Late Autumn Beauty Wishlist
I haven't done a beauty wishlist post in such a long time.
Mainly because I don't want to look around the shops too much and spend a whole load of money. And also because on the lead up to Christmas, I want to save as much money as possible so I can get all of the gifts I need. However, that's obviously not going to stop me from creating my end of autumn beauty wishlist.
First of all, who doesn't want a makeup palette that is loosely inspired by Harry Potter and made to look like a spell book? No prizes for guessing why this is on the top of my wishlist. However, all Harry Potter fangirling aside, just look at how beautiful and versatile all of these eyeshadows are. The shades have a mixture of mattes, metallics and pearlised finishes and can be applied wet or dry depending on the desired look. Although, there are only 12 shades in this palette, I can already imagine the plethora of looks I could create with these colours. Smokey, sultry eyes? Just use spellbook, salem and broomstick. Natural girl next door? Brush on some jinx, bewitched and prophecy.
Okay, I admit it, I mainly included this hand cream by Oh K! because the packaging is just so damn cute. I mean, it's a little tubby panda that smells like cherry blossoms. What's not to love? I think this hand cream will be the perfect size to pop in your handbag when you're out and about in the harsh winter weather. The formula is light-weight and quick absorbing too so I don't imagine it will leave your hands feeling sticky afterwards like most hand creams. And again - it's a cherry blossom scented panda!
Although this set is entitled winter hues I can't help but think this shades are actually made for autumn. The two middle shades in particular are just begging to be worn with a chunky warm coloured knit, beanie and classic skinny jeans (please tell me you get my autumn aesthetic!). I think these lipsticks would look very rich and give your lips a really deep colour - perfect for the colder months. Can we also just talk about how gorgeous this packaging is? I must admit I've never tried or been tempted to buy anything from Dose of Colors before but their packaging lately has been trying to persuade me otherwise.
This is a bit of a weird one - while I love my usual micellar water by Garnier I have been really tempted to try something new. So when I was watching YouTube videos a while ago I came across a few of my favourite fitness / lifestyle Youtubers using this product. Intrigued, I did a little research and found that this water is made from mostly natural ingredients. In fact the brand Yes To, only make products with at least 95% natural ingredients and most importantly are completely cruelty free. Of course, the micellar waters primary purpose is to cleanse the skin however it also moisturises and is said to leave your skin looking radiant.
So those are all of the items in my end of autumn beauty wishlist. I really hope your enjoyed wishlist shopping with me and who knows, some of these items may find their way into my shopping basket before Christmas (I'll keep you posted!). What's on your beauty list for the run up to Christmas?
