Good mornin'

Happy sunday! How are you feeling? I'm doing great! 🌸It's getting real cold in Norway, so had to start wearing coats again! It's really cold in the mornings and evenings, especially if the sun's not shining! I'm spending this day strolling around, checking out some vintage stores and grabbing a coffee to go. That's at least what I'm planning on doing. Do you have anything fun planned? 💘

#reklame / sponsored skirt


I got a lot of usage out of this skirt when I was in Copenhagen, such a pretty piece! I actually saw it on @Kajamarie first and became a little bit obsessed, so had to have it 🌸It's so much colder here in Oslo than it was in Copenhagen, so I'm glad I had the chance to wear bare legs and no jacket for a couple of days. I think this one is my favourite looks from cph, I feel like it's a perfect combination of fall and summer.

OKEY, so it's been a while since my last beauty post! Beauty is something that I actually do care a lot about, just not in a "let me show you 10 flawless makeup looks in 5 minuttes" on youtube kind of way. I probably won't do makeup videoes, ha ha. My passion is more about finding products that work! ✌I have very oily skin, big pores and kind of a rough texture, so I need products that will help me stay matte thoughout the day, make my pores disappear a little bit and of course a silky smooth finish.

For years I only wore pressed powders on my skin, because it was so oily. I thought that powder was the only thing that would stop the shine, and eeeeevery foundation that I tried just ended up in my fine lines and pores. I think it was last summer, when I was in Copenhagen with Hanne, I just stopped by a NARS shop and explained how my skin was like and what I needed from my products. The SA tested some products on me, and for the first time I actually found a liquid foundation that stayed in place, kept my skin matte and just... worked. That's when I realized that it all comes down to the pairing of the primer and the foundation! For years I thought that any primer worked with any foundation.. Well, that's not the case AT ALL. I actually tried the NARS foundation with a primer I had at home once I had used up the one I bought and the foundation acted completely different on my skin.. So, since they don't carry NARS in Norway (YET, it's coming, its coming!! 🎉) I had to find myself a couple of favourites I could actually get in store here in Norway!

So, I'm a google and youtube nerd, so when I'm uncertain of a product or don't get why I wont the result as promised I always use google. I google the products name + reviews, or my problem with the product. There is always someone that has experienced the same, ha ha. This is also a great way to get tips about other great products!

I have been on the lookout for a GOOD primer for a while and I actually first started using this one from UD, but someone sent me a tips about the one above being even better and I agree! It's perfect for my skin. I can also use it alone, because I can feel my skin getting more matte after applying. I usually wash my face, put on my Dermologica face cream, wait 2-3 minutes, then I apply 2-3 pumps of the primer in my hands and warm it up between my fingers before I apply it all around my face, but espcially in my T-zone. I let it sink for 2-3 minutes before I apply my foundation!

I love a good serum! I'm using this every night, and my skin just feels so soft. I can't use a serum or a oily cream before I do my makeup, so I always use my Dermologica day cream in the mornings, and the Estee Lauder serum at night after I've washed my face. Works wonders!

My biggest, biggest problem with any foundation that I've tried is that my skin gets oily, and feels oily, within maybe an hour. I usually would put on my makeup, have a coffee and go to work and when I arrived at work my skin was already messed up. I had to bring my entire makeup bag to work every day, because of my skin and because I worked in a store I needed quick solutions so I had blotting papers, setting powders, matting face mists and so on. Usually by lunch, my makeup was so bad I wanted to do it all over again.. The NARS foundation I mentioned above was a step in the right direction, and after I found out I couldn't get that one in Norway I finally found the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation! I get that some people find this one almost too "good", because it covers up everything and really, really stays in place. I've found that you can really build up the cover though, so if I don't apply that much I can also get a medium coverage instead of a full coverage. With this foundation I usually just need a quick fix during the day, and that is HEAVEN for me!

This really does just what it says! It sets my makeup perfectly, but I can also see a huge difference on my pores! It goes so well with the foundation from IT cosmetics, but I haven't tried it together with the Double Wear yet. I'll order it asap, and give you a little review!

The Urban Decay Primer, Estee Lauder foundation and this setting spray is a match made in heaven for me! I'm out of setting spray at the moment, and I can actually see a huge difference throughout the day. The foundation still covers everything and stays matte enough, but the setting spray just holds everything together! I also feel like my skin gets less oily when I use the spray!

When @Kajamarie and I left for Copenhagen I was out of foundation and before I got a new one I tried on her IT Cosmetics CC cream, and i love it!! I've heard about both this one and the setting powder before, and I already have both in my shopping cart, haha. So about time I tried it on! It feels so light on my skin but gives me the coverage I need. This one is perfect for sundays when you don't want to do a full face of makeup or if the Double Wear just feels like too much. I have to get myself one!
