Everyday Life Favorites Saline Simon

Working girl / favorite makeup products

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!

Back from Copenhagen

June 11, 2013

I went to Copenhagen thursday and met up with my friend Peter in MAC, we then went to Kongens Have with beer and enjoyed the lovely weather. When we came home we ate pizza from the pizza place down the street (several times that weekend!) The next day Peter had to work, so I met up with an old friend who took me to Assistentens Kirkegård with beer and later to a pub where she bought me my first shot of fernet branca. That was sort of horrible, but we had fun and later Peter and I got drunk, did makeup and listened to loud music all night.On saturday we went out to Club Christopher with a bunch of friends and partied all night, I even wrote in a taxicab in the early morning haha. I felt awful when I came back home yesterday but today I have been experimenting with some new MAC goodies Peter gave me and reading this months’ Cover. I am so taking a break from partying. Did you guys have a great weekend too?

MAC GOODIES

Snob lipstick – Saint Germain lipstick – 217 brush – Vanilla pigment

I had to restock on my Saint Germain lipstick since I was running out and decided to buy a few more things. When we moved all my favorite makeup brushes disappeared so I am currently re-buying them all again. I’m also looking forward to trying the Snob lipstick, the shade is absolutely beautiful. I guess having hangovers aren’t that bad when you receive new makeup.

Saint Germain overload.

 A follower on tumblr wrote me and told me that a new lipglass + nail polish from MAC is coming out and thank you so much for that. If you have read my blogs or watched my videos for a long time you probably have noticed my obsession with the original Saint Germain lipstick. I literally wear it everyday and to me it’s the perfect shade of pink. I am really excited, but I heard that the two new items will only come out in North America. I will try to get my hands on them and do a review as soon as possible though. Hooray.
