Autumn inspired makeup look: Bronzy eyes and a red lip

Well hello to you my reader chums! As we're now in autumn, its the time to bring out those darker lips and darker eye makeup! Today I'm going to show you my spin on an autumnal makeup look, I hope you like it!
This is the look:
 


All the products used:

 
For my base, I kept it the same as my everyday makeup because even though coming into autumn/winter people usually go for heavier makeup in comparison to summer, I always prefer a lighter base. I concealed my under eyes and any blemishes with the Collection 'lasting perefection' concealer then buffed in Maybelline's BB cream all over my face for some added coverage. To mattify the skin I used my favourite powder, Rimmel's 'Stay matte' and then for contour, highlight and blush, I used the sleek face form kit in 'light'.
 
 
Onto eyes, to prime them I used the Urban Decay primer potion. The two palettes I used in this look were 'Smoked' by Urban Decay and 'Undress me' by MUA.  To go all over the lid, I applied 'Shade 7' from the MUA palette and for some definition, I packed the shade 'Backdoor' from the Urban Decay palette on the outer corner of my eyes and blended it out.

 
For eye liner and mascara, I used my favourite duo at the moment which is the L'oreal super liner and Rimmel's 'Wonder'full' mascara. I lined the upper lash line with a medium sized line and winged it out for some added definition, then curled my lashes and applied a few coats of mascara.
 
Close up of the eyes:

Once the base and eyes are complete its time for the lips which is my favourite part of this look!  I wanted more red and darker lips for this season and picked this lipstick up recently. I'm in love with this colour and thought it would look beautiful paired with bronzy eyes and winged liner. This is from the Rimmel's Kate Moss line in shade 01.

 
Here's another few pictures of the final look:


Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! I think the bronzy eyes really compliment the red lips nicely and I'm going to get a lot of use out of this look in the next few weeks. I'm on the hunt for more darker lipsticks such as berry tones so if any of you have any recommendations, I'd be really happy if you left them below :)  
 
As I've recently put up a autumn haul, later this week I'm going to put an autumn inspired OOTD featuring some of those clothes, therefore keep you eyes peeled for that! <3
