Autumn/Winter Makeup Ft. Save On Makeup

Friday, October 17, 2014
Autumn is my favourite time of the year for makeup looks, trends and new releases! I love darker autumnal eyeshadow, polishes and dewy foundations. I was kindly allowed to pick a range of products up to the value of £20 from the website Save On Makeup which I have bought from before. Save On Makeup offers huge discounts on makeup and fragrance featuring brands such as Too Faced, Clinique, Maybelline, Pixi, Elisabeth Arden, Urban Decay and many, many more! You can find Save On Makeup on Twitter and Facebook

I picked the following products to create an everyday autumnal makeup look: *Clinique All About Eyeshadow Quad in the shade 'On Safari' (RRP £28, Save On Makeup price £2.99), *Too Faced Better Than Sex Mini Mascara (Black, RRP £9.99, Save On Makeup price £2.99), *Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Smoother Skin Primer (RRP £7.99, Save On Makeup price £4.49), *Pixi Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade 'bebe' (RRP 8.50, Save On Makeup price £1.00), *Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lift And Firm Concealer in the shade '01 ivory' (not currently available).

Starting with the Maybelline primer, I applied a small amount over the skin, it creates an instantly smooth base for makeup but it doesn't feel very greasy or noticeable. Next up, the Elizabeth Arden concealer, I applied it under my eyes and on redness/pores as it works well on both. The concealer is a fantastic match for my pale skin, it blends easily, it has medium coverage and the concealer doesn't look heavy or caky even on my dry skin type. 
Now onto the eyes, I used the Maybelline face primer as an eye primer also, I then used the creamy shimmery shade from the Clinique Quad (lighter shade from the '07 buttered toast' duo) in the inner corner and brow bone as a highlight - the shade works well as a cheek bone highlight too. Using a small brush I lightly applied the darkest green shade (05 on safari single shade) on the outer corner and blended to create green haze. Then with a small angled brush I lined my upper lash line with the bronze shade for definition. I love the combination of forest green and bronze during the autumn/winter months and I think it brings out the green in my eyes.

To finish off the eyes I used the new Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara mini which I have heard so many bloggers rave about! I love the packaging, the mascara formula is very black and it lengthens the lashes well but I don't think it is amazing - although a mini mascara is a great way of trying out the product without forking out for the full size. 

Finally, the lips. During the colder months my lips can be even more dry than they usually are so sometimes wearing lipsticks, stains and lip pencils is not an opinion. I picked the Pixi Lip Lacquer which is glossy enough to virtually hide dryness but it is fairly long lasting and gives a slight berry tint to the lips - perfect for the horrible english autumnal weather. 

Overall, I am so happy with all of the products on the whole and they are all bargains! The Maybelline primer, Clinique quad and Elizabeth Arden concealer have all made it into my daily makeup routine already! If you want to pick up some amazing beauty and fragrance bargains (they have the new Urban Decay perversion mascara on the site) then definitely check out Save On Makeup
