So the leaves are falling in beautiful, vibrant colours, its slightly colder and starbucks' cups have got even cuter meaning only one thing.. Autumn is finally here! As much as I love the bright sunshine summer
sometimes brings, I love autumn just as much, if not more! With Halloween, Bonfire Night and the beginning of the run up to Christmas, it's just such a fun few months. One of the great things about the changing seasons is that just slightly tweaking your makeup and accessories can be really fun and exciting without having to spend too much money. So here are some essential (okay maybe not completely essential) products to get now autumns arrived!
Barry M Raspberry Nail Varnish (X). While some people seem to effortlessly match their nail varnish to the current season I've always been the girl wearing black nail polish in August and light blue in December. But I've always loved wearing deep red and gorgeous berry varnish in the run up to Halloween and this Barry M raspberry one is just perfect!
Cocoa Butter Hand Cream (X). As winter approaches I find myself reaching for my hand cream more and more, and I honestly can't recommend this cocoa butter one enough. It smells so gorgeous, is really moisturising and at £1.99 a tube you can't really go wrong!
Bourjois CC Cream (X). Having seen countless positive reviews on blogs in recent months I finally decided to try a colour correcting cream for the first time and am slightly obsessed with it! Its light enough to wear as an everyday base, but is so great at evening out redness and hiding spots. Costing only a tenner its fairly affordable as its pretty long lasting, even if you're using it on a daily basis.
Bourjois Jasper Rose Blush (X). Bourjois blusher pots have such cute packaging and there are so many different shades to choose from. I've gone for Jasper Rose which is a slightly shimmery, peachy rose colour which is really subtle and pretty to wear. It also comes with a little brush inside the pot which although I don't use when I'm doing makeup at home, is really useful to have in my bag!
Bourjois Ombre a Paupieres Eye Shadow Number 10 (X). This subtle but shimmery gold eye shadow is perfect for this time of year and adds a really sweet sparkle to a look. I've found it really easy to apply and it feels special without being over the top.
Coconut Oil (X). Superdrug are currently selling tubs of coconut oil for £2.29 which is such a good price for an amazingly versatile product. I mainly use this on my hair as a deep conditioner or detangler as my hair gets fairly dry in the colder months and this makes it feel so much healthier. But coconut oil is also great for skincare, so please let know if you've ever used coconut oil for this!
Revlon Berry Smoothie Lip Butter (X). Changing your nail polish and lipstick for autumn can make such a cute change and this Revlon stick is such a pretty colour for autumn. As somewhere between a lipstick and a lip balm its really hydrating and fairly easy to apply, although you can sometimes need a couple of coats.
Alice & Eliza Cherry Lip Balm (X). Continuing the berry theme of this post is this lovely cherry scented lip balm from Alice & Eliza. The packaging is so cute, and the actual balm is really good quality as well.
New Look Chelsea Boots (X). Chelsea boots seem to be everywhere at the moment but its not hard to see why. With a great mix of stylish but practical for everyday activities they're definitely a must have at the moment! Although boots are possibly my favourite type of shoes (not really sure if having a favourite is a bit weird or not?!) so let me know if there are any boots you're loving at the moment!
Let me know what your autumn essential is in the comments, so that I can go out and buy it!
