Charlotte Tilbury : Hollywood Contour & Highlight

A post shared by Stephanie Silv. Lui (@stephlui88) on

A little while ago, I bought the Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Beauty Light Wand (Highlighter) and the Contour Wand.
As much as I love some of her products, being honest, the Highlighter is amazing. Like the Wonderglow, you can use it before and after foundation. Personally, I do prefer the finishing texture of the Wonderglow more but of course, to get that highlighted look, then go for it.

Now, when it came to using the Contour Wand (I have it in Light to Medium), it did take me a while to get use to it because of how much more fluid it is comparing to a cream colour I use daily.  It does set once it's blended, it can be used without powder on top of it. Because I do have my makeup on all day without touching up, I tend to use a powder contour to go over it so it lasts longer. Colourwise, Light - Medium is more of an ashy tone, it does give a very natural look. I will say though, the amount of contour I use is alot more than highlight, so for it's price, I do find it more expensive however, it's great for travelling and lightweight!

The only problem I really had was to remember to twist the top part of the sponge to close it, otherwise, I had a bit of a highlight and contour spillage all in the cap and makeup bag. Basically, remember to twist to open and close the product if you're not using it!

NOTE* I did purchase with my own money. NO AD

Most Worn Reds

Do click on the products listed above to see where you can get them and prices too. 

Personally, I love a good long wear of a lipstick or liquid lip, so that I don't need to worry too much about the smudging or colouration as constant especially after having a coffee or two on the go all the time. There are many other brands but these are just the few that have been long wearing and available for me to use.

The Tram Store

I came across this little café from viewing one of the random collective photos you get on Instagram. On this glorious day through the winter seasons, the sun decided to come out before the rain poured over the weekend. I will say though, what attracted me to go was the setting and atmosphere I saw from the photos.

Just around the corner of Lea Bridge Roundabout on Upper Clapton Road its not too far from Clapton Station either or the bus stops by the roundabout itself. 

By the time I arrived around 12.30PM, it was pretty packed on the main tables (which I will admit, I love a good wooden sharing table). Since that was the case, I opted to sit by the window. I love how everything inside the café is filled with greenery, chilled vibe and relaxed music.

The stools by the window are very tall comparing to the low level of the table, so if you are as tall as me (I’m 5’7) and having to work on a laptop, the hunch was beyond uncomfortable. So I waited until most people have left after the bustling busy lunch hour and made my way to the long table for a more comfortable level to work from. 

Ordering at the till like any cafe then having a seat. I had a vegan sandwich (sourdough bread) with roasted aubergine, courgettes, harissa, tahini, garlic sauce and salad. It says salad on the menu but I was given some pickled veggies, along with a black coffee as always. Not going to lie, but the coffee I had was slightly to the sour taste, maybe an over burn of the coffee beans? Or maybe I was having a fussy day where I need a good coffee to get me going for the rest of the day. 

After moving from the window seat to a more human level to work from, having too many coffees is never good for any one. I debated to myself at the counter staring at the drink list board, finally ordered a Chai Tea Latte in the end to stop myself from going hyper-overactive on caffeine. 

Just as I finishing up with work and a lovely chai tea latte, it was time to hold my cup up (just for the sake of a photo) and say cheers to the weekend to come!
