Autumnal colours from Topshop

Hey guys, 

The weather has cooled down, and it's time to get out the cable knit jumpers. Before I do that, I always think about my winter makeup staples. This year it is burgundy. I've gone totally mad for the colour, both for fashion and beauty.

I thought I'd share with you some makeup must haves, if you are as obsessed with burgundy tones as I am.

I firstly came across, what Topshop are calling cheek jelly, which I think is super cool, it feels very much like a cream blush, which I love for a more dewy natural finish. When I say a little goes along way with this colour, I really do mean it. Its such a pigmented shade, which I picked up the colour 'Sibling'.

Then I found the lipliner in 'Deception' and lipstick in 'Wicked' they literally go perfectly together. I find with a rich dark lip shade, a lipliner helps create perfect definition. The lipstick is great because its highly moisturising, so lasts so much longer than a lot of the darker shades i've ever tried. The colours are a beautiful deep burgundy shade which I totally love, I didn't want anything else that was too heavy on the rest of my face, so I teamed my lip with a subtle eyeliner.

If you want to see how I created this makeup look you can head over to my youtube channel and watch the video here.
