Products Of The Day #9 : Autumn Inspired

I refuse to believe that the one warm week we had, was our Summer.

Seven days of sunshine and it seems that was our lot. Since then, it has been all grey clouds and rain. A huge amount of rain (joy). So I can't help but feel a little bit Autumn inspired as I'm cracking out the jumpers again and even some coats - it's shameful really. 

Here are a few of today's deep rose & berry picks...

The YSL Teint Touche Eclat Foundation probably won't come as a surprise, but I like to be prepared with a little SPF and light coverage incase the sun actually does decide to ever come out. Followed by Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer on those giant bags of mine. For my brows I used Mac Omega eyeshadow, which I somehow managed to not photograph!

Onto eyes, I opted for the two light matte shades in the Stila In The Light palette (yes, still loving this). I can't get enough of the plum/taupe-ness of 'bliss', with a little bit of 'sandstone' in the crease to add some definition. Nothing too fancy for day to day wear, but still quite put together! As the eyes were kept fairly simple, I added a swipe of Soap & Glory Super Cat Eye Liner which, at £6, is pretty much my holy-grail liner.

Then I added one of my all time favourite blushers; NARS Douceur for a pretty, subtle hint of colour. If I'm ever going for a heavier lip, or just generally unsure of what blush would compliment a certain look - I always reach for this. Followed by a smidgen of MAC Soft & Gentle highlighter to give a bit of glow to an otherwise fairly matte 'look'. 

Finally, onto the lips, I've really been enjoying combining two products lately; the Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter and Maybelline Colour Sensation in Pleasure Me Red - the lipstick is far too bold for me on a day to day basis, but gentled patted on over some tinted lip balm and it's lovely & wearable again! Plus together it keeps my lips nice and moisturised too, bonus!
