Gold & Bold, an A/W look | beauty

As the seasons change so does how we do our makeup, I am the world's worst for getting a routine and just putting on that same face everyday in a rush, but I thought I would experiment with changing up a look I do all the time and just add a lot of sparkle in there for the Autumn. I have wanted to try this for a while that I think will make the perfect day to night face for A/W.

When I say day to night, I think it can be done up or down for either, but even someone like me who embraces a bold lip on casual occasions wouldn't suggest wearing this to the office. I just think it would be beautiful for a day of shopping or lunch with the girls, even a day date as well as transitioning for evening drinks or a dinner too. 

The overall look.
