Makeup tutorial: Copper eyes and berry lips ❤️

Well hello to you my reader chums! With Autumn completely among us, I've fully embraced the whole vibe, cosying up in layered clothes and the typical makeup style I adore, which I'm going to share with you today. For this season when the leaves fall off the trees and the weather gets chillier, I love to wear a fuller coverage base, layered with contoured cheeks, copper eyes and my top feature, the beautiful berry lips.

Here's an overview of the makeup:
To create this look, these are all the products I used:
In the colder months, I like to wear a higher coverage and prefer to reach for a foundation instead of my usual BB cream. I then pair it with a brightening concealer and set the overall base with powder. For brightening, I like to focus under my eyes because when waking up early in darkness (the worst thing about Winter), I tend to be rather tired, so whacking on some of this surely does the trick!
(Products are listed below)
Base: 
Maybelline's Baby skin primer
Rimmel's Match perfection in shade 'Classic ivory'
Rimmel's Wake me up concealer
Rimmel's Stay matte powder in shade 'Silky beige'

To contour, I love this Estee Lauder number as not only does it help define the cheekbones, it also gives a top bronze glow, perfect now the summer tan has faded. For highlighting, I dust the Sleek blusher over my cheeks and add the creamy shade on the high points of my cheeks and brow bone.
Contour and highlight:
Estee Lauder Bronze goddess bronzer
Sleek face form kit - blush and highlighter

When it comes to brows, I like them to be rather natural and therefore tend to stick with a powder. I've chosen this L'oreal eye shadow which I dust through the sparse areas and finish with a clear gel.
Brows:
L'oreal's single eye shadow in shade '106'
Rimmel's clear brow gel

One of my favourite parts of the look has to be the eyes. I love warmer tones for this season especially copper as it reminds me of leaves falling off the trees. I apply 'Amber lights' all over the lids and darken it up with 'Temptation' in the outer corner.
Eye shadow:
Urban Decay's primer potion
Mac's eye shadow in 'Amber lights' and 'Temptation'

To complete the eyes I use a combination of my favourite eye liner winging it out and mascara. For top lashes I choose the Maybelline one and to lengthen my bottom ones, I pick this sample sized Mac mascara.
Eyes continued:
L'oreal's super liner
Maybelline's Lash sensational mascara
Mac's False lashes in extreme black

The best part of this tutorial for me is certainly the lips. One of my highlights in Autumn has to be berry/burgundy lipsticks, many of which I own! I find that its more acceptable to wear these on a daily basis in the cooler months and that they pair with Autumnal outfits so much better. Today I picked Mac's Diva, a new addition to my collection I'm very much obsessed with. It's slightly vampier than the usual berry lip yet absolutely gorgeous and I think paired with the copper eyes it goes perfectly, screaming Autumn.
Lips:
Mac's Diva - Matte finish

Here's some close ups of the final look:


I hope you enjoyed this Autumn inspired makeup tutorial. What's your go to Fall look?
