New make up lines are brand­tas­tic

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Powder Room -

It’s been an ex­cit­ing time in Glas­gow re­cently with some amaz­ing new make up com­pa­nies open­ing at last - Char­lotte Til­bury in House of Fraser and Make up For­ever in Sil­ver­burn.

Make up For­ever, cre­ated in Paris in 1984 has been sold world­wide in departments stores since the early 90s and Sephora since 1996.

It has just made its way to us in 2016, but hey, bet­ter late than never.

It’s a brand that was ini­tially cre­ated for pro­fes­sional use, but the qual­ity and tech­nol­ogy be­hind the for­mula’s has ap­pealed to the pub­lic. The prod­ucts re­mind me a lit­tle of Il­la­masqua with their vivid matte shades and huge lashes se­lec­tion, but the big favourite is their HD foun­da­tion.

I’ve been dy­ing to try it for­ever as it’s used by pro­fes­sion­als I love.

There is quite a se­lec­tion but I de­cided to try the Ul­tra HD stick foun­da­tion as it of­fers full cov­er­age with­out look­ing heavy. Great for brides!

HD foun­da­tions are cre­ated for film and TV so that the skin looks flaw­less but, more im­por­tantly, the tex­ture/sub­stance is in­vis­i­ble on screen un­der high res­o­lu­tion lenses. It is fab­u­lous and does ex­actly what it says on the tin. They also have a wide range of Aqua prod­ucts which are wa­ter­proof. Amaz­ing for brides.

Eye lin­ers, lip lin­ers, liq­uid lip­sticks and glosses, the colour range is fab­u­lous and they don’t budge. Eat, drink and kiss proof to any­one look­ing for a new day to day brand to try.

I’m still work­ing my way through the range, so I’ll come back with more find­ings.

Next is Char­lotte Til­bury at House of Fraser. If you haven’t vis­ited the counter yet, you must. It’s beau­ti­ful! It’s in the style of old school glam­our which I adore and has def­i­nitely been miss­ing in the make up world.

It’s what I’ve tried to achieve at my own stu­dio.

At the store they of­fer a se­ries of looks e.g. The Golden God­dess, The Rock Chic, The Bomb­shell and So­phis­ti­cate are just a few.

You can pur­chase your cho­sen look with ev­ery­thing you need to achieve it in beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing.

Such an im­pres­sive vis­ual dis­play, soooo tempt­ing. Char­lotte Til­bury is the Willy Wonka of make up.

I haven’t vis­ited the Lon­don Store yet, but I can’t wait to see it on my newt trip down south.
