Enigma

Finally I’ve been able to create a look using only my eyeshadows from Make Up Store. I bought them this summer and I’ve been using them a lot, it’s just that I haven’t had the proper time to take pictures of how the makeup turn out using them. These warm shades are really classic and easy to wear. I matched the eyemakeup with a pair of red lips. December is a month where I think many of use like wearing red lipstick. Red lips looks also great, maybe even greater, with just a light eyemakeup. The version I did I would suggest as an evening makeup.

Now before Chrismas I’ve some new looks ready that I’ll show you in upcoming posts. Have a great start of the new week!

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion anti-aging. Highlight under the eyebrows with Make Up Store’s microshadow Vanilla.
  2. Blend in Make Up Store’s microshadow Enigma above the crease and blend outwards.
  3. Apply Make Up Store’s microshadow Fashion to the outer part of the mobile eyelid and blend up in the crease and slightely outwards.

Keep Dancing

I’ve always liked the combination of purple and orange shades in eye makeups. I’ve probably used it in many times but I never get tired of it. For me this is a great summer makeup that can be used both day and nighttime.
In this makeup I mixed both shimmery and matte eyeshadows.

Last week I finally ordered a new makeup palette that I can’t wait to get home and play with. Some of you may already have it, or for sure you’ve seen it in many makeup tutorials lately. I won’t tell you which one it is but as soon as I’ll have it I’ll post it here on the blog with swatches and information.

Summer Inspo

Här kommer en sommar inspirerad sminkning. Jag hade så bråttom när jag gjorde den att jag inte kommer ihåg produkterna jag använde.
Hoppas ni har en riktigt fin sommarvecka. I Florens är det fortfarande otroligt varm, nästan 40 grader varenda dag. Snart åker jag och barnen och svalkar oss i poolen.

Here comes a summer inspired makeup. I was in such a hurry while doing it that I don’t remember the products I used.
I hope you’re having a beautiful summer week. Here in Florence it’s still superhot, almost 40 degrees everyday. Me and my kids will soon go to the pool to cool down a bit.

Oggi vi mostro un trucco estivo. Ero in fretta quando l’ho fatto per cui non ricordo i prodotti usati.
Spero che stiate passando una bellissima settimana d’estate. Qui a Firenze il tempo è ancora caldissimo, quasi 40 gradi tutti i giorni. Tra poco porto i bambini con me in piscina per rinfrescarci un pò.

Mirror Mirror

Sedan i måndags är jag hemma sjukskriven. Halsen svullnade upp och jag fick hög feber i två dagar innan jag började pencillinkuren. Så nu måste jag ta penicillin i 10 dagar. Även min son har fått pencillin igen. Det är riktigt typiskt, precis när vi blivit friska faller det tillbaka igen. Men så otroligt ont och svullen som jag blev i halsen denna gång har jag bara upplevt en gång innan och det var för tre år sedan. Det är hemskt, man kan inte ens svälja utan att känna en enorm smärta.
Så sminkningar blir det inte alls dessa dagar. Istället bjuder jag på en sminkning jag gjorde för ett par veckor sedan som jag inte hunnit med att dela än. Jag använde mig av Sigmas fina Warm Neutrals palett. Det var rätt konstigt ljus den dagen men jag hoppas ni ser hur färgerna är ändå.
Hoppas ni har det bra och får en fina vecka!

I’ve been on sick leave since Monday. I’ve got streptococcal sore throat with high fever for two days until I started with the penicillin cure. So now I’m taking penicillin for 10 days. Also my son got pencillin again. It’s so typical, just when we felt on our feet again everything got turned upside down. But a pain like I felt this time in my throat I’ve just experience once before three years ago. It’s terrible, you can’t even swallow without feeling a terrible hurt.
So no time for makeup these days. Instead I’m sharing this makeup I did a couple of weeks ago that I haven’t had the time to share with you yet. I used the beautiful palette Warm Neutrals from Sigma. It was a strange light that day so I hope you can see the colors in a good way.
Hope you’re fine and that you’ll have a great week!

Sono in malattia da lunedì. Ho preso lo streptococco e la mia gola si è gonfiata al massimo e ho avuto febbre alta per 2 giorni fino a che ho iniziato con la cura antibiotica. Per cui ora devo prendere l’antibiotico per 10 giorni. Anche mio figlio ha dovuto prenderlo di nuovo. E’ così tipico, eravamo appena guariti e siamo ricaduti ancora. Ma un male come ho sentito questa volta in gola l’ho solo provato un’altra volta tre anni fa. E’ terribile, non riesci nemmeo a ingoiare senza sentire un forte dolore.
Per cui niente tempo per trucchi questi giorni. Invece vi mostro un trucco che ho creato un paio di settimane fa che non ho avuto il tempo da condividere ancora. Ho usato la bellissima palette Warm Neutral della Sigma. C’era un luce strana quel giorno ma spero che riuscite a vedere bene i colori.
Spero che stiate bene e vi auguro una bella settimana!

Basic Brown Smokey

Jag är väldigt upptagen denna vecka med allt jobb som görs i vår lägenhet så sminkningen jag visar er idag har jag gjort för ett tag sedan. Brun sotade sminkningar är något jag verkligen tycker om. De får liksom en softare finish än när man använder sig av svart vilket gör att de blir lättare att använda till vardags.

I’m really busy this week with all the work we’re doing in our apartment so this make up I show you today I made a while ago. I really like brown smokey make ups. They get a bit of a softer finish than when you use black which makes it easier to use as an everyday make up.

Sono molto impegnata questa settimana con tutti i lavori che stiamo facendo in casa per cui il trucco che vi mostro oggi l’ho fatto tempo fa. Mi piacciono tantissimo i trucchi smokey dove si usa il marrone invece del nero. Da al trucco un effetto più delicato che lo rende più indossabile per tutti i giorno.

 

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion anti-aging. Highlight under the eyebrows with STRANGE.
  2. Blend in LIMIT above the crease.
  3. In the crease blend in MAC eyeshadow HAUX and blend up and outwards.
  4. Over the mobile eyelid apply MAC eyeshadow BROWN DOWN.
  5. In the inner corner of the eye apply DUST.
  6. Line upper and lower waterline with UD 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in WEST.
  7. Under the lower lashline apply BROWN DOWN and blend out with LIMIT.
  8. Apply Sigma Standout Eyes gel eyeliner in Wicked and make a wing.
  9. Apply mascara and put on false eyelashes.
  10. As a face contour use Bronzing Veil. On the cheeks aplpy Sephora’s blush Romantic Rose and highlight the cheekbones with Benefit’s Sun Beam.
  11. On the lips apply Kryolan Lipstick LF430. Set the make up with Motives Cosmetics No More Shine Make Up setting spray.

 

A chance I take

En varm sotad sminkning idag med Stila paletten In the know. Jag totalt älskar den paletten, färgerna är så underbara och otroligt lätta att applicera och sota med. Just det, dessa ögonskuggor kan även användas blöta.
Nu ska jag börja packa våra resväskor för tidigt imorgon bitti åker jag och mina älskade barn hem till mina föraldrar i Linköping.
Ha en riktigt fin dag!

A warm smokey make up today using Stila In the Know palette. I totally love this palette, the colors are amazing and it’s so easy to apply and blend these eyeshadows. More, you can also use these eyeshadows wet.
Now I need to start packing out bags because early tomorrow morning me and my kids are flying to my parents in Sweden.
Have a lovely day!

Per oggi un trucco smokey con colori caldi dove ho usato la palette In the Know della Stila. Amo questa palette, i colori sono fantastici e molto facili sia da applicare che sfumare. In più, questi ombretti possono essere usati anche bagnati.
