The Edit: Autumn Eyes

When it comes to autumn I like to switch up my makeup, play around with colours and add new products into my routine. Adding berry tones such as Mac cranberry and star violet into my everyday eye makeup routine during autumn adds a subtle warmth which is perfect throughout the colder months. 

The Maybeline 24hr colour tattoo in On and on bronze (£4.99) is one of my favourite eye bases to use throughout autumn. The bronze tone creates a base for other shadows to blend with or as a gorgeous everyday wash of colour. The little pots are very versatile, I like to smudge a small amount along my lower lash line to add definition. 

I have a lot of love for mac eyeshadows (£10), I love the pigmentation and formula. I have a few favourites when it comes to autumn but my top three for an everyday easy to wear colour are: wood winked, a veluxe pearl formula with bronze undertones. Sable, a frost formula with red undertone brown running through it. And star violet, also a veluxe formula; this burgundy shimmer has a gorgeous purple/pink undertone. 

I have a few NYX jumbo eye pencils (£5) in my collection but this one is by far the prettiest I own, Rust pairs beautifully with mac sable or star violet. I like to use the NYX jumbo eye pencil as a base for my shadows, this makes the colour last longer whilst adding more depth to the eyes. 

Topshop magic liner (£6.50) is a perfect addition to any eye makeup, the thin felt tip nib makes it easy to add a small line along the upper lash line, or to add a thick cat eye liner for a more evening look. 

Lastly, mac paint pot in painterly (£15.50) is one of my most used beauty products, I love this stuff. It creates a clear base to apply shadows onto whilst acting as a primer for the eye lids. It looks like it wouldn’t do much but without it my eye makeup doesn’t last as long or look the same. 

What’s your autumn picks this year?
