Autumn Beauty 2017 & Hotel Chocolat

Autumn Beauty Picks 2017 – Edit One

The seasonal colours of Autumn inspire me, warm colours of the crunchy Autumnal leaves displaying reds, browns, russets & oranges showcased on golden branches which look especially beautiful during sunset.

Showcased here are a selection of beauty edits to help inspire your makeup wardrobe for the approaching Winter months.

From left to right:

Limited Edition Clinique Pop in Palm Beach Pop this funky Limited Edition lipstick has been designed in collaboration with Jonathan Adler. A nice twist on the pop with its statement packaging.

Surratt Beauty Grande Palette containing two eye shades and two blushes. The grande palette is a great way to personalise your choices from Surratt in one place, portable, luxurious & lightweight.

For the eyes I opted for Soie a silky nude & Marron a rich aubergine shade, great for creating a warm smoked eye makeup look.

For the blushes I chose Duchesse a Soft Peach & Ponceau a pretty poppy shade. Each blush offers a highly pigmented lit from within look & blends so effortlessly. A pleasure to create something personalised.

Naked Heat by Urban Decay which is one of my ultimate must have palettes for Autumn & Winter because of the wonderful mixture of gorgeous warm tones! 

Edit Two

Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops an illuminating highlighting formula which can be applied underneath or over makeup. Personally I love to use this on cheekbones, shoulders & collarbones to create a beautiful glow.

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette A beautiful quad of highlighters from Urban Decay showcasing four shades, Bliss a champagne-gold pearl. Peroxide an iridescent pink, NSFW a pretty peachy pink, & Side Piece a golden peach.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blitz A vintage retro gold.

Tarteist Metallic Shadow in Pop Rock a Pink Champagne, Vintage a brilliant gold, and Revel a deep red. The packaging is also gorgeous & lightweight meaning these are portable & great to carry around for touch ups on a night out.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight in Champagne Pop which is an easy to apply stick highlighter to accentuate cheekbones, brow-bones, & your cupids bow.

Sweet Tarte Fragrance Rollerball which is a gorgeous scent by Tarte. The scent contains notes of orange, mandarin, vanilla, passionfruit, berry, sandalwood & musk.

Vice Liquid Lipstick in Disturbed which is a vampish deep burgundy, the formula is waterproof yet non drying. Great to create a statement lip!

Edit Three

Lid Lock Clay Base in Butt which is a great primer to lock eyeshadow in place & lasts for twelve hours!

Vice Special Effects in 3rd Degree, a unique glittery top coat to add sparkle to any lip look.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer which is my favourite eyeshadow primer of all time, it keeps eyeshadow locked in place for hours & really does reveal the true colour of your eyeshadow.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Concealer which is a full coverage cream concealer with long-lasting wear.

Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeliner a waterproof  jet black eye eyeliner & adore it even more due to the cats on the packaging!

Tarte Metallic Eyeshadow in Grommet a sparkling black.

Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in 442 a highly luxurious shimmering plumping lip-gloss. This looks so chic when applied.

Tartiest Clay Paint Liner in Black which has been my go to gel eyeliner of 2017 so far, so easy to apply & the little brush it comes with makes applying liner a pleasure!

Urban Decay Shape Shifter in Light-Medium 3 in 1 contour kit containing a mixture of creams, powders, highlighters & colour correctors. A high quality portable professional product.

Tarte Make Magic Happen Eyeshadow Palette which is an adorable & highly pigmented palette containing 9 pigmented mattes & metallics. Each shade starts off as a liquid & transforms into a soft powder, so easy to apply!

Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette containing 12 essential matte eyeshadows & 3 contouring shades. An all in one professional contouring kit for the eyes & face.

Edit Four

Tarteist Pro Glow in Exposed a nude highlight, Stunner an opalescent light & Sparkler a rose gold highlight.

Becca Ombre Nudes Eye Palette containing nude chocolate matte shades to create a natural smokey eye.

Burberry Lip Velvet in Oxblood which is a gorgeous deep burgundy matte lipstick perfect for Winter.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick in Very Pink 360, a pretty coral shade with a beautiful shimmering satin finish.

Maneater Liquid Eyeliner, a waterproof 12 hour long-wear black liner.

When it comes to skincare it’s incredibly important to look after skin, you may want to consider trying laser hair removal for a smooth finish.

Hotel Chocolat -The Autumn Sleekster & Caramarvellous Grand Slab

Photographed alongside my Autumn Beauty edits is the deliciously moorish The Autumn Sleekster containing 27 warm & comforting luxurious chocolate picks & The Caramarvellous Grand Slab containing crunchy & salted caramel notes with elements of both white & dark chocolate inside.

The Autumn Sleekster is gorgeous! My favourite chocolates from the selection are the Florentine Isabelle which is a soft praline chocolate (3rd photo down) & the Hedgerow Blackberry with a gooey ripe blackberry filling.

With colder weather soon approaching I hope that this chocolatey infused feature has given you some beauty inspiration to warm up your makeup wardrobe for the colder months.

Did you know Hotel Chocolat have their own range of chocolatey infused luxury beauty gifts called Rabot 1745? Showcased above is the Cacao and Almond Body Butter which is gorgeous, along with two lip balms ideal for Winter, Honey Chocolat Lip Balm and Almond Chocolat Lip Balm, both scrumptious.

These chocolates were photographed with The Winter Chocolate Puddings from Hotel Chocolat.
