Elevate Your Autumn Beauty with the Basics!

Cue the warmer colour palettes and berry toned pouts, my Autumn beauty overhaul is about elevating your fall beauty look using the basics: illuminator, contour, concealer, eyeshadow and gloss.

The Necessities: Moisturiser, Concealer & Coverage

I don’t need to point out that the change of season brings about changes to your skin, but I will remind you ladies that now is the time to add a little more hydration to your beauty routine. Cue, a moisturising mist! I’m particularly loving the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Moisture Mist, as it helps to sooth the skin and boost moisture levels with Sodium Hyaluronate and Aloe Vera extract.

Prone to dark under eye circles or the occasional spot? Me too! But I’m concealing my late night eyes and hormonal pimples with Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer in Light, as it provides long lasting coverage and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Of course, a powder to set your base is a MUST in the colder months, and I swear by the Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish Powder with its silky, matte finish.

The Dimension: Highlighter, Contour & Eyeshadow

I might be a little late to the party, but I’ve just realised how important an illuminator is to your beauty routine, as it emphasises dimension by highlighting the high points of the face, and creates a healthy, youthful glow.  I love the low-maintenance, speedy application of the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, with it’s shimmery, oil free finish.

To create Kardashian inspired sculpted cheekbones, I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Kit with it’s three natural contour powders and three highlighting powders.

The Colour: Eyeshadow & Lips

Say hello to earthy colours and smokey neutral eyes, as part of Autumn’s colour palette. This gorgeous five swatch Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette is my weapon of choice this season, helping me to create statement worthy peepers, using rich, decadent colours – the chocolate for your eyes. As for the lips, keep them glossy and delicious with a deep berry tone, like this Mecca Cosmetica Tined Lip Stain (similar style here).

Beauty enthusiasts, I would love to hear what beauty staples you are using this Autumn. Drop me a comment below with your favourite brands or tips! x

Lips, Cheeks & Peepers: Summer Makeup Edit



If there’s one thing I love about summer beauty, it’s achieving that healthy, shimmery glow! I’ve been doing some legit “makeup research” by experimenting with a new beauty routine and adding new, exciting products to my makeup kit! Whether you are after the perfect sun kissed bronzer, or a pink lippy that pops, here’s a bunch of summer makeup products you simply NEED!

For Eyes

Prepare to see a return of the shimmer! I’ve developed a bit of a metallic quad obsession, highlighting shimmery nudes, pastels and charcoals. With the rise in nude lip looks, I’de recommend putting a little more emphasis on the peepers with a classic, shimmery, smokey eye. You’ll see me blending:

 Scout Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow; Ice Baby, & Becca Ultimate Eye Colour Quad; Night Star.

For Lips

I never thought I’de say this, but I’m really into the whole Kylie Jenner nude lip, so much so that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick to enhance my fair skin. I’m officially calling of the search party because I’ve found the most flattering pink-base nude lippy from Stefan. *Insert praise emoji*

Of course, I haven’t forgotten my signature colour – pink, and I’ve added two new shades to the collection, with a slick gloss and lip shine!

Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss; Flamingo Crush, Dusty Girls Argyle Pink Mineral Lip Shine, Stefan Professional Lipstick; Nude.

For Cheeks

Now that I’ve mastered the contour and illuminating process, I’m concentrating on the apples of my cheeks, favouring warm terracotta bronzers and soft, subtle blushes, to get that glow! Check out my favourite mouses, powders, and shimmers below! For more fabulous makeup essentials check out the entire Becca collection available at Adore Beauty.

Dusty Girls Sunshine Natural Mineral Bronzer, Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle; Watermelon/Moonstone, Sigma Blush; Mellow & Peaceful.

Of course the finesse of your makeup application is only improved by using good quality tools, so naturally I’m showing off these beautiful brushes by Sigma Beauty. Not only do they come in a vibrant shade of pink but they hold the product beautifully and are so soft against my skin.
