Autumn (OOTD: Basic)

Autumn is by far my favourite time of year. I love the colours of autumn and I think autumn fashion is also my favourite; thick jumpers and scarfs. 

Me and one of my friends decided to make the most of autumn and the lovely weather, so we went for a walk. My outfit consisted of a black denim skirt from missguided (£18), a black turtle neck from primark. I also got my scarf from primark and it was also only £4. Then finally my boots are from Zara (£29.99), I especially like these, as I have been looking for some everyday ankle boots for ages. I thought these were perfect as they are a little bit different as they have cut outs and a buckle so there is more to them than other just ankle boots; they are definitely going to be worn a lot this season. 

 As much as I miss summer, I am loving the cold nights, leaves falling off the trees and wearing scarfs and coats.
What is your favourite season? 

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed!

P.s. I know it has been a while since I posted on this blog or on my instagram (@bxckymxrris), mainly due to personal reasons but also because back in September I started at university to study Digital Marketing which has been pretty full on, so it has taken me a while to organise my time so I have time for everything. So thanking for sticking around to still read my blog! I promise to post more frequently and be more active on my instagram.

High-end Beauty Haul

Today I thought I'd share with you some of the makeup products I have been purchasing recently. So recently I went on holiday to Spain and I bought back some euros so I thought I would treat myself towards some new makeup bits.

Whilst on holiday, my friend took her NAKED 3 palette with her and I used it a couple of times and I fell in love, it is such a pretty palette. When this palette first came out I was not interested as I normally go for more brown toned neutrals but since I used this, my opinion changed completely and I have used this every day since I got it. This palette is pretty pricey, but the quality is amazing and I also ordered it from Feel Unique meaning I got student discount, which is always a bonus.

In duty-free on the way home, there was a MAC stand and I noticed they had the prolong wear concealer so I thought I would pick it up as I have been looking at this concealer for a while. I picked up the shade NC15. From my experience of this concealer so far it is amazing and has such good coverage. As I loved the concealer so much I thought I would order the foundation as I have been looking for a full coverage foundation that I can use when I need more coverage. I ordered this online from MAC and received one of the sample Prep + Prime primer which I also love dearly.

Whilst browsing Feel Unique I came across the brand nude by nature, which is an Australian mineral makeup brand and a lot of it was on sale so I thought I would try some of their products. The first thing I got was the Luminous sheer liquid foundation, I have yet to try this product but the packaging from this brand is lovely. 

The second thing I bought was the contouring palette you get a contour shade, a bronzing shade, and a highlight. All three are matte and highly pigmented. So far I have been loving this product it is the perfect palette for contouring and highlighting and so far would highly recommend this product. The rose gold packaging for this product is beautiful.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed! Also, I apologise for not posting in a while, but I hope to be back on track to posting regularly.

Current makeup favourites

Recently I have been trying out a lot of new makeup and reaching for things in my makeup collection that I don't normally go for, so I thought that I would share with youa few of the new things that I have been loving.

Barry M illuminating strobe cream in the shade '2 Iced Bronze' - £4.49
I have fallen in love with this product, as like everyone I have been obsessed with highlight recently and I love to use this as a base and they apply a powder highlight over the top. However, this does also look lovely by itself, which I tend to do more on days where I don't wear much makeup. It is very creamy meaning it blends well and leaves a lovely glow.

Stila 'Eyes are the window to the soul' palette  - £30
This has been the eyeshadow palette I have been reaching for ever since I got it. The quality of the eyeshadows are great and they are pigmented and blendable, everything you could want in an eyeshadow. The palette has a wide range of shades meaning you can create a lovely everyday look or create a more dramatic look for going out with. I would definitely recommend this palette to anyone who's looking for some new eyeshadows.

I have really been getting into contour recently and my friend recommended cream contour so I thought I would give it a shot and it think it is great. I use it as a base under powder bronzer, but I think it helps keep my powder bronzer on and just adds more definition to my face.

Urban Decay Primer Potion - £16
I have mentioned featured this so much on my Instagram and also on my blog and it's because I absolutely love it, it helps my eye makeup last all day without any creasing. At the end of the day when I take off my makeup, it looks exactly the same as when I applied it. It is classed as a high-end product and is quite pricey at £16 but it is definitely worth it.

 So they are all the beauty things that I have been loving recently. I hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading!
