We have reached the penultimate month of the year, what is this craziness!
So I thought it was about time I show you what makeup I’m liking for this autumn… And it includes a big appearance from Urban Decay. Starting with the Naked Skin Foundation, I’m still really enjoying using this, it helps create such a perfect no makeup base. I’ve been doing some light contouring to help give my old round face a little definition… I’m still not a hundred percent on how well I’m doing, I’m using the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and glow(£49.00) which is a really lovely luxurious product to use.
My favourite shade of blush to wear during the cooler months is a rosy red, I usually reach for my trusty Stubborn from MAC however recently I’ve been using this old cream Nars blush in Lokoum. It gives me a nice rosy colour on my cheeks, nothing too much just a little colour.
On to my eyes, I primed using the Maybelline Colour matte cream shadow and using my new favourite palette the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette(You can read a post about it here). Now that we’re well into Autumn I have so excited to wear the shade extra bitter, which is the perfect burnt orange colour… it’s incredibly pigmented and blends beautifully…
Keeping with Urban Decay I have been so excited about the Razor Sharp Liquid eyeliner(£16), I picked up the shade ‘street‘, a very dark green which is dark enough to be so wearable with most looks. It could almost pass off as black. Staying in place for the whole day it has a very petite brush, which is very easy to use. There are so many cool shades in the range. ‘street’ is a slightly different and less harsh alternative to black. But not too out there that you may feel out of your comfort zone. For fluttery lashes, I used my trusty YSL Babydoll mascara, I’ve raved about this for so long but it’s perfect for everyday lashes that separate perfectly and give a very pretty neat look.
Finally, on my lips, I’ve been using Too Faced Melted lipstick in the shade Chihuahua it’s a kinda black forest colour, brown with a cherry undertone to it. The Melted lipsticks are a lovely liquid lipstick that sits comfortably on the lips.
