Love & Starbursts

Beauty | 6.9.2014 | Katja Kokko


Opening my eyes this morning, I felt the day was going to be magical. One of my dearest friends is getting married, you see. Just typing that gets me emotional. We were decorating the venue in Suomenlinna until late in the evening last night, and just imagining seeing all that beauty on our arrival today has me breaking out with goose bumps. The magic is almost palpable.

It will doubtless be one of the most beautiful weddings that I’ve ever attended; besides the perfect surroundings and the promising weather forecast, there’s the hundred or so friends in attendance, celebrating the happy couple. Got to love parties that bring everyone together.


To balance out my understated outfit, I booked an appointment to get my hair done, in what I hope will be a wild mass of curls. I’ve gone for a nude eye makeup, since I’ll doubtless be shedding a tear or two, and will instead make my skin the main focus. Juice Beauty’s CC-cream in Warm Glow, Zuii’s Peach blush, and Diamond Sparkle Blush in the same color, will give my skin the perfect glow. For highlighting, I’ll be using the newest item in my makeup collection.


Kjaer Weis’s Radiance Highlighter is the brand’s newest product, and has received such hype that I had to get it. It is a cream highlighter in the most perfect luminizing color. The hint of cold pink that you can see in the picture is nowhere to be seen once applied to the skin.

The formula is spot-on; not too greasy and therefore easy to apply on top of your foundation without messing up your base. The highlighter is best applied to the tops of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, just above the start of your eyebrows, the chin, the curve of your cupid’s brow, and just under the center of your lower lip. Rule of thumb: less is more.

Kjaer Weis’s products are made all the more brilliant by the ingenious refillable packaging. The metal case makes it a luxury item, but also ensures high-quality and durability. And with the refill option, there is no need to re-purchase it every time, making the products quite affordable.

It seems I’m about to be late for my appointment with the hairdresser, so I wish you lots of love and starbursts for the weekend!
