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. ❤

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.

I wish you a great start of the week!

Summerish

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!

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.
