Wearable Autumn Makeup

I thought I'd do a wearable Autumn makeup routine which I have been doing for the past couple of weeks or so.

First things first I moisture my face using Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream and prime my entire face with Max Factor FaceFinity Primer concentrating mainly on my cheeks and my forehead. I then use my Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser on where I think I need it the most, which is usually my upper cheeks and my nose.

I use Max Factor Second Skin Foundation in 085 Caramel with my angled foundation brush. This looks super natural on me and gives such a nice finish. I don't really use an actual concealer, so I use Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick in 315 Soft Honey, with my domed foundation brush, as a concealer and a highlighter on my brow bone, under my eyes, bridge of my nose and my upper cheeks. I then set all this with a Natural Collection Loose Powder in Neutral Transculent with my Famous by Sue Moxley powder brush. This makes sure that my foundation doesn't fade throughout the day and makes my face not look shiny but super matte. From my concealer palette, I use the bottom colour in the fourth row for highlighting, across the bridge of my nose onto my forehead slightly, under my eyes, on my brown, on my cupids bow ever so slightly and my upper cheeks.

Moving onto brows, I line the bottom of my brows and top with a Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil  in 004 Black Brown and fill them in slightly. I then brush through with Rimmel Brow This Way. I use a spooley brush to comb through the beginning of my eyebrows so they don't look too harsh.

For my eyes I start off by using shade 5 on the MUA Undressed Palette with my fluffiest shadow brush across my entire lid. Since this is almost my skin colour, it hides my dark eye circles well and mattifies it so that I don't end up with a foundation crease line in my lid halfway through my day. I use shade 3 on the same palette in the middle of my lid and blend so it looks natural. If I have spare time, I'll apply eyeliner with small wings with my Rimmel Exageratte Eyeliner. I use my Rimmel Max Bold Curves Mascara, and sometimes my L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara and Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off Mascara if I have extra time and want my lashes to look longer and thicker.

I use my NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny for contour, or simply just the middle colour in the last row of my concealer palette. I then use my powder all of my face again to set it.

I finish off by using Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Berry Sorbet, which fades to a super natural pink colour and suits my skin tone.
