Its darker in the mornings and I’m rummaging around my wardrobe for scarfs.

I really fancy anything pumpkin flavoured and burgundy is my new favourite colour. It’s officially Autumn. Although I hate the temperature drop, I love Autumn trends and make-up. I am done with no make-up, make-up looks, gold eyeshadow and glossy lips and I am ready for full coverage foundations a bold statement lip and lashes.

Hourglass Vanish stick foundation is my go to foundation for more coverage. It leaves the skin completely flawless but doesn’t look or feel heavy and has a nice natural skin like finish. Not too matte, not too dewy. I’ve never been a fan of a matte complexion but in the colder months I do like something a bit fuller and more velvet like than the dewy tinted moisturisers I tend to wear in summer.  The best way to apply this foundation is on hydrated skin with a buffing brush, to get the product to blend easily I find warming it up first on the back of my hand the best trick!

To finish of an Autumnal complexion, you can’t go wrong with a stronger blush. I will never go out without bronzer but keeping the bronzer subtle and adding more of a pop to the cheeks, I think looks really flattering when its cold outside and gives your skin a fresh look like you’ve been out in the chilly air. Elf blusher pallets have really great plum berry tones in them which will tie in nicely with a berry lip.

All year round I wear Charlotte Tilbury’s dolce vita pallet. It’s fabulous in summer with the warm bronzy shades but I also think the warm tones work nicely with the colours I use in my make-up for Autumn. To take this pallete from summer to autumn I use the rich rusty enhance shade all over my lid and darken it with the smoke shade. To complete an autumn eye look I love to load up the mascara and usually apply false lashes. I’ve been loving Lily lolo mascara recently its formula is nice and dry making it easy to build and doesn’t weigh your eyelashes down.

Finally a go to Autumn makeup look is not complete without a statement lip. I love the confidence a bold lip gives me. My makeup can be so plain but when I have a strong lipstick on I feel more sassy and fabulous. I have had the 100% pure semi matte lipstick in blood orange for a while now, Its quite a bright colour but definitely deeper than your classic reds. The lipstick isn’t drying and is not too matte (doesn’t settle into the creases of your lips) but stays on really well. I really want to purchase more shades from this collection. Iv been thinking about getting the shade sandstone.

I hope everyone is enjoying pulling out their cosy jumpers and berry lipsticks as much as I am.
