Another month has come to an end, and I can’t believe how fast time goes by. June was probably the toughest month ever exam wise, but now I’m enjoying my summer holiday. I wish the warm weather would come back soon though. Anyways, before we jump right into July, here’s some om my favourite things from the month of June.
Black gladiator sandals by Vagabond: In the beginning of June the weather in Denmark was amazing, and I think I wore these sandals everyday for week. I bought them a couple of years ago, but the Danish weather is rarely warm enough to wear sandals, so I hadn’t used them much until recently. I love them because they remind me of something the characters from Disney’s Hercules would wear, and Hercules is my favourite Disney film.
MAC lip pencil in Soar: As I wrote here, I’d been wanting this lip pencil for so long, so when it was finally back in stock I purchased it, and I love it. It’s such a beautiful brown pink mauve colour that goes with so many different lip colours and it also looks gorgeous on its own.
MAC Prep + Prime Fix +: Another MAC product I’ve loved this past month and that I’m sure I’ll continue to love is the famous Fix + finishing spray. I love that this product has several purposes; it makes your skin look and feel lovely, and it’s amazing for intensifying eye shadows.
Marc Jacobs Honey perfume: I got this perfume about a year ago, and I’ve always loved it, but it’s been my go-to scent this past month because I find that it’s quite summery.
Me Before You (film): Ever since I first saw the trailer for this film, I knew I wanted to watch it. I went to the cinema with a friend two days ago to watch it, and I wasn’t disappointed. It was such a sweet film with lovely characters, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t shed a tear (or two).
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m getting more and more into nude lips, and this NYX soft matte lip cream in Cannes is a good one.

Here’s what I wore Friday May 20. I love this black, white, and burgundy colour combination. And I love when you put together an outfit and then discover that everything you’re wearing is from the same brand.

I placed an order on Beautybay.com a little while ago and I thought I would show you what I purchased.
The products I was most excited to try were the liquid lipsticks from L.A. Splash. I ordered three different kinds to test the formulas out, and I’ll make an updating post about these when I’ve tried all of them out. I got a Lip Couture in Ghoulish, a Studio Shine Lip Lustre in Catrina, and a Velvetmatte in Flix n Chill.
In my last Beautybay order I purchased two Makeup Geek blushers which I love, so I thought I would finally try out Makeup Geek eye shadows. I chose Cupcake (dusty pink) and Chickadee (warm yellow) which are both matte shadows. I haven’t worn Cupcake yet, but I’ve used Chickadee to warm up my crease a couple of times and it looked very pretty.
I also purchased two more Morphe brushes; M411 and M510. M411 is a more precise crease brush and M510 I use for highlighting. Morphe brushes are really good quality brushes for affordable prices.
Lastly, I purchased some Ardell Demi Wispies false lashes and some Duo lash adhesive. I would like to wear false lashes more often on special occasions.
And then I also got a free gift. I chose a sample size Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear brow gel which I’m excited to try out as soon as I’ve used up the brow gel I’m using at the moment.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I really love grey and pink together, so I matched my make-up to my T-shirt.

Here’s what I wore Thursday May 19. I love a bit of pink, and I think these pink trousers and my grey Barbie T-shirt are a great match.

Here’s the make-up I wore Tuesday May 17. This dark purple lipstick is so beautiful, bold, and unique, and I love it.
