In case you haven’t got the point yet, I really am quite fond of Autumn. Burgundy, camel and copper are my favourite colours but unfortunately when I attempt to rock a plummy lip in the spring months people look at me like maybe I am mad. For beauty this season I’m coveting sparkly eyes and deep lip shades, and I’ve scoured the web for all of the things which would make my wish come true… a girl can dream.
My internet scouring consisted predominantly of me drooling all over the Charlotte Tilbury website with a quick divert to MAC and NARS. CT nails it with autumnal shades and her slap dash approach to eyeshadow application gets me excited. For the coming months i’m lusting after her Luxury Eyeshadow Quad in Dolce Vita, with a scribbling of the Colour Chameleon Shadow Stick for Green Eyes in Bronzed Garnet and a swish of the Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadow in Bette. For supermodel like sculpting i’m desperate for the Film Star Bronze and Glow in light/medium and to perk up my pout the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria which I believe is named after a certain Ms Beckham.
My sparkly eyes obsession stretches across to MAC Pigment in Copper Sparkle and for lips with more depth I want the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. I’m not quite as adventurous when it comes to style and can usually be found in a pair of black skinny jeans and a cosy knit, but that absolutely does not stop me from wanting/needing more cosy knits in different shapes and shades. Zara do autumn brilliantly and an embarrassing amount of window shopping has left me wanting their Hand Made Coat, Colour Block Jumper and Cropped Turtleneck Sweater. H&M has become my new favourite shop and I’ve been eyeing up another turtleneck knit in the form of this lightweight red one, I’ve also spotted this dotty scarf which I think looks like it’s vintage and I loooove that. Finally with every season comes me wanting a slogan t-shirt from Whistles and this one is no different. I actually wanted the one which said ‘Beaute’ but it sold out and I was too slow and too poor (Student Life) and so I’ve now fallen in love with this one printed with a Parisian street name, how chic?! I also really really want this Burgundy Lizard Card Holder which is only £25 and next time I have £25 spare will definitely be coming home with me.
What do you want this Autumn? Are any of my picks on your shopping list?
