5 SHADES OF NUDE

Essie Polish
1. Merino cool 2. Master plan 3. Spin the bottle 4. Clothing optional 5. Lady like

Når man nærmest samler på nude lakker kan man godt ende op med rigtig mange i sit skab. Og de ligger jo bare der, kigger på dig hver gang du åbner låget til din neglelak kasse “pick me pick me”. Det er ihvertfald det jeg forstiller mig de siger, måske de tænker “not me not me” fordi de ikke vil bruges op? Who knows. Jeg er begyndt at bruge mine lakker mere, forsøger at finde nye måder at “style” dem på så jeg kommer igennem flere og ikke bare bruger de samme tre som jeg tror mange har tendens til. Mit seneste yndlings look at lave er dette “5 shades of nude” hvor jeg har taget mine yndlings nude nuancer (lige nu) og lagt dem på forskellige fingre. Synes selv det er ret fint. Jeg blev endda stoppet i fakta af en dame som spurgte hvor hun kunne få lavet negle som mine. Jeg var meget stolt men måtte dog skuffe hende da jeg sagde jeg selv havde lavet dem. Men mon ikke en salon kan lave det samme look. I think so. God fornøjelse!

english: When you are what I would almost call a “nude polish collector” you can end up with more than a few in storage. And they just lay there, looking at you every time you open the lid to the box “pick me pick me”. That’s what I imagine anyway, maybe they are all “not me not me” because they don’t want to have the color sucked out of them? No one knows. I want to use all my polishes more so I have tried different ways to “style” them using more than one color. My favorite combo right now is this “5 shades of nude” look where I have taken my favorite nude shades (at the moment) and used one color on each nail. I quite like it myself, I was even stopped at my local supermarket by a lady who would love to know who did my nails. I unfortunately had to let her down by telling her I did them myself. But of course any salon can do the same look. I think so anyway? Enjoy!

FLAMENCO RED LIP

L’oréal Paris / Lip paint matte in 103 red (shop here), Nars x Charlotte Gainsbourg / Lip tint in double decker (shop here), Lancôme Paris / Le lip liner in 396 insta rose (shop here)

Earrings / Sweet Deluxe (shop here)

De spanske kvinder er så inspirerende når det kommer til hår og make up synes jeg! Alle steder man kigger hen ser man røde læber, lange negle, statement frisurer og kul sorte vipper. For to dage siden så jeg en helt fantastisk plakat med en flamenco danserinde som havde høj ballerina knold og glossy røde læber – jeg blev forelsket på stedet og måtte hjem og prøve det af på mig selv. Jeg startede med at tegne mine læber op, men ikke for perfekt. Så brugte jeg L’oréal Paris’ matte lip paint for at skabe en solid base med dybde så glossen ikke løber nogen steder. Derefter sluttede jeg af med et godt lag nærmest lak agtig gloss fra det nye Nars x Charlotte Gainsbourg samarbejde. Slut looket af med nogle flagrende øreringe og en masse hårspray. God fornøjelse!

english: The spanish women are such an inspiration to me when it comes to hair and makeup. Everywhere I look I see red lips, long nails, statement hair and pitch black lashes. Two days ago I saw an absolutely stunning poster of a flamenco dancer with a sleek ballerina bun and glossy red lips – I instantly fell in love and wanted to recreate the look myself. Starting by outlining the lips but not too perfect. Then using the matte lip paint from L’oréal Paris to create the perfect dept and base for the gloss. We don’t want it to run anywhere. Finishing off with a almost vinyl glossy product from the new Nars x Charlotte Gainsbourg collaboration. Top it off with some loud earrings and lots of hairspray. Enjoy!

Jeg elsker hvordan man kan se alt på internettet inden man ankommer til et hotel. Man ved allerede hvordan udsigten vil være, hvordan rummene ser ud og hvilke farver de køre på hotellet. Da jeg så Domes Noruz online vidste jeg med det samme at jeg ville lave et bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look som kunne matche de smukke omgivelser. Alt her er beige, hvidt og brunt – et sandt instagram paradis. Den nye Coco family bronze kollektion fra Marc Jacobs er holdt i helt hvid og ser frisk, lækker og sommerlig ud – helt perfekt til dette look. Jeg har holdt makeuppen simpel med lidt glitter på øjenlågene og alt holdt i brun i stedet for sort så det ikke bliver for hårdt. Fregnerne er selvfølgelig valgfrie men i den her græske sol kan jeg ikke holde mine væk fra mit ansigt. God fornøjelse!

 english: I love how you can see everything on the internet before you arrive at a hotel. You know what the view will be like, what the rooms look like and what the colors at the hotel is. So when I saw Domes Noruz online I instantly wanted to do a bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look to match the beauty of the hotel. Everything here is beige, white and brown – a real instagram miracle. The new Coco family bronze collection from Marc Jacobs is kept in white and looks beautiful, summery and fresh so it fits perfectly. I kept my look simple with a touch of glitter on the eyelids, everything in brown in stead of black to give a soft summer feel to the face. Freckles are optional but I can’t keep mine of my face in this greek sun. Enjoy!

THAT’S HOW WE ROLL

Oh ja, lad os lige snakke om “the power of mascara” for det er i sandhed en ægte ting! Mascara er ingen joke, det kan virkelig make or break dit makeuplook. Og for rigtig mange er det en helt essentiel del af hverdagen. Som i kan se ser jeg meget anderledes ud uden mascara, mine vipper er fra naturens side hvide som sne og for at være helt ærlig føler jeg mig meget “nøgen” uden mascara. Mit “naked eye” er noget som jeg har lært at holde af over årene men mit favorit look er alligevel, nærmest alt med mascara. Derfor synes jeg også det er yderst naturligt for mig at åbne munden når et godt produkt rammer hylderne herhjemme. En piges mascara er meget personlig, vi finder ofte en vi kan lide (efter hvad der føles som flere års søgen) og så holder vi os til den. Vi ved hvordan den virker, vi ved hvor længe den holder og vi ved den er god, punktum. MEN der er en ny mascara på markedet, den nye Miss Baby Roll fra L’oréal Paris. Hvis du, som mig, elsker dine vipper lange og volumniøse så burde du prøve den. Den nye børste teknologi sikrer, at vipperne fæstnes i en perfekt kurve. Man siger endda man kan bruge den helt uden brug af vippecurler – ret fantastisk, jeg er fan! Jeg har lavet en lille mini tutorial nedenfor hvor jeg har brugt den uden at bukke vipper først! God fornøjelse!

english: Ah yes, the power of mascara, that is exactly what I am going to address today. Mascara is no joke, it can really make or break a look in my opinion. And to many people it is a very important part of life. As you can see I look totally different without mascara, my eyelashes are whiter than snow and to be honest I feel very naked without mascara. My “naked eye” is something that I have come to embrace over the years but my favorite eye look always has something to do with mascara. Therefore it is also natural for me to open my mouth when a good mascara is on the market and indeed my mouth is wide open this time! A girls mascara is very personal, often we find one we like (after what feels like years of searching) and then we stick with it. We know how it works, we know how it looks and we know it’s great and thats the end of that. BUT there is a new mascara in town, the new Miss Baby Roll from L’oréal Paris. If you, like me, like your lashes both long and voluminous – you should give it a go. The new brush technology ensures that the lashes are attached in a perfect curve so you won’t need your lash curler or any other tools to get perfect lashes. I am a big fan! You can see my try the mascara without having curled my lashes first down below – enjoy!

Hej I dejlige! Det smukke sommervejr fortjener en kommentar herfra i form af et makeup look. Mine ideer til makeup looks opstår oftest fordi jeg selv skifter min routine og derfor føler jeg har noget nyt at dele. Når det er sommer tilsættes hele min midterste ansigts region med fregner som løber fra det ene øre, hen over næsen og til det andet øre. Jeg er meget glad for mine fregner, i nogen perioder er de meget fremtræden og i andre, knap så fremtræden og derfor kan jeg godt lide at hjælpe dem lidt på vej. Så til dig der måske slet ikke får fregner, det her er også til dig! Alle steps vil blive skrevet på engelsk så alle kan følge med, god fornøjelse!

english: Hello lovelies! The wonderful sommer weather deserves a little shoutout from here in the form of a makeup look. My ideas for tutorials often appear when I change my daily makeup look and then I feel like I have something new to share with you guys. When the sun hits the sky I get a ton of freckles. Running from one ear, over the nose and to the other ear. The strength of the color in my freckles vary a lot from day to day and therefore I love to give them a helping hand sometimes. So if you don’t get any freckles at all and you want some, this is for you too! All the steps will be done in english below so everyone can follow, enjoy!

Step 1

In the summer I like to wear a very natural and almost transparent base. I mix one of my all time favorite foundations from Nimue with a great sunscreen from Kiehl’s. It’s a very light, dewy base that fits the hot days perfectly. If you only wish to wear sunscreen this one from Kiehl’s also has just a touch of color to it so you can use it to cover any uneven areas you might have. But I like to mix it, for me it gives the best result.

Here using:
Foundation / Nimue (call for retailer +45 33 32 33 22), Sunscreen / Kiehl’s (shop here)

Step 2

Let the light meet the dark! Sounds so dramatic but it’s kinda true in this scenario. To lightly conceal my under eyes I am using the YSL beauty touche éclat and to enhance my features I use the Benefit’s hoola contour stick. I love how it’s like sun on the face but shaped as a stick! I start with concealer to map out the light on my face and then I go in with the stick where I feel I need it. You know your own face best so do it as you feel fits your features. Bronze away my queens!

Here using:
Concealer / YSL beauty (shop here), Contour stick / Benefit (shop here)

Step 3

It’s it wonderful how you can buy glow? I am a huge fan of that concept – it’s pure genius. On my brow bone, the bridge of my nose and my chin I use L’oréal’s glam beige healthy glow powder and to create a killer combo I finish the skin of with a generous amount of pearly highlighter on my cheekbones. This one is from Becca.

Here using:
Glam beige healthy glow powder / L’oréal Paris (shop here), Pressed highlighter in pearl / Becca (shop here)

Step 4

Eyes, eyes and more eyes! It makes all the difference, especially for me who has blonde eyebrows and lashes. For this look I went all brown, using two L’oréal favorites of mine. The volume million lashes in brown and the Infallible eyeliner (also in brown). The reason why I choose to go all loco with the coco is because freckles will always have a brown and/or golden undertone to them and I wanted to match them with the rest of the makeup. It also creates a much softer look in the summer sun.

Mascara and Eyeliner / L’oréal Paris (shop here and here)

Step 5

I know it’s actually possible to buy “freckle sticks” in stores but I don’t see why you can’t just use something you already have in your makeup bag. I like to use my eyebrow pencils to create the extra freckles. Not just because I already have them and therefore don’t need to buy yet another product but also because I know they will match my skin tone. Because they kinda already do, I mean the color sits above my eyes. I use two different colors, first I use the liquid eyebrow tint from & other stories and make tiny dots from one ear to the other. This tint is slightly darker than my own freckles and creates a nice base. Next I take my Anastasia brow wiz pencil in taupe and I make slightly bigger dots right next to the other dots I just made. If you don’t know where to place the freckles, find a photo of someone who has freckles and notice how randomly their freckles are placed. It’s important to create a mess – a natural mess. If the freckles are too perfect it will look fake. I also tap a few on the side of my nose between my eyes because I also have freckles on my eyelids and I want them all to melt together into a non perfect but perfect mess. You know what I mean?

Here using:
Eyebrow tint / & other stories (shop here), Brow wiz / Anastasia Beverly Hills (shop here)

Step 6

Dab, dab, dab! For this look I like to gently dab over my new freckles when I am done drawing them. This makes them a little matte, instantly appearing more natural. Don’t over due this step though or you might just have to draw on all of the freckles again. Carefull roll the beauty blender over your nose and press on the cheeks – it helps to smile while you do it!

Here using:
Beauty blender (shop here)

Step 7

Ahh the lips, perhaps the most important! It’s kinda like putting a perfect bow on a perfect present! I choose a orangy nude’ish color for this look. I love these liquid lip cremes from Marc Jacobs beauty – such a nice finish. I am crazy about this color! I think it would be lovely on all girls, regardless of skin or hair color!

SMILE! You look wonderful!
Thank you for tuning in.

BANG A DANG DANG

Hair by Moroccanoil and Saco Copenhagen

Det er ikke så tit jeg bliver klippet. Mest fordi jeg har det lidt med at blive klippet som andre mennesker har det med at gå til tandlæge. Det er smertefuldt, unødvendigt og ikke verdens fedeste oplevelse. MEN – mit hår var virkelig blevet slidt, langt og dødt efter et års forsømmelse. Så jeg tog fat i vidunderlige Moroccanoil som jeg stoler blindt på og de anbefalede mig at besøge Saco Copenhagen. Her blev jeg mødt af salonens ejer Betty Christoffersen som skulle ordne mine lokker. Vi snakkede lidt om hvad jeg kunne tænke mig, hvordan jeg normalt har mit hår og hvad jeg har det godt med. Ikke noget med “du har krøller, så du skal have etager” – en frisure jeg har lidt under mange år fordi frisører bare ikke vil lytte! Men Betty var anderledes, vi snakkede meget undervejs om hvor langt vi var nået og hvad jeg gerne ville have samt hvilke produkter fra Moroccanoil hun brugte og hvordan jeg selv skulle bruge dem for at tæmme min nye frisure. Jeg endte med en kort fortolkning af Brigitte Bardot’s ikoniske 60’er hår og for første gang i mit liv gik jeg fra salonen og følte mig hørt, glad og smuk! Tak Moroccanoil og Saco Copenhagen fordi i lyttede!

english: It’s not often I get my hair cut. Mostly because the way I feel about going to the salon is the same way most people feel about going to the dentist. Painful, unnecessary and not awesome at all. BUT – my hair was seriously neglected, long, dull and dry. I consulted wonderful Moroccanoil who I trust blindly and they recommended Saco Copenhagen. I was met at the door by the owner of the salon, Betty Christoffersen, who was gonna do my hair. We talked for a while about what I wanted, how I liked to look and what I felt comfortable with. I didn’t get the usual “Oh you have curls so we will cut you in layers” – a hairdo I have suffered under for years because hairdressers just don’t listen! But Betty was different, we talked a lot during the cut about how far she had come and also about what Moroccanoil products she used. Just like she told me what Morroccanoil products I should use at home (and how) so I could tame my new locks. I ended up with a shorter version of the iconic 60’s Brigitte Bardot haircut and for the first time in my life I left the salon feeling heard, happy and beautiful! Thank you Moroccanoil and Saco Copenhagen for listening.

Så er dagen her endelig, ih hvor har jeg glædet mig! Jeg har siddet i ELLE’s VIP-lounge hele formiddagen hvor jeg er blevet forkælet fra top til tå! L’oréal’s fantastiske makeup team har lavet mit hår og min makeup til i aften. Jeg er meget inspireret af Audrey Hepburn de her dage, særligt fordi jeg i sidste uge fandt ud af at jeg kan børste min nye pandehår til siden og få et look lidt lige som hendes. Eyelineren er stærk, vipperne er fyldige og de sarte pink detaljer matcher min kjole! Jeg laver en af de kommende dage et helt detaljeret post omkring mit look + hvilke produkter der er brugt, men jeg kan jo heller ikke afsløre for meget! Husk at følge med på instastory hvis i vil følge mig rundt i dag!

english: The day is finally here! Oh how I have waited. I’ve been in the ELLE VIP-lounge all morning where I have been spoiled rotten! The amazing L’oréal makeup team has done my hair and my face for tonight. I am very inspired by Audrey Hepburn as I found out my newly cut bangs could be brushed aside to look kinda like hers did. The eyeliner is bold, the lashes are plump and the subtle pink details match my dress! I will do a post about my look in details but I won’t give away too much too soon! Remember to check out instastory if you want to follow me around today!

Det er lidt tid siden jeg har lavet mine 5 månedlige beauty favoritter men jeg har testet nogle super lækre produkter i sidste måned som jeg rigtig gerne vil dele med jer. Så her får i dem. Jeg har testet lidt til huden, lidt til fødderne og lidt til læberne! God fornøjelse.

english: It’s been awhile since I have presented my 5 beauty favorites of the month but I have tested some great products the last month that I really want to share with you. I have tested something for the skin, something for the feet and something for the lips. Enjoy!

1. Le Lip Liner / Lancôme
290 Sheer Raspberry’ (shop here), ‘114 Tangerine’ (shop here)

A good lip liner is like a drug to me. I have several and every time a new kind is launched I have to check it out. Lining the lips is very important to me. I love a precise lip! These lip liners from Lancôme have a beautiful matte finish and are very easy to apply. I love them already.

2. Hydra Genius Aloe Water / L’oréal Paris
(shop here)

Like you should drink a tall glass of water multiple times a day, your skin also needs a drink! This liquid is not only super hydrating but also calming for the skin. I love the way it feels and the smell. Works well for me both in the morning and before bed. Check out what I have written down below nr. 4 – there is more use for this liquid!

3. Foot Mask / Miqura
(shop here)

Stupid shoes and rough sandy beaches can really f*** up your feet during the upcoming season. I love to bring these softening socks with me on vacation every time. Healing and nourishing, these baby’s will work wonders in just 20 minutes. Be good to your feet, they have to carry you your whole life.

4. Day Cream / Magasin Du Nord
(shop here)

When I started testing this face cream I honestly didn’t expect much from it because of it’s price. But as I applied it on the back of my hand I really liked the texture so I went ahead and applied it to my face. I actually found, besides that it was a totally fine face cream, that it together with the L’oréal Aloe Water makes a genius makeup base if you have quite dry skin like me. My foundation went on so smooth and looked dewy and fresh for hours. I loved the result!

5. Liquid Lip Creme / Marc Jacobs beauty
’454 Truth Or Bare’ (shop here), ’452 Fawn over me’ (shop here)

Some of my favorite lipsticks in the world are created by Marc Jacobs, you will know this if you have followed me for a little while. So, you can imagine my face when I was told that they were launching liquid lip creams. I was SO excited and luckily I found, after testing them, that they are amazing! The pigmentation is beyond great and the wear is super long. Huge fan!

Det er altid dejligt når noget man er glad for kommer i en ny og anderledes version. Ikke fordi der er noget galt med det produkt du allerede kender og elsker men fordi det nogengange er dejligt at prøve noget andet. Dette betyder selvfølgelig også at du har alt ret til at købe nyt. L’oréal Paris har netop lanceret de klassiske Color Riche læbestifter i en ny og forbedret version. Jeg er selv en rigtig læbe pige, går nærmest ikke udenfor en dør uden læbestift (noget jeg har fra min mor) og jeg elsker alle slags. De cremede, de glossy, de gennemsigtige, de longlasting – jeg kunne blive ved. Og selvfølgelig, de matte. Jeg elsker hvordan farven træder endnu mere frem under den matte overflade og hvordan man kan bygge på farven så man selv bestemmer intensiteten. L’oréal har netop lanceret 6 nye matte Color Riche nuancer som kommer i en ny lækker indpakning. Disse 4 er mine favoritter! Er særligt helt forelsket i den røde, den har den helt perfekte orange undertone som gør at den rigtig “popper” på læberne. Perfekt til sommer! Happy shopping!

english: It’s always great when something you love is launched in a new and different version. Not because there is anything wrong with the original product you already know and love but because it’s awesome to try something else. It also gives you the undeniable right to buy new supplies. L’oréal Paris just launched the classic Color Riche lip colors in a new and improved version. I am a true lip girl myself, I rarely step outside my door without having lipstick on (something I got from my mother) and I love all the different kinds. The creamy, the glossy, the sheer, the pearly, the longlasting – I could go on and on. And of course, the matte’s. I love how the color stands out like no other lipstick does, the more you layer the more intense the look, you can build your own unique look under the matte surface. L’oréal just launched 6 new matte Color Riche colors in new and delicious packaging. These are my 4 favorite colors! I especially love the red, it has the perfect amount of orange undertone that makes it “pop” just the right way on the lips. Perfect for summer! Happy shopping!

L.A er hvor jeg bliver ladt op med inspiration. Alt jeg ser bliver til en idé. Atmosfæren, menneskene, farverne. Oh ja, alle farverne. Jeg får lyst til at male alt omkring mig i stærke farver, får i det hele taget bare lyst til at dyppe mig selv i farver. Stærkt farvet tøj, statement smykker – forskelligt farvet makeup? Kæmpe ja tak til det sidste! Jeg er helt forelsket i trenden om at bruge stærke farver i sin makeup. Dette makeup look er inspireret af farverige Venice Beach. Jeg har brugt en næsten ketchup farvet eyeliner og mascara for at gøre mine øjne super blå. Jeg har brugt en lettere koldt farvet blush direkte på mine kindben og hele vejen op til mine tindinger for at indramme ansigtet og virkelig lade blushen komme til sin ret. Den skal ikke have for lidt! På læberne har jeg blandet to lip paints, en beige og en nude bær farve. Den kombination er simpelthen så smuk synes jeg, lige til at bide i! Yum! Er jeg den eneste som er sulten?

english: L.A is inspiration central for me. My mind just wanders with everything I see. The vibe, the people, the colors. Ah yes the colors. I get a serious desire to paint everything around me in strong colors, I get a desire to dip myself in color actually. Strong colored clothes, statement jewelry – fun colored makeup? Hell yes to the last one. I am all over bold makeup these days. This look was inspired by the bold colors of Venice Beach. I used an almost ketchup colored liner and mascara to make my blue eyes pop. A strong trace of cool colored blush lined directly on the top of my cheekbones and going up into my temples for a strong outline of the face. For the lips I mixed a beige and a berry nude – I love the combo, it’s what I would call “bite-able”. Yum! Anybody else feeling hungry?
