Blogtober: Autumn/Fall Tag ♡

Hi lovelies,

I’m a little late on the #Blogtober band wagon but I thought it’s better late than never. I was inspired to join in by the lovely Bournemouthgirl as I have recently come across her blog & have been loving it!! Definitely go check her out if you haven’t already🙂

Right, let’s get in to this autumn tag!!

1. What signifies the start of autumn for you?

When the leaves on the trees start to turn all the beautiful orangey shades before they fall off the tree. Not to mention the weather turning colder and the knitted jumpers come out. LOVE this time!!!!

2. What is your favourite Autumn scent?

Love vanilla or cinnamon, especially in candle form! Feels so warm & cosy!! Plus, it makes the house smell delicious!!

3. What is your favourite Autumn colour?

Burgundy, I love love love burgundy especially this time of year!!

4. What is your favourite Autumn drink?

Mmm.. got to be a good mug of hot chocolate, can’t beat it! Not so keen on pumpkin spiced drinks! (Am I the only one!?🤔)

5. What T.V. show new or old, are you looking forward to this Autumn?

I’ve been loving watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S again!! Started it from the beginning & watch a few episodes on a night. Who else loves F.R.I.E.N.D.S?🙂

6. What is your favourite Autumn fashion trend?

Can’t beat a warm jumper, leather jacket & warm scarf!!

7. What is your favourite Autumn activity?

I used to love going conker picking when I was a child. It screams autumn to me. Can’t wait to relive my childhood with my son when he’s older!

8. What is your favourite make up look in Autumn weather?

On an everyday basis I generally like a light, but bronzed & glowy skin with light eye makeup – usually just plenty of my fave mascara, click here for a full review. Then to finish off the look I love a burgundy or dark lip!

9. What is your favourite Autumnal movie?

I don’t have any favourite autumn movies specifically. I’m probably missing out, aren’t I? Let me know your fave autumn movie so I can have a watch 🙂

10. Best way to spend a rainy day?

Inside, tucked up in a blanket all warm & cosy with a mug of hot chocolate or Yorkshire Tea 😍

11. Silent nights or windy ones?

Windy one. Love the sound of the wind, it’s so soothing to me!

12. What three things do you love about the season?

❤Dressing warm & cozy.

❤Darker makeup looks.

❤How beautiful every where looks with all the different orangey autumnal tones.

13. What three things do you hate about the season?

❤Pumpkin spiced everything, I don’t get the hype!

❤When everywhere goes all mushy from all the leaves falling off the trees. They’re lovely while they’re on the tree.

❤I don’t mind rain & cold. But hate fog, I live near the coast so we tend to get more fog/seafrets this time of year.

14. Which moisturizer is your favorite in the autumn season?

I love the simple moisturiser mixed with the Superdrug vitamin E serum all year round. I just add more serum as it gets colder.

15. Apple pie or Pumpkin Pie. What’s your favorite?

Apple pie. Mmm. Could eat some right now. Never actually tried pumpkin pie, it’s not as popular here in the UK.

16. October or November?

October. My birthday month so got to love it. Plus it means the start of autumn!

17. Do you dress up for Halloween

Not myself but dress my step kids up & this year will be dressing up baby Rylie. He’s currently nearly 5 months old.

18. What do you feel at the end of the Fall season?

I feel happiness. I love spending time with family doing things inside together & just enjoying each other’s company!

I hope this gave you a bit of an insight about me. I love getting to know you all too 😘

Autumnal obsession ❤

Hi lovelies,

I was feeling the autumn/fall vibes!! 😍 Autumn is probably my favourite season when it comes to makeup, I love the berry & orangey tones especially on my green eyes! ❤

For this look I used my custom shadow palette in the shades Agile, Fervent, Manipulative & Optimistic.

I put agile in the crease & outer corner. I then added depth into the outer corner & lash line with fervent. To add a pop of colour I used manipulative on the lid, I absolutely love these colours together. They scream autumn to me!! I then used optimistic in my inner corners & brow bone to highlight these areas & make my eyes look even brighter.

I made sure I blended each colour well before applying the next! Keep adding colour until your happy & get to the intensity you desire.

For the bottom lashes I mixed agile & fervent to smoke out the bottom lashes & balance the eyes a bit more.

Of course I then added a couple of coats of my favourite mascara, read my review here. To finish off this look I applied my matte liquid lipstick in the shade sublime! This is the perfect nude for my super pale complexion; I love it. Most nudes make me look super washed out!!

I hope you enjoyed this look. What are your favourite looks in autumn/fall?❤

Date night makeup!!♡

Hi beauties ♡

Even before we had Rylie we, me & matt my fiance, found it hard to find time just for us. So now baby is here we are trying to make an effort every couple of months at least to have us time! Last week we went on our first date night since little man was born. So of course, I made an effort!🙂 I’m obsessed with how my makeup turned out so thought I would share it with you all 😘

If you follow my instagram you’ll have already had a sneak peek, follow me here! (I follow back)💜

For this look I just did my normal go to base, if you’d like me to do a post on my go to base routine comment below 🙂

I wanted to look like I’d made an effort but not spent ages, I love a smokey look so decided on this look, which I’m obsessed with!!

To start I used my Hoola bronzer in the crease of my eyes as a bit of warmth & definition. I then went in with a light & dark brown on the very outer corner of my eyes! Start by using the lighter brown to make it easier to blend the dark shade on top. Smoke out where you will be putting liner. Then once your happy go in with the darker brown to intensify the smokiness even more & to add dimension to the look. Don’t worry if it looks messy it comes together in the end.

I then used a black shadow along the lash line & roughly softened this for a smokey effect. Build up the shadows to your desired intensity of smoke, I left it quite soft & added winged liner to finish off the look! The winged liner really pulls the look together.

Since we are in autumn I decided that I was going to crack out my fave autumnal/winter lip! My matte liquid lipstick in the shade sensual!

This shade is my ALL TIME FAVE, I love it & really loved how it complimented this makeup look! Since the lip is dark I did use a liner first, applied the lippy & then blotted the excess off for a long lasting finish!!

Let me know if you like these shorter posts? Or do you prefer a more in depth tutorial style post?🙂

Love hearing your feedback!❤
