The Autumn Makeup Bag

It's time for a seasonal makeup bag update! As per usual, I'm keeping things quite simple and neutral in terms of colour, with brown hues gracing both my eyes and lips. For a more "out there" look, I've added some darker options in a form of a coppery eyeshadow and a berry lip. So here is what's in store for the next few months:

Base:

Even though I'm now used to using BB and CC creams on a daily basis, I do feel that I need a bit more coverage when autumn rolls around. Here's where

L'oreal True Match

comes in - it's a demi-matte foundation that offers light to medium coverage. If I want to achieve a more dewy look, I apply it with a good ol'

BeautyBlender

but for a more matte look I reach for the

Zoeva Silk Finish

brush (which is awesome, by the way!). For undereye circles and blemishes, I use

MAC Pro Longwear

concealer which has firmly established itself as a vital part in my daily routine. HG concealer for sure!

Eyes & Brows:

L'oreal Telescopic Clean Defenition

has recently been my go-to mascara, as it separates, defines and lengthens the lashes without adding too much drama. There are a lot of days when I'll just curl my lashes and apply some mascara, however if I want a bit more definition, I reach for

Maybelline Color Tattoo

in

On and On Bronze

. This shimmery bronze eyeshadow takes seconds to apply and lasts well for the majority of the day. For the days when I feel like putting more effort into my eye makeup,

Stila Eyes are the Window

palette in

Soul

does the trick. It has a mix of both neutral mattes and gorgeous coppery shimmers which happen to be very autumn-appropriate. As for brows,

Tony Moly's Lovely Eyebrow

pencil is still pretty much the best eyebrow product I've ever used. 

Cheeks:

I'm quite lazy when it comes to contouring, bronzing and highlighting, so for the most days I've been using the

Max Factor Creme Puff

blush in

Lavish Mauve

. This blush and highlighter hybrid adds some much-needed dimension and color to the overall look.

Lips:

In no way am I limiting myself to two lip product, however these are the ones that I see myself using the most. I've been wearing

MAC Whirl

(surprise, surprise!) non-stop these past couple of days. You all know this one  - the perfect brown-toned nude with a matte finish. Same old, same old. Now, on the other hand, we have

MAC Rebel

which is a deep berry shade. Surprisingly, this one is very wearable, especially when it's applied with a light hand.
