Quick Autumnal Makeup Routine 2019

After a month break, I'm finally back blogging, some of you may have seen on my Instagram that I was on a volunteering holiday for a few weeks. But recently I've been getting back into the swing of uni so my little blog took a back seat.
So since the last post, it's been cold and windy in England - very autumnal. Therefore the autumnal makeup looks have made their yearly appearance. From the berry lip, smokey or copper eye and a bit more coverage on the skin. In today's post, I wanted to share my quick makeup look for the days when I'm in a rush.

Brows & Eyes

The brow product that I have been using for a while is the Rimmel Powder Duo in 002 Medium Brown. The powder duo contains a light brown powder as well as a slightly darker brown wax. The mixture of both powders creates the perfect brow shade for me. I do use the little brush also to apply product then the spoolie to shape the brows.

For a simple and quick eye, I am loving the Charlotte Tilbury Bronzed Garnet Eyeshadow Pencil. A lovely pigmented eyeshadow which is easy to apply. Some amount on the lid and blended with a bit of bronzer/brown shade in the crease creates an easy autumnal eye look. I love that the undertones in the Bronzed Garnet compliment my green eyes which is an added bonus.

I do love a good mascara, recently been using an old favourite the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Firstly I really like the limited rose gold/pink packaging which is perfect for the upcoming festival season. The formulation and the applicator brush are great, grabs every lash. Adds lengths and volume and doesnt transfer/flake which is a bonus especially in these colder/wet months.


For the base I use this Rimmel duo; Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and Rimmel Lasting Matte 'Illuminator' Concealer. The Rimmel foundation has lovely coverage and pigmentation, it is also lightweight on the skin. For under-eye circles I apply some of the illuminator concealers to cover any pigmentation and under-eye bags. It also helps neaten up any eye makeup and helps brighten up the face.

To add a bit more colour to my ghostly pale complexion I use the ABH Light Light-Medium Contour Kit. To set my face I use a mixture of the 3 powder shades, then a mixture of the bronzer/contour shades to add shape and warmth to my face.

To add a bit of a winter glow, the highlighter of chose is the Colourpop x Zoella 'Swipe Right' Highlighter. A pigmented highlighter with pink relexes and looks good on most skintones. The fine powder blends into the skin really quickly/easily. I apply it to my cheekbones, brow bone and inner corners.


Usually, I have 2 moods for autumnal lips; berry or nude. If it's berry lip; Rimmel 107 is a classic. Or more a muted bold lip, the Clinique Super Strawberry Chubby Stick. For nude, you can't beat a Charlotte Tilbury English Beauty for the finishing touch.

Hope you like this post and have a fab start to the week!
