American beauty favorites 2017
by Maria Jernov

Kan i gætte hvor jeg skal hen næste gang? Til det store røde, blå og hvide! Mit yndlings land, også det land som indholder nogle af mine absolut favorit makeup brands i verden. Som en lille opvarmning til min kommende tur har jeg samlet nogle favoritter fra mine amerikanske favorit mærker som jeg nedenfor giver en lidt mere detaljeret forklaring på. Glæder mig til at dele min tur med jer!

english: Can you guess where I am going next? The big red white and blue! My favorite country, also a country that holds some of my absolute favorite brands in the world. I have gathered some of my favorites from my favorite american brands (that was a lot of F’s) – as a small warm up for my upcoming trip. I look forward to sharing my trip with you!

Essie

This one you know, I am sure of it. Hands down one of the absolute best nail polish brands in the entire world. It’s not “just” the product that makes it so special to me it’s also the color range. You can get absolutely any color you might like, everything you imagine you want is already made and right there for you. Growing up as a beauty craving teenager I couldn’t get enough Essie and now that I am in my 20’s, well it hasn’t really changed. Here are some of my current favorites;

1. Now and zen (shop here), 2. Spin the bottle (shop here), 3. Chinchilly (shop here)

Anastasia Beverly Hills

That highlight tho! Oh yes, Anastasia’s glow kits took the world by storm when they were first launched and mine too. I have used up several and is now getting started on their newest launch “the ultimate glow kit”. I can tell that this one is going to be just as much a favorite as the other ABH glow kits.

Kiehl’s

Kiehl’s is still a new brand to me, I have only used it for about a year but it keeps surprising me. When you find a good moisturizer it kinda just gets stuck with you doesn’t it? No need to look any further, it’s just there for you. Through bad skin and good skin, sunburn and winter dullness. Well here is mine, for better and for worse!

Maybelline

Maybelline is known for many iconic products, it’s a brand I have used all my life. I think most girls my age has used Maybelline all their life, it’s just a part of growing up in the 00’s I would say. Probably older generations too, but I will only speak for my own. My favorite products within the Maybelline family is their lipsticks. Not only are the formulas amazing (doesn’t matter if it’s creamy, glossy or matte – they are all great) but also their color range. You can find any color you could ever dream of! Some of my favorite shades at the moment are these;

1. 770 Mauve it (shop here), 2. 660 Touch of spice (shop here), 3. 560 Raw chocolate (shop here)

Marc Jacobs

I love it when a great fashionhouse spits out an amazing makeup brand. It kinda brings it all so nicely together. Being a bit more classic than the otherwise sometimes wacky fashion brand, Marc Jacobs beauty has launched many great products. I keep coming back to their velvet noir mascara. It’s just great, thats all.

NYX

Ah yes NYX. What more is there to say? It just rocks! I have loved it ever since I first tried it in America and was just longing for it to hit Denmark, and when it did – oh pure joy. So much imagination, so much fun and oh so good. The products are just so great, long lasting and well thought out. I also love their price range, so friendly to everybody who loves makeup! The lip liners at NYX was my first love affair with the brand so here you go – you are welcome;

1. Los Angeles (shop here), 2. Cannes (shop here), 3. Brooklyn Thorn (shop here)

Mario Badescu

Another great pharmacy brand that came out of New York, Mario Badescu is an oldie but a goodie. Being quite the sensitive ginger, I have always been careful with what I use on my face. Mario Badescu is gentle yet effective. This buffering lotion has saved my face from lumps and bumps many times.

MASHA MA at Paris Fashionweek
Hair and makeup by L’oréal Paris

Location: Paris

Jeg er besat med blå lige for tiden, er også besat med farverige eyeliners og seje lokker. Arbejder på lige nu at lave et look som kan matche Masha Ma’s vilde verden, det er ikke så nemt som man tror. Altså hvor jeg beundre de seje makeup dare devils. De udstråler så meget sej energi! Håret og makeuppen ved Masha Ma’s show i Paris var prop fyldt med inspiration, det var bare at åbne øjnene og suge til sig! Der var alt lige fra stærkt farvede eyelinere til bløde bærfarvede læber og bare ansigter. Elskede også hvordan de brugte meget model agtige piger (du ved hvad jeg mener) men også ret utraditionelle piger som havde piercinger og farvet hår. Jeg har samlet lidt produkter lige nedenunder alt det her bla bla bla så du kan blive inspireret endnu mere til dette farverige univers. God fornøjelse!

english: Current obsession, blue – also current obsession colored eyeliner and cool locks. I am currently working on developing a super cool look inspired by Masha Ma, but to be honest, it’s not that easy. Ahh how I admire the makeup dare devils. So much cool energy flowing from those vibrant colors! The Masha Ma hair and makeup was super inspiring during Paris Fashionweek, so much edge. From the bold eyeliners to pouty berry lips and bare faces. Also loved how they both used very model looking models (you know?) to more unconventional girls with piercings, colored hair and a fierce appearances. I have gathered a series of products below all this bla bla bla for you to get inspired to try more bold colors yourself! Enjoy!

Jeg kan næsten dufte forår, sikke et fantastisk vejr vi har haft de sidste par dage i København. I dag er det lidt tungt og gråt udenfor så jeg kan slet ikke lade være med at dele disse sol svøbte billeder Laura og jeg tog i weekenden. Jeg styler meget skjorter udover t-shirts for tiden og er ret forelsket i den her rød på sart pink kombination. Jeg elsker hvordan en helt almindelig skjorte kan bruges på så mange måder. Støvlerne har været en rigtig “head turner” – jeg ELSKER dem! Føler mig som Julia Roberts i Pretty Woman, selvom hendes var sorte. Med hæl er jeg sikker på. En del har spurgt indtil om det mon var bukser? Ej hvor kunne det være sejt hvis de var, bukse støvler i lak – ja tak!

english: I can almost smell spring, what incredible weather that has been in Copenhagen these past days. Today it’s gloomy outside but I can’t help but post these sunny photos Laura and I took this weekend. I am styling shirt over t-shirt a lot these days and I love this red and light pink combo. I love how a regular fitted shirt can be styled so differently. The boots have been a real head turner – I adore them! I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, even though her’s were black. And had a heel, I think. Some people have asked me if they are pants, my god I wish! How awesome would a pair of pant boots in patent be?! YUM!

At rejse kan virkelig slide på immunsystemet. Når nogen hoster på flyet, hvor bliver de bakterier så af? De ryger lidt rundt i luften og videre til den næste. Ad. Det er meget vigtigt for mig at passe ekstra godt på mig selv når jeg rejser fordi jeg er et af de der mennesker som bare ret nemt bliver syg, får uren hud og/eller bliver unormalt træt. Jeg forsøger altid at spise sundt når jeg rejser men lad os lige være helt ærlige, det er fanme svært. Hvor mange gange har jeg ikke stået i en lufthavn hvor det eneste mad der var, var en slatten, oversmurt, ulækker sandwich eller en smattede “salat”. Der er ikke tal på hvor mange gange. Nogengange er der også kun chips og slik. WTF? Disse ting er nogle jeg normalt vil tage med mig når jeg rejser. Ved godt det er ret meget men det er super vigtigt! Jeg er så forelsket i de her små rejsestørrelse vitamin pulvere. Så smart at man lige kan hælde lidt green protein i sin smoothie eller tilføje lidt flere chia frø. De passer lige i tasken! I kan læse om alle de forskellige vitaminer via linket ovenfor. Jeg må dog lige fremhæve Vita Viva’s craving crusher. Når jeg har haft en super lang dag vil jeg ofte gerne bare tilbage på hotellet og spise noget sødt eller salt og disse hjælper virkelig til at jeg ikke over snacker når jeg rejser. Det er genialt!

english: To travel can really tear on the imune system. Someone coughs on the plane, where does those germs go? Around in the system and on to the next one. Ew. It’s super important for me to really take care of myself when I travel as I am one of those individuals that easily gets sick, breaks out and/or become abnormally tired. I try to eat healthy while on the go, but lets be honest, that’s not always so easy. I can’t tell you how many times I have been standing in an airport where the only thing available was a soft, flobby sandwich or a greasy “salad”. Sometimes nothing at all, just chips and candy. WTF? These items are what I will normally bring with me when I travel. I adore the little travel size powders, it’s so easy to just pop in some green protein or add some extra chias when having a smoothie. They fit right in your purse. You can read about the different vitamins and what they do via the links above. I must point out one travel favorite though, the craving crusher by Vita Viva. When I have had a really long day on the go all I really want is just something sweet or salty so this craving crusher helps keep that little snag in the tummy in place so I don’t snack all the time. Brilliant.

Måske den smukkeste sarte lyserøde i verden. Så skrøbelig, så smuk – så nem at forelske sig i. Oh ja og så er det jo lam, så ruskinden på indersiden af jakken har samme farve. YUM! Sat sammen med tern på tern og et par midi sandaler. Jeg kunne have det her på hver eneste dag.

english: Probably the most amazing sheer pink in the world. It’s so delicate, so precious – so easy to fall in love with. Oh and it’s sherling which means that the suede on the inside of the coat is the same color. Can you say yum? YUM! Pared with check on check and a pair of midi heel sandals. I could wear this everyday.
