Autumn Sunrise

Imorse började skolorna här i Italien och min lilla tjej började i första klass. Jag kan inte fatta att tiden har gått så fort… Hon tyckte det skulle bli jättespannade och allt har gått bra. Denna vecka går de bara till 12:30 men från nästa vecka drar det igång på allvar fram till 16:30. Oliver däremot börjar dagis på torsdag. Eftersom det är nytt dagis blir det inskolning för hans del. Det kan nog ta ett tag men jag tror allt kommer att gå bra där också.
Idag visar jag er en höstig sminkning med mycket färg som jag gjorde när vi var i Sverige.

This morning the schools here in Italy started and my little girl started in elementary school. I can’t believe that time has gone so fast… She was excited about it and everything went fine. This week they just stay until 12:30 but from next week they’ll go until 16:30. Oliver on the other hand will start the Kindergarten on Thursday morning. Since it’s a new Kindergarten for him I’ll be there during the first days.
Today I show you and autumn make up with lots of color that I made while we were in Sweden.

Questa mattina la mia bambina ha iniziato la prima elementare. Il tempo è davvero passato troppo in fretta… Era emozionata ed è andato tutto benissimo. Questa settimana fanno solo metà giornata ma dalla settimana prossima inizieranno le giornate intere. Oliver inizierà la materna giovedì e spero che l’inserimento di lui non sarà troppo lungo. So benissimo che dopo l’estate non è facile riprendere queste attività ma sicuramente andrà bene.
Oggi vi mostro un trucco autunnale con tanto colore che ho fatto mentre eravamo in Svezia.

På naglarna den senaste tiden gillar jag att använda detta nagellack från Gina Tricot.

On the nails lately I love to use this nail polish from Gina Tricot.

Sulle unghie ultimamente amo usare questo smalto da Gina Tricot.

 


Det här är ungefär så många smink penslar jag använder till en sådan här sminkning och som behöver tvättas.

This is about how many make up brushes I use for a make up like this and that need to be washed.

Questi sono all’incirca quanti pennelli uso per un trucco di questo tipo e che devono essere lavati.

New In – NYX & Bdellium Tools

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream

Jag har verkligen fått smak för NYX Xtreme lip cream. De ger ett krämigt täckande resultat som sitter i. Jag beställde nyligen de har två färgerna.

I’ve really fallen for NYX Xtreme lip cream. These ones give a creamy covering result that’s long lasting. I recently ordered these two shades.

Mi piace davvero tanto Xtreme lip cream da NYX Cosmentics. Sono cremosi e molto coprenti ed il colore è a lunga durata. Recentemente ho ordinato questi due colori.

706 ultra fine eyeliner
med denna extra tunna eyeliner pensel kan du lätt skapa tunna noggranna linjer. Jag har många eyeliner penslar men denna blev direkt en favorit. Dessa syntetiska hårstrån är precis lagom hårda för att göra en perfekt eyeliner. Jag föredrar att inte ha de för mjuka eftersom jag mest använder mig av gel eyeliner.

706 ultra fine eyeliner
with this extra fine eyeliner brush you can easy create fine precise lines. I’ve many eyeliner brushes and this one is one of my favorites. These synthetic bristles are just enough stiff to get a perfect accurate eyeliner. I prefer them not to be to soft since I mainly use gel eyeliners.

706 ultra fine eyeliner
con questo eyeliner finissimo puoi facilmente creare linee precise. Ho tanti pennelli per eyeliner e questo è diventato subito un preferito. Le setole sintetiche sono abbastanza rigide per fare un eyeliner preciso. Io preferisco non averli troppo morbide visto che soprattutto uso l’eyeliner in gel.
