Spring has officially sprung—thank goodness—and with it comes the chance to overhaul my makeup bag for the coming months. This year, more than ever, the seasonal shift feels all the more poignant: leaning into glowy skin, pops of colour and feathery-soft brows is as much about refreshing my beauty look as it is about stepping out from the shadows of the last year with a spring in my step. And there's one brand that I can wholeheartedly rely on to make that transition all the more joyful: Charlotte Tilbury.
From peachy-nude lipsticks to innovative new brow products—a true delight for someone whose natural brows have been left unattended for the best part of year now—there's no denying that Charlotte Tilbury knows what's up when it comes to spring makeup.
Ahead, keep scrolling for the 9 Charlotte Tilbury makeup products that I'll be wearing basically every day this spring.
The spring lipstick
Nude lipsticks are pretty controversial, after all what's considered nude for one skin tone might not be for another. Which is why Nude Romance was born: "a nuanced, neutral shade with a kiss of peach that suits everyone", according to Tilbury. After many years spent avoiding traditionally nude lipsticks—I find that they tend to be either too orange-toned or too pale and generally leave me looking washed out—I can safely say that this peachy-nude will be sitting pretty in my makeup bag all spring.
The flattering neutral hue is a great foray back into the world of lipstick colour if, like me, you've spent the last 12 months basically only wearing lip balm.
The spring brow products
We still have a bit of time to wait before salons reopen and I can finally let a professional loose on my unruly brows but, thankfully, Charlotte Tilbury has just dropped some major brow innovations and they've totally transformed the way I do my eyebrows in three easy steps.
Trust me, even if you're useless at filling in your own brows, the angled precision tip of this just-launched pencil makes it so easy to fill in sparse patches with natural, hair-like strokes of colour.
If your natural brows are lacking in shape and structure like mine—they resemble two lazy caterpillars right about now—then you'll love this newly-reformulated cream-wax pencil, It comes in 8 shades and makes it so easy to create a beautiful arched brow shape.
Fluffy brows are definitely having a moment and Charlotte Tilbury has reformulated her classic Legendary Brows for the occasion. The new tinted formula is designed to add texture and fullness to even the tiniest of brow hairs and the teeny micro-precision brush creates the perfect feathery finish.
The final installment of Charlotte Tilbury's brow innovations comes in the form of the brand new Brow Fix—possibly one of the most versatile brow gels that I've ever tried. The chunky bristle brush grips hairs and coats them with clear gel to set them in place all day long, without any hint of stickiness or crunchiness. Even better, it actually leaves them looking glossier and healthier than before.
What would a spring makeup look be without a little glow and this cult radiance booster from Charlotte Tilbury delivers it by the bucketload. Admittedly, this is a staple in my makeup bag year-round thanks to its versatility—wear it alone, under foundation as a luminous primer or on top of makeup for extra shine—but it really comes into its own during sunnier months.
This might be my ultimate spring foundation. The formula is so light that it basically just feels like you're wearing moisturiser yet it magically evens skin tone, imparts dewiness and also provides a decent amount of coverage without compromising on its sheer texture. This is basically healthy-looking skin in a bottle.
I was inspired to reach for this hybrid liquid blush-highlighter after discovering that Lizzo was wearing it for her glowy Charlotte Tilbury makeup look at the Grammys this year. Just dab it onto the high points of your cheeks and blend it in for luminous skin with a flush of pretty pink colour.
I love wearing cream makeup products all year round but they're particularly lovely in spring when I really crave that dewy, juicy skin look. For eyes, this chic little pot of colour will be taking up residence in my makeup bag. It's a beautiful dusky-pink shade with a hint of golden shimmer and can be blended in with fingertips for a totally fuss-free eyeshadow look.
