Building Your Autumn Makeup Collection

Transitioning Into Autumn

Autumn is by far my favourite season, not only because it means I can now have unlimited Pumpkin Spice Latte's, wear fluffy bed socks all day and plaid everything but because Autumn beauty products are my absolute favourite. During summer I'm all about the natural glow, bright/pastel shades and coral/pink lips, Autumn I love matte skin, flushed cheeks and bold berry lips. Here's how you can build your Autumn makeup collection.

I like to wear a fuller coverage foundation and have found the new Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation* provides excellent coverage as well as flawless looking skin and longevity. I also like to powder my base in the colder months, but only lightly. I use the Givenchy Prisme Visage* in the shade Satin Ivoire as it gives me that soft matte finish that isn't too heavy and the white powder is a wonderful under eye highlight. 

For soft flushed cheeks, MAC's Breezy is one of my all time favourite shades. Another shade is Sorbet Grenadine which is in the form of the new Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil* a lovely subtle pinky/red tone. It's really easy to blend and leaves a soft subtle flush of colour.

I find that Autumn and Winter are great seasons to experiment with some darker, vampy colours. The new Maybelline The Rock Nudes palette is a great choice if you want to give a day time smokey eye a try. The colours are beautiful and so pigmented. 

For lips I always tend to wear dark berry shades, reds and deep plums, all look striking on fair skin tones as well. A staple berry shade is Rebel by MAC paired with Currant lip liner, also by MAC. This combination has been worn for about three years now, I always pull it back out. If you're a fan of the redder shades, Charlotte Tilbury's Amazing Grace is just stunning, paired with her Lip Cheat Lip liner in Crazy in Love you have a long lasting creamy duo. 

How are you building your Autumn makeup collection this year?
