Clarins \ Autumn Picks!

Instant Smooth / Rouge Prodige (Spiced Orange) / 3-Dot Liner

Lingerie / Silver Green / Aubergine

Instant Smooth / Skin Illusion Foundation (sand) / Silver Green / Lingerie / 3-Dot Eyeliner

With Autumn firmly making it's presence I've been selecting my autumn shades which I love to wear. Khaki greens and berry shades are always at the top of list. The Clarins Autumn Makeup Collection has some real gems which are worth snapping up for this Autumn/Winter. They've launched a plethora of amazing NEW Mineral eyeshadows, meaning they can be worn dry or wet. The packaging is very chic and stylish, I love the traditional gold compact with the signature 'C' embossed on the side.

The new collection also sees 3 new shades of the Rouge Prodige Lipstick, I have the shade Spiced Orange which is a lovely warm autumnal shade. However I think the one product which looks very eye catching is the 3-Dot Eyeliner. I've never seen anything like this, at first I literally thought it was a dot-to-dot for silly people like me who can't apply top liner for toffees! It's actually designed to be applied inbetween lashes to give the illusion of a fuller lash...guess what? IT WORKS! Sometimes in the morning I haven't got time to faff about with top liner and making sure each side is even, but I do love the effect it can give to the eyes. Where as the 3-Dot eyeliner really gives that extra 'umpf' to your lashes. You can apply it as a normal straight eye liner with a steady hand and thankfully I can do this also, yay...pat on the back to me!

One product which has made a huge dent in my foundation routine is the Instant Smooth Perfecting Primer, the formulation is creamy and silky and smooth all together. For me this is the perfect primer, filling pores and fine lines making a space base for my foundation. I use the Clarins Illusion foundation over the top with my Sigma F80 brush, the combination of these 3 items leave my skin looking flawless. 

Have you tried any of these Autumn picks?
