My favourite Autumnal beauty picks!
Autumn is by far my favourite season for beauty picks, the bronze tones and berry lips are my ultimate faves. I love rocking a bold lip as soon as the colder weather hits, and the excuse to wear one everyday is a life I'm all about. Today I'm sharing with you my current favourite Autumnal beauty go-to's, some new and some you'll have probably seen around here before - but stick around, there's some real gems...
Guerlain Meteorites Base
I'm usually all about the mattifying primers but my skin has been hideously dry lately and the Guerlain Meteorites Base is such a dream to use. It leaves my skin feeling like silk and means that my makeup goes on beautifully smooth, as well as reducing the appearance of blemishes and imperfections. I love how light it feels on my skin too, it's the perfect primer for the colder months when your skin feels dehydrated and you don't want your makeup to look rough. It's definitely an investment product but so, so worth it.
NARS Soft Matte Concealer
I had the NARS Soft Matte Concealer on my wish list for the longest time and I'm so glad I finally hit the purchase button and ordered myself one. I heard everyone raving about this and it honestly deserves allll the hype. It's so creamy and blends like a dream, with only a very small amount needed for a full coverage finish. With my skin feeling so dehydrated lately, my makeup has applied quite caked over my rough skin so this concealer has been my best friend!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush
My first ever Tarte order included the Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in the shade Risqué which has come in perfectly as my everyday Autumn blush. It's a matte, peachy nude shade and looks beaut on top of my bronzer, whilst escaping my lighter, more summery tones. It's such a pigmented blush too, I'm highly tempted to pick up some other shades.
Laura Mercier Illuminator
The newest highlighter to my collection is the Laura Mercier Illuminator in the shade Indiscretion which has the most gorgeous packaging. I was on the lookout for a new highlight with a bit of an Autumnal glow and this one fit the bill - it's a gorgeous warm copper toned highlight that I feel compliments my light complexion perfectly. It's got such a beautiful glow to it, and can be applied lightly or built upon for more of a pop!
Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights
For all the glitter, which lets face it, is essential at this time of year - the Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights have you covered. They're all gorgeous! My two particular favourites are the shades Bare Brilliance and Rose Gold which both look beautiful applied all over the lid on their own or with mattes in the crease for more definition. Bare Brilliance is a gorgeous bronze with silver sparkle, whereas Rose Gold is more of a peachy pink, also with silver sparkle. I love the shade Passion Light too which is a copper tone with gold sparkle, perfect for this time of year but annoyingly I couldn't find it when taking the photos for this post! Pixi have covered most of the essential shades within this range but it would be fab for them to bring out more tones with gold sparkle because whilst I absolutely love these, but I'm definitely more of a golden girl than a silver one. I still highly recommend these shades as they leave you with the prettiest eyes after just a single swipe and they look good with everything when it comes to different looks. An absolute must have in your makeup stash as we creep towards the festive season!
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color
I'm always hunting out the perfect everyday red lip when it gets to this time of year and this year I opted for the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in the shade Ruby. I love that it's more a lip balm formula than a lipstick, so it's incredibly hydrating and also super buildable. You can wear it like a super washed out shade of red or you can layer it up for a bolder look. It has a satin finish and lasts amazingly well for such a creamy formula. I do think it's quite a pricey lipstick at £24.50, but for something I know I'll get so much use out of, it was worth it!
Smashbox Spotlight Palette in Gold
Another highlight favourite is the Smashbox Spotlight Palette in Gold, it's fairly new to my beauty stash but it's already a staple. I love that you get three different shades in it, so you can mix it up depending on what you're feeling day to day. My personal favourite is the middle golden shade, but they're all gorgeous and leave my skin glowing.
Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp
I think the Vintage Vamp quad from Charlotte Tilbury was a mentioned favourite in last year's Autumn beauty faves, but I could be wrong?! I can't remember how long I've owned this palette but it's still a favourite of mine. The warm plum tones and the golden glitter are just perfect for this time of year, I actually wore this palette on Christmas day last year! I sometimes even reach for this palette just to use the pressed glitter as it's so gorgeous. It's quite sheer used on its own but on top of other shades it really makes them pop. Such a beautiful, luxurious little quad and so worth investing in! Everything Charlotte Tilbs is so dreamy.
So those are my current beauty faves, I'm definitely leaning more towards the hydrating picks and I'm loving adding all the glow to distract from my slightly dull, dehydrated skin lately. What makeup picks are you loving at the moment?
