Hello Loves!

First of all, I will try to make this blog post short, because I have a feeling that it might become way too long! 🙂 Today want to share with you my main make up which  I use during the summer. Some of the products are brand new for me but already beloved ones in my makeup bag ❤

If some of you doesn’t know, in my previous blog post I talked about my Morning Routine, and wrote that my skin never felt so good as it is at the moment, that’s why you won’t find any foundation in my make up bag any more, at least for now.

 To add some colour and brightness I use Loreal Glam Nude CC cream. It gives nice shade and covers any redness if I get during the day.  Very nice and light product, which you can also use as a primer for your foundation. But as it has some colour pigments I wear it alone.  On top of that, I add just a little bit of Insta Flawless skin tint from Rimmel. It’s brand new product in my make up bag, which I absolutely adore. Don’t know how well it primes (as you can also use it as a primer), but it gives a super natural and healthy glow for your skin and also perfects the skin colour. I have in a shade LIGHT MEDIUM 006. 

To brighten up a little bit my under eye are I use either Nude Magique BB Concealer from Loreal or Wake Me UP Anti-Fatigue Concealer from Rimmel. Loreal concealer it’s much lighter and it has a nice metallic bubble applicator, which calms your skim immediate and from Rimmel it has much more coverage and gives more luminous to your skin. Perfect concealer if you have dark circles, as it has some Vitamin C.

As for the bronzer, I’m currently using  Summer of Love from I ❤ Makeup, it reminds a lot to one of the heart bronzers from Too Faced, and can guarantee that the results are almost the same. So it’s a great dupe if you want to save up some money:) It has shimmer and some highlighter as well. Talking about highlighters, I still can’t stop using my all time favorite Wibo Strobing Make Up Shimmers Kit. I wrote about it on my March favorites, so you can read more about it here. And one more highlighter which I use time to time is from Loreal- Face Illuminating Powder in colour Wild Glow. Also a very light product. Gives a nice golden glow to your skin and you can build it up for a stronger effect.

Talking about my eyebrows, I use 3 products. Very cheap but such a good quality that I can’t stop re-purchasing it. I start with the Eyebrow Gel (colour 01 brown) from Essence. You can shape and create a nice form of your eyebrows and also add some light colour to it. After I shape my brows, I use Eyebrow Stylist Set  (colour 01 natural brunette style) from Essence as well. It nicely fills up any empty spots and adds a stronger colour to it. And finally to sett everything I use Tinted Brow Mascara from NYX. So I know, that my eyebrows will stay in place trough the whole day.

Old time favorite mascara primer, which I re-purchased already 3 times is Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum. No words needed for that- The Best and nothing will change it. For mascara currently I’m using The Classic Volume Express from Maybelline. I bought it in Moscow, and really liked it, so still using and enjoying my long and curved lashes. Good mascara, definitely worth to try!

Last but not least, are my favorite products for the lips. Ultra- Nourishing Lip Balm from Nuxe makes yors lips mega soft, it also has a bit of a strong scent of honey and some citrus, which can be a bit annoying for some of you. But a very good quality lip product, I also apply it every night before I go to sleep, so I know that my lips will be nourished during the night, and I will still feel that softness in a morning.  Another lip product I love is Lip Perfector from  YSL, you can wear it alone and have some nice natural glow on your lips, or wear it under your make up. It moisturizes, hydrates and makes the lip contour more visible. You can also use it instead of the lip liner for the day. And as a lip gloss I use Smooth Kiss, Glossy Lip Butter from VIctoria’s Secret. Smells like citrus vanilla and gives you a very nice and long lasting shine for your lips.

And I guess, that was it. All my favorite products from my make up bag, I use almost every day, if not all together at once at least some of it partly. Have you tried any of it? What are your ideas? Share your favorites on your instagram and tag me as @worldbyenrika would love to see what you like.

Thank you for reading and talk to you soon!

Love,
Enrika

 

Casual but different 


Hello everybody! Seems like summer finally arrived to my street as well. The days where you can wear dresses and no jackets makes me much more happier! ❤ 

As I gained a few kilograms I also started to wear more often dresses and skirts. It helps to style the outfit in that way where you can  “hide” the problematic areas bus still look well and put all together. 

For this time I chose two colored dress from  S. Oliver, very light and soft top made from cotton and the skirt part in a pastel pink which is much more stiff. 

My beloved slip ons from Atmosphere (Primark) and the backpack which I got from my mum, but don’t know exactly from where she got it. 

What is the key detail in every outfit you make -is to have a statement piece. Either it’s an accessory or a clothing piece, just don’t be afraid of trying and experimenting new colours or shapes, or styling the clothes. If you have a pretty plain dress with nothing crazy going on, just take a bag which is more extravagant or a necklac, so you can add some kind of spice to the whole look.

Summer is the perfect time to do this and I can’t wait to show you more of my looks.

Kisses,

Enrika

Orange is the new black

Hello my dears!

Summer is one of the best time to see your friends, go on a holidays or simply work but in a much better mood.

Sadly, I live in Denmark and its Scandinavian weather. Where it can be cold and raining one hours and the next is +22C again. That’s why it’s necessary to wear layers.

This time I chose a denim orange skirt, with a simple white t-shirt and a sparkly sneakers.  My new love is wool/cashmere cardigan in grey. Which fits perfectly with any outfit. Makes me feel cozy and keeps warm.  Continue reading “Orange is the new black”
