Transitioning My Beauty Routine For Autumn

| Transitioning My Beauty Routine For Autumn! |

September has brought the first signs of Autumn; I'm now greeted by a breath of crisp Autumn air when I leave the house in the mornings, the flitting leaves are slowly making their journey one by one from the trees to the ground, the rich golden hour is becoming more frequent gilding the apartment block across the road from me and I detect a hint of chimney smoke on my evening strolls with my dog. With these changes in our environment around us, it's officially time to start making some seasonal changes to my beauty routine and document it on my blog just as I did for my Spring edition

I love everything about the Autumn/Winter months but I can't say my skin agrees with that statement. As the weather gets chillier my skin starts to go haywire and it becomes extremely dry. To combat this I need ALL of the hydrating products so I'll be using my Too Faced Hangover primer every day. I tend to use it here and there during the Summer but once the Autumn rolls around it becomes a daily essential once again. 

During the Summer I'm all over the lightweight glowy bases but during A/W I tend to reach for something with medium-full coverage and a satin or demi-matte finish. The Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint has a soft matte finish and a medium buildable coverage so it's my perfect Autumn base. 

There's just something about Mac's Warm Soul blush that has the ability to make my complexion look radiant and healthy. The deep peachy pink hue is appropriate for all seasons, making it a great transitional product.

For the eyes, I'll be reaching for my Naked Heat palette as I think the rich red-toned, coppery, brown and deep purple shades are perfect for Autumn. My favourite combination from the palette that is quick and effortless to achieve is using Sauced in the crease and pairing it with Lumbre on the lid. This will no doubt be my most used combination during my first few weeks of University.

I'm not ready to don a berry or red lipstick just yet so I've pulled out some deeper nude shades to tide me over until the apt time to sport the quintessential Autumn lipstick hues. Mac Brave and Rimmel Kate Moss 15 Year Collection in 'Boho Nude' are my picks for the transitional period. Both shades are deeper than my usual top 5 everyday nudes but they work well coming into the colder season. I'd describe Brave as a pinky mauve shade whilst Boho Nude is a deep brown-toned nude.  

The weather has become slightly chillier in recent weeks and thus my hands have already started to become dry. I've pulled out my favourite hand cream, a dry skin saviour,  Soap & Glory Hand Food and I have the mini version so it's the perfect handbag essential! Another dry skin saviour is Soap & Glory Heel Genius foot cream which I'll start to apply soon to keep my feet soft, as they'll no doubt have a hard time in the cold temperatures and being in boots 24/7.

How will you be transitioning your beauty routine for Autumn?

Love,
