Autumn Transitional Makeup

Autumn is, without a doubt, one of- if not my favourite- season. Yes, I know I say that every time, but the cold, crisp weather, jumpers and being able to snuggle under several layers of blankets just makes me very excited. Saying this, we're not quite in Autumn yet as it officially starts on the 22nd, but I have been prepping and today I am sharing with you my top transitional picks. 

Aside from upping the highlighter and dewiness of my base, I will actually keep my foundation the same from Summer, mixing in my usual foundation with a liquid highlighter and a drop of oil onto a Beauty Blender*. Saying this, I have started to switch up my usual moisturiser in favour of the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream*, a lightweight offering that treats my lacklustre skin by giving it an instant boost of hydration. 

On my eyes, I have been reaching for copper and shimmery tones for the Autumn season. The Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Rigel, a gorgeous rose gold that can be used all over the lid, in the inner corners, or can be used wet to create a intense eye look. 

I make no bones about the fact that blusher has never been the element of my makeup routine that I get excited about, but a new addition has changed all of that. The Nars Dual Intensity Blush in Fervor is a duo of blushers which can be used wet or dry depending on how much colour pay off you want. For me, I like to use this dry as the formula is incredibly soft and velvety on the skin. Although when swirled together they create an easy-to wear medium pink shade, I actually prefer to use the darker shade at the back of the cheeks and the light hue on the apples of my cheeks to create a natural look that compliments my contour. 

The biggest switch up to my makeup routine is lipstick as I stop using as many light, coral shades and instead opt for the deeper berry and plum tones. The NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip, a deep burgundy hue is my go-to at the moment especially when worn with glowy, natural looking skin. 

Although I am looking forward to Autumnal shades, I'm not quite ready to incorporate them onto my nails just yet. The Tanya Burr Soft Pyjamas Matte Nail Vanish is the perfect muted nude hue and looks dreamy paired with Essie Tassel Shaker.

What are your transitional makeup picks?
