Smitten Polish “Girl Sprouts”

Girl Sprouts from the Smitten summer collection, a bright grass green holographic polish that makes me HAPPEH! It’s just as pretty in the shade as it is in bright sunlight. Two coats on most nails, a third on a few nails where I applied a little thinner. Dried fast like holos often do.

Lyster

The weather was noooot fun today, hot and super moist, everything was sticky. Instead of packing a bunch of even stickier makeup on I did very little. Some slight colour correcting by applying my regular foundation almost as a face cream, just rubbed a thin layer on with my hands. To feel a little extra safari I applied my two favourite glowy face products – Manasi Makeup Lyster Cream Bronzer to create some luminous shape and LUSH Feeling Younger Skin Tint as a highlighter on all high points. See the colour of the highlighter? It has a really unique “orange creamsicle” kind of colour and I’ve even managed to point it out on other people when they’re wearing it just because of the unique shade. Two products that work great together!

Shimmering Sun

Todays look! I layered two lippies (a bright orange and a pinky coral red) so the lips would match the rest of my look, a yellow dress and coral red nails, and it turned into a bright and warm coral red. I should have something that looks just like this but without all the mixing, shouldn’t I? The eyeshadow matches aswell, a super soft wash of a bright peach with gold shimmer. I love to wear a consistent colour theme.

Dolce Vita

Här är en look med NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil i färgen Dolce Vita som jag skrev om igår! Älskar denna färg alltså. Jag lyssnade på senaste Lana del Rey-albumet (SJUKT BRA!) när jag lade makeupen så den tröttögda, nästan raka eyelinervingen dök i stort sett upp av sig själv. Jag spårar ur totalt med feta fransar just nu dessutom, stora, flaxiga och lite grungiga är nyckelorden och denna mascara gör jobbet väldigt enkelt.

Jag provar även en ny primer från PürMinerals just nu, den har jättefin glöd och ser fantastisk ut på huden men jag vet inte riktigt om den gör några underverk som primer.. Mitt ansikte kändes mest bara halkigare än vanligt när jag skulle applicera min foundation. Hm, jag ska testköra lite längre och se om jag får en bättre uppfattning, i värsta fall får jag använda den blandad med ansiktskräm dagar då jag är utan foundation, eller om den kanske till och med fungerar som highlighter. Vi får se!

 

Here’s a look featuring the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita that I wrote about yesterday! Adore this colour. I was listening to the new Lana Del Rey album (INSANELY GOOD!) while doing my makeup so the heavy eyed, almost straight eyeliner flick just kind of appeared by itself. I’m totally getting carried away with fat lashes right now aswell, huge, wispy yet a bit grunge are the keywords and this mascara very easily does the trick.

I’m also trying out a new face primer from PürMinerals, it’s glowy and looks amazing on the skin, but I’m not sure that it performs wonders as an actual face primer.. My face just felt more slippery than usual when applying my foundation. Hm, I’ll keep going with it and see if I change my mind, worst case scenario is that I’ll start using it mixed with moisturizer when I’m not wearing foundation or that it actually works as a highlighter. We’ll see!
