My Autumn Current Everyday Makeup

[ad contains gifted products] I think it's safe to say that Autumn has finally arrived- and whilst I do have all my windows currently open and it's not cold enough just yet for the big old' coats, I've been bringing in my more wintery makeup to my everyday routine. 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer - When it comes to Autumn the season is finally changing and so is my skin. During Summer I don't tend to suffer with as much dry skin as I do in Autumn. I've been using this Smashbox primer for quite a while now and I just don't think I can ever go back. It works so well with my foundation (below) leaving it hydrated and a nice smooth canvas for my skin. Silicone primers are a nightmare when it comes to my dry skin, so this lightweight and liquid formula is perfect. 

Nars Sheer Glow - From Summertime where I solely use my Bareminerals Complexion Rescue which is super light, in the Autumn and Winter I prefer a bit more coverage on a day to day. I purchased this foundation for a wedding a while back and I've been pretty much wearing it everyday. With a good primer this lasts pretty much all day on my skin, doesn't look cakey (I find it's best with a damp beauty sponge) and I'm glad I just went and purchased a higher-end foundation  - I used to buy drugstore ones and went through so many of them as I wasn't super impressed, but this really has become an everyday staple. 

e.l.f Hydrating Camo Concealer  - For a £6 concealer I'm yet to find one at the drugstore that I like as much. This has a great medium coverage for under my eyes and by buying the lightest one it really helps brighten them. I don't find this cakey at all and although it does need setting underneath, I find it really lasts through the day. 

NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Powder  - This was a last minute airport purchase where I was panicking looking for a good baking/loose powder. I used to have the best one from Maybelline Fit Me that was loose and you could only get in the U.S which sadly got stolen. However, I didn't have such big hopes for this powder but it does a fantastic job at baking when I use it. Whilst the shade I got 'Medium' is a touch too dark (only shade left) I just go a little less heavy with my bronzer and thankfully it still matches my neck! 

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand 'Pillow Talk'  - I got this in a recent Charlotte Tilbury haul which you can read here and I've been obsessed with it. This has pretty much taken over my use of highlighter and blusher since I got it. If you're looking for a bit of glow during the Autumn/Winter dull months, you need to get your hands on this. The applicator looks like a little sponge and applies a delicate amount over your skin leaving a lovely glow which I buff in using a Kabuki style brush. My one thing to let you all know, ensure your tube is turned to "off" if you get one a plane to save most of your product exploding! 

Mac Cosmetics 'Velvet Teddy'  - My Velvet Teddy is pretty much entirely gone but I've been loving this with the Bareminerals Lipgloss Balm 'Clarity'*   together. Whilst I love the neutral colour of Velvet Teddy, I'm much more into my glossier lips recently, so by adding this clear gloss on top it gives it a much fuller look. These Bareminerals lipglosses are incredible and one of my favourite launches of theirs! 

Bareminerals Gen Nude Natural Eyes Palette*  - Usually I tend to bring out the usual Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette (although that definitely needs chucking as it's soooo old). I've actually parked using my Too Faced Natural Eyes as well in favour for this fantastic little 6 shadow palette. I use the matte shades 'Sandstone' and 'Native' all over my eyes and then either 'Believer' or 'Tribe' in the middle as a shimmery shade. They are so easy to blend and the palette has a fantastic mirror as well, the best one for travelling!

Let me know in the comments below what you've been wearing this Autumn and can't go this season without.
