A England “Sleeping Palace”

Todays nails is a brownish-purplish-greyish autumnal dream with a soft holographic gleam. Sleeping Palace from A England is incredibly beautiful to look at.. once you’ve mastered the freaky formula! It’s thick and doesn’t smooth out by itself at all (not sticky/stringy/goopy at all, it’s just like painting nails with water based wall paint!) so using too much or too little polish on the brush creates quite a mess. Oh well, it’s not patchy looking once on the nail though, so it looks a lot better than it feels. Maybe it would be better after a few drops of thinner..

Bought through Nailmail but here’s a list of stockists aswell.

By the way, Swedish readers! I’ve been writing most of my posts in English lately just because it’s a lot more comfortable to skip all the translating business, is it a bad thing? Let me know if you think it’s a problem, if you don’t care, or if you even think that it’s better this way!

Nude Creme

I’ve been using this red creme blush from Illamasqua called Devour loads lately, it’s hideously pigmented so using too much looks super freaky but sheered out it gives a very delicate skin brightening flush.

Another product that I’ve rediscovered is Nude Creme lipstick from Milani, a light peachy pink that’s exactly as light as I can go without looking drained of colour. Look it up if you are fair and find that nudes make you look sick!

Marie Antoinette must have had bad teeth.. Halloween makeup look

I can’t imagine the real Marie Antoinette with nice teeth and fresh skin. I mean, the 1700′s was probably the most hideous time in history when it comes to hygiene and beauty. Therefore I’m recreating (with my own twist) this fabulously hideous 1700′s makeup look that Karins Konstgrepp did a while ago. I totally adore that freaky look, it’s one of my favourite makeup tutorials ever. See it at the end of the post!

The product list is a bit whimsical because I added so many tiny dabs of different products in there, so I’m listing the products you can actually see. Use it as a guideline! Also, you should probably spend more than 40 seconds on your hair (me? lazy?) to make a higher hairdo with some curls falling down or so. It would be awesome.

Czar

Todays eye makeup is almost only pencils, I’ve been doing looks like this a lot lately! This sparkly nude Milani pencil (new favourite!) on the lid and inner corner, some darker shimmery definition along the lashlines and a contouring powder applied softly in the crease up towards the inner part of the brow.
