Autumn Beauty Picks - 2015

I know I'm a little late to the party, but today I'm bringing you my Autumn beauty picks. I was originally planning on just a lip or nail post, but I had so many products I wanted to show that I decided to just do a full post on all of my favourite beauty products for Autumn!

I don't really change up my base products for autumn, they tend to just stay the same. But recently I've been loving the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink, it's a matte darker pink that seems perfect for Autumn.
Yes, I finally bought another one of these blushes and I'm loving it. It's so pigmented and I need to watch how much I apply as I have a tendency to go a bit OTT and look like Coco the Clown...

I am also using the Benefit Rockateur blush from my Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Blush Palette a lot more. This palette was part of Benefit's Christmas Range from last year, which was limited edition (Sorry!) but there's a similar palette out this year which you can see it here! This is a rose gold-y colour, and has the tiniest bit of shimmer in it, which just looks so nice on your cheeks. 

For eyes, I'm using my Seventeen Eye Eye Shadow in Rose Quartz. I am in love with this eyeshadow, you can just apply a light wash of colour all over your lids which looks so pretty, or you can build it up for a really opaque colour. It's a purple-y brown colour, with lots of shimmer, and I've been wearing this loads over the past few weeks. The only problem I have with this is that it smashes so easily, my one has smashed and cracked so much that I can see the bottom of the pan!

I've also been bringing out my Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay out again. Oh, how I've missed wearing this palette all the time! The shadows are all cool toned, and I'm just finding myself always reaching for this palette when I'm doing my makeup. I normally use Booty Call all over my lid, and then use Tease in the crease and under my eye for a really quick and easy look. 

Not going to lie, I felt like a proper hardcore beauty blogger when I took this picture.

For lips, I first have the Rimmel Provocalips Lip Lacquer 'thing' in 200 'I'll Call You'. One of my friends gave me this last Christmas, and to be honest, I haven't worn it much because it' quite an intense bright plum-y pink colour, but I am determined to wear this as it's such a good colour for Autumn! It also has amazing staying power, so if you fancy keeping your lip product on for literally 24 hours, then this is for you. - I'm not even exaggerating.

I then have the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in Viva Violet, which I think I mentioned in some sort of Autumn themed post last year. This is a dark fuschia colour and I do occasionally wear this by dabbing it on my lips and then blending it with my fingers for a more subtle look or just applying it straight from the tube.

A really good lip combo I've found is the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in 024 'Red Diva' paired with the very hyped up Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 (Okay, I now realise I've went a bit Rimmel-heavy when I was sorting out this post, I promise I'm not sponsored by Rimmel, I apparently just really enjoy their lip products). Everyone loves a bit of 107 don't they? It's sure to be featured in almost every Autumn themed blog post or Youtube video until after Christmas, including mine. The lip liner is amazing too, it works wonders at keeping this lipstick on all day/night, and I never have to reapply!

The last lip product is the MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy, which is another extremely hyped up beauty product. It's a matte brown colour, and feels so nice on my lips and I am just obsessed with this lip product, I've been wearing it so much in the past few months.

I love wearing dark nail polish in the Autumn and Winter, I've been reaching for darker nail polishes recently. A few of my favourites are Black Cherries by Rimmel - a very dark purple colour; Bahama Mama and Dressed to Kilt by Essie - a dark purple-y red, and a dark red shade. And for a nude shade, I've included Barry M's 'Almond', which is a dark nude colour that I've been wearing loads since I got it a few weeks ago. I also love matte nails for this time of year, so I'll be using my Nicole by OPI Matte Top Coat loads, it dries really quickly and makes my nails look so Autumny! (Is that a word?)
