As we've skipped into Autumn, my makeup look is much more natural and bronzey & I've found myself using a mix of fantastic new additions to my makeup bag along side some old school favourites. 

I began todays' makeup look using the Loreal True Match Highlight which is a multi use liquid highlight, perfect for using either as a primer, mixing with foundation or as the name suggests a highlight. The super creamy formula blends effortlessly into the skin leaving it looking radiant & hydrated ready to complete the rest of the makeup look. To even out my skin tone I've been favouring the Loreal Infallible 24HR Matte foundation & the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer which give the perfect amount of coverage for this time of year. The longevity of both products too is amazing, which is always a bonus!

To give my face a bit of definition I've used the Soap & Glory Solar Powder bronzer which is very very sadly on its' last legs. I really need to go back out & repurchase this because it really is one of my all time favourites. It's brilliant! Another oldie but a goodie is the Bourjois Little Round Pot blush in the shade 33 Lilas D'Or, which for me is the absolute perfect rosy blush. These blushes are quite nostalgic for me and I'm sure I'll keep buying them until Bourjois stop making them.

I've been sculpting my brows recently to be much darker & thicker than they were in Summer & to do so I've been using the always amazing New Cid Cosmetics I-Groom. I was first introduced to this product when I was a teenager & I've loved it ever since. If you're looking for a super precise yet easy to use brow pencil, this is the one! A new mascara to my collecting is the Loreal Mega Volume Miss Hippie, which I still need to write a full review of on this blog, but let me tell you that it's amazing! Loreal have really upped their game for me recently & this product is no exception.

Finally onto the lips. To prep the lips I love using Bubblegum from Lush, a super sweet sugar scrub which works perfectly at exfoliating the lips. As seasons change I think lip colour is something that changes dramatically, or it does with me anyway. This month has seen the welcome return of a nude brown toned lipsticks and todays lipstick of choice is the beautiful MAC Mocha.

What do you think of todays makeup look? Have you tried any of these products before? How has your makeup routine changed from Summer to Autumn?
