Autumn is my favourite season! I love everything about it; The makeup, fashion, food and candles. So I've put together my top beauty picks that are perfect for the colder months!
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation // £27
I'm not really to one change my base completely for autumn. I love 'glowy' foundations all year round. But do opt for something more on the matte side, with a fuller coverage in the cooler months. And Urban Decay has ticked all the boxes with their Naked Skin foundation. Its demi matte and very skin like (without being completely matte) it has a good medium coverage that's buildable!
Milani Baked Blush in shade Berry Amore // £6
I could talk about my love for this blush until the cows come home! But I wont. Just know that this blush is beautiful berry shade with shimmers running though it and look absolutely stunning on the cheeks!
Max Factor Crème Puff Blush in the shade Gorgeous Berries // £8.99
I love berry toned blushes. I find they suit my skin really well. And this offering from Max Factor is perfect! Its a beautiful purple berry colour as the name suggests. And the pigmentation, blendability and lasting power of this is brilliant! A definite must for autumn.
Maybelline Colour Sensational Matte Lipstick in the shade Divine Wine // £6.99
This is a beautiful deep red wine colour - I love wine colours in autumn and winter. And everything about this lipsticks ticks all the boxes! The lasting power if these is amazing considering its a fraction of the price of some high end lipsticks. I have a whole post on the complete range of these Creamy matte lipsticks. You can read it here.
MAC Lipstick in the shade Taupe // £15.50
Sometimes, the maintance of a berry, or darker lip, isn't always practical. Especially when you know you're going to be out all day away from a mirror! So sometimes I like to opt for a more nude lip. And MACs Taupe is perfect for those days! Taupe is a pretty brown, red colour with slight mauve undertones. A perfect nude for those olive to darker skin tones. And in true MAC style the colour payoff is amazing! (Post)

The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream // £13
Skin care is definitely something I change up in autumn. My skin freaks out during the colder months, it gets dyhrated and spotty. So finding something hydrating that wont break me out can be some what of task! But I've been loving the this little pink pot! This is a rich cream that replensishes moisture levels overnight! My skin is super soft, and hydrated after using this, so this will be a staple during the autumn.
This little beauty made it into my Best of beauty post. So that says it all. I also love this because it helps with my dehydration and doesn't break me out. This is an overnight treatment that promises to replenish and recharge skin while you sleep! In a non-greasy and fast absorbing formula. This really does live up to all it promises! I'm left with super soft, smooth skin in the morning! And so far my skin hasn't been dehydrated!
I have a thing for Vitamin E - can you tell? This has been a life saving for when my skins feeling paricully dehydrated and I can almost feel it sucking the moisture out of my makeup (which is not a good feeling in the slightest), so I picked this up as a re fresh throughout the day. Its a refreshing tonner in a spray form. It contains vitamin E and Horse chestnut, along with a range of other vitamins to help moisturise the skin. I really like this, its definitely refreshing and makes my makeup feel more comfortable!
I not only love berry shade of lipsticks and blushes but nail polishes too! This offering from Essie is a beautiful deep red wine colour with purple undertones. Its a perfect autumn/ winter shade and has been my go-to so far this autumn!
This is part of Barry M's new range of mid night Gellys. This is a range mysterious almost black but not quite colours. And this shade a deep navy shade that's almost black. I'm massive fan of the Barry M gelly range, the price, formula and lasting power is brilliant!
That's all my Autumn picks. What are yours?
Until next time...
