Gorgeous red lip combo

DSC_8866DSC_8867

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I didn’t write down exactly what make-up I was wearing, but I know I’m wearing eye shadows from my Zoeva En Taupe palette and my Urban Decay Gwen Stefani lip pencil and lipstick in 714. I’m really loving this lip combo. The lip pencil goes on very smooth, and the lipstick has a gorgeous matte finish and stay all day on the lips.

Here’s what I wore at my youngest sister’s birthday party Saturday March 19. I would have worn some other shoes if it wasn’t for the fact that I’d only brought my Nike sneakers. I really like this dress though, and how my red lips pop.

Crazy about NYX

DSC_8965

I’ve been going a bit NYX crazy lately (I’ve also bought a few more NYX lippies since I took these pictures), but I think NYX is such a nice affordable brand and it recently made it’s way to a couple of Danish drugstores around the country, so I had to take advantage of that. Here’s what I’ve purchased:

DSC_8929DSC_8930

First off I purchased the Hightlight & Contour Pro Palette which I had been wanting to try for a while. I think I’ve worn at least one of the shades everyday since I bought it, and I have to say that I really like this palette. My favourite of the highlight shades is Cream which is the yellow shade, and my favourite of the contour shades is Sculpt which is the one right below Cream. If you’re looking for an affordable highlight/contour palette I would definitely recommend this one.

Mascara is one of the few products where I rarely ever experiment and try out new products, but I’ve always liked the idea of a coloured mascara and NYX has some really pretty colours to choose from. I picked the blue one, because it was the least out there colour, and I’m really impressed by this product. I didn’t expect for it to be as pigmented as it is, and is doesn’t flake and holds the curl all day long. I would love to try out some of the other colours as well.

I purchased one of the butter glosses. I had one of these already before I purchased this one, so I knew I liked the formula. This one is in the shade Tiramisu and it’s a very nice neutral colour that works on top of a lot of different neutral lip colours.

The soft matte lip cream is a product I’ve been wanting to try for a really long time as well. I purchased three shades (from the left); Antwerp, Cannes, and Transylvania. I like the mousse-like formula and the completely matte finish, and they don’t feel too drying on the lips. The two lighter shades are really opaque and even on the lips, whereas the dark shade is a bit more patchy and needed to be built up with a couple of layers. All shades are gorgeous though, and I would love to get my hands on more of these.

When I saw that the Liquid Suede cream lipsticks came in some fun and different colours, I had to try out a couple of them. I chose the shades Amethyst and Stone Fox. I haven’t worn Amethyst (the purple one) yet, but I really like the Stone Fox shade which is a dark blueish grey. It’s really pigmented and such a cool colour. I would love to get some more colours from this lipstick line as well. The next two pictures shows swatches of the lip products in the order I’ve mentioned them. The first pictures is without flash; the second is with flash.

Pretty cranberry

DSC_8838

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’ve for sure worn a make-up look similar to this before, and I think it’s so pretty. That MAC Cranberry eye shadow is one of the prettiest eye shadow colours I’ve ever seen, and I really should wear it more often.

Red booties

Here’s what I wore Wednesday March 9. I hadn’t worn my red booties in a really long time, so I paired them up with some cuffed boyfriend jeans and a glittery sweater, and I think it turned out to be a very nice everyday outfit.

Deep matte reds

I little while ago I was happy to find that the Danish drugstores had started carrying matte ColorSensational lipsticks from Maybelline. I decided to purchase these two gorgeous red shades; 970 Daring Ruby and 975 Divine Wine. I’ve only worn the Daring Ruby shade so far, and I loved it. The formula of these lipsticks is great; the pigmentation is amazing, it’s not drying on the lips, and it’s long lasting. I would love to see this lipstick range expand with some more colours.

Minimal eye make-up

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Every now and again I like to wear minimal eye make-up and a bright lip.

‘Shorter’ hair

DSC_8812DSC_8813DSC_8814

Here’s what I wore Monday March 7. These pictures were taken two days after I got my hair cut, and it’s the shortest my hair has been since I was in my early teens. I know it’s not short at all, but I’m used to having really long hair, so I’m just now starting to get used to it (it has obviously grown a little bit since I got it cut). I guess I have to get my hair cut more often, so it won’t be too big of a change.

Accent nails

DSC_8571DSC_8179DSC_6290DSC_8311

I’ve been a bit boring when painting my nails lately, so I thought I would give myself and you some inspiration. My favourite way to make my nails a bit more interesting is by painting one (or maybe two) of my nails on each hand in a different colour than the rest. It’s extremely easy, it doesn’t take longer than painting all of your nails in the same colour, and it looks good. I guess I just have to come up with some new colour combos and get back in the nail game.

Too orange?

DSC_8803DSC_8796

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m not really sure if this orange lipstick suits me. I think I might be a bit too pale to pull it off, but I love the colour, so I’ll continue to wear it anyways.
