Let's Talk Makeup: My Current Fall Favourites


Fall is truly and well upon us and I can't think of anything better than sitting in my bed under the covers whilst the rain falls slowly outside, writing about my favourites for this transition period into the new season. Besides, you're probably thanking me for this break on all the fashion posts I've put out lately, do not worry they will be back next week. Unfortunately, the hubby was too unwell this weekend for blog photos, but we can't stop and we won't stop. I hope you enjoy this favourites post as I much as I enjoy reading and writing them! Let's talk makeup!


TOO FACED SWEET PEACH EYESHADOW PALETTE | £39
Probably a palette most enjoy using during spring and summer but thanks to its warm dark browns, I have been loving this palette for this time of year. I also find peachy tones to be the perfect shade for my skin tone as they complement my eye colour rather nicely. My favourite shades are Luscious, Candied Peach, Bellini, Puree and Summer Yum, as per swatches (L to R) above. Nectar is a stunning shade too and I particularly enjoy using that on my brow bone as well as in the inner corner of the eyes. This palette gets a 10 out 10 from me, as it really is well pigmented, long lasting and one of the loveliest formulas I've worked with.


SLEEK MAKEUP SOLSTICE HIGHLIGHTING PALETTE | £9.99
If this palette is good enough to be one of Nikkie Tutorials' fav, it is good enough for me. Did I need any more highlighters?! I most certainly did not, but I couldn't resist the shine! For its price tag, this incredibly pigmented and high-quality palette is a bargain. I am not a massive fan of Sleek eye palettes but this is on a different level, and each highlighter is equally amazing. I love using these on particularly dull days when I want that extra glow and when applied with a fan brush, these pop like no other. I might even say these are on par with my favourite Mac Soft & Gentle Highlighter, and that says a lot!


L'OREAL PARIS MISS BABY ROLL MASCARA | £7.99
You know those purchases you make because a YouTuber recommends the product?! This is one of those (yes I am guilty of making too many of those). This mascara is a great addition to my mascara addiction and I love how voluminous my lashes look with just one or two coats. I have been blessed with naturally long and full lashes and I do think that helps the mascara work a little nicer, as I've tried this on my mum who has short and sparse lashes and the result isn't the same; thought I'd mention that. I like mixing mascaras when I want exceptionally defined lashes (mostly because I can't for the life of me get fake lashes right), and this works well with Maybelline Lash Sensational. I begin by applying Maybelline's offering followed by L'Oreal's for well-defined and separated lashes. I reviewed both original and waterproof versions of Lash Sensational here, so check that out if you haven't yet. All in all, this mascara is great and affordable!


MERMAID TAIL MAKEUP BRUSHES* | £7
When you choose brushes because they're cute and not because they're any good, but you're pleasantly surprised when they arrive. Who doesn't own a few brushes from China…and these were too cute to pass up. The whole mermaid trend took over the internet and I had to have these to decorate my dressing table. Some brushes perform better than others, like the fan brush which has become a favourite of mine to apply highlighter. Given the price tag of this set, I can't even complain, they are soft, cutesy and fun, perfect for brightening up my makeup routine on dull autumn mornings when I don't feel like doing anything, let alone get up and do my makeup for work!


DISNEY MAKEUP BAG | £4
Temptation is trying not to pick anything up on the way to the tills in Primark. I fail most of the time and this makeup bag was 1. Disney 2. Perfect size 3. Way too cute, so naturally I added it to my shopping cart. I took this on my honeymoon back in July and it will be the perfect necessaire for my upcoming fall weekends away including a Christmas Disney trip I've recently booked for the hubby and I. Fall is one of my favourite seasons and if I can help it, I make it a Disney themed season! This exact design is probably no longer on sale but I've been eyeing up a few others and I'm sure there is something Disney related in the range mix!


Tell me, what do you think of fall? Excited for falling leaves and pumpkin spiced lattes like I am?

  12. those mermaid brushes!!! so cute!

    I've been eyeing that sweet peach palette but i'm holding off on palettes until now because i just have so many! but until i see a palette that really is unique, i probably won't buy it.

    I've already had a couple pumpkin spice lattes hehe! I love fall weather, but I just don't love the fact that I know it's gonna be cold and winter soon, plus there's less and less daylight :(

  13. Your new highlighters look gorgeous, and it's good to know they're good quality. Also, thanks for the tip of mixing those two mascaras for the perfect lashes <3 I can't get fake lashes right either lol so I'm always depending on a good mascara to do the trick. Oh! and those mermaid brushed are beyond adorable, cutest brushed ever!
