Autumn Makeup Tutorial

Hello Everybody,
Today I thought I would do a little autumn makeup tutorial, as I has recently changed up my makeup look to make it more suitable for autumn time, and I really like it, so I thought this was a great opportunity for me to give you a bit of a makeup tutorial. So, I hope you enjoy this post and that you give it a go when you next have the chance.
Recently my skin has actually been really good to me so I have given my face a little break from foundation as it really doesn't need it at the moment, and I would say that if your skin is nice enough also, and you feel confident enough without it, then drop the foundation from your daily makeup for a little while. However, I still used a little bit of my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer under my eyes and on some red patches to make my skin look a little more flawless. I also set this and made my skin look less shiny with my Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder. I then used my Soap&Glory Glow All Out on the apples of my cheeks to give me a bit more colour.
For my eyes I firstly used Trick from my Naked 3 palette on the lids of my eyes and into the crease, because I think this beautiful bronze colour is super autumnal. I then used my Maybelline Gel Liner to create a cat eye look, because I think the darker the eye the better sometimes, and I have been really enjoying my cat eye lately, even though it has taken it's time to master. I actually skipped mascara completely, mostly by accident, but to be honest it was barely noticeable because my eye liner was making such a statement.
Finally for my lips I use Revlon's Kissable Balm Stain in the colour honey, because it isn't too dark but is a really nice plumb shade of pink. The trick with these balm stains is the more you build it up the darker the lip, which I really love.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, and try it for yourself.

Autumn Fashion Staples #teenblogseries

Hello Everybody,
I have a new #teenblogseries post for you all and this week I am going to be talking about Autumn Fashion staples, which I am quite excited about as I do quite often forget to write fashion related posts, even though I absolutely love fashion.

Boots

There are all sorts of boots out there that you can get, but my personal preference are ankle boots. There are all sorts of types... Timberland's, Doc Marten's, Chelsea Boots, Brown lace ups, they all look equally as great in the Autumn time, and they can also transition into the winter time too as they are so warm and versatile. You can literally wear them with anything, be it jeans, dresses or even a pair of shorts and tights. If there is anything you need to buy this Autumn it is a pair of boots.

Jeans

People have different preferences for the size and shape of their jeans, for me, as I have quite a petite but tall frame so I prefer to wear skinny jeans, But in the autumn I particularly like slightly distressed skinnies, which is a shame because my school won't allow ripped jeans,

Mittens and Scarfs

I actually did one of my favourite blog posts on this last year, and that is about mittens and scarfs. Firstly, mittens keep your hands super warm, yet look 10 times nicer then normal gloves, and scarfs can literally change any look, there are so many different scarfs out there. From snoods, to cable knit, to little sheer dressy scarfs, they can all complete a look whilst keeping your neck warm all at the same time. You really couldn't ask for much more.

Cosy Jumpers

My final Autumn fashion staple has to be cosy jumpers. I love that there are so many different thicknesses of jumper now, that you can be prepared for any type of fluctuating autumnal weather. My favourite type of jumper are the thick oversized, pastel coloured cable knit jumpers, and I totally need to buy some more when I have enough money too. These are particularly comfortable when worn with some nice leggings.

I hope you liked this little fashion post.

Skincare Sunday// Simple Soothing Eye Balm Review & EXCITING NEWS!!

Hello Everybody,
Today I have my normal Skincare Sunday post but with a little bit of a twist, because at the end of this post I have a little announcement to make, which I am very excited about. If you follow me on Twitter however you will already know about this, but I will be adding a bit more information on here.
Back to the main purpose of today's post and that is the fact that it is Sunday which means I have another skincare review for you which is part of a 4 part series. Let's jump right into this...

Packaging

The packaging of this product is very much like what the Simple Eye Roll-on is like, as in it comes in a little box, with instructions, little diagrams and any other useful information that to be quite frank, I normally forget to read. However, I do really like the fact it comes in a box because it means it is less likely to get damaged on it's journey home. I also really like the tube that the eye cream comes in because the end only lets a little bit of product out at a time, meaning I don't use it all at once.

Function

I mean, my eyes aren't particularly bad but I like to care for them as much as possible because eyes tend to age the quickest. But, I do think it leaves me with brighter eyes in the morning, and my dark circles definitely seem to be fading. So, with this product and the eye roll-on my eyes have actually been looking pretty happy, and everybody loves smiling eyes.

Price

This Simple Eye Balm is £3.99 most places which I think is a pretty good price considering I think it will last a while as you really don't have to use much. Also I got this for free as I did use a Boots 3 for 2 offer, so it was even more of a bargain for me. I highly recommend you look out for the 3 for 2 offers at boots as they can save you quite a bit of money.

Finally... THE EXCITING NEWS!!

For some time now Elizabeth and I have been planning a little project to help beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers find eachother on the internet. We decided to start a blog together where any beauty, fashion or lifestyle blogger can guest post on. We are super excited about this project because we want to find new blogs, and I am sure you all do too. The blog is FblBloggers Unite and you can find out more information about it there, or alternatively you can email elizabethemilybloggers@gmail.com where either Elizabeth or I will be very willing to answer your questions and help you become part of this little community.
I hope you are just as excited about this news as I am, and I will see you tomorrow.

My Autumn Essentials

Hello Everybody,
Emily has another Autumn themed blog post? What are you talking about? She did one a couple of days ago? No... she can't be!
Of course she is!! Emily loves autumn, and will do many Autumn themed posts until she runs out of ideas!
My first Autumn essential has to be candles, I mean, the specific types of candles. When I talk about Autumn candles I mean the spicey and bakey ones. None of that fruity and floral nonesense, because it's Autumn. No one wants a summer smelling Autumn candle...that is just a big fat no no! Particular autumn candle favourites of mine are Yankee candle Salted Caramel and also Cinnamon Sticks. They both smell delicious.
My next Autumn essential is probably blankets. We need blankets okay!? Save your heating bill and snuggle up instead. Blankets are so super cosy and great for cuddling up after a long day. Perhaps even cuddling up with a hot mug of cocoa, or snuggling down at night with a nice cup of camomile tea.
Then, how can I miss talking about moisturiser. People seem to forget that although it is important to moisturise to keep your skin healthy in the summer you should still do it in the winter; it stops your skin becoming sore and chapped. I like to use Vaseline's Cocoa Butter Spray and Go moisturiser for my body because it is super easy and convenient to use. I then use a Bodyshop Hand Lotion to moisturise my hands.
Finally how can I go on about Autumn without talking about the perfect pair of boots. Nice lace up brown ones that are furry on the inside and fold down. They would be perfect. So when I find some that are affordable that will be my Autumn essenials sorted.
I hope you enjoyed this post,

I love Autumn Tag!!

Hello Everybody,
Today I have a little Autumn themed tag post for you all, as I did one last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, because as you may well know, I absolutely love love love Autumn. I thought this was the perfect time to do an autumnal themed tag post because as you may well know Autumn officially started yesterday. YES!!

What is your favourite Autumn lip product?

My favourite Autumn lip product has to be Maybelline's Colorsensational Hollywood Red lipstick. It is the perfect deep red colour, and is just so autumnal, cosy and glamorous all at once. There really isn't much more you could ask for. However, I am going to be purchasing the Rimmel Kate Moss 107 lipstick this autumn because I do absolutely adore it.

What is your favourite Autumn nail polish?

Hmmm... I am loving the new Barry M autumn collection, but as I don't actually own any of them, the next best thing is my Barry M Pink Silver Glitter nail polish, which is absolutely perfect for Autumn, because everything should be a little more sparkly in Autumn, don't you think?

What is your favourite Sturbucks Autumn drink?

Salted Caramel Latte!! Can we just talk about it? It is salted caramel and latte... it is absolutely heavenly and I really want one... RIGHT NOW!!

What is your favourite Autumn candle?

Okay, this is becoming a running trend, but the salted caramel Yankee Candle of course. Salted Caramel is my favourite Autumn combination, so a candle version of the perfect flavours is just the BEST!

What is your favourite scarf?

I have a pink and blue tartan scarf from Primark which I am absolutely loving at the moment and it is definitely my favourite Autumn scarf right now.

What is your favourite Haunted House ride?

The Disney one, because it is tame and I don't like scary things like that because I'm a whimp and used to have really bad nightmares, and once when I was on the one at Alton Towers I completely panicked and was hysterical for ages afterwards. I mean... I was about 8, but I would still never go in it again, walls just shouldn't move!

What is your favourite Halloween movie?

There are Halloween movies? Can I just stick to Monsters Inc.? That's scary right?

What are your favourite sweets to eat on Halloween?

Hmmm... Refresher Bars, because they contain sherbet, and I love sherbet... enough said.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

People are thinking about this already? Ermmm...?

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?

EVERYTHING!! Hot chocolate, crunchy leaves, rainy days, cosy evenings, scarfs and gloves, boots, dark lipstick, big jumpers, leggings, candles.... EVERYTHING!

Okay, before I completely break down in hysterical excitement because it is now officially Autumn I am going to go... but I tag, hmmm... I don't know. Everyone? All of you? JUST DO IT!

4. Moisturise lips with Nivea's orginal lip balm.

6. Use Lush's popcorn lip scrub
7. Apply Nivea's lip balm
8. Apply hydrocortisone on my eczema patches on my neck.

I hope this inspires you and your skincare, but remember, yours doesn't have to be the same as mine, as long as you are doing what works for you that is all that's important.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I will talk to you all tomorrow.
