Autumn is around the corner which means darker tones for makeup! In this post I will be sharing my favourite products for lips, cheeks and eyes...maybe some nail colours too. The products I will be posting about don't only look great but they last all day! Perfect for Autumn.

Personally I LOVE matte skin with flushed cheeks for the fall but I like creating more of a highlighted cheek bone, brow bone and cupids bow for others. My fave highlighters are Topshop Glow dust in Radiate - it is a loose powder - If you have oily skin I suggest using a powder highlighter. Topshop Glow highlighter polish is more of a cream highlighter so this would be great for dry skin, it gives the perfect snowy/dewy highlight look. TheBalm Cosmetics Mary Lou Manizer highlighter - STONG highlight! BB+Illumination by Gerard Cosmetics - LOVE THIS, IT LOOKS GREAT UNDER OR ON TOP OF YOUR FOUNDATION, WORKS GREAT FOR STROBING. *TIP* Apply highlight on temples of forehead and connect with cheekbone to get the strobing effect.

Flushed Cheeks for fall 
Matte cream blush look great on the apples of the cheeks. My all time faves are Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Blusher in Plum, Cargo cheek activator in rose flush - OMG! do they still sell this? I'm trying to find out but it gives the most beautiful flushed look! It is a white cream but changes colour to compliment your skin tone! Topshop Cream Blush in Flush - gorg peachy tone and is matte! NYX cosmetics stick blush in Pink Lotus. Cream blushers are great for people who barely have time to apply a full face of makeup, they are multi purpose and easy to use, you can build the colour up or tone it down depending on how you feel, mosdefinitely a must for all make-up bags!

Perfect tones for all skin types - I dare you to try them!
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Vega Cherry Red,  Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish lipstick in 06 Melodious Wine, Nars Velvet Matte Lip pencil in Deep Aubergine, Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick in Black cherry,  Dior Lipstick in Black Tie, MAC Cyber lipstick last but not least Wet N Wild Lipstick in Vamp It Up.

Always line your lips with a lipliner that's closest to your lipstick shade when using a dark lip colour.

Matte dark nails are so fall! The thing I love most is that I can recommend the same nail colours for everyone during autumn because they go with all skin tones. Here are some of my faves;

Barry M Matte Nail Polish in Burgundy Crush 
Nails Inc Hyde Park Court Gel Effect Nail Polish
Rimmel Nail Polish in Black Cherries
Essie Nail Polish in Decadent Dish
Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Graycious 

I have linked each product, just click the brand nail and it will direct you to where you can purchase :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and are GLAM ready for this fall.

My skin care - Sonia

Hi all, I'm currently going though my skin care list I wrote down and thought now is the time to get this post written. Growing up I always had good skin but a year ago out of no where I started breaking out and it got worse during the time of the month which is normal. I then realised I need to get a proper skin care routine. I will be telling you all what I use keep my skin fresh, clean, bright and how I stop pimples!

I have tried a lot of brands from Clinique, Origins, Glam Glow, Dr Nick Lowe, Lush, VICHY, Mario Badescu naming a few faves but now and then I do like to make some home recipes. I have red pigmentation on my cheeks and naturally I have a pale face which tends to look washed out without make-up so I love using a facial fake tan to even everything out. I like to get about 2 to 3 shades darker because I personally feel the darker I am the more healthy my skin looks. My skin is very oily so I have to be careful when picking moisturisers and makeup products.

For flights I also have a different skin regime and it changes depending on the country I am. I have learnt that even oily skin needs moisture, living in England with the harsh weather we get I have to have a separate one for when I am in the UK and a separate one for when I am in Turkey or Kuwait.

Morning routine facial wash for everyday
Origins A perfect world deep cleanser, using warm water then cold
followed by oil control origins moisturiser (I love origins, I discovered it through my aunt who recommended it as we have the same skin type)
If you have sensitive skin Lather’s Gentle Face Soap is also great, it calms the skin, while avocado hydrates it.

I always wait for my moisturiser to sink in before using any primer, I don't wear makeup every day but when I do I would usually apply Benefit Porefessional primer. For night time I cleans my face with Bioderm and a cotton pad after washing my face with warm water only (twice a week I will use Angels on Bare skin from Lush cosmetics, it's delicate enough to use twice a week and contains the most natural ingredients that have helped fade past acne scars and uneven skin) After I will spot treat pimples with Mario Bedescu drying lotion (it looks funny with pink dots all over my face but so worth it!) I leave this over night.

I go between Dr Nick Lowe oil control day cream and Origins Moisturiser depending on which ever is in stock. they are the BEST for oily skin!

The best way i have seen a difference my skin is when i use face masks, I use a face mask once every 3 weeks. I go between glam glow powermud mask, home made and sometimes the Montagne Jeunesse brand mask that you peel ones its dried - great for taking away dead skin.

Home Made recipe -MUST TRY!
Banana and honey face mask - I mash one banana and mix it with a table spoon of raw honey and I cut a fresh lemon in half only squeezing half into the mask. I apply this to my face with my hands, evenly. The lemon helps even and brighten skin. I leave this on for 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water followed by tapping cold water. Face masks make me feel refreshed and it's an instant boost to my skin. It's messy but effective!

My skin after 10 hours of makeup - After I applied the home remedy face mask, it was glowing because of the skin regime I used.

These are things I have tried for a while and what work best for me, if you have oily skin I highly recommend trying some of these brands!
