Autumn Beauty Essentials

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d take you through my autumn beauty essentials, from every plum berry and shimmer-based eyeshadow, without further adieu, here are some of the products that I recommend for any Fall/autumn look!Autumn Makeup Essentials (1)Lips

Obviously any deep red, plum or berry lipstick is what everyone flocks to, and recommends to everyone. I am no different, because I adore these shades too! But I also love nude colours for this time of year, as it can work beautifully with a statement or smokey eye look. Some of my lipstick favourites are Kate Moss for Rimmel in #107, Collection’s “Aubergine Kiss”, and Rimmel’s “Naughty Nude”. I would also recommend the corresponding lipliners with these lipsticks, as the almost double the lasting power, and ensure your lipstick stays put all day long, and doesn’t spread. I also love deep lipglosses such as Rimmel’s Vinyl gloss and Salvation lip lacquers.

Skin

While the sun may go into hiding for the autumn and winter months, your tan and contouring certainly doesn’t need to! A BB cream, or your regular foundation, a concealer and of course, bronzing is the ultimate essential for these autumnal/winter months, even if you don’t commit to any other A/W trends!Autumn Makeup Essentials (2)Eyes

Now is the perfect time to embrace gorgeously smokey eyes, shimmer and golds. I love the All About The Eyes palette, and the Heaven & Earth palette, because they include all of the necessary shades for just a shimmery gold eye, and a smokey eye! They are also both excellent stand-ins for many shades in the Naked 3 palette.

Nails

And finally, and this is a lot coming from me: dark colours are in. Reds, purples, greens, oranges, any hue that is deep and dark is perfect for this time of year. I’ve also recently discovered the Maybelline Colour Show in #232 “Rose Chic”, and I’ve never fallen in love with a nail varnish quite so quickly. It’s like painting rose gold directly onto your nails, is there anything better? I think not.


That’s it for my autumn/fall beauty essentials post, I hope you guys enjoyed it, if you did, be sure to let me know in the comments and give it a lil ‘like’, also let me know in the comments what your Fall essentials are when it comes to makeup.

Highlight Your Natural Beauty

When I started out this blog, I enjoyed wearing makeup, but as I have continued on with it for many months now, I’ve fallen in love with it. Now this means that I very quickly had to learn how to take better care of my skin, so that when I was wearing makeup, I was wearing it to have fun and accentuate my features and skin, not hide them.

So today I’m sharing with you guys my go to essentials for how I take care of my skin.Highlight Your Natural Beauty

Cleansing | I’ve said it many times before, but with wearing makeup, comes the responsibility of properly removing it and cleansing your skin of impurities. I don’t have a particular strenuous and crippling cleansing routine, because one of my essentials is the Nivea 3 in 1 Micellar Water, which makes the whole process easy and quick.

I also like to use the Nivea Soft Moisturiser, which as I have also mentioned before, is very light and gentle on the skin, and not greasy and heavy like many moisturisers. 

I also make sure I’m taking care of my skin from the inside out. Ensuring I drink as much water as possible. It really does have an unbelievable effect on your skin, that you wouldn’t believe until you’ve committed yourself to drinking more.Highlight Your Natural BeautySkin Treat | In and out I also like to give my skin a little treat with a face mask. I feel like this really helps my skin on a much deeper level than simple cleansing. I definitely feel like an occasional skin treat like this ensures my skin is clear and feels amazing. This leads me to feel more confident in it, and not like I need to cover it up.

I think another product that is absolutely perfectly suited for a skin treat such as this is Glossier’s Moisturising Moon mask it does every little thing that I like to do for my skin. It “dives beneath the surface to instantly plump skin up with hydration, helping to smooth fine lines and restore elasticity.” And “works quietly behind the scenes to gently brighten and even out your complexion, while honey and aloe act as soothing agents.”Highlight Your Natural BeautyFlawless Finish | Now obviously some days you can feel a little unhappy with your skin. You might be having a random breakout, or suffer with a little redness, it happens to us all. So these products are my handbag essentials for those times. I like to wear a BB Cream as opposed to a foundation because they feel much lighter on the skin, and they have so many more skin benefits, rather than just clogging up your pores. I also like a light concealer because it’s perfect for if you’ve just got a touch of darkness under your eyes, or a little pesky red spot. With a light concealer, you can cover those tiny things, but still allow the rest of your naturally skin shine.

Finally, when I do chose to wear these products, I like to apply them with a beauty blender, because the product is tapped onto the skin, not smeared into your pores, leaving you with a naturally flawless finish.


Those are my essentials for highlighting, not hiding your natural beauty. Thank you to Glossier.com for working with me on this post. Let me know in the comments below what your go to skincare products/essentials are!
