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

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

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?

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.

Black with pops of colour

Here’s what I wore Friday March 4. I love that the sweatshirt has different pops of colour which makes the look a little less black and gives me plenty of opportunities to play around with my make-up.
