It’s the last day of my 5 days of makeup challenge! I have to say, it’s been both challenging and fun.

This final look is all about the glitter lids and orange-red lips. And a bit about the skin as well. You might have noticed a slight glowy skin trend going on with me at the moment and this look is no exception.

The beautyblender Re-Dew Set & Refresh Spray

I got some more new products (in pr) and here I just had to try the beautyblender’s new Re-dew Set & Refresh Spray*. The Re-Dew Setting Spray contains hydrolized silk, hyaluronic acid as well as some light oils and even probiotics. It can be used as a setting spray, before foundation, spritzed onto a sponge or just as a refresher during the day.

It’s only been my first time trying it so I’m giving you my first impressions. First of all, I love the packaging. I also like how fine the mist is – it’s easy to spray on. I can’t wait to try it on top of my foundation and powder, since it should make them melt together nicely. But for my first time using it, I wanted to see how it works with a foundation that is quite full-coverage and semi matte, since the spray has some hydrating properties. The foundation I used was one of my favorite foundations, Clarins’ Everlasting Foundation+. I sprayed my damp beautyblender with the mist and blended my foundation with that in sections. My skin can get a bit dehydrated and right now that foundation is a bit too matte for my liking. But paired with this mist – it was perfect! It gave the foundation and my skin a nice hydration boost – with some glow.

I also got the original beautyblender in a new color: electric violet swirl*.

5 days of makeup challenge

I used NYX Glitter Goals* liquid glitter eyeshadow in my first look of this week so it’s only suitable to end this week with the same product. Here I applied it straight onto my lid to, whereas in my first look I just applied a touch of it. Again, as I said, I love how easy these glitters are to work with. No mess whatsoever, since they are in liquid form.

5 days of makeup: Fresh coral tones

Surprise – in today’s makeup I’m not modeling myself. Instead I’m sharing some photos of my beautiful friend Susanna and showing off a makeup I did on her. Every now and then we do a photoshoot together and I do Susanna’s makeup while she does my hair.

Fresh & natural makeup with coral tones

I love doing Susanna’s makeup, because even though she gives me a general idea of what she wants, I get to decide on the final outcome. This time I did a fresh glowy look on her that is very natural and toned down. It highlights Susanna’s natural beauty. Her beautiful complexion, big round eyes and lips. Not to talk about her eyebrows – all I had to is do a few strokes of brow pencil and they looked flawless.

It’s funny how pretty often when I’m doing makeup on my friends, they ask for neutral, brown tones. Here I used pink and coral on the eyes – and it still looks quite natural, right? I guess what I’m saying is that don’t be afraid of some color. And especially pink. Pink looks surprisingly beautiful on different eye colors. I also used some pinky coral on the cheeks and lips.
