Now that autumn is well and truly here, it’s been a great time to take a note of the makeup I’ve been wearing, and adjust it slightly for the chillier temperatures. Over the past few months, I feel like my everyday makeup routine has gotten a lot lighter and fresher than before, and that’s something I want to continue through into the colder weather. But dropping temperatures and more grey days means that the colours I’ve been using have needed a little adjustment.
With a tan, I’m not sure that there is anything prettier than a great blush. Whilst I had a whisper of colour (I’m naturally pretty pale), I’ve been loving a little of Sisley’s Phyto Blush Twist in 3 Papaya. It’s a bright pop of orange-toned coral which lifts the complexion and adds a real sense of fun to otherwise natural makeup looks. Once I’ve applied my tinted moisturiser as normal, I add a little papaya on the top of the apples of my cheeks, and blend with a beauty blender. Then I finish everything off with a swipe of my normal bronzer and I’m good to go.
Now that I’m paler than before, I’ve been doing the same thing with 1 Petal, which is the most perfect candy pink colour. It makes such a difference to my face – I also find that using such a fresh pink makes teeth and eyes look super white!
The texture of Sisley’s Phyto Blush Twists is just perfection – they apply as soft and easily as a cream blush, and can be built up or sheered out depending on how dramatic you’d like to look. Since they’re so easy to work with, I also normally blend a little into my lips for a chic, monochromatic look.
