Oskar has turned 1 year and started daycare 3 weeks ago – and I’ve finally moved into the Luelle office. Having worked from my home office for more than 4 years it’s quite a change to suddenly be in an office with colleagues and everything. It really feels good. And we’ve kicked off this week with some super interesting meetings and exciting things to come for both the blog and Luelle.
In the office I keep a touch-up bag with some beauty essentials, and these three all made the cut.
When it comes to makeup I’m pretty predictable. Foundation, blush, mascara, and that’s about it. And then this happened. L’Oréal Paris launched its Makeup Genius app, and suddenly I’ve been finding myself testing a whole lot of different makeup looks. Because all it takes is a smartphone.
It doesn’t come cheap but your skin is worth it. Anti-Aging Molecular Messenger Cream by Tromborg is a skin miracle containing more than 45 active ingredients as well as 11 different peptides that together gives your skin the ultimate anti-aging boost.
We all want a beautiful skin, and by choosing the right products you’re one step closer to achieving it. I’ve teamed up with Taxfree in Copenhagen Airport for a summer giveaway that gives you the chance of winning a large box filled with some pretty awesome beauty products. And trust me, your skin will love each one of them. Plus there’s something for your boyfriend too.
Summertime is travel time, and what better place to stock up on some beauty necessities than in the airport. When travelling from Copenhagen Airport I always make sure to stop by the Taxfree beauty department (and you should too) that truly offers one of the best selections of beauty products you can imagine.
With the summer party (and wedding season) upon us I made it my mission to find out how to create a makeup that lasts all night long. Using the right products is obviously the first step to achieve a long-lasting makeup, and since I’ve been a huge fan of Tromborg for years, it came as a natural choice to team up with the Danish beauty brand on how to create a super natural looking makeup that will make your skin glow for hours.
I love adding new nail polishes to my collection, and these two are the latest to move in with me. Together they become a really strong duo – Rose Caché for the toes and Tenderly for the fingers. I always do my nails myself, and while I don’t mind painting my fingernails myself I certainly wouldn’t mind someone to take care of the toes. Maybe I should start taking advantage of living only a 5 minute walk from one of the best nail bars in London. There’s even Mummy & Baby mornings there. No more excuses. — Jeg elsker at tilføje nye neglelakker til min samling, og de her to er det seneste, der er flyttet ind. Sammen udgør de en ret stærk duo – Rose Caché for fingrene og Tenderly på tæerne. Jeg lakerer altid selv mine negle, og hvor jeg absolut intet har imod at stå for det selv, når det kommer til fingrene vil det egentlig være meget rart at få nogen til at tage sig af tæerne. Måske jeg snart skulle udnytte at jeg bor kun 5 minutter fra en af Londons bedste negle saloner. Der er endda noget der hedder Mummy & Baby Mornings der. Slut med undskyldningerne.
When I was in high school I couldn’t enough of lipgloss, and I was not alone. My favourite was always the sheer one, and if you lost your lipgloss (which for some reason happened all the time) you could always count on your girlfriends to have one to share. Back in the days (we’re talking around 2001) lipgloss was a sticky affair, and I think that’s one of the reasons why I haven’t had a lipgloss in my makeup bag for the past 10 years. And then this happened. Chanel launched Rouge Allure Gloss, which combines the lipgloss with the lipstick. It adds a bold colour and lacquered finish to your lips, and I love the click case, which is both elegant and hygienic. Bring it on, ladies! Rouge Allure Gloss//CHANEL Da jeg gik i gymnasiet var jeg ret glad for lipgloss, og jeg var ikke den eneste. Min favorit var den gennemsigtige, og når jeg tabte den (hvilket af en eller anden grund skete ret ofte) så stod en veninde altid klar med sin gloss. Lipgloss var en klistret affære dengang i starten af 2000′erne, og jeg ser tydeligt for mig, hvordan hår og fnuller hurtigt samlede sig på kanten af den. Ikke lækkert. Og måske det er en af grundene til, at jeg ikke har haft en lipgloss i min makeup-pung de seneste 10 år. Indtil dette skete. Chanel lancerede Rouge Allure Gloss, der er en kombination af en lipgloss og en læbestift. Farverne er klare og læberne får en smuk glossy finish. Og det vel at…
No makeup bag is complete without a great foundation, but finding the right one is not that simple. We all want that healthy-looking, glowing and dewy complexion, and no matter how great your skin looks au naturel a few droplets of foundation is never a bad idea. Forget about those heavy and mask-like foundations – the best foundations complement your skin, and make it look its best without you even feeling you are wearing foundation. And obviously without people noticing it. #iwokeuplikethis, remember. Admitted. I love foundation and use it almost every day, so when Maybelline asked me to test and review the new Dream Flawless Nude Foundation I was in. The first thing I noticed was the light texture that really made it easy to blend into my skin no matter if I was using a brush or my fingers. Because of the light texture there’s no risk of streaks when applying it with a brush and I always find the result to be a bit more even. Use the dropper to drip a few droplets onto your wrist, and then apply it by starting around the nose and mouth, moving to the cheeks, chin and forehead as needed. The coverage is light but flawless, and the result is natural and long-lasting. Dream Flawless Nude Foundation by Maybelline. Available in 7 shades. Price £8.99.
At the moment I prefer my nails to be painted in neutral shades, and this Bobbi Brown polish named Rozy is a favorite. It’s somewhere between pink, grey and nude, and besides being the perfect colour it also lasts longer than most of my other nail polishes. After 3 days the polish still looks like I just applied it, and I didn’t even add a base or top coat. Ring//JANE KØNIG, Nail Polish//BOBBI BROWN (ROZY) Jeg elsker neutrale farver på neglene, og min nye favorit er Bobbi Browns Rozy. Den er et sted imellem pink, grå og nude, og udover at være helt perfekt i farven så er den også virkelig holdbar. Efter 3 dage ser den stadig nylakeret ud, og det uden hverken base eller topcoat.
