my everyday autumn makeup

as of late, something strange has happened during my morning makeup routine as i've found myself opting for a nude lip and bold eyes, rather than my signature winged liner and bold lip. so, what's the deal?

nude lips
up until around a year ago, i'd always shyed away from nude lipsticks because i'm fairly pale, but once i figured out which shades worked with my skin tone i've been loving nude lips ever since. i recently picked up a soap and glory lipstick in the shade super nude and i've been reaching for it most days since then, and it's also what i used on my lips in this look. 

bold eyes
again around a year ago, i received the elf 100 piece eyshadow palette free with one of my orders but i only really started to play around with it throughout the summer, and am i glad that i eventually did! i've been loving mixing the pinks and purples within the palette to create a somewhat girly but grungy smoky eye that i think complements my eye colour wonderfully and works a treat with a nude lip. 

bronzed cheeks
i was big on bronzing throughout the summer, and now we've transitioned into autumn i'm still trying to hold onto a healthy glow and i achieve it using the collection bronze glow mosaic. the bronzer is somewhat shimmery, helping to add to the glow i'm attempting to achieve, and i find that it blends nicely and isn't too orange on my skin. 

strong brows
perhaps an obvious one, because when isn't a strong brow on the agenda?! as ever, i fill my brows in with my b. eyeshadow before giving them a good brush through with my trusty elf eyebrow treat and tame to finish the look. 

these are my current autumn makeup favourites, what are yours?


  1. You kinda remind me of Lilly Collins! Beautiful girl!
    I love that smokey eye, as you said it's so girly but grungey and just so gorgeous!


    1. oh wow, i don't see it at all but i'll take it regardless haha! thanks so much :)

  2. I love the look you got going on! It's cool and kinda effortless while still looking really nice.

    I never really consider bronzing my cheeks for the colder months, that's usually always a summer thing for me! That's interesting!

    Peace and Love,

  3. I've been ditching the eyeliner recently and going for more pinky smokey eye look too, as well as the nude lip. I really like the Maybelline lip crayon in nude perfection. I'm intrigued about this soap and glory lipstick now, it looks lovely! :)
