Another month has passed, and I really can’t believe how fast time flies. September was all about Uni, and it won’t be long before my next exam. Weatherwise it has actually started to feel like autumn (we were blessed with a very warm first half of September), and even though I don’t enjoy the cold weather, I’m looking forward to be putting together autumn outfits. But before we jump further into the autumn season, here are some of my favourite things from the past month.
White sandals by VRS: Because the weather was so lovely in the first half of September, I got to wear sandals a lot. I’m so happy I bought these white ones in the end of August, because I’ve worn them a ton.
MAC eye shadow in Nylon: This has quickly become my new favourite eye shadow from MAC. It’s the perfect inner corner and browbone highlight, and I’ve worn it almost every day the past weeks.
Milani powder blush in 01 Romantic Rose: This is pretty much the perfect blusher for any make-up look. It’s matte, it delivers the perfect amount of pigment and it just looks beautiful on the cheeks.
MAC Trip the Light Fantastic powder in Luna Luster: Initially I didn’t think I would purchase anything from the Star Trek collection, but I’m so happy that I decided to get this highlighter. Even though I’m a bit dissappointed the the cheap-feeling packaging the product itself is just gorgeous, and it has been one of my most worn highlighters this past month.
Bridget Jones’s Baby (film): I’m a huge Bridget Jones fan, so I was really looking forward to watch the newest addition to the Bridget Jones franchise. This film is just as good as the former two (which I’ve watched a million times); it’s so funny and sweet and I just loved it.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I had such a hard time doing my eyeliner (which is why I rarely do winged liner), so it’s far from perfect. I really like how my skin looks though; the MAC Trip the Light Fantastic powder in Luna Luster gives the skin a beautiful glow. The lipstick is awesome too.

Here’s what I wore Thursday September 1. It was the first time I wore my new black bomber, and I’ve worn it quite a bit since then. It has definitely become one of my favourite pieces of clothing.

As I’ve mentioned I’ve been really into the metallic lip trend lately, but I’ve always been loving metallic nails. This dark blue purple is a gorgeous colour, and I hadn’t worn a dark nail colour in a really long time, so I loved wearing this.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I think this bright red lip is super pretty, but because of the creamy/glossy formula my hair kept sticking to it. I guess I just have to wear my hair up the next time I wear this lipstick.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday August 31. A lot of people tend to wear a lot of black, me included, but I also love an outfit that has no black items whatsoever.

I’ve never watched Star Trek, but I couldn’t resist these limited edition MAC Star trek products. Of course I purchased one of the lipsticks, and once again I purchased a highlighting product from a limited edition MAC collection.
The highlighter is the Trip the Light Fantastic powder in the shade Luna Luster. I’m quite dissappointed in the quality of the packaging which feels very cheap, but as you can see the product itself is very beautiful and that’s what’s most important. It’s a peachy champagne colour and quite shimmery, but really pretty on the skin.
The lipstick is called Kling-It-On and it has a frost finish. As you can see it’s a very unique shade; it’s described as a deep purple with fine pink glitter. It’s a bit sheer, but you can build it up to some extend. The next time I’m going to wear it I’ll fill in my entire lip with a lip liner and then apply the lipstick on top.
