Make Up: The Autumnal Edit

Its almost winter, I can feel it in the air, freezing me, making me not want to leave my house, hide in bed under the covers!

So here are the things I have been loving recently, love love loving, all through autumn to be exact. My stand out bits, the bits I love for this season...


Trusty NARS Sheer Glow in Gobi, with my Naked Skin Concealers in Fair and Pink, love them both, definitely my favourite combo at the moment, setting with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting in Diffused Light as always :) 

For priming my nose and eyes I have been reaching for MAC's Soft Ochre Paint Pot, such a good match for my pale skin :) Definitely worth getting one if you haven't already :) 

I have actually been reaching for a cream contour the past few months, the Sleek (post) one to be exact. It has grown on me, and it blends easily... only if you use your fingers though - just don't use a brush - it ends badly! 

As for blush and bronze, this has been exclusively the Hourglass Surreal Lighting Edit (post) is it worth its huge price tag? No. Is it pretty? YES! So of course I am using it :)

The highlighter of my dreams has to be L'Oreal Icy Glow, it is just so good! Perfect for those of us who are on the pale side, so so pretty. 


For eyes I have only really used two palettes the past few months. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (post) I have been reaching for the more matte shades in, I love salted caramel over the lid and semi sweet in the crease, I then go under my lash line with Amaretto :) Such a stunning palette, just wish they hadn't bothered with the pink and purple in it. 

As for the other.. well the Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette (post) has been the one, SO beautiful, it just screams autumn. I especially love the gold Toffee, oh and Cranberry Splash too! 

As for the Eyeliner, its always Seventeen Wet Look liner, its awesome stuff. Super black, super statement. One of my few holy grail items. But I must admit I have been using the MAC Teddy liner too, which is perfect for under eyes. 

Mascara has been about the Seventeen Super Lash, love it! 

Brows I have been loving the Seventeen brow box too, love the wax within it - they should start selling it separately :)


For lips its all been about Kat Von D (post), she came to the UK late August, and I have been obsessed since. I love Lolita II and Vampira, the perfect autumnal lip shades. 

Maybeline's Devine Wine (post) was my favourite from last year, it has made me remember why I loved it last year too, such a good one... at such a good price too!

I love every part of my routine at the moment, so thought I would share, really hope you have enjoyed!
