Autumn favourites: makeup



I was planning to write an Autumn favourites post in October, but I didn't really have time for it. I used to keep my makeup in the master bedroom upstairs, but I decided to move it downstairs and create my dressing room/playroom for Zac and I am still working on it. I will share the final effect on the blog soon and if you want to see a sneak peek, I can add a post about it on Sunday. Let me know :)

Here are the products I have been loving this Autumn:

I usually don't wear makeup at home, but I have been  using  three foundations quite often. On lazy days I reach for Ginvera BB cream*. It gives great coverage and looks very natural and I use it on my "no makeup" days to even out my skin tone :) If I am "putting my face on" I use Revlon PhotoReady or Liz Earle Signature Foundation*. The are both great products, but the Liz Earle foundation is definitely more creamy, more moisturising and also lasts longer- basically all day if it is set with powder.

Speaking of which, I am totally in love with the beautiful Clarins Odyssey Face Palette*. It is such an amazing powder. It is very light and gives a lovely matte finish without exaggerating dry patches on my skin. For my eyes, I have been  using the Clarins Odyssey Eyeshadow Quartet* and Vintage Urban Decay eyeshadow in shade Last Call. I went through my makeup collection and found my vintage UD eye shadows and as soon as I seen Last Call I knew that it will be loved again :) I have a FOTD post with it prepared :)

Most of my lipstick collection is being neglected at the moment and I am using two products- Lily Lolo lipstick in shade Demure and Liz Earle Lipstick in shade 04 Raspberry* the Lily Lolo lipstick is  a beautiful peachy shade and I ordered it from feelunique for only £7.99 with free p&p! Bargain! The Liz Earle lipstick is very moisturising, as good as a lip balm, but very pigmented and with a beautiful shine to it. Another product I need to mention is the Look Beauty Brow Kit*. I don't even know where to start- it is amazing! I will be reviewing it soon, because it deserves to be praised in a separate post. The last thing is the gorgeous  Bourjois Queen Attitude Khol Kajal* It is a lovely, creamy black eye pencil, perfect for a smokey eye or to add some definition to the lash line. The beautiful packaging is a bonus! What have you been wearing this Autumn?
