AUTUMN MAKEUP FAVOURITES | BLUSHER, BRONZE & CHEEKS

8 November 2016


Throughout the coming days I'll be sharing my autumn makeup favourites - that is all the makeup items I have been reaching for this season. I've already shared my favourite base products in this post, and today I'll be sharing my top picks for adding a bit of colour to my face!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might know that I am a huge fan of the Topshop Beauty range. One of my favourite products from the range has to be this bronzer! I posted a full review of the Topshop Bronzer in Mohawke back in September, and have not stopped reaching for it since. This bronzer is completely matte, making it great both for contouring or for dusting all over your face to add some colour. The shade is absolutely PERFECT if you've got fair skin and doesn't leave your skin looking orange or muddy. It is also really finely milled, similar to more high end products making this a steal at just £9!

Psst - Check out my other Topshop Beauty reviews here.

At first glance, Benefit Sugarbomb might look a bit like a novelty makeup product. After all, it does consist of 4 different shades! However, this somehow seems to work really well and leaves me with the most natural looking, gorgeous glowy colour on my cheeks. Although Benefit claim that this blusher complements all complexions, I find that the colour pay off is quite sheer so it works best as a blusher on lighter skin tones, but can work well as a subtle glowy highlighter on darker skin tones. Check out my full review + demo here.

Another one from Benefit! The Benefit Girl Meets Pearl is the first liquid highlighter that I'd ever tried, and I have been so impressed by it. Not only is it really easy and quick to apply (even if you're completely new to highlighting), but it can also be built up from a natural-looking glow to a more intense highlight.  Check out my full review + swatches in this post.
