One popular and recurring autumn/winter trend is to embrace the darker side of the makeup palette, bringing berry and burgundy shades out of the shadows and into the limelight. I'm all for this yearly makeup bag shakeup and these are the products that have made it into my routine.
I've been using the right hand side of my the Balm Nude 'Tude palette quite a lot recently. Despite being wildly out of my comfort zone, the shade "Sexy" is surprisingly wearable. I've been enjoying wearing it smudged along my lash line giving a "soft underline" look.
An easy way to wear darker lip shades is to blot them onto your lips and wear them as a stain. The berry lipstick I've been enjoying this week is Catrice's Lipstick in Berry Bradshaw, and for a dark burgundy pout I always return to Rimmel's Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in shade 107.
The only polish that's been on my radar this month is Ciaté's paint pot in Dangerous Affair*. It's a wonderful deep, deep red and I've found that it lasts really well on my nails. If you want to invest in a nail polish this autumn/winter then I'd definitely recommend this one.
Have you been reaching for berry and burgundy shades too?
