The bold bright colours and pastels have been put away for year another year, and I have dug out some of my fave beauty picks for the Autumn and Winter.
First of all, can we talk about these candles? I know they have nothing to do with beauty but I am totally obsessed with them. The smaller candle in Spice Pumpkin is from Primark, and it was only £1! This is perfect for Halloween to create the perfect autumnal/halloween atmosphere. The other candle is in the scent Pumpkin Brûlée. I can’t explain to you how amazing this smells…It was form Homesense and was the last one on the shelf so I nabbed it straight away! I just love the look of it, the purple shade isn’t your usual autumnal shade but I love that about it, and can we talk about the lid? Oh gosh, it has a really cute little pumpkin cut out – how adorable?!
Okay so now onto the stuff you want to hear about, the beauty bits!
First of all lets talk about the eyeshadow palette. This is a really new purchase of mine as I hadn’t bought any new eyeshadow for a while now and though it was time for a new palette. I love experimenting with eyeshadow, and this palette shout me colours all over. So this is the Morphe Fall into Frost palette. The colours in this palette are so gorgeous and scream Autumn. Most of the shades are shimmers, which I love and there is also a line of matte shades too. I can definitely tell I am going to be using this palette an awful lot as there are so many different shades for different occasions/styles. Such a good priced palette too for so many shades!
Next onto lips, I have picked my 3 faves for this coming Autumn – one is an old fave and the other two are new purchases and I can’t wait to wear them! My old fave is Sin by Mac. This is a matte dark berry shade, it was my first real dark lipstick and I fell in love with it straight away, the perfect Autumnal colour! I have also chosen a new gloss which is Sheer Rose by PIXI Beauty I am not normally a gloss kinda gal, but this one from PIXI totally changed my mind, the colour is gorgeous on it’s own for a subtle hint of rose colour, or you can add it to a lipstick also to give it extra colour and shine. It’s not as sticky as other glosses I have tried and also really does last for quite a while. Last but not least, I bought a liquid lipstick in Scandalous by NYX. This is a really daring shade for me and very much out of my comfort zone, but weirdly enough I love it. The shade is almost like a dark grey, well it basically is dark grey! I haven’t seen this anywhere before and really wanted to try it, to be honest I thought I’d hate it on me but I am proven wrong. I can’t wait to wear this shade more now it is officially Autumn – the perfect shade for Halloween.
Onto cheeks, I really love the Maybelline Balm & Blush in Shimmering Bronze. I really love this little gem, it gives you an instant shimmer and glow for when your skin is feeling dry and sore from the chilly weather. You can also use this on your lips too to give them some moisture if you want, and it will also give them a little bit of colour so it’s a good duo product!
What are your favourite Autumnal beauty picks?
