Red lips

Last week I took a little photo tour with the amazing photgrapher Theresia Pauls. Having some red on me that day, she matched me with the perfect lip colour by Dior.

I have always been a fan of their lipsticks and glosses but was kind of hesitant to use orange undertones. I thought this colour would go much better with dark hair but I quite liked this one. This bold look is something that I probably wouldn’t normally wear for daytime but it’s perfect for a night out.

The rest of Theresia’s photos are coming soon! Meanwhile you can check her out and book her via tpauls.com

Make Up Store

One of the best things about living abroad for me is exploring new brands I had never heard of before.

Although I had dropped in Make Up Store Stavanger a few times before I had never actually bought anything. It is a Swedish brand that produces make-up and skincare. I like this shop because of the plain black design and the wide colour range you can find on everything there.

This week I picked up two amazing products from Make Up Store. An eyeshadow that I use as an eyebrow powder and a lipstick, that looks pinky transparent with glitter but actually turns out to be a coral shade on the lips. It can be worn over lipstick for a bit of sparkle or alone for a hint of colour and a nourishing effect.

Do you know Make Up Store? What are your favourite products?

Coral lipstick

This summer I really love bright pink and coral shades on my lips. My latest discovery is the Soft Sensation Colour & Care Lipstick by Astor. I wear it in 403 – Attractive Coral. It is super moisturizing and highly pigmented. The best thing about it is the SPF 20 that protects the lips from sun damage. The colour is really intense, so if you want just a hint of colour, you can lightly dab it onto your lips or dab away with a tissue after applying.
