5 Autumn Makeup Essentials
Autumn brings the beginning of change, from starting up classes again - in person, if you're lucky enough - to the leaves falling in waterfalls of earthy tones to mark the end of summer. The weather is starting to get a little chilly, and so we turn in our bright and fun colours, opting to ease into more mature browns and reds to reflect the mood around us.
These makeup products are perfect for the short days and long, cool nights. Filled with romantic and understated earthy tones that catch the eyes of those around you, no matter what look you're going for, these makeup products will become essential for this Autumn.
