#Autumn warmers – take two

Brrrrr! is what comes to mind when I look back at this week.  This week has been a typical autumn New Zealand smorgasbord  of weather.  Hot and sunny one day, cool crisp mornings the next and three days of rain and grey.  It was also a week of sniffles, sneezes and coughs for me, so needless to say I was in need of a good waterproof mascara and some colours to warm up my complexion.


From far left:  Lime Crime – Centrifuchsia, Bourjois – Bronzing Primer, NARS – Sin, Bourjois Health Mix Serum Fondation – 52, Revlon Balm Stain – Smitten, Lioele Skin Pact – 21Light Beige, MAC – Pink freeze, MAC – Syrup, Revlon Lip Butter – Raspberry Pie 

This week I went with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in 52, for a fresh dewy look and I also favoured the Lioele Skin Pact SPF 25+++, to set my foundation and give me a little extra sun protection. I also used the Bourjois Bronzer Primer to warm up my overall complexion.  As you can see in the picture I was really drawn to the warmer purples and fuschias to help me look more lively and awake.


I also loved a more glossy look for the lips and used quite a selection lip products, all of which pulled on the warmer side and were of a pinky, fuschia tone, matching my blush and eye shadow choices.



Using my MAC quad in ‘Pink Freeze” I was able to create a soft, feminine eye look that played with my green eyes, while the Revlon Lip Butter in “Raspberry Pie” gave my lips a healthy flush, prefect for those days when you need a little colour back in your life.

How has your week been? I was so ready for the weekend. What have been your picks/colours for the week?
