Whenever I think of Autumn makeup, I immediately think of warm tones, dark lips and flushed cheeks. My everyday makeup is usually pretty basic - soft, neutral or pink toned eyeshadow with nude lips. So when Autumn rolls around, I like switching things up to suit the season!
I tend to use more moisturiser on my skin as the weather gets colder. My skin is already quite dry, so it gets a lot worse and needs more looking after in the Autumn/Winter! I tend to keep my base makeup the same all year round, unless I try something different and love it!

I usually go for warm, orange/red tones in the Autumn. I definitely suit warm shades rather than cool! My go to favourites are:
Urban Decay Naked Heat palette (especially the shades Lumbre, Dirty Talk and Scorched).
Jeffree Star Blood Sugar palette (especially the shades Cherry Soda, Fresh Meat and Blood Sugar).
Too Faced Enchanted Forest palette (especially the shades Christmas Sweater, Reindeer Games, Bauble, Yule Log, Cinnamon Spice and Mrs Claus).
LIPS In terms of lipstick, I usually get braver in the Autumn/Winter and get all of the dark shades out! I LOVE a red/burgundy lip for a bright pop of colour in dark Autumn nights. Some of my favourites are:
NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen (which is the most beautiful dark burgundy shade).
MAC Ruby Woo (an absolute classic!) See my MAC LIPSTICK COLLECTION blog post for more of my favourite staple MAC lipsticks!
I tend to use less bronzer in the Autumn/Winter and instead add a little more blusher. My everyday blusher and bronzers are:
Benefit Hoola Bronzer - I've used this since I was around 16 and haven't found a better bronzer yet!
What's your go-to Autumn makeup?
