Autumn Eyes

 Dupes, dupes everywhere. The MUA Undress Me Too Palette is a knock-off Naked 2 and I believe the Colour Works blush set is a really old dupe for Nars. Then you have the Bodyshop Brow & Liner Kit, Bourjois Contour Kit, Collection Illuminating Concealer, H&M Eyeshadow Brush and Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara,

I am not one of those people who gets excited for Autumn because 'ooh layers' and 'jumpers and scarves' and I have never had a pumpkin spice latte. Summer is my happy time, but I have to admit I like to be able to wear makeup without it sweating off my face or smudging in sea water.

So I suppose I am slightly grateful for the changing season for the fact that I can decorate my eyelids with colourful powder. I quite like a gradient effect across my lids so cream to golden-brown to bronze is easy enough for my amateur hands to achieve. Up my brow game, add some bronzer and a peachy tint to my cheeks and voila. I usually leave out lipstick when I have a lot going on elsewhere on the face but I guess I could have used my Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple. Eyeshadow is my favourite thing for tired September mornings because you don't need half as much precision as you would with eye liner.

Don't we all prefer makeup in Autumn?
