Hello beauties, It’s nearly time for the most beautiful season of the year and just like the weather changes, my makeup bag does too. I have put together some amazing autumnal makeup picks that will be seeing me though to winter.

My favourite palette of the year so far. This is a new comer to my collection and I can’t think of a better time for it to be added. Look at those dreamy, rich colours. If this doesn’t scream autumn/fall then I don’t know what does. The pigmentation of these shades are gorgeous and the formula is super smooth.
A oldie but still a goodie, this has some beautiful shades in for those who like to play around with warmer colours. The dark red shade ‘muse’ and the dark brown shade ‘icon’ in this palette are amazing and I’m a huge fan of Lime Crime’s eyeshadow formula.
This palette is a winner for anyone that wants to rock a berry eye this autumn. The colour pay off in these shadows are incredible, especially the shimmers which are blinding. It’s also perfect to travel with thanks to its compact size. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with this.
And lastly for the eye palettes, I included a new favourite of mine, the velvet rose palette. This bargain (its £4!!) is perfect for those who like neutral colours, it has cool tones and some warmer tones and glitters. This is the dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft glam palette and has great pigmentation and the colours are so pretty.
My favourite, no that’s not a strong enough word for how much I love this product. My holy grail. This can be worn sheer by mixing a illuminator as it has a medium coverage. It can be built to full however. The finish of this is flawless. I love wearing this in the summer and wearing with a dewy primer and base and love wearing this matte in the winter by setting it with a powder (it’s a matte finish foundation anyway). It doesn’t oxidise and it literally lasts on my skin all day without a touch up. This costs £26 for 30ml. It doesn’t come with a pump sadly but these can be bought at a additional cost of £6 from MAC.
I’ve recently fell back into love with eyeshadows in a pencil form, you can apply them directly onto your lid on its own, using a brush to smoke it out or as a base colour for adding shimmers to make them more pigmented. I’ve been loving the shades, they have great colour payoff, are easy to use and only cost £5.50 and are now in the 3 for 2 offer in Boots if you live in the UK!
One of my favourite highlighters this year has to be the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy collab. It’s so perfect for autumn as it’s a stunning light gold which will compliment the warmer toned looks. This has a gorgeous buttery formula and a wet look sheen without clinging to texture on the skin. It’s pricey but it’s so pigmented that you don’t need to use much to get a blinding shine.
Starting with the lipsticks is one the the L’Oréal x Balmain collab. This is the shade ‘fever’ which is a stunning warm orange, which of course reminds me of a pumpkin. I really love the formula of the Balmain collab lipsticks, they’re super smooth and this particular lipstick is matte.
Another L’Oréal lippy is from the chocolate collection is shade ‘tasty ruby’ which is a dark cherry red. A red lipstick is my favourite and this has the most gorgeous smooth formula. It applies really easy thanks to the tear shaped applicator. It doesn’t leaving that tacky feeling when drying and looks really pretty on the lips. Plus it smells like chocolate which is always a bonus!
I always go on about how much I love Lime Crime so it’s no surprise that a liquid lipstick is amongst my favourites. This is the shade ‘Salem’ which is a stunning chocolate brown shade. I’m yet to find a product that I don’t love from Lime Crime and this matte dream is no exception. Expect a super smooth application and finish with this bad boy with tonnes of colour pay off.
I had to add a metallic lipstick in as they’re so in trend right now. This gorgeous shade is ‘gold dusk’ which is a grungy copper colour and I could imagine this going perfect with a purple smoky eye. This dries down matte but has that shimmery finish.
I was gifted this at a buxom event I was kindly invited to a few months ago and fell in love with the formula. It’s a heavy duty gel lipstick with a matte finish and gorgeous colour pay off. This is shade ‘Toxic Cherry’ which is the perfect classic red. I love how hard wearing this lipstick is. These are currently on sale on here for £9 So grab yourself a bargain as there’s so many fab shades to choose from.
A new comer to my lipstick collection and a product that I reviewed recently here is the the NYX Strictly Vinyl Gloss. Which is a must for those who love a high shine finish. This is shade ‘bombshell’ which is the perfect warm brown.
