The Autumnal Makeup Duo

Praise the makeup gods, I think I've found my ideal autumn lip and cheek combination. I'll be the first to admit that as soon as September makes an appearance, I'm craving berry tones, and this year, I took to my makeup bag to see what I could dig up.

I rediscovered the Creamy Matte Lipstick in Razzberry from Bobbi Brown back in October, and instantly fell back in love with it. If anything I love it more second time around. It's my perfect berry shade for day to day wear, without looking too much. As the name suggests, it's both creamy and matte, so it isn't drying like a lot of matte lipsticks. I can wear this all day and stil feel comfortable. Yes, it fades, but not in a patchy way, and I always top up my lipstick throughout the day. I can guarantee that this will get a lot of use this year.

Blush was the area I thought I was lacking. But after clearing through my makeup collection, I found this beauty from Maxfactor. I picked up a few of the Crème Puff Blushes when they were first released but totally forgot about this one, Gorgeous Berries. These blushes are so soft and blendable, they are so easy to apply and wear. They're quite pigmented so a little goes a long way, but I can quite easily fix it if I'm a little heavy handed. I'd definitely recommend swatching these, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

When I tried pairing these two together, I was pleasantly surprised. They're almost identical in colour. They compliment each other really well, and really tie my makeup together, I think. I already know I'll wear this combination over and over again throughout autumn and winter.

What are you favourite autumnal colours? Anything I should have a look at? Autumn shades are my favourite, I'm always on the lookout for new possible favourites.
Until next time,
