Autumn Leaves ~ Make Up Look

So autumn is here and this calls for change; clothes become darker, lips become bolder and nails turn to warmer shades. I recently purchased some Real Techniques make up brushes with some birthday vouchers, and when I got them I was so excited that I decided to create this make up look. Full of warm browns and berry reds, this look is perfect for the season change.

Wake Me Up -Foundations
Stay Matt -Powder
Au Naturel -Eyeshadow palette, Moss Bark
Supercat -Eyeliner 
They're Real -Mascara
Vanilla lip balm by Body Shop (seasonal range)
Plum Beautiful -Lipstick
Eye Brushes -Real Techniques
Face Brushes -Real Techniques

To achieve this look complete your normal skin routine- i.e concealer/ foundation etc. I used the Wake Me Up concealer on problem areas, foundation on top- blended in with the buffing brush and then Collection concealer over the top on the really bad areas, like under the eyes. 
Then to create the brown eye look, I used the shade Moss, from my Sleek palette, all over my eyelid and then the shade Bark in the crease. I used the Real Techniques brushes to apply and blend the shadows. Then I took my pen eyeliner and drew a thin line close to the lash line. I took the line right into the corner of my eye and to the edge of my eyelid with no flick. I think this technique really opens your eye. Then I used my favourite mascara to coat my lashes, making them look thick and bold.
For lips I used a moisturiser and then put a pink to berry coloured lipstick on top. I like the lipstick I choose because it's not too dark but still gives the look an autumn vibe.

I hope you liked this look, I’m still working on how I show you make up looks. I hope you enjoyed the photography on this post as well, I got really autumnal when I brought the brown leaves inside! I hope you all are ready for autumn 2014,

  2. Thank you so much Jenny! I have been improving a lot recently! If you really want to try the mascara, why don't you buy a mini in Boots- it's cheaper and smaller but works all the same! xx
