The A/W Beauty Tag

Hey, fellow beauties!

Today I have another tag for you! You know I like doing my tags, don't you? They're just fun to do and although most of the stress at Uni is over, I still have some exams to do this year and need to prepare for them as much as I can.
Which is also the reason this post is uploaded on a Wednesday instead of Tuesday, whoopsies!

What I wanted to do is the Autumn/Winter Beauty Tag (as you probably have guessed already). I stumbled across this over on Marie-Louise's blog, she is a Danish girl I just love so much. She just hit 500 subscribers on bloglovin, you can see she's amazing. 
Congrats again, honey! <3

Let's start!

What is your current go to foundation for A/W 13?
At the moment it's still my MAC Matchmaster foundation. I just love how easy it is to use although it could give me more coverage. I do think it's almost too dark for me now and I'd love to use my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation on a daily base, but it takes me too long to make it look good to be a staple for everyday, I'm still looking for a decent daily one.

What is your favourite lip balm for winter?
I do own many lip balms but I don't have one that actually blows my mind. I'm wearing lipstick on a daily basis which is why I'm not using a lip balm very often when I'm not at home anyways, but I think my favourite of the ones I own is the Burts Bees Lip Balm with mango. The packaging isn't the greatest but it just works really well for me.

If you had to choose to wear one lipstick shade all winter what would it be?
I'd love to wear red everyday but I don't think I could pull that off. You need to be in a good mood and feel confident to make a red work and that's not really me at the moment. Not on a daily base, that is. I'd probably go for a red tinted lip balm.

Describe your most worn wintery make up look?
Natural smokey eyes (Urban Decay Naked palettes, yay!), cat flick and a nude-ish berry lipstick. 

What beauty product would you most like to try next?
Can't decide there! There's three products I'm really fighting not to buy: Essie's Tuxedo nail polish, a gorgeous super-dark red that's almost brown, the new YSL rebel nude glossy stains (SO nice!) and the matt topcoat by Butter London.

What are your favourite products in your current skin care routine?
Two products by Clarins, the HydraQuench Cream which is my daily moisturiser and the Lotus Oil which I use after I've cleansed my face. My skin is so dry these days, I feel like it's literally drinking the moisture.

What is your favourite winter scent?
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. This scent is so elegant and lady-like that I can't imagine wearing it anytime else than winter because I like to dress quite casual in the warmer seasons. Plus, this is the only perfume my dad ever bought for me (he has a very sensitive nose) which is why it has a special place in my heart. :)

I want to tag everyone of you who reads this! Have fun doing it and please leave me your links or tweet them to me if you decide to do it.

Have a magical and wintery day!


  1. I'm in love with my MAC foundation at the moment. I am so sad that it has pretty much run out. I will continue to squeeze as much out of it as I can haha. I want the naked palettes sooooooo badly!

    1. I can totally understand you, it took me years to get hold of them because I didn't want to order them online, the shipping costs are astronomically high. But they're worth it, I've used them almost every single day <3

  2. Hello! You have a very nice blog. Keep it up!
    Greetings from Romania.
