Everyday Mauve Favourites

Mauve is one of my favourite colours, being the perfect variation on the typical nude shades. It's more purple in tone, but still matches a variety of makeup looks and can be easily worn on a day-to-day basis. From blushers to lipsticks, today I am sharing with you my top mauve picks. 

The NYX Mauve Me Ombre Blush is perfect for a soft flush of colour on the cheeks when I want something a little more neutral. The lighter nude hue and darker mauve shade work together to create a beautiful subtle, matte offering. 

Although the Jouer Dulce De Leche* looks rather pink in the tube, it actually pulls a little mauvey on my lips. This liquid lipstick compliments any makeup look, lasts throughout the day and is easy to top up without flaking or being overly drying. 

Another lipstick pick is MAC Twig, which has a slight berry undertone so it is perfect in the Autumn if you're not the biggest fan of bold lipsticks. It lasts on the lips and sits comfortably too due to the satin formula, making it one of my most used MAC lipsticks ever. Nars Bahama is similar in tone and finish to Twig, but the stick application makes it a little easier to apply - A great handbag must have! 

Essie's Ladylike is my favourite of the bunch as the mauve shade is understated on the nails, easy to wear all year round and lasts a long time too. In the Autumn, it looks lovely paired with a simple, black outfit, whereas during the Summer it looks great with an all white dress. 

What are your mauve must haves?
