Easter Makeup 2017

We started with some small Easter celebrations already this morning. I had hidden the childrens Easter eggs together with a present, so we had a small Easter egg hunt after breakfast this morning. The children were so excited and happy! Then what I love about them is that they show their appreciation. I never want them to take anything for granted and I think they’ve started to understand what I mean now. ❤

For this Easter I wanted a fresh colorful makeup and this is the result. I used a soft pink lipstick to this look with a touch of glitter to the lower central lip, (which was more for the photo, I would never eat with glitter on my lips 😉 ). The lipstick comes from Euphidra, the brand I’m promoting and doing makeup for around different pharmacies here in Florence. It’s from their new serie that recently launched. I’m so exited because the quality and the shades are amazing. As soon as I’ll have the time I’m going to do a post showing you all their new lipsticks.

I want to wish you a fantastic Easter weekend and send you all lots of love! 🐣🐰

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.

I hope all of you’re great and I’ll try to update the blog soon again. ❤

Even though it’s been rainy and kind of cold for a couple of days here in Florence you can feel that the summer is very close. Finally the days are longer again and that gives you definately much more energy. This makeup represents in colors the summer feelings I start to feel inside.

The best way to create a soft smokey makeup (in any color) is to have patience while blending the colors together and of course the use of good professional makeup brushes. My absolute favorite brushes come from Sigma and Bdellium Tools. The best about them is of course that they do an amazing job while applying products and blending colors but also that after you’ve cleaned and dried them they remain the same wash after wash. I’ve been using these brushes for over two years now and love them. If you want any suggestions or have any questions about makeup brushes feel free to ask me.

I finally created a public Facebook page dedicated only for makeup. If you want and are interested to follow me there you can go and like Maria Bergmark Makeup. I would really appreciate it! It’s also a great way for me to stay in contact with all of you who loves makeup as much as me.

Wish a wonderful start of this new week!

Love for Eyeshadows

Eftersom jag älskar ögonskuggorna från Makeup Geek beställde jag ytterligare tio stycken. Den här gången blev det några mer färgglada. Pigmentering är helt fantastiskt och att sminka med dessa är himmel för mig! Om ni inte visste det innan så är jag galen i ögonskuggor!

Since I love the eyeshadows from Makeup Geek I ordered other ten of them. This time a bit more colorful. The pigmentation is fantastic and to do makeup with these is heaven for me. If you didn’t know it from before I’m crazy for eyeshadows!

Siccome mi sono trovata così bene con gli ombretti di Makeup Geek ho ordinato altri dieci. Questa volta un pò più colorati. La pigmentazione è fantastica e truccare con questi per me è paradiso. Se non lo sapevate da prima vado pazza per ombretti!

Alla mina Makeup Geek ögonskuggor tillsammans.

And all of my Makeup Geek eyeshadows together.

Tutti i miei ombretti di Makeup Geek insieme.

Efter någon timme lyckades jag även organisera, inte alla, men nästan alla mina lösa ögonskuggor i mina tre Z-paletter. Att vakna på morgonen nu och ha allt lite mer ordningsamt gör att jag känner mig mer kreativ.

After more or less an hour I also managed to organize, not all, but almost all of my single eyeshadows in my three Z-palettes. To wake up now in the morning and have everything a bit more orderly makes me feel more creative.

Dopo qualche ora sono anche riuscita ad organizzare, non tutti, ma quasi tutti miei ombretti singoli dentro i miei tre Z-palette. Svegliarsi la mattina ora ed avere tutto un pochino più ordinato mi fa sentire più creativa.


Gwen Stefani Lippencil WONDERLAND

Som ni ser kan man få två helt olika reslutat av denna läppenna. Genom att enbart applicera den får man en riktigt intensiv röd färg, men om man först använder ett läppbalsam och applicerar den lätt över får man en mer rosa röd färg, som såklart även känns mer behaglig på läpparna. Att bara använda en läppenna brukar vara alldeles för torrt och är inte alls en skön känsla på läpparna. Alla läppennor är såklart inte lika och det finns självklart alltid undantag. Jag gillar den här läppennan men jag hade nog alldeles för höga förväntning på den och tyvärr var den inte exakt lika bra som jag hade hoppats på att den skulle vara. Den är lite för mjuk och dessutom svår att applicera ut jämt över läpparna vilket är riktigt störande. Färgen håller dock väldigt bra vilket är ett stort plus. Jag tycker den är bäst att använda, antingen i kombination med ett läppstift för att få färgen att hålla extra länge, eller som jag gjort på bilden här över och använda den över ett läppbalsam.

As you can see you can get two completely different results with this lippencil. If you just apply it without using anything else you can get a really intense red color, but if you use it more gently over a lipbalm you get a more pink red color, that obviously also feels more pleasant on the lips. To only use a lippencil normally is too dry and is not a nice feeling on the lips. All lippencils are of course different and there are always exceptions. I like this lippencil but I think I had too high expectations about it and it’s unfortunately not as good as I thought it would have been. It’s a bit too soft and it’s actually hard to apply the color evenly on the mouth which is really disturding. But the color lasts for a really long time which is a good plus. The way I like to use it is, or over a lipstick to make the color last even longer or as I did on the picture above over a lipbalm.

Come vedete sulle foto qui sopra si riesce ad ottenere due risultati completamente diversi con questa matita labbra. Se applicata da sola direttamente sulle labbra si ottiene un colore rosso intenso, ma se prima si usa un balsamo per le labbra e poi si applica leggermente sopra il colore ottenuto sarà un rosa rosso più soft ed ovviamente la sensazione sulle labbra sarà più piacevole. Usare solo una matita labbra molte volte secca troppo il labbro e non è una bella sensazione. Da dire però che tutte matite labbra sono diverse e ci sono sempre eccezioni. Mi piace questa matita ma le mie aspettative erano sicuramente troppo alte e purtroppo non è stata così fantastica come l’avevo immaginata. È un pò troppo morbida ed è difficile distribuire il colore uniformemente sulle labbra cosa che mi disturba tantissimo. Dall’altra parte il colore rimane a lungo, cosa molto positiva. Io la userò soprattutto sotto un rossetto per intensificare e far durare il colore più  a lungo, oppure come sulla foto qui sopra, sopra un balsamo per le labbra.

UD 24/7 Waterline Eyepencil RAIL

Den här ögonpennan är speciellt gjort för vattenlinjen. Färgen Rail är en jättefin mörkbrun färg. Jag har använt UD 24/7 glide-on ögonpennorna jättelänge och nu när de kommit ut med en serie speciellt för vattenlinjen ville jag såklart prova den. Jag hoppades att de totalt skulle revolutionera den här typen av ögonpenna, och även om de glider på fantastiskt och färgen är toppen, är resultatet inte helt det jag hade hoppats på. Uppenbarligen hade jag hoppats på att den skulle hålla längre än vad den gör innan man ytterligare måste applicera den än en gång. Om jag applicerar den runt 7 på morgen är färgen i stort sett borta vid 8:30. Om jag då ytterligare applicerar den håller färgen mycket bättre. Det kanske är så man måste göra för att denna penna ska hålla som bäst? Vattenlinjen är självklart alltid en kritiskt punkt som är i konstant kontakt med ögon vätska och rörlighet så det påverkar ju såklart produktens hållbarheten.

This eyepencil is specially made for using in the waterline. The color Rail is a really nice darkbrown color. I’ve used the UD 24/7 glide-on eyepencils for a really long time and now when they have come out with a serie specially made for the waterline I just had to try it out. I really hoped that these ones would totally revolutionize this type of eyepencil, and even though it glides on smoothly and the color is great and intense the result isn’t exactly what I had hoped for. Obviously I had hoped that it would have last much longer than what it does before you need to apply it one more time. If I apply it around 7 in the morning much of the color has faded away around 8:30. If I then apply it once more the color will remain on better afterwards. Maybe that’s how you should do to make this eyepencil last its best? The waterline is always a critical point and is constantly in contact with eye liquid and movement so that definitely affects the lasting quality of the color.

Questa matita è fatta specialmente per la riga interna dell’occhio. Il colore Rail è un colore marrone scuro molto bello. È da tanto tempo che uso le loro matite 24/7 glide-on ed ora quando sono usciti con questa nuova serie ho voluto provarla. Le mie speranze erano che questo prodotto avrebbe completamente rivoluzionato questo tipo di matita occhio, ed anche se si applica facilmente ed il colore è inteso e molto bello il risultato non è esattamente quello che avevo sperato. Ovviamente avrei voluto una durata molto più lunga prima di doverla riapplicare. Se la applico alle 7 di mattina alle 8:30 molto del colore è già andato via. Se a quel punto la riapplico il colore durerà più a lungo. Forse è così che si debba fare per ottenere il risultato migliore? La linea interna dell’occhio è sempre un punto critico sottoposta a movimento e liquidi cosa che ovviamente condizionerà la resistenza del prodotto.
