Good morning starshine the world says hello, right I think you all know the rest. Today I’m not going to be the one rambling on and on in the littlecoffebreak world because today all eyes are on my beautiful best friend Rebecka. Some days ago we got talking about her favourite beauty products, or it was more of an interrogation, and I wrote down what she said so that I could share it with you guys. Littlecoffebreak isn´t just my world, it´s anyone’s who wants to be a part of it and so it´s important to me to incorporate others. Okay time to flashback to Rebecka and my little coffee talk about makeup.
“For my base makeup I always use bareMinerals makeup, I use the products that came with the starter kit. In the kit you get for example a foundation, concealer, setting powder, bronzer as well as three brushes, a foundation, concealer and blush one. The only thing I don´t like about the kit however is the bronzer because it´s way to dark for me. I wish they would vary the bronzer colour according to whether you get a light, medium or dark skin-color starter kit.
I apply my foundation using a fluffy brush and than I work it into the skink using circular motions to really make it look natural. Oh, I also use a primer on days I want my makeup to last a bit longer or I want to feel a little extra fancy. The primer I use is also from bareMinerals.
A handbag staple for me is Mac´s blotting powder. It´s great to use to touch-up throughout the day! When it comes to blush my favourite one is Nars orgasm. It´s a bit shimmery and perfect both for everyday or if I’m going out at night. I got it about a year ago when I was in New York and even though I use it a lot I still have more that half of the blush left!
The mascara that I’m currently using is Lancôme’s doll eyes mascara. I really like the shape of the wand and it really suites my lashes nicely as I have so many of them. I like the volume that it gives and the fact that it doesn’t clump. I always apply mascara to both my upper and lower lashes as I think it opens up my eyes nicely. A little mascara tip of mine is that after I have applied the first coat I go back and apply a little more just to the top of my lashes and it really lengthens them. You can really see the difference. Sometimes I don´t event bother with any other makeup, I just apply the mascara and I´m good to go.
I never really were eye shadows, I prefer a more natural makeup look. For my lips I usually just apply the Body shop mango lip butter. I really like it, it´s very moisturising and gives a tad bit of shine. I really like the finish and it´s perfect if you don´t want anything to crazy.
I always store my makeup in my makeup bag. I love the size of the bag because it´s so easy to bring with you.”
Thank you Rebecka for being so awesome and helping me create this blog post. It was super fun! You’re simply the best friend anyone could ask for and I love you loads, but you already know that!
