Demon I am and flesh I peel
To see your skin turned inside out, ’cause
Gotta have you on my wall
Gotta have you on my wall, ’cause

I want your skulls
I need your skulls

Go to fatta.nu and support tougher laws on sexual violence in Sweden with an awesome totebag, sweatshirt or necklace.

Or buy a lovely necklace from FabulouslyFeminist on Etsy to show some vag pride?

 

No one is allowed to step on you for your gender or sexual identity. You are never too loud, you are never too much. Women before us fought for our rights which gave us what we have now, keep fighting for our and every unborn womans rights to live in a gender equal society. We are one!

The smallest difference can change a look completely

This year I’ve been all about tweaking a simple look into looking completely different each time, I’ve played a lot with structures (shiny/glossy/matte etc), removing one component of the makeup and amping another one up, enhancing my warm or cool undertones with certain colour schemes, using the same product but with different application methods.. You know the drill!

What have been your beauty interest this year?

Glossy claws, purrty lips, serious eyebrows and a passion for beauty with brains. Beauty blogger and MUA from Gothenburg, Sweden.

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!
