Autumn Inspired Make-up



I've decided to share one of my Autumn make up looks with you because for once, I actually have some very on trend make up! While on holiday, I bought the nicest little eye shadow palette which is strange for me because I pretty much gave up eye shadow about three years ago. Over the summer you may also remember I acquired a lovely Bobby Brown gel eyeliner and in the last couple of weeks I bought myself a (out of my comfort) dark red lipstick.

I feel I should also mention, I use nothing on my skin, apart from Benefits Lemonaid for blemishes. I steer clear of foundation and face powder as it makes me spotty and rarely matches my very very pale complexion.

TREND: In the September issue of ELLE, they recommended trying 'the metallic eye' and 'midnight lip' both of which I have attempted in my look below.

Your thoughts? (excuse the 'selfies')



For this look I used:

Bobbi Brown's Gel Eyeliner 31 Steel Ink
Bobbi Brown's Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush
Kiko's 02 Street Taupe Eye Shadow Palette
Benefit's Lemonaid
Benefit's Brow Kit
Maybelline's The One Volume Express Mascara
Revlon's 477 Black Cherry Lipstick

Looking forward to reading your comments!
