However, we all know Autumn isn't all crisp leaves and a time to celebrate Halloween it also means I have to start looking after my skin a bit more especially my hands from the bitter wind, I usually pop a hand cream in my handbag then somewhere around the house my favourite at the moment is The Body shop ones as they feel non-greasy and moisturising. I also have to look after my lips a lot as the freezing cold wind and matte lipsticks make them so dry, at the moment I have rediscovered an old favourite of Carmex which is really nourishing. When Autumn hits I love baths and particularly a bath which smells of spice and all things nice meaning a lot of bath bombs, bubbles and oils which help to destress and relax too.
Finally Makeup, this, of course, is my favourite part and a berry and copper shades are an essential. I love Berries with undertones of purple such as MAC's Rebel and dark reds like Rimmel Kate's 107 my all time favourite drugstore lipstick. For eyeshadow, I am also obsessed with a purple shadow giving a smokey night time look and coppers, golds and oranges for the day time. I found an amazing orange shadow in Boot's I hadn't ever even heard of the brand 'Makeup Obsession' but the pigmentation is unreal and the best part of it was it was only £2. I have also loved MAC Amber Lights and the MAC Amber Nines Palette which you can see in use in my Autumn Makeup Post (Link HERE).To finish off the eyes a must is winged eyeliner, I wear this all year around but for some reason, in the colder months a wing just looks the perfect addition.
