April has come to an end, and we’ve finally experienced some warmer weather here in Denmark (though it is getting a bit colder again in a few days). I’ve been busy at work in April, but thankfully there was a holiday in the middle of the month. I had a lot of favourites in April, and these are my top 5.
Denim overalls: I’d been wanting a pair of denim overalls for ages, and these Monki ones are exactly what I’d been looking for. I’ve worn them so much this past month; they’re just so comfy.
Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation (shade: Soft Ivory): I did a first impressions post on this foundation in March, and the more I’ve worn it the more I’ve liked it. The coverage is really good, and the staying power is great.
Revolution Conceal & Define concealer (shade: C2): I did a first impressions post on this concealer just last week (though I tested it and wrote down my first impressions in the beginning of April), and it has been my most used concealer this past month. I really enjoy the formula and the finish of this product.
Avengers: Endgame (film): As the MCU fan that I am, I was really excited about this film, and it did not disappoint. It didn’t feel like a three hour long film, which definitely shows that it was entertaining all the way through. I can’t wait to re-watch this one day.
Paris, Lisboa – Salvador Sobral (album): I’ve featured Salvador Sobral’s music in several 5 favourites posts before, and in the end of March he came out with his second studio album. It’s such a beautiful album; I’ve been listening to it on repeat this past month, and I’ll probably continue to do so for quite a while still.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my favourite make-up brands, and I’m always excited about new launches. The only item from the Blue Blood collection that got me really excited was of course the Blue Blood palette. I’ve never seen an eyeshadow palette like this one before, and it’s absolutely stunning. The quality is fantastic as always, and I can’t wait to create tons of beautiful looks with this palette (some of which I’ll post of course).
Here’s what I wore Tuesday April 23. It’s finally warm enough for me to wear my beloved Adidas Superstar 80s Primeknit sneakers again (the knitted fabric is very thin). I also hadn’t worn these beige trousers in over six months, so I had a lot of fun styling them again.

Here’s what I wore Friday (night) April 12. I went to my cousin’s birthday party. I really wanted to wear my zebra print jeans again, and I decided to dress them up with a shirt and a blazer, but I didn’t want to be too dressy, so I wore my Nike Cortez sneakers.

I’ve heard so many great things about the Revolution Conceal & Define concealer, so I thought I would give it a try, and here are my first impressions.
The concealer has a very big doe-foot applicator, and at first I was a bit sceptic about that, but it’s actually really easy to use. The coverage is really good, and the product looks really smooth on the skin. It was really easy to blend out with a sponge, and it also blended in beautifully with my foundation. The picture was taken right after application, but the concealer still looked great after 12 hours of wear. It was really easy to remove with micellar cleasing water. All in all this is a great concealer, and it’s really affordable too.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love this warm neutral eye look. The glitter is one of the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadows, and they’re some of the best glittery eye products.

Here’s what I wore Thursday April 11. I absolutely love this outfit! I love the mix of the leopard print and the floral print, and the brown western boots with the brown midi skirt is a match made in heaven.
