October Beauty Favourites ♡

I know it's a bit late for an October beauty favourites but I thought I'd do a belated one anyway as I can't wait until the end of November to show you these!

1) Kate Moss Lipstick Shade 03
I'd been looking for a nude lipstick for a while as I didn't actually own any before I bought this one, and I saw Tanya Burr raving about this one in one of her video's so thought I'd buy it and try it for myself. Wow. I absolutely love it, it goes with any outfit as it's so neutral, it's not too pink; it has elements of brown in which I really like as pink lipsticks don't tend to suit me normally. I just love the Kate Moss collection of lipsticks at Rimmel, this is definitely one of my favourites!

2) Naked Palette 2
I only got this about a month ago for my birthday, and I wasn't really sure how to use it when I first got it. It took me a while to get used to the colours, and I did look up a few tutorials on Youtube before attempting any looks but now I absolutely love it and use it everyday. I can't believe I didn't get one sooner! The colours are good for daytime or evening, my favourites at the minute are 'chopper', 'snakebite', 'tease' and 'suspect', shown in the last photo. I might do another blogpost soon of my everyday autumnal make up with this pallette, let me know if you'd like to see that!

3) Real Techniques Buffing Brush
I know everyone on Youtube raves about this so I won't go on about it, but again I received the Real Techniques Core Collection for my birthday, and this is definitely my favourite brush. I never used make up brushes before, I applied my foundation with my hands but this brush gives such an amazing finish and is just so easy to use, I can see why everyone loves it. I also adore the blusher brush that comes in the collection (I use that for my concealer)

4) Primark Eyeliner Pen
I'm constantly on the lookout for a new eyeliner - at first I used the gel liner from Maybelline, I loved it but found the brush quite difficult to use, the gel liner itself is really good, perhaps it's just that my eyeliner skills are rubbish. Anyway, then I tried the Collection felt tip liner which is around £3, and I found this a lot easier to apply so I bought this repeatedly (it seemed to run out very quickly). Then I spotted this eyeliner in Primark and thought I'd give it a try. It's even better than the Collection one in my opinion, and is even cheaper - only £1.50. I've been absolutely loving it and would definitely recommend trying it.

5) Colour Tattoo's in Pomegranate and On and On Bronze
Again, I'd seen many people on Youtube rave about these. I'd seen velvetgh0st rave about On and On Bronze, and Zoella recommended Metallic Pomegranate - so I just had to try them. They're amazing, and work really well as a base, sort of like a Mac paint pot (but a LOT cheaper), they also look really good on their own. As you can see from the swatches they both have amazing pigmentation. Pomegranate is lovely for Autumn, I love wearing berry colours and I match it with dark brown eyeshadows for a smokey eye look. On and On Bronze is what I've been wearing every single day along with lighter browns for an everyday look. I just love both of them and would definitely consider buying more. 

Those are my October beauty favourites! What have you been loving recently? Any Autumnal recommendations? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Love Kate Moss for Rimmel, I have 03 myself and use it so much! A little pricer for eyeliner but try Eyeko for a felt eyeliner, I included it in my Oct faves if you want to know more :-) x
