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!!! ❤

Look for the weekend

Here’s a look I made mixing matte neutral shades with green and purple. A simple yet fun look that is easy to create.

This weekend I will spend with my family just relaxing. It’s been a busy week! I can’t believe it’s almost December and that Christmas is coming up. I need to start thinking about all the Christmas present, hopefully without getting too stressed ;-).
This sunday we will light up the first candle of Advent, that’s a Swedish tradition I always will continue with. At the same time I will try to decorate the house a bit.

Wish you all a great weekend!

Soft Romantic Make Up Look

De här veckorna hemma i Sverige har jag mestadels gjort softa neutrala sminkningar med något litet undantag.
Den här enkla sminkningen utan lösögonfransar tycker jag passar perfekt till något romantiskt som t.ex. en brudsminkning för den som inte vill ha en alltför markerad sminkning.

These weeks home in Sweden I’ve mostly done soft neutral makeups with a few exceptions.
This easy makeup without false eyelashes is perfect for something romantic for example a bridal makeup for the ones that don’t want their makeup to be too heavy.

Queste settimane qui a casa in Svezia ho soprattutto fatto trucchi neutrali con qualche eccezione.
Questo trucco piacevole senza ciglie finte è perfetto per un evento romantico come ad esempio il trucco sposa per la sposa che non vuole avere un trucco troppo pesante.

 

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion. Highlight with Brilliance under the eyebrows and sweep it in over the browbone.
  2. Blend in HAUX above the crease.
  3. Apply BLACKBERRY to the outer part of the mobile eyelid and blend outwards and up in the crease.
  4. Over the mobile eyelid and in the inner corner of the eye apply NAKED LUNCH.
  5. Apply Stila’s smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in Halfmoon along the outer part close to the upper and lower lashline creating a soft wing. Smudge it out.
  6. Over the smudged out eyeliner apply a bit of Instinct.
  7. Line the waterline with a beige kajal.
  8. Apply mascara.
  9. Contour the face using ABH Contour Cream Kit and set it with the Contour Kit.
  10. On the lips apply KIKO’s Precision Lipliner 310 and over it a lip balm.
  11. Set the make up with UD de-slick makeup setting spray. Done!

Warm Minds

Dagens sminkning är en soft suddad variant, och hör och häpna, utan min klassiska eyeliner med vinge! 😉 Kände att jag behövde en liten förändring idag och jag gillar starkt denna sminkning. Jag tror denna får bli min nya favorit vardags sminkning!
Hoppas ni har en riktigt bra tisdag! Jag ska strax och hämta barnen på dagis och skola och sen har min lilla tjej volleyboll träning.
