Autumn is one of my favourite seasons, there's nothing I love more than warm cosy nights in with a hot chocolate and of course going from vibrant bright shades to dark rich opulent shades.
When it comes to dark lip colours, I don't tend to wear them during the day as they're quite over powering however if I'm going out for a special occasion, that's when I'm more likely to pop on a dark red/plum. My favourite two colours have to be Apocalips Matte - Meteoric Matte which is a gorgers matte lacquer. I did a review and swatched the range which you can read here if you missed it. Last but not least, another product by Rimmel which is the Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 30 which came out a few months ago.
I love wearing dark nail polishes during this time of year, I love dark browns, blacks and reds. I am definitely a seasonal nail colour gal meaning I wear darks during Autumn/Winter and brights for Spring/Summer. Chanel - Black Satin is a gorgeous pigmented black, and I love OPI - Just a little Rosti at this which is a dark red almost burgundy.
When it gets colder, I enjoy wearing heavier, long-wear makeup because during the hotter months, I tend to wear light makeup because it just melts off my face and I like to keep it a little natural. So I love wearing long-wear gel eye liners, the Bobbi Brown one is an old face of mine. I used to wear this a few years ago, it's long-wear, easy to glide on and pigmented. The same applies to foundation, a little cheat as I've been wearing this since August, but loving the Mac Studio Fix Foundation in NC35. During summer I was wearing Mac F+B but I've switched over to enjoy a fuller coverage.
Those are my favourite picks for Autumn, what are yours?
