My name is Shaz from A Pinch of Shaz and I've been lucky enough to do a guest post on Nuala's lovely blog. I'm fairly new to the blogging world, I've only been blogging for around 2 months and this is my first guest post I've ever done! I was very excited to do this sooo I started brain storming on what to do and thought I would share with you my favourite makeup products for Autumn. I love reading these kind of posts as I'm forever looking for new products to try and they give me so much inspiration for the new season (which is long enough).
MAC prep & prime 'light boost'
I have a big obsession with highlighting and contouring this season and this product is a little gem of mine! It's a pen style highlighter and really easy to use, literally just swipe it over the place you want to highlight and then blend. It gives more of a natural radiant look to highlighting as its not shimmery like others and its long lasting.
Urban Decay Naked 2 PaletteRecently I was given this a birthday present and was so excited as it was out of stock when I wanted to buy this. You get a mixture of matte and shimmer eyeshadows that are all highly pigmented and the shimmer is very long lasting. The first four shades of this palette are warm, the next are neutral and the last are cooler shades - which are all fab colours for Autumn. Smokey eyes are on trend this season and there so many gorgeous looks that can be created using this palette so I highly recommend buying this - I'm in love!
MAC Rebel lipstick
Now for those of you who don't know my biggest weakness are lipsticks! Bright, bold statement lipsticks are my favourite so you can imagine my excitement for Autumn to arrive as deep berry lips are a big thing. I purchased MAC Rebel a while back using the 'back to MAC' scheme; this is where you return 6 MAC empties in return for a free lipstick of your choice - how great is that?! MAC Rebel is by far my favourite lipstick this season, its a gorgeous deep berry shade with a satin finish. Its durability is like a matte finish - can last me most of the day (trust me I eat and drink a lot) and it barely shifts and it doesn't dry my lips out.Maybelline Gel Pot Eyeliner
Another eye look that is big this season is the cat eye look. In the past I have used MAC gel eyeliner pot however one day I purchased Maybelline gel pot eyeliner and never went back to MAC. This product is a cheaper alternative costing only £7.99 and is so easy to use. It gives you a bold defined flick that doesn't fade in colour - there is nothing more I can't stand than a faded black when I'm creating this look. I use this in my waterline it's very long lasting on that as well. I highly recommend using this gel pot eyeliner over pencil/liquid eyeliners, especially if you want to have a defined cat look.
