Everyday 60′s

I always do big cat wings whenever I wear liner, it feels refreshing to wear something else now and then! Today that ended up being a wing-less eyeliner that just tapers off at the end of the eye. I messily dotted some brown eye pencil on the lower lashline before applying mascara aswell, it gives some extra choppiness to the lashes without turning into cartoony drawn on Twiggy spikes. Plus the pale lid with a greyish crease and pale lips.. Can you sense my 60′s vibe?

Lumene Nude Perfection Glow Foundation

Dags att kika närmre på en av mina vardagsräddare! Nude Perfection Glow Foundation från Lumene är en lystergivande serumlik foundation som mjukgör och jämnar ut huden en aning. Med betoning på “en aning”, denna är mer som en färgad dagkräm eller BB cream då den inte täcker mycket alls. Jag gillar att applicera den med händerna och sedan dutta på lite concealer där det behövs, det är toppen för dagar då jag vill ha något lätt som inte kladdar. Min vintertorra hud absorberar denna foundation snabbt och jag känner inget behov av att pudra efter. Den har SPF 15 också, inte mycket att skryta med men alltid bra liten extragrej att putta i. Finns att köpa på KICKS, Åhléns och liknande för dryga 169 kr. (Edit: KICKS har 20% rabatt på Lumenes foundations just nu!)

Time to take a look at my daily saviour! Nude Perfection Glow Foundation from Lumene is a luminous serum-like foundation that moisturizes and evens the skin out a bit. With emphasis on “a bit”, this one is more like a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream as it doesn’t cover much at all. I like smoothing it on with my hands and dabbing some concealer on where ever I need that little extra, it’s perfect for days when I want something lightweight that doesn’t feel sticky on the skin. My winter dry skin absorbs this quickly and doesn’t even need any setting powder! It also has SPF 15, not a lot but it’s always a good little extra.

Lumene Nude Perfection Glow Foundation comes in a squeeze tube. I use the shade 1 Classic Beige most often as it gives a little warmth, but I also like the shade 0 Light Ivory.

Midnight Blue

This eye look is done with a bunch of the KIKO Cosmetics products I showed you yesterday! I primed the eye with Moon Shadow Water Infused Eyeshadow in Glistening Turquoise (it’s SO SPARKLY ehmagerd! But more blue than turquoise) and on top I pushed the Water Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue. They’re practically the same colour and just help amplifying each other. On the outer corners I dabbed some Water Eyeshadow in Graphite just to deepen the look a bit.

Blue is one of my absolute favourite eyeshadow colours, the colour itself is so calming and a smokey blue eye really brightens sallow skin. I think the magic lies in not overworking the look, if you just keep the rest of the face simple without contrasting lips/cheeks (I stay far away from pinks when I do blue, much rather a soft bronze/apricot) it won’t look like a 80′s relic. Unless that’s the look you dig of course. Let’s bring the blues back, ok?!
