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.

Pink and Gold Christmas

Today’s look goes in pink, purple and gold shades. These colors make me feel happy and I think it can be a fun alternative look for Christmas, or for one of all the upcoming Christmas parties. These are great shades to make green and brown eyes pop even more.
The AMC eyeliner gel 74 from Inglot that I’ve used for this look is one of the best gel eyeliners I’ve ever tried. I love the purple shade but even better is that this eyeliner really last the whole day without smudging nor ending up in the crease. As I wrote in an earlier post, it’s so hard to find reliable waterproof gel eyeliners, so I’m really glad I took the chance to try it. I’m also trying out their black one now, nr 77, and I’m in love with that one too.

Yesterday I worked, (I did the makeup on 13 people!), and my last working day before the Christmas holidays will be this Friday.
We’re leaving on Saturday morning for the north of Italy and after that we’re going up to Sweden. Tonight and tomorrow I’ve to do all the packing.

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Destination Fall

Since the fall is really around the corner also my makeup inspiration gets affected by all the beautiful colors outside.
I’ve been out running a lot lately and I get so much positive energy out of it. Beeing out when the sun rises is really amazing and the nature is so beautiful at that hour.

INGLOT AMC – Eyeliner Gel

Sorry about being away for so long. Unfortunately I haven’t had any time at all to dedicate to the blog lately. It’s been and is still a frenetic time and mentally I’ve been elsewhere. But I’ve got a few new looks coming up and I still get that positive vibe when creating them so I’ll definately continue blogging and hopefully more soon.
Me and my family came back to Italy a few weeks ago from Sweden and now the kids are back in school so more or less everything is back on track again.

Today I wanted to talk about these eyeliner gels from Inglot. They’re really everything! I bought them in the Inglot store in the Mall of Scandinavia in Stockholm about a month ago. Inglot has got so many nice products but I didn’t buy anything else.
Lately I’ve been using the AMC eyeliner gel nr 74 which is a beautiful purple color and I really love it. The best thing about it, which is actually hard to find in a gel eyeliners, is that it’s completely waterproof! It doesn’t smudge nor fade away during the day, which a few ”higher” brands gel eyeliners can tend to do. I’ve spend double money on ”waterproof” gel eyeliners from other brands and after a few hours I find them in the crease and all smudged out, and that’s not ok(!).

The creamy and delicate formula of this eyeliner gel dries in 60 seconds into a waterproof, smudge proof, and crease proof finish. I can really recommend it. The cost for it is about €15, I paid 140 swedish crowns which is overall the same.

I haven’t opened the black, nr 77, yet so I didn’t swatch them but I’ve got a look for you here under where I used the nr 74 so you can see how gorgeous the purple color is.


Here’s one look that I created using Inglot’s AMC Eyeliner gel 74.
