Daily natural makeup products

I recently realized that I haven't done a daily makeup post in ages. So I thought it's time to update you on what I am using on my face on a daily basis for a natural and glowy makeup look. Just so you can get a picture of what I am working with: I have quite pale, dry and blemish-free skin. My main goal is to look fresh and a bit bronzed but generally, I don't have much to cover up. 

Daily natural makeup products

By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum

On most days I prefer not to wear any actual foundation and instead, I reach for the By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum in "sunny flash". It gives my skin a bit of a bronzed glow and covers some minor imperfections. 

Estee Lauder Double Wear Radiant Concealer

I am someone who often struggles to sleep, so concealer is a must for me in the morning. I recently discovered the Estee Lauder Double Wear Radiant Concealer and I love it so far. It doesn't crease on me and it feels very lightweight while covering my dark circles. I feel like this might become a longterm fave. 

Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder 

Because the CC Serum is seriously glowing, I like to set it with a bit of powder. I am normally not the biggest fan of powders, as they tend to look too matte for my liking. When I discovered the Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder I fell in love immediately. It's very lightweight and gives a subtle glow while also setting my makeup and concealer. I can't imagine doing my makeup without it anymore. 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer

The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer has been a cult product for many years. This bronzer blends in perfectly and for me, it's the perfect shade, not too red and not too cool-toned. My last pan has lasted me for years so it really is worth spending a bit more money on. 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Highlighter

I have recently added the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Highlighter in the shade "heatwave" to my collection. I believe it's a limited edition so hurry if you want to get it. It's a beautiful champaign colour with a lot of glow to it. I try to only apply a little bit for the day and top it up for the nights. A very intense but gorgeous highlighter. 

Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil

Oh, I absolutely adore the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil. I think I even prefer it to the ABH one... I know, shocking! It is so easy to use and always looks natural. Love a fuss-free brow product!

Bobbi Brown Ink Liner

This is my holy grail liner. The Bobbi Brown Ink Liner has a beautiful deep black colour and lasts ages on me. The tip is bendable, which is very important to me. It's not waterproof but I have to say I had a few crying sessions (hello Queer Eye) with it on and it didn't really budge too much. 

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color

My go-to lip colour for a natural look is the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in "pale mauve". It's a beautiful cool-toned pinky nude with a subtle sheen. Very comfortable to wear.

It's time to think about our autumn wardrobe and I couldn't be more excited. When the air gets colder I really thrive off autumn/winter fashion. I mean what is more exciting than cracking out your cashmere pieces, boots and coats. And of course, maybe add a few new pieces to your collection. So today I thought I would share with you some staple coats that anyone should have in their closet.

5 Beauty Products Instagram Made Me Buy.

Beauty Products Instagram Made Me Buy

Beauty Products Instagram Made Me Buy

Instagram would be the main platform that constantly makes me buy things. That can be anything from
home decorations, coats, bags or beauty products. However, as much as I love to get inspired by all the beautifully curated pictures and recommendations on the platform, I am sometimes I bit hesitant to whether or not it is just another hyped and well-advertised product or if I really need it in my collection. So today I thought I would go through 5 beauty products that Instagram made me buy. 

Tom Ford Lipstick

Tom Ford Lipsticks

Tom Ford lipsticks are a staple in a lot of beautiful beauty and lifestyle flatlays on the Gram. I mean, their packaging looks absolutely gorgeous with their unique square shape and golden details. But are they even worth their hefty price tag? I would say yes! They are very creamy and comfortable to wear. What I love about them the most is the extensive colour range. I am someone who almost exclusively wear nude lipsticks and wow.. their range in just nude tones is amazing. You really can find the right shade for you. My fave has to be the shade "Paper Doll". 

Yves Saint Laurent Libre

YSL Libre

The YSL Marketing Team really did a great job with that one. Around the launch date of the Yves Saint Laurent Libre perfume, I just saw this gorgeous bottle everywhere. Honestly, I think have never come across a perfume bottle that looks more aesthetically pleasing than this one. So, of course, I had to cave and splurge on it and luckily it's not only beautiful to look at but it also smells amazing! 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Highlighter

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Highlighter

I remember seeing the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Highlighter in Heatwave a few years ago. I must have waited too long to get it because it sold out pretty quickly. So when I recently saw they came back with it I knew I needed to take the plunge. And wow, this highlighter not only looks gorgeous in pictures, but it is also a masterpiece in real life. But be warned: if you prefer a natural barely-there highlighter, you should pass on this one. It is intense but beautiful!

Yves Saint Laurent The Slim Lipstick Blurr Perfecting Primer

YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Slim

I am a sucker for lipsticks and feel like I am always looking for the next pinky nude to add to my collection. So when I came across the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Slim I knew this is the matte lipstick I needed in my collection. I got the shade "Rare Rose" and am already eyeing up "Inflammatory Nude" which seems to be a more neutral nude. It really is pretty matte, so I like to apply a lip balm first to prevent my lips from drying out. But the staying power really is something else!

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector

Okay, I have to admit I only bought the Yves Saint Laurent Eclat Blur Perfector because of its pretty pink and gold packaging. I mean, isn't she a beauty? It actually is not a powder, it has more of a balm texture which mattifies and blurs your skin. I actually really like to use it throughout the day when my skin gets a bit too oily. It works perfectly over makeup without making my skin look chalky like powders tend to do. So this is a real win. Bought it for the looks and keeping it for the product.

The Prints You Need In Your Home.

*This Post contains PR Gifts

As most of you should know at this point (because I literally can't shut up about it) I have recently moved to Munich. And with a new city comes a new apartment. To me, it was important to start this chapter new and fresh and really think about how I want our new space to feel. We both like quite minimal styles with a few decorative centrepieces. I love adding prints and art to my walls to make a space feel more personal. My boyfriend was so nice to give me full control of this part of the decorations. So today I will share with you where I bought all of our prints and frames. 

Many of you would have already heard about Desenio. Their beautiful prints are literally all over Instagram and I always get excited when I spot one in the background of other bloggers pictures. Their selection is honestly so huge, that there is something for everyone. I used to spend hours and hours scrolling through their selection to find the right ones for our home. I went for quite neutral colours with a natural feel to them. Most of my frames have a black frame and some are a light wooden colour. Did you know Desenio is also selling frames in all kinds of different finishes that fit their prints perfectly? The easiest all-in-one shop experience. 

I hung my fave prints right next to my makeup table. For anyone wondering, they are called "Surfers on the beach", "Stairs of art No.1" and "Eucalyptus Twigs No.2". 

If you want some home inspo you should really check out their Instagram. I could scroll through their gallery walls for ages. And if you want to get some of their pieces, you get a 25% discount with my code "LISAAUTUMN". The code is valid until the 10th of September and can't be used for frames, handpicked or personalised prints.

Do you already have some Desenio prints in your home?
