As the seasons change, so should our makeup bags and Autumn/Winter requires a very different beauty toolkit to Spring/Summer. Here’s our pick of the must-have products for the new season.
First things first, you’re going to need to upgrade your moisturiser. While summer skin is slathered in sun cream and after sun lotion, autumn skin has to face cold mornings, central heating, and a lack of complexion-loving sunlight so skincare is key. That’s why we love this mulberry and collagen-enriched Utopia Facial Moisturiser from Kaeso. It’s nourishing, protecting, hydrating, and everything your skin needs for autumn.
It’s not just moisture your skin needs either. A lack of sunshine can leave your complexion feeling dull, preventing makeup from looking its best. Pop on a bit of W7 Cosmetics Anti Dull Skin Prime Magic Face Primer before makeup to refresh your visage and give you back your glow.
The Eye Palette
AW15 catwalks saw two distinct looks for eyes this season; nude taupe shades for daytime and sultry smoky palettes for evenings. Luckily you’ll find both in this W7 Cosmetics In The Mood Natural Nudes six-colour eyeshadow set; it’s got your peepers covered whatever the autumnal occasion.
The Nail Polish
From rusty forests to Indian Summer berries, nail art fans have a whole range of inspiration to pick from in autumn. Our ultimate favourite, though, is the to-die-for Wild Mink from Gellux. Reminiscent of cloudy skies, natural stone, and seasonal woodlands, this shade is both classy and versatile. The perfect new season pick.
The Lip Colour
Pout fans rejoice because the bold lip is making a comeback this autumn. The perfect finishing touch to a dewy complexion, lip colours should be as deep and rich as a spiced coffee or a delicious red wine. Want the perfect example? Look no further than Max Factor’s Lipfinity Lip Tint.
