Autumn Make-up Look!

Please excuse the red splodge on one of my eyes. It has been a bit blood shot the past couple of days. 
In spirit of the beginning of Autumn, I thought I would create a make-up look that's appropriate and easily wearable at this lovely time of year. Along with a lot of other people I love autumn and I just can't wait to get more into it.

To start off I primed my skin with my usual 17 photo flawless primer and then followed up with my L'oreal True Match Foundation. I applied my foundation with my well loved Beauty Blender. For concealer I used the Rimmel wake me up under my eyes and the collection lasting perfection on any imperfections. To set my make up I went in with my Rimmel stay matte powder. I also contoured my face using my NARS Laguna bronzer and for blush I chose Sleek's Life's a Peach which I applied to the apples of my cheecks then blended towards my temple. After that I filled in my eyebrows with MAC charcoal brown and set them with my not so clear 17 clear mascara.

For my eyes I wanted quite a smokey look so I decided to use some colours from my Urban Decay Naked palette. Before adding any eyeshadow I primed my eyes with the cute little Primer Potion sample that came with the palette. I then applied the colour Sidecar all over my lid using a fluffy blending brush. On the same brush I took a little bit of Sin and placed it on the inner half of my eyelid over where I put Sidecar. After that I picked up the colour Naked on, yet again, the same brush and used it to give some subtle crease definition. To darken up the look, I used Darkhorse which I applied using a flat eyeshadow brush. I patted this on to the outer quarter of my eye, then I got a clean blending brush and blended away! I also applied Darkhorse on my lower lash line. Finally I used Virgin to highlight my tear duct area and brow bone.

The eyeliner I used on my upper lash line was Maybelline's Black gel eyeliner and on my lower lash line I used MAC's Teddy. For mascara I went for Maybelline One by One followed by Max Factor  Master Piece Max. 

The finishing touch to my Autumn look was to add a lovely, dark, plum lip colour. To create this I used Relvon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 005 Crush and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in LG143 Plum.

I hope you liked my Autumn make-up look. Have a lovely day :)!
