MAKEUP | My 2018 Autumn Makeup Look


This year my makeup matches my top and I think that's pretty convenient.

In the autumn I love creating new makeup looks. They often include warm shades and lots of shimmer, because Christmas is getting closer and closer and whenever November comes, I can't help starting to feel festive... Yes, I'm one of those people. Sorry.
This year, my makeup look matches the Miss Selfrige crop top I'm wearing: it has some red, some green, and no, it wasn't actually inspired by a Christmas tree. It just features some of my favourite products at the moment, which I'm going to review below, so keep reading!


I've been loving the Botanics skincare range by Boots recently. I am currently using their day cream and its texture is soft, just thick enough and moisturising without feeling heavy on the skin.
The foundation I am wearing on these photos is the FaceFinity All Day Flawless foundation by Max Factor. It was a firm favourite of mine a few years ago and I recently just got it again - the coverage is light to medium, and I love how natural it looks on the skin. The finish is neither matte nor glowy, it just evens out the skin beautifully.


On my eyes, I have one of my favourite autumn/winter eyeshadows: Sahara Dawn by H&M Beauty, a gorgeous deep burgundy shade. It is slightly shimmery and super pigmented, so I only applied a little touch in the outer corners and then blended it out. It's the only eyeshadow I have tried from H&M Beauty, but if the rest of their range is as good, then it's definitely worth trying out. I paired it with a gold glitter eyeshadow from the French brand Nocibé, and on my lower lash line I am wearing the wonderful Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in the shade Stash. I find that khaki green really compliments brown eyes and I've been wearing this pencil all autumn, it stays put for hours and the formula is gorgeous. A touch of NYX eyeliner for a more dramatic look, mascara, and I'm good to go.


On my lips I've got the beautiful NYX Liquid Suede, a semi-matte liquid lipstick which I wear all the time as soon as the leaves start to turn red. It needs to be reapplied after a few hours (the colour at the centre of the lips tends to fade a little) but for the price tag, it's a really good product. I love NYX as a brand and I've always enjoyed everything I've tried from them. 
In the autumn I love deep burgundy shades. I'm also yet to wear my purple MAC lipstick (Instigator) this year, and when I do I'll probably post a picture on my Instagram - so make sure you're following me there!

  2. I love autumnal shades too, and the lipstick you are wearing is exceptionally beautiful. I haven´t tried anything from NYX ever, maybe this one would be a good product to start exploring the brand.
