THE AUTUMN MAKEUP EDIT

Melody

Autumn is definitely upon us, and with the autumnal weather comes the seasonal wardrobe change in makeup. These are some of my favorite makeup bits that I love using during autumn, mainly for their beautiful colors that resonate with the autumn leaves. 

The Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eye Shadow Palette // Vintage Vamp : This is the epitome of autumn in an eyeshadow palette. Featuring four beautiful eye shadow shades for a step-by-step, easy application, this eyeshadow quad transforms from a day to night look with minimal effort. The prime shade is a buttery, metallic champagne pink that easily cancels any redness and veins, and brightens up the eye area. Enhance is the perfect autumn shade — a true burgundy— that brings warmth and definition to the eyes. Smoke is a slightly darker, wine color that gives more depth and dimension to the eyes. Pop is the star of the palette — a scorched golden shimmer with gold flecks, reminiscent of the autumn sun.

3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner // Burgundy Brown : Although autumn is a time for darker colors, the 3CE Brown Eyeliner is a demure alternative to the traditional black eyeliner, and pairs well with the burgundy undertones of the Vintage Vamp eyeshadow palette. With an easy-to-use elastic brush tip [even for beginners], this eyeliner has a slightly glossier finish, that is extremely long-lasting and completely smudge-proof, without any flakiness.

Etude House Play 101 Pencil // #40 + #42 : Etude House's Play 101 Pencils are all highly pigmented, and once set, it does not budge. With a tiny sharpener at the end of the pencil, these pencils make the perfect cat eyeliner, or can be smudged out for a smokey effect. Beautiful as another alternative to black eyeliner, #40 is a deep, mossy green with minuscule golden shimmers. #42 is a greige [ grey + beige] color, and when used to line the eyes, creates a soft, whimsical look perfect for cozy knits during this time of the year.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture the Mats // #214 Wood on Fire : The newest lip to my addition, #214 Wood on Fire is a luscious terra-cotta pink, teetering on the edge of a soft, burnt red. A matte-finish lipstick that dries comfortably on the lips, the creamy formula does not smudge and lasts all day. Autumn is a time for elegantly refined styles and this matte lipstick will definitely be one I will be reaching for often this a/w season.

YSL Baby Doll Kiss and Blush // #10 Nude Insolent : Another lip that has a matte, but slightly more satiny finish,  #10 Nude Insolent is a tad browner than #214 Wood on Fire, with a velvety texture. This multi-purpose product can be used for both the lips and the cheeks — an on-the-go product that easily creates an instantly polished look.

GLOWY BODY CARE

Melody

In the midst of a seasonal change, skincare takes a forefront in the beauty department, and although extra facial care is essential, body care should not be neglected — the skin gets drier and in my case, more prone to eczema. To tackle the mid-season transition, these are some of the products that have been keeping my limbs moisturized, dewy, and baby smooth, whilst keeping my eczema calm, and at bay.  

During this time of the year, dead skin cells are more susceptible to building up, causing dry patches, clogged pores, and an overproduction of oil. But exfoliation can help slough away those dead skin cells, and the Aerin Rose Body Scrub is just the one. This scrub gently exfoliates using fine particles without being too harsh, and the rich, creamy base further softens and soothes the skin — ideal for the autumn/winter months when the skin is tends to be easily irritated and sensitive. Not to mention, the decadent, fresh rose scent is a luxurious experience that lasts beyond the bathroom door. {Tip: Apply this as the last step in the shower to allow the pores to open for thorough exfoliation.]

Following exfoliation, a body oil is key for optimal hydration on clean, decongested skin. Made with Fresh's signature blend of oils — evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and jojoba to name a few — the Fresh Sugar Ultra-Nourishing Body Oil has an almost gel-like consistency, efficiently locking in moisture, tones, and firms the body, whilst imparting an amazing lit-from-within-glow that lasts all day. With a light lemon scent that fades quickly, this fast-absorbing oil is also fitting for daywear as it does not feel sticky, or clash with perfumes. [Tip: Apply this body oil on damp skin for better slip and a more even coverage all over the body.]
