Autumn Beauty Picks26 October 2014
To me when it comes to Autumn beauty it can mean one thing and one thing only, Berry toned EVERYTHING. I am truly obsessed with rich berry tones right now especially for lipstick and nail polish, as for the eyes I really enjoy wearing warm copper shades. I've put together a list of my current favourite beauty products for you and I really hope you like this post.
Since the weathers starting to get a lot cooler around this time, my skin changes as well. I have combination skin and although it's normally quite oily my skin is now more on the dryer side. Switching up my mattifying primers to L'Oreals Lumi Magique primer has made all the difference when it comes to applying foundation. I don't get any dry patches and my face doesn't look dull or flat anymore. Although I do love matte bases, a little bit of a healthy glow is always nice I guess. Keep in mind that this doesn't offer no hydration to the skin as it is just a primer so don't forget to moisturize!
Moving on to eyes, I have been really enjoying my Lorac Pro palette lately. This palette is absolutely perfect for creating Autumnal makeup looks and I can't get enough of this! My favourite matte Autumn shades are "Taupe", "Sable", "Mauve" and "Espresso". I have also rediscovered my love for gel eyeliner this season, my favourite drugstore gel eyeliner is by Maybelline.
Now onto my favourite part: For lips I go for deeper, richer tones and I especially love wearing matte formulas. Mac lipsticks offer such a nice range of Autumnal lipsticks. Viva Glam 3 is one of my favourites at the moment (here) it's a lovely brown-ish, red, matte shade that would be lovely for day and night time. Plumful is a very pretty plum shade that would be great in the day time. Here are some of my other favouritesLast but not least for nails, again, I opt for richer berry shades and Kiko does some amazing colours let me tell you! They're really affordable and absolutely gorgeous. I love the formula, very good staying power and easy to apply. I love the shades 227, 255, 286, 244. What's your favourite nail polish for Autumn?
