Autumn/Winter Beauty Staples


I've said it before, but I'll say it again: Autumn/Winter is my favourite time of the year! Whether it's the changing colours of the leaves on the trees, the leather jackets, chunky knits and cosy coats, or even the transition in my make up for deeper and darker shades; I am obsessed!

As I've already outlined my A/W Wardrobe Staples on my channel, it would have been rude not to run through some of my A/W Beauty Staples as well.

Here are some of my go-to's for this time of the year.



Eyes

If you follow me on my Instagram (Farheenxo), you may have noticed that I've really been feeling the love for a couple of new palettes in my collection. The first one isn't going to be a surprise to you, but I have truly been obsessed with the Zoeva Cocoa Blends Palette | £15.50 (mentioned here).  It's my current go-to and it consists of a mixture of 10 beautiful matte and shimmer shades which can take you from day to night. It's basically just Autumn in a palette. Another palette I've really been enjoying is the new Salted Caramel one by Make Up Revolution | £7.99. It's so beautiful! While it has some similar shades to the Cocoa Blends Palette, Salted Caramel has 6 more shades, including a beautiful teal and a dark forest green which are brilliant for a bolder look. The shades from both of these palettes are incredibly pigmented, buttery soft and a dream to blend with. To add a little more depth and definition to the looks, I've really been enjoying wearing my Red Cherry Lashes in 213 | £3.49, with the Eyelure Eyelash Glue | £4.95. Red Cherry lashes are hands-down my favourite at the moment, they give you so much oomph but they still look natural, which is why I love them. Teamed with the Eyelure Lash Glue in black, which dries black and looks like liquid liner, it's a winning combination and one that I constantly find myself reaching for.



Lips

I have a lot of lipstick loves this season (...which I will be doing a video on very soon!), but I really love statement vampy lips for this time of the year. Although there are a lot of contenders, my winner for the perfect dark, vampy, berry shade has got to be the Kiko Unlimited Stylo Lipstick in Shade 12 | £4.80. This lipstick ticks all of the boxes for me : the pigmentation and colour pay off is incredible, it dries to a matte finish which I love and for what it is, it is a total bargain. I have a couple of lippies from this collection, and if you haven't checked out the Unlimited Stylo range, I would highly recommend you to! 




Skin

Ofcourse, with the colder months, my skin does require some extra TLC to battle how drying the weather is on it. My two go-to skincare saviours at the moment are the Skindrink Moisturiser from Lush | £12.95 and the Elizabeth Arden Original 8 Hour Cream | £26.00. With both of these products, I find that a little bit goes a long way and they make a huge difference in my skincare routine. I've got normal to dry skin, and with the change in the weather, it's been worse ... this is where Skin Drink comes in! It moisturises my skin and keeps it supple for longer, without making it at all greasy, and even though it doesn't smell like a bunch of roses, I love it and my skin really thanks me for it! I've been using this for months now and it's definitely an A/W skincare staple for me! Totally recommend this to anyone who has dry or dehydrated skin right now. The same goes for the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. Although it is expensive, it's money well spent and I find it being multipurpose really sells it for me. It makes an incredible lip balm, works very well on scarring and dry patches on the skin and it also helps to combat redness and minor irritations of the skin.  P.S.The Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream is currently on offer - you can find it here!

Those were a handful of my Autumn/Winter Beauty Staples - what are yours?
