My Garnier BB Cream for Summer!

 photo garnierbbcream_zpsf6359268.jpg

Hi everyone!

As summer is upon us I have been changing a few things in my everyday makeup routine. When the weather is nice outside I don’t always feel like wearing a thick layer of foundation, so I have been using BB Cream instead.

I’m actually not a huge fan of BB creams and I don’t feel like they have good enough coverage, which is why I never got around using my entire bottle of Garnier BB cream from last year.

It might not be the best thing in the world to use an old BB cream, but we all have makeup we should throw out (at least I think we do)?

Getting the right coverage!

My skin is so bad right now that I actually went to the doctor to see if he could help. Even though my skin is really bad I have found a way to use my BB cream and still be satisfied with the coverage.

I start out with using the BB cream all over my face to even out my skin tone and then I move on to my Mac Select Cover Up concealer which covers all the imperfection and I finish off with my Rimmel Stay Mat...

April Favorites 2014!

Hi everyone!

April is almost over and May is upon us! I’m so excited for summer approaching longer days and sunshine to come.

I don’t usually do monthly favorites because most of the time I stick to the same products. I haven’t done a favorite since January and I thought now was the time to do one again since I’m using some new products.

Base products

I started April with a little trip to Malaga where I got a sunburn, so ever since then I have been using a lot of my Marc Jacobs Dot body lotion, which smells so nice!

I have also been loving my Victoria Secret Body Spray a lot recently, maybe it’s because spring is upon us and I feel like doing a little more in the morning, but this product is definitely a favorite.

My Orofluido Beauty Elixir is almost empty and I have been using it after ever shower for my hair since I got it in December, it’s just amazing and I love the smell of it!

I also love my Elizabeth Arden deodorant, I just love the fresh smell and I love how it’s l...

My Daily Makeup!

Hi beautiful people!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are all having fun, enjoying some time off and are eating chocolate.

I always like to see what makeup people are wearing on a daily basis, some people like a full face of makeup and other just a bit of mascara and concealer. I personally have a full face of makeup for two reasons; one being bad skin that I can cover up and another that I love to experiment with makeup and enjoy the time in front of the mirror in the morning.

My Daily Makeup

I usually start with my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, then I go over to my Mac Select Cover Up concealer and set everything with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I then like using Bourjois Bronzing Powder for either contouring or bronzer, it depends on what I feel like doing that day.

For eyes I switch between my Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo or my Mac Showstopper Palette depending on time. I then like using Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara and their Falsies mascara to finish the eyes.

Mac Haul!

Hi everyone!

I was so excited this weekend when my local Mac counter had 25% discount on all Mac products. I saw this as my opportunity to expand my Mac collection and try some new products. I don’t own much Mac and I still haven’t tried any of their lipsticks since I feel like my drugstore lipsticks are great and I don’t need any new colors.

Mac Concealers

 photo macselectcover-up_zps5f234da8.jpg

I had been looking at some of the Mac concealers. I already have Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer which I really like, but I think it’s a bit unhygienic that you either have to put your finger or brush down the concealer and then use it on a blemish whereafter you take some more concealer just to rub all the bacterias around in there, with your finger or brush again.

Mac Select Cover Up

I have been struggling with really bad breakouts around my mouth for a couple of months now and thought about trying a concealer where you press the product out of the tube, which will minimize the bacterias...

Zoeva Brushes Review!

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited to share my Zoeva Brushes Review with all of you today! First of all I’m pretty sure I’m addicted to makeup brushes, but that’s because I don’t care about expensive makeup as long as you got good brushes to work with!

 photo zoevabrushes_zps4bc6428d.jpg

I have been wanting to try these brushes for so long, but I thought the delivery was a bit expensive €7,5 so when my friend and I both wanted to try them we decided to order together and share the delivery cost. We looked at a lot of pages to find the best prices and buying directly from Zoeva was just the most inexpensive solution!

I got six brushes, where most of them are made from a combination of natural and synthetic hair. I have almost all the Real Techniques brushes, which are all synthetic and I really wanted some brushes with natural hair because they pick up pigment in another way.

Cleansing Butter vs Cleansing Oil

Hi everyone!

In December I got The Body Shop Cleansing Butter and Mac Cleanse Off Oil to remove my makeup. I really like both of these products to remove waterproof makeup and especially mascara, which is really easy you can just use your hands to rub it all off.

These two products are very similar, they are both cleansers that remove your makeup completely and they are both a bit oily. That’s why I decided I wanted to do a little review on them both to see which one is better.

The Body Shop Cleansing Butter

body shop cleansing butter

The Body Shop Cleansing Butter is really creamy and you just rub it all over your skin to get your makeup off. It works really well and it feels nice on the skin, which leaves the skin feeling soft. It says on the product that it’s gently on the eyes even for those with contact lenses. I do feel that it hurts my eyes sometimes and it doesn’t always get all the eye makeup off...

January Favorites 2014

January is over, can’t believe the first month of 2014 is already gone! I hope everyone has been enjoying the year so far and people are keeping up with their New Year Resolutions. I didn’t really make any this year because I never keep them, I feel like changes need to come from the inside and not because of new the new year.

It’s time for my first favorite post of the year, which is January favorites. Some of my favorites are new products I have found and others are old that I still really like.

Elizabeth Arden

I have been trying out different skincare systems including Lush, Clinique, La Roche Posay and now it’s time for this one.
