I absolutely adore everything to do with fall, it’s quite possibly my favourite season, so to be doing today’s theme at this time of year feels like perfection to me. I really wanted to do something a little different today and include nature itself in my completed beauty look. So I took to the great outdoors and you can find the results and the list of products and items I used below.
Max Factor Face Finity 3 in 1 Foundation – Beige 55
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Fair 1
George Silk Finish Pressed Powder – No. 01 Translucent
Bourjois Bronze and Highlight Duo – 55 (Only used the bronze for contour)
Make-Up Revolution London Mono Eyeshadow – Delicious
Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Grey Palette – Parchment (for the brow bone)
Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio – 14 Vert Jungle (Used all three shades)
Bourjois Liner Feutre – 14 Noir Moka
Model’s Own Hyper Eyes Mascara – Black
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick – 416 Coral Fever
Completed with a random selection of leaves!
How to appreciate the beauty of fall you ask? Well, below are some of my personal favourite reasons to do just that…
Fall fashion and getting snug in cosy clothing
Warm drinks such as different teas or hot chocolate (obviously with marshmallows)
Reading a good book curled up in front of a fire (if you don’t have one you can pretend)
Fairy lights, for some reason Autumn and Winter are the BEST time to hang pretty lights
Fluffy throws, such as the one in my recent monthly favourites post
Seasonal celebrations such as Halloween and the run up to Christmas
Being warm indoors when there’s storms or it’s snowing outside
Autumnal colours such as orange, green and berry shades
The changes to nature, leaves changing colour, crunching fallen leaves beneath my feet, I love walks at this time of year
Sales! I wouldn’t be a true beauty and fashion blogger if I didn’t get excited by the abundance of bargains going down at this time of year!
Films, this is the time of year that were tailor made for watching movies!
Eating anything and everything, Christmas party snacks are especially the best!
Perfect to mention right now, the Christmas countdown and advent calendars, these get me way too excited, especially since I have three this year! Yes, I’m spoilt ha ha!
Spending time with loved ones, for some reason it seems that we spend more time with others at this time of year, probably because of the continual holidays and celebrations.
The year coming to a close, thus reflecting on everything that’s happened and preparing for a fresh start in the coming year.
Please do check out the other’s take on this weeks theme, you can find the link up over on Beth’s blog. Leave me a comment below, I’d love to know what your favourite things are about this time of year and what it is you appreciate the most within nature around us. Who used to collect conkers during their childhood then have conker battles with them? Oh those were the days, back when we were all young enough to go trick or treating and to still believe in Santa.
