My autumn transition makeup

(L-R Frappe, Bitten, Burlesque, Seductive pink, Contour, Shabby chic)

Autumn means lots of good things, it means crunchy leaves all over the ground, it means big fluffy jumpers can make a reappearance and it also means it's the best time to introduce some deeper tones in to your makeup.

So I thought I'd show you some of the makeup products I like to use more especially at this time of year to make my makeup more autumnal feeling!

For my eyeshadow I like to wear more purples and reds and browns. My three favourite shades for this at the moment are Burlesque, Bitten and Frappe all from Makeup Geek. Bitten is a matte burgundy shade which looks amazing in the crease, Burlesque is almost it's shimmery twin but slightly more purple toned and Frappe is a warm toned matte brown that also looks amazing in the crease to deepen the look.

I also think autumn is the perfect time to go for a more berry toned blush and get away with it. I love the Maxfactor crème puff blush in Seductive pink as it gives a more purple blush to the skin instead of pink. It's an incredibly pigmented blush though so go careful when applying it!

Autumn is also the perfect time to sculpt out your face a little but more too and I love the Technic contour stick for this. It's so easy to use as you literally just draw lines wherever you want the contour and then blend it out with a brush. This one is perfect for contouring as it isn't orangey at all and gives a perfect natural sculpt.

Of course you have to finish of every makeup look with a lipstick and autumn time means you can go for the darker berry shades. I'm personally not that much of a berry shade lover on myself but I do really like the Sleek matte me lipstick in shabby chic. Its a lovely mauve shade that's a deep pink going on purple I would say. It's not too dramatic but looks perfect for this time of year.

I'm so excited to be introducing these makeup bits in to my routine more often now and I'd love to know what products you love for autumn makeup. Thanks for reading.
