    OUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN LIP COLOURS

    As we move into the colder months we love to switch up our homes, our wardrobes, and of course, our makeup. As the mornings grow colder and darker, the time we want to spend in bed increases tenfold, and that means sacrificing our all too precious getting ready time. A woman knows however, that a little mascara, a touch of blush and bronzer and a great lip is all she needs for a day at the office. As it is the most crucial part of our Autumn makeup routine, we thought we would take you through our favourites lip colours for the season.

    Whilst a lot of us are not brave enough to wear the ultra dark vampy look on an everyday basis, it does mean that you can keep the rest of your face minimal. Also you would be surprised at how much more confident you feel in it after you've tried it a few times. Our favourites are MAC Retro Matte 'High Drama' and 'Zoeva Pure Lacquer 'Sensual Curve'.

    Now although we love a good seasonal dark lip, we can't forget about our nudes. We do however keep to the more brown undertones in the Autumn as opposed to pink nudes. The colour Emily Ratajkowski is wearing is pure perfection, however, annoyingly, we don't know what that exact colour is. Our favourites Bobbi Brown Luxe Liquid Lip 'Barely Nude' and L'Oreal Colour Riche Shine 'Dazzling Doe' are very similar though.

    For a night out we love a glossy berry lip! It is super flattering on all skin tones and looks beautiful with dark hair like Megan Fox's. The particular one she is quite unique however it is the perfect colour to try and recreate for the upcoming holiday season. We achieve it with Colourpop's Ultra Matte 'Rooch', topped with their 'Wolfie' Ultra Gloss.

    When you want a bit of colour but don't want to have to worry about the maintenance and top ups throughout the day, then a lip stain is the way to go. The Chanel Le Rouge Duo in 'Tender Beige' is absolutely perfect for day to day, we also love all the colours in the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain collection for even less fuss.

    If you're a fan of a vibrant lip, then a beautiful orange red is always a winner in the Autumn months. Shay mitchell looks stunning in this colour and shows that is perfect paired with simple black dress. Experiment with MAC's 'Morange' Amplified Lipstick or if you don't think you will wear it that often, Maybelline's Colour Sensation 'Orange Danger'.

    Last but not least is our easy go to, a glossy nude lip. This one however is totally different...(honest!) as it has much more peach undertones. Essentially it's like adding a little pumpkin spice to your classic nude. Our favourites are Nyx Butter Gloss 'Madeline' and Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in 'Amber'.

    And there you have it, all the lip colours you need for the colder months. Honestly even if we are just lounging around the home in our pjs and slippers, putting a good lip colour on, always makes us feel more put together and ready for the day. Of course, we are always open to adding to our forever-growing lip collection, so let us know your must-haves in the comments below!

    There is nothing more gorgeous during the summer than a bright red/orange lip, fact. Well maybe the sunshine... and ice cream. But in terms of makeup, a bold lip looks super pretty during the daytime with some fresh bronzed skin. It also looks ah-mazing on a night out with some classic bronzey eyes. If you're feeling adventurous try putting a little orange in your waterline, for a super cool unique look.

    Now we know this looks a bit crazy... but hear us out. We are picturing this on holiday with a beautiful white floaty dress, a fresh sunkissed tan, gorgeous glowing highlight, cocktails by the beach... we think you get it. Or simply a night on the town with your extra sassy girl friends. If it is too much to do both lips and eyes for you, then go for either or, whichever is your favourite feature. But definitely keep the glowy highlight!

    Would we even be discussing summer makeup if we weren't talking about the bronzed goddess look?! A golden smokey eye, a lot of bronzer, some beautiful highlight and a simple pretty gloss and you're all set. Most definitely the go-to makeup look during the summer, whether you're a guest at your friend's wedding or going on a cute day date with your bf.
