My autumn makeup favourites

Before I start I was want to say that yes I do know autumn started on the 23rd of September which was quite a while ago now, but i googled it and apparently autumn doesn't actually finish until December 21st which means that technically this pot is still totally relevant for about another month so I'm just going to go with it. So today I have my everyday autumnal makeup for you!
Face and eyes:
Face products are definitely my favourite to buy and experiment with because there as so many different things you can try and everything can give you  different look to the last one. Blush is definitely an autumn essential for me and my favourite one at the moment is the Sleek blusher in rose gold. This is such a great blush as its slightly deeper than all my other pink shaded blushes and it has tiny flecks of gold running through it, adding to the autumnal feel tremendously! Another thing I feel like autumn wouldn't be comeplete without is highlighter. I think highlighter is a great product all year round but especially in the autumn months because it really helps your cheeks to glow. My favourite one to use is Mary-Lou manizer by the Balm because it gives such a gorgeous champagney coloured highlight. Then finally for eyes, golden eyeshadow just completes any autumn makeup look and I find that gold tones suit my eye colour the best anyway. I would definitely recommend the Kiko baked eyeshadow in 03, it's a beautiful golden bronze colour with tiny shimmers running through it. If you ask me it's a must have for any makeup collection!
Lip colours are another thing that really make autumn the best season, it's time to whip out those berry tones and dark reds and show them off. Two of my favourite lip products to wear this time of year are my Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 (I'm sure you all know this colour!) and my Revlon colourburst lacquer balm in 120. Rimmel 107 for those of you that don't know is a matte dark red that's basically a cult favourite for anyone that's in to makeup and looks stunning on all skin tones. But if I want to wear a lip product that isn't matte so nowhere near as drying on the lips then I love the Revlon colour burst. Its a bright pink shade which I know isn't something you would always associate with autumnal lip colours but trust me, this one really works. This one feels super moisturising on the lips and I think it tastes a little bit like mint! If you didn't want this too look so bold you could also dab a tissue over your lips to make it less bright.

To finish off, what autumn look would be complete without a good olé coat of nail polish. My top ones for this time of year are the Kate Spade nails inc polish in Big apple red and the Barry M gelly nail paint in Greenberry. The nails inc polish is an amazing deep red colour which looks amazing and is really great quality. Then the Barry M one is a really nice green colour which I really cant describe so I will leave a link to it here and you can look for yourself. I know this one doesn't really scream autumn but I think it's one of those shades that looks great all year round.

I would love to hear what your favourite products for autumn are. Thanks for reading.
