One of my favourite beauty products to try is foundations. I wouldn’t say I have a ‘type’ with foundations at all, sometimes I prefer full coverage, other times I just want light and sometimes I’m all about a dewy finish whereas others I’m really into the matte look. So, let’s just say I’m pretty open-minded with foundations, yet if I’m honest, I’m often disappointed. I have that skin type that seems to eat up foundation and longevity is one of the areas where I’m nearly always let down. I love cushion foundations but one of my main gripes with them is that they never seem to hang around for long on my skin so when I heard about the new ‘Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation*’ I was intrigued, so let’s see how I got on.
We’ve finally arrived people, we’re at the end of the road. The end of the autumn series. Now, I don’t normally include an eyeshadow section to my seasonal series and that’s simply because I mainly use palettes which are pretty versatile for all year around. But there’s something about autumn that just encourages me to go back to certain favourites which I don’t generally gravitate towards all year round and some of my favourite palettes get pushed to the side because they don’t fit into that ‘autumnal aesthetic’. So for the last time, let’s see the chosen few.
I started a YouTube channel last month and so far I’ve focused my efforts on making vlogs, but a lookbook has been on the forefront of my mind for months now. I started doing some style posts last year and whilst I liked them, I always thought that a video would be better so you can really see how the outfit moves and comes together, plus lookbooks are probably my favourite thing to watch on YouTube. It was a challenging one, very time-consuming and I had to battle with everchanging weather and looking confident on the camera but I’m so pleased with the result.
Today in my autumn collection series I’m talking all about blushers. I struggle a little with blusher in autumn, I feel it hard to find ones that go nicely with a copper eye and berry lip without overshadowing the look. My blush collection definitely favours pinks and peaches which are perfect for spring and summer, and even winter sometimes, but autumn is just a no-no. Over the years I have built up a small collection of autumnal blushers which tick all the boxes, so if you struggle too, you might just find some gems here.
All this week I’ve been talking about my favourite autumnal makeup and one of my other favourite things to switch up is my nail polish. I’m a big fan of seasonal nail polish – I’m very strict as to when and where certain hues make an appearance. I have quite the collection of autumn-appropriate varnishes so it was a tricky job trying to pick out my favourites but let’s take a look at what I’ve picked for my edit.
