What´s On My Face: February 2016

The February Face 1
The February Face 2
Another month is over which means it´s time again to show you all what I´ve been wearing and loving throughout February.
February has been a month of a lot of switching around, that´s why there are 2 foundation, 2 concealers and 2 mascaras. The weather has also been changing between freezing cold winter and nicely warm spring so that could be a reason for my switching between different kinds of products.
Looking back now, I find the focus of this month was a bronzed face and long lashes.
No eyemakeup and no lipstick this time.


Why I Decided To Go On a Spending Ban

Spending Ban Flat Lay
I never thought I would officially admit that, but I´m spending too much money on too much makeup. I find myself strolling through Instagram, Twitter, online shops and my local drugstore very often and also very often I buy things that I already have at home or something that´s really similar to something I already have. It´s the worst with foundations and makeup brushes, of course there are several different finishes in foundations and several different makeup brushes that can be used for many different things, but as I´m still a student who spends most of the day at school and at home I really have way too much stuff that I´ll probably barely use fully up.


My 4 All Time Favourite Mascaras

4 All Time Favourite Mascaras
Bobbi Brown, Maybelline, Benefit Mascaras
Mascara has to be one of my favourite makeup items. Simply because it can completely change the way your makeup looks! Remember how scary it looks when you´re done filling in your brows and it looks like you took a sharpie and drew on two thick lines? Mascara evens that out and moves the attention from your brows to your eyes, that look a lot bigger and even better ,if I´m allowed to say so, with the right mascara.
We all know how many different mascaras there are on the market, and they all have different purposes, voluminous lashes, longer lashes, spider lashes, etc. 
I tested a good amount of different ones and have now picked my 4 all time favourites that I would immediatly pick up again.


Black Skincare Products To Improve Skin & Teeth

Origin Clear Improvement and EcoDental Toothpaste

More and more brands bring out product that contain charcoal. The black colour of those products might scare some off from trying them but trust me, they´re basically one of the best things to really do something for your skin and teeth as the charcoal is strong enough to really pull out any leftover dirt or oils from your skin and whiten your teeth in a short amount of time!


Spending Valentines Day As A Single

Spending Valentines Day As A Single
If you haven´t noticed already by all the love messages and pictures of happy couples spending the day together all over social medias, it´s Valentines Day! Definitely not a date that´s worth to remember when you´re a single lady like me. Today and especially tonight will all be themed as "loving yourself". There are several things to do to make this day and night about yourself.


A Pinky Glowy Valentines Day

It´s Valentines Day on Sunday and the first thing that comes up in my mind is red and pink hearts and all in one just a lot of love. You could say love is in the air... but no definitely not for everyone, haha. Now when you´re like me and don´t have a special someone to spend the day with you can still have a fun time going out with your girls and also put a lot of effort into your valentines themed look.
I´m a typical girl that can´t have enough pinky/rose tones, shimmer and glow in her makeup so I got everything together to create loads of different look that include these aspects more or less!

I find glowy skin is a must for this time, having dull tired skin could ruin the whole look. So I like to reach for a full coverage foundation, over my loved The Body Shop Instablur Primer, the MAC Studio Fix in NC15, blended it with my Real Techniques Buffin Brush it gives a natural look yet every blemish and redness is covered. To cover my dark under-eye area and to complete my base I blend in the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15 with the same brush as my foundation.
Before I get my glow on I like to fix my T-Zone and make it matte as I´m not the biggest fan of shine everywhere, not only on my cheekbones, using the NYX Matte Finish Spray. A pink glowy highlighter practically screams to be used on Valentines Day and for that I like to reach for my newest love the Revlon Highlighter Palette in Rose Glow, to apply that I take a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush and swipe it across every shade and you literally get the most beautiful pinky glow you could imagine!

Before I get my eyeshadow on I fill in my eyebrows using this duo.
For eyes I have two options for you, one that is more pinky toned and one more red-y berry coloured. The pink option consists of the Astor Eyeshadow Stick in Chic Nude as a base and blended with stiffer blending brush to create a kinda smokey look. To add that before said shimmer to this look I take the same brush and a lot of MAC´s All That Glitter Eyeshadow and firstly tap in on my lid and then also into my crease.
The more red-y berry option is really quick and that would be to use the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate and tap that in with your finger and slightly blend it out to more of a cat-eye look. After that you could either leave it like that or apply some liquid eyeliner as a tiny cat flick my favourite for that has to be the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner.
Currently I´m all about long voluminous black lashes. For the voluminous part I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and work it mainly into the roots of my lashes, and then for extra length and even more volume I recently started using the Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. It has a really wet consistency so you would have to be careful with it, apart from when you´re a fan of spider lashes, haha :). The way to get the most of this mascara is to just blink through it, your lashes will get a lot longer!

I do love a good red lip but it demands a lot of retouching throughout the day/night so this year I will go for a classic pinky-nude shade. I´m a huge fan of matte liquid lipsticks at the moment, so far I have only tried the Soft Matte Lip Creams from NYX and I really love them, a velvety texture that dries matte and lasts for a really long time. In the picture above I´ve got the shade Tokyo, a lovely light nude tone :)
Matte is definitely not something for everyone and for that I have two options both are nude and shiny. Two of my favourite lipsticks from MAC are, Cremecup with a Cremesheen finish and Angel with Satin Finish. If I would have to describe these two shades I would say they are those typicall "my lips but better" shades. They just add that hint of colour to your lips and stay on for quite a long time before disappearing evenly, so no worries about having to check very often.

Before I´m out the door I spritz the Chloé Love Story Perfume on and I´m good to go :)

What are your plans for Valentines Day?
What are some Valentines Day Makeup Essentials that you will definitely wear?



Brow Game Changer Duo

Brows, brows, brows, that´s all everyone is obsessed with at the moment, me included. Having defined brows can really change the look of your whole makeup and even give your face a more structured look, especially round faces like I have.
Obsessing over women with perfect brows over on Instagram or Tumblr is probably the easiest part of the whole thing, but finding products that actually work for you and are easy to apply is definitely a challenge.


Those One-Swipe Eyeshadows

Eyeshadows can add that little touch to complete your whole makeup. Now the only problem is that probably most of us don´t have enough time or don´t want to actually get out three different eyeshadows and create a perfectly blended eyemakeup with like a dark crease, a light base and all that blended out with a medium dark shade, no definitely not! Luckily there are severals that don´t need more than one sweep and are absolutely suitable for everyday.
