My Dad has always advised me to invest in gold. And he is always right.

Hallelulah! Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold – Skin Highlighter is back. Another cult item that sold out quickly so I’m overjoyed it’s in stock again- I gave mine away, to a beautiful person. I wasn’t too sad because I knew it was going to a good home.

It’s the most beautiful highlighter and the best way to gild the lily, whatever your skintone. Not to mention it looks amazing on the dressing table! The Bar of Gold contains light-reflecting ingredients to cheer up dull skin and sculpt; it’s also marv for adding a glow, blurring imperfections and adding that special glamourous finish to your look. Use a big brush to sweep it across your cheekbones, forehead, décolletage -and a smaller brush to use it as an eyeshadow, by itself or as a”pop” over your other colours. I use a fingerprint of it in the centre of the lips to boost lip volume.

Recently, on the most amazing project I designed for ABC Studios (I say this proudly because of the subject matter), WHEN WE RISE (coming soon to a screen near you at the end of Feb, at least in North America, not sure about it’s UK release) I had to recreate the look of American disco god, Sylvester. My investment in gold really paid off so thanks for the good advice Dad.
