Jag badade tidigare idag i bilder på Rodartes vår/sommarvisning för 2014 där modellerna bar en eyeliner som lite svalt letat sig ner till undre fransradens ytterkant för att mötas med den övre i en linervinge. Detta till en makeup som i övrigt sjunger ljuvt av sent 60tal/tidigt 70, dockslät fräsch hy och aprikosa toner på läppar och mejslade kinder. Det hela är otroligt snyggt, kika på bilderna här!

I min makeup plockade jag upp tekniken med eyeliner på undre fransraden, jag har nämligen fipplat runt den här eyelinern från KIKO i veckor nu så det var verkligen dags att prova den, och jag bytte ut den aprikosa läppen mot ett läppbalsam som endast framhäver min naturliga läppfärg. SEN kan vi ju passa på att nämna hur snygg den här foundationen är på huden, eller hur? Alltså jag dör. Den framhäver inte en enda por eller fnasighet, ren HD-perfektion.

 

Earlier today I bathed in pictures from the Rodarte spring/summer 2014 show where the models wore an eyeliner that in a relaxed way found its way to the outer corner of the bottom lashline, and met with the upper liner in a wing. The rest of the makeup sings with late 60′s/early 70, fresh doll skin and apricot tones on lips and sculpted cheeks. The entire thing is so lovely, check the pictures out here!

In my makeup look I picked up the technique with eyeliner on the lower lashline, I’ve had this KIKO eyeliner for weeks now so it was time to try it on, and I exchanged the apricot lip for a lipbalm that only enhances my natural lip colour. AND THEN we have to talk about how nice this foundation looks on the skin, right? I’m dying over here. It doesn’t enhance a single pore or flake, pure HD perfection.

Fire Red

Todays look! Nothing on my eyes, just a strong brow and bright orange red lips that match my nails. I’m trying out the CND Vinylux nail polishes that are supposed to wear for 7 days without damage, we’ll see how it works or if I’ll get tired of it before it starts looking crappy!

Also I just found the perfect eyebrow match for my new hair, I’m layering Peach Leopard Bronzer from Too Faced on top of my old brow powders. As the hair is a bit lighter than it was before the brows stand out more with my old semi-dark colour, but I really like the lighter hair/darker brows kind of thing.

Cherry Red

I’ve been wearing this KIKO Cosmetics lipstick almost every day since it arrived. I’m loving it! It’s kind of a muted red, the name makes it sound a lot brighter than it is. A classic cool red with some kind of dirty undertone, it’s a bit vampy yet it doesn’t need a lot of work to look good. Wears for hours once applied and turns into a true rockstar stain when really worn in. It can handle a night out without touch ups, eeey!

These two looks below were worn at different times, but I’m wearing the exact same things on my face. Hello basic face look.
