Autumn is upon us and even though I'm sad that Summer has finished, I'm excited to switch around my make-up products and start using some products that I put away last year. I find it can get boring applying the same products everyday, so quite often I switch around a few things in my daily make-up routine and delve around my make-up draws to get inspired. It's time to ditch the coral lips and embrace the berry tones. 

RADIANT BASE: I have been using the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation £7.99 everyday recently and it is the perfect base to buff into your skin for everyday. It has a medium coverage, makes your skin look radiant and has great lasting power. However, now the sun has disappeared and the grey, gloomy days are upon us, I would recommend mixing half a pump of the Seventeen Skin Wow £5.99 in with your foundation. Or, apply it onto your skin before your foundation and it acts as a primer and gives radiance. The Match Perfection does give a gorgeous glow to the skin, but it looks even better mixed with Skin Wow and gives you that lit from within look.

RED TONED EYE-MAKEUP: Eye make-up is pretty much universal all year round but there is something about the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Quad £38 that screams Autumn to me. The deep red tones of the enhance shade pair very well with a berry lip. That is the cliché Autumn look after all. To add a little twist, apply the prime shadow (the champagne shade) all over the lid and in the inner corners of the eye, the enhance shade on top, the smoke shade (dark brown) to deepen the crease and then the pop (copper glitter) on top of your look to add some sparkle. The palette is so versatile and can be applied minimally for day time or heavily for a night look. 

PRETTY CHEEKS: The Benefit Rockateur Blush £23.50 pairs well with the rusty tones in your eye makeup and the vampy lips. What I love about it is that it doesn't clash, adds a little somethin' somethin' to the apples of your cheeks and brings the look together. It's a pretty pink shimmer shade which is very wearable for everyday.

BERRY LIPS: You all know how much of a fan I am of my pink-nude lip tones and bronze eyes, well this Autumn I am trying to force myself to step outside of my comfort zone and enjoy wearing a darker lip. After all, it can't do any harm can it? The entry level option is the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm 'Keep Mauving' £5.99, a gorgeous pinky plum shade. The crayon packaging makes it easy to apply and it twists up so you don't have to worrying about sharpening it. If I'm feeling more adventurous, then I'll apply the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre 'Unleash Me' £16.50. This is a gorgeous berry purple with red undertones. The lipgloss formula means it sits nicely on your lips and leaves a pretty stain when the gloss element has faded away.
