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.

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!

The Dolce Vita

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have seen the exciting stuff that’s coming up, I’ve got a bunch of Charlotte Tilbury products swatched and ready, soon to be posted! Oohhh the makeup shivers. Let’s start it all with a makeup look including two of the products, ok? The rest comes soon!

So here I’m wearing K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, a pinky nude. GORGEOUS colour but formula wise quite standard. Not bad at all but not amazing. For £23 I want luxe!

Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita on the other hand.. An eyeshadow quad in champagne (prime), copper (enhance), gold (pop) and brown (smoke). JEBUS this is gorgeous! I wish the sparkle of the gold would pop in pictures as it does in reality.. I used the shadows “as intended” placement wise, but of course you can do anything you want with it.

Miel Doré

Here’s the exact type of look that I mentioned in the post about this lipstick! No pinky tones on the skin, eyes or lips, only this warm golden hue all over and soft blackened eye makeup.
