Bronze

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.

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.

Nudie

Todays makeup turned out to be some kind of classic wedding-y Victorias Secret look. Glowy bronzed skin and a soft shimmery smokey eye with a defined crease, topped with glossy neutral lips.

The eyeshadows that I used are a bunch from the Viva la Diva Nudie eyeshadow palette, all applied without a primer!

Skyfall

I’ve seen sooooo many people over the last few days who wore Skyfall from Viva la Diva on their lips, so I just had to dig my tube out and wear it! It’s a beautiful dark pink, and I bumped the purple undertones a little extra with Boost lipgloss from Illamasqua.
