If you happened to take a look at my 'What I Got For Christmas' post a week or so ago, then you probably would've seen that I was lucky enough to receive an amazing set from Charlotte Tilbury - The Golden Goddess. As with many of her other 'looks', this set of products has been chosen to perfectly compliment the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Golden Goddess - a beautiful palette made up of four lovely neutral shades. Today's installment of 'Made Up' is more of a review of this gorgeous set rather than a look of my own creation, as it's easy enough to buy a set like this by just looking at the gorgeous colour combinations, but I wanted to show you what it actually looks like on a real person. Therefore, I have used every single item included in The Golden Goddess kit (along with a base product and something on my brows) so that you can get a real feel as to what the shades look like. The only thing that differs from the original set is the lipliner shade, as for some reason I actually received the shade 'Pink Venus' rather than 'Pillow Talk', but due to the opacity of the lipstick, it probably didn't make much difference to the final outcome. Apart from that, I honestly cannot fault the set - all of the products included are phenomenal! My personal favourites would probably be the eyeshadow palette, the blush, and the lipstick. If I had to choose to get rid of one item, it would probably be the eyeliner - not because it's bad or anything, in fact, it's pretty good, but it's not outstanding like the other products, so I don't feel like I need it. 

That's about all you need to know about the set (but do feel free to ask any questions in the comment section) so let's get on to the look!
Products used:
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pink Venus (should've been Pillow Talk) - £16

1. Prep your face - cleanse, moisturise, apply lip balm and put on your foundation/concealer/powder. Don't forget to get your brows looking good too!
2. Add the lightest shade from the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Golden Goddess all over the lid, and follow that by adding definition using the two shadows on the right side of the palette. Start off with a fluffy brush and add the taupe shadow all along the crease, and then deepen the outer corner with the bottom right shade.
3. Take the glitter shade from the bottom left of the palette on a pencil brush and smudge it along the lower lash line. 
4. Apply a thin line of the Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Eye Powder Pencil in Sophia along the upper lash line and on the outer third of the lower lash line. Make sure to line your upper water line as well.
5. Grab the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara and apply a coat of two to your lashes.
6. With a large, fluffy brush, apply some of the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Ecstacy and blend it out nicely. This should give your skin a nice fresh pop!
7. Time to line your lips! This kit was actually supposed to come with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, but for some reason my set included the shade Pink Venus instead! Either way, it works out nicely. Once your lips are lined, take the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Stoned Rose and apply a generous amount of colour to your lips!
8. Finish off the look by applying some of the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Colour-Lasting Lip Laquer in Ibiza Night, or alternatively, leave this step out if you want a more satin look to your lips.

Et voila...
