An Autumn Edit.

As Autumn is slowly coming to an end (yes I do count the 1st of December as the start of Winter), I have been reflecting on all of the products I have been using over the past couple of months. Today I have put together a post full of my favourite seasonal picks to share with you, so grab a cup of hot chocolate and get comfortable; this post goes on for a little longer than I had anticipated. 

M A K E U P | First up is makeup, and this is the area that's really had an overhaul since the Summer; swapping berry shades and a lot of highlighter into my routine. For foundation, I haven't put down the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation as the lightweight formula and dewy finish does wonders for my skin, concealing and perfecting as it goes. H&M have really had their moment this Autumn with the re-release of their beauty line. Their Pure Velvet Cream Blushers, High Impact Eyeshadows and Velvet Lip Creams have really stolen my heart and have made my purse a little happier in the process. All of their products are long lasting on the skin and extremely high quality for the price. 

As for eyeshadow, the MAC Pigments and the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette have been my go-to colours this Autumn. With an array of golden and burgundy shades, these two formulas have you covered if you're looking to ease yourself into the Autumn/Winter eye trend. As a smokey eye convert, the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette* is everything I need in one palette. With matte chocolate brown shades to champagne shimmers this has definitely been the palette of the season for me. 

The Nars Lip Pencils have been my sought after product over the past couple of months, collecting one or two every other week. From Cruella to Bahama, these have barely been off my list and are a firm favourite discovery of mine. 

S K I N C A R E | Apart from making sure I double up on a face oil and moisturiser, my skincare routine hasn't changed that much since the Summer. I have rediscovered the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment; a rich, thick eye cream that is lightweight and extremely hydrating. The real star of the show has been the Aesop Fabulous Facial Oil; an oil packed full of skin loving ingredients that  de-congests, replenishes and promotes a healthy glow to the skin.

H A I R  &  B O D Y | In the shower, I have been reaching for any of my Bumble and Bumble treatments. The Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo and Full Potential Conditioner* is a duo that my hair loves. It cleanses, adds volume and leaves the hair looking and feeling great. As it's getting colder, I can't help but take more baths. I recently treated myself to the Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Duet; a set containing both the honey bath to create luxe vanilla scented bubbles, and the soufflé body crème; a product perfect for quenching lacklustre looking skin. 

As for fragrance, I have been completely smitten with the Jo Malone Velvet Rose and Oud Cologne, an intense, rich combination of warm clove, damask rose and smoky oud to create a scent that will have you hooked from the first whiff.

F A S H I O N | This Autumn I have found myself gravitating towards delicate jewellery and simple pieces. After lusting after the Alex Monroe Bumblebee necklace for several months, I finally found a more affordable version; the LVNDR Honey Bee Necklace, and instantly fell in love.  The Daniel Wellington Sheffield Rose Gold Watch* has practically been attached to my wrist for the past three months as the simple, minimalistic design goes with everything.
