Green and yellow eyes

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette for the first time, and I love how this green and yellow eye look turned out. I mean, just look at that pigmentation!

Affordable beauty haul: Essence, L.A. Girl & Revolution

Over the past couple of months, I’ve collected some affordable make-up products from Essence, L.A. Girl, and Revolution.

Essence often come out with limited edition collections, and I thought this Berry on collection looked really pretty. I purchased the two matte liquid lipsticks; they’re in the shades 01 Berry Nice and 02 Berry Beautiful. I also purchased the highlighter which is called 01 Berry on My Mind!, and it’s a pretty pink shade.

I’ve also bought a bunch of products from L.A. Girl and a single product from Revolution. From L.A. Girl I’ve purchased three coloured mascaras; turquoise, bright blue, and purple. The only products from this haul that I’ve tried so far are the Shockwave Neon liners; I’ve worn the yellow one (Screamin’) and the green one (Gotcha), but there’s also a bright teal one (Fresh) and a purple one (Vivid). So far I’m quite impressed by these liners. The last product I’ve got from L.A. Girl is the PRO.Color Foundation Mixing Pigment in White; I want to try to lighten certain foundations. The very last product in this haul is the Revolution Vivid Baked highlighter in Matte Lights. As the name suggests it’s a matte highlighter, which is something I haven’t really tried before, so I’m excited to see what it looks like on the skin.

Perfect matte red

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The black and white outfit needed a pop of colour, so I decided to wear a red make-up look. I think I might have found the perfect matte red eyeshadow in Cherry Soda from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar palette.

5 favourites – July

July has come to an end which means that my summer holiday is now over. I spent the last three weeks relaxing with my family, which is why I haven’t blogged much this past month, but now I’m back home, I start working again tomorrow, and I’ll also be blogging regularly again. I love summer holidays, but I’m also the type of person who’s excited to get back to work. But before that happens, here’s my July favourites.

Sølvring af manchetknap

Cufflink ring: I went to several flea markets and second hand stores this summer and hauls will be coming up. One of my favourite flea market finds is this silver ring made of a cufflink. The woman who sold it to me made it herself, and there’s only two of them in world, since cufflinks come in sets of two:)

Hjemmelavede perlesmykker

Homemade jewellery: My sisters and I went crazy with jewellery making this summer, and these are the bracelets and ankle bracelets I made. I’ve worn different combinations of these almost everyday these past three weeks, and I’ll probably continue to do so for the rest of the summer.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette: I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about an eyeshadow palette than I was for this one. 2019 has been the year of colourful eyeshadows for me, and this palette is absolutely stunning. It was one of the palettes I brought with me on summer holiday, and even though I’ve used it a lot, I still haven’t tried out half of the shades. I can’t wait to play even more with this palette.

Ofra Cosmetics x Nikkietutorials Glazed Donut highlighter: This highlighter is just gorgeous! The colour is perfect and it looks stunning on the skin. Definitely my most used highlighter in July.

Vintage sko

Vintage Shoes – Caroline Cox: I started reading this book years ago, and now I finally had time to finish it. I’ve been obsessed with shoes since my early teenage years, and this book tells you all you need to know about shoes from the 20. century. It was such an inspiring read.

Raspberry pink

Jeffree Star Jawbreaker collection (summer 2019)

I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a Jeffree Star collection than I was for this year’s summer collection.

My jaw literally dropped when I first saw the Jawbreaker palette. Have you ever seen anything this beautiful! I’ve only played with this palette once so far, but I’m already obsessed.

DSC_8074DSC_8076

I’ve also purchased the Mini Breaker palette. I love the concept of mini palettes, and the colours in this one are stunning.

I’ve never tried the Supreme Frost highlighters before, but when I saw the shade Diamond Wet swatched, I knew I had to give it a try.

Last, but most certainly not least, I purchased four of the limited edition Velour liquid lipsticks. The shades are (from top to bottom) Fully Nude, Strawberry Crush, Yes Ma’am, and Purple Urkle. The colours are brighter in real life and oh so pretty.
