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!

Dulce tormento

Imorse var jag på ansiktsrengöring vilket var riktigt skönt att få göra. Lite lidande såklart men efteråt känns ansiktet så mjukt. Så idag pausar jag från allt sminkande. Sminkning jag visar är ifrån veckan och jag har mest använt mig av KIKOs ögonskuggor för att göra den.
Ha en bra fredag kväll!

This morning I went to do a facial cleansing, which was so nice. A bit suffering but afterwards the face feels so soft. So today I’m taking a small break from all the make up. The make up I share today is one I made this week and I’ve used mainly the eyeshadows from KIKO to create it.
Have a great Friday!

Jag hoppas i alla fall att komma ut på en springrunda i eftermiddag eller imorgonbitti, eller båda om det går bra.
En soft färgglad sminkning blev det idag med en grön eyeliner till.

Even though it’s the 1st of June and you should have some summer feelings it’s very cold and rainy here in Florence.
