For this months beauty bag I’m pulling on all of my current favourites that fit the bill for tackling the post-holiday blues that many of us might be feeling this month…
CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Multi-effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Poésie – Four shades, all laced with a mauve-y pink undertone that I struggle to pick a favourite from. This is a fantastic september pick, chocolatey sheer goodness that can be paired down or amped up depending on your desired look. A fantastic transition into Autumnal makeup!
NARS Sheer Lipstick in Barbarella – A sheer pretty peach that pairs beautifully with a subtle smokey eye. In fact, its actually pretty perfect with any makeup look. Sheer, wearable and subtle – three things I love in a lipstick. Best of all, NARS lipsticks have excellent wear time.
CHANEL Vitalumiére Aqua in B30 – I. Am. In. Love. This will be the only thing to grace my face this month as I’m just so in love with it! A new-generation texture. A unique makeup result. Rapid and easy application. Apply your makeup without thinking about it. It’s literally that simple. For september I’m looking for something lightweight but moisturising and this hits the spot. Its soft and evanescent ultra-fine fluid texture is a real surprise: although exceptionally delicate and light, it offers an incomparable “second-skin” perfecting result. The complexion appears amazingly even, fresh and energised. The skin glows with seemingly nude beauty. As if lit from within. Bathed in light… and perfect for when the days start to get gloomy!
EVE LOM Light Illusion Concealer – Another september must have is a radiance boosting concealer. Blurs imperfections whilst brightening the complexion. Dewy skin in a handy pen.
BITE BEAUTY Luminous Créme Lipstick Duo in Neutral – Lychee (light neutral pink) / Musk (pink brown) – This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to create your own custom look. Both beautiful nude shades that are perfect for September, complimenting your lasting summer tan and tying together your whole look.
BITE BEAUTY Agave Lip Mask – Seriously need after a holiday. When I come back my lips are always SO dry and cracked. This innovative, natural formula smooths, nourishes, and moisturises lips with a bio-active blend of organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla CO2 extract, and triple the amount of antioxidant trans-resveratrol found in red wine. Even better.
JO MALONE Wood Sage & Sea Salt Perfume – A gorgeous new scent offering from Jo Malone, perfect for September post holiday blues. Sea air is mixed with salty and mineral texture of sand and stones. As the scent of driftwood it has natural and fresh sophistication. A complex combination of wood and sea is in its essence. It provides the feeling of freedom and natural spirit. I am in love.
What are you going to be calling upon this month? Will any of my picks make the cut?
