Lil Miss Seasonal: Autumn beauty +

Autumn for me is probably my least favourite season - it's not as fun as Summer, as magical as Winter or as pretty as Spring. However - it is definitely beautiful in its' own right.

Now that it's Autumn I tend to wear different colours of makeup. Instead of bright, coral colours, I am now more attuned to colours such as maroons, reds, hot pinks, purples and nudes.

Here are the products that I've been wearing recently / will be wearing a lot more in the coming months:
Barry M Nail Paint in Vivid Purple, Ciate Paint Pot in Kitten Heels and Star Gazer Nail Polish in no.313
No names, but the last one on the right is called 'Extravagance'.

Mac Refined Golden Bronzer.
Mac Quad (Top Left to Bottom Right: Mac Tempting, Satin Taupe, Embark and Black Tied)
Victoria Jackson lip gloss, Mac lip gloss in Pinkular, Elf lipstick in Gipsy and Bobbi Brown lipstick in Carnation.


1)Barry M Nail Polish in Vivid Purple, Ciate Paint Pot in Kitten Heels and Star Gazer Nail Polish in no. 313 - these colours are so pretty and shimmery - PERFECT for Autumn.

2) Mini OPIs (unfortunately, none of these have the names on the bottle) but the first four are from the 2009 Christmas collection and the last one is called 'Extravagance'. All are such pretty colours for Autumn and Winter.

3) Mac Refined Golden Bronzer - this has subtle hints of glitter in it and you can wear it in ANY season.It's definitely more 'deep' and 'warm' than other bronzers.

4)Mac Eye shadows (Top Left to Bottom Right: Mac Tempting, Satin Taupe, Embark and Black Tied) - I tend to go for deeper colours during the Autumn and Winter months. I love Satin Taupe all over the lid and Embark on the outer corners for a 'Fall' look. I also love Tempting all over the lid and Black Tied on the outer corners for a simple smokey eye.

5) Victoria Jackson lip gloss (no name on it), Mac Lip gloss in Pinkular (2009 Xmas collection), Elf lipstick in Gipsy and Bobbi Brown lipstick in Carnation. The Victoria Jackson lip gloss is the perfect red for my lips. It really brightens up my face. The Mac lip gloss in Pinkular looks great on photos, the Elf lipstick can be a bit too much during the day but I tend to dab only a little bit on for a hint of hot pink on my lips and the Bobbi Brown lipstick looks good in all seasons. It's the perfect nude for my lips <3 

Is there anything you do differently during Autumn?
