Today I'm going to be blabbing about something that may or may not be of interest to you.
After finding myself without much to do, I ventured into the world of tidying mine and the boyfriend's bedroom. This lasted all of 2 minutes.. mainly because I started sorting through my makeup.
I figured, I had to try it all on to see if it was still usable, right?
I now had the perfect opportunity to try out some of the Autumn trends and colours I had heard about from some beauty bloggers I follow, and I'd like to share with you the outcome!
First trend, the plum/purple lip.
This comes up quite often in the Autumn. Purple hues and dark rich colours take the place of the pinks and reds of Spring/Summer. Here I've used a Scandaleyes eyeliner by Rimmel London in 'Purple' and gone over it with a lipgloss in 'Who does your work?' by Benefit.
Eyeliner? Yes eyeliner. I'm not really a lipstick person, so I worked with what I have. Not too bad an outcome is it?
Keeping in theme with the purple hues shown on my lips, here I've got violet eyes.
So here I started off with a purple eyeshadow, this is 'Plum' by Natural collection (they are an absolute bargain people, if you don't like spending lots of money on makeup, I'd recommend them!) I used a bit of Urban Decays 'Busted' eyeshadow, from the Naked 2 Palette, through my crease and lined my eyes with the Scandaleyes liner in 'Purple'.
Next is the good old browns/coppers Autumnal trend.
I love myself a golden, brown eye so here it is!
Starting off with 'YDK' from the Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay I patted that into my eyelid. I put 'Busted' through the crease and 'Chopper' in the centre of the eyelid. I topped this look off with some brown liner (Urban Decays 24/7 liner in 'Demolition') and some mascara; my favourite is 'They're real' from Benefit.
So those are the looks I tried out! Let me know what you like to wear, makeup wise, in the Autumn and any products you suggest! Student loan will be in soon, I feel like a shopping spreee!!!!
In honesty though I need a coat and some cardigans before I get anymore makeup. It is getting CHILLY in Portsmouth!
and now my face is now having a go at me for abusing it with some makeup wipes.
I hope you enjoyed reading my makeupy blogpost!
