Autumn Makeup Look

October 7, 2017

Hey Everyone! Today I’m sharing with you all my favourite makeup look for autumn that I’ll wear pretty much everyday. A bold lip and sparkly eye may not be ‘everyday’ to a lot of people, but I’m not really a neutral kind of girl and this look is so quick, easy and great for days when I’m in a hurry.

The Base:

  • Before putting any makeup on my face I cleanse, tone and moisturise using The Body Shop Tea Tree range, to ensure my face is smooth, soft and completely clean.
  • I apply my Guerlain L’or primer all over my face and wait a few seconds until it feels tacky and ready for foundation.
  • Using a Spectrum B01 brush I apply Kat Von D Lock It foundation (my holy grail) and blend out and down to my neck.
  • I then conceal under my eyes and any blemishes or redness still peeking through with the Collection Lasting Perfection in the shade Fair.
  • To set my foundation and concealer in place I powder using the No.7 Translucent Perfect Light Powder and press that into my skin using a Spectrum B02 brush.
  • For my eyebrows I use the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in the shade Taupe and a Spectrum A14 brush.

Contour, blush and highlight:

  • During the autumn months I tend to use darker colours for my contour and blush. I use the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and start with the middle shade to warm up my cheeks, temple and forehead. I then go into the darkest shade and with a Spectrum A05 brush contour the cheekbones.
  • My favourite blush for autumn is Video by Urban Decay, which I am drastically running out of, I apply this to the apple of my cheeks and blend it into the contour with a Spectrum C04 brush.
  • For highlight today I used the Sleek Solstice Palette and applied that to the tip of nose and the top of my cheekbones.

The Eyes:

  • I always prime my eyes before doing anything with the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion to ensure that my makeup stays in place and doesn’t crease all day.
  • Taking the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Dark Pearl I apply that to the inner corners, working my way toward the centre of my lid and blending it out with my finger. I then create a sharp, angled line on the outer corners.
  • For mascara I use The Body Shop Super Volume and apply two coats.

The Lips:

  • For this look I use my favourite lipstick, Glastonberry by Charlotte Tilbury and apply that straight from the bullet starting in the centre of my bottom lip and working toward the edges.
  • I then use the matching Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in the colour Bad Romance and outline the edges to neaten it up.

The finished Look:

There you  have it, a super easy look for autumn! I hope you enjoyed this post, leave a comment down below telling me what you think (unless it’s mean, then keep those thoughts to yourself).
