So... September; The month in which i returned to school and where the weather truly decided to turn on us.
September is when i officially announced Autumn into my beauty routine; and i thought id share with you a few stand out products that have helped me make the transition.

I'm a Candle Gal all year round, but this one in particular has made me feel so snug and autumnal.
Its a sweet smelling candle, but to warn you its not for everyone, as my mum thinks it smells like curry.... 

Lancome-Color Design 
Eye/Cheek/Powder Palette-6
This is all i have been wearing pretty much for shadows this month!
As a base i've used the lightest Vanilla-esc shadow, in the socket I've taken Mac's Omega, for the outer V the taupe colour, to blend out the shadows and to warm up the look i've used the blush/cranberry shade in this pallet, and the black colour along the lash line. It creates a lovely warm autumnal look!

Every month Bioderma is a fave of mine, but this one in particular, as i am almost out of my 2 - 500ml bottles i purchased in February.
I have been scrimping and saving it for heavy makeup nights.
But i will 1000000% be re-purchasing once my spending ban ends!!!

 False Eyelashes
Ok Yah, in my eyes an evening look is not complete without eyelashes; now i'm not talking Essex/i can't open my eyes type of lashes, but a natural, fluttery look, by cutting them in half 
They add so much and really accentuate your eyes, when applied properly with eyeliner and all they loook FAAAABBB

Oragins Vita Zing
As i said i went back to school this month and i was after a super light everyday wear base, i didn't want anything heavy like a foundation, so i was looking around the  BB's, CC's and tinted moisturisers on the market when i came across this. 
I've been aware of this for ages as people have said it's lovely for under foundation.
Its a grey like colour which blends to match anyone skin tone (abit like the L'oreal BB cream) It adds a lovely glow to the skin without adding any real coverage its like a sheered down tinted moisturiser; Definatly a No-Makeup-Makeup must have!

Mac Plumful Lipstick
This is by far one of my favorite Mac lipsticks .. actually one of my favorite lipsticks all together, the formular is lovely, the colour is beautiful, its perfect for someone who wants to darken there lipstick for A/W but isn't quite up for a Vampy lip just yet.
I recently have been dabbaling into Soap and Glorys 'Pom Pom' lipstick which is some what a 'dupe' for this!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kajal
I've been faithful the very hyped nude coloured liner from this range in Rimmel since summer, but it wasn't till trying this one in particular for me to really appreciate them; The formula is super creamy but also long lasting, I used this either as an all over base on the lid or pushed against the lash line! 

Dove Summer Glow Lotion.
Well as summer is officially over here in England, its time to crack out the good old fake tan!
As i still have some reminence of my holiday tan im not quite ready for my Xen Tan which im storing for the months to come!
I really love this gradual lotion from Dove, its thick enough so it blends in nicely and hydrates the skin and also is a lovely colour; its comparable to the cult classic 'Palmers Coco Butter' but i find that this has more of a golden colour and the palmers one is slightly more orangggeeyyyy..
Side note!! DO NOT get the one with 'Subtle Shimmer' ITS NOT SUBTLE WHATSOEVERRRRR litterally disco ball for days.




  1. The Lancome palette is gorgeous and it makes me smile that it looks like a pawprint LOL. Xx
