Autumn Drugstore Beauty

Hello everybody!

Now it is October and we are well and truely into the new season now. I thought I would share with you my 'Autumn beauty' In Autumn my make up tends to change, wearing a lot more dark shades and pinky tones. My favourite look for this Autumn are dark eyes and dark lips, especially the smokey eye look. There is nothing more inviting than wearing a black eye shadow with a dark red lipstick or a darker nude eye shadow with a plum lipstick, some of which are starting to be my favourite looks this season. 

My Autumn picks start of with the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms in the shades 'Shameless' and 'Sultry'. I decided to purchase a dark purple colour for a sophisticated appearance on an Autumn night out contrasting with a lighter pinky shade for a natural day time look. 

After buying 'Shameless' I started to be in awe with purple shades. I picked the Collection 'Gothic Glam' lipstick in the shade no.3 called Revenge. This is my absolute favourite this season, it makes you look so glamorous by adding just this hint of colour to your lips. I like to wear this lipstick with a dark eye shadow to accompaniment. 

`Other make up included the 'Dream Touch Blush' in shade no 7 Plum. This blush comes in a tiny little jar which is perfect when putting in your make up bag. It has a lovely shade which has great staying power and lasts. I've just this so much already this season, well done Maybelline. I like to wear this once I have bronzed my face to give my cheeks a lovely pinky glow. 

It's all about the eyes for me this Autumn, firstly with the Colour Tattoo 24 Hr from Maybelline. I have been absolutely loving these eye shadows. I picked up the colour 35 'On and on bronze', it is a beautiful brown shade which I thought would be perfect for this time of year, I love this eye shadow so much so definitely going to purchase some more in different colours. I also have been loving another purple shade item (surprise!) the Maybelline Masterdrama Chromatic Eye liner Crayon in the shade Purple Light. The only annoying this about this is you have to sharpen it. (so if anyone knows of any decent eye pencil sharpeners that would be great!)

There is only one eye palette that I always use time and time again and it is the Seventeen Eye Palette. I don't think you can buy this separately which is shame. Any Palettes do the same colours?

I also hadn't bought a nail varnish in absolute ages, so I also picked up the Collection Work The Colour Deep Blue Sea shade 14. This gives your nails a lovely blue shade. Works well for those cosy evenings in or the for a fun night out. 

What make up are you loving this Autumn? Any Drugstore products you love right now?
