My Everyday Beauty Essentials

Hi everyone. I hope you are not all miffed about my long absenses once in a while, but school does have a nasty habit of interfering with my life. We have a lot of reading in my Dickens class and I am starting up my final project in another class, so things do get a bit hectic and thus time runs fast. Sadly, I don't feel that inspired by the projects so they aren't something I would blog about.

Nevertheless, I thought I would share with you my favourites in beauty products. These are my everyday products more or less, and I thought that maybe you guys would like to know what a student in Denmark spends her student scholarship on - besides books, pens, and paper.

I am quite the beautyholic. I love beauty products, far better than shoes and dresses. My favourite products would be lipsticks and nail polish. However, I was actually a slow starter with makeup since I was in the local swimming club's elite class, and therefore it was a surprice finding days where my hair was dry! Naturally therefor, I couldn't be bothered with applying makeup and cleansing my face constantly.
So my everyday makeup routine didn't come into being until I was about 17, and high school took the place swimming had had prior.

However, I have always (or since I was 13-14 years old) used daycream and nightcream, and often also eyecream. Otherwise, I think my face would have dried off due to chlorid water and constant showering. But I feel bad if I skip it, and it can be counted on a single hand how many times I have skipped cleansing before going to bed. I hate waking up with makeup smudged out everywhere.

I also tend to use the daily skin care routine, and now also makeup routine, as a kind of meditation and self-appreaciation time. I feel more at ease and the best days are the days where you just know that you look great and don't really need to touch-up constantly.

But anyways, these are my current favourites:

*Tromborg Deluxe face cream (Danish organic brand) I am so glad to have found this one. I feel like a goddess everytime I apply this. And the smell is like heaven.. And even though I am not all-in-green, I do like my skincare to be without the most terrible stuff.

*Guerlain Météorite Perles de Nuit This was my Christmas present from my Mother. I adore the silver pearls and the gorgeous glow it gives. I am quite pale, so this shade is really amazing for my teint. Wish this was a regular colour and not just a LE. Love the packaging as well.

*Chanel Extracils mascara 12This particular is in brown. I really like the subtle look this gives. Perfect everyday eyes. But it is a constant back and forth between black and brown depending on the rest of the look.

*Yves Roche Luminelle Rouge Dragée lipstick no. 65. I buy from post-order companies like Yves Roche and Oriflame. Especially their lipsticks are quite amazing, and this tone is actually just a tiny shade darker than my natural lip colour, so it is perfect throughout the day.

*H&M Hello Kitty Darling Pink nail polish and Maybelline Blue Ceramics nail polish. I change my nail colours A LOT, but the first is one of my all-time favourites and the last one is a recent purchase which I adore in bottle and on nail.

*Bobby Brown blush in Peony. Normally, I wear pink blushes, and even though this looks rather bold, it gives me the porcelain doll teint without it being too 80s either. And the fact that it is called Peony is a treat in itself!

*Shisheido Lilac Irise eyeshadowI love lilac tones, and this, as well as Max Factor's Lush Lilac, is one of my daily wears. 

*Wood edt. This is from a Danish equivalent to a 1$ store, but it so amazing! I don't like the citrus scents or the too flower-y scents, so this is more subdued and more interesting. More masculine in a way. I guess that's a good thing since I tend to be very feminine otherwise.

Okay, that came out to be a lot of writing! Hope you injoyed it nevertheless...
