Just uploaded a brand new video after a seven month hiatus. Phew. I’m shocked at how easy it is to edit on my MacBook so I felt a little something inside that makes me want to post more. Now. Or tomorrow. Or very, very soon. Here’s what I was wearing in the video:

Dress from nelly.com
H&M necklace gifted from my colleages
Nail polish is L’Oreal Island In The Sun
Half Baked, High, Beware, Riff and Buck eyeshadow from UD
24/7 Perversion liquid liner from UD
Urban Decay Trap lashes
Urban Decay Sheer Obsessed lipstick

Oh, I also dyed my hair back to pastels. Really liking this purple/pink combo right now. I will probably always return to these colors I think.

Working girl / favorite makeup products

October 29, 2014

Lately I’ve been having a lot more days with makeup on, than days without and the products I use the most and work for me best has really stood out clear. I decided to share a little list of all my current favorite beauty products, since I usually get loads of question on instagram, tumblr and facebook about what I use. So here it is, easy peasy, everything about all of it in one place.
Skin products ♥

I use Makeup Forever Mat Primer to prime and perfect my skin. Then I either use a combo of Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 117 + Pro Finish Powder in 113 or a combo of Makeup Forever Mat Velvet Foundation in 20 and the pressed HD Powder. Favorite concealer is the Makeup Forever Full Cover concealer in shade 4. I always finish off with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray that I love.

Brows ♥
My favorite brow product is the Makeup Forever Aqua Brow applied with the 274 brush. I use shade 15 all over the brow and add a little shade 25 towards the end. I also like to use the Urban Decay ”Buck” eyeshadow applied with an angled brush and finish off with Nars’ Brow Gel in Athens.
Contour, highlight & blush ♥

I’ve been loving the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette – especially the highlighter is amazing and I use it on my cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow for that perfect glow. Also love the Illamasqua Nymph blush.

Eyes ♥
My absolute most favorite thing in the universe right now is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette that both smell and taste like chocolate (don’t ask, haha). I’ve been using it most days since I bought it and the gold shadow is the prettiest eyeshadow I have ever had. I’ve also been using the Urban Decay Naked2 palette a lot. For eyeliner the Makeup Forever Aqua Liner in 13 is what I love most and then either use Studio Sculpt Lash from MAC, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara or Smoky Lash from Makeup Forever. False lashes either  MUFE 14 or 15 ones.
Lips ♥
I love the Naked Lipgloss in Walk of Shame for everyday use, it makes my lips tingle and feel so soft so I reallyreally recommend it. Also love Makeup Forever Rouge Artiste Intense lipstick in number 23, 34 and 48 + the Makeup Forever Rouge Artiste Natural lipstick in 18N + MAC’s Saint Germain, as always.
Phew. That was a whole lotta info. Are you guys using any of these products yourself and is there any product you want to recommend for me to try out? Hope this post was helpful to you!

Tribal makeup for work

July 18, 2014

Since regular blogging is on hold for now, I figured I might as well try to post some makeup looks for work. Today the Makeup Forever girls and I picked a tribal theme – you can see all of us on instagram hereand this is what I wore, besides a nude lipstick that I didn’t have at home. This was kinda put together last minute and I was running out of several products, but the final result reminded me a bit of the girls from Rasputina, so I’m not complaining. 
Maybelline Satin liquid foundation
Makeup Forever full cover concealer
Makeup Forever HD powder
L’Oreal Carbon Gloss liquid liner
Makeup Forever Aqua Matic S-52
Makeup Forever eyeshadows

Days to recharge

January 24, 2014

This is what you’ll find me doing on days where I just need a break to reconnect with myself and find new energy. Shamelessly having breakfast in bed with a bunch of magazines and comfy, cuddly socks. Yoga on my carpet before taking a long shower, then pampering my skin with DIY masks, mixtures and different oils. Catching up on blogs and videos while eating lunch and sitting by my computer. Fixing my nails, hair and watching tons of movies will most likely also be on my list. 

What do you guys do on days like these?
