Stormy and Dull is the way to describe this months weather so why would you let your makeup follow suit? I thought i would share with you what is currently in my Autumn/Winter Makeup Bag. In winter i definitely prefer a fuller, flawless coverage with a hint of colour.
The new Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer is a new release which i love. I have been using it non stop over the last few weeks. It helps smooth out my base and helps prevent my oily prone skin! I recently caved in and purchased the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation after seeing so many positive reviews. I have been trying this on and off for the past month trying to make myself love it. I just can’t seem to get on with it. It is in my makeup bag as i keep hoping i will fall in love.
My dark under eye circles definitely make me look dull and drab so a full coverage concealer is in need! My trusty Seventeen Stay Time Concealer is back in my makeup bag as it is amazing! It is a budget version of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. Moving onto a highlight which is my new favourite thing to do in my makeup routine. I have been testing out the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer which is perfect for a subtle highlight. I apply this after my concealer, on my nose, under my cheekbones and chin. It really lightens up my face but looks natural.
Essence is becoming a new favourite brand of mine. I have been using the Essence All About Matt Fixing Powder to set my makeup, it doesn’t add more coverage which is perfect when your already wearing a full coverage foundation. It keeps me matte so what more do i need! Im quite pale being a MAC NW20 so contouring can be hit or miss as alot of products look a little orange on me. The MAC Powder Harmony Blush is amazinggggg! It is the perfect shade, doesn’t look muddy, blends well and works perfect for us pale skinned girls.
Lately i am loving matte eyes rather than all the shimmer and glitter. Don’t get me wrong when its Christmas i will be popping out the gold shadows but for now im loving a matte finish. My Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral Palette is my favourite palette of ALL time! You can create so many looks from the 12 shades and it is a bargain buy. Lastly its all about the lips. I am currently obsessed with mauve shades and the Essence Natural Beauty Lipstick is the perfect shade. Essence lipsticks are amazing quality for such a bargain.
That’s the products I’ve been using, what products have you been loving or hating this Autumn/Winter?
