Berry Makeup Favourites

I'm not ready for October to end, so to ease myself in I've started to use more of the berry tones in my collection to keep the Autumnal feeling alive. I love pairing a berry lip with a soft wash of gold on the lid or pair of intense plum smokey eye with a nude liquid lipstick for an evening out. Today I'm sharing with you a few of my berry makeup favourites: 

For a quick easy eye look, I always reach for one of the Charlotte Tilbury Quads, Vintage Vamp* being a new favourite of mine for this time of the year. With four shades you can create a simple smokey eye with ease and they look great from Autumn right through til the Christmas party. If I'm not after working with more than one shade, there's a couple of one sweep wonders that I love to use too. The Hourglass Blaze Scattered Eyeshadow* and Colourpop Muse are two that can be applied in one sweep to have a slight wash of colour or a few sweeps to build the intensity up. 

I feel like it's super easy to go overboard on applying blusher especially when it's a dark shade, so I like to keep my berry blushers muted in tone. The Hourglass Euphoric Fusion Strobe Lighting Blusher* is great at it adds just the right amount of colour to the cheeks and makes the skin glow too. If I'm after something even more natural, but can pack a punch if needs be, it's the Glossier Haze Cloud Paint that I reach for as it's got a lightweight, cream formula that can be blended out or built up. 

It'll come as no surprise that lips are my favourite way to wear a berry shade, but I thought I'd add in a couple of my favourite red hues too. For a very subtle tint, I've been using the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector* in Plum Shimmer for years now and it's great if you want to ease yourself in to the berry life. For a more intense look, it's the Pixi Berry Boost MatteLast Liquid Lip* I'm liking to use at the moment as I've mentioned in previous blog posts and for a budget option, I go for the NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip Cream

For a red lip, I've found a few new picks this year and Charlotte Tilbury are killing it again. The Queen* and Legendary Queen* are two to check out and they have you covered whether you're a fan of a true or darker red hue.
