Beauty ¦ Autumnal tones


So this lot of products somehow turned out a lot bigger then I first anticipated. As you may be able to tell from the image above I love autumnal colours. So I've thrown together a bunch of my favourite autumn shades to show you today.


Left to Right - Bourjois beige - Mac Brick o la - Rimmel 107

So first off lets start with lipsticks, I thought first off I'd throw in a nude shade. Bourjois Beige shooting is a super mauve-y nude therefore I think it's perfect for autumn. Next up we have a lipstick that I really don't think gets as much hype as it should. Mac Brick O la is a gorgeous terracotta red shade which is perfect if you don't quite want to wear a bright red shade but want to wear something more than a nude. A firm blogger favourite is Rimmel 107 which is one of my all time favourite shades for the autumn months, I also love the fact that it's a matte but it's not drying.

Next up is a drugstore gem which sadly isn't available in the UK, Catrice Made to stay smoothing lip polish in Jen and berry's is the perfect just bitten berry shade. At first it's super glossy but once you've been wearing it a while it leaves behind a stain. Essence on the catwalk is a similar shade to Brick O la however it's a little sheerer and it's a little pinker. Another massive blogger favourite is Mac rebel it's a beautiful deep berry shade which looks completely different on every skin tone. On me it's a little more pink whereas on others it comes across much more purple. Finally for lipsticks I have Rimmel Glam plum Fulham, this is the glossy slightly pinker version of rebel. I find it a little bit of a pain to wear due to how glossy it is however I do still really love it and I still reach for it regularly.

Left to right - MUA No.25 - Revlon Plum - Maybelline Metallic pomegranate

Next up we have eyeshadows I picked out a couple of singles and my all time favourite autumn palette. So starting off with singles First off we have this gorgeous cranberry shade, MUA No.25 this looks beautiful through the crease of a silvery pinky shade. Then we have Revlon Plum which is a stunning as the name may suggest plum shade. This is from the colourstay shadow links range which I wasn't the biggest fan of the shimmery shades but the matte ones are lovely. Finally it wouldn't be a autumn makeup post without me including the Maybelline colour tattoo in metallic pomegranate. This is a mix of brown and cranberry with gold shimmer and it looks amazing smoked out all over the lid for a autumn smokey eye.

As for the palette Sleek Vintage romance is my all time favourite palette for this time of year, all the shades are absolutely stunning. A mix of golds, berry's and purple with a few staple shades you can create numerous looks. All the shadows are incredibly pigmented and blendable and I seriously recommend you give it a go.

The final category is blushes, I absolutely love sleeks blushes and the blush by three in Pink lemonade is beautiful. I've mostly been reaching for the middle cream blush which is a lovely muted rosy shade which is really natural on the face. I also really love the more orangey shade or this time of year as it reminds me of the colour of autumn leaves. Finally for this post I picked out Maxfactor cream puff blush in gorgeous berries, I picked this up when these were first released however I didn't reach for it at all as I felt the berry shade just didn't work in the summer.
