Top 5 Beauty Essentials for Autumn

Hi everyone,
I am so excited that it's now Autumn! Autumn is definitely my favourite season. Bring on the candles; blankets; dark lips; fairy lights and pumpkin spiced lattes! 
However, as the colder weather creeps in, this can wreck havoc with your skin.
Here's a few of my beauty essentials for this Autumn!     
Lipstick: MAC Velvet Teddy

I look forward to the Autumn/Winter months just so that I can wear a dark lipstick. My current go-to is the well-loved 'Velvet Teddy' by MAC. It's a matte brown-toned nude, that I have just been wearing non-stop recently.
Deep Conditioner: Argan Oil Hydrating Hair Mask

I love using this about once a week to fully condition and treat my hair. I find the cold weather really dries out my hair, so I find this helps to put lots of moisture back into it.
I also find the ritual of doing this really relaxing, so it's perfect for a bit of pampering on a cold, autumn evening.
Body Lotion: Zoella Beauty Creamy Madly Dreamy

 Moisturiser has to be my #1 essential for Autumn/Winter as my skin becomes so dry due to the cold weather. I love using a thick body lotion in Autumn to provide a dollop (lovely choice of wording, I know) of instant moisture to my skin. I have been loving using this one in particular lately as it feels very luxurious! It contains Vitamin E, Aloe and Shea Butter, so it leaves my skin feeling smooth and silky.
Bronzer: Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess

Bronzer is a staple in my makeup routine in the Autumn, to try and help keep that summer glow just that little bit longer. I find that this bronzer is perfect as it is really buildable and looks very natural, yet adds a hint of colour to my face. I also love how this comes with a pretty large mirror as well!
Lip Balm: Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Lip Protectant

I love this lip balm in particular as it really soothes and lasts a really long time on my lips, unlike other lip balms that just seem to disappear after 30 seconds or so. This small pot is really convenient just to throw in my handbag to use on-the-go to avoid those pesky dry, chapped lips that just scream Autumn/Winter. Of course you could just opt for good ol' Vaseline instead of this example!

What are your Autumn essentials?
