What’s in my Makeup Bag: Autumn Edition

Autumn Makeup

This autumns beauty trends are for women who are not afraid to make a statement. I love to change my makeup routine seasonally. This year, the transition from summer to autumn has seen me swap red lips for fuchsia, ditch black eye liner and add earthy-neutrals to my eye shadows.

My autumn makeup colour palette is going to consist of berries, coppers, rose-golds and burnt-oranges. I love keeping my eyes toned down and earthy while adding a vibrant pop of colour to the lips. Here are some of my current favourite picks.


My base routine hasn’t changed for autumn, these products really work for my skin and I will continue to use them.
bareMinerals BarePro ‘Sanstone’ for full coverage or Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Weightless ‘Warm Natural’ when I want something lighter on my skin.
CONCEALER: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ‘Custard’ is my under-eye go-to with bareMinerals BarePro Concealer ‘Medium Warm’ – for blemishes.
BRONZER:¬†Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer ‘Nude Bronze Light’ has been my favourite bronzer for my skin-tone for a long time, I also use this as my eyeshadow base.


EYESHADOW: Fenty Moroccan Spice Palette has been my go-to to create different looks for the eyes this season. See palette swatches here.
MASCARA: My eyes water constantly in autumn between wind & central heating, this is my fabouitre waterproof mascara EVER! It truly does not budge and keeps its volume all day.
CURLERS: My eyelashes are super straight so I always curl after I have applied mascara. I find if I curl them before, the curl drops.


I have made a move towards berries and fuchsia tones for autumn. They create a playful feel to a makeup look. I also find berry shades make my eye colour pop. I love bareMinerals ‘OMG’, it lasts through my many coffees and stays smooth all day. In the evenings I prefer to move to deeper tones for a more grown-up, sexier look with Nars Power Pigment in ‘Warm Leatherette’ and Sisley Phyto Lip Twist Matte ‘Ruby’.
