Little minx

DSC_7448rediDSC_7445

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Because my outfit was really simple, I wanted to do a bit more dramatic make-up look and I really like how it turned out. I’m wearing the Rimmel Provocalips in Little Minx on my lips, and if you haven’t tried the Rimmel Provocalips, you should. They’re incredibly long lasting; perfect for partying all night:)

Summer LBD

DSC_7442DSC_7439DSC_7441

Here’s what I wore at a party Saturday August 22. I wanted to wear a dress and heels, but I still wanted my outfit to be rather comfortable. I decided on a loose LBD and wedge sandals, and it was just perfect.

More liner

DSC_7415DSC_7435

Here’s the make-up I wore Thursday August 20. I’m experimenting a lot with liner these days, and I think this simple winged liner look turned out quite nice (after redoing the liner twice on one eye and 3-4 times on the other). I wore a nude lip to keep the focus of the eyes.

5 favourites – August

The last official summer month will be over by tomorrow which I find really sad, but then again, I had a great month, and I’m already slowly starting to look forward to Christmas (I know, crazy). In August I had my last three weeks of summer holiday (uni started again last week) which I spent with friends and family and I had some great times. I had a lot of favourites this month and it was quite difficult to narrow it down to 5, but these are the ones that made the cut:)

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent: I’m pretty sure I’ve only heard good things about this powder, and I have to agree; it’s a great powder. It leaves you skin matte for such a long time + it’s very affordable. I’m a fan!

Stila In the Light eye shadow palette: I’ve had this palette over a year, and I’ve been loving it since day one, but this month in particular I’ve been wearing it non stop. My two most worn shades have been Bliss and Kitten. You can get a closer look at the palette here.

e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator: When you wear lipstick on a daily basis, you sometimes have to take extra care of your lips and it doesn’t have to be expensive. This lip exfoliator is so affordable and it helps removing dry chapped skin from your lips and keeping them nice and soft.

Pitch Perfect 2 (film): On my birthday I invited my sisters to go watch Pitch Perfect 2 with me at the cinema. I love the first one, so I was very excited about the second one, and I was not disappointed. I love music, and I’m in a choir myself, so these films definitely appeals to me, and I’m surely going to watch this again some time.

The Sims 4 + The Sims 4 Get to Work (computer game): The Sims 4 is without a doubt my favourite favourite this month. I got the base game and the Get to Work expansion pack for my birthday and I’ve played it a ton since. I’ve been playing The Sims more than 10 years now (both the original one and The Sims 2; I don’t own The Sims 3 though), and I don’t think I’ll ever get to old to play these games:)

4 from Rimmel

DSC_7339DSC_7340

A couple of weeks ago there was a 3 for 2 deal on Rimmel make-up, and I had to take advantage of that:) I had to try one of the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipsticks from the new nude range. I chose 45 which is a mauvy, pinky nude. I also picked up another Rimmel Provocalips, because they’re so good, and I’ve been wanting the hot pink shade for a really long time (it’s called 310 Little Minx). The last Rimmel 3 for 2 product I picked up was the Stay Matte powder in 001 Transparent, and I love it. I’ve been wearing it everyday since I bought it. I also found a Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick on sale. It’s in the colour 330 Sloane’s Plum and is a gorgeous deep plum.

Pistachio

Here’s the make-up I wore Monday August 17. I wanted to try out some of these products, especially one of the lipsticks. I decided to try out the one in Pistachio and as you can see it’s very vibrant and pigmented. It’s definitely not the most wearable colour, but I love it.

(Base: primer – Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro primer 002, foundation – Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude foundation (shade: 100 Ivory), concealers – MAC Pro Longwear concealer (shade: NC20) + L’Oréal True Match concealer (shade: 1 Ivory), powders – Barry M Flawless Chisel Cheeks contour kit (highlight shade) + Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed powder (shade: 001 Transparent). Face make-up: contour/bronzer – Barry M Flawless Chisel Cheeks contour kit (contour shade) + The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing powder (shade: 02 fair matte), blusher – MAC Mineralize blush in Modest Blush, highlighter – the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer.

Cocopanda haul

DSC_7358

Two weeks ago I ordered some products from the Danish online beauty store Cocopanda.dk and I received the parcel Monday last week. These are some products I’ve been wanting for a long time, so I’m really excited about them.

DSC_7362DSC_7367

First of all I had to pick up the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter by the Balm. I’ve been craving this highlighter for ages, and I’m so glad that it’s finally mine. It’s such a beautiful, pigmented champagne highlighter; perfect for most skin tones.

DSC_7377DSC_7382

Some other products I’ve been craving are the NYX Macaron lippies. I love trying out new lip colours, and this lipstick line has a range of fun, ‘out there’ colours. I picked up Pistachio and Blue Velvet. I haven’t worn Blue Velvet yet, but I was very impressed by the pigmentation and staying power of Pistachio.

The last item (or couple of items) I purchased was the Real Techniques Sculpting Set. I love Real Techniques brushes and I was drawn to this set. It has a sculpting brush, a fan brush, and a setting brush and they’re all very good.
