L.A. Girl 3D “Brilliant Blue”

Here’s a nail polish that I worn long ago but never posted pictures of, Brilliant Blue from the L.A. Girl 3D line! It’s a deep blue jelly with galaxy-like sparkle, the prismatic glitters (which aren’t showing up very well in pictures) gives it a deep rainbow gleam! A fantastic polish. Bought from Cherry Culture.

Gunsmoke

Here’s my new years makeup, a messy sparkly smokey eye with natural skin and lips! I had some kind of Velvet Goldmine glam rock vibe going, I feel like it’s easier to “get away” with heavy glitter if it’s worn messy. The glitter that I used is quite rough, it’s dark grey Gunsmoke from Lit Cosmetics in cut #3, their glitters are graded on how fine the particles are and #2 is the standard cut, so the #3 has a lovely glam rock feel!

Happy new year friends, I hope you have a wonderful evening!

The smallest difference can change a look completely

This year I’ve been all about tweaking a simple look into looking completely different each time, I’ve played a lot with structures (shiny/glossy/matte etc), removing one component of the makeup and amping another one up, enhancing my warm or cool undertones with certain colour schemes, using the same product but with different application methods.. You know the drill!

What have been your beauty interest this year?

Såhar blev min julmakeup! Jag bar snarare plommon-rosa-rött än klarrött i år på naglar och läppar pga en blommig kimono i den färgskalan. Känns högtidligt men ändå oväntat! På ögonen körde jag än en gång The Truth-paletten från BareMinerals, pimpad med lite guldskimmer samt nude-guldigt glitter i inre ögonvrån. Har även en grej för lätt mineralfoundationbas med Lyster Cream Bronzer över för tillfället, det blir naturligt och glowigt utan att se solbränt ut.

This is my christmas eve makeup! I wore more of a plummy-pinky-red than a classic red on nails and lips this year because of a floral kimono in that colour scheme. Feels festive and still a bit unusual! On my eyes I once again wore The Truth palette from BareMinerals with some gold shimmer and a golden nude glitter on my inner corners. I’ve also got a thing for light mineral foundation bases with Lyster Cream Bronzer on top right now, it looks really natural and glowy without looking tanned.
