Autumn is my favourite time of year for many many reasons. The fashion and makeup trends that arise this time of year always just do it for me. When i think of a timeless, autumn makeup look, this is the type of look that i love. I went for a berry, pink- toned lip with a red- toned smokey eye for which I used only one eyeshadow. 

I started with the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer to prep the skin. I love this primer and foundation sits beautifully on top of it because of how silky it makes the skin. For foundation I applied one of my all- time faves, Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation mixed in with a tiny bit of the Benefit Dew the Hoola liquid bronzer. This is because I got a new fake tan, got a bit carried away and now my darkest foundation doesn't match me anymore. To brighten the under- eye area and the centre of the face I mixed the Nars Radiant Creamy and the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealers. And then I of course baked these areas of my face with the Coty Airspun Translucent powder to set it all in place. To set the rest of my face I used the Maybelline Matte Maker Powder, then to contour I used the Too Faced Chocolate bronzer and to bronze the face I used the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in bronzed. For highlight I used the Anastasia Glow Kit in That Glow, and then I skipped blush because I felt that another pink or berry colour might be too much.

(Brace yourselves for my 50 million- step brow routine).

For my brows I started with the Benefit Gimme Brow as per usual and then I used a mixture of the Benefit Goof Proof and the Precisely, My brow pencils to create a really nice shape. To darken my brows I used Anastasia medium Brow Powder Duo and then finally I add texture and set them in place with the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brow Pencil. 

For my eyes I started with the Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer and then I set above the crease with white eyeshadow to make sure my eyeshadow blends out really well. I only used one eyeshadow for this look which is the shade Freshly Toasted from the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette. I just applied it, concentrating it closer to my lash line so that when I blended it upwards it didn't go too high. I also put some under my lower lash line as well. I did a winged liner as always using the L'Oreal Super Liner and then I used a few different mascaras to build my lashes up nicely which I always do. My favourites are Benefit Roller Lash, Too Faced Better Than Sex and Maybelline Lash Sensational

For the lips, the main colour I used was the Barry M lip liner in 15 and then I added the tiniest amount of the Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in Obsession to the corner of my lips to add some dimension. 

Hope you love this look as much as I do.
