Prep your skin 

"Asian women already understand the power of amazing skin. My signature Charlotte's Magic Cream and Night Cream are full of stem cells, making them the perfect skincare you need to get plump, gorgeous skin. I also worked with a scientist in Canada on a Dry Sheet Face Mask that is the only mask in the world that penetrates down to the third layer of the epidermis. I love the fact that Asian women are obsessed with masks, and this dry sheet mask is perfect because it doesn’t use a wet formula and is drip-free, so you can put it on to prep your skin anywhere you want."

Contouring is key

“If you want amazing cheekbones, you got to work on it and contouring is the secret to many glamourous make-up looks in Hollywood. You can use contouring tools like the Hollywood Contour Wand to make your features stand out. It comes with a sponge tip so it's easy to bring out your beautiful face structure. Give more definition by sliding some glow to your face.”

Create a youthful glow

“It's important to keep a healthy glow. I created Brightening Youth Glow specifically for Asian women because they like to have bright and luminous skin. I worked with the laboratories and put a lot of youth-boosting properties in it, such as olive extract and watercress. Not only does it give you an even skin tone, it is also good at colour correcting and taking all the blemishes out of your skin.”

Focus on the eyes

“I love Asian women’s eye shapes but women in Hong Kong don’t do enough with their eyes. They tend to focus more on their skin and lips, but they have really beautiful eyes and I want to make them look more mesmeric. This is why I created Eyes to Mesmerise shadow because the eye shadows will give the eyes amazing contour.”
