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.
(Skirt – Gina Tricot, crop top – H&M, sandals – Vagabond)
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.
(Trousers + necklace – H&M, T-shirt – Primark, sneakers – Converse)
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.
