The Finished look
Photography by Maria Jernov
This is a very light and clean makeup, I dont like wearing a lot and especially here in the fall/winter time I would feel bad about covering my skin to much, I know it’s already having a tough time settling with the dry air.
I like that even when I’m winter pale my skin structure is visible and many barely see that I’m wearing make up. My friends usually tell me how they want to be able to not wear makeup and still look good.
I think now that the biggest trend seem to be covering and then contouring your face like a mask, many actually find it more beautiful to be the best natural self, with a little help that light make up can give.
Hope you enjoyed my first real take on beauty looks, please let me know what you think!
What’s that about a baby and the crazy makeup photos? What?
Okay, there’s no baby, but theres a new adventure for couturekulten!
I’m now to find on Trendsales Magazine as well, see for yourself here.
The pictures was taken at a photoshoot I did with Elf cosmetics a while ago, they wanted to style a couture look.
Very sophisticated and very dramatic. What do you think?
MAC Studio Fix Lash – I have quite long lashes so I’m always looking a mascara which makes them look thick but not lumps together. This one is the best I’ve tried yet.
Loreal Super Liner – Whenever I feel like dressing up a lot, it included wet eyeliner, this one has great coverage and is easy to apply for both slim and thick lines.
ELF Concealer SPF 15 Fair – I like a powder concealer upon a BB cream, my cream concealer gives a shiny look combined with the BB cream. I uses the color fair here in wintertime, because whenever the summer comes I rarely wears concealer.
The Body Shop All In One BB-Cream 00 – My dry skin look way better with a BB-cream than foundation. The one from Body shop gives a light coverage, and not a “full face” feeling like a cream foundation, which makes it look natural.
Mac Eye Shadow Tempting – I love conturing and this Mac eyeshadow matches my skin tone perfectly. So yes I know it’s an eyeshadow, but it works brilliantly as a contour on me and my cheekbones looks super sharp.
The Body Shop 220, 130 & 340 – I’ve tried several lipstick brands but they all makes my lips go dry in a second. The Body Shops has Shea Butter as a main ingredient in their lipsticks which makes them much more comfortable. The have a huge variation in colors and both shiny and matte looks.
Yet again, I’m not a beauty-blogger, and especially not a specialist, but this is my experiences.

Last week I went to the awesome summer party held by elf cosmetics. We had great drinks, sweet snacks and got our nails and make-up done. I was so held up in the moment that I didn’t got any photos taken. But you can see a little bit on my instagram Couturekulten and on Simones blog here.
