The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette has been on my lust list for a long ass time. I finally bit the bullet and went in to Brown Thomas to part with the dosh. Ms Dolce Vita looks a bit like this.
On the back Charlotte gives a guide. The lightest shade is the prime, the coppery is the enhance, the darker brown is the smoke shade and then the glitter is the pop. Of course you can use them any way you want, ’tis up to you 😉
They are all shimmery shades. They are buttery and full of pigment too. If you are like me and like a bit more of a matte shade in the crease though, you will obviously have to bring some other shadows into the mix, but we can live with that, right?
The eyeshadow quads feel lovely and luxurious, as does most of the Charlotte Tilbury range. Thank god because the products ain’t cheap!
I did a really quick eye look with Dolce Vita so you can see it in action.
I primed my lids and added a skin colour powder as normal to get rid of any tackiness.
I added a taupe brown shade lightly in my crease too just to give the shimmery colours something to blend into.
I took some of the coppery shade.
And applied this all over my lid. Be sure to tap off your brush, there will be fallout.
Then took a fluffy brush and blended into the light crease colour.
I then took the darkest ‘Smoke’ shade.
I used a tapered brush and added the colour on the tip of the brush.
I applied it onto the outer corner of my eye, and blended it into the crease.
I lined my upper lid with the brown Rimmel Waterproof Eye Definer.
I curled and added a load of mascara to my top lashes as you do. Then took the lightest shade of the Dolce Vita Palette.
I applied this to my brow bone and used it to highlight the inner corner of my eyes.
I of course had to use the pop shade, so I just applied a light layer of it on my eyelid with my finger. I think it applies best with your fingers.
To define the lower lash line a little bit, I just applied some of the coppery shade and blended it out.
To finish the look, I added some mascara on my lower lashes and used the Rimmel pencil in my waterline. Dunzo 🙂
I think the shades in the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette are really universal and will work for every eye colour. It looks particularly gorge on blue eyes though. It’s really a lovely palette, but with a €50 price tag (here), it’s definitely a treat. Maybe something to put on the Christmas list?
