My A/W Make Up Product Go To's ♥


As the darker nights set in, I always find my make up tends to go a little darker too.
I love all the deep autumnal colours such as reds, coppers, nudes and bronzes too.
I thought I would put together a post of all the products I have been using for the past month or so since Autumn arrived.
My make up bag consists of high end and low end make up products but I tend to reach for the low end one's these days because I like to experiment with new product launches, I do however have favourites I always tend to go to.

From left to right -  

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in Soft Beige - £5.99 -LINK.
This foundation has been a favourite of mine since I bought it last month and it was also on 3 for 2 so I picked up another. If you have oily skin which I tend to suffer from, this is for you.
It controls shine and the lightweight formula is really easy to blend, it's quite a thick coverage too but it makes my skin look flawless which I love.  
It lasts all day long however I find I have to top my powder up in my t-zone areas after a few hours but other than that, it does make my skin less shiny that most brands I have tried.
I think I would avoid this in the summer months though as I prefer a lighter coverage.

Make Up Gallery - Smoothly Does It Pressed Powder & Hide and Chic Concealer - £1.00 each - LINK.
I actually bought this powder on a whim because it was only a £1.00 and I wanted to try this make up brand after hearing a few things about it and I'm sold, it is one of the best pressed powders I have used and I'm currently on my 4th.
The concealer is quite good quality also and easily hides blemishes and dark circles well.
How cute is packaging too.


Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Palette - £29.50 - Boots - LINK.
I have used this pallet everyday since I got it for Christmas in 2014 last year from my bestie and it has been one of the most used presents I got.
This pallet has literally took my through every season with Dandelion and Coralista being favourites of mine through spring and summer this year.
Recently I have been using the shade Rockateur, it's the darkest shade in the set and it compliments the darker lips and eye make up.
Boots have the same sort of pallet this year with the mini versions of they’re real! mascara 
and they’re real! push-up liner included this time.
It would be a nice little addition to your make up set this Christmas and I think it's definitely well worth the money.

W7 Brow Parlour - £3.34 - Amazon - LINK.
I actually reviewed this a few months ago in a blog post - you can read that here if you want to see more - LINK.
I love this little set, while the brush that comes with it is a bit naff - I use my real techniques brush instead - this little kit is so handy for touching up eyebrows, it comes with two different shades of brown for your eyebrows, wax to keep your eye brows tidy and highlighter and a mini pair of tweezers.
I have used this for few months now and I find the shades subtle, if your looking for a budget friendly eyebrow pallet, or you want to experiment, I'd highly recommend this one.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes In Peachy Apricot - £1.00 - Poundland & The Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadow In Golden Cinnamon - £7.00 - The Body Shop - LINK. 
Autumn for me is all about the copper and golden shades, while you an also wear these for summer they are also quite versatile for A/W.
I actually bought the scandal eyes eyeshadow from Poundland, and they do a few different colours.
It may have been discontinued in Boots & Superdrug I'm not sure, but I do love these sticks, the formula is wet to apply and then it dries on your eyelids after application, and it lasts the whole day without flaking off, a must if your someone like me who rushes to get ready in the morning.
The colour crush eye shadows from the Body Shop are a favourite of mine too, they are very pigmented and great with blending and can be applied wet or dry, building colour with these is easy.

Rimmel Super Curler Mascara - £6.99 - Boots - LINK & Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner - £5.29 - LINK.
I actually love this mascara, when it first came out I thought I'd try it as it was on 3 for 2 and I was really impressed. The polymer ingredient in this mascara pushes your lashes up and adds a curl you would otherwise get from an eyelash curler and it lasts all day - I'm not sure about the 24 hours it states though - this can be built up from looking natural during the day to more dramatic at night.
With the extra windy weather and all the rain we get in A/W I always opt for a waterproof eyeliner that stays put too, I always buy my eyeliner from Rimmel because I always find it is so long lasting.

Seventeen Nail Polish In Ruby Gem - £1.00 - Boots - LINK.
You can actually see this swatched in a post last year featuring my favourite A/W nail polishes here - LINK - I bought this colour last year because it's such a pretty burgundy shade and I love the formula of these nail polishes, they make your nails look so shiny. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick In Pretty In Nude - £7.99 - Boots - LINK GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick In Red - £6.99 - Superdrug - LINK. 
I love wearing red or burgundy colour lipsticks in A/W but I have also been loving nude colours too for during the day to keep my make up natural recently.
The Bourjois rouge edition lipsticks are so creamy and moisturizing for day wear whereas the GOSH velvet touch lipstick is more perfect for the evening as it's more of a matte formula and lasts a bit longer.

So all these bits above are what you would normally find on my face and nails this A/W15.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and maybe even found something you wouldn't mind trying.
