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.
These are just a few of all lipgloss that´s in my life/makeupbag…lol I might share others at another time. For now theese are my toplist! 🙂 So what´s your lipgloss toplist?
Howdy peepz! Today the sun was up and it wasn´t as cold as it has been here lately. Hooray! (Do note that it´s still cold enough for me to wear a thick cardigan….) 🙂 That inspired my makeup today. Also the fact that I was able to wear makeup today made me happy since I have had an allergic reaction in my eye for the past week and been forced to go out without my makeup on. 😉
Base: I used a mineral powder from .FÄRG in the colour Nordic Winter Fresh. I looooove .FÄRG´s mineral powders. They are so light that you don´t feel like you´re wearing makeup at all and yet they give you a light cover making your skin look like porcelain with a slight shimmer in it. Perfect for light and fresh makeup looks! I use Nordic Winter Fresh when I am at my palest (early springtime) and Nordic Summer golden when I get a bit of a tan. The times in between I like to mix the two to match my skintone perfectly. After the foundation I applied a bronze powder from H&M , that also has a light shimmer in it, over the face edges, chin, cheeks, forehead and nosebone, all places where the sun would naturally tan your face first.
Blush: I started with applying a bit more of the bronze powder underneath the cheekbone (where your cheeks are naturally the thinnest) then I applied a blush from FACE in colour Vision over the bronze powder. Today I also added a highlight on my cheekbones to really get a sunkissed look. I used the shimmer shades from .FÄRG in colour Bronce.
Eyes: The eyes I wanted to keep simple yet stunning and when that´s my aim I always turn to bronzes and golds. This time I used the shimmer from .FÄRG that I also used on the cheekbones, Bronce. I used THIS brush to apply it since normal brushes isn´t all too good for loose shadows. For best result just pat the loose shadow firmly onto the lid. I used a blender brush for the edges and then added a highlight, Muffin from Maleupstore, under the brow and in the inner corner of my eye with the same blender brush. My favourite is nr 217 from MAC. To finnish of the eyemakeup I applied one coat of Volume Million Lashes Excess from L´Oreal. The brows are filled in with Popularts browpen nr 2. Don´t forget to fill in your brows, they are the frame to the artwork of your eye!
Lips: I lined my lips with pen nr 11 from .FÄRG. Then I covered them with same pen but just lightly before adding lipgloss nr 6 from Goldbear.
Voilá! A quick and easy sunkissed look for sunny days!
