The Autumn Edit

Now that my ‘Autumn Style Staples’ are done and dusted, I’m turning my attention back to beauty. Time to snap shut my bronzed palettes, retire my glow givers for the season and reach again for the more burnished tones in my stash. Of course autumn makeup on my terms is still a neutral affair; but I’m tweaking it a little. Adding a bit of copper to my usual brown eyeshadows, a light wash of plum to my peachy lips and going for something a little more taupe toned to my apples. Just slight adjustments to my colour choices to bring me in line with the crisp, but not too cold (yet) outdoors – nothing to be scared of. Compared to my other seasonal makeup collations I’ve mixed this one up, adding a few products from outside the makeup category that may come in rather handy over the next few months. So welcome to the complete autumn beauty edit. VDM stylée.

  • lizzy shaw

  • Marina

    Gorgeous colours, great for autumn. I love Mavala nail polishes, the quality is good and it stays for 3-4 days on my nails without chipping. Will look for these new colours! Great video!

  • Sandy

    Looooove the rimmel palette, that’s being added to my Boots shopping list! xx

  • Harriet

    I have Mac Blushbaby which is meant to be a good dupe for Tarte’s Exposed blush.

  • Lia

    I think NARS Douceur (a favorite of mine) is very similar to Tarte Exposed.

  • merredee

    I just love fall style and makeup trends! They are the only ones I follow religiously every year.

  • Love all the berry shades! I just wrote a post about summer makeup for anyone interested living in the southern hemisphere x x

  • Sylvia

    Great picks, Anna! I am now currently lemming for MAC Cranberry and Clinique Black Honey so thank you (my wallet thinks otherwise).

  • Cousteau

    Have just found your blog and am slowly trawling through the archives and thoroughly enjoying myself!

    Any idea of any dupes for that Clinique eyeshadow? Is there a Mac one that’s similar?

  • Hannah Wood

    Just bought Black Honey because of you!!

  • Tarte Tanya

    Amazing video!
    The Clinique Black Honey looks amazing on you!

  • Talisa Lauren Tossell
  • Simoneg


  • Clinique Black Honey is absolutely gorgeous! i think it would be a beautiful shade for brown and hazel eyes, as well. I definitely will take a look at it next time I’m at the Clinique Counter.

    You’ve convinced me on the clinique eyeshadow. It looks so pretty on you and I like that it’s not full on red like the mac one. There will be a trip to sephora in the near future.

  • tiana

    give nars douceur a try as a tarte exposed dupe

  • Radhika

    The black honey eyeshadow from Clinique is one of my favorites, and I love, love, love MAC’s Rebel – such a fall staple.

    I’m also obsessed with Boscia’s Tsubaki Oil – it’s lightweight but has a serious punch of hydration and plumping action. Give it a try!

    That Diptyique perfume sounds lovely! I’ll have to check it out!

  • PeonyandPeach

    Love all your picks! I really want to try out the Aromatherapy Associates Oils!

  • Janne

    I ran out and bought that Mavala nailpolish the same day you posted this, it’s absolutely gorgeous!!!!

  • Daniella

    great post! love MAC rebel!

  • I’ve been thinking about getting Rebel from MAC.
    But I’m a bit indecisive between that and a Too Faced La créme lipstick (the formula is amazing!)
    Please take care, have a nice day!*

  • LapizofLuxury

    You said Clinique Eyeshadow in Black Honey. I clicked on and a order confirmation magically appeared ;p !

  • cathrynb90
