My Autumn Makeup




It’s finally my favourite time of the year (apart from Christmas obvs), with pumpkin spice being pretty much everywhere I thought It was about time I shared with you my autumnal makeup look as it’s one thing that a lot of my friends and family have been asking me about recently, as I’ve been wearing it pretty much on a daily basis.

Autumnal makeup for me is all about hypnotising golden eyes so I tend to make my eye makeup the focal point instead of the lips, as bold lips are what most people tend to go for when it’s autumn. I’m no way brave enough to go for both so it’s either one or the other.


Close up of the eye makeup.



Here is a break down of my makeup look.

I have been skipping foundation as I’ve been trying to let my skin breath as much as possible and just going straight in with concealer underneath my eyes I use my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer in 01 fair and on my chin, sides of my nose and on any blemishes I may have I use my Nars Creamy Concealer as it last’s all day and is the perfect match for my skin tone. I then set my base with my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 01 Fair. 

To warm up my caspar like face I use for both my contour and bronzer my Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess great for fair skin and it adds that bit more warmth and dimension to my face. Blush I like to keep it simple and my Bourjois blush does just that. I then like to move on swiftly to brows and eyes, I’ve not been using powder to fill my brows in recently and instead just a tinted brow gel as it just looks more natural, my brow gel of choice is Charlotte Tilburys Legendary Brows in Linda.

Eyeswise I prime them first with my Urban Decay Primer Potion and then begin applying the lightest isolde duo shade all over my lids, I then blend this out with my MAC 217 & then begin to add the slightly burnt coppery shade from the duo into my crease and bottom lash line. Once all blended out again with a clean fluffy blending brush I then apply a quick wash of my Charlotte Tilbury Champagne Diamonds in the inner corners and just half way from the centre of my eye. A couple of coats of my Mabeyline Mascara & a swish of lipstick & I’m good to go.
