Don’t forget to blend the foundation onto your ears and down your neck, as it will help in preventing any smudges or streaks. Use a brown color foundation to get a perfect autumn look.
  • Apply some concealer onto your: under-eye area, any blemishes or spots on your face and also on the sides of your nose. Don’t forget to blend the concealer in.
  • One of the most important elements of autumn makeup routine is adding warmth to your face.
