5 favourites – January

How are we already one month into 2018? I’ve been very busy starting my new job this month, and I just got the grade for my master’s thesis today, so now I have a master’s degree. I still can’t believe it. I hope you had a good start to the new year. I had a lot of favourites this month, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to five.

Vinrøde fløjlsbukser m. vide - H&M

Flared corduroy trousers: I’ve been obsessed with these amazing trousers this past month. The styling options are endless, and they’re really warm and comfortable too.

Sort bæltetaske

Black leather belt bag: I’d been wanting a simple belt bag like this one for a while, and I love it. It’s my new everyday bag. I wear it crossbody, and it’s not heavy, but it still fits a lot of stuff.

Silver plait ring by Jane Kønig: I’ve worn this ring almost everyday since I got it for Christmas. I love the simple, plaited design.

MAC Ricepaper 3

MAC eye shadow in Ricepaper: I’ve mostly worn very simple, neutral eye make-up this past month, and this eye shadow is what I’ve worn all over my eyelids. It’s very close to my skin colour, and it has a nice sheen to it (which is difficult to see in the picture).

The Greatest Showman (film): A couple of weeks ago I went to the cinema with my sisters to watch The Greatest Showman, and I loved it. The cast is great, and the music is incredible. Watch it if you haven’t already.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday November 15. This outfit made me realise how great of a colour combination blue and pink is. I really want to wear that stripy T-shirt again soon.

First impressions: Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Lash Extension mascara

DSC_4585

My favourite mascara (Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express) has been discontinued in Denmark, so I’m on a hunt for a new great mascara. I’ve heard a couple of beauty youtubers talk about this Essence mascara and how good it is, so I decided to try it out.

First impressions

It has a bristle wand, which I prefer over a plastic one, and I do think that it makes my lashes look voluminous. However, it is very difficult to remove from the skin without ruining my eye shadow, and it transfers a lot onto both the top of my eyelids and to the skin underneath my eyes. This is a huge problem for me in general, and I’ve found very few mascara that doesn’t transfer onto my skin throughout the day. The mascara was also slightly difficult to remove with regular eye make-up remover. I had high hopes for this mascara, but overall I’m not a fan. However, that doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you.

Darker

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I went for a darker eye make-up which I rarely do, but I just wanted to do something a bit different, and I thought it would look great with a red lip.

Blemish Control Face Primer + Wet n Wild CoverAll primer, foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), concealers – MAC Pro Longwear concealer (shade: NC20) + Maybelline Fit Me concealer (shade: 15) + L’Oréal True Match concealer (shade: 1 Ivory), powders – Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Light to Medium (shades: Banana + Vanilla) + Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless pressed powder (shade: 90 Translucent).
