5 Autumn Makeup Picks.

Friday, October 27, 2017
As Autumn finally starts settling in, we're greeted with gloomy mornings, falling leaves, and of course a little makeup switch-a-roo! Autumn remains my favourite season ever, even though waking up when it's pitched black makes it super hard to get out of bed! Although, the cosy sweaters, hot drinks, and berry lips make up for that - kind of... 
Due to the darker mornings, getting ready (more specifically, putting on makeup) can be challenging, so I've streamlined my products so I can apply them quickly, and without worrying too much about the application process! Granted, a little touch-up in my car once I get to work doesn't go a miss, but on the whole, I'm loving these bits! So let's get into it shall we...

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light
Hourglass is a stunning brand, no doubt about that, and the one things I think they do really well are palettes! They can be pricey, but the pans inside, and the overall packaging really lives up to that high expense, plus it's a great way to try a few bits in one! This is a great palette for all your face needs. It contains a powder, bronzer, two blushes, and a highlight. The blushes I love to mix together as they create a lovely natural flush to the face. I love the formula of their powder products, I mean, they're pretty infamous! 

Glossier Boy Brow 
Okay, so I feel as though now Glossier has reached the UK it's become a very controversial brand. A lot of talk about whether the products are actually worth it, or if they have just paid bloggers and arm and a leg to feature them! In my opinion, they've done the whole digital marketing/pr thing very well, and that definitely shows as they have been such a talked about brand! Any who, onto Boy Brow! This is a really lovely brow gel, I love to use this once I've run a bit of powder through my brows. It helps to keep them in place all day and I never get any crusty bits! 


NARS Kalahari Eye Duo
This is my first dip into the world of NARS eyeshadows, and it's a goodun' I have to say! The bronzy taupe shade on the left has the perfect amount of shimmer in it to make the eyes really stand out, but it a wearable way! Then the shade on the right works perfectly in the crease and lower lash line, just to amp it up a bit! These are really blendable and a great little duo for everyday. 

Glossier Balm Dot Com
Because lip balm is an essential in the colder months...but seriously, I'm a bit of a lip balm whore, I never like to stick to just one. Seeing as I have three of these little balms, it seems to be the one I reach for most. It's a very simple balm, no fuss, no frills, just a standard jelly type formula. This isn't just to be used exclusively on the lips either, it's one of those multi-purpose thingys, so a great handbag staple! 

Illamasqua Minx Lipstick
This is always the first lipstick that I reach for in the fall, the shade is just dreamy! It's a gorgeous rich, berry pink shade which has the perfect amount of depth to it. Great for autumn, without being to vampy. You catch ma drift? It's a matte formula as well, so will last a good few hours without any touch ups. If you haven't checked out Illamasqua lipsticks, do, I think they're fab.
