MakeUp: The Autumn Beauty Edit

I love autumn, and autumn makeup is definitely my favourite too. Nothing makes me happier than bringing out a bold lip to go with a big scarf! So I thought I would share my typical makeup look, the items I have been reaching for over the past month, the perfect bits for autumn. 

For primer I am still using the YSL Blur Primer exclusively. I really love the feel of this, it just covers any texture or any imperfections. For foundation I have been using the YSL All Hours in the shade B10. The finish of this is flawless, and covers up any and all imperfections. 

I then use the MAC Select Cover Up to cut out my brows and deal with some pesky spot situation. It's the ultimate of concealers - and is the perfect eyeshadow base too! 

For concealer under my eyes I am using the Kat Von D lock it concealer. I have stupidly bought the wrong shade in this, but overall it is nice. Very thick but blends easily. A few people I know of have had issues with this not sitting well - but I haven't had this issue :)  I have been setting my base using the MAC Studio Fix powder. I love how much coverage this has in it, it is the perfect friend to anyone with oily skin like myself! :)

For contouring I am still using my faithful Too Faced Coco Contour palette. it is so perfect for my pale skin. I am so close to hitting pan on this, it is driving me nuts - so close! As for blush I am still determined to finish the Hourglass Mood Exposure. It's a stunning blush, the perfect not too blushy shade :) 

For Bronzer I have been loving the new Clarins Bronzer. It smells incredible, and I love how warm the tone it, yet it doesn't make me feel orange. Such a stunning shade, and this will last me forever and a day! :)

Highlighter! I am still using Becca Champagne Pop religiously, I love it - and I am so determined to hit pan on it :) - all my base products I just want to finish up, how terrible of me lol 

I have been loving the Jeffree Star Androgyny Palette. I find I go through phases of this one, and right now I cannot get enough of it. This and the Anastasia Beverley Hills Subculture. They help to create the perfect grungy looking eye, a bit messy, warm orange/red tones with the occasional pop of blue. These two are perfect for this. 

For lashes I am still in love with the MAC Bold and Bad lash. The double wand on this is incredible, and helps to make the most of your lashes. I love the look this creates. Cannot get enough of the formula. 

Brows I am still using the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil, quick, easy, and straightforward to use. The packaging on this is just complete goals, I love it. 

MAC D is for Danger is my perfect autumn shade. It's so so beautiful. It really does just make everything feel so much more autumnal! In contrast to that I have been loving MAC Baby's All Right for my nude - this was part of the Nikki's nudes collection. 

For once I am actually using lipgloss too. I usually hate lipgloss. But this is under the obligation that my hair is also tied up. Because I cannot handle my hair being stuck to my lips it is hell. My gloss of choice is the Fenty one. It is really nice. 

For setting it all I am still using the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day.

For perfume I am still completely obsessed with the Jo Malone English Oak & Hazelnut scent. It smells so beautifully masculine, but still comes across well, its lovely.
