BEAUTY. I’ve been dying to try Kjaer Weis organic makeup line for ages and when I stumbled upon it at Magasin du Nord in Copenhagen I decided to stock up on a couple of pieces. And thank God I did, because I think I might have found the holy grail of foundations.

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’.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, Oil free.
TINTED MOISTURIZER. Since I’ve been getting a whole lot of comments about my makeup, I thought I’d start a new series here on the blog called “Beauty favorites” where I dish on my must-have beauty products. First out is one of the products that I absolutely can’t live without, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturize SPF20.
I first discovered the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer earlier this summer when I wanted to find something light to wear on hot summer days. I bought the original oil-based one but noticed that it made my face look a bit shiny so I changed to the oil free version and have been wearing it ever since. If you’re looking for a lot of coverage you might have to look elsewhere but if you just want something really light that evens out your skin tone a bit, this is the perfect product! I’m using the lightest shade called Porcelain, which miraculously works on my super pale face (if finding jeans with a good fit is hard, you should try finding a foundation that looks good on really fair skin – almost impossible).
This baby also contains SPF 20 which is great for protecting your skin from sun damage. Some people find this one a bit pricey but I never compromise when it comes to foundation (or in this case, tinted moisturizers). The base, in my opinion, really is what makes or breaks a good makeup, and I think it’s worth investing a couple of extra bucks if you find something that works for you!
