The past week I have been in Hurghada, Egypt. The weather was beautiful and sunny. Now I’m back home and I’m not happy about it. I miss Hurghada already. I miss the sun as well. Today I have time for filming some videos and catching up on all the people who are doing vlogmas – I have a lot of catching up to do. Who’s your favorite youtuber doing vlogmas this year?
I love a minimal makeup without anything on the eyes but sometimes it just gets a little boring – that’s why I decided to go with a bold lip. I couldn’t decide which lipstick to go with so I gave you two options. The first one is Rebel by MAC and the second one is Stone by MAC. Stone is for sure my favorite. Which one is your favorite?
Ever since I saw the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette on some instagram account, I knew I had to get my hands on it. It took my a few visits to different Sephoras in New York – but it was worth it! The palette might be smaller than I expected but it’s the most beautiful palette I have ever seen.
All the shades are beautiful and when I use the palette – which is pretty much every day – I use all the shades. I use a mix of the powders on my face both as powder and highlight, I use a mix of the blushers and then I use the bronzer. I think it gives such a beautiful glow on the skin and it is for sure one of my favorite products I have ever owned.
My favorite makeup item has always been mascara because I think it’s the product that makes the most difference to a face. Here is a video where I show you how I apply my mascara and make my lashes look fuller and longer.
Recently I have been really into lipsticks and when I went to New York I bought all the lipsticks I could find – not really, but really! Here I have five different shades that will be perfect for winter time – or at least I think they are perfect.
The shades are darkish and berry-like. And of course gorgeous. I love a dark lip for winter and even though there isn’t a red lipstick here, I know I will wear red for the holidays.
What’s your favorite lipstick shade for this time of year?
These videos are always my favorite to watch and therefore I decided to film a What’s In My Bag video for you. The bag I’m using is my Céline Trio and it’s my favorite bag I have ever had.
Black nail polish gives me a throwback to when I used to dye my hair black and listen to rock music – so you can probably guess that I’m not a huge fan of black nail polish. But this nail polish from Essie isn’t quite black even though it looks like it. It is a dark – very dark – navy blue, and it’s beautiful. Normally I’m not a huge fan of blue but this navy does it for me.
I had to hunt this nail polish down and it has been on my nails ever since I got my hands on it. I’m sure it will be pretty with a glittery polish on top for the holidays. Glitter makes everything pretty, am I right?
Recently I had an interview for a job, and I decided to film my process of getting ready. So in this video I’m showing you my hair, makeup and outfit. This video wasn’t planned and it’s a very casual and relaxed video that I hope you will enjoy.
I have always been a sucker for matte eyeshadows. On an everyday basis I always wear mattes all over the eyelid and in the crease and if I’m feeling wild I will use a black matte eyeshadow as an eyeliner. So you can say that I’m all about that mattes, ’bout that mattes – no shimmer!
Don’t get me wrong – when it’s a special occasion like Christmas or New Years, I will use all the shimmer and glitter in the world. Because who doesn’t love shimmer?
My new favorite love is the Tartelette palette from Tarte which is just mattes – both cool and warm toned. There are both neutrals and a hint of purple shades. I’m absolutely in love with this palette and when I saw on Instagram that Tarte is bringing out a new Tartelette palette I knew I had to get it when it comes out.
Are you Team Matte or Team Shimmer?
Another month has passed and it’s already December which is crazy. I love December and I cannot wait for Christmas – but before we get too into the Christmas spirit I will show you the products I have been loving in November.
