Moving into Autumn...

September 18, 2014

What with autumn pretty much on the horizon it has me thinking about the makeup changes i'll be making in the coming months, as we all know everything gets a little more darker and duller, the bright colours and pretty pastels get put away and the vampy tones come out to play.
Starting with the lips as this in an obvious one for me and i'm sure most of you, but my darker plum shades get most of their loving during the autumun/winter months. The first lipstick i'll be trying to get more wear out of this autumn/winter is the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine '18' (£24), which I have no idea why I haven't used as much as I should have because its the perfect colour for me during the colder months and it is not mattifying at all. The next lipstick is a given and that is the MAC 'Rebel' Lipstick (£15.50), seeing as I wore this to death last winter i'm sure it will be getting it's wear again this season. 

Onto the eyes, and it seems during the winter I just love to wear a bit of colour of my lids as I keep everything quite minimal during spring/summer. For a quick dab of colour I always opt for the Makeup Forever Aqua Shadow. I'm not entirely sure what shade this is, possibly '20E' but its the perfect bronzey brown and the formula of this stuff is ideal as it does not budge. If i've got a bit more time on my hands then the Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 Palette* (£4) is what i'd opt for instead. This palette has every shade i'd ever want during the autumn/winter months as I stick to my golds, bronzes and browns mainly, so this palette is just perfect. 

Last but not least let's talk about blush, and my most loved blush of all time. The Nars 'Luster' Blush (£21.50), which looks a lot darker than it actually is, but this blush I always opt for during the autumn/winter months. I seem to ditch the pinky tones and opt for more bronzier tones but this blush is the perfect mid point between a blush and a bronzer for me, and I can see me getting a lot more wear out of this in the coming months. 

What aspects of your makeup will you be changing as the seasons switch?

  1. Great selection for autumn! Is the eyeshadow palette good, though? I've been a bit negative for some reason ..

  2. I really want to try out mac Rebel this post is making me more excited for autumn make up !

  3. I love that I have found someone else who chooses darker blush shades during the winter as well! I find most bbloggers out there go for lighter pink tones during the winter, but I prefer a darker blush on my cheeks during the cooler months. Really want to try out Mac Rebel!

  4. Love the lipsticks! I just recently ventured into the lipstick jungle from always playing it safe with a clear lipgloss, so I'm looking forward to playing around with berry shades this autumn.

  5. I switch up my lipsticks too, and also add a bit more highlight to keep my skin looking healthy through the colder months :)

  6. The pigmentation is really good for a palette that only costs £4! Obviously not as good as the Naked palettes but still really good! x

  7. Yea i think it's great for the price. The shadows are super pigmented, a lot more so than the fake Naked palettes that are knocking around x

  8. I think I'm going to give it a go. Thank you! Jade x
