My Autumn/Winter Face

Makeup trends are eternally changing but generally every autumn/winter we know what’s coming. I’m not a big follower of trends be it fashion or beauty, but I think it’s a good idea to slightly change your warpaint with the seasons! Below are just a few ideas to update your makeup as winter draws in!

Subtle contouring.

I think we can all agree that when we hit the colder months it’s time to step away from the bronzer as much as we hate to admit it. It’s time for more stone colour based contouring shades which can softly define your face without adding too much of a summer glow. I’ve just bought MAC’s blush in ‘Harmony’ which is absolutely perfect.

Big lashes.

In winter I’m all about lashings of my favourite volumizing mascara to make up for my pale complexion. You can opt for feathery lashes with the help of some falsies or like me you can go with for the clumpy-er look which adds an edge.

Dark lips.

Oranges and pinks step aside, it’s all about berry shades and deep reds now. There are hundreds of posts on the go to shades but my favourite is Lina Mar’s (here) which is set out so beautifully. You can also read my review here on the Kate Moss lipstick which as you will all know is one of the most popular shades for this time of year.

    The subtile contouring is a great tip! I just bought a new dark colored blush today 🙂
