As you guys can probably tell I got my hair cut and coloured. I just felt like changing something up and it´s really weird how just a new haircut can totally shift your mind-set. It was a Littlecoffeebreak moment just for me to sit at the hairdresser getting al pampered. The first thing we did was to colour my entire hair darker and the brown that we went for had a tint of red, which just adds some warmth. Than I also got some highlights done as well for some dimension. For the cut I went pretty short and it just looks so much healthier now. This is not the first time I have had this hairstyle or at lest I had something similar last year around this time. I just think it is very fall and winter appropriate. So the scary question, what do you think?
If you’re in need of something quick and easy last-minute to rock for Halloween, if you don´t feel comfortable dressing up or if you simply aren’t doing anything special for Halloween but still want a touch of Halloween feeling than I have the look your you! This is the easiest and most discreet Halloween look you will ever see, it´s black and red lips!
All I did to create my Halloween lips was to first line my lips using a black pencil eyeliner. I also filled in the outer corners of my lips with that same black eye pencil to give it a darker look. Than I used a bright red lipstick which I applied using a lip brush so that I wouldn’t destroy my lipstick by getting to much black eyeliner on it. I chose to top it off with some non-coloured lip-gloss just because I thought it looked better but that’s obviously optional. A very simple Halloween look for all us “last minute not comfortable in a crazy costumes” people.
Oh, I almost forgot: Trick or treat?
I have to be honest and say that when I first started using the Vitamin E Serum in oil from the Body shop I was worried because I knew people who had broken out from this specific line of products. But since I am such a brave person (not really) I decided to give it a go.
First thing I should probably mention after my little introduction is that this product has worked really lovely with my skin and I haven’t had any problems with my skin not liking it. This is a serum and oil combine which you apply at night, I use it before my moisturizer, and it is supposed to work as an 8 hour beauty sleep for your skin. I just love that description, it´s really cute but let´s get back to the actual results of this product now, shall we? Okay, I have to admit that I´m really impressed by this overnight treatment because my skin actually feels very soft when I wake up in the morning. I also love that the oil sinks into your skin very quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all.
I like to focus the oil especially on areas where my skin is a bit dryer, like around my nose, and when I wake up in the morning I notice that the area isn´t looking as red or dry as it did the evening before. I wouldn’t say this product is cheep but compared to many oils and serums out there the price is much more reasonable at least which also is a huge plus from my account.
If you have tried the Vitamin E Serum in oil by the Body shop let me know in the comments what you thought of it!
I think we can all agree on that the feeling of jealousy isn´t the most attractive or flattering one. However even the most uncomfortable feelings can be useful and the feeling of envy can be really helpful when it comes to finding out what you really want in your life.
What makes you go green with envy? Is it someone’s job or perhaps someone’s personal quality? The question of why you envy someone can often be answered by the fact that they have something or are doing something that you want. But how can that be a positive thing? Well as an example I can tell you one time when jealousy really helped me. When I used to watch Youtube videos I would go green with envy, not because of their success or the amount of subscribers these Youtubers had but because they were doing something that seemed like so much fun, something I wanted to do but didn’t dare. One day however I realised that if you want something you have to put yourself out there and so I stated LittleCoffeeBreak and I love it so much! I probably wouldn’t stated it however if I hadn’t have had that feeling of envy because it told me what I really wanted it! So whom to you envy? Use it as a guideline for what you really want out of life!
When fall and winter season rolls around the number one beauty trend every year pretty much are simply slightly darker colures. And when it comes to lip colours they are not always slightly darker but full on almost black red lipsticks. My self and some of you guys who might love sporting more natural makeup might me a bit intimidated by those darker colures. Here are my natural, but slightly darker, fall lip colours top picks. In three different formulas I might add so there is something for everyone here! MAC dervish lip liner – This is a good mixture between pink and a sort of mauve colour that just becomes a slightly darker version of your own natural lips. When rocking a darker lip I find that lip liner either on its own (applied over your entire lip) or with another colour on top, is a lot easier to get right as you have a bit more control over the product. You don´t want lipstick all over your face now, do you?
L’Oreal Paris nr 231 lipstick – When I first spotted this lipstick I didn´t think it was going to be anything for me but how wrong I was. This almost browny lipstick might look a bit intimidating in its lipstick form but applies just a sheer dark tint to your lips. Just be carful not to apply it to harshly, it´s easier to add more colour than to remove it. I would even suggest applying the colour using your finger for a lighter touch.
Chanel Wild Rose lip-gloss – Forget the sheer glosses that don´t give any colour and go for the darker and more pigmented options. This lip-gloss gives your lips a dark glossy finish and the formula of it is really amazing as it lasts, in lip-gloss time, very long. I find that this is one of those colures I can apply when I don´t have a mirror on hand or when I’m rushing out the door and i´m sure it will finish of my makeup look perfectly. A handbag staple for me during this time of the year.
Note: I know it´s Friday and that usually means tea party post but I thought I would change it up a bit this week! What do you think about the tea party posts? Or do you have another series in mind you think would be fun to see here in the Littlecoffeebreak world? I love to hear your opinions and suggestions because you are just as much a part of this little world as me!
I feel like Littlecoffeebreak is a place were we can talk about all sorts of things but I do write a lot a lot of posts about beauty as I find makeup really fun. However, I think it´s important that we all ask ourselves once in a while why we wear makeup and to really remember that it´s not something required to be beautiful and confident. I bet I sound like a hypocrite now but what I’m trying to say is that I think you should wear makeup for the right reasons. For me, applying my makeup in the morning is fun and a way of telling myself that I’m ready to take on the day. I also wear makeup for me, because it´s a way of treating myself and telling myself that I deserve to be cared for. I want to spend time on things that’s just for me as a way of showing myself love. I want you to wear a pink lip or contour your face if you enjoy it and find that it makes YOU feel good and not because you think others expect it. Life is to short to think about how others might see you, spend time of things valuable to you!
