Too Faced – Natural Matte Look

This Natural Matte eyeshadow palette from Too Faced has been one of those palettes I’ve been looking at for a long time without purchase, but when the right occasion showed up I just had to buy it. It’s one of those perfect ”easy to go” everyday palettes, and it hasn’t let me down. I really like it and use it a lot. The shadows are very soft with a good pigmentation and very blendable. With the right primer under they last without problem the whole day.

Have a wonderful weekend now!!! Here in Florence it just started to rain.

Here’s one look a created a while ago using this eyeshadow palette. I combined it with a strong matte lip using one of Euphidra’s new lipsticks.

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion anti-aging. Highlight under the eyebrows with Heaven.
  2. Blend in Lace Teddy above the crease.
  3. Right under blend in Strapless.
  4. Add intesity to the outer V with Risqué and blend outwards and up in the crease.
  5. Apply Chocolate Cookie over the middle mobile eyelid.
  6. In the inner part of the mobile eyelid apply Honey Butter.
  7. Apply Heaven to the inner corner of the eye.
  8. Along the lower lashline apply Risqué.
  9. Blend it out using Strapless.
  10. Apply an eyeliner using Euphidra’s waterproof eyepencil EA04 Terra Bruciata and smudge it out.
  11. Apply Euphidra’s lengthening mascara.
  12. Contour the face using ABH Contour Kit. On the cheeks apply Sigma’s Powder Blush in Cheeky.
  13. On the lips apply Euphidras Lipstick Rosso Labbra Mat RM01. Done!

Realgar

My makeup suggestion for the weekend is this soft orange autumn makeup look that is super easy and fast to create. I personally used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette for this look. This palette has really become my ”go to” palette and I use it many times during the weeks.
For this look I’ve only used four eyeshadows of the palette and Realgar is a shade that I adore. It’s amazing by itself or as a transition color.

Have a wonderful autumn weekend now! 🍁🍃🍂

Autumn Sensation

This weekend I’m in Sweden with the whole family. I’m really happy to be back again even if just for a few days. The weather here is of course much colder, even though it has been cold also in Italy, but here the autumn is much more ahead than in Florence. I love every season but the autumn, if it’s a beautiful day, can be surprisingly amazing with its wonderful colors.

Here’s another fall makeup that I’ve done using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. The shades in this palette are really perfect for this season.

Destination Fall

Since the fall is really around the corner also my makeup inspiration gets affected by all the beautiful colors outside.
I’ve been out running a lot lately and I get so much positive energy out of it. Beeing out when the sun rises is really amazing and the nature is so beautiful at that hour.

For this look I used the Holy Grail palette from Violet Voss. I’ve been using it really a lot lately and I’m really pleased with it.

Respectability

Dagens sminkning är gjord med Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. Efter att ha provat den ett antal gånger kan jag intyga och säga att jag verkligen gillar de här ögonskuggorna. Det var länge sedan Urban Decay gjorde något nytt som fick mig att höja på ögonbrynen och vilja köpa och prova det. Om en palett ska få min totala uppmärksamhet måste den erbjuda en bra mix med matta, satinerade och skimriga färger, men de jag alltid söker mer av är framför allt de matta.
Jag önsker er en bra start på veckan.

Today’s makeup is made using the Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. After I’ve been using it a few times I can certainly say that I really like these eyeshadows. It’s been a long time since Urban Decay came out with something new that made me want to buy and try it out. An eyeshadow palette can just get my complete attention if it has a good mix between matte, satinated and shimmery eyeshadows, but the ones that I value more are the matte ones.
I want to wish you a great start of the week.

Il trucco di oggi è fatto con la palette Gwen Stefani di Urban Decay. Dopo averla provata più volte posso confermare che mi piacciono davvero questi ombretti. E’ da molto tempo che Urban Decay non è uscito con un prodotto nuovo che ho voluto comprare e provare. Per avere la mia completa attenzione una palette d’ombretti deve avere un giusto mix tra colori opachi, satinati e scintillanti, ma quelli che valorizzo di più sono quelli opachi.
Vi auguro un bel inizio della settimana.

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s primer potion anti-aging. Highlight under the eyebrows with Blonde.
  2. Mix Anaheim and Zone and blend them in above the crease.

1990’s Look with a Twist

Jag såg en så himla snygg bild på Cindy Crawford för ett par veckor sedan. En av hennes tidningsomslag för tidningen Cosmopolitan under 90-talet. Jag blev sådar superinspirerad att jag vaknade klockan fem på morgonen bara för att kunna stå en halvtimme extra och sminka mig. Hur snygg är hon inte? Det går ju absolut inte att komma i närheten av hennes skönhet men hon var i alla fall min inspiration for denna look även om jag la på lite glitter och extra långa ögonfransar.

I saw such a gorgeous picture of Cindy Crawford a couple of weeks ago. It was a picture of on of her coverphotos for Cosmopolitan during the 1990’s. I got super inspired and woke up five o’clock that morning just to be able to stay half an hour more do my makeup. How stunning isn’t she? It’s absolutely impossible to even get close to her beautifulness but she’s was my inspiration for this look even though I added glitter and extra long lashes.

Ho visto una splendida foto di Cindy Crawford un paio di settimane fa. Era una delle sue foto di copertina per il giornale Cosmopolitan durante gli anni 90. Mi ha ispirato tanto al punto da svegliarmi alle cinque del mattino solo per potermi truccare quella mezzora in più. Ma quanto è spledida? E’ impossibile solo avvicinarsi alla sua bellezza ma è lei che mi ha ispirato a fare questo trucco anche se ho aggiunto glitter e ciglie finte lunghissime.
