Tribe and triggered

DSC_8676DSC_8680

Here’s the make-up I wore Friday September 13. I used the Tribe palette by Juvia’s Place for the first time, and I really like how my eye look turned out. It’s also nice to get back into dark lip colours.

First impressions: Essence Camouflage+ matte concealer

DSC_7070

My last two first impressions posts were also on concealers, but I promise that this is the last concealer one for a little while.

First impressions

This Essence concealer is super affordable, and it has a nice small pointed applicator. The coverage was not as good as I hoped it would be, but it’s not horrible. As you can see, it looks okay under the eyes, but when I tried to cover up a spot, it removed the foundation in that area. In general, it was difficult to blend in with my foundation, which a good concealer shouldn’t be. It also has a really strong scent that lingers, which I really don’t like. Overall, I’m not a fan of this concealer; I have so many other concealers that I love, so I probably won’t use this one much if at all.

Bronze eyes and red lips

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. You can never go wrong with a bronze eye look and a red lip.

5 favourites – September

The first month of autumn is now over, which means that we’re one month closer to December:) Work is super busy these days, but the autumn break is just around the corner, and I can’t wait! But first, here are some of my favourite things from the past month.

Rød quilted jakke m. blomstermønster og fløjlskrave - Monki

Red quilted jacket: In my May favourites, I featured the navy version of this jacket, and this red one has definitely become a favourite as well. I just love the quilted fabric, the shape of the jacket, and the corduroy details.

Beige baggy bukser m. lynlåse - second hand

Beige baggy trousers: I bought these trousers second hand about a year ago, and I’ve definitely worn them throughout the year, but this month I seem to have worn them quite a bit. They’re a part of one of my favourite outfits I’ve worn this year (which I’ll post soon), so I think it was about time that I’d feature them in a favourites post.

Hårbøjler

Headbands: I’m a huge fan of hair accessories, and my favourite kind this past month has been the headband. This is just a selection of the ones I’ve worn, and I have a feeling that I’ll continue to wear them for a while.

Wet n Wild Photofocus pressed powder (shade: Warm Light): I often go for a translucent powder, but I’ve really enjoyed using this coloured powder from Wet n Wild. It’s great for days where I’ve have lots of break-outs, because it provides more coverage than a translucent powder (obviously), but it’s not heavy or cakey on the skin.

Elton John plade

The Very Best of Elton John (record): I found some great records at a fleamarket this summer, among those this Elton John one. It contains two double sided records, and they’re filled with classic Elton John songs. It’s been my go-to record this past month.

Third BeautyBay sale haul of 2019

DSC_8571

BeautyBay has had some great sales this year so far! This time I bought four Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour liquid lipsticks, two eyeshadow palettes, and a highlighter, the highlighter being the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow powder in the shade Afterglow. This is one of my favourite highlighters, but the one I had broke, so I had to get a new one.

The four Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks that I purchased in the latest BeautyBay sale are (from top to bottom) Delicious (Star Family collection), Mannequin (main collection), Bronze Blood (Summer 2019 collection), and Fudge Pop (Summer 2018 collection). These are all on the more neutral side of things, but I’m really excited to wear all of these.

I love the Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeshadow palettes, and even though I have the original Comfort Zone palette, which I love, I still wanted to add the newer version to my collection as well. This one has two additional matte shades that the original palette doesn’t have, so this one is more travel friendly.

Last, but most certainly not least, I’ve finally added the Tribe palette by Juvia’s Place to my eyeshadow collection. I’ve been drooling over this palette since it launched, and I’m so excited to play with this palette. I think the colour story is absolutely stunning.

Khaki summer
