For the past 6 months a lot of us have not been experimenting with makeup, why should we when people are only seeing us through a zoom call. Now things are heading slightly back to normal, it is time to dust off your eyeshadow palettes for those perfect autumn looks.
It may still feel pointless, even when we do venture outside, most of your face is covered by a mask. However, putting on your favourite makeup look can lift up your mood and make you feel more confident.
The colder months can leave your face feeling dull and dry. This is an easy fix, apply a hydrating moisturiser daily, why not swap your matte foundation for a dewy finish. Another way to create a beautiful glow is by adding a liquid highlighter, just blend into the high points of your face and watch it shine!
Bright red lips
Our all-time favourite go-to, the bright red lip has always been a classic and it looks good on everyone, it can easily spice up your usual makeup routine. This year it might be wise to opt for a matte lipstick, because a glossy red lipstick and a mask may not be the best combo.
Colourful eyeshadows & liners
Colour does not just have to be for summer, it can be fun to experiment with different colours on your eyes and it can make a boring winter makeup look more exciting. Great for the (hopefully) upcoming party season, this look will add contrast to any outfit.
It would not be Autumn without a smoky eye and a dark lipstick shade, this look screams spooky season. Whether it is a Halloween look or your everyday style, it takes confidence to pull off dark makeup, but we think it looks amazing.
Hopefully, we have restored your faith in makeup and you now have the confidence to dive into your makeup bag, or even make new purchases. Try a new look this season, even if it is just for a zoom call or trip to the supermarket.
