By the amount of autumn related posts I’ve uploaded recently, I’m pretty sure you all know by now how excited I get about fall makeup. I’d even go as far to say that autumn is my favorite time of the year to play around with beauty. I mean, you can’t really say no to the deeper berry hues, am I right?! One of my favorite things to do when the colder weather rolls in is to play it matchy-matchy and combine my most-loved plumy / berry products all in one very fall-like look. Here is the trio that I love slapping on and which never goes out of style. This is my cheeks, lips and nails all sorted then.
Cream blushes and I don’t necessarily always bond, as they could be quite the fuss to apply but I am happy to report that I have found my Holy Grail autumn cheek companion. Meet the beautiful Too Faced Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Crème Color in Sweet Pea (here). Its gorgeous medium-toned berry shade has everything I want in a fall blush, and more. It is more muted then your regular pink blush and its lovely berry hues add to the whole seasonal feel, while still manages to brighten up the complexion beautifully. Sweet Pea looks really natural on and its creamy formula keeps my skin looking dewy and radiant. The formula of the Too Faced Crème Colors really floats my boat and I love how creamy and easy-to-apply the product is. It goes on smoothly and you need the tiniest amount for the perfect flush of color – the pigmentation is a real deal. If you fancy seeing how the blush looks on click here.
You know how this one goes, right? It’s no secret that I love a good ol’ bold, vamp-y lip and my favorite partner in crime comes from Rimmel with their stunning Moisture Renew Lipstick in Sloane’s Plum (here) In a nutshell – this baby rocks. From the gorgeous deep wine-red / plum shade to the super moisturizing, buttery soft formula – Sloane’s Plum is a perfection in a tube. When I am feeling bolder but still fancy looking classy – this is my first option. The uber rich color is the perfect finishing touch to any autumn makeup look and I am just obsessed. It compliments the Too Faced blush beautifully and the formula is spot on without a doubt. Oh, and the glossy finish is my favorite part – it is to die for. Full review and swatches here.
No autumn look is complete without a fab burgundy nail polish shade and since I love treating my tips to an Essie, Bahama Mama (here) is my polish of choice. Its suit-everyone deep burgundy-plum color that changes slightly color depending on the lightning leaves me smitten every time I paint my nails. I love how sophisticated Bahama Mama looks and it is the perfect fall / winter pairing. I am not overly impressed by the runny formula but I love the color way too much to send this beaut on the bench. See Bahama Mama in all its glory here.
