Another month has come to an end, and the last official summer month will start tomorrow. I really wish the summer weather would make an appearance soon. We’ve only had about 4-5 days of real summer in Denmark in the beginning of the month, but despite the not-so-summery weather, July was still a great month. I had a friend visiting me for 16 days and we had a great time. I’ve also spent a lot of time with my family and all in all my holiday has been great so far. Here’s a few favourites from the month of July.
MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study: Last year in my July favourites post I also featured a paint pot, and this time it’s the Bare Study one. I’ve used it almost every day since I bought it; either as a base or on it’s own.
MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NC20: Another MAC product I’ve been loving this month. I use it to cover up spots and redness, and I think it’s a great concealer for that purpose.
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kissed: I did a bit of shopping at Sephora when I went to Copenhagen with my friend earlier this month, but I haven’t had the opportunity to make a Sephora haul post yet. One of the products I bought was this liquid lipstick, and it’s so good. It dries completely matte and it’s really pigmented and long lasting + the colour is gorgeous.
Cooking Academy Restaurant Royale (iPad game): I love cooking games (though I don’t like to cook in real life), and I’ve played this one on/off for almost a year, but because of the summer holiday I’ve actually had time to play games on my iPad, and this is the game I’ve been playing the most.
Magic Mike XXL (film): I was very disappointed in the first Magic Mike film (like many others), but my friend and I decided to give the second one a go anyways, and this time I wasn’t disappointed. The first film was very serious and a bit boring to be frank, but XXL was the male stripper comedy most people (especially women I guess) had wished for the first film to be. It was obviously not the most fantastic film I’ve ever watched, but it was very entertaining, and I wouldn’t mind watching it again;)
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wore my MAC Up the Amp lipstick for the first time, and I fell in love with it instantly. The simple, shimmery eye make-up has been my go-to summer look.
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study, eye shadows – Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (shades: Milk Chocolate + White Chocolate), mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Feather-Look Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Transparent Lipliner in 001 Universal + MAC Up the Amp lipstick)
Here’s what I wore Thursday July 2. The weather was amazing in Denmark in the beginning of July, and I have a couple more summer outfits to show you.

As I mentioned in this post I’ve done a lot of shopping lately, and here’s some make-up I bought at the drugstore. I’ve been wanting to try the L’Oréal Lumi Magique primer for a while and so far I like it. I haven’t tried the L’Oréal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation yet, but I’m interested in seeing how matte it really is. I found the mascara, blusher, and lip liner really cheap on sale. I like the mascara, but not as much as I like the regular The Falsies mascara. I already knew that I would like the blusher, because I have one in another colour, but I haven’t tried the lip liner yet, so I’m looking forward to try it.
Here’s what I wore Tuesday June 30. I went to a barbercue party, you might call it, with some friends that day, and the weather was really nice, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to wear my pink trousers.

Here’s the make-up I wore Monday June 29. I wanted to match my make-up to my T-shirt (which has some blue on it that you can’t see in the pictures) and this is what I came up with; quite colourful and I like it:)
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MUA Ever After matte eye shadow palette (shades: Fade + Fog) + Sleek Vintage Romance eye shadow palette (shade: Pretty in Paris) + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade on browbone, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 245 Audacious)
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. One of my favourite party eye make-up looks paired with one of my favourite lipsticks; a match made in heaven.
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MUA Ever After matte eye shadow palette (shades: Bare + Fade) + Stila In the Light eye shadow palette (shades: Ebony + Kitten) + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade on browbone, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Transparent Lipliner in 001 Universal + MAC No Faux Pas lipstick)
Here’s what I wore Friday June 26. I went out dancing with a friend to celebrate the beginning of my summer holiday and it was a lot of fun. Because we were going to dance all night, I decided to wear flats, and I went with my Topshop slip-ons which suited the outfit quite well I think.

As you might know I didn’t shop much at all in April, May, and June, but in this month I got back on the shopping track, and I’ve bought quite a lot, so I should probably start saving again soon. I’ll show you what I’ve bought in several posts. First up are these three products from MAC. My MAC obsession grows bigger by the hour, and I’ve been wanting to add these products to my collection in ages. I’ve been craving the lipstick in Up the Amp for about 9 months and I can’t believe I didn’t buy it sooner. It’s the most gorgeous, wearable, purple shade, and I’m obsessed with it. Next I bought the Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study with the intention of using it for an easy and quick summer eye make-up, and I’ve worn it most days since I bought it. Lastly, I’ve bought the Pro Longwear concealer because I’m almost running out of my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (which is amazing), and I’d heard that it should be really good. I’ve got the shade NC20, and so far I really like it.
