NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Early Autumn Mornings Call For...

This week the cold snap hit the south coast, and I am now one very unhappy bunny. The super cosy tights have been whipped out along with hot water bottles and fluffy socks. I've consumed so much tea that we've run out of milk and am no longer think my best friend was mental for spending a fortune on thermal curtains. In short: It's cold here and there are a few lovely products I've been running to in the morning to prepare my face or just take my mind of the whole thing...

The perfect lightweight autumn base: You might have noticed in last weekends video that the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser is now in full swing in my makeup routine. It's light and allows skin to breath, but still gives a decent amount of coverage, and being a tinted moisturiser it doesn't dry out my skin. Something I definitely need in the colder months.

Sleepy eye saviours: I haven't been getting the most sleep recently, so in the morning I've been using the Benefit eye bright on my waterline and Origins Planscription Concealer religiously. They help make me look a little more awake at my desk in the morning and mask the fact that I was up until the early hours typing away.

The little extra pick me up's: Early Autumn mornings in my eyes will always call for a nude lip - ever since I read that smokey dark eyes and nude lips were in when I was thirteen. At the moment Shy Girl is top of my lipstick loving list for the nudes - it's a dab on lightly and go kind'a product which works perfectly when I don't have much time. I'm also loving darker nails and just picked up a new Barry M Gelly polish in Blood Orange. What. A. Beaut. Will showcase that one on here soon!

And finally, I can't live without M&S dark chocolate and ginger biscuits right now. After running out of tea and bread they're making a fine substitute for breakfast...

  5. Must invest in some of these products - it is so cold up north and I don't want to leave my warm quilt until the very last minute! Autumn means the return of Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes though!! Always good!

  10. I'm really considering picking up the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser, but I'm a bit scared to break of my usual skincare and makeup base routine that works so well for me!
    Also, oh my god those biscuits are amazing. Can't go in M&S without picking them up!

  12. Oooo--I really want to try MAC Shy Girl. Coincidentally, I've been reaching for the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer loads as of late, as well; seriously good stuff.

  13. I've always ummed and arred about whether to try out Laura Mercier's Tinted moisturiser,as I already have Origins Vita Zing tinted moisturiser. I love Marks & Spencer biscuits, especially their Chocolate swirls, they are the best and they always seem to disappear quickly at Christmas. I know what you mean about the weather, thats also happened where I live in the UK and I'm not impressed!
