My Autumnal Makeup 2016!

by - October 28, 2016

Hey Everyone,

Through out autumn so far, I have loving wearing a copper eye and a semi nude lip! I don't know why but it's literally all I've been wearing. So, today I am going to share with you the make up look I have been loving - enjoy! xxx

First of all, I use my moisturiser which is the Nivea Daily Essentials Rich Moisturising Day Cream. This is for dry and Sensitive skin and makes your skin feel really hydrated without it looking too oily.

Then, I prime my eyes using the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer. This stuff is honestly amazing and makes your eyeshadow last all day.

On my eyes I have been loving using the Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Screenshot. First of all, I apply nectar - a pale peach shade - all over my lid. This just creates a nude(ish) base for me to work on. I then use the shade Cinnamon Toast on the majority of my lid (excluding the inner corner). This is a shimmery gold/copper shade that I perfect in Autumn / Winter. To create depth, I add a bit of Roast onto the outer corner and blend it up into my crease. To finish off I use the shade Virgin for my Naked Palette in the inner corner and the shade Creep across my lash line to make my lashes seem fuller and darker.

This may surprise you, but for my eyes I'm not going to use my Smashbox Full Exposure! I've found a new mascara and I absolutely love it. It's the Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme Volume mascara! The wand is quite chunky and rounded and that is what I look for in a mascara so this ticks all the boxes. It makes my lashes look both volumised and lengthened. (Just make sure you apply it right down to the roots to get the volume).

For concealer, I'm going to use the Seventeen Stay Time concealer in Extra Fair under my eyes and Soap and Glory Kick Ass Blur + Brighten Concealer in the shade light on the rest of my face. These two concealers work hand in hand and don't make my face look cakey at all so that's perfect.

To moisturise my lips I'm using the Baby Lips Autumn Collection in Vanilla Cupcake. This smells AMAZING! And Finally, for my lip colour I'm using the Kiko Velvet Mat in 613 which is a gorgeous dark pinky nude.

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this post.  You can find all then links to the products used below.

  1. Hi dear, love the post but I wish you included a photo of yourself with the lovely makeup on ^^ that lipstick colour seems gorgeous.

    My usual go-to makeup is a bit of Revlon's photoready foundation and dark red lips or small cateye cos I'm mostly late and don't have time to apply anything else.

    1. Thank you! I could do a lip search for you but I'm an anonymous blogger so I couldn't do a full face. I love a good cat eye too! xxx

  2. This sounds like such a wearable yet stunning autumnal look - I'm loving the smash box trio too! xx

    1. Thank you - it is, and it suits pretty much every skin tone! It has the most gorgeous autumnal shades doesn't it! xxxxxx
