Autumn is my favourite time of year regarding makeup, you can wear a smoky eye during the day and it’s deemed socially acceptable, the dark lipsticks are being brought out, golds and burgundies are making a comeback and being pale is NORMAL (YAY FOR ME!). However, I feel like it’s very easy to end up sticking to the SAME makeup routine all year round, I’m totally guilty of doing this, I mean, if you find a routine you usually stick to it, right? BUT, I thought I would share a couple of products that I think can spice are your makeup to come a bit more autumnal, without having to completely change your makeup routine!
BOLD BROWS N LUSH LASHES
One super simple way to make your makeup look more autumnal, without buying ANY new products, is just to go BOLDER. Having thicker eyebrows has been such a trend in the Autumn/Winter time and I think they look amazing. Just filling in your eyebrows a lil’ more makes all the difference and really frames your face! My go-to brow product is the Maybelline Brow Satin, it has a penicl and powder to make your eyebrows look SO GOOD! Also, have more volumious lashes is bang on trend in autumn, I have recently got my hands on the Benefit They’re Real! Mascara and it’s bloomin’ fab! However, just adding a few extra coats of your current mascara can make all the difference!
I think I can safely say that I am a lil’ addicted to eyeshadow palettes, and this season doesn’t make it any better! In the Summer, I love to go more natural on the eyes, but when Autumn comes around, I love to go alllll out! I’ve recently picked up the MUA Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Burning Embers’– I mean, even the name screams autumn! It’s full of both matte and shimmer shades of neutrals, browns and burgundies- everything an autumn palette needs! Oh, and did I mention it’s bloody EIGHT POUNDS, I KNOW, BARGAIN! If I’m not using this, I opt for the Naked 3 Palette, the Morphe 35T palette or my fave Blank Canvas Cosmentics Palette (here’s a review HERE!). They all range in quality and price, but switching up your eyeshadow is one of the best ways to change up your look for the season!
IT’S ALLL ABOUT THAT AUTUMN LIP
Ahhh, the autumn lip. As soon as the season hits, all I see is everyone rocking the dark lip whether it’s red, purple or even black- it looks AMAZE! I love all the autumn shades, and the fact now we can all go out with our dark lips without looking like a total goth- cause everyone else is doing it too! However, personally, dark lips don’t suit me amazingly (UGH!), so, I like to opt for slightly darker nudes or go for a brown-toned pink, this is great as it’s more for ‘everyday’, and perfect for those who feel like a dark lip is a lil’ out of their comfort zone.
I hope you’ve enjoyed finding out how I’m spicing up my makeup this season. I think it’s so fun just to do something a little different each season to embrace it! Let me know what you love doing with your makeup this season!
