In this post I mentioned that I had bought another highlighter as well, and here it is. I’ve been craving the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade for ages, and about a month ago I finally bought it, and I’m so glad I did. It’s the most gorgeous pearly, champagne shade; perfect for fair skin. You can apply it very lightly for a subtle highlight, but you can also build it up for a more intense look. I know this is not the most affordable highlighter, but I definitely think it’s worth the money. If you’re looking for a good drugstore highlighter, I’ll recommend the e.l.f. Baked Blush in Pink Tastic.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. If you’re one of those girls who swear by neutral eye shadows, but want to experiment with colour, a great way of starting out is by applying a colour along your lower lash line. I used a dusty blue shade in this look which I think looks great paired with a soft, red lip.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday February 18. I really like the colour combination of this look. I think the dusty blue colour looks great with the white and black checked jeans. And I love how white trousers make your legs look really long.

There’s nothing like pretty, highlighted cheekbones to complete a make-up look. My favourite highlighter for the past year or so has been the Stila All Over Shimmer Duo Highlighter in Kitten, but I thought it was time to mix it up a bit in the highlight department, so I bought two new highlighters last month. One of them is this e.l.f. Baked Blush in the colour Pink Tastic. The name says it’s a blusher, but it’s definitely a highlighter. I’d heard so many good things about this highlighter, and it really is a great product and so affordable. It has a slight peachy pink tint to it, and you can really build it up if you want an intense highlight, but you can also dust it lightly over the skin for a more subtle sheen. I really like this highlighter, but I like the other one I bought even more, but more about that in another post.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing one of the Rimmel Provocalips (200 I’ll Call You) and I love it! They’re in general super long lasting and feel great on the lips when you wear the ‘lock and shine’ balm on top.

When I was in high school I usually bought a lot of clothes at one shopping trip, but the past few years my clothes shopping pattern has been more like buying one or two items here and there, but a few weeks back I actually bought four items at once. I unintentionally destoyed my black jeans a while back, so I needed to buy a new pair, and I found a pair of affordable skinny and stretchy ones at H&M, and so far I like them. Several years ago I found a picture online of a sweatshirt with dinosaurs on it, and ever since I’ve been wanting a sweatshirt with a dinosaur print, and as you can see I was lucky enough to find two on my ‘big’ shopping trip. I think both of them are super cute; I’ve worn the mint green one, and I loved it, and I’m looking forward to wear the grey one as well. The last item I bought was the pretty, black kimono in the last picture. It was really affordable, and I think it’ll be great for spring and summer.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze without any shadows on top; I just blending out the edges with a matte midtone brown and added a bit of gold to the inner conners. I think it’s such a nice, subtle, bronze look which looks gorgeous paired with a berry lip.

My mum, sisters, and aunt went on a day-trip to Flensburg about three weeks ago, and my sister bought these two products for me. I love highlighters, so I really wanted to try out the Essence soo glow! cream to powder highlighter. I got the shade 10 which is a champagne colour. It is a cream to powder product, and it looks very pretty when you swatch it, but when you blend it out, it basically just blends out to a lot of shimmer (and probably a bit too much shimmer for my liking). I haven’t played around with it much yet, so I’ll definitely try to find a way to make it work. I also got the Maybelline Fit Me! concealer which I’ve been wanting to try for a long time, but sadly even though I got the lightest shade (10), it’s still a bit too dark for my skintone right now, so I have to wait to use it until I (hopefully) get a bit tanned.
