Crazy Lazy

I love having fun eye pencils easily accessible on my makeup table, even when I do my makeup in a rush I can just pick a fun colour instead of a brown or black, it looks ten times as fun but it’s the exact same application as if it was a neutral shade. Today I went all in and paired this bright pale turquoise pencil with cobalt blue mascara, 100% tropical!

Mighty Evil One

I’ve thought a lot about the combo green/purple lately, so I went all in with it. Let’s break it down a bit.

On my top and bottom lids I’m wearing ColourPop Cosmetics Bae, a eggplant colour with turquoise sparkle. The outer corner + lower lashline is defined with Pumpkin & Poppy Mighty Evil One which is the same eggplant shade but is a tad darker and more matte. The sparkle in Bae matches perrrrfectly with the Milani Aqua pencil so I applied that on the lashlines and outer part of the waterline, fading into Make Up Store Tropical. MaddStyle Cosmetics Snot Face is my inner corner pop of green.

Soft Cerise

Såhär har jag sett ut på sistone, halva tiden med färgstarka läppstift som här och halva tiden utan ens det, bara den mjuka bronsiga basen och inget mer. Ögonmakeup kommer och går för mig ibland älskar jag det och ibland kan jag inte ens tvinga mig själv att orka.

Läppstiftet är från Viva la Divas nya läppstiftslinje Matte Lips, fem nyanser av tunna mjuka läppisar med mycket tryck i färgen. Jag gillar inte neutrala rosa läppar på mig själv så denna vid namn Soft Cerise är perfekt, helt klart mjukare än gemene knallrosa men fortfarande färgglad.

Och öh just det, jag har dängt på tre lager brun utan sol (Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tanning Moisturiser, jag blev inte ens orange!!) så jag har mer färg än någonsin, dvs uppnått nyansen av gemene svenne i maj. Det är så tydligt hur man kan flexa med makeupen beroende på “grundfärgen”, nu är jag t.ex. sjukt sugen på de där guldnyanserna som vanligtvis blir kissfärgade på mig. Kul grej ändå!

 

This is what my face has looked like lately, half the time with a bright lipstick like this and half the time even without that, just the smooth bronzed base by itself. Eye makeup comes and goes for me, sometimes I’m nuts about it and sometimes I can’t even force myself to bother.

This lipstick is from the new Viva la Diva line called Matte Lips, five different shades with a thin smooth formula that gives a nice punch of colour. I don’t like neutral pink shades on myself so this one called Soft Cerise is perfect, more muted than your average hot pink but still bright and happy.

Oh uh yeah, by the way, I have slapped on three coats of self tanner (Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tanning Moisturiser, it didn’t even turn me orange!!) so I have more colour than ever, in other words I have the same colour as any other Swede in May. It gets so obvious how much you can flex the makeup depending on your “base colour”, now I’m more into the golden shades that usually turn pee coloured on me. Fun times!

Honest Politician

Today I’m wearing the cream blush that I wrote a post about yesterday, I love the bare faced feeling it gives. I’m so glad I found a shade that works this well on my skintone, it’s going to be a long time favourite, I can tell already. The lipstick I’m wearing will also be reviewed soon, it’s another Lipstick Queen product that I’m very fond of. Stay tuned for that!

The eye look is really simple with some brow pomade as an eyeliner, thick black top lashes and a dab of dark red mascara on the bottom lashes.

Purple Blaze

I’ve worn this eye pencil a lot lately and every time loads of people ask me what it is. NYX Slide-On Pencil in Purple Blaze is the answer! One lady told me how happy she was to see a colour like this because it reminded her of what she loved to wear in the eighties. So sweet!

Today I paired this bright metallic blurple (blue/purple, best word fuse ever) with apricot on my cheeks and lips. They really enhance each other beautifully!
