Autumn Nails

Today I thought I would show you what I'm wearing on my nails as I'm absolutely loving it!! 

Sally Hansen complete Salon Manicure - 620 Wine Not. This is the most perfect colour for this time of year an leading up to the festive season! Although it did take about three coats for a complete opaque finish it is beautiful with such full shine! Pairing it with the Dior GelCoat is a match made in heaven! This leaves nails looking as if you've had a gel manicure and keeps polish on much longer! Plus talk about the shine! 

I am officially in love!! :) 

What nail colours have you been sporting this autumn!? xxx

YSL's Youth Liberator Serum Foundation

It's very rare that I use products that blow me away on first try. But when I first used YSL's new Youth Liberator Serum Foundation £37 I was truly impressed!! 

This foundation has started taking the beauty world by storm and I completely understand why! 

The main things I look for in a foundation are radiance and warmth, normally I opt for a lighter coverage but recently I'd decided I wanted something that gave slightly more for the winter but still left me looking natural! 
This truly is beautiful, it gives fuller coverage but it's so glowy and feels so smooth when applied! I went for the colour Beige Rose 50! Which is a pink tone that gives my skin that little bit of warmth!! For £37 it's slightly more pricey than what I'd normally spend on my foundation but I am hooked!!! It is amazing :) 

Have you tried this foundation? If you are looking for a new one I'd highly recommend!! xx

Autumn Skincare Routine

Hello you lovely lot today I thought I would talk to you a little about my skin care routine, as I have updated it slightly now it has got that bit colder. I'll start by saying that I have a sensitive to dry skin type with the occasional tendency to break out normally around my chin area. The main things I struggle with are blemish scarring and open pores. But as soon as It gets colder and the heating goes on my already dry skin needs and adding helping of moisture! 

I have finally tried the holy grail Emma Hardy Moringa Cleansing Balm, as its quite pricey I hadn't ever made the plunge and brought the full size. But whilst in duty free I picked up a travel size to try and I'm so glad that I did. The full size will definitely be added to my Christmas list as I am absolutely obsessed! It takes make up off beautifully and leaves the skin soft, smooth and feeling so luxurious! It definitely lives up to the crazy hype surrounding it! 

I picked up a new toner to try during October Lush's Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water. ' The sea breeze captured in a bottle. A refreshing spray to tide you over.' Ingredients such as Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Rose Absolute, Rosemary Oil and Seaweed Absolute help to rehydrate the skin and remove any excess grime! I really have seen a noticeable difference since adding this into my routine especially with the blemishes on my chin. It contains ingredients that occur naturally in essential oils so its a very pampering product that feels so relaxing to use. 

Origins Eye Doctor Eye Cream I have done a full review of this eye cream previously, and expressed how much I am truly loving using this! It's so hydrating that it sorted any dryness I had around the eye area within just three uses. 

Hydraluron, another hugely hyped product that I just had to try haha. I have been using this serum in conjunction with another to really seal moisture into the skin. 'It increases skin hydration from below the surface with an ultra-high-quality hyaluronic acid that holds up to 1,000 times it's weight in water.' I must admit when originally using this alone as a serum before moisturiser I hadn't seen too much difference, however using it with an oil is incredible! 

I mentioned in my October favourites the NUDE ProGenius treatment oil! I have been using this pretty much all through October and I love it! It contains omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 which naturally help to relieve skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema because of their anti-inflammatory properties. So my dry skin is lapping this stuff up like a dream. I have used it morning and evenings and it applies beautifully under make up giving a radiant finish. 

Lastly in my routine recently I've returned to an old favourite, Benefits Total Moisture Facial Cream. This  moisturiser has a thicker consistency and with their try radiance complex it's captures the skins hydration, maintains it and develops it over time as well. It's fantastic for dryer skin types like my own as its full if mango butter which acts as a natural emollient for the skin! 

So there we have it that's what I've been loving to use on my skin to keep it hydrated now its got cooler! What skin care items have you been loving? Have you tried anything I've tried?
