To me, the fall is really a time to embrace deep, dark colour palettes and tones you wouldn’t dare try in the summer. While I’m not quite the beauty guru I wished I was, I love playing with make-up as much as the next girl! This year, I’ve been trying out deep burgundy and plum shades of lipstick, muted smoky eyes, and ombré nails.
While the photos don't seem to communicate how deep burgundy this lipstick looked in person, I still like the effect. I'm wearing Ultra Violet Moisturizing Lipstick by Elizabeth Arden and my most-loved Diorshow Mascara.
From top clockwise:
This eye shadow palette is new from Clinique! From daytime subtle to dramatic hues, I love the colour options. Titled “A Black Honey Affair,” this palette features 8 shades to play with. Don’t be afraid of colour this season! A plum smoky eye is next on my must-try list!
MAC lipsticks are rarely, if ever, a disappointment. This shade in “Dominate” is a slightly metallic, deep purple. For a lipstick so bold, it’s better to keep eyes more subtle. I’d stick to the left end of the previous-mentioned “A Black Honey Affair” eye palette.
Holidays mean you can add a little sparkle! This pressed powder in “Golden Opal Pearl” features ultrafine luminescent pearls that reflect and refract light, creating a subtle glow. Perfect for highlighting cheekbones, and it can even be used to create fuller lips with a dab on your lower lip.
Mary-Kate and Ashley can do no wrong! This scent set is no exception. Both the white and black scent are distinct, the white being more delicate and feminine, the black more sensual and rich. Depending on your mood, the Elizabeth and James Rollerball Set is well-suited. Personally, I love the airy feel of the white.
Part of the Brick Lane Collection, this shade in “Cor Blimey” is a brilliant aubergine, one of my favourite colours to wear this season. I love my growing collection of Butter nail laquers, as I find it relatively chip-resistant and long lasting.
