My Autumn/Winter Essentials|Ailish Elizabeth
Today, I though I would share with you some of my Autumn/ Winter essentials, I did one of these last year, so I though I would do another one this year, I also love reading or watching peoples seasonal essentials. Here are my essentials for Autumn and Winter:
Last year I was all for wearing dark lips, and wore dark lipstick and lip gloss an awful lot, however this year it has changed, and I am not a huge fan of dark lips on me. I am not too sure why, if it is my braces, though I had them last year or that I have just went off it. However, as some of you may know, I am not a huge fan of light pinks or dark pinks on my lips, it just doesn't look nice on me, so I wear nude-ish shades all year around, but this season I like wearing a nude lipstick, that is slightly a bit darker than my lips, and that is the Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick, in 08. I love this and it is one of my favourite nude shades I have.
Another one of my Autumn/ Winter essentials is nail varnishes, specifically natural or nude shades, ones that aren't too noticeable. One that I have been loving wearing is the Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Mocha, though, because it is matte I do put on a top coat, that is a gel one. The reason I do this, is though I do love matte nails, I find them a little boring and they sometimes just don't look that nice, but that all depends on the shade.
I get really dry lips, all year around, so I will normally always have lip balm in my pocket, but in the Autumn and Winter I have to have a lip balm in my pocket, as I get really bad chapped lips. I wear Vaseline all the time, but it on before I go to sleep and when I wake up, during school and whenever my lips are super dry. I also like the way it adds a little bit of gloss to my lips and I don't have to put any lip gloss on as well. Another lip balm I love is the Lypsyl Cherry Blossom lip balm, I used this all the time in year seven and I never bought it again once I finished, but the other day my Mum and Dad bought it for me and I fell back in love with it. It leaves your lips soft, and it also smells really nice, though it tastes awful!
Baths/ Bath Bombs
I love baths, especially around this time of the year, during the cold weather I love to have a super hot bath. In those baths, you have to have bath bombs or a bubble bar, another reason why I love baths around this time of the year is because of Christmas stuff in Lush and how nice they are and festive. This year I have found my new favourite Lush product and it is from the Christmas line it is, The Magic Of Christmas Bubble Bar, this smells amazing, it has a warm spicy scent, as it does have cinnamon in, I do love cinnamon, so I think one of the reasons I love it!
I love reading all year around, but in the Autumn and Winter, I love just sitting and focusing on a book and nothing else. At the moment I have no time to read because of school, as I have had a lot more work to do and more assessments and to remember. But I think I am going to start trying to read for an hour or two per week as I do love reading, and I am missing reading. If you have any good books to read, that aren't too girly, please comment them!
I have already shared with you my Autumn playlist, if you haven't read it, I will leave a link to that and the Spotify playlist. But, I like to listen to more acoustic songs.
I hope you liked today's post, comment some of your Autumn and Winter essentials.
