The Beauty Edit
Advertisement (as in a few products where gifted)
I am very much into beauty, in fact I once thought that I would end up as a stylist/make-up artists doing both beauty and fashion. However there are so many talented people doing beauty these days. I love watching YouTube and learn about new techniques and products; YouTube was in fact where I learnt a lot of what I know today about make-up and beauty.
Even though I am not the best in the business or an educated make-up artist, I do think that I have some knowledge about the topic, and that I have found some pretty amazing beauty products that work for me! Please do keep in mind that my skin type is normal to combination, where I get oily in the T-zone.
1. YSL Touche Éclat All-in-one Glow Foundation
I have actually been getting loads of compliments when wearing this foundation, where people are saying that my skin glows. What I like about this foundation is that even though I have oily skin, I can still wear it. I would say that it´s light to medium coverage, and actually smells super nice which is rare for foundations I personally think. I apply this with my Real Techniques beauty blender sponge, and it soaks into the skin seamlessly.
2. Erborian CC Crème
I bought this CC cream in Paris in December, and I have used it pretty much every day since. It's white when it comes out of the tube, and turns to color when you blend it into your skin. It blends really nicely into the skin, so it doesn't look like you are wearing makeup. When I apply this, i usually spread a good amount around my face, before I blend it in with my hands to really warm up the product. Then I "patt" it into my skin with my trusty beauty blender.
3. YSL Touche Éclat Face Highlighter Pen
4. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This concealer costs like 4 pounds in Boots in the UK, so I always stock up on it when I am over there. Not only is it super cheap, it also works wonders for the price! When I apply this, I use the applicator and put it under my eyes, on my forehead right between my brows and upwards, down the bridge of my nose, on my cupids bow and some on my chin. Then I also blend this out with the beauty blender.
5. Nars Laguna Bronzer
I have been using this bronzer for as long as I can remember. Every time I am in a country where there is a Sephora, I stock up on this one. The color is perfect for contouring and for bronzing up the skin, or that is at least my personal opinion. Even though it has a few shimmer specks in the product, it doesn't show up on the skin. Remember skin isn't naturally matte, so why would one use only matte products?
6. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
7. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in C Pop
8. MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush
9. YSL Couture Brow
Lately, I have been obsessed with only using colored browgel on my eyebrows. I think it gives more of a natural result, while also giving them more definition and color. I have quite bushy eyebrows, but they are also sparse meaning that they don't really look that full unless I color them or use some products. This one from YSL is super good, but the Maybelline one is defiantly a good dupe for it.
10. Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Filler
11. Mac Cosmetics Prep+Prime Fix+
12. Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer
This one is another product I have been using for years. One of the things I love about it is that it literally lasts for a year or two, not even joking. You need the tiniest amount, and the eyeshadow sticks all day, no creasing.
13. YSL Top Secret Eye Perfecting Fluid
14. Huda Beuty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette
I have been loving this palette lately. Bought it in Paris at Sephora, and I have been using it almost every day since. I am currently loving experimenting with colored eyeshadow, and especially orange, purple and pink. One would think that people would look weird at me for wearing those kinds of colors on my eyelids, but actually people have been stopping me asking for where my eyeshadow is from!
15. YSL The Shock Mascara
16. Clinique High Impact Mascara
17. YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara
18. Maxfactor Clump Defy Mascara
As you can probably tell, I have a lot of different mascaras that I am loving lately. This one is the cheapest one, but it's just as good as the others. The perfect everyday mascara, that separates the lashes while also giving them length and volume. My lashes are quite stubborn, so I need a good mascara to keep them staying up all day, and this works wonders!
19. Clarins Eclat Minute Lip Comfort Oil
I really can't live without this lip oil. It soothes my winter dry lips, smells amazing and the applicator is so so soo soft. I don't really like the smell of the other, more colorful ones of the comfort oils. The one I have is the original one, and it's truly amazing.
20. Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick
21. YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lipstain
22. Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in Mehr
23 & 24. Nars Audacious Lipsticks in the colors: Anita & Raquel
If I could only pick one lipstick, or one lipstick range that I could wear for the rest of my life, it would be the Nars Audacious lipsticks. They are quite matte, but at the same time so moisturizing and soft on the lips. I have three shades from the range (all the nude ones haha), but these two are my favorite! Defiantly worth a try, if you are a lipstick lover.
25. Balmain Silk Perfume
It's perfume for your hair, in the most amazing scent ever! What more can I say?
26. Balmain Texturising Salt Spray
27 & 28. NCP Olfactives perfumes
These are perfumes that you can mix and match with each other! There are a wide range of smells to choose from, some woody and some more floral. I think it's so much fun to try out new perfumes, and especially when you can mix them yourself to find that perfect scent that fits you.
I hope you got some new products that you want to try out, or some new tips and tricks to use with your already existing beauty range. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments or send me a direct on Instagram or on my Facebook page!
