Matte Lip Crayon

Autumn beauty is all about sophisticated elegance, and No7 has created the perfect collection to help you look and feel just that. The NEW No7 Autumn Collection combines smokey eyes, patent nails and matte lips, everything you need to achieve understated glamour as you move into autumn.

Get the perfect pout this autumn with NEW No7 Matte Lip Crayon in Raspberry Red and Raspberry Wine (£9.00). Try Raspberry Red if you want to brighten up your look, or give the Raspberry Wine shade a go if you fancy something a little sultrier.

No7 Advisor, Geraldine Freer says: “A bold lip is a must-have essential to achieve a sultry autumn look. The matte version of No7 High Shine Lip Crayon works perfectly to achieve a deep colour which will stay put, but also adds a little moisture to your lips too. Start by applying the crayon in the middle of your lips and begin to blend outward. For fuller lips and a richer colour, apply several coats.”

Contrast your matte lips and with a patent finish on your nails with NEW No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Blue Patent and Black Patent (£6.00). One stroke gives you a pigment rich colour with a quick drying ultra-gloss finish.

Geraldine suggests: “The secret to a perfect manicure is the preparation before. Start off by buffing your nails to help smooth the nail base and remove any ridges. Next, soak your nails in warm water before pushing back your cuticles – a few drops of jojoba or almond oil in the water will also help soften them. To make the most of the patent finish and prevent your nails from chipping, apply a No7 base coat first, leave it to dry and then apply 2 coats of the nail colour. Finally, use a glossy No7 top coat to leave your nails lovely and shiny.”

Next, give the classic smoky eye a modern twist by adding a touch of navy with the NEW No7 Stay Perfect In The Navy Eye Shadow Trio (£9.50).

Geraldine recommends:“Smokey eyes don’t always have to be black – and this gorgeous trio of colours is great way to update your look, whilst also achieving the ultimate smouldering glance. For best results, use the shimmery shade as a subtle highlighter and sweep it just under your brow-bone– perfect for a little autumn evening glamour. Next, apply the mink shade as a base all over your eyelids, and then blend the navy shade into the contours of your eyes, building up for a more dramatic look. To ensure smooth application and prevent creasing, use the No7 Stay Perfect Smoothing & Brightening Eye Base beforehand.”

Achieve a fresh rosy glow by adding a pop of colour to your cheeks with NEW No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush in Watermelon (£9.95). Designed with an innovative twist-up applicator, it’s the perfect size for on the go application.

Geraldine adds: “The No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush is very versatile. Gently sweep it onto your cheekbones and blend with your fingers for a subtle look, or add more to build up a more intense colour. Try using it on your lips as well for an added hint of autumnal colour.”
