Okay, so it's still winter and spring is nowhere even close to being here just yet - but, I couldn't help myself, I wanted to bring some spring vibes into the blog, so I stole some flowers from a bouquet of fresh cut flowers I had at home and tossed them into the mix. Maybe that will lure spring out early? A girl can try...
With a New Year comes an excuse to try new things, so I took that as an excellent excuse to update my make-up bag. Instead of re-purchasing what I'm currently using on my skin, I wanted to try something else for a change. Especially as one of my favourite beauty brands have just launched a make-up line, so of course - I "needed" to try something out. I'm talking about the organic, natural & Swedish brand Estelle & Thild. I'm so excited to try out their new foundation that's natural, organic, vegan and silicone free - and actually more skincare than make-up. It's their only foundation so far and is called the Biomineral Healthy Glow Foundation - I got the shade 121 which is a perfect match for my pale, olive skin. I haven't been able to properly wear this yet, since my skin decided to get a massive rash all over my chin last week (sigh...), but as soon as that clears up - this will be what I slap on when doing my make-up. I'll keep you updated on how I get on with it!
Moving on to something I have tried and loved for a while now; this little brown tube of goodness for my eyebrows - it's from the brand Essence and is called their Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. It's basically like an eyebrow mascara - it's purpose is to add color but also some extra definition as it's packed with little fibres that will give the illusion of fuller brows. Great for peeps with spare eyebrows, like yours truly. This is an amazing dupe for other more high end versions on the market, but for a fraction (and I do mean fraction) of the price. I'm using the shade 02 Browny Browns, which is perfect for me as a dark brunette.
Last, but not least, is this little pot from yet another Swedish and organic brand: Maria Åkerberg. It's a little mini size of their Face Balm Moist. It's a face balm, but I use it on my lips, hands and all different parts of my skin that feel dry. It's also perfect for a natural highlight. Tip: pat some of this balm on the high points of your cheekbones for a natural and healthy glow! It's 10 ml, so it's the perfect size to keep in your handbag.
