Cirque “Cerrillos”

Jag jobbar på med Cirque Heritage-lacken, nu kikar vi på Cerrillos tycker jag! En blåturkos som med den glödande finishen ser ut som Hawaiianska drömstränder. Jag gillar att det inte slår över i grönt, såhär starka turkosa nyanser tycker jag bäst om när de behåller den där friska blå tonen. Det är fint på fingrarna, men det är inget jämfört med hur mycket jag älskar det på tårna. Jag har burit det på tårna i ett par veckor nu och blir glad varje gång jag ser dem. Två lager lack räcker gott och väl för full täckning. Lista med ställen att shoppa finns här, för nu är kollektionen ute! Jippi!

I’ll keep working on the Cirque Heritage collection, let’s take a look at Cerrillos today! A blue toned turqoise that together with the glowing finish looks like dreamy Hawaiian beaches. I love that it doesn’t pull green, I really prefer when turqoise shades this bright keeps that fresh blue tone. It’s nice on the fingers, but it’s nothing compared to how much I love it on my toes. I’ve worn it for a couple of weeks now and I’m still happy every time I see my toes. Two coats was enough for full opacity. Check here for a list of stockists, the collection is out now! Yay!

New hair!

Roger at Cybtekk did it again! He lightened my hair a shade or two and dyed it in a coppery gold tone that fades down to bright coppery ends.

Fresh office look on Lina

Today I did a brightening business look on my model Lina Lundin who was filmed for an information video about brand development. I should have taken before pictures aswell, but these will have to do! She’s wearing a neutral, slightly shimmery eye with a defined crease, glowy cheeks, a matte highlighted T-zone and super glossy lips in a muted berry colour.
