I’ve been wanting to try out new foundation recently and a couple of weeks ago mum said she’d get me some new make up products so when we went to Marks & Spencer I thought I’d try the foundation in their Autograph range, their cosmetics were on 3 for 2 so I ended up getting a foundation and a face palette along with a bronzer/highlighter.
So then I thought I’d share with you the make up look I did today using Autograph and other make up products.
Hydrating Confidence Boost Foundation (in the shade Ivory)
Create The Look Palette
Face Definition Duo (bronzing & highlighting powder)
Other make up products used:
NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer (Fair)
NYX Land of Lollies Blush (Lollipop Hop)
Seventeen High Drama Intense Liquid Eyeliner (Blackest Black)
No7 Dramatic Lift mascara (Black)
No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil (Brown)
No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil (Purple)
The only product not in the photo is the No7 brow palette, I did use the powder in this as well as the pencil which is in the photo. I also used No7 Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer before adding any other make up.
I really love these products from Autograph, the foundation says it is buildable and it absolutely is, you put it on your face and feel like your blemishes are fading away without feeling like you’re caking yourself in product. It has a very lightweight feel!
Now on to the face palette – I used the second eyeshadow down on the first row (Nutmeg) and the third one down on the fourth row (Copper) they mixed really well together. I also used the lip product from this palette as well, the fourth one down on the first row (Pink Parfait).
I’m not always very keen on using lip products in palettes like this, I find them tricky to apply but even though the brush felt a little bit stiff it went on easily and lasted well – it was still on there for me to finish taking photos of my make up look after I’d had lunch, no topping up required!
The Face Definition Duo is a lovely highlighter/bronzer palette as well. I did find the bronzer going around the edge of the palette a bit but that can happen sometimes.
I also used my Spectrum Mean Girls make-up brush for the first time today (I got this in a set for my birthday) it’s so soft! I used this to apply both the bronzer and highlighter.
Have you used any Marks & Spencer Autograph make up before?
