My very first makeup tutorial - how to create a green smokey eye look

This is my first try doing a makeup tutorial, so I appreciate all the feedback I can get!

Mongolian fur coat

I got this treasure at a vintage store in Copenhagen last winter, and I think it's by far the best purchase I've ever done. A genuine mongolian fur coat doesn't come by every day!

Blue smokey eye look

I decided to play around a little more with makeup, and created this look with a new eyeshadow and lipstick by MAC cosmetics. First I applied a primer (MAC prep + prime), then MAC Mineralize SPF15 foundation using a brush. Then I applied my long time favourite concealer from Lancôme followed by eye primer, highlighter and a bronzer by Tarte I use for shading.  My friend Regine recently recommended me to try the dipbrow pomade for eyebrows by Anastasia, and it's truly great - I'm so pleased both with consistency and the ability to draw "more" brow. The powder thingy from Makeup Store just didn't cut it. I use dark brow, and I think it's a suitable color. As for the blush, I cling to MAC peaches sheertone blush.

Done with complexion, and I'm adding my new MAC eyeshadow STEAMY to the inner eye towards the middle. Then I add TILT shadow (both frost shadows) in a triangle shape at the end of my eyelid. Use a crease brush like Sephora airbrush crease to add a brown shadow all the way from the corner of your eye and outwards, between brow and lid. Add some eyeliner (I prefer cheapo option by L'oreal!) and finish with your loose powder of choice. I prefer Chanel Poudre universelle Libre.

For the lips I'm in love with my new lipstick by MAC called Full Speed. I'm testing these make up tutorials and I hope you like them.

Out and about exploring new color schemes. It's getting cold, so I've made sure to stock up on Falke's new series of colored wool stockings. Finally they're making colors! The past winters have been so incredibly dull with my brown wool one!

Furry earmuffs

Wearing: HM sweater/ Vintage blouse/ Earmuffs Century 29It's getting cold outside and I've pulled out my Century 29 earmuffs from the drawer. They're like a comfy silencer as well, when I'm riding the bus I hear nothing but a slight murmur.

H&M Cocoon dress


Wearing: Dress H&M// Pumps & Other stories// Stockings Wolford

I got this beautiful dress at HM trend the other day, and I think it embodies a perfect 60's shape! I chose a larger size than I usually wear to make sure it would be big enough. Also the raglan sleeves are beautiful. Got to value a sturdy everyday favourite.

4 beauty essentials from my closet

I've added two new products to my beauty regime, the nourishing shampoo from Naturaltech Davines series and the apricot scrub from Ole Henriksen. Unlike many others, I'm not a fan of the scrub - it's very coarse and rough on the skin, and I wouldn't say my complexion has benefitted from using it. Next time I'll definitely choose a product with smaller granules - a good facial scrub is essential!

The Davines shampoo works really well on my dry brittle hair and sensitive scalp. Since I use a lot of product I also like that my hair gets really clean, it doesn't just smell great! Other products I'm addicted to is the Clear Improvement clay mask from Origins and Declèor Hydra-floral daycream.

Monochromatic blue outfit

Wearing: Zara skirt// Primark jacket// HM hat// Woolford stockings// Minimarket shoes

This is one of my favourite outfits, I love monochromatic blue! Also I got to bring my feather skirt from Zara out for a spin - it's perhaps one of my best purchases ever. If you like monochrome looks don't rush out and buy a whole color scheme at once, all the different pieces I picked up at different times, and suddenly it all matched. Keen on learning more about monochromatic colors?

Acne pants

Wearing: Acne trousers// Cubus sweater// secondLove fur stole // Acne shoes

I think the best buy I ever did was this pair of Acne trousers. I got them at the Acne Archives store in Elmegade, and I'd been stalking these for over 6 months to get some discount. Needless to say they're quite expensive - but oh so joyful! Combined with my wonderful secondlove mongolian fur I think my silhouette benefits from them both!
