Favourite Make up and Skin Care for Autumn

As we sadly say goodbye to Summer and Hello to Fall, here is a post that might help you guys prep your skin for this time of year. So it's time to get your heavy coats and scarves ready for the windy weather that's coming around the corner.

Even though I love summer and it is my favorite time of year Autumn is a close second. I have actually started to miss wearing my leather boots and woolen coats.

But as you can tell by the title this isn't a Fall Fashion post. Here is my new skincare and Favorite Make up products.

 A few steps on how to re-hydrate and refresh your skin for Autumn: 

1. So this step is fairly straight forward and one that you should do on a daily basis. Remove your make up before bed. Sometimes it can be frustrating having to remove your make up, especially when your in one of those " I can't be bothered" kind of moods, trust me I know how you feel!
The product I find the best at removing make up as quick and easily as possible is the Garnier Skin Naturals - Micelar Water it has become a product that I purchase time and time again and would definitely recommend this to anyone that doesn't want to spend too much time trying to remove their make up ; An alternative however, for those who have problems such as Acne Clinique Acne Solutions - Clarifying lotion is definitely a go to product! Even though I haven't experienced such problems with my skin this has been approved my a few of my closest friends, which have said that they visibly see results and a clearer complexion after a few uses. This  product clears dead surface cells and reduces excess oil that could lead to breakouts, unclogs pores and soothes irritation and redness without drying. 

2. The second thing I do everyday is cleanse my skin right after removing my make up. Cleansing is very important for keeping your skin clean and clear. I have a number of favorites but one that makes the list is the Clean & Clear Morning Energy - skin energising daily facial wash; It has a wonderful soft gel formula with bursting beads that wakes you up. With a citrus tangerine extract you can imaging the fragrant smell that this little product has! I don't just use this for the Mornings but also at night time, that's how much I love this product and If your someone who wants to keep a little summer vibes throughout autumn then this product is perfect it's like Summer in a bottle! So whilst massaging this onto a dry face I will pick up this facial brush from Primark just to make sure my face is absolutely clean. 

3. For those days that you are having a complete pamper session, then use the Soap & Glory - Scrub your nose in it Special pore refining formula with grapefruit & D-clog micromud. You just apply a small dollop onto your fingertips to a damp t-zone, massage in circular motions, then leave on for 2 minutes. Rinse well and then...

4. Step 4, is were I would usually apply a moisturizer. 

5.After moisturizing your face, you should never neglect your lips. I use the Maybelline - Babylips Intense Care perfect for putting back moisture into those lips! 

Next up is my Favorite Beauty Finds: 

1. Bourjois Paris - Bronzing powder & Highlighter - perfect for an effortless everyday look without the effort. 

2. Loreal Paris - True match foundation - with SPF 17 it's great for maintaining a natural complexion, improving the appearance of your skin.

3. An alternative from the Loreal Paris true match foundation there is the Rimmel London BB Cream with its 9-in-one Skin perfecting formula it primes, smoothes, conceals and helps minimise the appearance of pores whilst providing 24 hour moisture. 

4. Rimmel London - Wake me up - Concealer 

5.  Rimmel London - Stay Matte - Long lasting pressed powder. Helps to neutralize shine for up to 5 hours.

6. Max Factor - Excess shimmer - in the shade 20 Copper. A great shimmer for your eyes that makes you look wide awake. 

 Lastly I decided to add one of my favorite perfumes the Nude by Rihanna - eau de parfum spray a subtle scent that lasts all day.

Stay tuned for an Autumn Fashion Lookbook post.
