Autumn Make-up trends

Apologies to you, the reader.
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!

Love and cuddles
