Autumn is hands-down my favorite season and I love to change up my beauty essentials alongside the colder weather. The cooler temperatures have me loving heavier scents & facial oils, while I always lean toward buildable coverage when it comes to foundations and a definite lip colour at this time of year.

Brows | Groomed full brows are pretty much a staple for me, and I’ve yet to find a quicker route to brow perfection than Benefits Gimme Brow, €24.50. This mini-mascara wand applicator brushes on fiber’s that fill and tidy brows in literally seconds.
Base | I’ve only just got the opportunity to try out Givenchy Teint Couture last week and love this foundation. There’s a very slight illuminating quality to it and the coverage is medium and buildable, although it still maintains a gorgeous lightweight feel. Also this one lasts all day long, a major plus point. Available from Debenhams counters, €46.00.
Moisture | My facial oil habit is a year round thing, but I find them to be especially effective in the colder months. My current favourite is Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate, €42.50. Having only hit Kiehls stores late last month, it’s fast become my autumn skincare staple. Packed with citrus & ginger the consistency is a type of serum that absorbs quickly, leading me to use this one day and night.
Lips | I love a red lip come autumn time and right now Givenchy can do no wrong. The Givenchy 10th Anniversary Le Rouge Lipstick comes clad in black leather and is a classic red, gorgeously pigmented with a velvety finish and great staying power. Available from Debenhams counters, €34.50
Scent | Autumn winter means heavier, deeper scents. Not a fan of the original Flowerbomb, I can’t seem to get enough of Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb Extreme. With an elixir-like combination of Jasmine, Osmanthus and Vanilla I literally cannot pass this bottle without a sniff, it’s also one of those scents that lingers all day long. Available at Brown Thomas, €103.
