Hello! Magazine’s Charlotte Jolly Shares Her Beauty Tips

We’ve been sharing lots of beauty tips, tricks and tutorials this June to help you get ready for all your summer events, so of course I couldn’t resist reaching out to other beauty editors to find out how they get prepped and primed.

I caught up with Charlotte Jolly, Beauty Director at Hello! and Hello! Fashion Monthly magazines.

What Essential Product Do You Always Take To An Event?

Dark circles are a particular bugbear of mine so I would have to say NARS Cosmetics’ Soft Matte Complete Concealer.”

NARS’ Soft Matte Concealer is a must. It hides dark circles effortlessly!

“I would always slip a solid perfume into my purse too ‐ they’re compact and you can dab on your scent discreetly without spraying the people around you. I love Glossier’s You Solid Perfume.”

What 3 Things Do You Do To Turn A Day Look Into An Evening One?

“Step 1: I’m definitely going to extend my eyeliner flick and I’m yet to find a better liquid pen than DHC’s EX one. It has the perfect tapered nib and, once dry, it doesn’t budge.

Step 2: I’ll then pat on some highlighter ‐ I’m using the Kora Organics Rose Quartz Luminizer at the moment.

Step 3: Finally, I’ll apply This Works’ Perfect Legs Skin Miracle to even out any skin on show ‐ usually my arms, decolletage and ankles. It’s easy to apply and makes you look more put‐together and polished, instantly.”

This Work’s Perfect Legs Skin Miracle is a really lightweight tinted serum that doesn’t transfer and gives your skin an instant sheen ‐ no shimmer.

What’s Your Favourite Makeup Product To Add Flare To An Evening Outfit?

I love a velvety red lip that lasts all night!

“If I have time, I’ll apply a velvety red lip. I use a little lip scrub and apply a balm. Then layer Mac’s Lipmix in red over its Lipmix in orange for a bright coral rouge. There’s a lot of blotting involved but when I’m happy with the application I pat on Mac’s loose Pigment powder in red. This lip lasts all night! In fact, I have to use eye make‐up remover to buff it off when I get home.”

If you Glossies don’t have time for that many steps, applying a bold, red matte lipstick will do the trick too!

What’s Your Go‐To ‘Comfy But Cool’ Outfit For A Casual Event?

“A pressed white tee (from Arket or Cos), cropped, high‐rise, wide leg jeans from J‐Crew and trainers. My husband sourced a pair of Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 in a pinky beige for me, which I love!”

Recreate her look with these items from Asos, or check out this blog for more tips on how to dress in a practical yet stylish way.

Where Would You Shop For An Affordable Special Occasion Dress?

Ganni, & Other Stories, Marks & Spencer and Zara are all go-tos.

“I bought a lovely rustic, yellow dress from Zara for a wedding recently. I love the cut and how bright it is ‐ and it’s only £29.99! I accessorised with some bleached tortoiseshell clips from Tort.”
