Go-To Makeup Routine Autumn 2016!

As promised earlier this month, I am going to share with you my go to makeup look for autumn. I have switched up a few products so I hope you like it. This is going to be a chatty post, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy!

Starting off with base, I am priming with the Collection Primed and Ready Illuminating Primer in Warm Apricot, this is a new purchase of mine and I am currently testing it out. In the colder seasons I love super glowy skin and so I chose to test this primer, I will let you know my final thoughts soon.
For foundation, I have been mixing two, the Rimmel Match Perfection and my beloved L'Oreal True Match, this just creates the perfect custom colour and it gives my skin a really luminous finish.
For concealer I am mixing two, Rimmel Wake Me Up and Collection Lasting Perfection, I will apply both on the areas I want to highlight and just the Collection one on any blemishes. These two concealers mixed give the perfect highlighted but high coverage effect.
As always, I am setting that with my Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit and the ABH Pressed Powder in Banana, you all know I love this combo, it keeps my concealer in place all day, while giving it even more coverage.
I will then cream contour with the LA Girl Pro Conceal in Toast, this gives a lot of definition to my face while still making it look natural.
For face powder, I am using the Freedom Pressed Powder to lightly set all creams in place. I don't like a matte face in Autumn as I want my skin to look very glowy and moisturized.
I will bronze with the bronzer shade out of my Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette and this just makes my skin look super bronzed and healthy.
To contour I will use the ABH Pressed Powder in Fawn just to help further define my cheekbones and nose, this really helps to enhance the cream contour I applied earlier.
For blush I am using a Makeup Revolution Blush in the shade Now! This is a very out there colour for me as it is quite cool toned and it has some shimmer in it, but since it is autumn, I wanted to try something a little different, and I actually love the way it looks on my skin.
To highlight my face, I am going in with the Mary Loo Manizer on my cheekbones, brow bone, cupids bow and the tip of my nose, I love this highlight as it is quite golden and makes my cheekbones look poppin'.
On my eyes I am going to prime with the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade On and On Bronze. This just gives a beautiful pop of colour on eyes and it looks like I have spent loads of on my eyes but it actually just takes ten seconds. I will apply this all over the lid and then blend up to the crease.
You could always stop there but I like to go back in with my bronzer from the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette just to deepen up the crease a little more, I will also take that bonzer shade on my lower lash line.
For the inner corner I will just take my Mary Loo Manizer once again and put the on my inner corner, bringing it up to my inner lid as well, just to tie the look together.
Finishing it off with some mascara, I am using my favourite Maybelline the Colossal Go Extreme Waterproof mascara on my top and bottom lashes.
For my eyebrows I am just going to fill them in with my ABH Dip Brow Pomade and blend it well so they still look natural.
To make sure they stay in place all day I am going to use my Primark Clear brow gel to set them.
Finally for lips I am going to use Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy all over. Sometimes I would add a gloss but at the moment I am quite enjoying the matte lip.

What's your everyday makeup routine for autumn?
