*This is part of a series of guest posts, completely unique to this week.*
There is nothing I love more than when we reach the end of summer and those crisp autumn days come in to play. Autumn is my absolute favourite season; there is something about the colours the layers and the dark nights that just give it a really cosy feel. Along with the woolly hats, cosy jumpers and scarves – I also love the change in makeup, especially the colours so I thought id share with you a few of my Autumnal Make Up picks!
I haven’t selected any specific products for my foundation or concealer because I switch it up constantly depending on my skin needs and how it’s behaving but I do like to bring out my Nars Blush in Sin every Autumn because to me, it’s the perfect autumnal shade – it’s a purple toned pink, but it’s gorgeous and it gives the cheeks that winter flush.
My Mac Eyeshadow Quad is also a failsafe product for me, I used this all year round but I customised it to have the perfect combination of shades (Naked Lunch, Patina, Satin Taupe and Mystery) so it never lets me down regardless of whether I want something subtle or bold. I also love the Catrice Absolute Eye Colour in I Wear Plum Glasses at Night for autumn time and I cannot wait to start wearing it again, it’s a gorgeous matte grey toned brown with a hint of purple to it – it makes a really great crease colour.
I’ve decided to include the Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette – this isn’t particular autumn themed but I have been wearing it nonstop since I got it and I think highlighter is an all year round essential.
Now onto my favourite part – the lip products. I’m a massive fan of the deep mauve toned lips and the bold reds, burgundy’s and plum lips which are all perfect for autumn. So my lip product picks for this season are; Essence Velvet Stick Lip Pencil in Peony: a gorgeous deep mauve toned pink that is perfect for everyday wear, Mac Mehr Lipstick: a beautiful 90s style brown toned nude, Mac Plumful Lipstick: one of my absolute favourite wearable plum lipstick, perfect for both every day and evening and last of all Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry: a beautiful and bold dark, plummy toned red.
So those are my Autumnal Make up Picks! I’m so excited for the dark nights and Halloween!
What products do you love to wear during autumn?
