It's time to share my seasonal beauty edit for autumn. This is the makeup I've been reaching for and the skincare that's been keeping my skin hydrated this season...
If you've been keeping up with my skincare posts or you watch my skincare routines on IGTV, I'm sure most of these products will come as no surprise to you! The first thing I'm loving is the Wow You! Zen Cleanser | £15 (use code JASMINE15 for 15% off). This is a cream cleanser formulated with cucumber, oats and avocado so it's incredibly nourishing! It feels like a lovely treat for my dehydrated skin and it's my go-to second cleanse (as well as my morning cleanse a lot of time too). The Pixi Milky Tonic | £10 | full review | is great to use afterwards because it's very nourishing without leaving an excess behind. This one is formulated with oat and jojoba mik. This is pretty much my dream team at the moment for keeping that moisture in my skin.
As far as other skincare goes, I really like using the Niod Modulating Glucosides* | £21 | full review | as a serum. This goes on like a milky emulsion and is aimed at soothing sensitivity, repairing damage and protecting the skin's natural barrier, making it a great one as we transition into colder weather that's harsher on the skin. I find it really great for irritation, dryness and redness. I also love the Dr Jart + Ceramidin Cream | £35.50 | full review. It's so incredibly nourishing without ever being greasy or too rich for my skin. It smooth, softens and moisturises, plus it contains ceramides, which prevent water loss and, again, help strengthen the skin's barrier. Finally for skincare; I still love love love the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil | £34 | full review. It's just so nourishing and softening but has a dry-touch finish, so if you're worried about your pores being clogged or an oil not absorbing fully; this is the perfect option for when your skin needs a bit more than a moisturiser.
- MAKEUP -For complexion makeup; I'm obviously all about the glow! I like to use the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow* | £39 | as either a primer or a mixer with foundation. It's a cream with a soft pearly sheen that gives the skin radiance in the most subtle way. I also recently repurchased my Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (St. Moritz) | £31 | full review. Every time I pick this up again, I remember why it's so great! It isn't anything too greasy on my skin but gives it this gorgeous luminosity. It evens out the tone of the skin so it looks perfected but still very natural. Best of all; it lasts me all day long!
Moving on to autumnal colour cosmetics; I'm all about the rusty tones and warm browns and golds. To be honest; I've been using the Milani Baked Blush in Bellissimo Bronze* | £11 | full review | all year round, but the golden-bronze tone is particularly perfect for this season. The formula is so easy to work with, it has a gorgeous sheen and really lasts on my skin. I'm also head over heels for my new Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette | £42 | full review. I've not really reached for anything else since I got it! It's perfect for this time of year with a beautiful collection of matte and shimmery browns, coppers and golds with this beautiful theme of yellow, orange and green undertones. I then often finish off the look with the MAC Matte Lipstick in Strip Me Down (discontinued) | £17.50 | full review. This is my perfect, slightly warm beige nude, so I'm heartbroken I'll never be able to repurchase it! If you're looking for a similar shade for autumn, Taupe (also from MAC) isn't far off, it just has a warmer, more reddish undertone.
- EVERYTHING ELSE -In terms of body products, I've had two go-tos. The first is the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Riche* | £32.50. I love using multipurpose oils as they're so nourishing for the dry skin on my body and are also great for dry hair. This is an extra-intense version of my favourite dry oil from Nuxe, which I've switched to now temperatures are starting to drop. It's amazing for softening the skin, it isn't overly greasy and I find the pump really quick and easy to use. The second is the Kayali Vanilla 28 Eau de Parfum | £67. This scent is warm, sweet, rich and beautiful with notes of vanilla orchid, jasmine, tonka, amber, patchouli and brown sugar. Yum!
