I can’t believe that we are nearly in November already! Over the past week or two it’s definitely got colder and is starting to feel more like Winter never mind Autumn. Despite the fluffy socks, hot chocolate filled evenings and beautiful shaded leaves, my favourite part is the change in makeup. I always pull out the darker shades in my makeup collection, the shades that my skin tone suit the most. This is the post dedicated to this year’s favourite Autumn makeup picks.
Left to Right: Copper Coin, Festive Flame, Pumpkin, Extra Bitter, Faith, Lockout & Cyprus Bronze
I can’t write this post without mentioning the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette. This is a lovely combination of matte shades that is perfect for any season. I haven’t wrote about this one much on the blog but I am having a love affair with it at the moment. I particularly love the shades: Extra Bitter, Faith and Lockout. They are just so beautiful when they are all blended together.
Next, on the list of eyes is the Makeup Revolution Soph X palette. I wrote a full review here so I am not going to go into to much depth. Again, the palette is a lovely mix of matte and shimmer shades ranging from brown and golden tones to orange and red tones – it makes for the perfect makeup treat. My favourite colours are currently Copper Coin, Festive Flame and Pumpkin however these change on a weekly basis.
Finally, I have recently dug out The Body Shop’s Eye Colour Stick in the shade Cyprus Bronze and I can’t believe I haven’t been using it. On those days where I have wanted to spend more time in bed rather than blending eyeshadow for days, this is the one a usually jump for. The colour is truly gorgeous, looks lovely on the eye lid and glides on so easily. I’m so tempted to go back and pick up another shade just because of how simple they are to use.
Left to Right: Flushed, Boss Lady and Grunge
I’m usually the lipstick queen when it comes to Autumn. I always switch them up on a daily basis however this year there has only ever been one of two on my lips. The first is ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Grunge. I have talked about the love of this lip product before but I am still so in love. It’s a lovely chocolatey brown colour and even smells like chocolate too. The other lipstick I have been loving is the Makeup Geek Plush Lip Matte in Boss Lady. I don’t know anyone who isn’t partial to a warm, red-toned lipstick once it’s reached the autumnal months and this year it is Makeup Geek that has stole my heart. They are similar as they are both matte lip products however compared to Grunge, Boss Lady feels a lit bit more sticky and takes a little longer to dry but other than that I have been pairing both with just about everything I wear these days.
Since my makeup clear out, I managed to find my extremely old Sleek Blush in Flushed that should really be re-purchased because of how old it is but I’m so in love and I don’t think they sell the shade any more. The blush goes so well with Boss Lady too. Update: they sell Flushed so maybe it’s time to buy a new one.
Similarly to lipstick, I haven’t been wearing much nail varnish either. Although I have narrowed down my collection so it fits in one box instead of taking up a whole draw which for me is rather brilliant. The two that I have been loving have both been from Barry M. The first is a Gelly Hi-Shine in Chilli and the other being a Matte Nail Paint in Crush. Both are gorgeous colours however one is obviously matte and the other gives a nice sheen to the nails. The other reason why I love them is that both formulas dry super quick so you don’t have to be waving your hands in silly directions waiting for your nail varnish to dry.
What have you been loving this Autumn? Anything I should pick up?
