Autumn brings me lots of joys; the crisp brown leaves and the excuse to wear cosy layers on the daily basis being a couple of them, but it's actually the makeup that this colder season brings that I'm talking about today.
I'm all about that subtle shimmer and glowy skin at this time of the year as I find that my dehydrated complexion craves nourishing formulas and soft dew. The primer I've been relying on a lot is the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow* which offers a lightweight, blurred look that is the perfect way to set up your foundation the right way.
For my cheeks, I would usually opt for a powder formula, but honestly I can't get enough of the Charlotte Tilbury Contour and Highlighter Wand that I've been talking about non-stop recently. The illuminator gives off the right amount of glow that shimmers in the light and never fails to make my complexion look like it's got a filter on it.
Warm tones run regularly in my eyeshadow looks that I wear and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette* is a rediscovery of mine that I've been sporting a lot during this Autumn. I've been using a brown in my crease and a shimmer on my lid too followed by the Pixi BronzeBlaze Endless Shade Stick*!
Onto skincare now and I've been using the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic* non-stop this season and it's calming formula is great to refresh the skin in the morning or soothe in post-cleanse in the evening.
I've had the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme* in my storage unopened for a long time now and after a very bad hormonal breakout I decided to give these a try. I started using them three times a week, but after just one application, I saw such a big difference in my blemishes. They were instantly reduced in size and felt a lot less sore, so after several uses, they were nearly completely gone!
To note, I've always been using the Herbivore Emerald Face Oil* for the last couple of weeks, but I just had to feature it in this post as it helped my complexion so much. Although I have combination skin; when areas of my face get's dehydrated, these patches get incredibly painful and sore. This face oil has been super soothing and calming on these areas, nourishing along the way! It's thick and luxe which is why I like to use this on no-makeup days or in the evening for it to sink in over 15 minutes or so.
What's your end of Autumn favourites?
