Window 5 – 2014

Window 5 surprised me with…

A Smoky Black Eye Definer

There’s usually not many make up products in the calendars. So this was really nice.
It’s an eyeliner that is supposedly long lasting and waterproof (according to the website).
I’m looking forward to trying this since my most used look when I go out is smoky eyes.

My new glasses

Today’s got my glasses.
Here’s how they look, I made a kind of sloppy makeup just to try it out with them.

These are really different from my old ones, they only had frames in the top and were slimmer.

I’ll need to learn how to apply makeup to enhance my eyed properly for these.

Window Number 20 – 2012

In window Number 20 there was

Lucka 20 Stängd

Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover – 250 ml

Lucka 20 Öppen

I got one of these last year to, and it’s a really nice remover. Sadly it doesn’t work on waterproof make-up, and I usually use waterproof mascara. They have a camomille remover for waterproof make-up to, it’s a cream and I’m hoping to try it sometime. Even though I’m not a fan of cream remover.
This is a watery liquid that’s easiest to use with a cotton pad/ball. I usually put some on a cotton pad, hold it against my eyelid for a few seconds and then gently pull it downwards to remove the make-up. It has a very mild scent that’s not disturbing at all.
I’m almost out of mine, so getting a new one is really good. Too bad it wasn’t the waterproof one.

Winter is Coming – Face Guide

winter-is-coming.jpeg.492x0_q85_crop-smart

Here’s my Face guide for winter.

I were going to poost this earlier, but then I got dry in my face and bought new products for dry skin to try out.

Your face is really exposed to the cold and windy weather. So it’s really important to tale good are off the skin in your face.

1. Clean
Use a mild cleaner that’s made for your skintype.
Also make sure your make-up remover isn’t to harsh on your skin.

2. Scrub
Scrubbing of dead skin helps the moisturizer go deeper. And sometimes the dry patches you feel might just be dead skin.

3. Toner
Use a toner to calm your face after scrubbing. Watch out for alcohols!

4. Moisturize
Since the winter air is drying make sure to moisturize well.

5. Eyes
Don’t forget your eyes. The cold weather isn’t nice to the delicate skin around your eyes.

Make-Up Remover

NiveaWaterproof Eye Make-Up Remover
The Body ShopCamomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover

I usually use Waterproof Mascara, but I dislike creame Make-Up Removers so usually I remove my Eye makeup with the Liquid Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover and then Use the Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover only for the mascara. It’s the easiest way of preventing the cream remover from getting in my eyes.
When I use foundation I actually still use the Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover, but I put a bit of it in a bottle with a foam pump.

Cleanser

DSC_0655     DSC_0659

L’oreal – Triple Active Fresh Cleansing Gel Hydrafresh – Dry and Sensitive Skin
L’oreal – Triple Active Fresh Cleansing Gel Hydrafresh –Normal and Combination Skin
L’oreal – Triple Active Balans Cleansing Milk – Normal and Combination Skin

Here I usually use The Cleansing Gels, but if I’m in a hurry or need a cleaning touch up during the day I use the Cleansing Milk.
When I bought products to combat the dry spots I got in my face I chose to buy the same serie so the skin would already be somewhat familiar with the products.
I’m really satisfied with these products, they don’t feel drying or to heavy and they cleanse good. The gels work to remove some makeup, I usually don’t bother with make-up remover if it’s just a little blush.
The Cleansing Milk is nice but I’m not a huge fan of products that you apply and then just removes with a cotton pad. It doesn’t feel like I get all the dirt of my face if I don’t rinse it of. That’s why I only use it for touch-ups if needed.

Scrub

DSC_0660

L’oreal – Triple Active Beautifying Stimulating Scrub – All skin types.

Works well and isn’t to harsh on the face. This is a daily scrub, but I use it every other day.
I prefer to keep my face products in the same range. At least until I find some products that really work for me.

Toner

DSC_0656
L’oreal – Triple Active Balance Refreshing Toner – Normal and Combination Skin
L’oreal – Triple Active Comfort Gentle Toner – Dry and Sensitive Skin.

Yes, The bottle on the left is empty.
I used the Refreshing Toner and when I ran out I were going to buy products for dry skin, so then I switched to the Gentle Toner.
The Refreshing Toner does contains alcohol but the Gentle Toner doesn’t. I never saw the Refreshing Toner as drying thought.
I usually apply toner with a cotten pad, but the Gentle Toner I Apply with my fingers since it doesn’t get absorbed so easily bu the cotton pad and when it does you need a lot of it to go over your entire face. That was not the case wit the Refreshing Toner.

Moisturizer

DSC_0661     DSC_0662     DSC_0663

L’oreal – Triple Active Fresh Gel Cream – Dry And Sensitive Skin
L’oreal – Triple Active Fresh Gel Cream – Normal and Combination Skin

I used the one for dry and sensitive skin until my skin wasn’t dry anymore, now I use that one as a night cream and the one for Normal and Combination skin as a day cream. The textures are different and the one for dry skin is a lot thicker.

Eye Products

Garnier Nutritionist Caffeine Eye Roll On
100% PureOrganic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
Åhlens – Eye Cream Q10 &Vitamin E

I’m really bad myself at this step, but the skin around my eyes feel so much better when I don’t skip this step in my routine.
First I use the Caffeine Eye Roll On and let that dry in, then I use the Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream for moisture. This combination really combats dark circles and I really like both products.
The Eye Cream Q10 &Vitamin E is usually in my bag for minor touch ups since I don’t really like it that much. I don’t do touch ups the days I were make up.

I think that was all for todays post.

Window Number 3 – 2012

Behind the third window we have

Lucka 03 Stängd

Super Volume Mascara – 2,5 ml

Lucka 03 Öppen

I already have two other mascaras from The Body Shop, however I almost never use them ,especially not during winter.
I prefer waterproof Mascaras.

I will try this one and give my opinion on it. – I should probably do a post with my mascaras. – The packaging is cute,small, black and sparkling and it will be a good thing to keep in my purse for touch-ups.
The brush is normal sized and a bristle brush.

Todays make up look.

Today I made a simple look with brown shadows and pink lips.

    

I used a light beige and a brown shadow on the eyes and finished with a brown liner and black mascara.
The lipstick I’m wearing is Smashbox Electric Pink. It’s a matte pretty strong color, so I just slightly dabbed it on my lips.

***

I also got an appointment at a hairdresser, I’m going there at 11 on monday. I’m going to cut and color, the tips will still be a little darker, but I wanted to avoid bleaching. Sonce I’m coloring at the hairdresser I don’t know if I can try the healing oil treatment in the color, I might bring it and ask, but I don’t know. Feels like it’s kind of rude.
