Let’s face it this is the best time of year for make up isn’t it. I like Spring and all the corals and the golden goddess looks but gold looks so much better with a berry lip… not to mention it’s cooler so the make up doesn’t slide off your face by midday. You can pop on just a little more contour, matte foundation and don’t have to worry about matching your foundation to your fake tanned neck. It’s all about being pale and embracing layers… and eating as much food as possible to get festively plump haha.
So here are my top picks for autumn make up..
MAC Studio Fix Fluid – this is a full coverage foundation and doesn’t budge. I have this in 2 shades as I mix them if I’m not as pale as I thought. I like my Bourjois healthy mix but MAC just keeps pulling me back.
NARS Laguna Bronzer, as mentioned before this is my favourite bronzer ever, EVER! I use the Sleek face form kit for day to day for work but when I’m popping out with my boys for the day or for a meal this bronzer gets used. It’s just perfect! I am so glad my 30th birthday is soon… as I will be needing a new one of these by then.
Urban Decay Naked Palette – I had all 3 of the palettes but sold 2 and 3 as I only ever use this palette. It’s perfect, can create so many eye looks. Half Baked is my favourite and I have the individual one of it, as well as Sin and Naked. I love half baked in Autumn as it’s a perfect lid shade and lower lash line, bit of Buck through the crease and I’m ready to go.
I only ever usually wear lip balm every other month of the year but this is the time of year I like to wear a bit more on my lips and my favourite ever lipstick is MAC Rebel, I am a wimp when he comes to lipstick but I pat this on and it gives such a nice berry shade. Can also be built up to quite a dark colour!
Benefit Rocketeur Blusher, I love the Benefit Coralista and I think it’s the only reason I like Spring and Summer if I’m honest but as soon as it starts to get chillier Rocketuer comes out to play, it’s a perfect aumtunal shade, smells nice and gives a nice subtle highlight too.
NARS Black Eyeliner, I’m not usually one for eyeliner but in the colder months I tend to pop some eyeliner in my upper and lower water line. I think it just pulls the whole make up look together and give the lashes a fuller look.
