Go to makeup // Autumn Edition

I've jumped on the autumn makeup band wagon with ease this year! And I'm thoroughly enjoying berry lips and nails. So I thought I'd share with you the makeup I've been reaching for lately.

Loreal True Match Genus.
I picked this up last week and I've been using it ever since. I quite like this, its a medium to full coverage cream, foundation. It claims to be a concealer, foundation, primer and powder in one. I don't know about that, I mean I've still had to conceal my dark circles! But it definitely has a matte finish that you would expect from a powder. I have the shade 4 beige which is perfect match for my skin tone.

Urban Decay Naked skin concealer
If you've read many of my posts before this will be no surprise! I love love love this stuff! I wont bang on about it to much, but this is amazing, conceals everything, highlights, and blends amazingly!

Collection Highlight and Sculpt Contour Kit
This, hands down has to be the best drugstore contour kit I've used (to date). I especially love the contour shade, its ever so slightly on the warmer side which I find suits me better. You can see my full review of this here.

MUA Blush in the shade Candyfloss
This gives me a subtle wash of colour to go with any look. Since I've been loving a bold lip I don't want to much colour on my cheeks and this is perfect for that barely there finish.

Benefit Watts Up highlighter
The glow this gives me is just beautiful. I like to apply this on the centre of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, across the cheek bones and blend for this lit from within glow.

MAC Amber Times Nine eye shadow pallet
I've been loving using Don't tell (3rd row down, far left) all over my lid. I like this eye shadow because it gives a 'well put together' look with out to much effort. I've  been blending this out with Cork (2nd row down, far right) this is the perfect muted brown with a satin finish.

Loreal Volume Million Lashes
I also picked this up last week which you will know if you read my recent Haul post. Not going to lie this isn't the best mascara I've used but its not the worst. It is very lengthening but doesn't add as much volume as I'd like. But hey ho now its opened may as well use it!

Maybelline Colour Sensational Matte Lipstick in the shade Divine Wine
I frigging love this! Its the best drugstore lipstick I've used in while! The formula is so long lasting, great for long working days. Its Creamy, non drying, great pigmentation and the shade is a lovely deep red wine colour, perfect for autumn.

So that's been the makeup I've been reaching for lately. What has been your go to makeup recently?

Until Next time...
