Today's blogvember post is another little face of the day (fotd). I love documenting some of my makeup looks and today's look is a dark, smoky look, with some purple undertones which I tested out a couple of weekends ago. I used the Freedom Pro Artist Pad Black Arts palette and really liked how it came out. I don't use this palette too often and the quality of the shadows really impressed me particularly as you get 48 colours for £15. I paired it with a deep vampy lipstick and really liked how the overall look came out. 





Foundation: Estee lauder Double wear Foundation (Shade: Ecru)
Concealer: Estee Lauder Doublewear Concealer (Shade: Light)
Powder: Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder (Shade: Translucent)
Bronzer: NYX Matte Bronzing Powder (Shade: Deep)
Eye Primer: Maybelline Colour Tattoo (Shade: Eternal Pink)
Eye Shadow: Freedom Pro Artist Pad Black Arts (Shades: 2nd Row 5th Shadow, 4th Row 5th Shadow, 5th Row 1st & 4th Shadow)
Eye Liner: Upper lash line: L'Oreal Superliner Black Lacquer
Highlight: Mac Mineralised Skin Finish (Shade: Soft & gentle)

I loved how this look came out, but let me know your thoughts. Let me know in the comments what your favourite make-up look at the moment is?

Today's blog post is a little tag. I thought it would be nice to do a few of these throughout the month as a way for you all to get to know me a bit better! Today is going to be nice and autumnal with the sweater weather tag.


Favourite candle scent?
I love a good candle but and never someone who sticks to one scent or even brand – this is mainly as I tend to get my candles from TKMaxx and you can never guarantee you will get the same in each visit. Currently though I am in love with the Makers of Wax Goods 'Suede' candle. 

Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
D. all of the above! I tend to drink a good milky coffee in the morning (preferably in a Christmas flavour) but, I can never get enough of a good creamy hot chocolate as a weekend treat, and at work i'm always partial to a mint or lemon tea!

What's the best fall memory you have?
My best fall memory is of walking to and from school over frozen grounds with leaves on the floor and stepping on them to hear the crunch. I was always wrapped up warm, but still feeling the chill and I just remember loving it. 

Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?
Can I answer both?? I love doing a dark lip, particularly a deep red in autumn, but am more likely to wear a winged eyeliner every day.

Best fragrance for fall?
I love either Viva La Juciy by Juciy Coutour or Decadance by Marc Jacobs both of them are super sexy musky autumnal scents.

Favourite Thanksgiving food?
Now we don’t have thanksgiving in the UK so I’m going to change this slightly to be favourite autumn food, and being British I love a good roast dinner, or a nice hot lamb stew with dumplings, those good hearty meals will always win me over in autumn.

What is autumn weather like where you live?
In the UK it’s generally dark grey and chilly but, mostly dry with occasional rain – I think it’s a bit of a misconception that it rains a lot in the UK – and it does, but in winter and autumn not so much.

Most worn sweater?
This one from Barbour, it actually was my boyfriends Jack's, but he managed to shrink it in the wash so it's mine now. It is super warm and I love the colour.



Must-have nail polish this fall?
I have recently been loving the more neutral nude colours for fall and have recently been loving mink from autograph. The Autograph nail polishes are so long wearing they are perfect for a week at work.

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Jumping in leaf piles! I hate football, It's so boring and it's on all the time!

Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans 100%. I live in them all year round and wouldn’t change it in the autumn. Also if it's super cold you can put some leggings under for extra warmth!

Combat boots or Uggs?
Uggs they keep your feet so snuggly, warm and sooo comfortable! It's like little hugs on your feet!

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Now don’t get me wrong I do enjoy a little pumpkin spice flavouring, and even bought myself a pumpkin spice flavoured Baileys. However, recently things have gone a bit far, I ordered a PSL in Starbucks and it was bright orange and so over powering! In my view it should just be a subtle flavouring.

Favourite fall TV show?
This may not be a show aired in autumn, but I always tend to re-watch it in autumn as it fits well with the darkness outside and the scenes in the show, but that is Game Of Thrones. I love it, but we have to wait so long for the next season and I do not know how I’m going to cope!

What song really gets you into the fall spirit?
Do Christmas songs count! I always start listening to Christmas songs way too early and they get me so ready for cold wintery weather and then get me so excited for the build up to the Christmas season!

So there we have it the feeing autumnal tag! As this is a tag I’m going to tag a few bloggers to do this as well so make sure you check out their blogs to see their answers! Also Let me know in the comments below your answers so we can all get ready and excited for autumn together.

Happy Friday Emma-Jayne Readers. It’s Friday during Blogvember which can only mean one thing; Fragrance Friday! Every Friday this month I am uploading a fragrance/perfume related post! This week it’s the turn of Gucci Bloom another new perfume that I’ve had for about 3 months. 


I Picked up Gucci Bloom in Duty free on my way to Rhodes over the summer at London Gatwick. They were promoting it as a new perfume and I was feeling a bit frivolous with my money and was easily sold to. I firstly fell in love with the simple classic clean bottle and then the fragrance to match was lovely.


Gucci describe the fragrance as: 

Debuting the first fragrance developed wholly under Alessandro Michele’s creative vision: a scent designed to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women—flourishing in a natural, expressive and individual way. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas under the direction of the House’s Creative Director, Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name, capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. Tuberose and jasmine combine with Rangoon Creeper—a unique flower discovered in South India that is being used for the first time in perfumery to create a rich fragrance that transports the wearer to an imaginary garden. The scent is presented in a lacquered bottle, reminiscent of porcelain, in a vintage powder pink shade with a Gucci label appliqué. 

Now ignoring all the waffle there, when I smell it, it is a clean floral fragrance with a light feel about it and when I wear this perfume it makes me feel fresh and clean. It sounds like a particularly spring and summer perfume, but there is a slightly musky undertone that I love and helps to take the floral scent into the autumn and winter.


When I've worn this perfume I find it long wearing and subtle with the musky smell predominantly staying on me. I love these musky fragrances and find that the drop in floral scents doesn’t bother me during the day. This is really a perfect afternoon evening scent for those time when its not appropriate to go for too much of a ‘sexy’ smell, but you want something with a little more oomph – such a evening drinks with the girls or even a day date.


Gucci bloom isn’t a cheap perfume retailing between £52 (30ml) and £99 (100ml) however I would recommend it – particularly if you can find it in a sale as it’s a lovely option to have in any collection. 

Let me know what your perfume loves are right now, I’m starting to get quiet a collection (but, am always on the look out for more!)

Here are a few of my most popular and frequently asked questions. If there is something you would like to know let me know in the comments below and I will be sure to add it in!

How old am I?
I have a bit of a baby face so this is one I get all the time I’m actually 25 so I’m fully into adulting.

Where am I from?
I’m from the UK and originally lived in a small village in Wiltshire near Bath. I now live in London in the best borough of Wandsworth.

What do I do?
When people ask this I think what they really want to know is if you blog full time – and I don’t. I work in a media agency predominantly on the digital performance side. It’s really interesting and great fun.

What camera do I use?
Mostly I use my iphone 6 camera and if not then it’s the Samsung WB250f. Ive recently upgraded my phone to the iphone 8 (the X was crazy expensive) and I’m saving up to purchase the Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II.

Why did I start blogging?
I started blogging back in 2013 as a way of doing something away from my assignments that would still help my writing. It was also an extension of my YouTube Channel (which now has very few videos on it) and I fell in love with it more.

Why Emma-Jayne?
Emma is my first name and Jayne is my middle, it's simple really!

Who takes my photos?
I mainly take my photos however if I need a full length photo then my boyfriend Jack will take one for me – note the one! It's one and no more!

What did I study?

-->
After A-levels I went to Aberystwyth University and studied for a BSC in Sport and Exercise Science which was really interesting and then I decided to do a MSC in Marketing at London South Bank University which was honestly one of the best decisions I made.

Let me know if your answer hasn't been answered in the comments below and I will of course answer it!
