Autumn Eyeshadow Picks

For me, Autumn is all about dreamy burgundy hues with details of gold - reminiscent of the changing leaves; cosy jumpers in blush shades and navy colours; warming up numb fingers with a to go cup of hot chocolate and baking red velvet cupcakes. I also love switching up my eye makeup for similar autumn colours, coppers, reds and browns are very much in order this season.

The Sleek Au Naturel Palette is something I've been mentioning a lot lately, you can read this review to see swatches and more details on it. I always bring this back out every Autumn because the shades are so apt for the seasonal tones. There are buttery mattes and shimmery taupes, mauves and browns.

A more recent purchase are these Freedom Pro Single Eyeshadows. I didn't buy the empty palette to store them in because I had no idea how quality they would be, as they were only £2! I picked up Shimmer 02, a stunning copper shimmer which I've been looking for for ages. Also Matte 10, a dark burgundy red. I haven't figured out how to wear the red yet, as it is quite bold but it is perfect for autumn. They are so so sooooo pigmented, more so than some of my MAC..

Another single shadow to mention is one of my all time faves, MAC's All That Glitters is a rose gold shade with gold reflect. The pigmentation of MAC shadows are very hit and miss but this shade is definitely one of the better ones. Another autumn pick is MAC Omega. Essentially this is just a sheer cool toned matte brown, but I think it looks really good worked in the crease underneath bronze shadows.

Lastly, the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette is something usually talked about in spring/summer time, but blush pink is a major trend right now and particularly this A/W. So I thought this palette would coincide with that theme really nicely, the pigmentation is great for just £4 and you get 12 shades identical to the likes of Naked 3.

What are your autumn eyeshadow picks?



  1. I'm intrigued by the Freedom single shadows. In the picture the shades look very simialr to Makeup geek ones. For me it has to be ABH MR palette, its has so many warm tones perfect for this time of year xx

  2. I have never seen Freedom single shadows! They look amazing, very similar to MG ones! That Makeup Rev Iconic 3 looks so lovely, I wish I could pull off and wear more cool toned eyeshadows! My favourites would have to be the Mac eyeshadow in 'Amorous Alloy' and the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette xx


  3. Those freedom single shadows are gorgeous! It's amazing how wearable red eyeshadows can-- I'm sure you can make it work :) That mac shade is also gorgeous!
