Autumn/Winter Beauty Essentials

Wednesday, 3 June 2015

One thing I love about Autumn and Winter is the chance to play with deeper coloured eyeshadows, lipstick and nail polishes... Here are my favourite Autumn/Winter essentials. 

With the release of the Hourglass Modernist palettes came a lot of scrutiny. I'm not sure whether it was peoples high expectations of Hourglass or the hefty price tag ($76AUD). It seemed alot of bloggers weren't impressed with these, I have to disagree completely. I absolutely adore this palette (Exposure), and its creamy texture. The colours in this palette are rich, smooth and perfect for Autumn/Winter. They can be worn in so many different ways and the mauve tones are perfect for my brown eyes. They can be a little powdery but the colours are well worth the little extra effort. If you're an avid beauty collector than I think this product is worth checking out!

I've had this Topshop lipstick in Inhibition for a few years now and I fall back in love with it every Autumn/Winter. At the time I purchased it, I was after a dark purple/maroon lipstick for relatively cheap and I was honestly so impressed when I found this one. For $16 I have found the perfect Autumn colour that I can always rely on to deepen up my look. 

I've also been loving these nail polishes from China Glaze and OPI, two brands I have loved for the longest time. I find that a nude polish is absolutely essential year round but especially during Autumn. The shade 'Don't Pretzel my Buttons' by OPI is the perfect nude for pale skin. I struggled for so long to find a nude that didn't look ridiculous on my fair skin and as soon as I swatched this colour I knew I had to own it. Nude is particularly trendy right now so I've been using it more than ever. 'Smoke and Ashes' by China Glaze is a little more daring than 'Pretzel my Buttons' but I absolutely adore wearing it with a black outfit on a night out. When applied it is a gorgeous black with a subtle blue/green shimmer.

What are your Autumn/Winter essentials?
