KEEPING A GLOW INTO AUTUMN
It's been a while since I updated you on which beauty products I use. As I write this post I'm starting to feel very autumnal and as the season changes I'm thinking about the hair and beauty products I'll be using into the colder, yet cosy, season.
My beauty routine doesn't drastically change throughout the year but I do make subtle changes to achieve the look I'm aiming for. For autumn that means maintaining my summer glow, even when the nights and mornings are a little more dark and drizzly.
Here are my top products for keeping a glow into autumn.
I've been using Monat shampoo and conditioner products for about a month now and the difference is incredible. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with my hair but Monat products are great for keeping my hair healthy and bouncy come rain or shine.
When the colder weather hits I often find my skin drying out a little, however body butter from The Body Shop is a life savior. The cream, which can be used allover your body and comes in a range of different scents so depending on your preference you can choose one to suit you. It's incredibly nourishing and best of all, like every Body Shop product, it's cruelty free.
You may have read a couple of weeks ago that I was treated to a lovely facial at Clarins in Aberdeen. Since then I've been using a number of Clarins products including the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which is a new favourite. If you're one of my Aberdeen readers, remember that you can make the most of 10% off Clarins products and treatments at the Clarins spa in Debenhams by using code JULIE10
A relatively recent release, the Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation is my new go to for a glowy look. Unlike many foundations, it lasts all day, doesn't rub off on clothes and has a lovely natural glow. I apply a small amount in the morning on top of a primer and only need a little touch of concealer to cover up any dark circles or blemishes.
This one is always on my list. I've been using the bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Colour Bronzer for a while now and still completely love it. I'm always a little worried about looking too orange, or too pale, but this is the perfect colour and coverage for giving a lovely warm and healthy glow.
