I love autumn – it’s so pretty, agreed? And the colours of autumn transfer so beautifully into makeup – berry lips, russet eyes, and golden highlights. I wrote a post on my own blog last week with lots of lovely autumnal coloured beauty products – and some of my crocheted autumn leaves.

This week’s autumn collection I am loving is a wee bit more subtle in its hues, but I really love it. The Diego Dalla Palma Autumn collection has gorgeous tones of brown and berry, with lovely metallic highlights.
There ‘s a great Metal Eyeshadow (£17.50) which is liquid, and has an intense metallic effect. It comes in two shades – pink and anthracite, and is water-based – so shake before application. It adheres amazingly well and comes off easily too.
There’s the Makeup Studio Matte Eyeshadow (£12) in nude pink and anthracite, and this stuff has great pigment and delivers great coverage. The dove-grey easy to blend Eye Pencil (£14.50) is perfect for nude-effect shading in the lower part of the eye and also excellent to create a base for smoky eyes with nude shades.
The collection has a matte lipstick in Bordeaux, but I think I prefer the Geisha Liquid Lipstick in Bad Romance Geisha (£15.50) which is cooling on application and contains hyaluronic acid and aloe to hydrate and give the texture a velvety matte effect.
The Color Cream Gloss (£15.50) is creamy and bright, giving super shine, and protecting the lips. I also love the Warm Sculpting Powder (£27.50) to add that highlight to your autumn look.
It contains a special and super-rich mix of natural butters including pomegranate butter for its’ moisturising action, blackcurrant butter for the antioxidant and nourishing benefits, and cranberry butter for moisturising and antioxidant action to help the cellular regeneration.
Oh, and there are cute Nail Polishes too – a lovely nude pink Mannequin (£10) and a nude Biscuit.
