Autumn is here! Five Reasons to get Excited

10 Oct

1) Pale and interesting beauty

pale-skin-red-lips-autumn-winter-beauty-make-upAutumn is the time to throw away your fake tan mitt and give up the constant struggle to achieve ‘bronzed goddess’ over  ‘streaky mess’. Leave behind the golden glow and nude make up, and instead turn to striking porcelain skin and more dramatic looks on the lips and eyes, including that ultimate winter favourite, red lipstick (top row – Gucci, Kristen Bell). I also love the English Rose looks from Michael Kors and Alice Temperley (bottom row), which focus on a beautiful flushed cheek. You can achieve this with a lovely pink blusher or just a crisp wintery walk!

2) Boots and coats!

You know what’s annoying? Those days between June and September when it’s actually not warm enough to flit about in a light blazer and skirt, but you feel like a bit of a weirdo shoving on your winter coat and black tights. Now, however, we can bung on scarves, boots, lovely fitted coats – all without subverting any seasonal norms. And we all know how elegant and flattering the perfect winter outerwear can be. Where’s my bobble hat?

3) Halloween

Halloween is a great excuse to embrace your inner child. Whether you’re throwing a party, or staying in to watch spooky films, make sure you involve the following:

– A pumpkin

– Chocolates in the shape of pumpkins

– Bobbing apples

– At least one piece of novelty jewellery

4) Autumn Nails

Autumn-nail-artI’ve written about Summer nail art, but – pah! – that’s old news now. Instead, it is time to embrace autumnal colours, icicles and the odd cheeky umbrella. If I can recreate the flames above in time for Bonfire Night, I’ll give myself a medal (a medal in the form of a hot dog, obvs).

5) Mulled Wine

Cold weather means you are automatically allowed to drink Mulled Wine AT ALL TIMES. Like for breakfast, as a nightcap, perhaps even in your ‘water’ bottle when you scoot off to the gym.
