October Favourites: make-up edition

It's been a while since I last wrote a favourites post, however today while sorting through my drawers of goodies, I had the urge to share with you what I have been currently lovin'. Easy breezy whimsical make-up fun, right? Although today is sunny in London and the temperatures have been fairly tame, it's definitely autumn, and autumn make-up - as well as clothing - is my fave.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15 (£31) - Usually when AW strikes I revert back to using my HG Estée Lauder Double Wear, but recently I have been opting for a lighter, dewy base. I don't think dewy skin is just for the warmer months, I think it's lovely to have a subtle glow even when the temperature drops. This Bobbi Brown foundation glides onto my skin and doesn't cling to my dry patches, I think it's quite buildable too on those areas that need a lil' more coverage.

Rodial Instaglam Compact Illuminating Powder* (£52) - This a very recent favourite, but still a strong game changer. The new Rodial sculpting make-up collection is contouring made easy and although there are many stand out products, this is one of my favs. It highlights to provide a really subtle shimmery sheen. I could be biased though, as I am known to have a love affair with many a highlighter.

Maybelline Color Tattoo (Metallic Pomegranate) (£4.99) - I am not one to usually wear eyeshadow, however these cream shadows are such an easy way to add a pop of colour to the lids, and thankfully it doesn't take much skill. I like to use this shade on its own, however it's perfect for layering with bronze/gold powder shades.

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour* (£19)- I have a couple of these and they are by far my favourite cream blushers. This plumped up peony shade is of cool tone and ideal for the AW colour palette and is subtle and buildable, providing a lovely flush of colour.

DHC Liquid Eyeliner* (£16) - OK, I have raved about this little beauty before, but it totally deserves the hype. It's the only thing that allows me to create clear, precise and clean winged lines. It is also the one of few eyeliner pens that I have tried that is jet black and doesn't budge.

W7 Chunky Bronzer* (£4.95) - So this product might not be a looker, and I am not a big fan of the packaging, however this really highlights a case of substance over style. The formula is a creamy, matte bronze shade that I find works wonders for contouring; it blends seamlessly into the skin and really adds definition to a dull, flat complexion.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet* (£8.99) - Unless you've been living under a rock, you will know about these little beauties. Such a great lip product which is long lasting, rich in colour pigment and a breeze to use. The shade range is pretty marvellous too, this one is Frambourjoise.
