Autumn is my favourite time to experiment with my makeup, switching out tinted moisturisers for more heavy duty bases, adding a healthy dose of highlighter to my routine and playing around with different eyeshadow looks. Here are a handful of my new season products I've been trying out.
I always enjoy finding a new high street base that I like and the Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Makeup Foundation had me at 'photo ready' as it sounded right up my street. Despite offering a medium to full coverage base, this still feels lightweight on the skin and the buildable finish can be blended out or built up. It gives just the right amount of natural glow, something that I need more at this time of the year when my skin is looking a little lacklustre.
I then go in with the bareMinerals BareSkin Stay-In-Place Liquid Concealer which I'm obsessed with at the moment because the formula is so different to what I usually go for when it comes to concealers. It's serum based which makes it extremely nourishing and it can be blended into the skin with ease. Although I tend to use it in conjunction with a natural looking foundation, it can be used on it's own. If your complexion is really temperamental and dehydrated this Autumn, then I'd definitely recommend giving this a go.
I'd never heard of LaRoc as a brand before, but I've been trying out their 15 Colour Autumn Eyeshadow Palette which I feel is very aptly named for the new season. At £3.99 it really is a steal if you're looking for new ways to experiment with your makeup as it won't break the bank.
Everyone knows by now that I do love a berry or dark lip in the Autumn, but nothing beats a nude offering on a daily basis. The L'Oreal Infalliable Babe In Lip Matte Paint has a whipped texture with a velvet finish that sits more comfortably on the lips than a traditional liquid lipstick, but lasts longer than your usual lip colour.
Last up we have a perfume pick in the form of the Giorgio Armani Si Fiori Perfume which is a new addition to their classic and beloved Si range. Described as the perfume version of 'no makeup', this lightweight, floral fragrance is great for everyday wear and will sit beautifully in your favourite cosy layers of Autumn.
