I literally have a list of different Autumn makeup looks that I want to share with you, this one being my favourite. Autumn is the best time of year in my opinion, and this is one of my all time favourite makeup looks ever.. it’s the lipstick! Due to the bold lip, I like to keep everything else quite mellow.. I have paired this with ‘bronzed’ skin. Well, as bronzed as you can be when you are whiter than a ghost, and really simple eyes.
Of course, I have been using this foundation non-stop recently so it was only right that I started with my Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation.
As I was using the same foundation as I have been for weeks, I wanted to dig deep into my concealer draw and find something that I haven’t really used before. I stumbled across the Essence Stay All Day Concealer which is actually very comparable to the Lasting Perfection by Collection. This one is has a little less coverage, but it’s a really nice concealer nonetheless, especially for the price!
I then set my under eye area with my Collection Ivory Pressed Powder for a little bit of brightness.
For my cheeks I didn’t want any blush at all, as the lips were the show stopper here. I started by using my Rimmel Sun Shimmer Light Matte Bronzing Compact which by the way, is so amazing for us pale people! It gives you that bronze effect without the orange dusting, lovely! I also applied some of this into the crease of my eye for a natural shadow to add some depth into my socket.
I obviously wanted a good contour today, so I used my Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadow Mocha Love to carve out my cheekbones. I then finished with a dusting of my Highlight Shade – Maybelline Master Sculpt.. and applied that pretty much everywhere. As always… I even applied a large amount to the inner corner of my eye. I then went over it with a matte white eye shadow.
After I applied my bronzer and highlight to my eyes, I decided they needed a little something else. So in went my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Eyeliner (nude) on my lower waterline. I then took my Rimmel Black Eyeliner on my top water line to make my lashes look fuller. To also make my eyes water like a bi&*h.. sigh.
For thy brows, I have been using my newest combo. The Soap & Glory Brow Archery and the Maybelline Master Sculpt.
I just want to take a moment to talk about this mascara, as I really have been loving it over the last few weeks and I have never heard anyone talk about it. The Max Factor Calorie 2000 Mascara is definitely my best friend right now. It holds a good curl, gives me volume and length and it is just really nice and lightweight to wear. I would like to try some new mascaras, and I still can’t believe I don’t own any of the Maybelline ones so if you guys have any recommendations please throw them my way! I will be forever thankful.
Finally, for my lips. If you have read my latest post on my Autumn Beauty Wishlist you may have seen me talk about how much I would love the CT Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry. This lipstick looks very similar to me, but it has much more of a red undertone, where as the CT lipstick looks more purple/plum toned. Either way, the L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick – Mon Jules 430 is the only shade I will wear in the Autumn time! I mean c’mon!? How pretty!
