What Cat Says - Beauty | Everyday Autumn Makeup Look

Any of you bloggers will know that we're scrambling for all the daylight we can now. Soon we'll be bulk photographing on our days off when we have some daylight and praying it won't rain when we have to start going outside for some good flat-lay or product shots. I re-learned this today when I started taking a few product review photos and some selfies for this post. Hello Autumn, it's been a while. Glad to have you back - kinda.

So today I'm going to share with you a look I've been consistently revisiting since the cold started to set in a little more for Autumn. I'm not one to keep wearing the same makeup look often but this one has become a favourite along side my "no makeup" makeup look. Let me know if you'd want to see that one too.

My current makeup look is a warm, rose-gold look with shimmer highlights of lilac or peach. A dark or berry lip colour to warm things up and voila! In two sentences, we have my go-to makeup look.

I love it because it's a really simple and warm look. It makes me feel autumn with the warm berry lip and the warm eyeshadow too. It's a really easy look to wear too
With this look, I haven't been smoking out my eyes unless I'm going out or I have a reason to up my makeup look but what I usually do is just blend a couple of colours from my Naked3 palette. My favourite at the moment has to be a blend of 'Dust' and 'Buzz' which are the pinker tones in the Naked3.
I'm obsessed with using Equinox (peach) in the Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette for a warmer highlight but I do love Hemisphere (lilac) for a cooler look! And I have to mention my love for the MUA metallic liquid lipsticks. Here I'm wearing Blaze but I'm pretty obsessed with Glint too which you'll see on the blog very soon...

I'm struggling with foundations and bases at the moment but I've been using up everything I have at the moment. I've come to the end of my Revlon colour-stay foundation and I'm starting to dip into a sample pot NYX gave me when I spent a little money in there a while ago. It's a great coverage foundation and I wish I knew the name of it because I definitely want to get one when it's time to buy a new foundation.

I also completely forgot to photograph the Seventeen brow pencil I used for this look which I thought I'd try today for a more natural brows look. My brows are quite unruly at the moment so it looks a bit crazy. And I also missed out my amazing eyeshadow base favourite from NYX which is just a eyeshadow base in a nude colour. It's a beautiful cream and sets my eyeshadow to stay all day - it's amazing and I think everyone should have one. Would you want to see a review on that? I'd probably like to talk about it.

I really wanted to share a cruelty-free makeup look with you today too, so you'll see below that all the things I used for this look ate cruelty-free products. Though I have a ton of non-cruelty-free makeup at the moment I wanted to show how much cruelty-free makeup is available and the great looks you can create with it. As I mentioned before I'm not throwing it away because I don't want to be wasteful and it is good useable makeup; but I will be using it until it's gone and then replacing it with cruelty-free brands.

So here is a flat-lay of the products I've been using a lot to create this look. I've been obsessed with NYX, MUS and Sleek in particular since going cruelty-free and I've also been re-loving Urban Decay and Seventeen knowing that they are cruelty-free brands. I also want to invest in Bare Minerals foundation one day after learning they are also an awesome cruelty-free brand.

I've seriously been loving this look and I know it isn't very different, but it's a go to look I've really been enjoying recently. I think I will share with you my "no makeup" makeup look because I quite like that one too for a fresh faced feel.

So there we have it, my current autumn everyday makeup look with a little run down of what I've been using on my face recently. I hope you like it and please share with me your autumnal makeup looks! I'd love to get some new inspiration!


  1. Love the rose gold theme! Have you seen the new Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette yet? I'm so excited to start creating some fall looks with it!

  2. You look so pretty, Cat! xx
