The Autumn Edit.

As we are heading into October and Autumn is well underway, I thought I would give you a rundown of all my favourite ways to update my makeup bag for the new season.

Foundation:
Summer and Spring is all about achieving skin that is dewy and glowy, whereas in the Winter for me, it's time to bring out the matte foundation. I picked up Rimmel Match Perfection | SPF 18 last Autumn and I love it. It is matte without being cakey, it still looks really natural. 

Blush:
In Summer the only blush I wear is one with a cream formula. I feel they look the best and last the longest during the warmer months. However during A/W I revert back to my much loved powder blushers, particularly this one from MAC in the shade Stay Pretty. It is part of the Pro Longwear blush and is described as a 'Light, Bright Blue Pink' which it definitely is. I only apply the tiniest amount of this to the apple of my cheeks, just to give me a hint of colour.

Eyes:
During A/W I go a little more daring with my eyes, tending to use my Mac Autumn palette, that I put together. They are all coppery, red and purple shades. Perfect for the winter months. I have a full post on the palette and all it's shades here.

Lips:
My favourite way to update my makeup during A/W is definitely the products I put on my lips. I would wear berry and red lips all year if I could. I feel like I suit dark shades quite well, as I have dark hair and a pale complexion. My favourite at the minute is Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Raplumsel. It's a gorgeous glossy, berry colour. Other shades quite similar is the Revlon Lip Butters in Raspberry Pie and Lollipop. Both gorgeous berry shades, whereas Lollipop is a little more pink.
My all time favourite lip product for Autumn and Winter is Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Glam Plum Fulham. Which is a very deep plum shade.
Red lips is one of my favourite lip looks, and a recent purchase that has fast become my go to red lip product is Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper, a gorgeous matte red. It's so easy to apply and feels really nourishing on the lips, even though it is seriously matte, it isn't cakey at all. I'm definitely going to be picking up more shades from the range.
