DIY: Tricks to switch from summer to autumn make-up


autumn_storysizeLondon, September 26 – Autumn season calls not only for wardrobe change, but also the makeover of make-up kit. An expert suggests how you can transform make-up from summer to autumn subtly.

Natasha Daniel, a head make-up artist at beauty blog fBeauty, says that make-up needs extra attention during the transitional time of the year and hence, you need to be very particular about the kind of products you choose, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Here is what she suggests for different parts of your face:


* Skin: Just like spring-summer 2014 make-up trends, there is a strong emphasis on the ‘au naturel’ look this autumn-winter as seen on the catwalk in Paris, Milan, New York and London alike. To keep in line with the theme, you can go for light bronzed glow, which gives the impression of a distant late summer holiday.

To achieve the perfect glow that isn’t too intense, you can start with a primer. Next up is the all important base. For this time of year, foundation isn’t necessary, so instead opt for a tinted moisturiser. Apply evenly with a brush or your fingers for best results.

Complete your look by lightly dusting down the bridge of your nose, your chin, as well as your ears. You can even take what’s left on your brush and sweep down your neck and collar bones for a uniformed finish.

On the lid for a maximum pop of colour try using a cream base first followed by a touch of loose shadow on top, in a copper or antique gold colour and watch how your eyes will lift and sparkle. Do the same in your inner corners with a lighter shade to highlight and wait for the compliments to come pouring in. Colour choices for this season are champagne (for inner corners) and bronze.

*Lips: Berry and burnt orange toned reds are staple and will complement the chosen eye shades beautifully. Keep it matte for autumn-winter, glossier for spring-summer.
