November Favourites

Here we are once more, at the end of another two months, so that means I’m going to share with you guys what things I’ve been loving during this time.November Favourites (1)I don’t have a lot of products to talk about this time, because I’ve been loving lots of other cute little things too, so today’s favourites is a mix of everything I’ve been loving!

This Book Loves You | Exactly what I needed this past month. Exactly what everyone needs in their life. How many times has a book told you it loved you? Never. Well that’s all about to change with this innovative book. Breaking all book-norms, this book will talk directly to your heart, and improve the rest of your life.

YSL Deluxe All-Over Face Compact | I really love this compact, because not only does it have a built in mirror (which quite frankly is a life saver sometimes!) but the bronzer is incredible, and I love the variety of blushes that it has. So you can slightly alter the shade of your blush, depending on what kind of look you’re going for.

Star Master | It’s no secret that I’m a major fan of the moon, or the sky, or galaxies/space in general, so when I discovered that I could project a night-time sky in my bedroom, I don’t think I’ve ever bought something that quickly.

Sparkle Shoes | As most of my friends know, I already own these shoes in a pink/gold combo, so this month I decided to pick up a black pair, so I always have a choice of fabulous-ness.November Favourites (2)Flutter Compact Mirror | This mirror is one of the cutest things I own, and it perfectly fits in my makeup bag. I’m obsessed with it.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder | This product does exactly what it sets out to do. Keeps your look matte for up to 12 hours, managing grease and products that don’t like to stay put.

Maybelline Colour Show Nail Varnish in #232 ‘Rose Chic’ | I’ve actually been looking for an accurate rose-gold nail varnish for quite some time now, so during a late night Tesco shopping trip, I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I saw this shade there. It is the perfect rose-gold hue I’ve been wanting for so long!

Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in #3 ‘Vintage Blush’ | I’ve already mentioned this product before in my Travel Essentials, but I’m going to talk about it again because it really is incredible. This product is perfect for when you don’t have the time/effort to create a dramatic eye-look, you simply swipe this across your eyelids, and smudge out with your finger.

Rimmel London Lipstick in #700 ‘Naughty Nude’ | This is it. The nude colour I’ve been searching my entire life for. It’s a natural pink, with brown undertones so that it doesn’t look like you’re wearing a lipstick, rather that your lips are naturally flush with colour. This lipstick is also moisturising and long lasting, so I’d heartily recommend it for anyone still searching for that perfect nude colour.

Rimmel London Nail Varnish in #345 ‘Black Cherries’ | I love this colour for autumn/winter, because it’s a gorgeous deep, well, cherry colour. I think it’s perfect for a casual autumnal look, and suitable for Christmas!

Fall Makeup Tips & Tricks

We’ve all heard it all over the blogging/makeup world. Autumn calls for deeper plum and red shades on the lips, and golden and warm tones on the eyes. So today I’m taking you guys through some of my tips on how to phase out summer trends, and update your makeup bag for Autumn looks. (Along with some added beauty routine tips too!)Fall Makeup Tips & TricksExfoliating & Moisturising | As the cold weather starts to set in, we cover ourselves up with cosy blankets and clothes, and we tend to forget about and neglect our skin. Just because we aren’t exposing it, doesn’t mean we don’t need to be taking care of it. It is paramount to remember to exfoliate and moisturise our skin, this ensures it’s super soft ready for Spring & Summer next year!Fall Makeup Tips & TricksGolden & Dark Tones | Of course, the festive season and Halloween in particular call for deeper, and golden tones on the eyes. Whether you want to go for an all out smokey eye, or you prefer a more toned down look with just a touch of golden glimmer, this time of year is one of my favourites for makeup, because you can be as daring as you desire.

Toning Down | What with turning up the intensity of your lips and eye makeup, you don’t want to go overboard, so you’ve got to tone down the rest of your makeup. This starts with going easy on the bronzer. If your eyes or lips are the statement of your face, you want the rest to be demure and natural. Also don’t forget that the changes in temperature cause your cheeks to naturally flush, so if you’ve already applied a lot of blush, once you’ve gone outside and come back in, your face is going to be too flushed, so take it easy on/eliminate the blush!Fall Makeup Tips & TricksDeep Reds & Plums | Of course, everyone’s go-to Autumn trend is a dark lip. If you’re used to wearing a dark lip, this can just be a seasonal change for you. However, as I know not many people have dabbled in dark lips before, I will give you this tip; if it’s your first time wearing a dark shade and you’re not confident enough to go all out with it just yet, simply apply a little bit of the lipstick to a brush, and lightly apply to your lips. This way you can build the depth and intensity of the colour up to what you’re confident and happy with.


That’s it! I hope these tips help you guys out with transitioning into the Autumn months, let me know if you’ve got any awesome Autumn tips/tricks in the comments below!
