Guide To Wearable Autumn Beauty
The beauty pages are awash with some of nature’s most beautiful shades this autumn. From russet, to Bronze and gold, colour is definitely ‘in’ in a big way. The trick to making this look work is in intelligently layering your products; keep skin light, focus the use of autumn colours on one area of your face, eyes or lips and blend colours together really well for a tonal finish mother nature would be proud of. Follow our guide to getting the Autumn Bronze look right!
1. Mix concealer with a tinted serum or moisturiser by blending a few strokes of concealer in the palm of your hand with the cream/serum (the warmth of your hand will soften the concealer so it blends together evenly) for a finish the makes the most of fading summer skin-colour. The effect should be natural with a sheen; neither too tanned nor too matte so avoid powders and heavy foundation. Conceal any areas that need further coverage (read a full guide to concealing here).
2. Blend together a gold and pink eye-shadow across the lid, using a big eye-shadow brush to smudge the colours together. Take the gold across and up the socket line towards the brow-bone and use a soft, deep brown to lightly define the brows.
Margaret’s Tip: To add a little more glamour and focus attention on your mouth, try more neutral shadows like Sand and Gold on the lids with bolder colour on your lips.
