AUTUMN BEAUTY COLOURS
I love autumn! The changing colours of the leaves, the brisk cool mornings and mild days, it’s all so lovely. Truth be told, so far though we are halfway through Autumn in my corner of the world, it still feels like summer. Each day the sun blinds me from our big windows and I am still wearing summer clothing, overheating. But soon, soon, I look forward to cooler days. Inspired by the vivid bright colours on my walks through Hyde Park, where the leaves are finally changing colour, I wanted to share some autumn beauty makeup looks.
Featuring some bright reds, orange-toned reds, peachy nudes and a few shades in between. I’ve had the pleasure of trying some limited edition new releases from Bobbi Brown as well as classics from Nude by Nature. Keep scrolling for all the details.
Pictured above I am wearing the Candy Apple shade, a rich yellow-red from Bobbi Brown’s new release Crushed Shine Jelly Stick collection. It’s a beautiful classic red shade that feels perfect to add a pop of red to a neutral look. I’ve always been a sucker for a bold red lip, so I was very excited about this one. The Jelly Sticks are moisturising and buildable so you can opt for a sheer finish or go for full coverage. The shine is not unlike a lip balm with no stickiness. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid and Fruit Oils like Apricot, Sweet Cherry, and Papaya, these moisturising lipsticks help plump and smooth while instantly improving lips’ moisture barrier. I love the smooth glide-on application too. Below I am wearing the shade Papaya, an orange-red that is beautiful for every day.
Over the past month or so I’ve also been using the Natural Mineral Cover Foundation (I’m shade N4 Medium) from Nude by Nature. Housed in the new luxe rose gold packaging, it is suitable for sensitive skin, contains no bismuth or talc, is non-comedogenic, it’s also SPF 15+! It’s been so nice to apply this instead of a heavy foundation, particularly during hot humid days. It’s buildable coverage, so you can go light or ramp things up if you need fuller coverage. The formula evens out the complexion, covers redness and pigmentation and conceals large pores. Of course, this one is vegan, cruelty-free and fragrance-free too.
The finishing touch! I have one of each shade in the Translucent Loose Finishing Powder range to extend makeup-wear. Its unique feather-light formula helps control oil and shine while disguising fine lines and wrinkles with its light-reflecting microparticles. I have combination skin and hate the forehead shine I get so this is a must for me. The powder is composed of active natural ingredients including Kaolin Clay for a radiant flawless complexion.
To bake I use Translucent Loose Finishing Powder in 04 Banana, to brighten I use 03 Soft Rose & to set the look I dust on 02 Pearl.
I love a good matte finish lipstick, but traditionally they can be ultra drying and damaging for the skin. Not with this one! The velvet-smooth texture of the Nude by Nature Creamy Matte Lipstick glides on for a soft-focus finish and comfortable, lasting wear. It is highly pigmented and richly formulated with active natural ingredients including Vitamin E and the native Australian Kakadu Plum to help provide antioxidant defence. Conditioning Mango Seed Butter, Castor Seed Oil, and unique moisturising microspheres deliver superior performance and comfort. Above I am wearing the shade 04 Peach and below 07 Red Blossom.
Underneath I also apply the Nude by Nature Perfecting Lip Primer to make sure my lips are extra hydrated. It also helps to extend wear and prevent feathering.
Above and below I am wearing two shades from the Moisture Shine Lipstick collection, 06 Dusky Nude and 08 Garnet. The colour-rich Moisture Shine Lipstick delivers an effortless sweep of colour, silky feel and luminous shine. These are beautiful lipsticks for comfortable everyday wear. I love the colour options, which range from nude to deep plummy reds with ten shades in between. The smooth, creamy texture combines active natural ingredients including Vitamin E and the native Australian Kakadu Plum to help provide antioxidant defence.
