Now that it's Autumn and all the festivities are almost upon us, I have started to switch up my skin and makeup routine. Although I do find it hard to say goodbye to my bright, pastel colours, it's time to say farewell to those and hello to deep red and purple lipsticks and shimmery eyeshadows.
These are my beauty picks I have been using quite a lot recently.
Colours associated with Autumn are mustard, purple, gold, brown and taupe. I've been reaching for two eye shadow shades in particular from H&M in the shade Ginger Snap which is a shimmery gold, ginger and Mojave which is a more subtle shimmery taupe. Both of these are great for everyday wear in Autumn, they're not the most pigmented eyeshadows in the world, but for everyday wear they do the job. I love H&M eyeshadows they are so inexpensive and have a large selection of to choose. Also on the topic of H&M I have also been reaching for one of their nail polishes in the shade Decaf, which is a deep mustard/brown toned shade very fitting for Autumn.
I have been going for a more bronze/natural look with my makeup if I wear the Ginger Snap eyeshadow, I just find a subtle nude lip compliments it nicely. I've been reaching for my NYX Lip Cream in the shade Abu Dhabi, which is a lovely brown/nude shade. Nyx Lip Creams are amazing for staying in place and are so easy to apply. If I am feeling more daring I reach for Mac's lipstick in Rebel, which is a deep purple matte lipstick. I love this shade it is very flattering on and these lipsticks in general are moisturing which ideally you need that extra blanket on your lips during the cold months. I haven't been wearing much blusher recently but when I do I have been reaching out for my Hourglass Blusher in the shade Luminous Flush. This is a very subtle pastel pink shade that looks perfect with a natural makeup look and a purple lip. If I am wearing a deep lip shade I don't like to overdo it on the blusher.
Who'd of thought hand scrubs were a thing? I have been obsessed with the LUSH Salted Coconut Hand Scrub recently. This leaves my hands feeling so incredibly soft and smelling amazing, I always like to pop this on right before bed. I have also been reaching for Kiehls Midnight Recovery Oil and popping a little bit of this onto my face just before bed. I use this on those days my skin is lacking something but I don't know what and instantly I wake up with fresh, rejuvenated skin.
