Autumn Makeup Makeover

If you have your favourite vintage makeup look, think about adapting it for the change in the weather – you can still stick with your beloved red lips, but perhaps adapt your eye shadow shade slightly, or ditch the bright summery nails, and go for some more muted, wintry colours. Everyone likes a change now and again…

So how can how can I help you achieve you autumnal look?  Buy finding you some cheaper cosmetics, of course! First up, it’s every vintage girl’s favourite brand, Benefit. Yes, they’re not exactly famous for their low price tags, but just look at this Benefit voucher code and you could take advantage of up to 50% off selected items. This includes their Velvet Eye Shadow, reduced from £13.50 to £6.75 in the rather seasonal and on-trend shade of ‘Where There’s Smoke’.

Direct Cosmetics are always my go-top online shop for bargain branded makeup, so I would highly recommend you make them your first port of call too. Shimmer with this L’Oreal Color Riche Nail Varnish in Ornimental Gold, now only a teeny-tiny £1.80, or this Hard as Nails by Sally Hansen in Tu Tu Mocha for an even teenier-tinier £1.49.

If you love looking for cheap cosmetics in Superdrug when you’re on the high street, there’s absolutely no reason whatsoever why you can’t do it from the comfort of your own sofa too. This current Superdrug discount voucher is offering you buy 1 get 1 half price on selected L’Oreal makeup, including these L’Oreal Color Riche (again, yes I know, but they do have some fabulous shades at the moment) Made For Me Naturals. My pick of the autumnal colours are Berry Blush and Blush Fever (they’re not blushers, honest).

So hopefully this will get you off to a good start with your autumn colour palette. Remember, no fluorescent shades. And if it doubt, go with the red lipstick every time…
