Pink Spring

Here in Florence it’s been a few days with incredibly warm weather for the season. I think we had 24 degrees yesterday and close to that also today. It’s really wonderful and all the trees and flowers are starting to bloom out really fast now. The sunsets at night are spectacular and I get so inspired by all these wonderful colors.
My makeup inspiration of today’s look come from what nature offers right now, beautiful spring colors. Then Easter is coming up soon and I love to be colorful at this time of the year.

I hope you’ve had a great week and will have a nice weekend! We’re going quickly up to Sweden but will be back already on Tuesday. I’m really looking forward to come home even if it’s just for a short visit. ❤

Summer Breeze

This is a look I created inspired by a warm yet breezy summer day. I used very soft shimmery colors mixed with a few matte ones just to get a nice soft blending. I added a pair of blue false eyelashes to finish the look and even though you can go strong on the lipcolor here I prefered a soft glossy shade just to enhance the eyes even more. Probably for a night out I would choose a more intense lipcolor, quite likely in a pink shade.
I used Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette to create the eye makeup.

I hope that you all are having a nice Friday and that you’ll have a wonderful weekend! ❤

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.

Purified

Idag verkar våren så långt bort man bara kan komma, det regnar och blåser ute just nu. Min lilla tjej har dessutom varit hemma från skolan med ont i halsen och feber. Jag ringde hennes doktor och vi fick komma direkt. Det visade sig (som jag anade) att hon hade fått streptokocker…igen! Så nu bli det en 10-dagars penicillinkur. Det enda jag hoppas nu är att vi övriga familjemedlemmar blir besparade på denna tortyr! Vi brukar ofta åka på det allihopa då någon av oss har det… Jag har själv ont i halsen sen ett par dagar men jag hoppas bara det är en vanlig förkylning.
Denna sminkning gjorde jag för ett tag sedan där jag använde mig av Urban Decay’s första Vice palette! Den är fortfarande en storfavorit!
Ha en underbar start på veckan!

Today the spring seems as far away as it possibly can get, it’s raining and is really windy outside. My little girl has been home from school today with a sore throat and fever. I called her doctor and we could come immediately. It showed (as I sensed) that she got streptococcus…again! So now she has to take penicillin for 10 days! The only thing I hope now is that we remaining family members will be spared of this torture! We normally get contaminated all of us once one of us get it… Myself have been having a sore throat for a couple of days now but I hope it’s just a normal cold.
I did this makeup a while ago using the first Vice palette from Urban Decay. It’s still a big favorite of mine!
Have a wonderful start of the week!

Oggi la primavera sembra essere sparita completamente, piove e c’è tanto vento fuori. Mia figlia è stata a casa oggi dalla scuola con mal di gola e febbre. Ho telefonato al suo pediatra che ci ha fatto venire subito. Come si voleva dimostrare ha ripreso lo streptococco… Per 10 giorni deve prendere l’antibiotico. Ora spero solo che noi altri membri della famiglia saremo risparmiati da questa tortura! Purtroppo, normalmente, lo prediamo tutti appena uno di noi l’ha preso… Io stesso, da un paio di giorni ho mal la gola ma spero sia solo una semplice raffreddore.
Ho fatto questo trucco un pò di tempo fa usando la prima Vice palette della Urban Decay. E’ ancora un grande favorito!
Vi auguro una bellissima settimana!
