Look of the day; black n white n a pop of color

Today I work at the Makeupstudio Education. I have black pants (that you cant see on this picture…) together with our tshirt and a black n white blazer.  I love the black and white look. Especially together with a pop of color on the lips! Hot pink lipstick is a favourite of mine when I dress in black and white. I matched it with a low sleek ponytail. I rarely have my hair parted in the middle, like I do today, cuz I think it looks a bit harsh…  Do you agree? Will I scare my students today you think? 😉

Hope you all will have a fabulous evening! I know I will!!!

The lipstick

I love lipstick! I have loads. There is really no number that is too many! 😉 The one I am wearing today is called Pure red from Lumene Natural Code. These lipsticks are my new favourite. So smooth and moisturising yet pigmented! Hooray! They are great for a every day use since they colorful but sheer. What do you think? Would you wear this?

The favourite lipglosses?!

Everybody loves lipglosses right? I´ve always been a lipstick girl and am really happy that lipstick is back on the scene again, however nothing beats the lightness and easyness of a good lipgloss right? I thought I´d share some of my favourites at the moment with you guys. Feel free to respond with your favourites, I´d love to hear what you guys use and love too!

My absolute favourite right now is this pink lipgloss from Goldbear (nr 6). It is soooo priceworthy and really has a high gloss without shimmer to it, a look that I love.

Another favourite is the richly shimmery lipgloss from MAC´s Marilyn Monroe Collection fall 2012. It´s opposite of the Goldbear with it´s shimmer and is perfect for evening wear, alone or ontop of a gorgeous lipstick/pen.

Clarin´s Colour quench lip balms has always been a favourite for as long as I remember. It´s something about how it feels on the lips. So smooth and just nice. 🙂 They come in lovely colours too, with Sweet Papaya being my alltime favourite.

I always keep a coupple of H&M glosses arround too, both clear (those are perfect over lipsticks, alone or to be blended with your favourite eyeshadow) and tinted ones. I like the easy access of H&M products and their glosses actually have rather high quality for it´s price.

Valentines day with Mandy!!!

First of all, Happy Valentines Day everybody! ❤

I can end one of my obsessions today. Cuz today I'm spending Valentines Day with Mandy! I found her the day before yesterday and so my search is finally over. I found my perfect pink lipstick! Remember my post about it? No? Check it out HERE. I matched her up with a couple of cute butterflies on my nails. Mandy is from Makeupstore and a lively and lovely colour. I also got a nice surprise when I got to work today, newly arrived jewellery from Aarikka! So cute and fun! Wearing ring and earring on the pictures.
