Beauty Favourites #13


Here we are again with another roundup of beauty favourites. My makeup bag has definitely taken a more Autumn turn, as all I seem to want is darker lips, heavy coverage foundations and slightly smokey eyes. It’s a bit of a mix of old favourites and new addictions today, but there’s a whole lotta love for this little section of my beauty stash.

I put my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation to one side while I was testing out some other bits and pieces, but I’ve come back to it with a new found love now. It’s so smoothing, long lasting and the coverage is fantastic without feeling heavy. Perfect for Autumn as you still get a bit of a glow with it without being too Summery. On my cheeks I’ve gone back to my Stila Convertible Colour Blush in Rose as, although it looks quite dark in the pan, it gives the perfect rose/berry, natural blush tone when applied. Along with this, I’ve went back to using my Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in Riviera which is the prettiest rose gold toned highlight – so perfect with gold and copper eyeshadow.

On my eyes I’ve been revisiting the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. I’d totally forgot how good this palette is – so pigmented, the shadows don’t crease and they blend like a dream! I think I’ll be using this one a lot this A/W. Next is a new release from Rimmel and it’s the Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara in Extreme Noir Intense. Now, this may have only been delivered yesterday but you know when you instantly love something? Yup, that happened. Definitely pick this one up if you want long, super dark but perfectly intense looking eyes. I also tested it out with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner. It’s a pen style eyeliner and so long lasting, I swatched it on my hand before testing it out and 24hrs later it hasn’t even faded!

Finally, I am beyond obsessed with this Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Bacca, which is the most perfect dark raspberry tone. I really love these Stila lipsticks and am determined to own them all! They’re matte but don’t feel dry, so you can wear them all day without wanting to scrub your lips off!
