Light fa­cial gels for hy­drat­ing creams

As au­tumn in Scot­land very quickly de­scends into rain, wind and some­times, let’s be hon­est, even snow, you’ve got to think about weath­er­proof­ing your face now. Harsh out­door con­di­tions give your skin a bat­ter­ing and then in­side the cen­tral heat­ing strips it of even more mois­ture. So if you want your skin to look and feel good, you have to swap out your lighter sum­mer for­mu­la­tions and bring in the big guns. I’ve found this one by Kiehl’s is a great all-rounder for the au­tumn/win­ter months be­cause it gets to work con­tin­u­ously on your skin for 24 hours af­ter ap­pli­ca­tion.

Gloss for matte

I’ve al­ready men­tioned that the windy weather is on it’s way back and is about to un­for­tu­nately set­tle over Scot­land for the next five/six months, so lip­gloss is go­ing to be more has­sle than it’s worth (you will end up with half your hair stuck to your lips). So ditch the shine and em­brace matte lips. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are such good value and last for hours – so why not try one of the shades be­low?

Peach blush for dusky rose

This one is op­tional – if you’ve found a fresh, peachy blush that you just adore, then by all means stick with it. But if you’re up for some ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and would love to see how a cooler tone that’s more suited to the sea­son would look, give a dusky rose shade a go. It’s sim­i­lar to peach in the sense that in the spec­trum of the dusky rose shades there’s a tone to suit ev­ery­one. Max Fac­tor Creme Puff Blush is ideal be­cause they have a se­lec­tion of pinky tones in a sheer but build-able for­mu­la­tion, plus they’re ex­tremely wear­able and flat­ter­ing. See be­low for my sug­ges­tions of the best shade for your skin tone:

Bronze eyes for shades of red

Don’t panic – wear­ing shad­ows with red­dish un­der­tones on the eyes is far less scary than it sounds. Deep cran­berry is gor­geous on all eye shades and skin tones, as are hints of claret, rust and plummy pur­ples. Just think of deep reds as richer ver­sions of your usual brown or grey shades. Take a look be­low for more proof of how gor­geous these tones look...
