Berry On Trend

24 comments


Berry colours are always on trend at this time of year. I can't remember the last time over the past few months where a berry colour hasn't  featured in my makeup look or on my nails. It'd be pretty much impossible seeing as this is the only colour I wear on my nails anymore because I just love how it looks. I think berry shades are just so autumn winter. They're shades I wouldn't reach for in the summer season, I just find they're too dark, but they're perfect for the dark days and nights at the moment. They really reflect the season well, and I just love reaching for them everyday now. I'll be sad when they're put away for spring and the lighter shades reappear!

After going through my makeup stash I realised I actually own a lot of darker shades of makeup, which is odd because I always used to be a natural type of girl, not venturing out of the nude shades often. It was hard to pick a few favourites but my top picks at the moment are; Glo & Ray Skybreaker Eyeliner in Burgundy*, this is such a gorgeous wearable shade, I love sweeping this across my lower lash line to darken up a look, or just add some colour to a more natural look. Next is a Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate, I cannot stop wearing this, even though it looks a lot different on than it does in the pot, I love it so much and it's just so pretty. 

My favourite autumn lipstick of all time is MAC's Rebel, this lipstick is so scary in the bullet, it's a colour I'd never even look at, but when you apply it the colour is so different, a lot more wearable. My autumn blush actually annoys me because I don't have a clue what shade it is! It's an ELF Powder Blush, I bought it a while ago and only recently started using it, but they don't have shade names on them! I'm taking a guess that it might be Blushing Rose, but don't hold me to that! Lastly, is obviously a nail varnish to finish the look, this is Barry M's Berry Cosmo. It is my all time favourite nail polish, I literally wear this all year round. Oops. Bad blogger.

Are you rocking the berry trend, what are your favourite products?

  13. Berry tones are my absolute fave, your picks are great! I love simple mascara paired with a vampy berry lip, dark brows and a gorgeous berry nail polish to compliment! My favourite nail polish at the minute is probably a deep red Kiko one in shade 02! x

    Always, Alice x
