There’s no doubt that sculpting & highlighting is the strongest makeup trend for this summer and hopefully to the end of eternity. Doing my contour and giving my face a beautiful glow is actually my favourite part of doing my make-up. I love how you can play with your natural features and emphasize them. Let’s get to the review! All of these products are from Makeup-Online which is a danish website that sells hyped & awesome brands & products.
- BH Cosmetics Forever Nude Sculpt & Glow - I love this palette so much cause of it’s amazing variety. I absolutely adore the gorgeous burgundy blush colour at left but since my skin tone is extremely fair I like to use it as an eyeshadow instead. It’s a beautiful powder formular which lasts all day on my eyelid with a proper primer and it gives a gorgeous vampy look. Honey you don’t need no mac eyeshadow for that! I have also had a hard time finding the perfect contour colour for my skin tone to a reasonable price.. But the brown shade in the middle of the BH Palette is absolutely perfect for sculpting. When you use a brown shade with an orange tone to contour with you can easily look dirty which is not always the greatest look but it’s all about preference. By using a cool toned brown you will instead create an actual shadow which will highlight your cheekbones in a more natural way which is what I personally love. Those 2 are my favourite shades in the palette & I use them constantly in my every day make-up routine for a little something extra! The warm brown bronzer at right is also really lovely. I like to use it with a big powder brush & a light hand to apply where the sun hits on my face for a sunkissed bronzed goddess look. The square sized highlighter in a yellow shade at left is nice if you don’t like too much glow. It has a pretty sheen but it has too much of a powdery texture which I am not really a huge fan of. I also prefer my highlighter to be crazy shimmery so I can glow like in a fairytale. But the light bronze toned highlighter at right is absolutely perfect for me and actually a great dupe for the “The Balm” highlighter. I like to use it over my contour when I’m feeling extra glamerous. It would also look freaking fantastic on people with a darker skin tone. Price: 190 dkk, available in Light Medium and Medium Deep.
- theBalm Cindy Lou Manizer - This soft peachy/rose toned highlighter is a wonder product. It can not only be used to highlight your gorgeous face but it also works well as a blush on fair skintypes and it is so pretty as an eyeshadow as well. The light-reflecting pigments help highlight your best features & it is truly amazing cause it’s not too sparkly so you won’t end up looking like a disco ball cause let’s be real, a fairytale glow is charming.. But no one wants to be a disco ball. The most important thing to know about this product is that a little goes a long way. I like to use it over my Rouge Bunny Rouge liquid highlighter to not only keep my liquid highlighter in place, but for some extra sparkle. On lazy days this is perfect on it’s own as well. You really can’t go wrong with this product. I also worship multi-products cause you really get more value for your money & a fun chance to experiment with your look without emptying your pockets. One problem I have with highlighters is that most of them emphasize my pores, but this one lays perfectly on my skin. The packaging is also so cute but it breaks easy to treat it with love! Price: 195 dkk, available in 2 shades on Makeup-Online.
I can’t believe that it is already July. Time passed by so fast. I can’t help but stop & wonder how quickly everything goes & how I always forget to enjoy every single moment. It’s scary.. Cause life is so unpredictable. Either way, let’s quit the melancholic vibe I have going on & go straight to my tracks of the month of June. I hope you enjoy listening to 4 of the greatest!

2. Mumford & Sons – Believe
3. Ciaran Lavery – Shame
4. Zella Day – Jameson

3.1 PHILLIP LIM MORGAN LOW TOP SNEAKER // (here)
3.1 Phillip Lim is probably the brand that I identify myself the most with. I absolutely love almost all of the designs, specially their bags & when I found these sneakers I instantly knew we were meant to be. They got a classic & minimalistic design but the blue satin details on the toe & the back gives the shoe a unique twist. I bought them on Shopbop for barely no money! – I think they were 70% off. The black model is sold out but you can still get it in a pretty sued peach.
If you love Fashion but can’t afford all the great and big brands I recommend you to keep an eye out on Shopbop. They always got the best sales & there’s a lot of money to save if you just invest a little time.
JOFAMA LEATHER JACKET // (here)
I have been craving a red leather jacket for so long and here it finally is, my new best friend! It is so gorgeous and very edgy. I have never owned any clothing in red as far as I know so I am really excited about this. There’s just something sensual about the colour red and specially in leather. I was quite afraid that it wouldn’t work with my blue hair but it actually looks really playful and fun paired with an all black outfit. I can’t wait to rock this jacket in an outfit for you all!
