Hello hello helloooo!! I hope you’re all having a fabulous morning. Autumn is finally here!! I absolutely love autumn and winter, it’s just so cosy and I especially love the autumn colours of eyeshadow and lipstick. So today, I will be sharing my favourite autumn make-up look with you all.
First of all, I used the benefit brightening face primer, which I only have in a small tube but will definitely be getting myself a bigger one when it runs out. It is an amazing primer and keeps my make-up on all day, so it does the job! Although, it is quite pricey.
I then used my trustworthy rimmel match perfection foundation, in the shade true ivory. This foundation is no where near as expensive as many other foundations and has a lot of coverage. I would definitely suggest trying out the colours on your hand before buying them, instead of guessing. I used the Primark ps pro brush to apply the foundation and I found this very very good, but it does need a good clean every 2 weeks at least.
Obviously concealer is next, and I use my all time favourite Collection lasting perfection concealer, which I’m sure you’ve heard tons of good reviews about; you would not believe how cheap it is but has the most amazing coverage. Again, I suggest that you all try out the concealer on your hand or even face as mine is quite dark for my face. To apply the concealer, I used the Primark beauty blender. It can be very stiff compared to high end beauty blenders but for a pound, it definitely does what it’s meant to.
I then went on to powder which is my absolute saviour when I’m having a really busy and flustered day. I use the Rimmel, stay matte powder which really just does what it says on the tin. However it doesn’t last that long on oily skin. I used my bhcosmetics brush which does the job but can pick up a lot of oil if you’re reapplying after a few hours.
After powder, I just used some blush as this look is an everyday make-up look, I don’t tend to wear highlighter or much bronzer during the day or in autumn. The blush is from the revolution ultra sculpt & contour kit, which I find has a glow tint to the pink pigment which I like as it brightens up your face. I used a cheap brush from superdrug to apply this, which isn’t one of my favourites as it isn’t very soft on the skin but does the job of applying my blush.
Finally I got onto my eyebrows which is one of the longer tasks. At the moment, I’m using the MUA eyebrow kit, but the more I use it, the worse it seems to get at applying. I absolutely loved it for a long while, but now it has started to be harder to apply and I’m not sure whether it is the product or the brush I use. The brush I use is from Primark, and is slightly too thick for my liking but for the moment, whilst I save up, it is doing the job. I brush through my eyebrows first, then use the wax, then the powder to finish off.
Now onto my eyes, I firstly put on the collection eye primer which is absolutely amazing and I really really recommend it! My eyeshadow only came off a little when I went in the shower with it on. For my eyeshadow, I used a whole range of different shades:
First of all I used the shade ‘tease’ in the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, just to give my eyelid some colour and definition. It is also a good base for the brown, autumn look I’m going for.
Secondly, I used the shade ‘suspect’ also in the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, to add a bit of glitter and shine to my eyelid as I’m really getting into that at the moment, I think it makes your eyes look beautiful when the sun catches it.
Thirdly, I used the goldy, browny shade in the Run Boy Run Revolution eyeshadow palette. This was to add a little more glitter, but with a darker shade. I applied this to the outer half of my eyelid, so that I could gradually go darker as I went out. By this point, you have a lot of glitter so if you don’t like that much glitter then I suggest that you leave this step out.
Finally, to finish off with my eyes, I used the shade ‘busted’ from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. This was to define the eyes a lot more and make them stand out. I only added this to the outer corner of my eyelid so that my whole eye wasn’t covered in dark brown. I think that this eyeshadow look is a very autumn make-up look and goes really well with any outfit.
To finish off my autumn make-up look, I used the MAC lipstick, in the shade ‘whirl’ which is the most amazing lipstick and feels really nice on the skin, whilst also staying on for a long time. The brown colour reminds me of autumn so much!!
