Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, 1

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

My Magic Foundation is a miracle in a bottle that transforms skin for all ages, skin tones and skin types.

I have worked with laboratories for five years to create a “hyper-intelligent” formula that gives full-coverage yet feels completely weightless, with all the anti-aging and protective benefits of a luxury skin cream.

It conceals imperfections, glides on like a dream, and literally feels like a second skin. Whether your skin needs just a bit of perfecting, or you struggle with a frustrating issue like acne, melasma or rosacea, my Magic Foundation will give you a perfect skin day, every day!

Chose from 15 beautiful demi-matte shades to match every skin tone from Lily Cole to Lupita Nyongo. Buff on with my Magic Complexion Brush for a flawless, air-brushed finish.

Acne & Acne Scarring

  • Instantly tightens pores and reduces shine.
  • Minimizes oil production after 9 weeks.

Redness, Rosacea, Discoloration & Melasma

  • Weightlessly covers any discoloration or imperfections.
  • Helps reduce over-production of melanocytes (which cause pigmentation issues like melasma).

Mature Skin: Lines, Deep Wrinkles, Age Spots & Spider Veins

  • Smoothes the appearance of wrinkles in just 1 hour.
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots by 75%.

Normal to Tired, Dull Skin

  • Antioxidant formula rejuvenates skin from within for a rested, refreshed look.


Magical Laricyl

  • A concentrated mushroom extract that firms skin. It instantly tightens pores whilst flooding the skin with moisture, for a comfortable, nourished yet flawless finish.

Genius Hyaluronic Filling Spheres

  • What makes Hyaluronic Acid so beneficial is its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. These “genius” spheres absorb into the skin and plump up wrinkles from within. In 1 hour skin looks smoother and firmer, plus more supple and youthful.

Super-Charged Vitamin C (VC-IP)

  • Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that fights the damaging and aging effects of free radicals. My Magic Foundation is the first time this new super-charged Vitamin C has been used in a foundation. With consistent use, it helps skin build new collagen (essential for youthful elasticity), reduces the appearance of age spots by 75% in four months, and reduces the appearance of acne after 9 weeks.

Broad Spectrum SPF 15

  • Protects from damaging rays so skin can retain a healthy, youthful look.


Follow this routine for flawless, poreless perfect skin:


  • Apply a generous layer of my Goddess Skin Clay Mask for smoother, fresher, “baby skin” in 10 minutes. Remove with warm water and a splash of cold water to tighten pores.
  • Follow with my miracle-working Magic Cream using my patented Pro Collagen Wonder Workout massage technique for youth-boosted, dewy and plumped-up skin.
  • Apply Wonderglow for a soft-focus beauty flash with a naturally lit-from-within look.

Brand Story

As a make-up artist working in the fashion and beauty industry for over 20 years and as a busy professional woman and mother determined to look my best, I use the incredible transformative power of make-up on a daily basis. From a young age, I noticed the effect a beautiful woman had entering a room and wanted to understand her secret weapon. Then, at 13 I discovered mascara and personally experienced the power of make-up. I have been hooked ever since.
Early in my career, I was determined and persistent and built my network of professional peers – photographers, models and stylists – many of whom I still work with today. The 1990s – the era of supermodels who epitomised glamorous beauty and really embraced hair and make-up artistry – were inspiring and formative for me.
I believe that every woman wants to feel beautiful, powerful and sexy and that make-up is a great way to achieve this.
I'm privileged to work with some of the most incredible people in the fashion and beauty industry. I've also worked as a creative consultant with many fantastic beauty brands and
innovative labs.
