Lily James Showcases Glowing Skin and Vintage Waves In New Charlotte Tilbury Campaign

She's been a beauty muse for fans thanks to her changing hair colour and flawless makeup, so it's no surprise that Lily James is the new face of Charlotte Tilbury's beloved Magic Cream. The actor looks glowing in a series of new campaign images released on 27 Sept. as her blonde hair is styled into vintage waves to create that retro Hollywood glamour. The 33-year-old added soft pink pouty lips and perfectly arched brows, masterfully applied by Tilbury's niece Sofia Tilbury using products from the brand.

Perhaps most importantly is James's radiant skin that oozes luxury and has already got us thinking about party season. Wearing a white sequinned halter neck dress in one image and a champagne-coloured silk blouse in the other, James proves she is one seriously chic English rose.

Following in the footsteps of "Bridgerton" actress Phoebe Dynevor (who was the brand's first ever ambassador), the "Pam & Tommy" star publicly wears the brand on a regular basis and used Schwarzkopf-Tilbury as her MUA for the 2022 Emmy Awards red carpet in September 2022, and the Prince's Trust Global Gala in April 2022. Hints of James's partnership with the brand have been right under our noses for the past year, with her personal makeup artist Valeria Ferreira posting images of the star wearing exclusively Charlotte Tilbury products since December 2021 - and each of these posts were labelled as paid sponsored content.

It's always hard to tell whether or not a celebrity actually uses a product that they're endorsing, but Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream is universally loved. The luxurious cream, which retails at £75 for a 50ml tub, was the first product Tilbury ever created with skin-care scientists. After hitting the market in the UK back in 2013, it quickly gained legendary status among beauty fans, celebrity MUAs, models, beauty editors, social media stars, and pretty much anyone who tried it. It contains a unique cocktail of Bionymph Peptide, Vitamins C and E, Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Extract, Frangipani Extract, and Camellia Oil, all of which work hard to leave skin firmer and more elastic and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It's no wonder that James has been "obsessed" with the cream ever since Tilbury gave her her first pot. As part of the campaign, she said: "I'm always on the go and when I have hectic days on set wearing heavy makeup and not getting much sleep, my skin really suffers. Being on camera is a huge part of my job and I have to look and feel my best. Charlotte's Magic Cream is the only moisturiser I can rely on to keep my skin feeling hydrated, plump and smooth – it gives me instant results and that famous red-carpet ready glow!"

Charlotte Tilbury isn't the only brand the in-demand actress is collaborating with at the moment. She's the face of the Versace fall-winter 2022 campaign, in which we saw her rock a gothic look complete with bleached brows for the Versace Greca Goddess campaign back in July. Besides that, James has been busy filming "What's Love Got to Do with It?", a British rom-com also starring Emma Thompson that is due to be released in the UK on Jan. 27, 2023. In mid-September, James took a trip to Rome to shoot scenes for her upcoming film "Finalmente l'Alba". The film has no confirmed release date yet, but we can't wait to see James and her glowing skin on our screens again soon.
