A Rosy Glow

ysl mac benefit red lips
Hello! All my posts recently have been Autumn/Winter themed and this one will be no different. I'm obsessed with A/W at the moment and not only for the hats and scarves, for the change in make up looks too. My favourite make up look is black winged liner with bold lips and subtle rosy cheeks. The goal is to look like I've just stepped inside from the cold, in a good way! Here are some of the products I'll be using in the next few months.

YSL Glossy Stain 19 - I read so many people raving about this product last year but never got round to buying it. It's similar to Rimmel Apocalips in that it's a lip gloss wand but with strong opaque colour. This red is such a gorgeous tone and the packaging is so luxurious. It will be mine! (Find this product here*)

Mac Blush in Frankly Scarlet - This looks so bright (and a bit scary) in the pan, but I saw this in so many tutorials last year and it just looks the perfect colour to match red lips. It the prettiest rosy glow on the cheeks. I need to break my habit of pink/coral blushes and this blush will be the one to do it! (available here)

Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple - I bought this when I was in Florida last September and I've only just rediscovered it. It's so moisturising and it's the perfect product when you want a bit of colour but don't want to go all out with a lipstick. ( Get it here, usually on 3 for 2!)

Soap & Glory Cheekmate - This is another one I bought at the end of Winter last year. This is a cheek/lip stain but I prefer it just on the cheeks. It's another rosy cheek product that looks really natural and stays on all day. This is more of a pink/plum toned so would go perfectly with dark lips. (Find it here)

Benefit Benetint - Since trying the cheek stain from Soap&Glory (above), I've wanted to try this stain by Benefit. I love their Cha Cha tint for summer and Benetint is a bright red colour that I think would be lovely on the lips and cheeks. I'd wear this with natural make up during the day. (Find it here)

Mac lip liner in 'Brick' - I threw this one in at the last minute as it's a must have for wearing underneath any red lips. Line your lips with this and it'll keep your lip colour in place a lot longer. It's also nice to use on it's own all over the lips with a bit of clear balm for moisture. This is a nice way to make a red lip more casual and daytime appropriate! (Get it here)


What's your favourite A/W cheek/lip products?

  2. I swear by Benetint, it's definitely one of my favourite products ever and Brick is the best red lip liner I've tried.
