Everyday Autumnal Make-Up Routine

everyday autumnal make-up routine

Dewy skin, slight smokey eyes and berry lips are the topic of the day. I have officially switched into the colder, autumn make-up look and I am really enjoying it. Here is what I am currently using on my face on a day to day basis.

THE BASE

Foundation comes in the form of the lovely Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation (€13.99) in the shade in the shade Shell. This foundation is light and really gives that whole dewy skin with a hint of natural effortlessness that I am always yearning for at this time of year. For concealer, its got to be the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit (€33.50) in Ivory. It works under the eyes and on blemishes so it's great 2 in 1 concealer. It does need a delicate hand however as it can cake but the coverage is really good that it covers a multitude of sins.

Next on the face is the Bourjois Bronzing Primer (€13.99), I have been obsessed with this bronzer lately. It can be used under or over foundation but I like to go for a stronger bronzed look so I put it on top. It's just an easy product to blend that gives a nice warm glow to my pale complexion. The final thing in the base department is my newest obsession from The Balm. It's Cindy-Lou Manizer (€22.86), a gorgeous pink highlighter/blush that I love using to give a glow to my skin. It isn't glittery, it just adds a sheen to the cheeks that I love.

THE EYES 

A quick eye look is just what I need in the morning. Eyebrows are provided by the remarkably affordable Sleek Brow Stylist in Dark (€6.99). The colour matches and it fills the gaps between my brows with ease. Eyeshadow is one of my favourite affordable products from Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet (€7.13). This is one of those slap it one, blend and you have a quick smokey eye. The formula stays all day too making it a winner.

For liner and mascara I've been using the Pixi Lash Line Ink (€15.00), it gives a long lasting liner look with relative ease considering I'm quite rubbish with liquid liner. And for mascara, it's the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara (€12.99). This has gotten some buzz online and I've just started to test it out however, so far I'm enjoying it but I think further testing is needed.

THE LIPS

The final part to this everyday look is an old favourite from Revlon. The ColourBurst Lip Butters (€11.20) are amazing and I still love wearing them especially in the shade "Berry Smoothie". It's nourishing on the lips, simple to apply and gives the perfect no fuss autumn berry look that is so essential at this time of year.
