Everyday Life Favorites Saline Simon

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!

Job interview look

June 19, 2014

Sweet As Candy headband – vintage earrings – Asos dress
Oh my, it’s been so long since I did a look of the day. The shame. Anywaysies, today I went to an amazing job interview and it went so well. Do you know that feeling of being so happy and excited that you just wanna squeal even though you’re surrounded by people in the middle of public? That’s how I felt when I left. If I actually squealed or not will remain unknown, but I have such a great feeling about this. Next friday at 10 I will have to go to a makeup test with a model of my own choice, so cross your fingers for me guys, and hope it will be fabulous! This job is so perfect for me, so hopefully I will have good news shortly. Eeeep, the excitement.

Purple bun and doll eyes

December 14, 2013
On thursday I was turning my sleeping pattern around, so in these photos I hadn’t slept for just around twenty hours (a total of thirtytwo hours when I finally slept!!) so as you guys can probably guess I was wearing my bodyweight in Illamasqua concealer, went as overboard as I could with my L’oreal Carbon Gloss liquid liner, a tiny amount of random grey eyeshadow to fill in my brows and crease, a bit of Illamasqua’s Nymph blush bring back some color to my face, MAC Saint Germain lipstick, Silver Dusk as highlighter both on my cupid’s bow and cheekbones and finally some very cheap eyelashes from eBay that looks something like this – they’re horrible to apply because they’re way too firm, but I like the way they look. Oh and I’m also wearing this eyeliner on my waterline to reduce redness.

     As every other blogger and more too I have been in love with Chanel’s new eyebrow trend. They are made from an anthracite grey sequin and pearl base and different shades of mineral stones and crystals are embroidered on it. They glue the eyebrows on to the models own eyebrows and it looks absolutely fabulous and insane. I’m going to visit my grandmother this weekend and I think I’m gonna try to DIY some Chanel eyebrows, I’m always doing something creative when I visit her, like last where I made my Jeremy Scott inspired bone hairclip. I don’t think it will be too hard to re-create at all.

I didn’t feel like doing my eyebrows today. I’ve been liking the no eyebrow look for a while now and I’ve even been thinking about growing my eyebrows back and bleaching them. It would be fun to see if my eyebrows even want to grow back after 6 years of shaving. 
What do you guys think about the bleached brows look?
