A vacation away from makeup.

imageOmg, it has been seriously hot weather in Europe and in Scandinavia we have had hot, humid weather. I don’t know about you but in 30 degrees (celsius ) and humid on top of that it’s very difficult to wear any kind of makeup.

On top of that I’m about half way through my maternity leave with my son. He is getting more active and is not sleeping as much anymore. Which means I have very little time to think about makeup, do my makeup, or write about makeup for that matter.

 

At this point I’m just excited to have time to apply my trusted Clinique Superdefense moisturizer with SPF 20 :). On good days I manage to apply my Maybelline Instant Anti-Age ‘The Eraser Eye’ perfect & cover concealer. On great days I’ll also manage a coat of

Clinique Superdefensemascara.

But truth be told I don’t put that much effort into it at this point. Because of long walks with the stroller I find myself more tan than I’ve been in years. I always find that tan skin doesn’t need that much makeup. Also, I’m a strong  believer in being in the moment, and right now the moment is my super cute son. But I’m excited to find myself in a new moment again in some months, when my baby starts daycare (yes, that’s what we do in Denmark, we put our kids in daycare from the age of 11-12 months 🙂 ).

Then I’ll be back at work and I will apply makeup everyday – 🙂

Så kom pakken endelig! Jeg har ventet og ventet, jeg har skrevet til firmaet og jeg har gjort ved, for jeg har lavet lidt mere makeup shopping (Because I’m worth it!). Denne gang på et nyt og uprøvet site, HQHair.com. Man skulle ikke tro, at de har så mange fede makeupmærker, når de hedder noget med hair, men my oh my, jeg var ved at gå ud af mit gode skind, da jeg så, hvad man kan købe. Bourjois, Caudalie, Maybelline, men ikke det Maybelline man kan få i Danmark, nej, de fede Fit Me concealers og foundations og Instant Anti-Age Eraser Eye, som jeg hører så meget godt om. Der er gået lidt foundation palooza i den, men jeg kan blive ved at købe dem. Jeg er altid på udkig efter at få min hud til at være lidt pænere, lidt mere glødende, lidt mere, lidt mere…. og så er jeg vil med BB og CC creams til hverdagsbrug, derfor købte jeg Bourjois 123 Perfect CC cream. Det specielle ved den er, at den indeholder 3 pigment colour corrector; orange, grøn og hvid, hver med deres egenskaber. Jeg er glad for den grønne corrector, fordi det dæmper det røde i min hud. Og så hedder den Luminous Complexion & Smooth Skin 24 hr Hydration SPF 15. What’s not to like! Continue reading “HQHair.com makeup haul!!!”
