Fall diaries: makeup favourites

It is the last day of autumn and in the final Fall Diaries post I wanted to share what makeup I have been reaching for the past few months. Each season seems to inspire certain colours in me, sometimes they coincide with what the magazines and latest fashions dictate and sometimes they don't. This autumn my favourite makeup selections were built around lilac, teal and orchid with a stronger focus on the eyes.

Lips and Nails.



Rms have done it again, the lip shine in Royal is a gorgeous shade of lilac, which can be worn sheer or very intense. It works both for day and night, and mixes well with different lipsticks (there will be a post on that). Curious is a muted orange that distantly reminds me of pumpkins, a perfect daytime colour to brighten up a rainy day. Gressa skin's radiant lip boost is an incredibly beautiful product, it transforms your lips, it goes on almost like a stain, with such a beautiful colour. The most flattering orchid I have ever come across.

I quiet like to match my lips and nails, Kure Bazaar in September is a perfect partner for Radiant. Intensae in irreverent is a dark morello cherry, that appeals to me during the colder seasons and is a perfect companion to smokey eyes. Priti NYC in tulip tree is a gorgeous teal, it is not as bright as most summery nail varnishes but still has that pop of colour, that livens up gloomy rainy days.

Eyes.







I always liked the smokey eye look and I have really enjoyed experimenting with the intensity of it this autumn. Living nature eye shadows in glacier*(grey with slight shimmer) and slate*(matt black) are absolutely sublime, the texture is so soft and silky, blend really well and stay put all day.



When I was feeling more adventurous or wanted to match my eyeshadow to my nails, Honey Bee gardens party girl palette is what I turned too. While the colours look really bright in the pans, they are actually very wearable. You can easily wear them as a wash of colour or build them up more intensely to line your eyes.

I am still enjoying all of the above choices so much that I am sure I will continue using them through out winter as well, maybe with a few more deep berry editions, I think with the cold weather and the party season up ahead it might be time to give in to the dark side of makeup.

*PR sample all the opinions are honest, my own and based on the experience with the product

  3. How colorful is that palette! I tried Curious in person and unfortunately I think it's too orange for my yellow skin tone. I'm glad I didn't order it on a whim but still feel bad for myself. :p
