OKEY, so it's been a while since my last beauty post! Beauty is something that I actually do care a lot about, just not in a "let me show you 10 flawless makeup looks in 5 minuttes" on youtube kind of way. I probably won't do makeup videoes, ha ha. My passion is more about finding products that work! ✌I have very oily skin, big pores and kind of a rough texture, so I need products that will help me stay matte thoughout the day, make my pores disappear a little bit and of course a silky smooth finish.
For years I only wore pressed powders on my skin, because it was so oily. I thought that powder was the only thing that would stop the shine, and eeeeevery foundation that I tried just ended up in my fine lines and pores. I think it was last summer, when I was in Copenhagen with Hanne, I just stopped by a NARS shop and explained how my skin was like and what I needed from my products. The SA tested some products on me, and for the first time I actually found a liquid foundation that stayed in place, kept my skin matte and just... worked. That's when I realized that it all comes down to the pairing of the primer and the foundation! For years I thought that any primer worked with any foundation.. Well, that's not the case AT ALL. I actually tried the NARS foundation with a primer I had at home once I had used up the one I bought and the foundation acted completely different on my skin.. So, since they don't carry NARS in Norway (YET, it's coming, its coming!! 🎉) I had to find myself a couple of favourites I could actually get in store here in Norway!
