August 2020 New Beauty Releases for Autumn

Despite being the middle of summer, and in the middle of an unbearable heatwave, the upcoming August 2020 beauty releases just scream autumn to me! With dark, moody colour schemes and berry tones making their way back into the makeup world, it gets me all kinds of excited knowing that autumn really is just around the corner.

Here are the August 2020 beauty releases that I’m dying to get my hands on.

1. Sigma Beauty Untamed Palette

The Sigma Beauty Untamed Palette is the palette that I want to add to my collection the most. It is STUNNING! The colour scheme is everything I want and more for the autumn months. I own both the Enchanted palette and the Cor De Rosa palette and they’re such amazing quality. Sigma is very quickly becoming my favourite brand for eyeshadow and I am in desperate need of the Untamed palette. It reminds me a little of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette, which was my all-time favourite palette for autumn, but, there’s enough difference for me to justify this purchase haha.

2. Hourglass At Night Ambient Lighting Blush

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes are truly beautiful and the upcoming At Night blush is no exception. A dark, brick red with a hint of glow that we all know and love from the Ambient Lighting range, this blush will be perfect for creating vampy looks with.

3. Fenty Beauty Money and Wine Snap Shadows

The Fenty Beauty Money and Wine Snap Shadows immediately caught my eye the second I saw them. They’re both super pretty palettes with a beautiful colour story that will be amazing for the autumn months. Money has 6 green-toned shades that are just stunning and Wine has 6 berry tone shades that I’m obsessed with. Both have a mix of shimmer and mattes and it seems very compact so it’s going to be a perfect on-the-go type of palette.

4. Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in UnderDawg

Fenty are also releasing a new shade for their Stunna Lip Paint range called UnderDawg which is an absolutely gorgeous deep burgundy shade. Again, this shade is perfect for creating dark, vampy looks and will go so well with the Wine palette. It is a limited edition shade though so it’s something to snap up quick!

5. Pat Mcgrath Mthrshp Rose Decadance Eye Shadow Palette

Excuse me would you just look at those berry tones?! Pat Mcgrath has done it again and created this simply stunning eyeshadow palette that would look so pretty for autumn. There are 6 shades in total ranging from matte to metallic that all look amazing. The swatches I’ve seen of this palette are just completely out of this world. I’ve never owned a Pat Mcgrath palette but I’ve seriously got my eye on this one!
