Go To Autumn Make Up Products

Hi everyone! Since the seasons are changing and everyone (including me) is jumping on the Autumn bandwagon I thought I'd post some of the go to make up products I like to use in Autumn. I'm done with corals and peaches for now and I'm moving on to the lovely warm browns and berry colours.

I'll start with the eyes first, I've used two palettes because they have the most gorgeous Autumn shades in them.

- Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This is the first image and to me it actually screams Autumn, I pictured those colours as they are the most fall appropriate from the palette in my opinion, I don't have flash on but one of the shades which is the 2nd in on the middle row is my all time favourite gold eyeshadow and the picture really doesn't do it justice but it is amazing! It's called Marzipan if you are wondering, I don't know why but those shadows all pictured next to each other remind me of a scarf you would wear in Autumn, weird I know. It is definitely my go to palette for this season, I just love it!

- Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture palette. I pictured these shadows from this palette, particularly Fudge and Morocco as they are gorgeous warm shades that look so nice at this time of year. Also the quality is amazing, they are so pigmented and are so easy to apply.

Berry lips are definitely the trend in Autumn and I've got two that I really like

- MAC Craving. This is an Amplified finish and it is amazing! It's described as a 'burst of plum' and I think it is great for people like me who aren't daring enough for a really dark lip, it is a dark shade but not too full on and very wearable. 

- Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Berry. This one is definitely for when you are feeling more adventurous, it is a lot more full on that the MAC lipstick but so pigmented and the nicest deep berry colour. The applicator isn't my favourite and I would recommend using a lip brush to apply this since it is a bold colour but it is so long wearing and surprisingly not drying considering it is a matte finish.

- Benefit's Benetint. I love the colour of this especially for this season, it is a nice plum colour and I think it gives a nice flush to your cheeks but it is fairly sheer so it doesn't look too crazy once applied. I also love this for when I'm feeling lazy as it is so quick and easy to apply.

- Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 07 Plum. Another plum colour I know but I think they are so gorgeous at this time of year, I love this cream blush because it is so affordable and a very subtle plum shade. Also you get so much product and a little really does go a long way so very good value for money.

- Benefit Watt's Up. I know I've only been raving about the Mary Lou Manizer recently but for some reason Watt's Up definitely fits Autumn better for me. Gold highlighters are my favourite and this gives a really lovely golden glow but it works for Autumn as well as Summer. Application is a bit more awkward because I think applying it from the stick gives you a bit of a stripe so I prefer dabbing it on my finger first.

It's so funny how as soon as they seasons change so does your taste in make up products, but it keeps things fresh and stops it getting boring I suppose. Let me know in the comments your favourite Autumn make up products!
