During the Autumn and Winter months I usually opt for a heavier, demi-matte foundation to conceal any imperfections and even out my skin tone. Although I have been trying out my fair share of base products at the moment, the one I keep coming back to is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. With a lightweight texture that covers just about anything from scarring to redness this foundation will leave you with perfected, pore-less skin all day long.
For blusher, I usually struggle in the morning to pick only one to apply, but one that I keep reaching for is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in True Love. This warm pink matte shade adds a pop of colour to my cheeks, whilst looking natural and subtle. Although I have been into my pink hues, I can't help but reach for Nars Luster on a regular basis too. This golden peach shade looks perfect in contrast with a strong contour, making for a slight shimmer that accentuates any tan I have left.
After a quick sweep of bronzer and a double dose of highlighter, I then move onto my eyes where bold eyeliner and earthy tones are my go-to look. I have been gravitating towards the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze as a base for MAC's Handwritten Eyeshadow. Both of these work together to create a long wearing, effortless brown eye that can be smudged out to appear more smoky. Another brand that have stolen my heart recently has been H&M, so my Autumn makeup wouldn't be complete without a wash of High Impact Eyeshadow in Russet Rose and thick eye liner courtesy of the Precision Eye Marker. To finish, I curl my lashes and apply several lashings of the L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara to define and add volume.
Last up is lipstick and this is where it gets tricky. During the Autumnal months I find it increasingly difficult to pick between a red, plum or nude lip. For a budget berry lipstick, I opt for the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Couture, a rich creamy purple that looks subtle on the lip and is easy to wear on a daily basis. For a nude option, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama offering ticks all the right boxes. Bahama compliments and flatters my complexion, making for a lipstick that goes with pretty much any makeup look.
