The Bombshell


Hi guys!

Here is the next installment to my Charlotte Tilbury Iconic Looks Dupe series. Today is probably my favourite look in the collection that doesn’t actually have an eyeshadow palette associated to it. This one is the Bombshell look, based on the gorgeous glam hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe. It’s a gorgeous bronzed look with very simple eye makeup and glossy red lips.

So here’s how I created the look.


Firstly, I primed my face using Benefit’s Porefessional Matte Primer. Since my eyes are still a little dry, I avoided the eye area, concentrating around the t-zone and chin.

As for foundation, I used Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Foundation. This is such a gorgeous foundation and blends beautifully into the skin. Under my eyes I used my faithful Bare Minerals Bareskin Concealer, blending these in with a beauty blender. I set everything in place with my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Powder. 

The model has some serious chiselled cheek bone action going on so I attempted to bring my contouring a-game with me today! I first chiselled out myself some cheek bones with my very battered L’Oreal Sculpt Contour palette, blending out with a buffing brush. I then bronzed the outer areas of my face with a mixture of the Chanel Soleil de Tan and Benefit’s Dew the Hoola. These mix together beautifully, giving a gorgeous matte bronze glow.

For blush, I concentrated MAC’s Melba Blush on my cheek bones, just above the contour, blending slightly onto the apples of my cheeks. I finished off the face makeup using a hint of Becca’s Shimmering Face Protector in Champagne Pop.


I had so much fun creating this elongated cat-eye eyeshadow look! And since there is no eye palette for this look, I went to some of my other eyeshadows.

Firstly, I defined my eyebrows a lot using Bare Minerals Frame and Define Pencil. This was important for the actual eyeshadow to have the brows defined first.

I first drew out my feline triangle using Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre eyeshadow in Mirage with an angled liner brush; following the line to the outer area of my brows and matching it to the crease of my eyelid. I filled in the entire lid up to this line with the same colour. Over this I then mixed the two shades from Nars’ Isolde Palette to add a touch more glow to the lid.

On the lower lash line, I then drew a thick line of bronze gold using Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Sandglow, smudging this slightly with a smudging brush.

I then tightlined my lash lines using Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock n’ Kohl liner in Barbarella Brown. On the upper lash line I then used Chanel’s Ecriture eyeliner to draw a medium line along my lash line.

I finished off the eyes with some black mascara using L’Oreal’s Sculpt Lash mascara on the upper lashes and MAC’s Extended Play mascara along the bottom lashes. I must admit these aren’t my favourite mascaras, but I wanted to give them a try.



To finish off the lips, I need that gorgeous glossy red lipstick! I decided to mix two of the new Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks together; Punked (grey) and Red Rage (true red). Together these matched the lipstick perfectly!

And that is my attempt at the Bombshell look. This has actually been my favourite one so far! Which one would you like to see next?

Bye for now!
