Believe it or not, it's been almost a decade since George and Amal Clooney exchanged vows in their sensational, star-studded Venetian wedding. But there's one thing we remember like it was yesterday: the way Amal absolutely stunned.
The overnight 'It' girl's flawless complexion came courtesy of her makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury, who prepped Clooney's skin with Magic Cream Face Moisturizer, a hyaluronic acid-drenched formula from her brand's own skincare line. Already beloved by beauty insiders, the moisturizer made an even bigger splash once the barista-turned-bride put her best face forward. And now you can score a tub of the thick, skin-plumping cream at Nordstrom starting at $29.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Face Moisturizer is great for all skin types, but it works wonders on dry, aging skin. Tilbury created it with celebrities like Clooney in mind, as there was a huge need among models and movie stars at the time for a hydrating moisturizer to use as a base for makeup. Tilbury's formula did the trick, infusing the surface of the skin with so much moisture and plumpness that it created a flawless surface for foundation, concealer, eye shadow, blush and bronzer. A reduction in fine lines means there's nowhere for makeup to cake and get stuck.
At Nordstrom — where the cream starts at $29 for a 0.5-ounce jar of eye cream all the way up to $64 for a 1-ounce jar and $100 for 1.6-ounces of face cream — customers are totally smitten. "It immediately makes my skin feel moisturized without feeling sticky," one five-star reviewer wrote. "My makeup is able to go on right after without it sliding around or getting patchy. Absolutely love!"
Another fan added, "it seemed to instantly melt into my skin. It feels healing...I carry the sample jar with me everywhere I go and I will not be using any other moisturizer. My 40-year-old skin loves it."
A thorough cleansing and a twice-daily application of a top-notch moisturizer with all the right ingredients is Clooney's skin-nourishing routine — as she's admitted countless times over the years — and Charlotte Tilbury is her hands-down favorite. With the brand's Magic Cream Face Moisturizer so affordable right now, there's no reason not to grab a tub for yourself.
It's a cream shoppers call a "miracle in a jar" and a "miracle worker" — and while we never expect actual miracles, we know that an excellent product can come very close. A visible difference is sometimes all the miracle you can hope for — and the stars themselves can help guide us in the right direction.
