Summer besties tag!

Hia guys! As with most of the tags I do, I tag myself :D these are my summer besties :)

1) Lip product

My Biocura Beauty lipbalm in Fruity and Shine. It's a lip balm and a lipgloss at the same time, it's super pretty and shiny, it smells really good and tastes like sugar :D it stays on for a long time and it's very light.. Loove <3

2) Blush and 5) Powder face product

I combined this category only because I don't use a powder or bronzer on a regular basis so this product covers both categories. My Rimmel London powder blush in the colour 031 BERRY, it probably looks boring which is exactly what I thought when I saw it in the store, then I swatched it and fell in love. It's very toned down and looks great on me, applies really well too :)

3) Nail Polish

I have sooo many nailpolishes I haven't got one favortie for summer. But this is a colour I have really been craving this summer! This is 070 from [b]asic. The colour shows up really bad, it's orange like the Blogspot icon ;)

4) Liquid face product

My mattifying face cream from Kult. I got the face wash and the face cream. The face cream STIIINKS! So synthetic but it mattifies and soaks in, something which is a huge issue for me! I haven't been using this so much but, so far so good :)

6) Hair product

Besides hair ties, it's gotta be my Garnier Mother of Pearl and Cherry conditioner. I always have a hard time untangleing my hair after showering, but this solves that problem. It gives a nice shine, makes my hair really soft and has a fantastic smell that lingers!

7) Eye product

This is my cream eyeshadow from Oriflame in the colour Sandy Brown. I looove this! I get compliments on this every time I wear it. I usually use it as a base and then I build my gorgeous nude-ish look onto this. It's love! <3

8) Self Tanner (or any tanning item)

I am white like a blank piece of paper! If I ever dare going out into the sun I go aaaaaall red! So I don't tan, in any way - not even self tan! I love my natural teint ;) what I do do, is use my sunscreen that I really like from Piz Buin which has some weird thing in it that enhances the slight colour I do get, so I guess it's kind of a tanning product.

9) Fashion accessory

I think it'll be these shoes. I really like them, I'm not one of those girls like them Sex and the City girls who always rund around in high heels, my feet get so soar! But the heels on these shoes aren't very high, the fancy but still casual. I really liiike them! :)

10) Clothing piece

This dress from H&M. This is the picture from their website but I do own this myself though ;) This one has a slight V neck I noticed and my doesn't. Otherwise it's the same model. Again I like this because it's comfy, dressy and casual all in one :)

Hope you liked the tag, please do your own summerbesties! I'd love to read it/see it, if you do please leave a link in the comments.

Nails: My current nail obsession

Hia guys! I work as a cashier so I get to see people's nails alot. About a year ago I saw this girl who had a french manicure in lilac glitter, I thought it was sooo tacky but also I thought it was really interesting. Just a little while ago I was at work again I saw a woman who had her nails in a teal glittery french manicure. But since I don't have a lilac glitter polish or a teal glitter polish so I just used what I had.

I couldn't decide whether I wanted to make it with gold or red, so I did both. The gold isn't that obvious, the red has more contrast but I really like both.

Here are some pictures I found on google.

I really like these pictures and I'm so inspired. Besides this being super pretty it's really easy too. Normally I do my french manicure in free hand, but this time I decided to use tape, just regular scoth tape. You can also use those stickers if you don't like using scoth tape. But I do reccomend trying to practice as much as you can because I really find that free hand works best :)

Yet another beauty tag!

14 questions, GO!

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

All of my palettes and eyeshadows. Simply because I feel like if you wear eyeshadow without mascara or eyeliner it looks like it's not done. Like a painting without a frame so I just think it looks better if you wear eyeliner and mascara without eyeshadow.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Never cut it again. Normally womens hair only gets about 70cm long naturally, and if the length is annoying you can just put it up.

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral. I'm afraid that I'm just not alot into the whole pink thing, I happen to think that it can easily look like too much.

4.) If you had $1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Makeup, I hate shopping for clothes. I only do it out of necessity.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Eyeliner as lipstick. I have a red eyeliner and a darker redish/brown that I actually use as lip colour. The best red lip I've ever had!

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Sephora, wider range of brands and wider range of prices.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
Eyeshadow colour since I normally forget to apply lipcolour or wipe it of because I feel like it has worn off.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
To be honest I wear the same clothes all year around, and what I wear is sort of a autumm type clothes so. Either way, it doesn't matter ;)

9.) Would you rather dark nails or bright nails all year round?
BRIIIGHT! Bright bright nails!

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Favorite lip product. My eyes is the best thing about my entire body, I love them and want to decorate them as nicely as I can!

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?
Messy bun. I think a ponytail looks so plain and a messy bun is just.. More relaxed, more boho.. I dunno, I just like it better.

12.) Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss. As mentioned earlier, I don't really use lipecolours on a regular basis.

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? or sharpie them in everyday?
If you by "sharpie them in" mean draw them on, that's what I'll pick. I simply can't imagine a face with eyebrows to express yourself with.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
A question I almost can't bear to answer! But I think I'll let the nailpolish go.

More posts will come!! It's just because I'm without camera at the moment so I can't really haul.
