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!

Kiss My Eyes

Me and my family just came back from a week in Stockholm. It’s been really nice and Stockholm is as always such a beautiful city with so many things to do. We’ve really been enjoying this week together. We didn’t do much shopping but one day we visitied The Mall of Scandinavia and there I bought myself two gorgeous gel eyeliners from Inglot. I’ve been wanting to try them out for over a year now and finally I got two of them. I will make a post about them further on.

The look I show you today is purple with blendings in orange and yellow. I love this combination of colors. To it I matched with a pink lipstick. I think it’s a fun look you can use for a special occasion or a party.

Modern Renaissance Makeup Look

I’ve been really busy and stressed lately, so finally being able to sit down here with the blog showing you a new look feels very good! Makes me clear my mind at least for a little while.
I made this look a few weeks ago but haven’t been able to organize all the photos until now. The new header for the blog is actually done using this makeup.

It’s now a couple of weeks that I’ve been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette. I can definately say that it has become one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. I love all the shades and it’s easy to create both simple everyday makeup looks and more dramatic intense makeup looks using it. Perfect to bring with you in vacation.

Right now I’m in Sweden and as usual I brought too much makeup with me. (It’s so hard to choose that I always end up bringing more than I need to) When we go for just a week it’s different, then I try to bring just the necessary but when we’ll stay for a longer period like now, I always have a hard time to think rationally. If I don’t bring most of my favorites with me I always think I’m going to miss them so they normally get a place in the bag.
Mostly, these first days, I’ve actually been using the Modern Renaissance palette even though to be completely honest, it’s not that I’m doing much makeup in this period so right now I really wonder what I’ll do with all the makeup I brought with me… I hope my motivation comes back soon!

I hope you guys are doing great! I want to wish you all a fantastic summer whether you’re working or are in vacation!

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.

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.

You will make it alright

Today I show you a glamorous evening makeup in black, gold and warm tones. I matched it with a pair of red lips.
I’ve been using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani lippencil in Wonderland so much lately, specially together with a gloss or a lip balm. Sometimes I use Lancome’s lipstick Rouge in Love 187M Red My Lips over that lippencil to make the look extra intense and long lasting.
I hope you all are enjoying this week!

Respectability

Dagens sminkning är gjord med Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. Efter att ha provat den ett antal gånger kan jag intyga och säga att jag verkligen gillar de här ögonskuggorna. Det var länge sedan Urban Decay gjorde något nytt som fick mig att höja på ögonbrynen och vilja köpa och prova det. Om en palett ska få min totala uppmärksamhet måste den erbjuda en bra mix med matta, satinerade och skimriga färger, men de jag alltid söker mer av är framför allt de matta.
Jag önsker er en bra start på veckan.

Today’s makeup is made using the Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. After I’ve been using it a few times I can certainly say that I really like these eyeshadows. It’s been a long time since Urban Decay came out with something new that made me want to buy and try it out. An eyeshadow palette can just get my complete attention if it has a good mix between matte, satinated and shimmery eyeshadows, but the ones that I value more are the matte ones.
I want to wish you a great start of the week.

Il trucco di oggi è fatto con la palette Gwen Stefani di Urban Decay. Dopo averla provata più volte posso confermare che mi piacciono davvero questi ombretti. E’ da molto tempo che Urban Decay non è uscito con un prodotto nuovo che ho voluto comprare e provare. Per avere la mia completa attenzione una palette d’ombretti deve avere un giusto mix tra colori opachi, satinati e scintillanti, ma quelli che valorizzo di più sono quelli opachi.
Vi auguro un bel inizio della settimana.

1990’s Look with a Twist

Jag såg en så himla snygg bild på Cindy Crawford för ett par veckor sedan. En av hennes tidningsomslag för tidningen Cosmopolitan under 90-talet. Jag blev sådar superinspirerad att jag vaknade klockan fem på morgonen bara för att kunna stå en halvtimme extra och sminka mig. Hur snygg är hon inte? Det går ju absolut inte att komma i närheten av hennes skönhet men hon var i alla fall min inspiration for denna look även om jag la på lite glitter och extra långa ögonfransar.

I saw such a gorgeous picture of Cindy Crawford a couple of weeks ago. It was a picture of on of her coverphotos for Cosmopolitan during the 1990’s. I got super inspired and woke up five o’clock that morning just to be able to stay half an hour more do my makeup. How stunning isn’t she? It’s absolutely impossible to even get close to her beautifulness but she’s was my inspiration for this look even though I added glitter and extra long lashes.

Ho visto una splendida foto di Cindy Crawford un paio di settimane fa. Era una delle sue foto di copertina per il giornale Cosmopolitan durante gli anni 90. Mi ha ispirato tanto al punto da svegliarmi alle cinque del mattino solo per potermi truccare quella mezzora in più. Ma quanto è spledida? E’ impossibile solo avvicinarsi alla sua bellezza ma è lei che mi ha ispirato a fare questo trucco anche se ho aggiunto glitter e ciglie finte lunghissime.
