As it’s October and the weather is noticeably colder, I decided it was time to share an autumn makeup look.
I personally love autumn with the fresh, crisp air and the pretty leaves in the trees with their red, brown, yellow and orange tones. Although it means the summer is over, autumn is really refreshing and I love the trends that this season brings.
My autumn makeup look can be created with any warm-toned eyeshadow palette that contains brown, copper and gold tones. I think this is a pretty versatile look and I hope you enjoy it.
Creating the eye makeup
To create the eyeshadow look, I applied concealer all over my lids as a primer, before applying a light beige for my base shade.
Then, I built up my outer corners and crease with a coppery brown, which I blended out with a fluffy blending brush. I also used this same shade to drag underneath my eyes. Next, I deepened this same area with a darker brown to add more dimension to my autumn makeup look, blending out again with the same brush.
After, I used a concealer again to cut my crease halfway across my eyelids. I then wet a small, flat eyeshadow brush with setting spray to allow my shimmer shade to pop. I dipped the wet brush into a beautiful yellow-gold shimmer shade and packed it over the concealer.
Once I’d applied the yellowy gold, I went back in with the dark brown halfway across my lids and blended outwards. This ensured that the gold shade blended more subtly with the rest of my eyeshadow. I also used this shade just above the yellow-gold in the crease area for the same reason.
Finally, it was a case of using a white shimmer shade in my inner corners and brow bone, applying some eyeliner, mascara and false lashes, then my eye makeup was completed.
Here’s what products I used to create my autumn makeup look:
- Primer: e.l.f. Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer
- CC Cream: Physician’s Formula CC Color-Correction Cream in ‘Light’
- Concealer: Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in ‘C2’
- Setting powder: RCMA No-Color Powder
- Bronzer: Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in ‘Light’
- Blusher: Milani Baked Blush in ‘Luminoso’
- Highlighter: Wet n Wild MegaGlow Highlighting Powder in ‘Precious Petals’
- Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel in ‘Chocolate’
- Eyeshadow primer: The same Revolution concealer mentioned above
- Eyeshadow palette: Morphe 35R Ready, Set, Gold Artistry Palette
- Eyeliner: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in ‘Black Ink’
- Kohl eyeliner: Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner Pencil in ‘White Luster’
- Mascara: L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara in ‘Carbon Black’
- False eyelashes: Ardell Demi Pixies
- Lip liner: Milani Color Statement Lipliner in ‘Spice’
- Lipstick: M.A.C. Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in ‘Taupe’
To finish my autumn makeup look, I spritzed the Colourpop All Star Matte Setting Spray all over my face to keep my makeup in place.
Although not my fave makeup look that I’ve created, I like this look a lot. I adore gold tones, so any look with that shade warrants an automatic win.
If you used a subtler shimmer across the lids, I think this is an ideal daytime look. But, with the bold gold shimmer, I think this autumn makeup look would be great for a birthday meal or some cute evening cocktails with the girls.
I hope you liked this creation and I can’t wait to share my next makeup look with you guys.

Would love to hear some tricks and tips for applying the eye liner… I love this kind of look, but I can never get a perfect cat-eye…
I’ve put it down in my list of content ideas and I think it would be a pretty popular post as doing winged liner can be tricky. Thanks for commenting, I really appreciate it
I love this look! I think to make it more suitable for the day, you could use a slightly paler gold colour. Really beautiful and so spot on for autumn.
Yeah, I think so too! I mean, I’d deffo wear this as a daytime look anyway but I’m extra lol
I love this look! That yellow suits you so well. I’m in love with your wing liner, I wish I could do it myself but I already have a hard time putting on a normal straight line lol.
Awww, thanks girl, I appreciate it so much! Cristina in the comments above mentioned doing a blog post on winged liner/creating the cat eye wing, so I might do it. It’s taken years of practice and I still mess it up so much lol
