Autograph Custom Colour
For £12 a pop, I think the Autograph Custom Colour collection is pretty good value – it’s certainly a very versatile product when it comes to base perfecting. There are lots of colour correctors around at the moment, but the difference here is that you can add this into your foundation to tone adjust. I’ve been playing around with this, and you can also use it before your base, or blend over – something that M&S don’t really mention on their site and I’m not sure why. But, primary purpose is to add in.
So, there’s a Light, Dark, Purple and Green and I’m sure I don’t need to spell out what each one is for – M&S clearly don’t feel the need either because all the colours are indicated for brightening a sallow tone! (Lavender evens out a sallow tone and green tackles redness.)
I used the new Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in Shade 2.5 and added each Autograph Custom Colour to it.
You can see it made a huge difference to shades – and I tried very hard to use the same amount in each pool although it’s not a scientific experiment so precision may vary! The first shade is UD 2.5, followed by Green, Dark, Lilac and Pale. You could even mix it with your concealer – I didn’t find the formula at all dry so if you have a liquid concealer that works well, the Custom Colour won’t affect performance. I think particularly handy is the darker shade that takes a foundation down a shade or two to seasonally adjust to your tone. I always have a warmer tone in summer and a more sallow one in winter so this is a helpful product for me in those aspects.
Anyway, if you fancy playing Picasso with your foundation, it’s HERE.
