Five for Autumn

The weather's cooled off, the jumpers are out and the berry shades are back: autumn is slowly but surely upon us. As I did last year, I'm getting into the spirit of things by switching up my makeup wardrobe. I'm all about the copper and burgundy right now, so I thought I'd share some of my autumnal favourites today. Here are five beauty bits you can't really go wrong with this autumn!

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Sequin - How pretty is this? I mean, just look at that shade! It's such a gorgeous warm copper and, although you can't really tell from the swatch, it's got an almost wet look to it. That's how metallic/shimmery it is. Absolutely gorgeous. These shadows are generally amazing anyway and settle somewhere between a cream and powder on the formula front. They're pigmented, blendable and pretty much everything else you want from an eyeshadow. I have a fair few shades of this shadow now, but this is definitely one I'm looking forward to wearing now that it's a bit colder. 

Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow in Cinnamon - I only got my hands on this recently, but my oh my is it a beaut'. I didn't think much of it when I saw it in the pan, but once you swatch it, you can really see how gorgeous it is. If you only use a light wash of this, it gives the lid a lovely warmth that looks great even just by itself. You can also build this up into a more coppery, bronzey shade for a smokier look. Plus, the shade name is just so appropriate for this time of year!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 - Alright, alright, I know most of you already have this and three back ups tucked away in your stash but I couldn't not put this in here! As far as autumnal lip shades go, this one's a bit of a classic. Beauty gurus and bloggers have made this into somewhat of an autumn staple and although it took me years to find, I'm so glad I did! This with minimal eye makeup is a super fuss-free way to bring a bit of an autumnal vibe into your look.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lippie Stix in Pillow Talk - For those who tend to prefer deeper browns as opposed to reds during the colder months, I've got you covered! If it's brown you're after, this lipstick is a bit of a game-changer. I've never used a creamier matte lipstick than this particular formula and the pigmentation is just fab. A great shade for that grungey autumn look.

Sleek Powder Blush in Suede - The colour of this reminds me of pumpkins - that alone is enough to deem this an autumnal blush in my books! If you fancy a shade to compliment your heavier makeup, this is a great one. It goes with so many makeup looks and adds just a little wash of colour, without tipping the whole thing over into "too-much" territory. So affordable too!
