Garnet

Yesterday my hair got a redo, the roots got their dark brown back and the coppery ends turned a lot redder than before. It feels a bit sci fi, loving it! Thanks to Roger at Cybtekk as usual. :) When doing my makeup this morning I realized that Garnet eyeshadow from the LORAC PRO Palette matches my hair so I went for it! The crease is deepened with Deep Purple and I have Gold dabbed on the center of the lid.

Don’t even mention the bad pictures, they’re taken both after dark and a day at work. Swedish problems in a nutshell – missing daylight entirely because you’re working indoors. Haha.

2014 in makeup – a look from each month

I saw Frida Skoglund post a look from each month of 2014, so I thought I should do the same! Click the name of the month to find the blog post about the look.

And oh, June is missing! I barely wore makeup during the summer so there were no makeup looks posted in June. A good thing in a way!

Peach Kiss

When reviewing the Becca Ultimate Crème Eyeliners I mentioned how gorgeous ashy green Neo Classic is paired with peachy tones, so here’s an example of it! I love how the liner basically dead on matches my diffuse greyish greenish eye colour. It’s a super wearable shade and therefore my go-to eyeliner when black, brown or grey doesn’t feel interesting enough.

And oh, the hair! I’ve used the Maria Nila Colour Refresh hair mask in Pink Pop over my coppery parts! I use Bright Copper most of the time to enhance my actual colour but I really like the pink too, it cools the tone down and turns it red for a few washes. I love switching my colour up like this! Available at Swedish website Eleven (ships within Europe if I’m not mistaken)

Faces that never made it past Instagram

Some looks I neither mange nor have the time to get good pictures of, so they end up as grainy Instagram material (@killercolours). Let’s take a look at some random stuff from about August until now!
