Autumn Makeup and Beauty Essentials

Hey everyone,

Recently, the weather has been changing, it's been getting much colder outside and the leaves have been changing colour and we all know what this means...its now AUTUMN! I love autumn as it gives a chance to finally transition over to wearing dark berry colours and warmer toned clothes and makeup. Although there are many beautiful things about autumn, we are still faced with cold weather, which does tend to dry out our skin and lips in this blog post...I'll be going over some of my favourites to deal with dry skin, lips and my favourite makeup products to go to.

Lip Balm - As we all know, with this colder weather our lips often get very chapped and any lip balm will do the job for keeping your lips soft and moisturised in preparation for the harsh winter ahead. Lip balm is very inexpensive and easy to find and on top of having soft lips they can also come tinted to work as a two in one lipgloss and adds colour!

No. 2
Fern Cotton Eyeshadow Palette- I've been in love with wearing berry colours and smokey brown eyes recently...and this palette covers every autumn colour you need. 

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - I've also been using my Naked 3 palette a lot recently, more of the darker colours this time, towards the right side of the palette. Especially the shades factory and blackheart. 

No. 4 
Neom Organic Hand Lotion - I've been getting back into using hand creams again to prevent my hands from getting dry and I've been using the Neom Organic Hand Lotion in "Sicilian Lemon & Fresh Basil". This hand lotion comes with a pump so is easy to sit on the desk and when you're sitting there, its easy to access and apply a small amount. 

Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzer kit - I've seen many different contouring kits out there, but this seems to be one of my favourites. The blush although it looks very bright pink, when applied give a more warmer, pale brick red colour. The bronzer is also an everyday essential which I apply after setting my foundation. Both the blush and the bronzer have a slight sparkle to them, so when applied it leaves your face glimmering, rather than looking matte. 

No. 6 
Topshop Sunbeam Highlight - I got this as a gift a little while ago now and I don't use it as often as I should, but now after coming across it in my makeup drawer, I reach for it when I want to spice up my look. It adds a perfect amount of shimmer and gives a different dimension to an everyday look.

Rimmel Apocalips Lipgloss - In "Nude Eclipse 600", I often pair the dark berry eyeshadow colours with a nude lipgloss or lipstick for a more everyday look and this rimmel lipgloss is perfect and long lasting. 

No. 8 
Lancome Juicy Tube Lipgloss - The other alternative to a nude is a simple, clear lipgloss. Like this lancome one, mine came from a set a while ago so i'm, unclear of the name, but a clear lip gloss is definately an essential for autumn...any season really. 

No. 9 
new CID Three in One Lip Wand -  I think this product is absolutely brilliant for any season, all year round. It has everything you need for the perfect lip...a lip liner...lipstick and lipgloss! It's much easier to pop in your handbag then trying to find 3 separate products to pair together.

and finally....

Models Prefer Lip Gloss - This final product is something that's come back into fashion recently...brown lipgloss/lipstick. As we all know, brown lips were a big thing in the 90s and they've been brought back why not rock it this autumn?

Thank you so much for reading! I hope that you enjoyed this blog post...see you in the next one :)
