The Autumn Make Up Edit

As you probably know by now, I love Autumn. I've mentioned before how I love the weather and the holidays which arrive in the Autumn but I also love Autumn make up. It's time to put away the hot pink lipstick, illuminating products and bring out the berry lipsticks and latte eye shadows.  I don't change all my make up but a few things are taken out and a few put in.

Firstly primer, I tend to use a hydrating primer in the colder months just because my skin can become quite dry, the one I'm using at the moment is the Smashbox Colour Correcting Primer.
I tend to mattify my skin also so I like to have an illuminating under eye concealer, one that I have been loving lately is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. This stays all day with out creasing, win.
For a bit more autumnal glow I love to use my good old Mac MSF in Lightscapade.

For eye colour I like to keep to my browns and purples because they complement my eye colour, Maybelline 24 hour colour tattoos in On and On bronze and Metallic Pomegranate are beautiful colours for the autumn. Brilliant for on the go too. I also love a matte eye so for that I use my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.  To keep my eyes looking less red and tired from the cold winds I use Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Pencil in Nude, the perfect salmon colour to look natural.

For lipstick I love Macs Rebel Lipstick, a beautiful plum colour that can be toned down for an everyday look. Another bold lip that I love is Illamasquas Eurydice, a bright fuchsia pink. I also adore a pink toned nude teamed with a smokey eye I find YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Nude Beige is perfect to team with a smokey eye without giving the look of dead lips.

What will you be wearing on your face this Autumn?
