Easy Autumn Make-Up Updates

Monday, October 05, 2015

I really don’t wear a lot of make-up, and when I do it’s pretty much always the same thing all year round, however I’ve decided to throw together a post about how I’m going to turn my make up from simple summer to simple autumn.

Change up the lip colour

In the summer I like to wear a lip colour that is a pale pink or “your lips but better” because I think that summer make up should be easy and almost unnoticeable. And whilst this can carry over in the autumn quite easily a simple way of making your look more seasonal  by wearing a wine, brown or plum lip. I love the Revlon ColourBurst Balms coming in three types Stain, Matt and Lacquer, and I think they are really easy to wear. I've also recently invested in a Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rich Raisin Frost as my go-to daily lip color for the autumn.

Define the eyes

During the summer with the heat and the lightness I do not wear any dark eyeliner, however when we get to the autumn I am more willing to wear eyeliner both on my tight-line and the occasional cat eye flick if I’m feeling a bit more daring. I keep the same eye shadow colour, mostly terracotta and metallic such as gold, bronze and rose gold. I really like the Bourjois Eyeshadow Pencils in rose gold and gold, both of which are such flattering colours for all skin tones and eye colours.

Mattify the skin

In the summer I get lazy and I cannot be bothered to fight the glowy, dewy look and so I use a bb cream with either none or very little powder however once we get to the colder months I am more willing to fight the shine that can come from moving between the cold of outside and the warmth of buildings and transport.

(and also!) Add more moisture

Whilst this is not a make-up tip but rather a skin care one I feel a bit cheeky including it, but I’m going to anyway because I think it’s so important. I have oily skin and I get a lot of spots, but the most important thing for changing from summer to autumn is to moisturise your skin really well using a creamy oil-free moisturiser during the day and if you’re feeling brave your normal night cream and a facial oil at night. Your makeup will not sit nicely on your skin if you don’t moisture and it will help even if you have acne, promise!

Use some glitter! 

In the summer, I use a liquid highlighter to define the tops of my cheekbones, but in the autumn, I prefer to use a shimmer powder. I use the Body Shop's Brush on Radiance to add a little colour and shimmer to highlight my cheek bones in the day, and on my brow bone in the evening!
