MAC Haul!

Posted on 25 June 2015

To say that life has been chaotic over the past few weeks would be and understatement, but after a week in our new home I finally found some time to edit this MAC haul that I filmed just before we moved out of our last apartment. There's been so much going on lately it's absolutely crazy, BUT  I've finally gotten round to filming the answers for my Q&A that I talked about in early May. Hopefully that will be up later today, tomorrow at the very least. I'm actually getting ready to visit my mom because I lost my grandfather earlier this week.

I hope you enjoy my MAC craziness, and I hope you're ready for tons more videos coming up over the past few weeks, I'm just bursting with fresh ideas!

An overview of my collection before the move

Posted on 11 June 2015

Time flies so fast, and suddenly it's less than a week until we finally move! I've been packing for weeks already, and before I pack up the rest of my make-up collection, I thought I would give you a little overview, since you guys have been so patient in the wait of my updated collection video. I promise that I will film it as soon as I have everything set up in my new apartment, and this time I don't have to wait for this or that to arrive in the post.

So as you may guess from the first photo, my old setup is pretty darn cramped. Our old apartment is filled to the brim, and this didn't make it any better. It's in our bedroom, and on the left you see a Hemnes dresser, and on the right an Alex unit, both from IKEA. The Alex is faced so that the drawers open underneath the table, because that was the only way it would work. Back when I filmed my first collection video in 2013 this is where I kept almost my entire collection. The tabletop itself we got from a building supply store, and cut it to our liking, before adding on two legs (also IKEA). It was ugly, and super cheap, but it worked. The lamp is so old I don't even know where it from (but probably IKEA, of course), and the mirror is, you guessed it, from IKEA. I didn't feel like haning a bigger mirror since we were hoping on moving, which was obviously a good decision.

On the right side I have my two sets of Muji drawers. These are quite expensive, but easily worth it.  I have one with five drawers and one with two. The drawers are arranged by type of product, I do love order! On top I have an array of products that don't fit inside, things I want to keep handy and an old glass full of anything in pencil form, plus mascaras. On the right side I have a small towel, which I lay down before doing my makeup for two reasons, because the table doesn't get too dirty and you'll also have something to wipe things on. On the other side I have my main MAC-palette, which contains all of my most used shadows from MAC.

On the other side of the table I keep my make-up brushes (I'm right handed). I keep them in small drinking glasses, categorized by cream products, face powder brushes and then eye brushes. I also have my brand new acrylic nailpolish display which I ordered off eBay. It has six shelves and is suppost to fit about 48 polishes. It looks super sad in this photo because it came just a few days after I packed most of my polishes, but I promise you will see it in all it's glory in the upcoming video.

And there you have it. It's not very impressive, and I never loved it, I just ended up with this solution because I was absolutely desperate for a place to sit down and do my makeup in peace and quiet, instead of having to do it in a bathroom. This was seriously all I could fit. So if you're in a tight spot (literally), consider just DIY-ing your own vanity instead of buying one.

Net-a-Porter Luxury Beauty Haul

Posted on 10 June 2015

It's time for another haul! I feel like I just did a haul video, but I guess it's actually been over a month. Today I have my first ever Net-a-Porter beauty haul, with makeup and skincare from Charlotte Tilbury, SK-II, Lancer and Hourglass. I absolutely love NAPs beauty department, and I'm so glad I finally placed an order. They even had free express shipping at that time, which was great. I've given my first impressions of the products in the video, but you will probably be hearing more of them in the near future as well. I have to admit I have been on a bit of a cheeky shopping bender as of late, and there may or may not be a haul coming your way next week as well!

Get Ready With Me | Simple Everyday Look/My Current Look

Posted on 7 June 2015

'Get ready with me' videos seem to be growing on me. I'm not a very big fan of doing tutorials, but after watching tons of GRWMs over the past months I felt inspired to make one myself. Plus, it's been almost six months since my last one! I've really been loving this look, it looks polished without taking forever, and it's not a million products either. As you may notice I did change my outfit before heading out, but never really caught it on camera. When I stepped out it finally felt like summer (for the first time this year), and I had to run in and change. I absolutely love this green jacket from Zara, that I finally got to wear. It's simply, but such a fun pop of colour, and it really made me stand out against the typical black Norwegian uniform. Which I love!

For anyone wondering, yes I did speed up the video quite a bit. Watching it in realtime would be incredibly boring, and I felt it was unnecessary. Hair and make-up took 10 minutes each, which I definetly consider quick and fit for an everyday routine.

I hope you enjoyed the video, and if you want to subscribe to my YouTube channel you can do that HERE.
