Autumn has now arrived, with it arrives the change in leaves, days coming to an end sooner and people chuffing on about Christmas and Halloween. With this in mind, beauty bloggers are sharing their Autumnal make up looks all the time. Although i’m not specifically a beauty blogger I wanted to get in on the act.
When it comes to Autumn, I typically where a dark lip and wear a basic eye look. Before applying my battle make up, I usually cleanse and prime, at the moment I have been using Garnier’s toner with a cotton wool pad, once toned I use, Benefits moisturiser which provides SPF and the moisturiser you need to apply your base. Currently I’m using Garnier’s bb cream which is brilliant for giving you that fresh base for those Autumnal mornings. To stick with with this fresh look, I then apply a setting powder because I would prefer not to look matte when I will be applying such a dark lip. For this, I am using MUA’s loose powder in translucent, preventing any additional colour. Although bronzer is typically a summer product, I always use it in the Autumn because it gives the face dimension and colour which is a feature on the face that is always missing. I usually apply this onto my cheek bones and the temples. The bronzer I use is absolutely brilliant Essence’ bronzer in the shade, fair. Although I don’t class my skin as fair, I prefer a lighter shade for bronzer because I hate overall bronzed cheeks, just because it usually gives the impression that you could peel their foundation of their faces.
Since my first pay day back in August, I have become a sinner for designer make up especially designer mascaras. When it comes down to mascaras, I think you should spend a little more because its a product going on the most precious element of your face, therefore I never have regrets after I’ve purchased the mascara unless it never does what it was supposed to do. In recent weeks I have become addicted to Benefit’s They’re real mascara which claims to volumises,and lengthens the lashes creating lashes to die for. Their claims, are correct and real if you pardon the pun. After my lashes I apply an Essence triple chocolate matte eye shadow into the crease of my eye; adding definition and dimension to the eye. This is the only thing that I have been really doing in terms of eyes because I think you should choose heavy eyes and a nude lip to vice versa.
For lips I opt for Revlon’s rum raisin lipstick which creates a shiny colour. This is the centre piece of my face. I think this shade really suits olive skin and brunettes during the Autumn because it almost mimics the colour of the leaves outsides.
