Now let’s be honest, who doesn’t love snooping into someone else’s makeup bag or having a good old peek around someone’s wardrobe... I mean seriously, who doesn't?
The autumn leaves are slowly starting to fall from the trees so what better time to spill the beans on what my essentials are for this season.
So I thought why not share the love and give you a double whammy... not only will I give you a roundup of all my favourite Autumn beauty products but I also wanted to give you the chance to get your hands on these goodies too by running a huge luxury beauty giveaway worth over £200!
Plus, they come in a handful of beautiful colours, I particularly love all the pink shades as I think they are classy yet girly! I love these so much that I don't just have one... but I've two of these gorgeous MAC lip glosses to giveaway.
Next up E45 Intense Recovery Lotion & E45 Moisturising Lotion. I hate moisturising usually but this leaves your skin so silky smooth, how could I resist?!?! It sinks right into your skin & you can even put your skinny jeans on straight away.
This little goodie is a pre-shampoo treatment from Philip Kingsley and is great. It leaves my hair feeling silky smooth and moisturised giving it that Kate Middleton bounce. To be honest the whole range is amazing but the pre-shampoo treatment really is the jewel in the crown.
Now my mum introduced me to Liz Earle about 10 years ago and immediately converted me. The whole Liz Earle range is amazing and you can't really go wrong. But if I had to pick just one Liz Earle product which I couldn't live without it has to be the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleaner. It quickly removes daily grime and make up to leave skin clean, soft and radiant.
I love it so much I am give you three tubes of it, two travel size and one full size pump version.
My other can't live without product from the Liz Earle range is the Energising Body Scrub. It exfoliates and cleanses, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and revitalised. It's specially selected ground olive stones gently buff away dead skin cells for healthier, smoother skin.
I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish nail polishes. They dry pretty quickly and the colours are just perfect for any occasion. This autumn I am currently craving their Double Decker Red, Black Cab & Black Cherries so I thought instead of picking just one colour, I would just give you all three.
Rimmel Instant Tan in Dark Matte is the ideal 'wash off' instant tan just to get me through the winter! It's perfect for a night out when I want a little extra colour but something which I can get rid of by jumping in the shower at the end of the night.
On my lashes I coat them in Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara. It makes my lashes look big, bold and beautiful and then I line them with Rimmel's Exaggerate Eye Liner in Waterproof Black. I actually bought this on a bit of a whim a few years back and I haven't stopped using it since. It's so easy to apply and it never smudges which is great with all this rain we have to look forward to in autumn.
But when it comes to the inner lines of my eyes I use Elizabeth Arden Bold Eye Pencil in Platinum Glow. It instantly makes my eyes look wider. In fact it has to be said that Elizabeth Arden is another firm favourite of mine and I honestly love the whole range. I particularly love the Eight Hour creams and the Pause & Effect Eye Creams.
I'm a firm believer in you'r never too young to start using anti-ageing products as I think the sooner you start the more chance you have of having younger looking skin for longer. So I religiously use Prevage Anti-Aging Treatment as it's the best I've ever used and it immediately de-wrinkles my face.
I love, love love Aussie 3-minute miracle reconstructor deep conditioner. I've been using this for years, it smells absolutely out of this world - reminds me of bubble gum. It always leaves the texture of my hair in great condition and the end results are FABULOUS! It just does what it say on the tin!
L'Oreal Elnett satin hairspray is the only hairspray I'll ever use. I've used it since I was a little girl going to baby ballet classes and I still use it now. It's honestly the best out there as it holds your hair perfectly in place and is so easy to brush out.
Next up Soap & Glory's Glow Lotion. I love it so much, as it makes your body shimmer without making it look glittery and gives you a wonderful glow under sunlight. Plus trust me when I say that it smells incredible! There's no need to apply perfume after using it as the scent is bold but not overpowering.
EOS Hand Lotion makes my hands feel more supple and moisturised. The fresh flower scent is so good and the container is very unique, durable, and reliable. You can just throw it into your bag and it won't open and leak everywhere.
Ever need a good eye mask when you just can’t sleep and need a way of blocking out any unwanted lights? I use Bella Beauty Mini Relaxing Gel Beauty Mask.
Next up is Revlon's Photoready blush in the colour 'Pinched'. It's nice to use a cream blush to get a more dewy finish on skin. I have this blush in Coral Reef. It's quite a bright colour in the pot, but it blends nicely to a peachy glow on cheeks.
Crabtree & Evelyn English Honey and Peach Blossom lip balm smells really yummy. So if you love the smell of honey, you will like this lip balm.
Clarins Masque 'Anti-Soif' Multi-Hydratant. It's a thirst quenching hydra-care mask which is perfect to combat this autumn weather.
