Luxe Look

IMG_8781When I woke up this morning I felt a little blahhh so I wanted a little pick-me-up in terms of make-up. I’ve had a couple of products from my London haul that I had never touched before and so I thought today would be the perfect occasion. Even though I had nowhere special to go except for work, I whipped out my most luxurious products and went all out.

For my base I obviously chose the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in number 4. I cannot believe I finally own this, as it’s nowhere to be found in my hometown, but I came across it in Stockholm and just had to go for it right away. It’s quite price-y but I had been saving up for this and knew I would love it so I think it’s justifiable. One pump gives me a light coverage, but today I went for two pumps to create a wonderfully even complexion.ย And may I just say: I LOVE the finish! It’s not too matte but definitely also not on the shiny side, it stays on for hours and isn’t as heavily scented as my Dior BB cream. Absolute winner, but I’ll dedicate this babe a full review coming soon!
Any pesky spots were – as usual – covered up with the NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and then everything was set with my MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder.

For brows I went with my MAC eyebrow pencil in Fling and a good contour was done with the Sleek Contour Kit in Light. As you can tell I went a little heavy-handed into my Bobbi Brown Peony blusher, but I didn’t mind it too much. I did a bit of an eyeliner with the Maybelline Master Precise liner and gave my lashes two good coats of MAC’s In Extreme Dimension mascara.

To finish off I applied NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil for the first time in the shade Red Square and am really impressed with it! It’s easy to apply, doesn’t dry out my lips and stays on very well. I will also post a review on this if you’re interested?

  1. You look absolutely stunning!, I am loving this look on you. My goodness you’re a gorgeous girl ๐Ÿ™‚ I was gonna get the Nars concealer the other until I realised that I will be broke this month if I bought this (considering that I have bought so much stuff).. so I have to save up for it. Nars is quite expensive here ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Loving your post sweetie. It’s great, as always โค



    • Thank you lovely, I can only give that compliment back ๐Ÿ™‚
      It’s definitely worth saving up for, really really nice product, it absolutely living up to the hype! Don’t think I’ll be buying too much beauty here in SE either though, crazy mark-ups on literally everything!


  2. You so damn gorgeous! I’m so glad you love the Luminous Silk this much ๐Ÿ˜‰ And who doesn’t like to doll themselves up when they are feeling a little blahh … I certainly do!
