BONJOUR, MONSIEUR.

bored-to-death

I don’t usually wear bold colours, but it happens every now and then. When I’m in the mood to spice up my attire, I tend to steer towards the colour red. To compliment the look I always style it with some trusty silver jewellery. Personally, I try to avoid wearing golden pieces when rocking a red look, just because these two dominant colours look like a battle of attention paired together. Silver on the other hand, is a great fit. The metallic piece gives a certain sophistication to the look but not to the point where it’s trying to outshine the red shade. All in all, I like to think of it as a power couple in the jewellery world.

 A great tip is to keep your jewellery unobtrusive and clean so that it add a glimpse of attraction without drawing too much attention from the red.

LET YOUR SPARKLE OUT

AH-BON-FINALE JEW-2

Have you ever been told to never mix silver and golden jewellery together? Well, this rule is outdated. When it comes to jewellery, Candid That believes that there are no rules. Mix and match just how you like, why follow the rules when you can be creative and make it part of your own style? One of the great things about fashion is that you can choose to be the next trendsetter. Instead of waiting around for the next glossy magazine telling you what’s hot or not this season – you can be on top of the game and experiment it firsthand. Accessories has become such an essential part of every outfit and a simple piece of jewellery can instantly turn a look up side down.

A great tip from Candid That is to style your metals in a way so that it looks like it belongs together.

ONE HELL OF A SILVER LIGHTNING

JEW-INFO-2Here is a little silver inspiration to add to your look this season.

My love affair with jewellery has lasted for almost a decade, and I can often be spotted with a dainty silver necklace or hoop earrings at all times. Silver jewellery’s are definitely no stranger to me. With silver you’ll get two styling options. There’s nothing in between. If you’re a minimalistic person, keep it clean and simple with two to three pieces. If you want to spark it up a couple notches, layer the hell out of the silver pieces. In the first part of my jewellery lookbook series, you’ll get a glimpse of some of my current favourite silver sparks.

YSL STEP BY STEP: GLOW WITH TOUCHE ÉCLAT

Learn how to master the natural radiant look in this Step by Step tutorial. Below are 6 simple steps on how to achieve luminous skin with some of our makeup favourites from YSL Beauty.

 

STEP 1 – Touche Éclat Cushion Foundation:

The coverage of the cushion is lightweight in consistency, giving you a fresh dewy glow in just seconds. It is also buildable, but we think one layer cover up just enough dullness and at the same time let your freckles and beauty marks shine through.

YSL COLL 6

The cushion comes with a dual flocked sponge. The fluffy side of the applicator is used to swipe the formula on your face. Turn it around to the firm side and press the product in a tap-tap motion to sculpt your face. 

STEP 2 – Touche Éclat Star Collector (Limited Edition):

This little guy is perfect for on-the-go, last minute touch-ups, and travelling. Let’s draw a realistic scenario: You just got off work, but have a date or a party to attend right after. Pop the Touche Éclat highlighter underneath your eyes or on areas where you need some extra brightness; and you’ll transform into an effortless goddess in no time.

YSL COLL 5YSL COLL 1

Draw small vertical lines underneath your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, inner corner of the eyes, on your cheekbones and chin. After that, blend it out with your finger for a luminous finish.

 

STEP 3 – Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick:

I cannot get enough of multi-functional beauty products. This Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick double-serves as a lip balm and a creamy highlighter. I like to apply it on areas where I want more definition, such as my nose tip and above my cupid’s bow for fuller-looking lips.

YSL COLL 2

After highlighter, apply the Shine Oil-In-Stick on the high points of your face for some extra radiance. A girl can never have too much glow!

 

STEP 5 – Blush Volupté, I Have a Blush On You (Limited Edition):

To add warmth to the face I like to play around with the Blush Volupté palette in the shade peach. This is by far our favourite product from their entire line. It is one of the go-to products that we have been using for over three years. Highly recommended!

YSL COLL 3

Sweep your brush through the powder and apply it to your cheeks in a circular motion.

STEP 6 – Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick:

To colour everything in, I used the Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick in the shade 28, which has been our favourite lipstick this month. It is smooth, creamy, and easy to apply on.

mwuah!

FINALE LOOK:

 Voila! A luminous dewy look for any occasion. I sparked it up with some mini stars on my cheeks for a night-out look.

I hope you liked the step by step tutorial and learned a thing or two. Kisses!

LATELY ON THE GRAM: WINTERVENTION IN CAIRNS

DAY-1-CAIRN-COLL-1

⌗  T R O P I C A L   G E T A W A Y  ⌗

The winter weather is slowly sneaking up on us here in Australia. It is kind of funny considering we left the endless cold in Norway for everlasting sunshine in Sydney. But, seasons come and seasons go wherever you are in the world. Fortunately, Alexandra and I planned a tropical get-away to Cairns with Accor Hotels. In four days we experienced the Great Barrier Reef, sailed in tropical North Queensland, hiked in the rain forest and cuddled with koalas! This trip was one for the books.

Have a look at some snap shots from our grams, xx.

Alex is wearing White Tassel Swimsuit, (similars: Plunge / Skinny Strap / Frill Swimsuit), White Frill Bodysuit  (similar: Frill Playsuit, Frill Blouse)

۞ Day One Highlights ۞

The first day in North Queensland was pretty packed. As if we were not worried enough to arrive in time at the airport for our Jetstar flight to depart at 6 am, we also pulled an all-nighter. The day started with a yummy lunch at the hotel before visiting Pullman Reef Hotel Casino’s own wildlife dome. How many hotels can say they have their own rainforest inside their hotel? Here we went zip-lining, and cuddled a koala before we spent the rest of the day on a magical secluded sand cay. To top it off, we went on a helicopter ride over the Great Barrier Reef.

۞ Day Two Highlights ۞

Dreamtime walks in the tropical rain forest at Mossman Gorge. Here we received a guided tour around the rainforest by an aboriginal, was part of a smoking ritual and learned a bit of the language. Later in the evening, we checked into the Pullman Sea Temple Resort in Port Douglas. For lunch we had a delicious seafood feast and ended the day with relaxing spa treatments and cocktails by the pool.

۞ Day Three Highlights ۞

A fun day exploring Low Isles on Sailaway Port Douglas sailing boat. The best part was sunbathing and snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef amongst colorful fishes.

۞ Day Four Highlights ۞

The Reef House Palm Cove is the definition of home. Our last day was spent chilling with cocktails by the pool, sunbathing in the hammock and bike around the beautiful coastline of Palm Cove.

Thank you, Accor Hotels & Tropical North Queensland for a fun Wintervention trip and the unforgettable memories!

Stay tuned for the next one x
