I got so excited when I spotted this new launch from Charlotte Tilbury! Charlotte really knows how to do glow and so I had super high hopes for this. Here’s what you need to know about the brand new Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow Primer.

I found this particularly interesting because, as well as promising to boost glow, it also has anti-ageing properties and works to colour correct the skin too. As I get a bit of redness, I thought it sounded like my perfect product.

As always with Charlotte Tilbury makeup products, there is a big skincare element and this product has been designed to deliver instant skin improvement and also improvements over time. You use this after your moisturiser and before foundation, if you are wearing makeup.

As you can see, this primer has a silvery, pearlescent finish to really brighten up the complexion.

What I love is that you can layer it up right under the eyes to help cancel out  brighten up any darkness or shadows.

Before & After

I find that whilst this adds visible radiance to my skin, it has a subtle mattifying effect that really helps to take down shine and make my enlarged pores less visible.

I actually wore it without anything else on a no makeup day, however, it creates the perfect smooth base for foundation too.
