Autumn has to be one of my favourite seasons for makeup. It’s the perfect transition from Summer’s dewy, sun kissed skin, into Winter’s full coverage, matte and heavy makeup. This season’s trend is about having a polished, “no makeup” look. I love this, as you’re just enhancing your natural beauty.

The Base: 

I recommend Urban decay’s One and Done. This isn’t officially a foundation, but everyone uses it as that.

It’ll give you enough coverage to hide any blemishes, but still let your sun kissed skin show through giving you a lovely semi-matte finish.

It’s perfect for all skin types, even with my oily skin, this is probably the only base that I don’t need to set with powder.

If you feel you also need some concealer, only use a tiny amount.



If you’re lucky enough to have full thick brows then all you would need is a brow gel to tidy and set them in place.

For most of us we need a litte pencil or powder. I recommend Benefit’s Precisely My Brow Pencil.

With 6 shades to choose from and a hard, non waxy formula, it’ll help you create perfect polish brows.






Even with a no makeup look, eyeshadow can still help make you look more awake and give your eyes some shape, but stick with nude shades.

I love this palette by NIP+FAB, it’s got a great mix of cool and warm tones, matte and shimmer – it’s practically the perfect palette!

All you need is 2 fluffy blending brushes and use the 4 shades in the top left corner to achieve a natural eye look.



Now if you really want to stay 100% true to the polished no makeup look, then just apply your favourite lip balm, mine is Nuxe Reve de Miel – it’s super nourishing…and tasty!

If you’re a lippy lover like me, then go for nude “your lips, but better” semi matte shades,
