Aside from the cooling temperature one thing I love about autumn is the beauty trendsa making it my second favourite season after Spring. I also love sharing these beauty edits where I talk about and recommend some of my favourite products that are appropriate for the season. Whether you’re simply feeling nosy or you’re actively looking for new products this season, here’s what I’ll be using…
MUA Heaven and Earth Palette:
For a budget palette filled with warm toned coppery neutrals I’m all about the Heaven and Earth Palette by MUA. This is a palette I’d recommend to everyone from eyeshadow nebies to seasoned pros. Not only are the eyeshadows excellent quality but this palette is only £4.00 and is a true staple in my autumn makeup bag.
Illamasqua Vintage Metallix in Courtier:
Cream eyeshadow lovers may have come across the Illamasqua Vintage Metallix, a stunning creamy formula that is both comfortable and easy to work with. There’s plenty of autumn shades to choose from including Bibelot (a khaki green), Embellish (a chocolate brown), Galaxy (a vibrant gold) or Courtier (a nude beige) which I find great for everyday wear.
Kiko Intense Colour Longlasting Eyeliner in 03 Pearly Bronze:
This season I forecast cloudy skies with a sweep of eyeliner and I have a neutral and a bright option depending on your makeup preferences. For the neutral lovers out there I highly recommend the Kiko Intense Colour Longlasting Eyeliner in 03 Pearly Bronze. The formula is second to none (and a dupe for Urban Decay) with a wide variety of shades available. This eyeliner will be getting a lot of love from me over the next few months.
Urban Decay Naked Palette:
I truly encourage all Urban Decay Naked Palette hoarders to dig their original Naked palette out from their stash. This is filled with a variety of autumn appropriate shades from golds, deep coppers and even some smokey silvers should that take your fancy.
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Psychadelic Sister:
If you can’t quite let go of the summer brights (and I hear you) then may I point you towards the Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Psychadelic Sister? Not only is this bang on trend with the deep purple shade but the metallic finish and bold colour will help to lift your spirits whilst keeping you fashion forward.
Benefit Rockateur Blusher:
If you have the pennies available to stretch to a high end blusher then the one I would point you towards is none other than Benefit’s Rockateur. There’s a whole host of rose gold shades out there for you to choose from but this is my favourite by far of the ones that I own. This is shimmery and glowy without the glitter and it’s great for the colder days that are soon to come.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blusher in Gorgeous Berries:
If rose gold and shimmer aren’t words firmly embedded in your vocabulary then I’d also opt for a deep pink blusher, just be aware that deeper shades don’t have to equate to clown cheeks.
Topshop Glow in Polished:
I always go back to this gold cream highlighter as it’s easy to work with, versatile and has the most beautiful pearlescent finish. I like to apply this underneath my foundation for a subtle glow but this can be used over foundation just as effectively. Also suitable for pale girls.
2true 8hr Power Lip Colour in Angeline:
Usually I go for deep purple lips in autumn but this year I’m feeling deep pink tones instead. One shade that is always a staple though is of course a classic red and this formula by 2true is excellent. This is a liquid lipstick that will not budge once dry and has excellent staying power. Plus it’s super budget friendly.
MAC Lipstick in Rebel:
I have the feeling that plenty of beauty addicts across the globe will be whipping this shade out of their stash and for good reason of course. This lipstick is the epitome of autumn and is the one product that I associate with autumn every year. This is pricey but it’s a beautiful shade.
Topshop Lips in Wicked:
If MAC is a little out of your price range then I would recommend this shade by Topshop. Although they look different in the photo don’t be fooled as they are almost the exact same shade, I consider this a brilliant dupe for Rebel and the formula is a little more hydrating and creamy too.
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Watermelon:
I love this inky green as a twist on the standard black and purple nails of autumn. This formula is incredibly glossy and budget friendly and the colour is lovely, this reminds me of darkening leaves and pine trees.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Viridian:
For a transitional metallic shade then I’d highly recommend Viridian by Illamasqua, this is a blackened turquoise with a metallic finish, it’s extremely sophisticated and completely unique.
N07 Nail Polish in Damson Dream:
A plummy red is a must for every lady (and gentleman should he wish it) this season and No7 offer a beautiful choice with Damson Dream. This is a rich and truly decadent burgundy with a metallic finish – a great high street option.
Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel in Black Star:
I love this as a unique twist on black nails. Although the name may suggest back glitteriness do not be fooled. This is actually a beautiful gunmetal grey with minute silver shimmer that reminds me of liquid metal. Sadly this has been discontinued but you may be able to source it online.
