***** Popular Requests *****
How I Get My Lashes So HUGE:

My Skincare Routine:

***** My Closest Foundation Shades *****
Winter shade | Summer shade
Dior Backstage = 2WO | 4WO
Laura Mercier = Tawny | Suntan
Nars Natural Radiant Longwear = Stromboli | Aruba
Estee Lauder = Tawny | Bronze
Pat McGrath = 14 | 18

ABH = 270C | 365C

***** HAIR COLOUR *****
I dye my own hair at home using L’oreal casting creme gloss 360 (black cherry)

***** SKIN TYPE/COLOUR *****
I’m 36 and my skin is normal with a slightly oily t zone and early signs of aging like fine lines as well as some sun damage and REDNESS!
I DO NOT use fake tan, but I get very tan naturally in the summer as I have olive skin. My face is often a LOT lighter than my body because I keep my face very well protected to keep my melasma under control and signs of aging at bay!

***** My Necklace *****
I’m afraid this was custom made and many years ago!

    Great video Charlotte!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
    I think I could fill in many categories just with Lisa Eldridge. Beautiful products and quality, seamless checking out and I received my order in two freaking days!!! Other new brands I tried not to be interested in because they don’t ship to Spain are Makeup by Mario, Rare Beauty, Victoria Beckham and some more 😢 At least, although it doesn’t carry everything, we have Sephora…

  2. Laura Richards on January 5, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I love boots right now – so good!! Xx

  3. woboznz on January 5, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Ditto Charlotte Tilbury!

  4. Aleksandra Zalewska on January 5, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Boots delivers also in the Netherlands, they’ve helpt me to get my hands on No7 powder 😁 I hate ordering at Sephora, I always pay 13,60 euro shipping cost everytime, even if I spend more than 100 euro. CT did keep me busy the whole 2020, thanks to you, Charlotte, I’ve discovered pallets from Pat McGrath, thank you for that! I wish everyone healthy, inspiring and full of love 2021! ⚘🌷⚘

  5. Chantelle Rosina Wray on January 5, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Love this video idea!

  6. Brenda F on January 5, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I love the YSL slim lipsticks. You introduced me to them and they are fantastic. Great video!

  7. Elizabeth Li on January 5, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    what has happened to you? where has this expensive make up come from? please try and be more like your old self and more realistic….now more than ever, please be realistic

  8. ilana w on January 5, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Agreed. CT!! Happy New Year Charlotte,!❤

  9. Jen P. on January 5, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    And favourite YouTuber of the year goes to……. Charlotte Holdcroft! 💕

  10. bratsj1 on January 5, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    We do have Boots here in Norway, but its by far the Boots I know from visiting the UK. Mostly a Pharmacy, but with some odd brands as Vichy, No 7, Soap & Glory etc. I love wandering the Boots in UK, just as much as I love to get lost in a huge Sephora whenever its available to me (mostl when visiting France or Spain on holiday)

  11. blanca marmolejo on January 5, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Hi Charlotte!! I think you, Morgan Turner and Mel Thompson are the best things to happen to makeup this year!!! You guys kept me sane through all the social distancing. You brought joy and comfort in an otherwise crazy year and I was always looking forward to all of your videos!! Thank you and happy new year!!

  12. Lucy Snapped on January 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Don’t worry – Pat is still a disaster zone! I had fewer items arrive than I ordered (and paid for!) and one of them was mouldy! 11 days later still no response from customer service…

  13. Annemarie Timmerman on January 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Happy healthy 2021 Charlotte, and thanks for an amazing video again, and all the others!!!!👍🤩🤩🤩🤩 I also think Charlotte Tilbury made the most progress this year, really good!!!! Hope for more bronzer shades between the shades, for instance i would love to see a 1.5 shade. But it’s amazing what she did this year, being inclusive (most important), but the eyeshadows, really being not a makeup artist i dislike her older quads, but the shadows released this year……amazing!!!!!!!!!!👍 Have a very nice New Years Day with your loved ones!!!!!🥂😘😘😘😘

  14. Summer Faith on January 5, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    What shade concealer do you use? Your makeup looks fabulous! x

  15. Bethan Davies on January 5, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Your makeup looks INCREDIBLE!!

  16. Yvonne Dohoney on January 5, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Agree w CT
    ..but the products that are coming out after she sold it give me pause and have been terrible and overpriced

  17. R B on January 6, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Rands for life PM, CT and ND😀

  18. Johanna Dzartah on January 6, 2021 at 12:02 am

    We have Boots in Dubai BTW 😊

  19. Natalie Foster on January 6, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Such a fun tag! My collab of the year was definitely Ofra x Samantha March.

  20. Mette on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    We have Boots in Norway 😊

  21. rubina sindhi on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Just moved to Germany.. and no boots here!!! They don’t do international delivery as well. So I have to come to london just to do shopping.. 🥸

  22. Jill C on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    God i feel you on the Pat McGrath customer service! And hoping it’s a new leaf too!

  23. Lisa B on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Also, your sweater! 😍

  24. lesley shipley on January 6, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Make up by Mario gets a thumbs up from me and I agree, the service and delivery was exceptional for me too!

  25. Jackie Allen on January 6, 2021 at 12:07 am

    This is the best TAG video idea of the year! I LOVED this! I hope Everyone does it!

  26. Kathleen EM on January 6, 2021 at 12:09 am

    No “Boots “ here in the USA.

  27. Debbie Otoole on January 6, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I really want Mel Thompson’s palette looks amazing and i love her eyeshadow looks, CT has definitely had some brilliant products this year, love her setting spray, finishing powder and that bronzer and the highlighter and the bejeweled eyes palette

  28. PitchayaNui on January 6, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Happy New Year we have boots in Thailand but not sell higher end brand. Only boots brand. Yes!!! Charlotte… so good she also just have 2 counters in Bangkok but not all the products.

  29. Annemarie Timmerman on January 6, 2021 at 12:11 am

    And palette of the year: Mel Thompson plus Sydney Grace, amazing!!!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

  30. YarX0 on January 6, 2021 at 12:11 am

    What a brilliant video idea! Makeup by Mario do charge UK customers higher prices compared to US customers ($48 per large palette vs £46 as an example), but I’d rather have this and a brand recognising international market rather than ‘customers are liable for customs and VAT’. Ehm… Thanks, no thanks. Boots have really stepped up their game this year, haven’t they? I’m loving shopping with them now.

  31. Rosanne McGuire on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Well done, Charlotte!! I could tell you put some thought into your selections. I concur with your rationale for your winners. Some of the brands I have not tried (Makeup by Mario, Vieve) but they are now on my radar.

  32. Johanna Dzartah on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Totally agree with your evaluation of the Lisa Eldridge experience. Spot on! Happy new year to you and your family Charlotte 🥰 xxx

  33. maria renny on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    One to watch for me in 2021 is the collab between Sydney Grace and Temptalia. So much expectation riding on this!

  34. Marina Vasic Prelic on January 6, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Very unique video!!!!

  35. PoppyBryn2013 on January 6, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Really enjoyed this. I love Boots -from what I understand, being owned by Walgreens has substantially helped their buying power hence the better choice of brands. I went to the big store in Glasgow last year for the first time and think I walked into heaven. My town’s tiny little store has Lancome and Benefit and that’s about it. I’ve spent a fair bit on their online shop this year. Love the points and the offers.

  36. tonia garcia on January 6, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Really enjoyed this video…n u look gorgeous beb..😄😄😄😄..Happy New Year

  37. KBellaBeauty on January 6, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Loved your awards program 😘

  38. Annemarie Timmerman on January 6, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Oh and we do have Boots here in The Netherlands too, but they do not sell all the products you mentioned, i forgot to say

  39. Aleksandra Zalewska on January 6, 2021 at 12:24 am

    To add one more, One to try: Lethal Cosmetics! I’ve ordered my first pallet, can’t wait to try it out. ⚘🌷⚘

  40. Lisa B on January 6, 2021 at 12:26 am

    We used to have at least one Boots in Vancouver, Canada, though it closed years ago. Love seeing the logo again—makes me flash back to the 80s. 🙂

  41. Tereza Burguera Ameave on January 6, 2021 at 12:26 am

    I love those YSL lipsticks, totally agree with you Charlotte! I have the rusty perfect fall shades 213 and 214. 🙂

  42. Mel Thompson on January 6, 2021 at 12:27 am

    You look F’ing FABULOUS 😍😍😍😍

    I commented too early! You’re WAY too kind to me! I love you dearly!!!! Thank you ❤️

  43. Cindy Gallardo on January 6, 2021 at 12:27 am

    I ordered from Lisa Eldridge. I live in the US. My order came quickly and I agree, customer service is amazing!

  44. MACARIA82 on January 6, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Dear and adorable Charlotte: I have heard from you and from Mel Thompson you’d have issues with the Pat McGrath’s customer service, and more people are saying the same, but the truth is I really think the service is excellent; I have had some issues with some orders but the customer service have treat me very well and I have receive a good response to my request. I’m so sorry for your experience, I really do. I just think is fair to leave this here to people can understand that there is another side of the coin. Anyway: love you and love your content. Saludos desde Colombia❤️🇨🇴❤️

  45. Mette Mai Norr Christensen on January 6, 2021 at 12:29 am

    thank you for all the amazing and educational videos you have given us in 2020, thank you for all the inspiration- I am deeply grateful🙏❤

  46. Kathryn P on January 6, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Massive thumbs👍 up to Boots for making it easier for us to get more brands. I’m very impressed indeed. Massive thumbs down 👎to those brands who don’t have U.K stockists and forcing us to pay huge amounts for international shipping and taxes, and Sephora for no longer being in the U.K.with apparently no reasonable explanation. Absolutely spot on Charlotte with Jamie G and CT. They go from strength to strength. After my grumble, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone 🎉✨.

  47. The Lulu Life on January 6, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I love this video! Hanging out for a few of the brands you mentioned to be available here in Aus!!

  48. Cynthias stylemua on January 6, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Is Boots going to start shipping to the EU in 2021? That would be amazing! Love your earrings! So pretty. Where did you buy them? I can’t wait to see Samantha Ravandahl’s brand in 2021.

  49. luxe ford on January 6, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Mario is a snack!

  50. Sophie D on January 6, 2021 at 12:32 am

    I received my lisa elridge orders very quick and I am from the U.S.! ☺️ I really hope she brings back velvet affair!!! I need that one!
