As we begin to leave summer behind and head towards autumn, there are plenty of exciting new products and warmer toned shades to embrace. But which summery products can we still continue using on a daily basis, even as the days turn colder? I’ve popped a few of my favourites from August that I’ll be making sure to use all the way through autumn and beyond.
Luminous Foundation from Anastasia Beverly Hills
Celebrity favourite Anastasia Beverly Hills launched their first ever liquid foundation, for face this summer and I fell head over heels with it and will definitely continue to use during autumn and winter. Available in an amazingly diverse 50 shades, this luminous base foundation has 5 shade categories (Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Deep) and 3 undertones (Neutral, Cool, Warm) ensuring the perfect colour match for every skin tone.
This feather light liquid formula offers medium to full coverage for everyday use. The unique formula of Luminous Foundation delivers ultimate luminosity and glow to enhance the appearance of skin with a fresh and natural finish. Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation offers a beautifully even, perfected and radiant skin tone with every use and has been developed without oil to ensure durability and no flashback–for a perfect all-night lasting, camera approved finish. Priced at £43.00 from Selfridges.

An advanced light weight daily moisturizer with SPF 50 to protect the skin and provide a barrier from UV rays.

Prived at £89 and available from Space NK and www.drdavidjack.com
Flash Nude [Fluid] from FILORGA
It is everyone’s dream to have perfect skin, so perfect that you can carry off that bare-skin look and still look flawless. FILORGA is revolutionising current make-up routines with a new range of hybrid products Flash-Nude skincare that will help you achieve just that! I have been using this as a light and weightless summer tinted fluid and it has been great at helping to conceal any dark spots and redness.
This would work equally well during the autumn and winter months when you still need some SPF and want a lighter makeup day that will leave your skin looking radiant and healthy. Priced at £30.00 from Debenhams, FeelUnique.com, LookFantastic.com BeautyExpert.com and Marks & Spencer.
Missguided Chill Babe Fragrance
Chill Babe is the latest fragrance by global fashion brand Missguided. The feisty, floral fragrance is the ultimate empowering scent created exclusively for a new generation of confident women. The evocative new fragrance opens with accords of raspberry and pear sorbet and is mixed with sparkling citrus. A heart of cyclamen, jasmine and rose notes are linked to a warm, woody base of white patchouli, vanilla and amber crystals.
Chill Babe is the latest addition to Missguided’s award-winning, vegan and cruelty-free collection. Missguided’s distinctive can design is refreshed in a metallic silver finish. The pefect scent to conjure up images of summer but one that works equally well as we move into the crisp autumnal months. RRP £28.00 from www.missguided.com and all other retailers.
Sunday Riley C.E.O Glow Face Oil
If you have been reading here for a while you will know that Sunday Riley products are some of my most used and loved. I have been using C.E.O Glow all throughout the summer to keep my skin looking and feeling hydrated and healthy. During long periods in the sun, our skin can become dry and damaged (even if like me you do use factor 50 sunscreen religiously!) so this has been a total savoir.
I can see the Sunday Riley C.E.O Glow products working really well during autumn and winter as the weather changes. This is so easy to use. Simply massage 2-3 drops as needed into face, neck and décolletage. It can be blended or layered with any face product. Available from sundayriley.com, cult beauty and more. Priced at £34.00 for 15 ml and a little goes a long way.
Profusion Paradise Eyeshadow Palette
This summer Profusion helped us to capture the spirit of the island life with this multi-finish, Paradise Eyeshadow Palette. The richly saturated, silky and blendable shades range from sandy neutrals to coastline blues and pops of sun-drenched hues. Whilst you might not find yourself reaching for all of the brighter tones of this palette during autumn, there are still plenty of wearable colours that would work for day-to-day wear or evenings. Some of the warm copper toned shades would be perfectly autumnal toned and the purples would look amazing as a pop of colour belnded into the crease. Priced at £15.00 from www.profusioncosmetics.co.uk
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray ‘ Summer Solstice ‘
Now I have been raving about the original Urban Decay setting spray since it was first released so it was safe to say that I would love the new fragrance when it came out this summer. I’m not quite ready to let go of the summer just yet, so the gorgeous notes of crushed pineapple, coconut and a sea salt breeze will definitely cause me to reach for the Urban Decay All Nighter ‘Summer Solstice’ scented makeup setting spray for a while!

Algenist Concentrated Luminizing Drops
Now this has been a fantastic product to use during the summer months but I do think that I’ll actually need it more than ever during autumn and winter when my skin starts to look dull. These featherweight serum highlighting drops capture and diffuse light. This gives a natural, radiant and contoured appearance to the face. Apply it to your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, brow-bone and decolletage to create a luminous, radiant glow without being glittery. A beautiful everyday product to ensure that you keep your summer glow, no matter what the season! Available from Space NK, Cult Beauty, Look Fantastic and more!
