My Autumn and Winter essentials.

Throughout Autumn and Winter your beauty essentials tend to change dramatically and your makeup bag gets a good refurbishing, (well mine does anyway's). Since we have now moved into the colder months of Autumn and Winter I thought it would be a good idea to show you the beauty products that I will mostly use throughout the cold months.

Throughout the colder months my lips tend to crack and chap like you would not believe, however this little gem came to my attention and completely sorts them back into shape. This is the bubblegum lip scrub from Lush, which you can get in different flavours, and is bright pink in the jar. It smells incredible and is edible too as it's made from caster sugar. Basically, when your lips are chapped you just pop some on the end of your finger and buff it into your lips then either lick or wipe off the access, (I tend to lick it off as it tastes amazing too). It then leaves your lips feeling so smooth and is only £5.50 which you can get here.

This is the intense colour eye liner pencil in the colour Rich Brown from MUA. I love this eye liner pencil because it leaves an amazing colour pay off on the eye and can easily blend so if you don't particularly like a bold line across the line, you can just blend it slightly with your finger or a brush and it still looks amazing. It's totally inexpensive and you can buy it here.

This is the Rose Gold blush from Sleek and I find this blush amazing for any skin tone. The colour pay of is amazing IF you build it up because I find that it can appear on my skin very sheer. I also think that it's quite blendable however not the easiest, but for the price it is a good quality blush. It also has a slight gold shimmer to it which I think adds more depth to it. You can purchase this here

Colours starting from the left; Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe, Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal and Noir, 

This is the Sleek iDivine eyeshadow palette in 'Au Naturel'. In my opinion, this is an amazing palette with a good range of colours including matte's and shimmers. These have an amazing colour pay off especially the darker tones. However, I strongly recommend that if you do purchase this to wear a primer or at least some kind of base underneath or they might not have much of an effect as if they would if there was a base underneath. They're incredibly blendale and you can get them here.

This is the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 01. I would say that this colour is more of a cherry red and is incredibly pigmented and bright. If you aren't fond of brights I wouldn't recommend this as it is very bright and not very dark toned. The colour pay off is amazing however I tend to find that it stains my lips slightly but I definitely think that this will look amazing in the colder months. If you are interested in this lipstick you can purchase it here.

That's it for my Autumn and Winter essentials. Please leave a comment below if these are the same as your cold month essentials too or if you have any recommendations because I'm open for any recommendations. If there is also any blog posts that you would like me to do in the future please let me know!x
