Face of the day: Berry lips

When the Autumn/Winter season begins, I like to switch up my makeup by wearing a dark vampy lipstick instead of my usual pink. This is a wearable look for daytime but it also looks nice for going out to dinner or a bar. 
This look is simple to achieve and it starts with glowing skin. First I concealed any blemishes and under-eye shadows with Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in 'true ivory'. Next, I mixed a small amount of 17 Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter with Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation  in 'true ivory' (which has SPF 15 to protect your skin). 
After applying two coats of Maybelline The Colossal Volume Cat Eyes mascara in black to define my eyes, I swept 17 Instant Glow Bronzing Powder in 'light bronze' across my cheeks. After lining my lips with 17 Rose Blush Lip Liner (a nice neutral shade) I filled them in with Collection Lipstick in shade 1 'seduction'. This is a perfect deep red wine/berry colour for this time of year and the overall finished look is chic yet simple.

Pink Crombie Coat

This pale pink 'crombie' coat is so warm for winter, yet stylish at the same time. I really like its simple shape which means it is easy to wear with a more eye catching bag or scarf. 
I have wanted a pale pink coat for a while, and this Primark one is a good way to invest in the trend without spending a fortune!

Outfit of the day: Fringe Benefits

Leather look leggings are one of my favourite things to wear in autumn/winter. They are easy to build an outfit around and fairly comfortable if you find the right pair. I love this statement necklace which I bought in Primark, it really dresses up a plain t-shirt. Of course, my fringed kimono has to come out of hiding, even in autumn! I just think it is so chic and bohemian. The dusky pink shade is very on-trend at the moment too, which is a bonus!
