Rich & Famous

You know how it is, you sit down, smack a hysterical makeup on your face, take pictures, sit down to edit them and.. the laptop screen won’t cooperate. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes! Right now I’m stealing my boyfriends computer and praying to FSM that my laptop will work later.

So, todays look went batshit crazy and I’m actually liking it! Gold glitter, inky black lips and wild brows feels great after a long time without much makeup at all.

IsaDora Sugar Crush “Pool Crush”

Here’s what I’m wearing on my nails at the moment, Pool Crush from the IsaDora Sugar Crush line. Matte glitters that are gritty on the nails. I really love this line, and this bright blue shade is no exception! Two coats was needed for full opacity and it dried semi-quickly. Worn without topcoat for the gritty look.

My hair routine

Louise asked me to show a picture of my full hair as it always shows a little bit in pictures, so here it is! Or, as well as I was able to photograph it myself..

In these pictures it’s just air dried with no products which is how I mostly wear it, sometimes I run a little aloe vera gel through it to tame the frizz and define the curls. If it’s oily I use Lernberger Stafsing Dryclean dry shampoo.

I wash with LUSH Karma Komba and condition with Clearly Natural Essentials Natural Conditioner which is a great combo for my oily roots and dry ends. I always have a problem finding combinations that won’t make any of those problems worse, but this seems to work wonders!

The dye is a total mashup, the light ends are a mixture of last years bleach (I wore pale brown ashy hair back then), a warm non-permanent dye and this years summer sun. The overall warm colour is partly that non-permanent dye and some warm permenant dye for my roots. The simple tip: Go to Cybtekk, they’re the best.

Midnight Navy

Yesterdays makeup was a quick one with a dark metallic blue eyeliner from the IsaDora fall collection. There is a brush in the lid of the pot, I used it for the wings and it actually worked quite well! It’s really really waterproof aswell, It’s even hard to wash off, so there will be no smudges with this one.
