Autumn Beauty Secrets Keep glowing post-summer with these tips..

Whether we like it or not, those sultry, salty days are gone but keep that gorgeous summer glow with these Autumn beauty secrets.All summer we saw a focus on healthy skin, with bare faces on the beach, on the streets and even on the catwalk. This season the ‘barely there’ look is still trending but that chill in the air means you can add a little more to your look. Like your wardrobe, you can delve into your beauty kit and unpack a few things you packed away for the summer.

We are seeing bold touches of colour combined with the bare-faced look everywhere right now. Bright red or deep maroon lips are being sported in the daytime with white tee, jeans and tousled hair while evening looks are all about a deep smokey eye, nude lips and bare skin so make sure  you get familiar with these autumn beauty secrets…



Autumn Skin


If you can’t go completely bare you can still achieve the look using the right amount of the lightest products. Mineral powders are the perfect for Autumn skin. They are light-weight and even out skin tone without caking your face. They also look super natural and have light reflecting qualities, helping you keep that luminescent summer glow.

Another option for your spring skin is using a BB (Beauty Balm) Cream. hey also offer lightweight, natural-looking coverage yet give your complexion a dewy look which is just what dull spring skin needs.

The best part about mineral powders and BB Creams? The best quality ones on the shelves right now are non-comodenic, meaning they won’t block your pores and are easily removed at the end of the day or night with a good cleanser. These are the ultimate beauty secrets for the bare-face look.

Autumn Eyes

We all wish we had the makeup artist (not to mention super lashes and perfect brows) of the smokey-eye queen Cara Delevingne, especially coming into Autumn. Right now the smokey eye is on high-trend and should be at the top of your  autumn beauty secrets list so listen up. Ditch the hard blacks; this autumn it’s all about a natural palette on the eyes. Greys, brownish-blacks and soft browns are where it’s at this season.

Using the right colours will make your eyes pop. Green eyes explode with a soft grey smokey eye, blue eyes pop using natural browns or bronzes and brown eyes look like pools of rich chocolate using soft blacks or navy hues.  It is the perfect look for Autumn evening and will make your eyes your ultimate accessory. Pair the smokey eye with a nude lip for ultra elegance or with a natural glass for a rock chic look.

Oh and brows, brows, bows. Define and fill in areas with a powder or pencil to make them stronger and give more emphasis to your eyes. They are also key to shaping your face and compliment the bare-faced look so stop plucking and start combing instead.

Autumn Lips


Colour is back this spring after a hiatus over summer. A bold red lip is no longer reserved for evening, popping on a fresh face in the light of day. Blood red and even deeper shades like maroons and purples are trending, as seen on the catwalk at recent fashion weeks around the world.

The spring lip does require maintenance but it is worth it. Use a lip primer to plump and smooth your lips and keep the colour in place longer and remember, using lip liner is essential. It is the best way define the shape of your lips and this super important when wearing dark shades.

As far as Autumn beauty secrets go the bold lip is, well, the boldest. Combined with a barely-there base and just a hint of mascara it is the perfect way to add some colour to your Autumn look. It dresses up the jeans and a tee in the daytime and makes for a sexy touch in the evening. Perfect.
