Sephora Haul

Yesterday, Maria and I stopped by Sephora at Columbus Circle to restock some make-up necessities. Due to our overexcitement for makeup, and lack of shopping willpower, we ended up with a few items that weren’t on the list. Not as fun for the plastic as for us, but as Maria’s mum said humorously ” If you don’t look pretty now, you can’t blame Sephora” Here are some new additions, and old favorites.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in color 5 – I have yet to fin a foundation better than this one. It truly creates that flawless skin every girl craves.

NARS Bronzing Powder in color Laguna – an old time favorite.

Anastasia Contour Cream Kit I loved the powdered contour palette, so I can’t wait to try this one. In my experience, creams often look more natural than powder.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prosecco Pop/Pamplemousse. This brand is my go-to for highlighters, and these shades were perfect for summer.

(In addition to these products I use a primer from Smashbox and Dior, a corrector from Bobbi Brown, and a setting powder fro YSL.)

Kat Von D tattoo liner. The only liquid eyeliner worth having. The super thin tip gives a flawless line in a matter of minutes. A godsend for those of us that are used to spending 30 minutes and a package of q-tips to create a somewhat OK line.

NARS Larger than Life Long Wear Eyeliner. To enhance and brighten.

Milk Eye Vinyl in color Bridge. A liquid eyeshadow that creates a simple, dewy look.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in color Light 2, Vanilla. Perfect coverage and easy to work with.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, Original. This product singlehandedly changed my makeup game.

(In addition to this, I use Anastasia Brow Wiz and gel, Diorshow Mascara and various eyeshadows.)


Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in color 13. The perfect orange shade to compliment my soon to be tan skin.

And of course my beloved clear elastics. The rest are testers from Makeup Forever.

Summer of ’16

It’s been 2 months since my last post. What happened?  To be honest, I’m not sure. This summer flew by before I was able to spell the word itself. It may have something to do with the fact that I’ve been working around the clock. Even though I love my job, the walls of the local mall doesn’t exactly give you tropical vibes. Or a tan. In addition to selling shoes, I’ve been spending time with friends and family and enjoyed everything Norway has to offer – ranging from festivals to fishing trips.


However, as the saying goes, vacation is good, but everyday life is better. Hence, I’m very excited to get back to the city and routines. This semester is going to be though, but simultaneously adventurous. Fashion week, work, birthdays, trips and spontaneity is all on the agenda. Or you can’t really plan to be spontaneous, but you get the picture. Either way, this fall is going to be great, and I can’t wait to fill you all in on the adventure. Stay tuned.
