Transitioning into Autumn


Hello Lovelies!

It's my favourite time of year again! I love everything about Autumn so much, I love the weather, the make up colours and trends and of course the fashion! So today I thought I would share with you the make-up items I use to transition into the colder months.

So starting off with my personal favourite, nails. I love a deep colour on my nail all year round but in the colder months I really do go crazy with my deep reds, plums and navy colours! Chanel's Rouge Noir has been a serious obsession for me recently despite how hard I try to save it for good wear! I just wish the formula and the brush were better! For a more everyday colour I have reverted back to Essie's Bahama Mama which I was completely obsessed with last year!

For base I always find my skin becoming that little bit drier and duller so to combat that I have pulled out my faithful YSL Touche Eclat foundation. This foundation really just lifts your skin. It gives you such a gorgeous healthy glow, it doesn't even make you look like you are wearing a foundation. It is literally a your skin but better foundation. I will forever repurchase this foundation, I am literally addicted to it! 

To help along with the healthy glow I have added two blushes to my make up bag in the past few weeks. Firstly is my Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon, this gives a gorgeous rosey glow that lasts all day. You only need a tiny dot blended in because it is so amazingly pigmented.  On similar lines to the Becca blush is my latest blush purchase which is the Maxfactor cream blush in Soft Pink. It is quite a similar colour to the Becca Beach Tint but it is more of a creamier consistency and makes your skin look more glowy when you are wearing it!

On my eyes I have definitely stepped out of my comfort zone with this little palette from Estee Lauder in Raisins. The colours are not something I would normally go for, in fact its something a year a go I would have laughed at the thought of wearing. But I have been completely loving these colours the past few weeks! Turns out purple and pinks are very wearable colours for everyday...who knew? And on days when I'm not feeling like being adventurous I have turned back to my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe. Quick slick of this on my eye lids and I'm good to go for the day! 

And finally moving on to lips, I think a lipstick that everyone went wild for last year was the Rimmel Matte 107 lipstick. It is such a gorgeous deep red lipstick, completely unlike anything I would normally wear so it is usually my Autumn/Winter "going out" lippie! For a bit of protection this year I have been starting to use my Korres Wild Rose lip balm. This is a gorgeous nourishing lip balm so it helps combat dry lips, and it also has a lovely red tint which looks gorgeous on the lips! I know the Korres lip balms are ridiculously expensive but I really would recommend them. They are just so gorgeous and luxurious feeling! 

So those are my new additions to my everyday make-up bag for Autumn. What products have you been loving for the transition into the colder months?
