I love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I’m pretty sure she was created in a lab dedicated to populating the world with perfect humans. I just needed to get that out of the way before I started this blog post. Rosie has been working with M&S in some capacity for about 5 years (including ranges of underwear and sportswear) and it seems to be a great fit. But today I wanted to show you some of her Rosie by Autograph make up range.
These days it’s rare that I dedicate a whole blog post to one make up range – I pick and choose my daily make up from all over, so my make up bag of current favourites contains many different brands. But I felt that this beautiful range called for its own post.
The concept of the Rosie by Autograph make up range really appealed to me but – with it being a collaboration with a model famous for being having ‘natural’ look – it’s a very nude, pretty and glowy collection which isn’t my usual thing! I’m more of a full coverage, bright and bold make up girl (as fans of my #UnwearableLex series will know!)
The first thing that stands out is the absolutely stunning packaging. Rose gold and oh-so-shiny, it has a vintage feel to it, which is emboldened by the delicate engraved branding on the products. The focus is very much on prettiness and a chic aesthetic. The packaging feels as expensive as it looks, with that reassuring sturdy weight and click-to-close.
My favourite products by far are the Rosie for Autograph Cream Eyeshadow Sticks: they’re metallic but beautifully creamy so they glide onto the eyelid without dragging and can be blended very easily – which makes a quick smokey eye a doddle. Sometimes with very creamy eye products, the longevity suffers but these last for bloody ages without creasing, even on my oily eyelids.
The colours are dreamy: Feline Fox* is a beautiful bronze that would look wonderful on everyone and Movie Star Crush* (my current favourite) is a smokey mauve-brown that makes green/blue eyes look incredible. I was wearing it in THIS picture and think it looks so soft and pretty.
If you have oily skin like me, then cream blushers* can sometimes be too greasy and leave you looking too shiny. But these apply beautifully and dry to a powder finish. The colours are pretty and sheer so they’re very easy to use, whether you’re applying them with fingers or a Beauty Blender.
And finally, the powder bronzer*. Bronzer can often be tricky for pale or fair women like me but this one hasn’t left my make up bag ever since I opened it! It’s a little more warm-toned than I would typically go for, but the pigmentation is so light that you can give yourself the softest of warmth without looking like an Oompa Loompa!
It’s unlikely that I’ll be retiring my weird coloured lipsticks and turning into a natural beauty lover any time soon, but the Rosie by Autograph beauty range is definitely helping to convert me! Do any of the items in this collection catch your eye? Have you tried anything else from the range that you would recommend? Let me know in the comments below!
