The Autumn Edit

You know what's been irritating me? In winter we wrote The Winter Edit, in spring we wrote The Spring Edit, and what did we do in summer? We forgot to write our Summer Edit. Nonetheless, we are not skipping our autumn edit so here it is!

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE | £38.50 you can buy it here

I can't remember the last time I mentioned this beauty but believe me I use it all the time. I think this palette is gorrrrgeous for autumn because of the golden, warm toned shadows in the palette. I love using Sidecar and Toasted, it creates a beautiful dark taupe eye.

SLEEK AU NATUREL PALETTE | £8.99 you can buy it here

A much more affordable eyeshadow option - this palette is something I bought two autumns ago now and I'm still using it everyday (I use the shade 'Bark' for my brows). The shadows are incredibly pigmented and blendable for the price tag and have such a gorgeous range of autumnal shadows from dark purples to browns from shimmers to mattes.

SEVENTEEN DEFINE & CONQUER CONTOUR KIT | £5.99 you can buy it here

Since purchasing so many new contour products, this kit hasn't been getting as much love as it should have had. Despite this neglect, I can't wait to start using it again. The contour shade is not too warm nor grey, and blends beautifully for a natural look.The highlight is matte and perfect for brightening under the eye. You can read a full review here.

SLEEK BLUSH 'ROSE GOLD' | £5 you can buy it here

This blush screams autumn to me, its a gorgeous apricot pink with lots of gold shimmer. The pigmentation is phenomenal for the price, like most Sleek products, and it wears really well throughout the day. Recently I've been trying to wear my blushers more as its always a step I'm wary about due to my naturally red cheeks. 

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM 'CANNES' | £5.50 you can buy it here

I was looking through my lip products and I couldn't find a lippie more suited to autumn than this. I know I've mentioned it quite a bit recently, but it really is perfect. Cannes is a mid-brown colour with a matte finish, but very comfortable and creamy on the lips (as the name suggests.)

MAC LIPSTICK 'VELVET TEDDY' | £15.50 you can buy it here

Everyone knows this lipstick, and I dislike talking about it on the blog because I never know what to say as I've said it all before!! Its a pink brown, wearable, matte, moisturising. 100% worth every penny spent on it. For swatches, see this post.

What are your autumn essentials?



  1. NYX Cannes is my absolute favourite! Such a pretty shade! I am off to the Sleek website now, thanks for your recommendations :)


  2. I really need to add Velvet Teddy to my lipstick collection; it is such a pretty shade!

  3. Everything looks so Autumnal! I am so excited for Autumn to actually begin xx

  4. I'm always neglecting my Naked palettes! I really need to pull them out this season. It's too pretty (and expensive) to just sit inside my makeup drawer collecting dust! Great picks btw. I've been meaning to pick up Velvet Teddy!
