Today, I will show you some of the things that I have loved using & doing throughout February. First, I will write about my beauty-related favourites and in the end, you can read more about lifestyle-related things that I’ve loved this month.
Catrice Matt Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is perfect for everyday make-up! I mostly use the second colour from the left at the bottom row – I feel like that colour looks really natural on me and also suits my skin tone. What I also really like about this palette is that all of the colours are matt – it’s so hard to find an eyeshadow palette without glittery eyeshadows!
Catrice Prime & Fine
This powder is great if your skin tends to get shiny throughout the day. I bought it at the beginning of the month just to try it, and now I use it every single day, because it has helped so much to mattify my skin. Veeery useful!
NYX Eyebrow Mascara
If you need an eyebrow gel to keep your eyebrows in place, this tinted brow mascara will do the work! It does a great job and isn’t as expensive as other eyebrow gels – it only costs about 10€.
In winter, my hands get super super dry – it actually hurts everytime I need to wash my hands or stretch my fingers! The hand creams you see in the picture above have really helped to reduce the dry-ness. Especially the one by The Body Shop has saved my hands throughout extra cold New York days.
Schwarzkopf got2be Dry Shampoo
Normally, I only use baby powder if I don’t have time to wash my hair but I got this dry shampoo in a goodie bag last weekend, and it works so so well!! I am really impressed! Especially because the scent is really okay and fresh – normally, the scent of dry shampoo gives me a headache! Also, it doesn’t leave any white spots in my hair, so I will probably start buying this product after this little bottle gets empty 🙂
Now on to the lifestyle-related favourites: I started doing ballett again this month! I used to dance when I was about 8 years old and I also did jazz dance for 4 years as a teenager. I am not quite sure why I stopped, because I absolutely love dancing – it’s one of my biggest passions!
So now I am starting with the basics again. It’s quite hard and a bit frustrating because I have to re-learn everything again, and also – I am reeeeally not good! Haha But it’s so much fun, I enjoy it a lot and I already look forward to my next ballet class. I want to keep practicing and work hard, so I will get better and better each week! 🙂
Rupi Kaur Poems
I don’t read poems that often, but I recently discovered Rupi Kaur and her book Milk and Honey and I am so in love! Here are some of my favourite poems of hers which I found on Pinterest:
I loved the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack, and I am also a huge fan of Dua Lipa at the moment – I would love to see her live and meet her in person! I am also going to the Chainsmokers concert in Haus am Kaibling on March 2nd, which I am really excited for.
You can find some of my favourite songs this month in this Spotify playlist.
I hope you enjoyed my favourites this month.
Much love, Chris
