October Favourites!

November is now upon us, which means it’s time to look back on my beauty and lifestyle favourites from the past month! I’ve put together a collection of things that I’ve been loving this month – some new, some old! So let’s dive in..

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick – Daddy

This lippy is the result of a collaboration between Jeffree Star and Manny MUA. This colour absolutely screams autumn to me, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! It’s a very cool toned brown and perfect for those dark, smokey looks that are so in this time of year! It goes so well with the quintessential autumn colours; reds, oranges, browns and yellows. A must have for this time of year!

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette – The Pink Sands Edition

This highlighter palette is everything you could ever want. Not only does it LOOK stunning, but the product itself is to die for!! First of all the packaging is always amazing, I think we can all agree the makeup on the cover is just perfection!

 

This palette retails for £40 in the UK off of cultbeauty.co.uk, which I think is an excellent price. I’ll tell you why – first off the pan sizes are huge, I love this about the palette as it allows you to comfortably dip in practically any sized brush and get a good coating of product, and this means the palette lasts longer than average! The formula of the product is absolutely stunning; it’s lightweight, creamy, SO pigmented and with three powders (SANTORINI, IBIZA and AZORES) and one cream formula (CAPRI) to choose from it’s well worth it’s price! (well.. I think so!). The colours in the ‘Pink Sands’ palette are also perfect for this time of year, with a mixture of warm and cool shades there’s one for every look!

Kat Von D “Shade and Light” Contour Palette

This contour palette is everything I didn’t know I needed! It was so hyped up when it first came out and I will admit I was pretty skeptical because of it. The palette retails for £37 in the UK and I wasn’t sure about the price point, however, after using the palette for the first time I knew I was onto a winner!

Top left-“lucid” (light beige toned powder) Top middle-“lyric” (yellow toned banana powder) Top right-“levitation” (warm toned peachy powder) Bottom left-“sombre” (cool grey toned powder) Bottom middle-“shadowplay” (warmer grey toned powder) Bottom right-“subconscious” (deepest colour in the palette, cool but still with a grey undertone)

The palette comes with six different (all matte) shades; three highlight powders and three contour powders. The powder formula is highly pigmented and the colours come in a good range. The top three light shades are very versatile and I mainly use them to set under my eyes, however they also make good transition colours when applying eyeshadow. The bottom three contour powders are a great trio, my favourite is the far left shadow as it has slight grey undertones, making colour look like a more natural shadow instead of obvious makeup.

Urban Decay “all nighter” setting spray

I have been a massive fan of this product for the longest time and I use it every day of my life! (well, when I’m wearing makeup anyway!).

After I apply my base (foundation, concealer, etc) I always make sure I give my face a spray before moving onto setting everything with my powders, I also use the spray as the final step of my makeup routine. This product is SO easy to use and only takes 3-4 sprays to cover my whole face (although I do use a bit more depending on what my face needs to last through that day!). The product retails for £23.50 in the UK which I must admit I do think is a bit pricey, however, price becomes one of the minor factors when you find a product that actually works and that you use in your everyday routine as it’s SO reliable. I can go out for 8+ hours after applying the setting spray and my makeup stays flawless, no creasing, no fading and no settling into those fine lines in the skin. I really struggle with the creasing around my “smile lines” (from the corners of my mouth to the edges of my nose) but with this setting spray I find it doesn’t become an issue! Overall, this is one of, if not, my must have products in my makeup kit!

So there we have it! My October fav’s, I hope you enjoyed reading them and hopefully you’re thinking about trying at least one of these products for Autumn/Winter 2017!!
