I can’t believe that the first month of 2015 is over by tomorrow. It was a tough month with exams, and this week uni started again, but it was a good month as well. I just occured to me that I’ve been doing these 5 favourites posts for a whole year now, and I’m definitely going to continue doing them. So without further ado, here’s my first favourites of 2015.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Gel-Cream Eyeshadow (colour: 35-On and on Bronze): I’m so glad that this Color Tattoo finally came to Denmark, because it’s gorgeous. It looks beautiful on its own, but it’s also a perfect base for bronze/gold/brown eye shadow looks.
The Body Shop Honey Bronzer (colour: 02 Fair Matte): This bronzer is the perfect matte bronzer for fair skin. Especially for everyday use where you might not want a too heavily bronzed face. I would definitely recommend this stunning product.
Pernille Corydon gold leaf earrings: I’ve been wearing a lot of gold jewellery this month (to match my go-to eye make-up) and these earrings that I got for Christmas has been my favourites. I love how simple and pretty they are, and I’ve worn them so much.
Turbie Twist: I didn’t learn about the existence of the Turbie Twist until last Autumn, but I was definitely intrigued. Luckily, I got a two-pack on my gift advent calendar, and I think they’re genius. If any of you haven’t heard of the Turbie Twist, it’s a super-absorbent hair towel. I find it very lightweight and perfect if you don’t have a lot of time to wait for your hair to dry.
Kongens Have – TopGunn: I have a very different favourite song this month. I don’t listen to a lot of Danish music and especially not hip hop and dancehall. The reason I got to listen to this particular song was because the Danish rapper and producer Topgunn was to be one of the judges on Denmark’s Got Talent. I knew him by name, but I wasn’t very familiar with his music, so I went on to Youtube and listened to a bunch of his songs, and the only one that caught my attention (and which I did recognise) was Kongens Have. I find it quite different from his other songs which I’m not very fond of, but there’s something about this one that made me listen to it over and over again this past month. I think it’s the melody and I like the use of e.g. brass instruments.
I know I’ve posted a similar make-up look not too long ago, but this has been one of my go-to looks recently. I just think a bronze eye paired with a berry lip is a gorgeous combo.

Lips: Revlon Colourburst Balm Stain in 005 Crush)
I had no idea that Real Techniques had found its way to Denmark, but as soon as I found out I picked up the Miracle Complexion sponge and the Stippling brush. I love the Miracle Complexion sponge; I’ve used it to apply my foundation every single day since I bought it. I bought the Stippling brush, because I wanted to experiment more with cream blushers, and so far I like this brush as well. There’s a couple of more brushes that I would like to add to my collection, so I might pick those up some other time.
I was serious when I wrote that I wanted to get back to doing more nail posts and get more creative in the nail department, but I thought I would start out with something easy. Like throwing a confetti top coat on top of a coloured nail polish. So easy, and really cute, I think. I didn’t even think about the fact that wearing this top coat on top of a white nail polish would make my nails look like dalmatians, but I don’t mind. The nail polishes I’m wearing are Nail Paint by Barry M in Matt White and L’Oréal Color Riche nail polish in Confettis.
I know you’ve seen a couple of magenta eye looks on the blog before, but I just love that type of colour. I’m especially satisfied with this look, and if you like magenta shades you have to get your hands on the Sleek Vintage Romance eye shadow palette! The colours are absolutely gorgeous.

Lips: Revlon Colourburst Balm Stain in 001 Honey)
I think I might have a thing for grey sweatshirts:) When I saw this one on a sales rack at H&M a few weeks back, I knew I had to have it. I love the floral print which make me want to do pretty, colourful make-up looks.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I really like the subtle plum shades on the eyes and I think the pinky nude lips are a good match.

Lips: ModelCo Illusion Nude Lip Liner + Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in 006 Pink Blush)
Here’s what I wore Wednesday December 17. This is the last outfit I have to show you from 2014. It’s kind of school girl-ish, and I like it.

I bought these three amazing products in the beginning of the month. I’ve been wanting these items for so long, and I’m really glad that I finally bought them. The brush is a MAC 217 which is probably the most famous MAC brush. It’s a great brush for applying and blending eye shadow. The bronzer is The Body Shop Honey bronzer which I’ve been swatching in stores so many times, and I can’t believe I didn’t purchase it sooner. I got the shade 02 and it’s the perfect matte bronzer for fair-skinned girls like me. And last but not least the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze finally came to Denmark, and I had regretted not bying it when I was in England, so I had to pick one up, and I love it.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I don’t wear blue eye shadows that often, but I think these smokey blues looked quite nice.
