January favourites

 

Hi guys!

I've got a lot of favourites for you this month, so let's get started!

Maybelline New York 24Karat Nudes eyeshadow palette

I got this palette for christmas and it is not really my common colour scheme but i have actually used this a lot. The highlighter colours are soo beautiful - especially for highlighting the inner corners! I also really like the coppery shade with the dark blue as a smokey eye, and the lilac and green is perfect for defining the lower lash line to add a different colour to the eyeshadow look.

Mac prep+prime transparent finishing powder pressed

This powder is perfect for setting the under eye! I use a beautyblender to pic up the product and then pad it on, and it gives a really nice finish without making the concealer look cakey. Combined with the NYX setting spray the concealer will stay all day long!

Mac pro longwear concealer

This concealer is the best thing I've ever tried! It covers everything - and i really mean everything! Recently I have had a lot of spots and this concealer has saved me every day.

Bourjois radiance reveal concealer

Another concealer I have been loving this month is the Bourjois! It is perfect for highlighting the under eye and at the same time it hydrates the skin and blends in beautifully!

NYX soft matte lip creams

You guys know I have a soft spot for the soft matte lip creams, and this month I got two new shades, Copenhagen and London, and theese are by far my favorites! Copenhagen is really pretty with a winged liner and it compliments my fair skin very nice. London is a great shade with a coppery or bronzy eye, and I have been reaching for this a lot in this month!

Morphe eyeshadow brushes

I really, really like theese brushes. They have really made my eyeshadow routine a lot easier and with a better looking outcome as well. I have made a whole blog post about theese brushes (which you can read here) where i describe them in more details.

Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion

After hearing lots of youtubers talk about this I had to try it. After using this to prime my undereye my concealer doesn't crease as much as it used to, but I feel like the primer is a bit drying, which annoys me because it makes my concealer look cakey throughout the day. To prevent that I only use the primer in the area with the most fine lines and it works a lot better! I do feel like this primer is better for oily skin and doesn't work as good with dry skin.

Nivea Q10 plus eye cream

This eye cream is amazing! It says on the package it reduce wrinkles and minimize dark cirkles. I have used this for a month now and it has really helped on my dark circles and my undereye has never looked smoother! I have really dry skin under my eyes, but this cream has helped a lot!

IsaDora face sculptor palette - Natural bronze

I've wanted this palette for soo long and I finally bought it! I really love the matte bronze shades to bronze and contour my face. Up until now I've used a shimmer bronzer but I wanted to try a matte one, because it made more sense to me to use matte shades to contour and shimmers to highlight, and I'm really glad i did because my face looks much more natural bronzed now!

Tromborg facial mist rose water

Rose water has many, many purposes. I use it in my skin care routine as my second toner and in my makeup routine after I've done my makeup to set my face. In my skin care routine it hydrates my skin and makes my skin absorb the mousturizer a lot better. At the same time it reduces redness in the skin and I can already see a difference after I have used this for a month! In my makeup routine it gives my skin a healthy glow but it doesn't set the makeup so I use a setting spray after a few spritz of the rose water. I'm planning to write a blog post about the different uses of rose water so let me know in the comments if you are interested in that!

Origins GinZing energy-boosting mousturizer

At night time I usually use a mousturizer with SPF in it, and I have had a lot of breakouts recently. I found out that the breakouts was due to the SPF so I changed my night time mousturizer to this one. The skin absorbs the mousturizer very quickly which I like a lot, because I hate that greasy feeling on my skin. This also means that my skin is ready for a mask short time after I have mousturized. My skin also look more fresh and glowy instantly after the skin has absorbed the mousturizer.
