When travelling I always try to pack light makeup wise; opting for handy eyeshadow palettes to ensure I can create various looks without having to take a massive collection of beauty products with me. For my recent trip to Copenhagen I decided to take my Urban Decay Ammo Eyeshadow Palette. It contains a great mix of shades which means you can use it for a natural look or dramatic smokey eye. Here some makeup up looks that I created with the Urban Decay Ammo palette for my Copenhagen nights out.

Which look is your favourite?
I already blogged a little while back about where to eat when in Copenhagen (link) but this city is also filled with really fun places to go out! Turns out the Danish love a good cocktail as there are many amazing cocktail bars scattered around the city. Here a quick list of the bars and clubs to visit when in Copenhagen.
Nights out in Copenhagen
Ruby’s - voted one of the best cocktail bars in Copenhagen. Posh but cosy. There are several rooms and the bartender can whip you up any cocktail you like – we got some creations that weren’t even on the menu after he asked us what kind of drinks we liked!
Madam Chu’s - Lounge-y cocktail bar
The Jane - Mad Men style bar + it has a fireplace!
1105 – Cocktail Bar (30+ crowds, sophisticated and great cocktails)
Fortunen - young, fun and casual bar. No cocktails, just music and good times!
K-Bar - Fancy a martini? Go here.
Union Bar - The most exclusive and hard to find bar in Copenhagen. It attracts a young, urban crowd plus it’s also a skip and a hop to Simons; the nightclub in Copenhagen.
In the hipster Meat Packing district it’s worth checking out Karriere, Mesteren & Lærlingen and Jolene.
