Autumn Makeup | Gold Eyes & Berry Lips

Fall makeup look, transitional makeup, summer to autumn makeup look

I love Autumn and autumnal colours and  autumn candles and the autumn weather (although the phrase cold weather is nearly non-existent in Malta). I love it so much that I even dedicated a whole post to it! Since Autumn started a few days ago I thought that it would be quite fitting to change up some of my products. In doing so I rediscovered a few of my old favourites that I had not used in months and I also introduced some new ones.

For this makeup look I used my usual base products of Rimmel foundation and concealer, Essence compact powder and did my usual brow routine. In autumn the summer tan begins to fade so your bonzer becomes your best friend. The Natural Collection bronzing pearls in tropical tan have been my recent favourites as they add a warm glow to the face. A few days ago I visited the newly opened 3ina makeup store and picked up this gorgeous blush in the shade 105. I'm usually all about peach blushers with a hint of shimmer and this muted version makes it perfect to wear in autumn.

As a base for the eyeshadow I applied the Maybelline colour tattoo in permanent taupe all over the lid. Next I applied the brown shade from the H&M nudes eyeshadows palette in the crease and brought it down under my eyes to balance the look. I used to love this palette so much and it used to be a staple in my makeup routine.

On top of my lid I applied the Golden Rose terracotta stardust in 105. It is a lovely golden shimmer powder which I'm still trying to get my head around to what it is actually supposed to be! It's too shimmery to be a bronzer or a blusher and too orange to be a highlighter so I'm just using it as an eyeshadow and it seems to work just fine. To finish the eye look I use the Soap & Glory supercat eyeliner (which I totally forgot to include in the photos) and applied a coat of my favourite Kiko ultra tech curve mascara.

I am a lover of berry lip shades and when I sense the first hint of Autumn I bring out my favourites. While going through my lipstick collection (which has been increasing quite quickly in size) I rediscovered the Rimmel Amethyst Shimmer lipstick which I had totally forgotten that I had. I used to wear it all the time and I had even included it in the first top 5 lip products post. It is not too dark which makes it a perfect transitional shade.

And this is the finished makeup look. It honestly looked so much better in real life but my camera wasn't in the mood to cooperate with me and kept taking blurry photos. Nonetheless, I still think that it looks lovely and I will definitely be wearing similar looks this Autumn.

Side note: Whilst looking for autumnal eyeshadows I noticed that I don't really have a lot of warm toned shades like orangey browns, coppers and auburns in my collection. Do you have any recommendations for palettes that would be perfect for this time?

  4. Here in Cyprus it is still summer and I miss fall so much! However, I started wearing bold lipsticks and I don't care what anyone has to say. It is typically fall isn't it? Haha! The Rimmel lipstick you are wearing is so pretty :)

  10. Aw, your photo looks perfectly fine! And I love the look! I'm definitely looking forward to adding some autumn-flair into my makeup. I wish I could suggest something to you, but I've been using my one ELF palette for a few years now, I don't think it's available anymore. It is really great for fall looks though... :) I hope you find something that works for you!

    PS. I love the colour contrast in these pictures! They're so nice and eye-catching :)

  13. Would like to know more about Malta.. I really don't like everything from wikipedia anyway, I wanna see first hand information/experience about that country.

    The colour contrast is so good. Nice post girl.

  23. Wow, these autumn shades are so lovely and have me even more excited about the season! To be honest, I only ever experiment with lip colors because I just don't have the patience to do a whole eye makeup look, though when I do, I LOVE the way it looks. Man, I just wish I could snap my fingers and get a complete look, haha. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing, you look absolutely gorgeous! I hope you have a great start to your week!
