One year vegan.

It’s a cold autumn night and we are bundled up on the sofa. Pop corns flowing, and we decide to put on a new film called cloud atlas. “It was filmed in Glasgow” “Tom Hanks is in it, so it must be good” people said.

Matte colours are usually more pigmented and bold. Listed below are my top 4 I’ve been reaching for. 100% pure Semi matte lipstick in Blood orange- This is by far my favourite off the four.

Go to Autumn Make-up

Its darker in the mornings and I’m rummaging around my wardrobe for scarfs. I really fancy anything pumpkin flavoured and burgundy is my new favourite colour. It’s officially Autumn. Although I hate the temperature drop, I love Autumn trends and make-up. I am done with no make-up, make-up looks, gold eyeshadow and glossy lips and I am ready for full coverage foundations a bold statement lip and lashes. Hourglass Vanish stick foundation is my go to foundation for more coverage. It leaves the skin completely flawless but doesn’t look or feel heavy and has a nice natural skin like...
