Updating your makeup for autumn

Posted by Aisling Murray on

Autumn is my favourite season of the year for so many reasons, but one is the new makeup collections that make an appearance. I only update my makeup twice a year; first in spring time and second around this time of the year getting ready for the colder months. I love the colour of the year for 2015 which is pantone; I feel it’s the most ideal Autumn colour to incorporate, whether it be a nail polish, eyeshadow or if you’re feeling brave even a lipstick.



  Pantone: My favour autumn shade!


Only recently Elizabeth Arden came out with a new range of matte lipstick and in my opinion they are perfect for the autumn months. Unlike most matte lipsticks they are not drying and instead are very moisturising. Autumn is the best time to experiment with deep plums and rich berry tones and my favourite autumn toned lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden® are fig, raspberry and bold red.



I always say that eyebrows frame the face and it so true. They should not be neglected during the autumn months. CAILYN® has recently released their Gelux eyebrow product. It’s a waterproof gel formula and comes in a range of different colours. There is a built-in angle brush which makes this gel brow product ideal for travel. Find your perfect shade instore today and you can shape, define and fill for impeccably groomed brows.



The autumn months can be extremely cold and this can wreak havoc on our skin.  Skin can feel dry, tight and uncomfortable so we need to find a good moisturiser for our skin type. I love using the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Moisturiser® daily. For areas of my face that need extra hydration I use the famous Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream®. 8 Hour Cream® is an excellent barrier cream and can be very helpful against windburn and chapped lips.


Nail polish

One of the easiest ways to update your makeup during the autumn months is incorporating teal, grey and berry shades of polish. Some of my favourite’s autumn shades are from the super affordable Catrice® and include no. 85, 95 and 61. These polishes give a pop of colour and include the beautiful autumn colours. They are long wearing so don’t chip easy like some brands. They are amazing value too at only €2.99 each in Whelehans. They are the best value nail polish you will find.
