Poison Plum

Jag hittade min illblå mascara från IsaDora igår! Jippi! Något som har en så stark 80talsvibb kan kräva lite tankeverksamhet för att se modern ut, jag gillar att använda den i en harmoniserande färgglad look (typ som denna) eller mot en enkel svart eyeliner, och lämna hud, kinder och bryn mjuka och naturliga. Lämna det skimriga rosa läppstiftet på hyllan den dagen om du inte är sugen på den fullständiga Girls Just Wanna Have Fun-looken.

Yesterday I found my bright blue IsaDora mascara! Yay! Something with this much of an 80′s vibe often needs a little thought to look modern, I like using it in a bright colour harmony (like this one) or against a simple black liner, leaving skin, cheeks and brows very soft and natural. Leave the shimmery pink lipstick on the shelf that day if you’re not going for the full Girls Just Wanna Have Fun look.

Gunsmoke

Here’s my new years makeup, a messy sparkly smokey eye with natural skin and lips! I had some kind of Velvet Goldmine glam rock vibe going, I feel like it’s easier to “get away” with heavy glitter if it’s worn messy. The glitter that I used is quite rough, it’s dark grey Gunsmoke from Lit Cosmetics in cut #3, their glitters are graded on how fine the particles are and #2 is the standard cut, so the #3 has a lovely glam rock feel!

Happy new year friends, I hope you have a wonderful evening!

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?

Ella

Såhar blev min julmakeup! Jag bar snarare plommon-rosa-rött än klarrött i år på naglar och läppar pga en blommig kimono i den färgskalan. Känns högtidligt men ändå oväntat! På ögonen körde jag än en gång The Truth-paletten från BareMinerals, pimpad med lite guldskimmer samt nude-guldigt glitter i inre ögonvrån. Har även en grej för lätt mineralfoundationbas med Lyster Cream Bronzer över för tillfället, det blir naturligt och glowigt utan att se solbränt ut.

This is my christmas eve makeup! I wore more of a plummy-pinky-red than a classic red on nails and lips this year because of a floral kimono in that colour scheme. Feels festive and still a bit unusual! On my eyes I once again wore The Truth palette from BareMinerals with some gold shimmer and a golden nude glitter on my inner corners. I’ve also got a thing for light mineral foundation bases with Lyster Cream Bronzer on top right now, it looks really natural and glowy without looking tanned.

Cyber Kiss

Sometimes the lipstick is the key, kinda. The first picture below is how my makeup started out today, I wore a thin natural base, glowy cheeks and defined eyes + brows and left my lips bare. Worn with my hair down and a slimmed turtleneck I had the relaxed Warhol VS. Beyoncé Countdown look DOWN. Later I smacked a hot pink lipstick on (otherwise I feel drained of colour in that hysterical leo jacket) which changed the look completely!
