THINK PINK. Last week H&M’s new store concept & Other Stories finally opened in Stockholm and even though I kind of wanted to buy everything, the only things I left with was two lipsticks. One in a fun bright shade called Ninon pink, and one in a more subtle, sheer pink for everyday use named Reticella Pink. Mixed together, they turn into this gorgeous raspberry pink shade which is excactly what I’ve been searching for!

LIPSTICK & other stories “Reticella Pink” & “Ninon Pink” (similar shades here & here). FOUNDATION Dior diorskin ‘Nude’. BLUSH Glossybox (similar shades here). HIGHLIGHTER Nars ‘Copacabana’.

LIPS. When I do my makeup I usually tend to go for a pretty strong eye but these past couple of days I’ve been experimenting a bit with bold lips + naked eyes and I’m starting to become more and more obsessed with the look. Not only does it look super fresh, it also saves you so much time when you’re in a rush. Check out the picture above for some great inspiration on how to perfect the look!

LÄPPAR. När jag sminkar mig brukar jag oftast lägga mest fokus på ögonen, men de senaste dagarna har jag experimenterat lite med röda läppar + osminkade ögon. Det ser superfräscht ut och är perfekt om du har ont om tid innan du ska iväg på morgonen. Spana in bilden ovan för grym inspration!
