Being the Autumn/Winter lover i am i couldn't resist doing a post dedicated to some of the products that are going to be well loved by me this season. I'm going to do this post in two parts so look out for more beauty essentials coming soon. I hope you enjoy.....
Its essential to look after your lips over the colder month's as they are more prone to getting dry, flaky and chapped. Its always good to use a good lip scrub often as this will not only put some well needed moister back into your lips but it will remove any dry flaky patches and prepare a nice base for your chosen lippy, don't worry if you don't have a scrub, you can always just cover your lips in lip balm, take on an old toothbrush and gently buff over your lips, it will give you identical results as the scrub would and saves yourself buying one.
Lip balms are my best friend over Autumn/Winter, i tend to lean towards them alot more than wearing lipstick as they just feel alot more moisturising and comfortable. My favourites for this year are 'Cherry Carmex', this does an amazing job at preventing chaps and keeping my lips flake free also i love 'Maybelline's Baby Lips in Cherry Me' this not only moisturises but leaves you with a nice glossy tint to the lips too. Even though like i said I'm not huge lipstick wearer during Autumn/Winter i still do need the go to shade that i can use when i want a pop of colour, I've chosen 'MUA Shade 1', its a gorgeous berry shade that's perfect for evenings out or to wear during the day if your makeups quite natural looking.
Barry M Nail Paint in '273 Raspberry' is one of my all time favourite nail polish shades, its just so gorgeous. Its a plain berry red shade perfect for Autumn and great over the festive season with a nice glitzy top coat. I'm also quite partial to Barry M's Mushroom shade, its a nice neutral brown/taupe that seems to go with everything through Autumn time!!!
Hair & Body
Its strange to think that the cold weather can damage your hair, but the truth be known it can, the cold air dehydrates your hair which can leave it brittle, frizzy and unmanageable so its best to give your hair a little treat every now and then. I was recently introduced to Eden Organic Care Avocado Oil, its a multi purpose oil but my favourite way to use it is on my locks, i simply put around 2 pumps worth in my hands, run it through the mid lengths of my hair, leave it for around 10 minutes and then shampoo out with my normal shampoo, it couldn't be easier and afterwards your left with soft healthier looking hair.
The colder climate can also take its tole on our skin, i always notice my skin gets quite dry and rough when its cold so a nice thick creamy moisturiser is essential!!! My favourite is 'Soap & Glory's The Righteous Butter', its so thick like a body butter yet creamy and just melts into your skin, it also smells amazing and you'll notice an improvement almost instantly.
So that's part one of my Autumn/Winter Beauty Essentials, pert two will be up soon.
What are your Autumn/Winter beauty essentials??? Id love to know!!!
