Makeup Tones For Autumn

It's officially Autumn and my favourite season has started. The colder weather and ever changing hues are inspiring my current makeup bag and I've decided to switch out some of my favourite shades in favour of berry, neutral and warm tones. I want to give you the low down of my current go-to's and top picks going into Autumn. 

Berries + Reds | When I think of a berry lipstick, my mind always wanders to Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry, but it's actually NYX Soft Matte Copenhagen that is my favourite. Darker shades tend to be a little temperamental on me as they tend to fade oddly, sit uncomfortably and crack, but not the NYX offering. It's long lasting, has an opaque hue and is one I'll continue to repurchase. 

A new addition to my makeup bag is the Hourglass Scattered Eyes Blaze Eyeshadow* which is a powder formula that can be applied with your fingers for a soft wash of colour or packed on with a brush for a more intense look. It's just the most gorgeous shade and can be worked into a smokey eye or used on it's own for an easy one sweep wonder look. 

For a red lipstick, I actually go with the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Queen* as it's a darker red that compliments my skin tone perfectly and goes with a natural makeup look when I'm off out somewhere special or I simply want to spruce up a plain outfit. 

Neutrals + Nudes | The Nudestix Intense Matte Purity Lip Pencil* is honestly one of the best nude lip products I've tried. It's so easy to make my lips look fuller and more plump, but the nude shade is still fitting with this season. 

Secondly, is the Hourglass Euphoric Fusion Blusher* which I always bring out at this time of the year. Despite it being on the berry side, it's still very much neutral and can be worn with a variety of makeup looks without running the risk of the shades clashing. 

Pop of Colour | Although I would consider Nars Orgasm* to be very fitting for the Spring months at first glance, I've been loving it on a natural looking base as it adds a pop of colour. It's a pink hue that sits more on the natural side and can be blended out as much as you'd like to look like you've just stepped out into the crisp, Autumn air. 

What are your favourite Autumn makeup shades?
