Transitioning from summer to autumn is the perfect chance to refresh your make-up bag. Stylist show you the products you need to see you through the colder months.
But as September hits and we swap our playsuits and sandals for cable knits and ankle boots, we also take it down a notch with the vivid shadows and festival makeup.
That said, giving our multi-coloured palettes a much-earned rest doesn’t mean we need to say goodbye to colour.
In fact, we’ve been playing around with so many stylish autumnal shades that we’re secretly happy the heatwave is over.
From rustic orange eyeshadows to rich plum lipsticks, we’ve got our autumn make-up bags at the ready.
The Eyeshadow: Moroccan Spice Palette by Fenty Beauty, £42
This palette is meant for sizzling summer nights but we love it for glamming up autumn days.
The Moroccan Spice Palette by Fenty Beauty manages to combine shimmery pastel shades with sultry warm brown hues, making it versatile enough for evenings out and days at work.
Swipe terracotta shades across your lids for a neutral daytime look and add glittery browns to transform for the evening.
The Lipstick: Lip Vibes Lip Magnet Lipstick by Giorgio Armani in Vermillion, £30
A vibrant alternative for all autumn occasions, Giorgio Armani’s Lip Vibes Lip Magnet Lipstick in Vermillion has a long-lasting matte finish. Plus, it’s the prettiest shade of maroon that’s just dark enough for the season.
The Lip Gloss: Suqqu Flawless Lip Gloss in Dark Berry, £24
Suqqu’s Flawless Lip Gloss in Dark Berry makes us want to fling our bright summer pinks out the window.
Create a berry-stained look or for a raw, just-been-kissed look, dab at the centr of your lips and gently smudge outwards.
The Foundation: Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Fusion Powder, £40.80
It’s time to show the world how a velvety matte finish is done.
Giorgio Armani’s Neo Nude Fusion Powder will give you a summer glow that’ll get people thinking you’ve just come back from a winter break.
It nails the ‘no-make-up-make-up’ look by transforming from a powder to a light veil-like liquid.
The Primer: Givenchy Prisme Primer, £30
Achieving a flawless finish lies in how you prep your base. This is where Givenchy’s Prisme Primer comes in.
Mattifying and SPF-enhanced, the collection boasts six different colour-correcting primers to best match your skin tone.
Plus the non-greasy finish will keep your make-up in place on the rainiest of autumn days.
The Blush: Shiseido InnerGlow CheekPowder Blush, £30
Shiseido InnerGlow CheekPowder has just enough pigment for a natural pinky flush, without leaving you looking like you’ve just missed your train.
Sweep a light amount of across your cheek bones or blot on the apples of your cheek.
£30, shiseido.co.uk from September 2018
The Highlighter: GlamGlow Glow Powder Palette, £32
With autumn bringing on darker days, there’s even more reason to dip into a highlighter palette.
Glam Glow’s Glow Powder Palette can be swept on for a touch of radiance or layered for a more dramatic glittery look.
It’s a treat for your skin, too, as it contains hyaluronic acid for extra hydration.
The Nail Polish: OPI Como Se Llama?, £13.50
OPI’s Como Se Llama? nails the classic dark berry nail that we always opt for during the latter months of the year.
It’s part of their Peru collection which is inspired by the tastes and landscapes of the South American country. Just a shame it doesn’t come with a plane ticket.
