Below, Mary Wiles shares the steps to create Kirsten’s red carpet look:

  1. Mary prepped Kirsten’s skin using Multi Miracle Glow first applied as a mask to moisturize the skin and stimulate micro-circulation and then removed with a warm towel. Wiles then applied a generous layer of Charlotte Tilbury’s signature Magic Creamto give the complexion a luminous glow to create a smooth, flawless base. Lip Magic was used to ensure lips were well hydrated.
  1. Next, Wiles applied Wonderglow to the cheekbones and temples to produce a flawless soft focus and an instant “spotlight” effect. Magic Foundation in shade 3 was blended out over Kirsten’s T-zone to ensure her complexion looked flawless and concealed any imperfections with The Retoucher in Shade 2. Mini Miracle Eye Wand in shade 1 was applied to brighten under the eyes.
  1. Wiles continued Kirsten’s facial framework by contouring using killer cheekbones using red carpet favorite, Filmstar Bronze and Glow.
  1. Wiles finished the glowing complexion with Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love is the Drug on the apples of Kirsten’s cheeks for a youthful flush of color, followed with a light dusting of Airbrush Flawless Finish in Shade 1 to ensure long wear.
  2. Kirsten wanted her eyes to dazzle in front of the cameras. To achieve this look Wiles used Eyes to Mesmerise in Bette applied with a finger. The Feline Flick was then applied along the lash line and out to elongate the shape of the eye. Colour Chameleon in Black Diamonds was added into the liner and extended outwards to build up a strong definition and smudged for a smoky eye effect.
  3. To achieve true red-carpet glamour, Wiles applied two coats of Charlotte’s new Legendary Lashes mascara for an instant false lash effect. Wiles confirmed that Kirsten likes her brows well defined and applied Brow Lift in Brooke S to fill in any gaps.


  1. To complete the look, Wiles applied the retro red toned Matte Revolution in Red Carpet Red, lined with Lip Cheat in Savage Rose to ensure her pout was perfect.
