I'm a passionate makeup blogger. In my blog I mostly share my makeup looks but I also write and give tips about products that I like and use. Makeup and beauty has become one of my biggest passions.

New Products from EuPhidra

For you that don’t know and have never heard about the Italian cosmetic brand called Euphidra I can tell you that this brand got created in 1999 by the Italian pharmaceutical company called Zeta Farmaceutici. If you’re intrested to know more about them you can visit their website here. Their products are only sold through pharmacies.

They recently updated their whole makeup line and in this post I’ll show you a few of the new products; eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks. They got many more products but I don’t have the possibility to show everything. However I’m very glad to sometimes work with them, specially now when everything is new. They got a whole range of other products such as facial creams, facial cleansers etc…the list is long and I can really recommend their products. They got something for all ages, different skintypes and most importantly all their products are produced in Italy in their pharmaceutical laboratory with safe ingredients that works perfectly also on who has very vulnerable and sensitive skin.


Here are the new eyeshadows. All of them are satinated, they are very soft and easy to work with and blends perfectly. With an eyeprimer underneath they’re very long lasting.


The new lipsticks are amazing, everything from the shades to how they last for hours without drying out the lips. They come in four shiny shades and four matte shades. My absolute favorite for the moment is the number RS01. I’ve been using it frequently since over a month now. Here under you can see the swatches in sunlight and daylight.


I also really like the new blushes they made. They come in three different shades and sometimes I also like to use them in the eyemakeup. All of them are matte and blends out great over the cheeks giving them a soft healthy look.


With these new products I created the look you see here under. On the lips I used the shiny lisptick number RS03. The black eyeliner is done using Euphidra’s waterproof black eyepencil number EA01.


Have a wonderful week now!!! ❤

Too Faced – Natural Matte Look

This Natural Matte eyeshadow palette from Too Faced has been one of those palettes I’ve been looking at for a long time without purchase, but when the right occasion showed up I just had to buy it. It’s one of those perfect ”easy to go” everyday palettes, and it hasn’t let me down. I really like it and use it a lot. The shadows are very soft with a good pigmentation and very blendable. With the right primer under they last without problem the whole day.

Have a wonderful weekend now!!! Here in Florence it just started to rain.

Here’s one look a created a while ago using this eyeshadow palette. I combined it with a strong matte lip using one of Euphidra’s new lipsticks.

Easter Makeup 2017

We started with some small Easter celebrations already this morning. I had hidden the childrens Easter eggs together with a present, so we had a small Easter egg hunt after breakfast this morning. The children were so excited and happy! Then what I love about them is that they show their appreciation. I never want them to take anything for granted and I think they’ve started to understand what I mean now. ❤

For this Easter I wanted a fresh colorful makeup and this is the result. I used a soft pink lipstick to this look with a touch of glitter to the lower central lip, (which was more for the photo, I would never eat with glitter on my lips 😉 ). The lipstick comes from Euphidra, the brand I’m promoting and doing makeup for around different pharmacies here in Florence. It’s from their new serie that recently launched. I’m so exited because the quality and the shades are amazing. As soon as I’ll have the time I’m going to do a post showing you all their new lipsticks.

I want to wish you a fantastic Easter weekend and send you all lots of love! 🐣🐰

Pink Spring

Here in Florence it’s been a few days with incredibly warm weather for the season. I think we had 24 degrees yesterday and close to that also today. It’s really wonderful and all the trees and flowers are starting to bloom out really fast now. The sunsets at night are spectacular and I get so inspired by all these wonderful colors.
My makeup inspiration of today’s look come from what nature offers right now, beautiful spring colors. Then Easter is coming up soon and I love to be colorful at this time of the year.

Options

Wow the weeks are going fast now! I ended last week with some work which always is really nice.
At the same time we had a long weekend since the school decided to do a strike on Friday. That’s Italy… Noone understands why, noone tells you and nothing ever changes…hahaha… Luckily I wasn’t working Friday so I could stay with my children.

So today’s look feels a bit more ”springy”. Light green shades mixed with earthy tones is always a happy mix. I added pink lips to this look to make it even brighter.

Have a wonderful happy week!!! ❤

Dubai

I hope you’ve had a really nice weekend! I’ve just been relaxing since it’s been raining almost the whole Saturday and Sunday. This new week started as the old one ended with rain! So now I really hope to see some sun tomorrow.
I’ve been preparing this look even though the light wasn’t on my side, it’s so frustrating when you’ve to take 300 pictures just to get 5 decent ones… Probably should get myself a ringlight, but I still prefer taking pictures in daylight. Sometimes I ask myself why I’m doing this, wasting hours on taking pictures, but when the passion is stronger than the common sense you just can’t stop yourself! 🙂

The look I created today is made with Huda Beauty’s Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Edition. The look is a bit more dramatic since I combined the eyemakeup with strong red lips. That’s how I wanted this look to be, but I’m sure it would look great also with a pair of nude lips.

Have a wonderful week now! ❤

Today is one of those days, that if you have the possibility, you just want to lock yourself inside, read a good book or watch a movie.

Huda Beauty – Textured Shadows Palette – Rose Gold Edition

One eyeshadow palette that has been on my mind for months now is the Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Edition. Finally about three weeks ago it came back in stock on Cultbeauty. It sold out as fast as it came in…which is kind of scary…:-) I was lucky though to get my hands on it this round! I can become slightly obsessed if I see an eyeshadow palette that I really want! It’s been a while since I had that feeling so getting this gorgeous palette really had my mood flying high up! Once arrived I felt like a child on Christmas Day… I’ve read lots of comments about this palette, both positive and negative, so I was really curious to find out my own opinion. I paid £56.00 for it which I think is a good price thinking about that you get 18 eyeshadows.

Many comments I’ve read about this palette have complained about the packaging, saying that it’s too simple and floppy. I insead find the packaging perfect! It’s practical and easy to use, really lightweighted, which is important when you work with makeup. This palette you can bring with you everywhere without problem. I hate too bulky makeup packaging. I’m a huge fan of the Z-palettes and this one is a similar version of them, just perfect.

The eyeshadows are spectacular!!! In this palette you find 18 ultra-versatile powder shadows; six ”3D Metals”, two ”Chromatic Pressed Pearls” and 10 ”Saturated Mattes”. They’re silky smooth, blendable, so pigmented, loooong lasting and the 3D Metals are creamy and should for best color payoff be applied with your fingers!
Two days ago at work I did my makeup using this palette at six in the morning and when I came back home at nine in the evening the eyemakeup was still as it was early that morning! That for me means everything! I’m in love with this palette!

After 30 minutes of taking photos of this palette I couldn’t keep my hands off the eyeshadows any longer. Here comes the swatches in sunlight and daylight.

What to say, this is exactly one of those palettes that I’ll use frequently and it’s already on my top three list of eyeshadow palettes! I love love love it! It makes me happy everytime I open it, and you can make endless amounts of makeup looks with this one, from the most neutral to the most dramatic! ❤

Just to show you really quickly how the eyeshadows turn out on the lid I created this simple makeup look yesterday using these eyeshadows:

 

True Love Asks for Nothing

For Valentine’s Day this year I suggest a shimmery halo makeup. Choose the color combination you like most and your eyes will look gorgeous. I tried this combination in brown and turquoise shades which isn’t that classic but the effect you get is amazing.

I want to wish you a fantastic Valentine’s Day with much love. Myself will work the whole day and spread love with my makeup brushes 😉 . I usually never celebrate Valentine’s Day since it’s too commercial for my taste. I like to be nice and show love everyday and not closing it in one day. But the meaning of Valentine’s Day is beautiful so enjoy it as much as you can!
