So, I decided to do something a little different for you guys this week – I created a makeup look and a couple of outfits inspired by autumn, plus I collaborated with a photographer, Olivia Prisecaru. For inspiration I looked at the changing colours of the leaves around me which included dark red, brown, copper, orange and yellow and then I went shopping! I visited the MAC store on Carnaby street in search of a burgundy lipstick and one of the lovely store assistants gave me a Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour called ‘High Drama’ and it did not disappoint! I fell in love with it immediately and wasted no time in buying it, along with a lot a few other items :-).  Next stop was Oxford street and I discovered a beautiful tan suede jacket from Mango which fit like a glove. I’ve wanted a biker jacket for ages, and I had black leather in mind, but when I tried on this suede jacket I realised that tan was the new black – I HAD to have it. Biker jackets are one of those versatile wardrobe pieces that you can dressup or dress down plus they never really go out of style.

I already had in my wardrobe other clothing items, like my black over the knee boots from Nine West which I bought last season. This is the second year that over the knee boots have been in fashion so I think that this trend may be staying for a while. I’ll put the shopping links for both outfits below so check them out and consider picking up a few new pieces for your autumn wardrobe. (N.B. My boots and Black Gilet are no longer available in the shops so I’ve listed alternatives)

For my makeup look, I created a brown-red smokey eye by layering a red blush on top of a matte brown eyeshadow to create a custom colour; then I paired this with my new matte ‘High Drama’ lipstick. The overall look is very matte and muted, so you can wear it during the day or even at night. I even matched my nail polish to my lipstick – how matchy-matchy!! Very old school I know, but hey, I just can’t get enough of deep plum colours at the moment.

Enjoy the pictures below and I hope they inspire you to create your own looks for the autumn season.
