Autumn essentials


It's officially Autumn! You have no idea how excited I am for this and how long I've waited to say that it's Autumn time. This is my favourite time of year, whether that be for the beauty and makeup side, the fashion side or the everyday lifestyle aspects. The whole season makes me so happy. It's about to become darker sooner, colder, more acceptable to wear jumpers and layers but lets not forget Halloween and bonfire night! As soon as I think of Autumn I think of warm toned colours on the lids, thick jumpers, comfort food, Gossip Girl Thanksgiving episodes and my Autumn essentials post!

CADBURY HOT CHOCOLATE
Starting of with a random essential but definitely one of the most important. Hot chocolate. Not 
just ordinary hot chocolate but Cadbury's. I personally think this is the best hot chocolate out there because it's super rich and flavourful but doesn't leave you feeling sick after you've finished. I honestly can't get through the Autumn/Winter seasons without a having hot chocolate and it's my no.1 essential for this time of year. 

PATRICA BRGHT X MAC LIPSTICK
I love a bold lipstick during the Autumn/Winter time and this year was no exception. I have been loving the Patricia Bright lipstick in collaboration with MAC. This is a dark true brown that is more intense on fair skin tones and more natural on darker skin tones. Since I am very fair I find that this can be too intense on me, so I like to pat this onto the lips and blend out with my finger for a more sheered out yet still semi-intense look. Check out my full review of the lipstick here

SOAP AND GLORY THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER
If you suffer with dry skin then you will be aware of the year round struggles, however my skin 
gets worse during the winter because of the dry and cold air. I always use the vaseline spray and 
go lotion, however in the Autumn I also grab the righteous butter from Soap and Glory because it leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft yet still keeping the skin super hydrated and refreshed.

SUNDAY RILEY LUNA SLEEPING NIGHT OIL
Not only do I have to lather my body in lotion, but I also have to make sure I'm adding the same
amount of hydration and moisture to my skin. The perfect product I've found for helping me 
achieve this is the Sunday Riley Luna sleeping night oil. This reduces the appearance of fine lines
and wrinkles whilst leaving the skin smoother and more radiant. I also love this because it's a blue
 oil, which I haven't seen anywhere else before. 

JACLYN HILL VAULT PALETTE - ARMED AND GORGEOUS
I can't express my love for the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe vault collection palettes enough, but the
 armed and gorgeous palette is my favourite of them all. This is full of warm tones; including yellows, oranges and golds which are perfect for the Autumn season. My favourite look to do 
using these shadows is simple yet smoked out. This palette also comes with a khaki and 2 purple shades which help to add some definition and dimension to the eye for this time of year.  Check
