Sweet Poison

Efter att ha frågat er om inspiration på Facebook så fick jag nyckelordet “sweet poison” från en av er, och det tyckte jag var spännande! Tänkte mig direkt en mjuk kalltonad makeup med någon elektriskt giftig färg, och så blev det. Älskar lila skuggan 9 från MUA!


After asking you for inspiration on Facebook I got the interesting keyword “sweet poison” from one of you. I came to think of a soft cool toned makeup with some electric poisonous colour, and that’s what I went for. I love the purple shadow 9 from MUA!

    Dear Viola,

    your blog is f****** awesome!!! I don’t even use makeup or anything, but your blog is addictive.

    I know you are a Beauty blogger…but still – I also love those few photos about your clothes etc.

    I have one wish: Could you take more photos about your hair. I see you have bangs, but still sometimes you ‘hide’ it very well. It would be super interesting to see better photos about your hair and hear your thoughts about it and how you do your hair :)

    Jättesnyggt :) Viola, kan du tipsa om några färger från MUA?

    har du hört?

    “import och försäljning inom EU av djurtestade kosmetikaprodukter och -ingredienser kommer totalförbjudas från och med 11 mars 2013″

    Hoppas det stämmer!! :DD

    What a gorgeous look, Viola! Love how vibrant the purple is and that you’ve blended it so delicately to make this a totally wearable look. The soft pink blush and lipstick complement the eyes so well :)

    Tack för en helt underbar och inspirerande blogg! Jag undrar om du tar emot privatpersoner som vill fixa till naglar,bryn, eller som helt enkelt vill ha en fin make till tex bröllop?

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!
