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 makeup for today: a perfect eyeliner

I´ve had an urge for a perfect eyeliner for the past days. You know a deep black, bold statement liner. So today I went for it. I matched it up with soft pinks and peaches to keep it neutral enough to wear for work (danceclasses).

Base: BB cream nr 2 from Leezi, loose powder also from Leezi, bronze powder H&M

Blush: a peach coloured blush from an unknown asian brand

Eyes: the pink shadow from Nouba quattro nr 628 over the entire eyelid, then I swept the peach blush over the crease and outer corner of eye. Eyeliner from Vsoya and mascara from L´Oreal. I used browpen nr 3 from Populart on my brows.

Lips: Lipgloss Innocent from H&M

Whilst we´re at eyeliners, have any of you tried on the sticker eyeliners that are out there now? I am übersceptic… I think I stick to the liquid ones!

How on earth did I manage before???

I have absolutely no idea how I got by before I found this amazing lipbalm!!! It takes care of my really dry lips but also my extremely dry cuticles and other dry spots that allergic people like myself tend to get… You can get it at the pharmacies in Sweden but I don´t know if you have it in othor countries. Anyone know of this? Anyways, if you can get a hold of this one I can really recommend it, especially if you are sensitive and/or allergic!
