Top Drugstore Autumn Skin Picks♥


Oh I love Autumn, don't you? The weather starts to turns, the leaves fall, Christmas is just round the corner and best of all, makeup choices change to those beautiful, dewy, looks that you can only get away with in Autumn. So, to celebrate the arrival of Autumn, although a little late, I am going to share my top skin autumnal makeup picks from the drugstore. Enjoy!


I love a cream blush in the Autumn as it can help to give much more of a dewy look, as if you are flushing from the brisk cold weather, and I like that. The way I tend to apply this is just by dabbing a really small amount into my skin with my ring finger, and then blending with the foundation brush I used if necessary. Using the used foundation brush will help to make it look slightly more natural as it will blend it in more with your skin tone. This one is only £2 - an absolute bargain in my books!

Again, this is another cream product. I find that this bronzing stick is great as it does have shimmer and it also blends so well, helping to highlight but also contour your cheek bones, however if you were to use this, just note that only a small amount is necessary as you could end up looking like a glitter ball at an 80's disco. I like to either use a real techniques expert face brush or a real techniques contour brush to blend this product depending on how heavy I want it. You could even use this as a beautiful bronze cream eye shadow, and so for just £4, this product is an all round holy grail for me!

I just had to include this product in this post because this is basically my must have when it comes to contour! With a highlight and contouring powder, this kit is perfect for adding a bit of colour to your face, which is certainly something I do not have in the cold Autumn time! The subtle highlight can also add radiance to your face when needed, which again is also something I definitely lack in the Autumn months! At first glance I would also class this as a high end product as the packaging is stable and secure and the product blends amazingly well; total must have for me! I've even hit pan on both sides, and that hardly happens because I love trying new things so often, so it obviously must be well loved!

For me, Autumn is for sure the time when my skin needs the most coverage. The cold seems to make my skin so red and blotchy, and so a foundation is definitely a must have for me. At the moment, the Rimmel lasting finish foundation is the one I am using as I am going through quite an oily stage, but if your skin is more dry then I wouldn't say this would be the best foundation to use as it is quite thick and does cling to dry areas. Otherwise, for any other skin type I think this foundation would do the job nicely as it gives quite a high coverage but is still subtle enough to get away with for daily wear. Its also really cheap, too! If you have a body care store near you, have a look in there as I have found that this product can actually be considerably cheaper from there.

Top 3 Autumn Drugstore Eye Picks♥


Autumn really is the time that your eyeshadow can get creative. Gold bases with plum crease colors, even the a classic grey smokey eye, I feel like it really is the time to go different to that everyday bore that I tend to stick to. Since Autumn began a couple of months ago, I have been loving a fair few different eye products from the drugstore. I do feel that it is very easy to get stuck into using the products on the pricier side, when in actual fact there really are some great bargains out on the high street that need more recognition.

Tanya Burr's new collection went down like a storm with the beauty lovers recently and this Hollywood eye shadow palette that was released includes the perfect Autumn goldy/browny colours. The palette enables you to achieve a beautiful gold smoky eye to pair with a bold berry lip at this time of the year.
We reviewed this fully over on our blog here.

This has been a favourite of mine for months any way, and so when Autumn begins to arrive, I cannot wait to put it back into my everyday routine. It's beautifully shimmery golden colour is perfect underneath a gold smoky eye, and it blends amazingly. For only £4.99, you cannot go wrong. Mine is very nearly all gone and so a trip to Boots calls I think!

The combination of the twelve shades in this palette are just Autumn all over, including some muted tones, some golds, some plums and some beautiful browns. If you think about it, all in all, if shadows of a similar colour were to be bought from MAC, singularly, it would come to around £136, yet this palette is only £4.00, and of a very close quality! Buying higher priced products is some times necessary, but, at times, I love to experiment with those on the cheaper side.
