Everyday Autumn Makeup

I wouldn't say I'm one for following make-up trends; I tend to wear what I like, when I like, and hope for the best. That said, changes in the seasons do seem to lend themselves to mixing up my go-to make-up products a little, with me gravitating towards more neutral shades in the Autumn. Recently I've found myself falling into a bit of a make-up routine so I thought I'd share my current products of choice.
Everyday Autumn Makeup FOTD
[Products used: The Body Shop All-in-One Instablur Universal;  GOSH X-Ceptional Wear Foundation in 11 'Porcelain'; Soap & Glory Kick-Ass Concealer in 01 'Light'; Benefit High Beam; Rimmel Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder in 001 'Transparent'; Deborah Milano Natural Blusher in 05 'Cherry'*; GOSH Forever Eye Shadow Crayon in 02 'Beige'; Essence All About Nude Eyeshadow Palette; Maybelline Full 'N' Soft Mascara in 'Very Black'; Born Pretty Color My Brows Brow Gel in #1*]
When it comes to base, I battle my oily skin all year round, but it is decidedly worse in the summer, so come Autumn I can tone back the mattifying produts a little. The Body Shop's Instablur is my primer of choice year-round as it hides my massive pores and gives a nice smooth base for foundation. The GOSH foundation is one of my favourites, giving just the right amount of coverage with a lovely finish and a decent lasting power. Soap & Glory's Kick-Ass Concealer is a must-have for me too, both for under-eye circles and on any blemishes. I'm not loyal to powder in the slightest, this is the first time I've tried the Match Perfection one and it seems okay. I often go for a deeper blusher shade in Autumn and Winter to add a bit of colour to my face, this Deborah Milano one blends nicely and lasts well too. I really like the combination of the GOSH Eyeshadow Crayon as a base for the Essence eyeshadows; it really makes the shades pop and makes my eyes look that little bit brighter. The mascara is just one I'm using up, and the brow gel is a new addition to my routine but seems to work pretty well for me. For a lot of people, Autumn seems to be all about the berry lip, but I rarely wear lip products on a day-to-day basis so I've not included one here!
