Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Body Cream, how to get a ‘snatched’ jawline IRL, plus what’s in our Beauty Editor’s basket this month

Nothing squeals ‘hi summer!’ quite like an edit of the (very) best thirsty-skin-quenching beauty buys. From the latest in bodycare (brought to you by none other than Charlotte Tilbury) to the glow stick of summer 2023 – and the zero-slip makeup tricks that all pros swear by – we present the season’s hottest hits…

Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Sticks

1. Chanel’s trending Multi-Use Glow Stick

No one buys this and regrets it. Just ask Instagram – for if there’s one product that comes with compliments (and frenzied copycatting) as standard, this is she: Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick.

Yours for grown-up (non-glittery) on-the-go glow, this skin-melting, moisture-rich highlighting balm will have you looking dewy and delicious in an instant. Ideal on cheekbones and (wet-look) lids, there’s Golden Light (for warmth), Transparent (for glass skin) and Sculpting (for a pearly finish). L–O–V–E.

2. Charlotte Tilbury’s new Magic Body Cream

If anyone knows how to give great glow, it’s Charlotte Tilbury – but how does the brand’s first ever body moisturiser really measure up?

Promising all the benefits of the OG Magic Cream – tightening, brightening, hydrating – Charlotte’s Magic Body Cream is loaded with energising caffeine, moisture-maxing hyaluronic acid, skin-smoothing shea butter and firming ALGAKTIV™️ UPLIFT.

So far, so Tilbury – because the real magic is in the results. I had the pleasure of trialling Charlotte’s Magic Body Cream prior to launch, and can confirm that it more than delivers. Skin feels (and looks) deliciously dewy in seconds, feels twice as hydrated within the hour and it gave my limbs (actual) A-list glow. It even promises firmer-feeling skin in eight weeks.

Use to cocoon, soothe and improve – this is bodycare to make your face jealous.

3. The TikTok trend we’re obsessed with

With more than 210 million views on TikTok, The Internet’s preoccupation with #snatchedjawlines isn’t going anywhere in a hurry, with legions of us longing for a more defined, lifted look.

How to get it? 1. Boost skin elasticity (think: sleep + a balanced diet). 2. Consistent facial massage with hyaluronic acid + a gua sha (two minutes daily, 10 minutes weekly). 3. SPF, daily. 4. Try a microcurrent facial device or pro facial. (I love the TheraFace PRO).

4. The A-list skin-perfecting primers

The pro secret to celebrity skin? Primers – for a quick blur and fix. The best skin-perfecting primers = better blending and a budge-proof finish, come rain or shine. Here are three of the best…
