Autumnal Beauty


There's something about the colder months that always gets me excited, and the combination of hot drinks and cosy coats aren't the only reason why. The colour palette for the autumn and winter months are my favourite; berry, mustard, navy and browns all scream perfection to me. I see an oxblood cape coat or red wine sweater and I just automatically feel cosy and autumnal. But it isn't just the fashions which evoke this sense of warmth or help create the perfect autumn or winter look but beauty as well. You could wear black on black ( as I so often do) and pair it with a deep berry lip and you're already set for the colder months. 

To me it's all about the bold lips and nails throughout autumn and winter so I'm sharing with you all of my current top favourite beauty products for the colder months.

Lets start with lips. You don't need to purchase super pricey high end beauty products to pull of the perfect autumnal look. These four lip shades are relatively well priced from all three beauty price departments. 

I have two lip shades by Revlon, a moisture stain and a lip butter. The lip butter in the shade Pink Truffle I mentioned briefly in my January 2015 favourites still continues to be one of my favourite lip shades. It is a deep mauve pink that is almost brown once applied and reminds me very much of something Kylie Jenner would be spotted wearing during the fall. It is moisturising but a little messy and hard to apply due to the shape of the actual stick but nonetheless is still a gorgeous autumn shade one which is a little more subtle for those of you not wanting to wear extreme colours during these seasons. 

The Revlon moisture stain in the shade Parisian Passion is by far my new favourite lip product and I have been wearing it without guilt throughout the end of summer as it is simple too stunning not to wear. This shade is a deep blue plum that applies super evenly with a glossy finish. It is extremely opaque and lasts pretty much all day but does require a little touching up after eating or drinking to avoid patchy colour. The formula also includes aloe so it is super moisturising and doesn't require a lip balm underneath. 

For autumn I also love wearing the Clinique Chubby Stick in the shade Super Strawberry if I want a very subtle and sheer hit of colour that still screams 'autumn'. This shade is really easy to apply but needs frequent touch ups as it fads quickly and doesn't stain.

For a super deep and dark lip shade I always find myself choosing the Topshop lipstick in the shade Depth. It is incredibly dark and almost black in colour so it is deffinetly recommended for those of you who really want to make a statement. It is a little hard to wear especially for lighter skin shades as it sometimes comes of too vampy. I love pairing this with monochrome outfits with neutral eyes and bronzer. It is a little drying so I deffinetly recommend a lip balm.

The two shades throughout autumn that I love wearing are both by Essie and are in the shades Angora Cardi and Bahama Mama. Both are deffinetly autumn colours, Angora Cardi is a dusty mauve rose and Bahama Mama a deep wine shade. Both aren't streaky and dry super quickly and last around 3-4 days without chipping.

  1. Essie Bahama mama is such a gorgeous shade!

  2. I've just started rocking some darker colours. On my nails, I've got Covergirl's Rotund Raspberry and on my lips I've been loving Shanghai Suzy's Pink Plum. I can't wear too many black clothes as my white cat's fur will stick to them forever!
