Fashions Finest has come up with some great products which will ensure your nose, mouth, chin and cheeks stay beautiful throughout the mask wearing months to come, as well as the heat waves we are willing our way in the late summer. (We can but hope!)
Upgrade Your Cleansing Programme
The daily, or even twice daily routine of cleansing and moisturising your skin is the first step in ensuring it stays clean, smooth and healthy looking. Especially with the extra heat and discomfort of mask wearing. Take a look at the range of oil based facial cleansers available, and choose the best for you and your lifestyle. Regardless of whether your skin type is dry, oily or a combination, using an oil based cleanser can help to hydrate your skin as well as remove impurities, and cleanse. A great addition to boost your current cleansing routine.
Make The Most Of Your Eyes
Marks and Spencer
Since your eyes are what you are using to communicate most with, now the rest of your face is hidden with a mask for much of the time, consider accentuating and highlighting your peepers with the Autograph range from Marks and Spencer. These stunning eye shadow palette's will add sparkle and glamour to your brows, and each palette comes with four stunning complementary colours that work together to create a glamorous look. Simply wear your favourite shade on its own, or combine using the lighter colours to highlight and the darker ones to add depth and definition to your eyes.
Less Is More
The saying ‘less is more’ could well be true when it comes to protecting your face from breakouts! Consider wearing tinted moisturiser, BB cream or CC cream depending on what works best for your skin. These products are often more nourishing and much lighter on the skin than makeup.
Boots No 7 city lights tinted moisturiser comes in a myriad of colours to suit your skin, and they contain SPF 15 to protect your skin from sun damage as well. This great – tried and tested product is fantastic to mix, so you can buy two shades, and mix them dependant on the season, and how dark your skin is at that time, or you can also mix them with any other creams and foundations to find your perfect coverage!
Try using a lipstick that is both hydrating and long lasting, like this Stila stay all day® liquid lipstick available from look fantastic. Enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, this lipstick deeply nourishes and hydrates lips, whilst delivering bold colour that won't bleed or transfer for over 6 hours of wear. Lips are left silky smooth and bursting with moisture. If you want to add an extra ‘pop’ to your lips when you take your mask off, carry a tube of clear lip gloss, and apply that to your lips. It’s easy, quick and doesn’t require a mirror either.
We are expecting much more warmth and sun to come our way before the summer ends, however, if you want a great, natural looking and even tan from your hair line to your toe nails, Fashions Finest recommends a fake bake.
St Moriz 5 in 1 tanning mousse from Superdrug promises to deliver a natural looking healthy glow to your whole body, which develops over time. It's specialist multi-tasking formulation will provide extra moisture, a luxurious luminous finish and a longer lasting golden tan, and a boost of radiance. With an instant guide colour, it ensures ease of application and full coverage, even for a beginner.

At home or while traveling, comfortable and casual shoes are a must for getting around.
Even though the fashion month is in full swing, we won’t be seeing those trends ‘come to life’ for months to come, but that’s perfectly fine, as there is an entire universe of fall trends that are just getting their place in the limelight and are just waiting for us to shop and flaunt them. Given how inspired and inspirational, not to mention far from drab and inconspicuous the autumn 2018 trends are, there is no chance you won’t shine and make yourself feel just a little bit better in amazing clothing that spites the autumn, which, let’s face it, can be gloomy sometimes.
There is a plethora of trends, but we have chosen the very best for you, and the best part is, they are now all yours for the picking, so pick away and go dazzle.
You’ll Love It
Whether we’re keen on a particular pattern or not, the runways have a way of making us inclined towards it once we see it on the models. Such is the case with animal print, about which opinions have been heavily divided, but more and more people are giving in to the trend. A statement leopard print coat seems to be all the rage right now, at least according to the street style section, and we have to say, it looks pretty darn classy when worn with neutral colors. However, if this isn’t really your cup of tea, you can always embrace the trend in a more subtle manner, with a pair of leopard print ankle boots for instance, which are enough to elevate an outfit but not as risky as a larger garment, so you don’t run the risk of making a fashion mistake.
Puff It Up
One of the most romantic trends, at least in our opinion, is the puff-sleeve trend that has been spotted on a number of garments, from simple tops to dressy blouses and even amazing autumn dresses. The best part is that, since the jeans plus a dressy top trend has made a low-key comeback, you can feel free to rock your puffy blouse with a pair of mom jeans or any other jeans that do your body justice and feel amazing. The fabrics are usually soft, so you can always put a trench coat over the blouse if it gets chilly and you’ll look amazing and a little ostentatious – in the best way, when you remove the coat.
The popularity of the grey oversized checked blazer, usually long enough to serve as a tuxedo dress at times, doesn’t seem to be dwindling down. If you haven’t grabbed your version, make sure to hop to it ASAP, because the pattern didn’t only mark the fall season but also has staying power, which makes it a great investment. Aside from that, with the mixture of menswear-inspired garments and those purely feminine, you’re going to need this baby to exude those mixed vibes. And if it remains as popular as it is now, it might just dethrone the mighty trench coat.
In Layering We Believe

Some are still in mourning over the end of summer, but instead of wallowing, jump on the amazing layering train, which allows you to show your mad mixing and matching skills and lets you unleash your inner fashion persona. There’s no need to say goodbye to dresses, as you can buy women’s dresses online, amazing and affordable ones at that, and practice the art of smart and chic layering. You can rock strappy dresses with shirts underneath and exude those trendy ‘90s vibes, and add a touch of athleisure with a warm and cozy pair of sneakers and cool and trendy polka dot tights. Finish off the look with a luxurious-looking long grey cardigan and bam – you’ve got yourself some layering gold.
A Complete Inevitability
After a close inspection of the street style section of every fashion capital from Oslo to New York and London, the verdict is in, and the white boot trend still remains untouchable. Whether you’ll go for knee-high or the ankle ones is irrelevant, you simply must snag a pair. They have proven not only their chicness, but also their versatility; they’ve been rocked with simple jeans, tracksuits, frilly dresses and power suits. So, it’s time for us to give in and let them elevate our look and mystically blend into each one at the same time. We don’t know how, but these boots have become a complete style chameleon.
Carolina Herrera may have given away the creative reigns, but she did leave us with one final message – always be elegant and don’t be afraid to play with colour. One of the absolute best looks, one that we presume will be remembered and worn for years to come, is the one featuring a simple crisp white shirt, a ball gown skirt and a wide belt in a contrasting colour. This is a look worthy of the red carpet and meeting the queen, but it is also great for going out or even rocking it at work. We have been reminded, once again, that there is so much beauty in simplicity, even when that simplicity includes colour-blocking. As pieces like these are easy to find, go and find your go-to colours and mix like there’s no tomorrow.
Finally, let us not forget about the mighty power suit. Every woman should own one, whether she is a ladyboss or not, because we all deserve to feel and look powerful. There are so many cuts that you can choose from fitted and oversized tailored blazers and wide-leg trousers in checked pattern, pastels or saturated colours, so make sure you pick one out and wear it as often as you can because this is unquestionably the outfit of autumn 2018.
