My Autumn & Winter Picks |

Wednesday, 6 November 2013

I thought i'd give you a little peak into what my Autumn & Winter holy grail items are. These are the products that will be seeing me through the next few cold and dreary months ahead.

Lipstick: Particularly reds and berry shades. An absolute must in the colder months. I especially love the red shade from Bourjois Rouge edition and the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Fuschia (full review here.). They are my go to Autumn/Winter lipsticks.

Eyeshadow: MAC Cranberry & Sketch are the perfect eyeshadows for Autumn/Winter. These two shades in particular are great for creating a berry smokey eye look. They make a lovely change from my usual nude, gold or browns. Such a dare devil when it gets cold ;)

Hands: I don't know about you guys, but I get horrendously dry hands when the weather gets colder. Especially the skin in-between my fingers. The Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream has been a complete saviour! It's so thick and creamy, but sinks into your hands really quickly. My hands feel amazingly soft and smooth, without being greasy. I just love it.

Skin: The past few weeks, since the weather changed, my skin has been playing havoc!! My forehead and  my nose, get really dry, even in Summer! So in Winter, it gets a hell of a lot worse. I've had this Elizabeth Arden Hydration Boost Night Mask for quite a while, and it works wonders for dry skin. You leave it on your face for 10 minutes, or however long you like, and after washing it off your skin feels plump, hydrated and smooth as a baby's bum. (I really don't like that saying, but I couldn't think of another way to describe just how soft it makes your face feel).

Hair: My hair is always quite dry, as it's thick and curly, so anything that gives it that little bit of extra moisture and nourishment is a winner in my eyes! The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle has been a firm favourite of mine for leaving my hair silky, soft and smooth. 


I'd love to know what your guys Autumn and Winter picks are! Let me know :)
