Lots of purple looks

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wore a lot of purple make-up looks around this time, but then again when am I not wearing a lot of purple make-up looks.

MAC Magnificent Moon collection

Today’s haul is a small one. I purchased three products from the MAC Magnificent Moon collection when it released, and I thought I would share them with you.

The Extra Dimension Skinfinish x4: Surrounded by Stars palette is the star of the collection in my opinion. It comes with four shades; one hightlight shade and three blushes – at least on my skintone. The shades are Oh Darling!, Hushed Tone, Surrounded By Stars, and Hard To Get. I think the packaging of this collection is really pretty, but just look at the actually product; so detailed and so stunning!

The other two products I picked up from the collection are a lipstick in the shade Skies Above and a lip pencil in the shade Spice. Skies Above is a limited edition shade, but Spice is a permanent shade in the lip pencil range that I didn’t already own. I’m wearing all three products here.

Old favourite purple

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. For this look I pulled out one of my old favourite purple lipsticks, MAC’s Up The Amp, and I kind of fell in love with it all over again.

(Base: primer – Urban Decay All Nighter face primer, foundation – L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear foundation (shade: 015 Porcelain), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powder – Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder.

More golden eyes

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I don’t know what came over me at this time, but I wore another golden eye look. This time I used the Natasha Denona Gold palette, which seemed like an obvious choice for a golden eye look.

Rediscovering teals

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love my Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blue Blood palette, but for some reason I haven’t used the teal shades in the palette very much. I’m glad that I rediscovered them, because I think this eye look is so pretty.

(Base: primer – NYX Angel Veil primer, foundation – L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear foundation (shade: 015 Porcelain), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + e.l.f.

Collective haul (March)

I have a collective haul to share with you today. This haul consists of both clothes and make-up and all items were purchased in March.

I’ve already talked about this blue retro floral matching set from Monki, so I won’t say anything other than I love it, and that it’s one of my favourite clothing purchases this year so far.

You’ve already seen me wear all three of these Monki dresses. I purchased the floral wrap dress and the red checkered dress on sale. All of these dresses are great for a small to medium baby bump:)

You’ve also seen me wear this lilac dress a couple of times. It’s from my local supermarket brand VRS, and it is also a great dress to wear with a growing bump.

These last two clothing pieces are from Zara. I just fell in love with the Winnie The Pooh sweater vest; I just love the colours and the fun details. And you know I love dinosaurs, so I thought the stripy T-shirt was cute.

Let’s move on to make-up. First off, I purchased four products from Essence and one from e.l.f. Cosmetics from Cocopanda. I got the Essence Welcome to Miami eyeshadow palette, the Essence Hello Good Stuff Happy Bliss face spray, the Essence Juicy Bomb shiny lipglosses in 09 Fresh Banana and 10 Sweet Mint, and the e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty blush in Turks and Caicos.

Here’s a closer look at the palette and the blush. I love the e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty blushes, and Turks and Caicos is such a pretty shade. However, I was not super impressed by the Essence Welcome to Miami eyeshadow palette. The look I created with it was pretty enough, but it’s not the easiest palette to work with, so I’ve actually already decluttered it from my collection.

Here are three other random make-up items that I picked up in March. I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Liner in Sandstone, and I love it. The shade is beautiful, and the formula is great. I also picked up the e.l.f. Cosmetics Flawless Brightening concealer in Fair 10 C, which has been a go-to undereye concealer of mine for the past couple of months. And then I got the NYX Thick It. Stick It! brow mascara in Taupe. Lots of people love this product, but I’m not sure about it. I think it might be too pigmented for my liking, but maybe I just have to play around with it a bit more.

And last, but most certainly not least, I purchased the Natasha Denona Pastel palette back in March. I’ve posted many looks with this palette, and I’ve featured it in a previous 5 favourites post, so it’s easy to tell that I love this palette. It’s one of my favourite and most used Natasha Denona palettes.

5 favourites – July

Today is the last day of July, which is also the last day of my summer holiday. I had such a nice, relaxing and long summer holiday this year, which was perfect considered my current state:) And I only have to work for a month before my maternity leave begins. This month I have a mixed bag of favourites, so let’s talk about them.

Maternity denim shorts: At some point I’ll be posting a H&M MAMA haul, but I had to feature these denim shorts in this 5 favourites post. These are really comfy, and they’re the perfect length. I’ve worn these a lot on hot summer days.

Violet classic Crocs: I never thought that I would actually purchase and wear a pair of classic Crocs, but I love the sandal version, and now that I’m pregnant, they’re just so easy to slip in to when taking down the garbage or when going grocery shipping. And I love that you can customise them with all different kinds of Jibbitz. This pair is decked out with all different kinds of fun and colourful ones of course, and I think it looks so cute!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara: This is not a new product in the beauty world, and I remember people talking about it years ago, but I hadn’t tried it until early this month, and I really like it. It’s not the most volumising mascara, but it doesn’t transfer or smudge, which is such a big plus for me. I also think it looks really nice on the lashes.

Thor: Love and Thunder (film): My boyfriend and I are big MCU fans, so we went to watch the newest Thor film last week, and we both really enjoyed it. I think Christian Bale’s Gorr is one of the creepiest Marvel villains so far.

Floor fan: This last favourite might be a bit strange, but this floor fan has been a life saver on the hot summer days, we’ve had in Denmark in July. I’m not a huge fan of super warm weather anyways, but now that I’ve tried being pregnant in super warm weather, a floor fan is a necessity!

Can’t not

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I can’t not wear a blue eye look with that blue floral matching set. I think it’s impossible.
