Hello lovely people of the blogosphere! It’s time for a list of my November favourites.
I love love love Autumn; I love the leaves, the chilly cold, jumpers, blankets, Hallowe’en, Bonfire Night. Everything. I love it!
So without further ado here is my list:
Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette
I have another palette by Urban Decay but this is my absolute favourite. The deep, warm shades are perfect for Autumn, and the shadows blend like a dream. Whereas my other UD palette came with a brush that was fairly useless, this one comes with a brush that isn’t great for precise work, but blends and applies generally well. The palette is pricey but it lasts a long time and is fab for creating a myriad of warm-toned looks on any skin tone.
Nyx Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette
I have just discovered Nyx (about a year and a half after everyone else) and it’s very high quality makeup for high street prices. I have attempted to learn a contour and highlight routine that I can do in five minutes everyday and failed miserably. This palette is very handy for early mornings; everything is in one place and doesn’t require much effort to apply. It blends easily into the skin and lasts all day. It also works for darker skin tones. I’ve linked Destiny Godley’s review of the kit below, because she is amazing (also we use the same contour brush *fangirls*).
Barry M Molten Metal Nail Paint in Bronze Bae
This is a warm and shimmery nail polish. It’s a lovely colour and everyone needs more sparkles in their life! It’s a great Autumn colour and lovely for occasions like Hallowe’en and Bonfire night. If you’re aching for sparkly Christmas nail polish then this will tide you over until December.
Mac Cosmetics Whirl Matte Lipstick
Now this has been my go-to everyday lipstick for a while. It’s a dark nude isn’t so dark that you can’t wear it to work. I’ve been meaning to include this in a favourites post for a while and it’s certainly an appropriate colour for Fall (as I’m writing this I’m getting really excited to write my December/Christmas lipstick review). The fab thing about this lipstick is that it’ll work all year round and lasts a long time.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
This film is the perfect transition film from Hallowe’en to Christmas. It’s weird and wacky, the music is fantastic and overall it’s just a really fun film. But just a quick psa: this is probably more of a kids film for adults. Maybe don’t watch this with kids, unless they’re super tough. We don’t want to scar any sprogs too much. Some would call it character building but kids having nightmares is stressful for everyone.
And that’s it from me, have a lovely Sunday and a lovely November.
On this Remembrance Sunday let’s think of those who made sacrifices that we might live freely. Lest we forget.
