Guest Blogger: AW17 Essentials

In this article, local lifestyle, food and beauty blogger Katie Woo helps you find your Glowing Autumn/Winter Goddess Essentials!

Where has summer gone?! It’s gone in a flash. We can’t complain we didn’t get enough sun during the heat waves in the early months of Summer. So now that chance for a Summer tan has disappeared we need help finding that healthy glow again. We all want to keep a Summer glow for as long as possible so here are some Autumn/Winter essentials to keep you looking like a glowing goddess throughout the cooler A/W months.


Keep that skin plump and replenished to combat the chilly Autumn winds. Our skin feels a lot tighter as the weather gets cooler, and you can really feel the effects of cold weather on your skin. The best way to protect your skin is to have a similar routine to the Summer months. During the Summer we (well some of us) get too much sun, it dehydrates our skin so we have got to keep our skin’s hydration balance in check.

Another key essential not only in the Summer months but Winter too, is to apply a low SPF on your skin to protect your skin from the UV rays. Any dermatologist will say SPFs are vital to keep in your skincare regime, to protect your skin from UV damage all year round and help with signs of ageing. Wearing a lightweight SPF every day will help your skin even on those cloudy, overcast days.

With the help of your hydrating skincare routine your skin should be on it’s way to feeling plump, looking fresh and bringing out that glow. Here are a few make-up essentials to help create a glowing goddess look.


Eyelash Curlers

Wide awake eyes are the quickest way to get standout lashes.


Tinted Moisturiser

Don’t cover up your gorgeous natural glowing skin too much. Give your skin a helping hand throughout the day by applying a moisturising tinted moisturiser/BB cream.

If the weather is drying out your skin and foundations/concealers feel tight and dry at the end of the day opt to find the hydrating products for this season.


Long Lasting Eye Shadows Sticks

Crayon/Stick eye shadows are easy to use without getting excess glitter/shimmer all over your face. Try some gorgeous neutral shades to give your eyes a bit of a pop.

For a cream shimmer haze try Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Sugarfrost – Tan Biege Shimmer.



To add some Summer warmth to your face.

et viola! A glowing Autumn/Winter goddess!
