Autumn make-up picks and FOTD

Hi everyone,
 I can't believe it is autumn already! 
I quite like colder months, because I have an excuse to wear cosy jumpers, cardigans and thick knitted socks :) It is also an excuse to buy some new makeup or shop the stash :) 
I picked a couple of things I personally think will be perfect for fall and I also created my autumn look with them. My favourite must be the Korres lip butter in wild rose- it is such a beautiful shade and it is very moisturising. If I want even more colour I use the Lip Boom by MUA in a shade called It's a situation. It is a warm and deep burgundy shade with a matte finish, but it isn't drying and it applies beautifully. I will review it separately this week. 
I also picked the MUA Heaven & Earth palette, because I absolutely love all the neutral, earthy shades and I think they are perfect for Autumn. I can't live without blushers and as soon as the summer is over I go for darker shades on my cheeks. I picked the Liz Earle Blusher in Peony for this look and I will be wearing it very often for the next couple of months :) The last thing I am loving at the moment is a mineral eyeshadow by Inika in shade Gold Dust- it is a gorgeous shimmering gold colour and it looks perfect in the inner corner or allover the lid.
 In colder months I go for medium to full coverage, so I will be using foundations like: Liz Earle, Lancome Teint Miracle and Vichy Dermablend. I will review the last one soon, because it is my saviour when I have breakouts. 

 What are your autumn picks this year? I would love to hear some recommendations.

    1. I am always scared that burgundy will look too vampy, but the Korres lip butter is perfect for Autumn.

      I tried to do a video on my winged liner, but my camera wasn't focusing :/ I might try to do it in pictures or as a gif. xo
