Autumn Everyday Makeup-High End Edit

Hey lovelies.....There are days when I feel I want to mix my makeup up a bit. On work days I don't wear my most expensive products as it's just work, no need to look dolled up for that. On days where we have the weekend off together or were going on a day out somewhere I like to feel a bit more glam.  I love breaking out my high end products and today I've shared with you what I've been loving so far in September....x

On off duty days I love wearing a full coverage foundation. I have combination to oily skin and the creamy texture off the Becca Cosmetics Ultimate Coverage Creme is ideal for my skin type.  It retails on Cult Beauty for £34.00 and I am in the shade Nude. I actually picked mine up on QVC when they had an offer on on select Becca products. This is a water based foundation too and you only need a small amount, apply with your favourite makeup brush or blender. I always like my foundation to dry down first before I apply my concealer. I find using Becca's backlight priming filter underneath this foundation works well together. This foundation comes in so many different shades so I'm sure you will find your shade...

To set my makeup it comes as no surprise what powder I am going to talk about next. The Charlotte Tilbury airbrush flawless finish skin perfecting micro powder is such a lovely product to have in your makeup collection. Yes it's quite pricey but the quality of this product is amazing. If your a Charlotte Tilbury junkie like me you need to have this item in your stash.  The powder retails for £33.00 on cult beauty and you can also pick it up on the charlotte tilbury website too. I absolutely love how this applies on the skin it makes your under eyes look so smooth without the "cakey" look. When brushed onto the tzone area it makes your makeup look so airbrushed, with a light application it looks gorgeous guys. I also wish Charlotte would come out with a loose powder to "bake" under the eyes too and then this can be applied over top for brightening too..

For my eyeshadow I love wearing a liquid product. I feel like so many brands have their own eversion of liquid eyeshadows now. For me the best ones I have tried are the Stila liquid metal eyeshadows and in second place are the YvesSaintLaurent full metal shadows. The one I have been loving recently is in the shade AquaticCopper. It such a gorgeous bronze copper shade and can be worn as a base or even as a lid topper. They retail for £22.00 so similar to the price of the Stila ones...

For mascara I am absolutely in love with the Legendary lashes mascara form Charlotte Tilbury. The packaging of this mascara is so so lovely. It has Charlotte's eyes printed on the tube and to me it looks so luxurious. Legendary lashes retails for £25.00. Its a false lash effect mascara and makes it look like your wearing falsies. I hate wearing false lashes and I'm always on the lookout for a mascara that will lengthen, thicken and enhance my natural lashes and this does just that. I have so many small tubes of it as I receive them when placing orders on her site. It contains tamanu oil that is designed to protect and strengthen your lashes. The formula also has marine glycogen that helps your lashes grow as well, this is what I love about it as each application your lashes look fuller and thicker. Charlotte also has another mascara called full fat lashes so check that one out too..

Now the next product is a product I had on my wishlist for such a long time. I was so surprised when I got this item for my birthday in the summer. I had never tried any of Dior's products before and seen this item all over youtube and instagram. I wanted to get my hands on it but it was such a pricey product that all a girl could do was dream right. When I opened the Dior Nude Air Luminizer the item came with a small kabuki brush too. It's such a stunning product and I was so excited to use it. I got it in the shade 001 and it's a like a pinky champagne shade. When brushed onto the cheekbones it gives such a nice subtle effect without it being over the top. You can also put this in the inner corner of the eyes and on the browbone. I really want to try some more of Dior's products and I have been looking at their glosses. Have any of your guys tried their glosses??...

For lipstick I have been loving the Nars audacious lipstick in the shade Raquel. This was another item on my birthday wishlist. I absolutely love the packaging it comes in as the tube is magnetic so you don't have to worry about the lid coming off. The Nars audacious lipsticks retail for £25.00 and the formula is amazing. The lipsticks are so creamy and you only need to apply one coat. I absolutely love the pigmentation of this and really want to try other shades. I have my eye on the shades Anita and Julia too..

Do you have high end favourites?? What are your everyday staples?....thank you so much for reading
