I find around this time of year everyone switches up their make up looks for a dark lip and a very berry flushed look - which controversially I tend to stay away from mainly due to not feeling it suits me, well the dark lip at least, so I thought I'd just show my version of an Autumn make up look which I've been loving a lot.

To start with I don't usually turn to foundation, I'm a tinted moisturiser girl through and through but I wanted to try something with a little more coverage this season and after hearing the L'Oreal Infallible 24HR-Matte foundation left more of a satin finish on the skin I wanted to give it a go and have been loving it, the colour match is good although I feel needs slightly more blending as it oxides' on me.  I team the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector and Maybelline Anti-age Eraser mainly for obviously under my eyes but also the red areas I have, e.g. nose, chin and also above my eyebrows for a slight contour.

To add definition but also colour to my face I am loving the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Bronze to my cheeks, forehead, nose and jaw line with a slight dusting of Benefits Dandelion to my cheeks for a natural flush. Lastly I love, love, love Benefits Watts Up! Highlighter on my cheekbones, centre of nose, brow bones and also my cupids bow, its the perfect champagne glow that still adds warmth to my face because I hate looking washed out.

The eyes is the main part to this look for me and where I think the Autumnal look really kicks in, for my base I use the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Leather in Creamy Beige as it a great matte base while still adding depth, on top I then slightly pat the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze as it adds a little shimmer and I blend some along my lower lash line. Lastly using the Rimmel HD 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Brixton Brown I add the reddy shade in the centre to my outer corner and along my upper lash line which I would say is my favourite part of the look as its subtle yet enough to that little somethin' somethin'. Then I add my standard go to cat flick with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner as I can't complete any look without it and this eyeliner is the bomb! It really doesn't budge. Then my holy grail Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, which I just find really gives me that perfect curl and volume while holding all day, can't go wrong.

For the final touches I sweep the Maybelline Brow Satin Eyebrow Pencil through my eyebrows with the powder end throughout and the pencil end just to define the arch. I use MACs Boldly Bare Lip Pencil to define and shape my cupids bow and depending how I feel I'll fill in my whole lips and at the moment I'm loving Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Nude Pop, which you can get free in this months Glamour Magazine,  swept all over then patted in for a lovely nude slightly matte lip look. This make up look is all about the eyes so a nude-y matte lip is just a perfect finish.
