Blue, green, pink

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love how colourful this make-up look is. The blue and green look great together on the eyes, and the shimmery, glossy pink lip adds another fun pop of colour to the look.

Feelunique haul: Mainly Natasha Denona

In my 5 favourites post from April, one of my favourites was Natasha Denona as a brand, and I mentioned that I would include many ND products in future hauls. You’ve already seen some of them, but this haul is all Natasha Denona products apart from one product. Let’s get in to it.

Shortly after I started getting in to Natasha Denona products (and especially palettes), she announced the Circo Loco palette, and as you can see, it’s right up my alley. It’s such a fun and colourful palette, and I just had to have it. I did get a discount on it, which was nice, because this is one of her bigger and more expensive palettes. But just look at it. It’s so beautiful!

The Sunrise palette was actually the first medium sized palette I purchased from Natasha Denona, even though I’ve already hauled the Love palette. It’s such a stunning warm-toned palette, and I’ve loved the looks I’ve created with it so far. I got it on sale btw.

At the same time as I purchased the Sunrise palette, I also purchased these three mini palettes; the Mini Nude, the Mini Love, and the Mini Tropic. I got the Mini Nude and the Mini Tropic on sale.

The Mini Nude palette is, as the name suggests, a nude palette. What I love about these mini palettes is that you can create a beautiful and cohesive look using just those five colours + they’re super travel friendly as well.

The Mini Love is just the most stunning little purple/pink palette. None of the shades are repeats from the Love palette, but they obviously go with the colour scheme of the Love palette, which is great.

The Mini Tropic palette is a mini version of the limited edition Tropic palette. I’m pretty sure this mini version is limited edition too, but you can still get it on Feelunique. The mini version includes the same five shades that make out the bottom row in the Tropic palette, and they’re definitely the five most exciting shades in the Tropic palette if you ask me, so I’m glad that I got the mini version.

The last ND in this haul are these three single eyeshadows that I got as a free gift with purchase. The red shade is Phlox from the Sunrise palette, the matte brown shade is Zand from the Camel palette, and the neutral metallic shade is Moonstone from the Eyeshadow Palette 5 #4.

The last product that I wanted to include in this haul, because I bought it together with the rest of these products (apart from the Circo Loco palette) is the e.l.f. Glow Gleam Beam highlighter palette in Light. It has six highligher shades in three different formulas/finishes. I’ve used many of the shades, and they’re very pretty.

Classic look

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s not that often that I wear a simple, neutral eye look like this one, but when I do I almost always pair it with a red lip. It’s just such a classic look.

(Base: primer –  e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer, foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser concealer (shade: 00 Ivory), powders – Essence Brighten Up!

Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: Essence lipliner in 14 Femme Fatale + MAC Powder Kiss lipstick in Werk, Werk, Werk)

Red coat

Here’s what I wore Saturday March 6. I went to a furniture store to look for a new sofa that day, and I hadn’t been to any stores in so long due to the lock down, so I saw an opportunity to wear this beautiful red coat.

(Coat + jumper + jeans – H&M, bag – Kidzroom, boots – PULL&BEAR)

Mini retro

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wore the Natasha Denona Mini Retro palette for the first time, and I loved it. The quality is amazing, and the colours are so pretty. I’m also in love with the nude lipstick. It’s the Jeffree Star Velvet Trap lipstick in Naked Body, and it’s pretty much the perfect nude.

(Base: primer – NYX The Marshmellow Primer,  foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana + Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying powder in 021 Transparent. Face make-up: bronzer – Essence Hello, Good Stuff! matte & glow bronzer in 10 Cocoa-Cool, blusher – Essence The Blush in 60 Beaming, highlighter – MAC Flashing Ice Extra Dimension Skinfinish Trio: Light (shade: Out On The Tinseltown). Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Essence eyeshadow in 05 Granny Pants + Natasha Denona Mini Retro palette (shades: Vintage Taupe + 60’s + Industrial + Galaxia + Pixie) + MAC Nylon eyeshadow, mascara – L’Oréal Air Volume Mega mascara, eyeliner – Sephora Long lasting kohl pencil in 07 Infinite beige. Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: MAC Boldly Bare lip pencil + Jeffree Star Velvet Trap lipstick in Naked Body)

Is it a dress or…?

Here’s what I wore Friday March 5. I really wanted to wear this matching roll neck top and skirt together and with the short sleeve blazer on top, it almost looks like I’m wearing a dress.

(Short sleeve blazer – H&M, roll neck top + skirt – Monki, boots – Asos)

Small, random Cocopanda haul

I have a small, sort of random Cocopanda (Danish online beauty store) haul to share with you today. I purchased some back-up Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponges, an e.l.f. small stibble brush, and another shade of the e.l.f. 16HR Camo concealer (matte finish). I got the shade Light Sand, and it’s a much better match for me compared to the previous shades I’ve tried. The e.l.f. Baked Blush in the shade Rich Rose was a free gift.

I purchased one more product from e.l.f. namely the HD Powder in Soft Luminance. It’s quite glowy, but also quite pretty.

I also bought one of the popular NYX Shine Loud High Pigment Lip Shine lipsticks. I picked up the shade Shake Things Up, which is a beautiful dark purple, and this lipstick really doesn’t go anywhere. So if you’re looking for a super long-lasting and pigmented lipstick give the NYX Shine Loud High Pigment Lip Shine a go.

The two most exciting products in this haul are both from Ofra. I purchased two collab products; the Ofra x Samantha March River bronzer duo and the Ofra x Steph Toms Milk & Cookies highlighter. I really like both of these products. I like the split pan designs, and all four shades are beautiful.

5 favourites – May

The last month of spring is coming to an end and by tomorrow it’ll officially be summer (if you ask the calendar). We are finally getting some warmer weather in Denmark as well, so it’s great timing. Anyways, let’s just get to it. Let’s talk about some favourites from the month of May.

Denim lace up boots: I was not sure how I would feel about these denim lace up (with a zipper on the side) boots from Monki when I first purchased them, but I love them. Denim is a neutral to me, so these boots are perfect for when you feel that neither black, white, or brown shoes go with your outfit.

NYX The Marshmellow primer: I’m sure that I’m not the only one who’s been enjoying this sweet-smelling primer from NYX. It’s popular for a reason; it feels nice and smooth on the skin and it smells great too. It hasn’t only been a favourite of mine for the past month, but for several months now, so I thought it was time to feature it in a favourites post.

Essence Lash Princess false lash effect mascara: I’ve been discovering so many great mascaras lately, this Essence mascara being another one. I’d heard great things about this mascara for years, and I’m so glad that I finally decided to try it. I’ll be posting my first impressions on it at some point where I’ll get in to more details about it.

Essence #pinkandproud Strong soapy brow styler (01 Stronger Than Yesterday!): It’ll still be a while before I get around to posting the haul that includes this soapy brow styler, but I had to include it in this post, because I’ve been loving it. It’s the first soap brow product I’ve tried, and there are probably better ones out there, but I’m still so impressed by the brow look I can create with this, and you can’t beat the price tag!

Kingsman: The Secret Service (film): I’d heard the name of this film, but hadn’t really any idea of what it was really about other than being a spy film, but I was pleasantly surprised by the over the top comedy sequences, and the cast is incredible. I also watched the sequel, and I really liked that one too, but the first one is my favourite. If you like action and comedy together, give this film a go. You won’t regret it.

Favourite lilac eyeshadows

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’ve tried so many new eyeshadow palettes lately, and I’ve loved most of them, but when it comes to lilac eyeshadows I’m pretty sure that my favourite is still the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette, so I had to use that palette for this look.

(Base: primer – NYX The Marshmellow Primer, foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser concealer (shade: 00 Ivory), powders – Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana + Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying powder in 021 Transparent. Face make-up: bronzer – Milani Silky Matte Bronzing powder in Sun Light, blusher – Clinique Cheek Pop palette: Warm Up (shade: Nude Pop), highlighter – Essence Glow Like A Pro loose highlighter (04 Purple Scandal). Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Jeffree Star Blood Lust palette (shades: Your Majesty + Deviant + Vivid Mood + Take The Crown) + Jeffree Star Alien palette (shade: Abduction), mascara – L’Oréal Air Volume Mega mascara, eyeliner – NYX Epic Wear Liner Stick in Periwinkle Pop. Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Mannequin + Jeffree Star The Gloss in Sickening)
