Every season, I say ‘this is my favourite time of year’ and Autumn is no exception. I really love the darker evenings and being able to make my house warm and cosy with my little lamps and scented candles of pumpkin spice and gingerbread. Drinking hot chocolate with lashings of cream, cinnamon and nutmeg, wrapping up warm and walking through crunchy leaves, the smell of bonfires hanging in the air, the fun and festivities of Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night, eating warm chestnuts and toffee apples, sleeping on warm, flannel sheets… There are so many lovely things about autumn.
And not forgetting of course, all of the gorgeous colours of falling foliage that surround us at this time of year – rich, vibrant shades of red, yellow, orange and gold. As a natural redhead, these are not normally colours that I would choose to wear. My hair is a fairly light shade of red (almost a strawberry blonde shade) and I have pale blue eyes and so for me personally, I don’t feel that these shades are the most flattering on me! However, getting in the spirit of Autumn, I decided to have a play around with my makeup and try some colours inspired by the changing seasons.
I have used colours from Younique’s range of Mineral Pigment Powders to create this eye makeup look, applied dry and then blended with a Sponge Brush. On my lips, I am wearing Lucrative Lip Gloss in ‘Livid’. As I said previously, they are not colours I would normally choose to wear but it’s always fun to experiment with different makeup looks and colours and you never know – you may discover something that looks amazing on you!
I am also looking forward to trying out these beautiful Splurge Cream Shadows in autumnal inspired colours. These eyeshadows have a lovely, velvety smooth texture and are super luxurious so I am looking forward to adding more to my collection!
What colours are you planning to wear for your makeup this season? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
Until next time, stay beautiful x
