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.

I hope you’ve had a great week and will have a nice weekend! We’re going quickly up to Sweden but will be back already on Tuesday. I’m really looking forward to come home even if it’s just for a short visit. ❤

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! ❤

Too Funky

The weather here in Florence been so grey and rainy lately that I felt that I needed to cheer up a bit with a fun colorful halo makeup look. I mainly used colors in purple, pink and gold. This could be an idea for Valentines Day or for a fun night out. In this look I also tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, shade Amber Gold, which is a lovely golden highlighter that reflects a bit of pink. I really love this Glow Kit, I’ve been using it frequently.

Under the light

Me and my family just came back to Italy after one lovely week in Sweden. We were so lucky with the weather this time. We had around 20-25 degrees and sun every day! It was actually much better weather there than here in Italy.

Lately I haven’t been able to do much makeup and I feel that I really miss it! Tomorrow I’ll be working in a pharmacy outside of Florence where I’ll be the beauty consultant for the Italian brand Euphidra. It’ll be very fun to meet, do consultency and do the makeup on their clients. It always gives me such positive energy and I really love it. So I hope it’ll be a productive and creative day.

This makeup that I show you today is completely made using the fantastic eyeshadows from Nabla Cosmetics. Here I’ve also used my new eyeshadow Fahrenheit as a transition color above the crease. On the pictures you can see how soft and nice it gets when you blend it out. It doens’t even seem to be a darkred color like this.

I hope all of you are great and that you’re having  a wonderful spring week.
