The first month of spring has come to an end, and right now I’m enjoying my Easter holiday with my family, so this post is pre-scheduled. March was mostly based around exams and choir concerts in my case, so it was quite a tough month, but it ended with a holiday which was just what I needed:) Anyways, here’s 5 favourites from the month of March.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade: Oh dear, this highlighter is one of the most stunning things I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it took me so long to decide to buy it. If you’re obsessed with highlighters like I am, and you don’t already have this one in your collection, you should go buy it immediately.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: I’ve previously had a make-up sponge as a favourite, but that one was not good compared to this Real Techniques one. I love using the flat side to apply my foundation and the tip to blend out concealer.
Rimmel Metal Rush nail polish in 100 Pearly Queen: This is the first time I’ve had a nail polish as one of my 5 favourites which is mainly due to the fact that I usually wear a different nail polish each week. But in the beginning of this month I wore this nail polish two weeks in a row, because I just love they way it looks on the nails.
Maleficent (film): I absolutely love Disney films, and I’d been wanting to watch Maleficent since it came out last year, but I didn’t get around to it until this month. It wasn’t at all how I’d imagined it; it was way better! I’ve never been a fan of Angelina Jolie, but I think she’s brilliant in this film, and so stunning.
Disney Piano Collection by Hirohashi Makiko: I believe one of the reasons why I love Disney films as much as I do is the amazing music in them. A couple of months back, I discovered these incredible piano versions of famous Disney songs which I’ve had playing in the background while studying for my exams. They’re just so relaxing and beautiful. There are several more of these types of videos on YouTube, but this one has been the one I’ve been listening to the most. Enjoy!
Here’s the make-up I wore Monday March 2. As I wrote in this post I’ve been experimenting with black liner, and as you can see it turned out rather bold. I quite like it though, especially paired with a nude lip.

It’s not the first time I’ve dressed up as Holly Golightly at a costume party. It’s actually my go-to costume, and I think I’ve worn it 4-5 times by now. This time I wore it at a costume party at my dorm Saturday February 28 and I had a lot of fun:)

When I bought these MAC lippies online, I also bought this lipstick from the MAC Bao Bao Wan collection. It’s a limited edition shade, and it’s called Lavender Jade. When I saw it, I just couldn’t resist. It’s a matte lavender purple colour, and it’s so bright and so fun. Probably not the most wearable colour, but I love it! Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous too. Love the copper details.
Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 24. There’s not much to say about this outfit other than it’s a very ‘me’ outfit. I love comfortable, girly outfits.

Here’s the make-up I wore Monday February 23. I’m wearing the Rimmel Provocalips in the colour Play With Fire on my lips, and I love it. It’s such a great deep, but not too deep, red, and I’m actually wearing it today as well. I think a colour like this looks great paired with a golden/bronze eye. I just think a make-up look like this really dresses up a casual outfit.

I had been waiting for the MAC Toledo collection to come to Denmark, and when it finally did I was lucky enough to get my hands on the three products I wanted. Before I go further into details about the products (which are all limited edition), I just want to quickly adress the packaging of this collection. It might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but I personally love it. I think it’s so cool and different and pretty, and I love the rubbery texture of it.
I was actually a bit in doubt whether I should get one of the ombre blushers from the collection, but when I saw and swatch this one in store, I just had to have. I got the colour Azalea Blossom which goes from a light baby pink into a gorgeous purple. It’s very different from any other blusher I own, and I think it’s absolutely beautiful.
On the other hand I was not at all in doubt whether I should buy these lip products or not. For once I actually fell in love with the lipgloss (or lipglass I might say) at first and then decided to get the matching lipstick. They are both in the colour Oxblood which is a very strange name for nude lip products. Anyways, the lipglass has a bit of a pinky/mauve undertone, whereas the lipstick is a (matte) brown nude with a slightly peachy undertone. Nonetheless, they look incredible together, and I’m really happy I bought both of them.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. In late February/early March I experimented a lot with black liner, and this is one of the looks I did. I love the combination of a simple winged liner, long black curled lashes, and a pop of colour on the lips.

Lips: Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Transparent Lipliner in 001 Universal + Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in 29)
Here’s what I wore Thursday February 19 (when I wore my hair like this). Even though I love colours, I also enjoy wearing a black and white outfit every now and again. What I especially like about this outfit is the pattern mix. You have to be a bit careful when wearing different patterns together, but because of the fact that one of the patterns are stripes and that both patterns are of the same colours, it works very well in my opinion.

I tried out this new braided hairstyle about a month ago and I love it. It’s very similar to this hairstyle that I love to do, it’s just braided instead of twisted. It’s a really easy hairstyle to do, and if you don’t know how to French braid, you can always go with the twisted version.
