Autumn Make Up with the Sleek Storm Palette

I love Autumn, Winter and all the colours that come with the cooler seasons, and make up is no exception! I recently purchased another Sleek eyeshadow palette, this time with the theme 'Storm'. It contains a lot of dark colours, some of which will be reserved for evening wear, however some shades are just perfect for an Autumnal look.The above look is one I've been sporting a lot lately during the day - a gentle smoky rose eye and a very matte base with a bronze toned blush.

For the base I've been using my usual POREfessional primer from Benefit, along with Maybelline's Better Skin foundation, I'm not sure if it's actually making my skin better but it certainly hasn't made it any worse and has epic staying power. The Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher's are my favourite - this one is Rose Coup de Foudre and is a kind of bronze pink that bridges the gap between full-on bronzing season and winter rosy cheeks. My Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil keeps brows in check (though looking at this picture they definitely need a tidy - woops!)

Now I'm not going to lie, I have somehow managed to misplace the little see-through insert that would have told me the shade names and after quite a lot of googling I still can't find them! They were all rather cutely named, for example the second shade was called Sand Storm and was a lovely champagne shimmer. Damn my ability to loose things!

For the look above I used the pinky shimmer shade as a base, the reddish shimmer as a darker colour to line and blend into the outer lit, and Sand Storm to highlight a little on the brow bone and inner corners. I applied with the applicator that came in the palette as I find they do the job pretty well, then blended with the Emily 217 brush which is lovely and soft and (as you may have guessed) a great MAC 217 dupe.

To finish I applied Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara (I'm far too prone to smudging) and dabbed on a little Bourjois Rough Edition lipstick in Rose Tweed for a 'your lips but better' look that doesn't look too overdone.

What are your Autumn make up staples?
