Fashion week is a lot of fun but it’s also hard work and late nights so when I headed to Copenhagen in the beginning of February for 3 days of fashion I took some time off in-between shows and meetings – and spoiled myself with a treatment at Complete Me. Usually I always go for the deep cleansing facials but the late nights, all the running from show to show and too many hours in front of the laptop started to show on my skin so this time I decided to go for a lifting and brightening facial with immediate effect.
After 45 minutes of deep tissue face massage (ouch), fruit acid and beautifying Skin Regimen products from Comfort Zone my skin was reborn. It was like a face lift without the botox. The moment of truth came halfway into the treatment when I was given a mirror to compare the side of my face that had just gone through the rather painful deep tissue massage with the other side that still had it to come. The difference was clear. My skin was visible lifted and suddenly the pain was the last thing on my mind.
I ended up indulging myself and my skin with a few of the Comfort Zone products used in the facial. The Duo Cleanser, which works as both a cleanser and a toner, the Juvenate-Pro Booster, which protects and smoothens the skin, the Hydra-Pro Cream Gel, which is perfect for dealing with the first signs of aging and finally the Night Renewer, which is not a night cream but a rinse-off peeling gel-mask that works renewing miracles on the skin.
You know where to find me the next time I’m in Copenhagen….

I’m super excited about the coming Proenza Schouler x MAC collection, which will hit stores in April. Definitely one of the best collaborations this year. The makeup itself is quite simple and very true to the always laid-back look of the Proenza Schouler girl but the packaging is as irresistible as anything else Proenza Schouler. I read somewhere that the ombre packaging is inspired by a previous collection – I’m guessing SS10.
With Peter Pilotto for Target, Ostwald Helgason for Aldo, Sophia Webster for J.Crew and Riccardo Tisci for Nike, 2014 is really an exciting year for designer collaborations. We have rounded up 11 of the best over at LUELLE (and that’s your cue to check it out).
I don’t know about you but I always do my own nails. In fact I’ve only been spoiled with a proffesionally manicure twice in my life. Sadly this has not turned me into an expert at painting my own nails and I always mess up. A few months ago I was on a shoot and for my nails the makeup-artist used the Express Drying Oil from Sephora to make the polish dry faster. All it takes is 1 minute and you’re good to go! One drop for each nail.
Makeup-artists always have lots of tips up their sleeves and Marie is one of my favorites. Luckily for all of us she just started blogging and she’s happy to share her knowledge. So there you go, another beauty blog to add to your daily readings. Enter her beautiful world on Marieandthemakeup.com.
This is what makes my lips survive the colder months without getting dry and chapped. I use the Lip Balm during the day and the Lip Cure before I got to bed in the night. The Lip Balm is a favorite amongst makeup-artists and the last three I’ve been working with all used it. I take that as a good sign. Remember to apply it with a cotton swap to avoid bacteria from spreading.
And speaking of Tromborg. Make sure to enter the giveaway! Two days left…
