Transition Makeup // Summer to Autumn

Summer has come to an end here in the Uk. Which, I'm not sad about I love autumn - Berry Lips, chunky knits, candles, blankets.. I just love everything about it! Although I find the transition to autumn makeup can be a bit of a shock. So I've put together some of my favourite makeup which is perfect for late summer and early autumn.


This pallet is perfect for late summer/ early autumn. The mix of warmed toned browns is perfect for creating a brown smoky eye, or subtle hint of colour to go with any lip.

Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze

The pigment and the long lasting formula makes this a winner in my book! This bronzy brown shade is perfect for moving into autumn, either on its swept across the lid or blended with another shade for a more dramatic look. 

Bourjois Colour Band in the shade 02 Brun Dadaiste

This is another bronze brown colour (are you seeing a theme here) that's an eye shadow and eyeliner. This does not smudge or budge for love nor money, perfect for the lower lash line! This is so easy to apply just sweep across the lip and blend out with fingers!


I love Plummy Cheeks in autumn! But for late summer Dusky pinks are a perfect transition colour from colourful corals and baby pinks! My favourites are:

MUA Blusher in Candyfloss

This is ONE POUND! Yes one pound! Its a powder blush which is so easy to apply just sweep and go. This is a beautiful pink shade with purple undertones making it a perfect transition shade.

Revlon cream blush in Charmed Enchantment 150

This is very similar to the MUA blush but more purple toned! The formula of this leaves you with that gorgeous lit from within glow and is just perfect for early autumn.


Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Raplumzel

I absolutely love the formula of this! Its so easy to sweep on and go. Because its a gloss stick it means less maintenance throughout the day. And the shade is a beautiful plum purple, that's super easy to wear.

MAC Taupe (full review here)

 Taupe is a pretty brown, red colour with slight mauve undertones. Its a matte finish which I love for its long lasting formula. This subtle brown perfect for early autumn.

 Maybelline Colour sensational Lipstick in the shade 342 Mauve Mania

This is a lovely pinky - purple shade with mauve undertones, perfect shade for those not wanting an out there completely matte lip. The formula is so cream and comfortable on the lips its just perfect for everyday wear.

What's your favourite transitional makeup?

Until next time..
