Everyday Makeup Favourites - Autumn 2018 | Lippy In The City

Autumn is without doubt my favourite season. I love nothing more than watching the trees change from green, to gold, to copper and taking in the crisp, fresh air that Fall brings.

I also love the opportunity to switch up my makeup bag and bring out the warmer tonnes that seem apt for the change in weather. Some of my favorites include MAC's Studio Fix Powder Foundation in the shade NC 20. I adore this powder for setting my foundation, and even when I'm not wearing any makeup I can't leave the house without having this in my handbag. This never looks cakey on me and I like to apply it with either the sponge that it comes with, or a large fluffy brush depending on the coverage I'm going for. I've talked about this powder many times on my blog, and it really is a holy grail item for me. Do you prefer a powdered look like me in the Autumn too?

To keep my under eyes looking bright, I've been reaching for my Le Correcteur De Chanel Longwear Concealer in no. 10 Beige. The creamy concealer / highlighter hybrid is on the pricier side, and its comparable to YSL's Touche Eclat (if you love that, you'll love this even more). This product is long-wearing yet lightweight and has a buildable finish that lasts all day. I like to dot mine on, then blend it out with a damp beauty blender, preferably after I've applied my foundation. It also has a fantastic shade range which is a massive plus!

Another favourite is CND's Vinyl Lux nail polishes. Their Wild Earth collection is new for the Fall season and is made up of six rich and creamy shades designed to suit every skin tone and Autumn fashion choice. I opted for the shades Brimstone, which is a neutral beige and Arrowhead, a creamy earthy brown.

I'm obsessed with the two shades and have been wearing Brimstone* on my fingers and Arrowhead* on my toes permanently since I received them. This new collection showcases their re-invented Vinylux™ Weekly Polish, with an innovative ergonomic brush and unique caring complex. The Italian-designed brush allows for smooth and easy application and the infusion of keratin, jojoba oil and vitamin E, keeps your natural nails hydrated and flexible. 

These polishes last comfortably for a whole week on me before they start chipping. Despite my ever growing nail polish collection, the Vinyl Lux formulas are without a doubt my favourites and I can't wait to see their next collection.

If you caught my blog post Date Night Favourites, this next Autumn essential will come as no surprise as it's from the company ESQIDO, who happen to make the most amazing false lashes in the world, and they have now launched two amazing Gel Eyeliner Pencils! These eyelines come in classic shades of black* and brown*. I love the black for when I want to amp up my makeup, and the brown for everyday; the brown also really accentuates my green eyes which I love. 

These eyeliners let you experience all the benefits of a gel eyeliner with the convenience of a sharpenable pencil. They have intense colour payoff and glide on ultra-smoothly. The pencil is packed with product too in a retracting mechanical body, combined with a silicon ring closure to provide an airtight seal, this eyeliner has been made to last. The product formula is waterproof, long-lasting, and lightweight. Trust me, these ESQIDO Liners will quickly become you everyday go-to's.

Last up is two of my makeup bag staples, MAC's Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy (a cult classic), and L'Oreal Paris Miss Baby Roll Mascara (the best drugstore mascara in my opinion). Velvet Teddy is the most perfect Autumn lip colour. The shade is warm toned and neutral, allowing it to brightening up your look in a single swipe. The Matte formula is long lasting too, even when applied on it's own without a lip liner. Have you tried Velvet Teddy before, or it's darker cousin, Antique Velvet?

L'Oreal Paris Miss Baby Roll Mascara is a great everyday mascara, regardless of the season. It's lengthening, volumizing and holds your lashes in a curl! What more could you ask for? The bristles curve around the brush to create the curl in your lashes, which can take a bit of getting used too. The formula dries down quickly though and doesn't flake on me which is always a bonus. 

Which makeup products do you reach for in the Fall? xoxo
