My Skincare Routine | Autumn Edit.

{Advertisement - This post was written in Collaboration with}

Here we go with another part of my autumn series. Today I want to show you which skincare products I use in the colder months. As for many, it's all about hydration, hydration, AND hydration. 

1. The Mask. 
Which mask I use totally depends on my skin condition at the time. When it is nice and clear, but lacks moisture, I love the Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet Masks. On days where my skin is not looking too great I swear by my Origins Clear Improvement Mask. Even my boyfriend absolutely loves this! I leave it on until it's completely dry and just rinse it off with some warm water.. my skin instantly feels and looks incredible. Sometimes I even use the sheet mask afterwards as the Origins one can be a bit drying. I try to do a mask every Sunday, but as life gets busy I sometimes find myself doing it every other week. How often do you use face masks?

2. The Oil.
I could skip moisturizer or a mask but I will never ever skip my oil, especially in the colder months. My current favourite is the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Oil. This stuff is such a life saver. It not only hydrates my skin like nothing else, it also calms it down and any redness just disappears overnight! AMAZING! This step I only do in the night time, as I find oils to heavy for me in the day. 

3. The Moisturizer.  
In the morning I love a light moisturizer, which acts like a good base for my makeup. For this, I use my Clinique Moisture Surge. Honestly, this product had so much hype around it, but it's totally justified. Because of the gel texture, it has also a slight cooling effect, which is great for the morning. In the evening I love something a bit more intense and also a bit more soothing. So after my Clarins oil, I use the La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra. A very gentle but efficient moisturizer, great for sensitive skin. 

4. The Eye Cream 
For my eyes, I don't use anything new. I stick to my trusty Clinique All About Eyes. It has been such a favourite of mine for years and I can't see myself change it up anytime soon. It's the perfect thickness and texture. It's not too heavy but it doesn't feel like you put nothing on. Perfect. 

5. The Lip Balm 
Just as with my eye cream, I still stick to an oldie but goodie when it comes to my lip balm. The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is the holy grail for soft and moisturized lips. You can buy the lip balm version but I just use to original cream. I feel like it does the same and the price is so much better.  

What are your fave products in the autumn time?

The Autumn Perfume Edit.

{Advertisment - This post was written in collaboration with}

I use the same perfume throughout the year, well at least more or less. I am not very strict when it comes to seasonal scents. But I do tend to gravitate towards differents perfumes each season. Today I will show you what I reach for the most in the transition from summer to autumn. 

Let's start with an all time classic: Black Opium by YSL. I think this perfume is very "love or hate". It is very strong, and very "out there". So if you like subtle flowery scents, this is not for you. I always use more strong perfumes when it gets colder. So this one is a must for in autumn. But if you want a  more fresh scent, for the warmer days in September and October I can recommend Black Opium Floral Shock. It is again very strong, but way fresher and more suitable for summer. The perfect transitional perfume. 

One of my all-time signature scents is Chloe Love. A very elegant and powdery perfume. People always ask me about it and everyone around me knows that is "my perfume". I just adore it, and I am so happy when it gets colder so I can wear it more often. 

Last but not least is Dolce & Gabbana The One. Again a quite warm scent. I just love perfumes with a vanilla and musk basenote

Now I would love to know which perfumes you love to wear in autumn/winter time!

The Autumn Makeup Edit | Golden Eyes.

{Advertisement - This post was written in collaboration with}

It is September, so it's finally acceptable to talk about autumn, right? If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with autumn and winter. For me, these months are months of change, of a new beginning, and the best makeup and fashion. I don't know why but I just don't get on with summer. Dressing for these months is a literal nightmare for me. But let's put this aside and focus on something more positive. Today I want to share with you one of my go-to looks when the air gets colder and the trees turn all red and orange. 

Let's start with the base. Normally I love my Armani Luminous Silk foundation, but when it gets colder I think a bit more coverage and a bit less glow is always a good idea. That's why I like to reach for the Armani Lasting Silk. My concealer is as always the trusty Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer. Never without it! 

Let's go to the fun part: the eyes. I love golden brown eyeshadow in autumn. For that, I choose my Mac "woodwinked" and "cork". Cork I use in the crease as I love a matte shade there. I applied woodwinked all over my lid. And of course, I can't live without my signature winged liner. My liner of choice here was the Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero liner. Amazing lasting power!

When it comes to lips I adore a dark red/purple. But I only really wear it at night time or for special occasions. Here I used the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in the shade "Prune Virgin". For a slightly more wearable version, I chose a pinky nude, the Tom Ford lipstick in "Pink Dusk". Another one of my faves.. 

What is your go-to look in autumn? Are you excited for the new season?
