The Autumn/Winter Everyday Makeup Update.

 The other day I decided to paint my nails a rather vibrant shade of pink ... as soon as I slicked on that last bit of polish, I instantly regretted my decision. It was cold and grey outside and I had Barbie pink nails... it just didn't add up.

If you've seen my Everyday Makeup Tutorial, you'll know I slap on a fair bit of the Estée Lauder Raisins Palette on my eyelids, along with a generous helping of the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Spicey all over my cheeks. My pink nails looked odd... so why should it be any different for my face..?!

So... say hello to my new, improved everyday makeup for Autumn/Winter.

I've switched up my eye makeup look by swapping my beloved Raisins palette for the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze and, yep that limited edition NARS palette (probably should have cleaned it before taking a photograph...) to create a daytime-friendly smokey eye.

Taking the Color Tattoo across the entire lid, I then blend the lightest shade in the NARS palette (Allahambra) into the inner third of the eye, and mix Galapagos and Coconut Grove (2nd row, left and middle respectively) before blending this into the crease and outer corner.

My trust Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen creates my signature kitten flick...

With British weather being unpredictable at the best of times, I've decided to switch to a rain-friendly product... at the moment, I'm loving the MaxFactor Clump Defy Waterproof Mascara.

Here are the eyes up close:

Next up: face.

In my tutorial, you saw me use the NARS Bronzing Powder in Casino as a contour shade... I'm now using it all over the high points of my face to give my dull skin a little more of a healthy glow.

I've swapped my pink blush for a terracota shade...

I'm aware of just how terrifying this looks in the pan, but NARS Blush in Liberte goes beautifully with the bronzed-look I'm going for this season.

Aside from these changes, I've kept everything else exactly the same.

Have you changed your everyday makeup look this season?


  1. The blush looks a lovely shade and your makeup flawless! Waterproof mascara is always a pain to get off, so I use regular hoping it doesn't rain (and always have an umbrella on hand when it looks cloudy!)...
    For the hotter weather I'd wear more pinky blushes but for fall - bronzy-orange shades are a go to!
    Great Post!

  2. You look stunning, I love entering gold tones in winter with a little bit of white!


  3. Sieht ganz schön an dir aus, bin immer wieder begeistert was für tolle Produkte du benutzt.

  4. Love this make-up look! Your NARS products have got me very jealous!


  5. This is a perfect everyday makeup look :) Mine has changed so much since my first 'everyday makeup' post, think an updated one is definitely in order!
