right otherwise it's not happening! I love that this really is Charlotte's brand and she hasn't just put her name on something made by someone else.








Charlotte had us all captiviated with her passion for makeup and her own products. She was hilarious too, she had some funny stories to tell us. You wouldn't believe the places some women use her Magic Cream. Yes, really!

Charlotte is everything I hoped she would be. She is an incredible and inspiring lady and I feel so privileged to have met her.


To top this wonderful day off, we were all given one of her signature looks to take home, which was extremely generous! I already own a few of the looks so this time I went for the Golden Goddess look and I'm excited to give that a go!

What is your favourite Charlotte Tilbury product?
I'm currently in love with her new Instant Look in a Palette (£49 at CharlotteTilbury.com) and her Legendary Lashes (Coming soon). I'm also super excited for the new Hot Lips range. I need all of the shades!

By Terry Sun Designer Palette in Light & Tan Vibes


Back in March whilst browsing the Space NK website, I spotted this amazing new product. The By Terry Sun Designer Palette (£64 at Space NK). (PS. This is the part 3 I mentioned in my recent Space NK haul post!) It comes in two different colour ways and it was pretty hard to decide which one I wanted most. 





Both palettes contain 6 shades, with the blush/highlight shades on the left and the bronzers on the right. The other palette contains some seriously bold and beautiful blush shades. I think my perfect palette would have been those blushes and the bronzers from this palette!





The reason I went for this palette, the Light & Tan Vibes option, is because of the word light! Basically the bold one is number 1 and this is number 2, and I think the number usually signifies the intensity/darkness of the shade like foundations etc but from the description it sounds like number 2 is the one for paler skin. FYI - the other one is called Tan Flash Cruise.

I would describe the shades in the Light & Tan Vibes version as:

  • Bronze with a golden shimmer 
  • Red toned pink with a golden shimmer
  • Peach with a silver shimmer
  • Matte light toned peachy bronzer
  • Matte red/pink toned bronzer
  • Golden brown bronzer with gold flecks





When I swatched these I found that two of the shades were quite similar to NARS products. The middle blush is very similar to NARS Orgasm and the bottom bronzer is like NARS Laguna. I would say that the By Terry versions are much more pigmented though!

In terms of using these shades, I think it's very versatile as you can swirl a brush into a whole section, swirl a few of the shades together or pick out the individual products too. I really like mixing the two matte bronzers together as I find that very flattering on my skin tone. I've also been really enjoying using the peachy shimmer as a highlight, especially when I've got a coral/peachy blush on.

Getting to the bottom of this post, I just realised I didn't even mention the packaging! How stunning is that copper print? And the zig-zag effect inside? So gorgeous!

Are you tempted by one of these palettes?
