Best of beauty for October

Wednesday, 2nd October, 2019 3:52pm

I have been dying to crack out the berry shades and the warm browns. I’ve had enough of summer hues and am ready to embrace the darker side of everything!

If we saw anything at fall fashion week, it’s that great skin is in. Bold lips, sheer skin and minimal makeup is what they wore on the catwalk.

A single shadow swept over the lid is the trend for this season.

Get those sultry eyes with Perfect Eyes (€9.95) from IsaDora in Bohemian (copper brown), Aubergine (darkest purple) and Cashmere (warm beige with a little sparkle) which are solo shadows with highly pigmented, long wearing formulas and are available from pharmacies across Cork.

With its satin-like formula and pearl like gleam, Skin Perfecting Illuminator (€10.95) from Note Cosmetics hydrates, smooths, brightens skin and corrects the skin tone. Suitable for normal, dry and matte skin types, Skin Perfecting Illuminator can also be used on its own as a highlighter. I have also mixed it with my foundation that’s matte to make it more glowy. Use your fingers to apply a very small dab of illuminator.

Day to day, we’re probably showing a little less skin than the warmer months. Give skin a subtle natural glow with he-shi Body Sculpting Gradual Tan (€23).

An innovative solution that not only gives all over luminosity, but also helps the skin’s condition. It's ideal for sensitive skin.

As skin is so in right now, I recommend a long bath and a face mask. Pop some Epsom salts for a good detox treat for your body!

Skin Formulas Mask Exfoliator (€35) is an ultra-hydrating mask with fruit enzymes and glycolic acid to gently exfoliate build up of dead skin cells and infuse your skin with essential antioxidants. The nourishing botanical extracts stimulate a brighter, smoother, more radiant appearance. Ideal for dry, dehydrated, sensitive, rosacea affected skin.

As it’s unlikely you’ll ever see me in a catsuit, I’d highly suggest trialing Wet’n’Wild liquid catsuit. Get the season statement matte red lip with this gorgeous lip product. This lip lacquer delivers long-lasting, maximum colour.

An ultra-pigmented lip lacquer that delivers a high-impact, super-rich, saturated pigment, it offers vibrancy that stays saturated with colour. The formula feels soft on lips, never sticky and is available in five fragrance-free and vegan shades.

More and more women don’t just want their beauty products to be free of animal testing, but also free of additives and vegan. Catrice answers this wish with the new limited edition Pure Simplicity. The new series will be available until the end of November. The cosmetics products in the categories face, lips and nails are free of PEGs (polyethylene glycols); the lipsticks also do without silicones yet still intensively care for the sensitive skin on your lips.

Despite the cleaner texture, there are no compromises in the effectiveness of the range; all products deliver the high performance that Catrice is known for. For example, the new lip colours offer intensive red tones, but do not contain carmine and are vegan. This is a really progressive step for beauty. In addition, the packaging also consists of paper and bamboo.

Pure Simplicity Baked Blush has a soft texture, is highly pigmented and blends easily. With gentle shimmer pigments, it creates a fresh complexion that lights up the cheeks, even in the cooler autumn months. The vegan blush is available in four colours that harmonise perfectly with the Pure Simplicity Matt Lip Colour and the Pure Simplicity Nail Colour in the same shade.

For decadence, the Throwbacks Collection from Huda Beauty is comprised of the softest pinks and warmest browns. These eight new lip shades were developed in pairs inclusive of warm and cool-toned versions of the most popular must-have shades. Proving that the importance of undertones isn’t limited to complexion products, this bespoke approach to lipstick has ensured that each shade complements specific skin tones and undertones, so no shade and lip is left behind. Nothing completes a statement beauty look like pigment-packed lip colour. These shades will have you nostalgic for the good old days of baggy denims and platform trainers. I do love a good reminder of girl power!
