Welcome!

Välkomna till Killer Colours nya hem, Rodeo.net!

Bloggen är fortfarande lite under konstruktion, men nu är ni ju här. Har slängt in lite gamla blogginlägg (som av kodskäl ser lite skräpiga ut här och var, men ni fattar vinken) och en det-får-duga-header kommer upp nu i dagarna. Allt ska bli skitbra, men det tar kanske en vecka eller så. Ni får ursäkta’t helt enkelt! Tills vidare: stöter ni på problem eller konstigheter så säg till!

För er nya läsare följer här en liten presentation av mig.

Viola Holmgren heter jag, född och uppvuxen i Umeå men sedan ett par månader tillbaka bosatt i centrala Göteborg. 19 år gammal, frilansar lite diverse skönhet samt bloggar en himla massa. Är sedan 2008 inbiten skönhetsbloggare med fokus på färg och kreativitet, smäller i folk modet att ha lila läppstift på bröllopet eller att rocka den gröna ögonskuggan en tidig måndagmorgon. Ja, sådant blir jag glad av! Billiga bra produkter gillar jag, jag vet hur en studentplånbok kan knipa så jag snackar inte i er konkurs i onödan. Bara ibland. Nä, vi ska nog trivas!

Tills vidare, puss och kram!

 

Welcome to Killer Colours new home, Rodeo.net!

The blog is still under construction, but at least you’re here. I’ve re-posted some of my old blog posts here (which because of the code look a bit strange here and there, but you catch the drift) and a that’ll-do-kind-of-header will be up in the days. Everything will be awesome, but I guess it’ll take a week or so. You’ll have to excuse, basically! Until then: If you find any bugs or strange stuff, let me know!

For you readers who are new, here’s a short presentation of me.

My name is Viola Holmgren, born and raised in Umea, northern Sweden but recently moved down to central Gothenburg, Sweden. I’m 19 years old, do some freelancing on the beauty subject and I blog a lot. I’ve been a beauty blogger since 2008 with focus on colour and creativity, I work to give people the courage to wear purple lipstick on the wedding or rock the green eyeshadow on a monday morning. Those kind of things make me happy! I like cheap products, I know how a student wallet can ache, so I won’t talk you into bankrupcy often. Only sometimes. No seriously, I bet we’ll get along well!

Laters! xo

 

Viola, Killer Colours

    Hi Viola,
    I really do love your blog. It has inspired me since I started to read it almost a year ago. I have a little baby boy and once I get him sleep (like 5 minutes ago) I spend ‘my special time’ with your blog :) You have beautiful eye makeups and I’d like to be as talented as you’re but sometimes I get depressed ’cause you have the perfect eyeshape for the makeups (<3 your eyebrows) and I have deep set eyes (I see a hint of eyelid when my eye is open), small lids, green-brown eyes (almost yellow like a piss), pale skin and my eyelashes are straight and nondense. I have also pretty big space between my eyebrow and eye. I know you're busy, very busy – but it's possible to make a tutorial for deep set eyes?
    I also like eyelines – on other people!! My eyes it only makes smaller (and smaller).

    Have a nice …. night?? :)

    Kära Viola, jag måste tacka för den tutorial du länkade!
    Jag och min kille gick på halloweenfest som de två kostymklädda skeletteni gagas ‘born this way’-video, och vann första pris! (ett Xbox och hela konkarongen, riktigt fett om man får skryta lite haha.) Hade aldrig sett den videon om det inte varit för din blogg! :D Otroligt hajpad blev den looken, tips för den som ska klä ut sig i helgen :3

Glossy claws, purrty lips, serious eyebrows and a passion for beauty with brains.

My name is Viola Holmgren and I've been representing Swedish beauty bloggerism (yes. we're a cult) since 2008. I focus on cruelty free beauty and I love the feeling of finding cool products that have gone under the radar.

Makeup doesn't have rules. The only person who decides what's right or wrong and if you're wearing it or not is you, and that's where my job as a blogger comes in handy. Use my experience as a guide or an inspiration towards finding your own way.

And just to clarify, all reviews and opinions are my own, there is no evil baby demon on my left shoulder who is bribing, forcing or possessing me to write. Reviews are best written in honesty!
