5 Beauty Picks for Fall



Instead of doing a favourites post (the photos didn't come out well, I might still do it) I wanted to share some fall picks with you today. I just love this time of the year - the leaves changing colours, lying on my bed with a good book and a cup of tea, and of course, all the berry shades of makeup ... Ah, it's my favourite time of the year!

As the weather cools down, I like to bring my makeup down a notch as well. Instead of wearing bright lips and nails, I like to tone the colours down a bit and switch my bright pinks to muted rosy and plum shades. For my lips, I've been faithful to two lipsticks for years now, and they're both by MAC. First up, we have Plumful, the most wonderful everyday lip colour for fall. It's a gorgeous dusky pink with hints of plum thrown in, no shimmer, no glitter. It's also very creamy and moisturizing, which I love. Rebel, on the other hand, is a little bit drying, but nothing I can't handle. It's the most stunning dark red/plum colour - again, no shimmer, no glitter. It's quite opaque but lighter than in the tube. Perfect!

For my nails in the fall time, I mostly reach for dark reds and pinks. One of my new favourites is KIKO 378, which is a gorgeous mauve colour, opaque in 1-2 coats and very, very shiny. It does chip fairly quickly, but that doesn't bother me too much. I love KIKO nail polishes so much, and they only cost around 4€ - bargain.

You know me - I'm the crazy blusher lady, though I've been toning it down a lot lately. I've been using the KIKO Soft Touch Blush in 112, which is another pretty mauve colour. It looks very fall appropriate and is matte. I love it, it makes my skin glow but matte at the same time, how is that possible? KIKO is really a brand to watch in my opinion, they have some seriously amazing products.

And finally, I like to add lashings of lashes to any makeup look I wear. Lately, I've been using the Essence Lash Princess Mascara, which I admittedly just got because of the packaging. Is it friggin' cute or what? It has a weird brush, which I kind of like, and makes my lashes really long. It also doesn't smudge. Essence mascaras are a firm favourite of mine, I love most of them.

I hope to put together a few more picks for you, it is my favourite season and I have so much to share. Until next time, feel free to leave me some fall appropriate recommendations below.
What is you fall beauty must-have?

  10. Zelo lepi odtenki. Saj te plum šminke so letos spet in:). Lakec mi je zelo všeč. Rdečilo v teh odtenkih pa meni nekako ne paše. Vsaj tako se mi zdi.

  15. Jaz tudi uporabljam Essence maskaro. Ne ravno te, ampak Get Big! Lahes in sem zeloo navdušena. Sem jo kupila, ker je pač zelo poceni in nisem veliko pričakovala, pa sem bila pozitivno presenečena. :) Super post in čudovite slike - kot vedno. :)
