5 Autumn Makeup Must-Haves
Goodbye coral lipstick, tinted moisturiser and bronzer because summer is sadly over. Don't be too upset, a new season = new makeup. This Autumn is all about drama - berry stained lips contrasting against pale skin and deep, vampy shades on nails. Here are a few makeup items that'll get you looking berry beautiful quicker than you can say "Pumpkin Spiced Latte Please".
Glo & Ray Mirage Mousse Eye shadow in Marron Earth* £11.00
This silky, one-wash wonder is the perfect shade for A/W. This lightweight shadow applies quite sheer but can be built up for more intensity. I didn't experience any creasing from this and found it easy to blend. Marron Earth is a gorgeous deep purple colour with a subtle hint of shimmer. See a swatch here!
Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights in Bare Light £11.99
As much as I love Autumn/Winter, the cold weather can make your skin look dull. This primer from Revlon gives you that 'lit from within' glow and works on all skintones. The shimmery pink liquid looks very natural under foundation or can be used over your base to highlight certain areas.
No 7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Loganberry £9.00
I tried out the new No7 Match Made Lipstick Service where they match a lipstick to your skintone to find your perfect shade. 'Loganberry' is a dark plumy/pink which is a little darker than I would have normally gone for. The matte formula makes this feel very autumnal. It's not too drying and glides on easily. I'd recommend trying out the free Match Made Lipstick Service from No7!
L'Oreal Color Rich L'Ombre Eyeshadow £5.49
These have to be one of the best eyeshadows I've found from the highstreet. The intense pigmentation, buttery texture and longevity make these an all round winner. I have the shade 'Lumiere' which is a rich metallic taupe that looks great washed all over the lid or just used in the crease.
No7 Nail Colour in Temptress £6.00
Dark nail varnish is all I wear on my tips at this time of year. A shade I always go back to is 'Temptress' from No7 which is the perfect gothic gloss. In some lights it appears almost black but it has a hint of purple making the colour look less flat.
