Summer has disappeared, autumn has arrived and with it a whole lot of cold weather. However, autumn does bring some positives, the countdown to Christmas begins, Halloween is around the corner and the autumnally brown and orange colours give you a great excuse to purchase some new makeup to work for the season.

Here are 5 autumn make-up essentials you need to have in your make-up bag this autumn:

1. A Dark Purple Lipstick

With Halloween around the corner and the autumn nights getting darker and darker, what better way to add a pop of colour to your life than with a dark purple lipstick! Shades such as dark berry or blueberry from many different brands are perfect.

Having a dark but glamourous and colourful lipstick can make you feel like a million dollars no matter what the weather is like. Have this in your make up bag and you will always be ready for a spur of the moment night out.


2. Flawless, Dependable, Fabulous Foundation

No matter what brand you wear, Dior, Rimmel, No7 or any of the others, make sure that you have a flawless foundation to last you from now right through to winter. Having a base coat that perfectly matches your skin tone, creates a good base for other make-up and makes you feel good all year round.

If you are looking to find a great foundation make sure you ask for some samples, try a range of brands and don’t compromise on price. No matter whether it is the cheapest or most expensive foundation it has to be just right for you.


3. Brows to Be Proud Of

Whether you are out and about, sat at home with the family or at work, having the perfect brows can make the difference between you looking like you’ve just got out of bed and you appearing as fresh as a daisy. This autumn you can tone down the brows but keep them looking groomed and maintained with a little colour each morning.

None of us want to be looking like part of a comedy sketch show with brows stretching from one side of your face to the other, but a little bit of maintenance and colour on the brows never hurts anyone.

4. Smokey Eyes

The classic smokey eye is perfect for any season and any situation. During autumn, using earthy tones to obtain the perfect eye shadow smokey eye will complement the browns and oranges of the season.

For an extra little brightening affect in amongst your smokey eye, add a bright shimmery powder to the inner corner of the eye to make sure your eyes look bold and bright even on a dark autumn night.


5. Nude Nail

Last but not least on this list of must have autumn make up essentials has to be the nude nail colour. When deciding on how to paint or which colour to paint your nails, make sure that nude is a high contender. This means that you nails will compliment any outfit choice, contrast the darker autumnally make-up and look great too.

It might not be a part of your make up but having great nails can be a fantastic way to feel great this autumn season even if they spend most of their time hidden in your gloves.
