Charlotte Tilbury’s AM/PM routine

From a tried-and-tested skincare regime to wearing eye makeup at night: businesswoman and A-list makeup artist CHARLOTTE TILBURY reveals her exacting daily routine



I wake up to…

…my beautiful boys, Flynn, eight, and Valentine, three, who come bouncing into my room at 7am every morning.

I have a morning mantra…

…“Dare to dream it, dare to believe, dare to do it.”

I start my day with…

…a specially blended herbal tea prescribed by my acupuncturist and a boiled egg with avocado on buckwheat toast. I also take homeopathic drops to boost my energy and support my immune system.

To get a glow…

…the first thing I do in the morning is cleanse with my Multi-Miracle Glow Cleanser, Mask & Balm. I then apply my Goddess Skin Clay Mask, followed by my Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. Next, I prep my skin with my Magic Cream, then tap in Magic Eye Rescue underneath the eyes. To finish, I apply my Brightening Youth Glow.

I keep myself energized…

…through my mindset: if you feel tired, you are tired; if you feel energized, you are. Everything is state of mind. I get a lot of my energy from people. I love to dance and to have fun, and sometimes when I’m tired, I appreciate it even more – it makes me feel more alive.

  • Multi-Miracle Glow Cleanser, Mask & Balm, 100ml
  • Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask
  • Defence Drops, 30ml
  • Charlotte's Magic Cream, 50ml


My bathroom is my sanctuary…

…I light Diptyque candles to create a relaxed atmosphere (Figuier and Baies are my favorites) and run a bath. Then I do the same multi-mask as I do in the morning, but I start with Glow Balm, then the Clay Mask followed by the dry sheet masks. I also love Epsom salts to detoxify the skin, especially when I’m traveling a lot.

My husband has never seen me without makeup…

…I even apply my famous smoky ‘bedroom eyes’ before we go to sleep. First I take off my makeup, then I perform my Tilbury Tap massage to stimulate my circulation. I start by working my fingers over the cheekbones, then tap them across the forehead, chin and nose using a pitter-patter motion to stimulate lymphatic drainage and boost micro-circulation so my skin looks fresh and glowing.

To create my ‘bedroom eyes’…

…I apply my feline flick using a soft chocolate shade. Starting from the inner corner of the eye, I draw a very fine line as close as possible to the lash line for two thirds of the way. From that point, I start to thicken the line, sweeping the pen slightly up and out and end the flick 2mm from the corner of the eye. I then apply my Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara, and slather on a layer of Magic Night Rescue Cream.

Acupuncture sessions help me sleep…

…but I also love podcasts, and most recently listened to Oprah Winfrey on Gwyneth Paltrow’s first Goop podcast.

I like to bronze before bed…

…once a week, I apply a thin layer of my Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask. It gives me a super-hydrating, easy, flawless faux tan. It’s like an overnight vacation.
