Blood Orange

Här är mitt kalassmink! Ni får bara en bild idag, för med besök i hallen lyckades jag fixa brynen, fota sminket och välja + dra på mig strumpbyxor på under en minut, hann alltså inte med mer än ett fåtal bilder.

Läpparna går i (sparsamt applicerat) varmt orange för att colour-blocka mot min kornblå klänning (från ASOS, har visat den tidigare), kinderna plockade upp lite av persikotonen och ögonen är neutrala med en grånad brun i globlinjen för att undvika att helheten spårar ur. Brynen hade jag nog fyllt i lite om jag hade haft tid, men ljusa bryn e ju najs det med.

 

Here’s my party makeup! You only get one picture today, because with people standing in the hallway I managed to fix my brows, take pictures of the makeup and find a pair of tights to wear within less than a minute, so I only took a couple of pictures this time.

The lips are a reddish orange (lightly applied) to colour block against my klein blue dress (from ASOS, I’ve showed you this one earlier), cheeks picked that peachy tone up and the eyes are neutral with a grey brown in the crease to keep the look from going bananas. I would probably have filled my brows in if I had the time, but light brows aren’t too bad either.

Depend “313″

Idag bär jag det allra finaste lacket ur Depends sommarkollektion, ett mörklila med intensivt turkosgrönt skimmer/glitter. Två lager krävdes för perfektion. Och det är inte utan anledning jag sparat denna lackpärla till idag, för idag är min tjugoårsdag, hurra hurra hurra!

 

Today I’m wearing the prettiest of all the Depend summer collection polishes, a dark purple with an intense turquoise green shimmer/glitter. Two coats and it’s perfect. And there’s a reason why I’ve saved it until today, because today is my 20th birthday, hooray hooray hooray!

 

 

And here’s what I did 15 years ago!

Rose Garden

Igår hade jag en skitbra eyelinerdag. Precis sådär mjuk och kattig som jag ville ha den, för att inte tala om hundraprocentigt symmetrisk. Jag pratade med en vän om det under gårdagen, och vi kunde snabbt konstatera hur odödlig en perfekt eyeliner får en att känna sig. Visst är det så?

Sen har jag stött på ett gloss jag blev himla glad för, det är nämligen jättelikt ett jag hade för länge sedan som jag saknat en hel del. Plommonrosa och jelly-transparent. Min älskling är tillbaka!

 

Yesterday I had an awesome eyeliner day. Just as soft and catlike as I wanted it, not to mention the perfect symmetry. I talked to a friend about it and in a matter of seconds we could agree on how immortal a perfect eyeliner makes you feel. Don’t you think?

I also had the luck to find a gloss that I’m very happy for, it’s very similar to an old one that I had a long time ago which I’ve been missing a lot. Plum pink and jelly translucent. My sweetheart is back!

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.
