October Beauty Favourites

October beauty favourites
Hi Lovelies
 With it now nearly November, Autumn is now in full swing with the trees loosing their leaves and the weather getting colder so we all need our heaters on. Its hard to believe that is only 2 months until Christmas and 2016! this year has just been so quick.
My October beauty favourites are very much inspired by Autumn as you can tell by my choices chosen in the above picture and I would say I chose them as they are perfect matching the autumn and winter months and not only that they are perfect for Halloween too.
October beauty favourites
Illamasqua  Powder Blusher - Tease (RRP £22.00)
I love a bright blusher as its a bit daring and for me they look so much better in the colder months as it goes very well with winter shade lipsticks and eye shadows. This blusher is a bright magenta shade in a matte finish. This goes very well on its own or with a highlight, my favourite highlighter is the baked highlighters from Makeup revolution.
Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation - 140 (RRP £31.00)
This is the first ever premium foundation that I have tried and its still my ultimate favourite as it has full coverage and it matches my skin tone perfectly which is light-medium skin with golden undertones. I know this foundation sounds a bit on the expensive side but this is very long lasting and I have had mine for just over a year now and I still have some left.
October beauty favourites
Barry M Nail Paint - Black Cherry (RRP £3.99)
I just love all the gelly nail paints from Barry M but Black Cherry has to be my favourite at the moment as its such a gorgeous shade of a dark red so its perfect for Halloween and the autumn winter months alike. This nail paint needs 2 applications to look super beautiful and is long lasting and lasted 3 days before chipping.
Makeup Revolution Velvet Lip Lacquer - Black Heart (RRP £3.00)
I have been wanting to try Jeffree Star lipsticks for a while now but they are a little bit on the expensive side so I am saving up for them so I decided to get the next best thing for now and its the velvet lip lacquers from makeup revolution. My favourite at the moment is Black Heart as its quite daring and looks perfect as you guessed it for Halloween.
Real Techniques Contour brush - Part of core collection with 4 brushes (RRP £20.99)
I just love my real techniques contour brush and  I use it to apply my blushes and also my bronzers and my highlighters too. I have tried many brushes but for me this brush applies the right amount of product to complete the makeup looks I am after. Its just a shame they don't sell these seperatly as I would love to have one of these as a spare brush.
What are your favourite October beauty favourites?

    I have that Barry M nail polish, it's amazing isn't it! The only problems I sometimes have is they can be too thin and you get the lines, I hate that!
    Love, Amie ❤
