Autumn Inspired Make Up

Summer has been and gone; lets face it. 

A sudden cold few days has me realising it's very nearly time to get all my jumpers and long sleeved tops back out of storage and accept the fact that it's highly unlikely there will be anymore sunshine! (Sorry, Summer lovers!) I actually love Autumn, so I'm welcoming it with open arms - no more hayfever, no more over heated greenhouse-esque apartment and no more fear of unpainted toes to put in sandals. It's a win, win situation.

Anyway, I woke up this morning with an urge to experiment with some Autumn colours in my makeup. Golds, deep reds & bronze was the plan and this is what came out...

Products Used : 
Yves Saint Lauren Teint Touche Eclat Foundation in BD40 // Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer //
Mac Omega for eyebrows & Woodwinked as eyeshadow, Coffee eyeliner, Soft & Gentle highlighter, Creme in Your Coffee lipstick // Benefit Hoola Bronzer // L'Oreal Rosewood Blush // Maybelline Falsies Mascara

I'm so head over heels for the YSL foundation; it's the perfect amount of coverage for me and gives such a luminous, dewy finish. Creme In Your Coffee is also a long time favourite and one of my most used lipsticks - ever. The L'Oreal blush is a new discovery but one I'm very happy with, it's a great autumnal shade and has lovely pigmentation for a highstreet brand - the packaging is a little 'clunky', but I can forgive that. 

I can definitely see me wearing this combination throughout the next few months!

Oh & my top is from Fat Face (£35)... If I could buy everything from there - I would!

Have you had an Autumn makeup overhaul? What have you been loving?

    1. Oh thank you so much, there were definitely some very bad pictures in this batch though hehe :)

      I would actually recommend Hoola however it is the only bronzer I own and I imagine it would be easier for a tanned person to use as it can be a little harsh. But I just dip my brush in and swirl it round in the lid for less product. Makes a great contour bronzer as it is completely matte and has true brown undertones and no orange! :) xx

    1. Thank you so much Jennie! :)... So kind. Soft & Gentle is a very lovely product (perhaps not worth ALL the hype it gets as I wouldn't say it's very finely milled) but it does go with plenty of makeup looks and so it will definitely get used xx

  7. Also a big fan of Autumn over here- it's no Winter (sucker for Christmas) but definitely better than boiling summers. You really suit that lipstick, and the entire look actually! Woodwinked is such an amazing colour, it looks so different on everybody! xx

  10. I'm sat here going through your blog, roaming through old posts like a proper creep, thinking: Man, I like this a little too much. I think you just inspired me to start my own blog, Sam :-)
    I just can't think of a pretty name for it. Anyways, you'll be hearing from me!

    Thanks for being who you are.

    xo, Niki
