Transition your makeup for Autumn : Everyday micro-changes

Fall is finally here. My favourite season. The slightly colder weather, the soft angora-blend cardigan paired with burgundy stained lips and plum blushes... I just love it. Obviously you can't wear bold berry lipstick everyday or dark vampy lips or even deep warm brown smokey eyes. But you can make small changes in your everyday normal makeup look that show this warm autumn feel. 

About eyes

If your everyday go to eye look is totally minimal. Let's say... black or brown eyeliner on the upper lashline and mascara? What can i do to perk this look up a bit ? 


For blue/green eyes : Coppery or warm golden-bronze eyeliners really enhance light coloured eyes and make them pop, it just adds more drama as the bronze and orangey coppery tones really accent the eyes. Example look : Black eyeliner on the top lashline, black mascara and a copper toned eyeliner on the buttom lashline. This can works for green/blue/gray-blue and in general light eyes. (Keep in mind copper/warm tones on the eyes are huge for this season)

If you are an eyeshadow girl then opt for a copper or bronze shimmery eyeshadow on the lid (don't do a shimmery crease colour - add something matte there or nothing). 


For darker eyes (light/dark brown or hazel eyes) :Bronze and coppery tones compliment darker eyes as well but my personal favourite is plum/purple. I think brown eyes and hazel eyes look phenomenal with plum-burgundy tones. Example look: Black mascara and deep plum eyeliner on the top lashline (or you can go with black on the upper lashline and plum on the bottom lashline). 

Brown eyes look amazing in any colour so this is not a huge dilemma, you can choose plums/purples/orange/copper/gold/bronze. It is really up to you. Just think outside the box, don't choose black again. 

Amazing trick : If you have hazel or brown eyes with the tiniest hint of green in them, go for plums. Plums just enhance every tini-tiny amount of green you have in your eyes.

Again if you are a eyeshadow girl, choose light plum and brown purple shades. You can even smudge your eyeliner before as a base for the shadows.

About lips

Plum/wine/berry tones are huge for this season. Depending on your style and the occasion, you can go light or dark. 

For bold ladies : Keep the eyes super simple with black eyeliner and mascara, the blush neutral not too pink and you go girl with va va voom lips. Leighton Meester's look is exceptional! 





For not so bold girls : My personal favourite for everyday is tinted lipbalm. Sometimes you can't be bothered by lipstick so why not go the easy way ? Top picks : Korres Plum/Prune Lip butter and Korres Pomegranate (Purple) Mandarin Lip Balm SPF 15
