I love beauty at this time of year. All of the Autumn collections have launched and we're surrounded by berry lips and smoldering eyes - it instantly makes me think of Sarah from Hocus Pocus! Even though I'm not the most experimental person when it comes to my makeup I still have so much fun discovering new faves around this time of year. My skin is also a lot more manageable during the colder months so I have the chance to add more products to my routine. Every four-ish months I like to put together a little selection of my top picks for that season and today I'm showing you what made the cut for Autumn!

Charlotte Tilbury Bigger Brighter Eyes | Exaggereyes Palette | I love doing a soft, blown out smokey eye in Autumn and although I don't go that intense I still like to use warm browns to help draw attention to my eyes. This quad has three dreamy eyeshadows and a pressed glitter which looks stunning on the lids! I love everything about this from the formula to the pigmentation, unfortunately, it was a limited edition and isn't available anymore but Charlotte has quite a few other ones that are similar! 

OUAI Texturising Hair Spray* | I hardly ever bother with styling products but this is something I use every time I do my hair. It adds texture without being greasy or sticky which is a big pet peeve of mine and is amazing at keeping my hair in place all day - especially if I've straightened it! I have the travel size and I'm still not even half way through it! It smells amazing too! 

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick | Recently I'm enjoying keeping my base really fresh and this foundation has been my go-to as it gives me a good medium-buildable coverage but still lets my skin show through. Once I've finished my skincare routine I apply it in sections, buffing with a brush as I go. The finish is seriosuly beautiful! 

Glossier You | Who remembers when I used to rave about this? It feels like years ago since this came out but it hasn't actually been that long. This will always be in my top three perfumes, one because it reminds me of good times but also because the scent is so subtle and creamy. It's such a weird scent to describe but it's perfect for anyone who just likes to smell 'good'! My review

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip in Berry-Much | This is currently the only dark lip in my collection but it's the only one I've found where I like both the texture and colour. It's a true purple-pink berry shade and I love that it injects a bit of warmth into the face rather than just making me look ghostly. Love! 

Illamasqua Colour Veil Blush in Tonic* | A few weeks ago I attended the launch event for Illamasqua's new studio in Box Park (which is beautiful by the way) and I got a sneak peek at some of their stunning new products. I have such a big love for this brand as it's one of the first ones I tried back when I wanted to be a makeup artist. I'd only ever used their primer and foundation but at the studio, I got to try their new jelly blushers which have the coolest texture! The shade I have is quite peachy and gives a gorgeous flush if you're fair like me. If you like a creamier formula when it comes to cheek products you have to check these out! 

Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto Replenishing Hydrator | I've wanted to try this moisturiser for such a long time as my skin is constantly craving hydration and this seems to be the favourite for everyone. The packaging is so pretty (you all know I love anything pink) but more importantly this is a brilliant moisturiser for anyone with dry/dehydrated skin. It has a cream-gel texture which feels super light-weight and leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and hydrated without being greasy. It's perfect for underneath makeup too!
