Let‘s Talk About Accessoires.

I have been trying to edit my wardrobe to absolute perfection over the past year. Which means a lot of getting rid of (selling or donating obviously…) and buying new clothing items. And I think I am quite happy with where I am at right now. If you are interested I might do another post about how I tackled this task in the next month. 

However, while thinking about the main items in my closet I lost sight of another category that is just as important, at least if you ask me. Accessoires.

I used to LOVE looking for new accessories to add to my collection. What draws me to them is how easily you can transform a whole look by simply adding a belt, sunglasses, scarf or a hat. And don‘t get me started on jewellery. Probably my biggest weakness of all. 

So I thought I go ahead and share with you some of my current accessories findings, and maybe that will keep me from actually buying everything. 

Btw, if you are looking to invest in some new jewellery, heyamore is my go to place for high quality Italian gold treasures. 

A dream!

What are your go-to accessoires that you can‘t live without?

My Holiday Makeup Look.

Festive Makeup Look YSL, By Terry, Dior, Bobbi Brown, NYX

It‘s the time of the year again.. events, parties and social gatherings everywhere. I honestly quite enjoy the busy festive season, and I do love adding some extra glitter and glamour to my outfits in december. However, when it comes to my makeup, I like to stay away from glitter. But at the same time I do like to make it look a bit more special than my normal everyday look. 

So what am I going to be wearing this festive season? I think a classic red lip, a winged liner and false lashes are the way to go for me. Festive, classic and not ‚too much‘. Today I am sharing with you my fave products for this look.

The Base

For a glowy and flawless look I love to combine my By Terry Celullarose Brightening CC Serum with my Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation. These two are a dream-team. They give me a perfected look, with a light-weight feel. However, the coverage is definitely on the lighter side, so if you like to go for full coverage, I would suggest the standard Dior Forever Foundation

The Eyes

Again, I love a subtle look here. However, the By Terry Ombré Blackstar Eyeshadowsticks give my eyelids a slight shimmer and I am here for it! They are also so easy to use - I am obsessed. For my liner I love the NYX Epic Wear Liquid Liner. My lashes of choice are the Ardell Demi Wispies - a classic for a reason!

The Lips

I must admit I used to be quite scared of red lipstick, especially if the event I am going to involves any kind of drinking or eating (and I mean that’s what christmas is all about, right?). But I find if you find the right shade of red for you and then just see which formula works best for your requirements, red is a gorgeous choice! I find more blue-toned reds suit my complexion the most, and I love a matte liquid lip - the staying power is simply the best. The Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Lipsticks are my fave. I have almost every shade and I just adore them. 

Have you planned your festive makeup look yet?

Why Blush Is My Fave Makeup Product.

*This post contains PR Samples

Pink Blush Products Dior Mac Mocha Nudestix Nudies Bloom Cherry Blossom

I have always said that if I can only use one makeup product it‘s probably concealer. However, I think I recently changed my mind. It all started with a Dior Blush that I discovered a few months back. Since then I have been wearing pink blushes every single day. Even if I don‘t wear any other makeup at all. 

I find that adding a bit of a flush of colour to your cheeks makes you look so much more awake and youthful than any concealer can do. Granted, looking fresh and bright versus looking like a clown really is down to applying the right amount, on the right spot and mot importantly in the right shade. 

I love peachy blushes on other so much, but on me they never look right. After trial and error I am pretty confident to say, that a pink shade is really the best for me and suits my cool undertones the best.

My fave cream blushes are Nudestix Nudies Bloom in Cherry Blossom Babe and Perricone No Makeup Blush. For Powders I adore my Dior Blush in shade Rosy Glow, however this seems to be sold out everywhere right now. Another one of my faves is Mac Powder Blush in Mocha.
