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.

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!
