Easter Makeup 2017

We started with some small Easter celebrations already this morning. I had hidden the childrens Easter eggs together with a present, so we had a small Easter egg hunt after breakfast this morning. The children were so excited and happy! Then what I love about them is that they show their appreciation. I never want them to take anything for granted and I think they’ve started to understand what I mean now. ❤

For this Easter I wanted a fresh colorful makeup and this is the result. I used a soft pink lipstick to this look with a touch of glitter to the lower central lip, (which was more for the photo, I would never eat with glitter on my lips 😉 ). The lipstick comes from Euphidra, the brand I’m promoting and doing makeup for around different pharmacies here in Florence. It’s from their new serie that recently launched. I’m so exited because the quality and the shades are amazing. As soon as I’ll have the time I’m going to do a post showing you all their new lipsticks.

I want to wish you a fantastic Easter weekend and send you all lots of love! 🐣🐰

Options

Wow the weeks are going fast now! I ended last week with some work which always is really nice.
At the same time we had a long weekend since the school decided to do a strike on Friday. That’s Italy… Noone understands why, noone tells you and nothing ever changes…hahaha… Luckily I wasn’t working Friday so I could stay with my children.

So today’s look feels a bit more ”springy”. Light green shades mixed with earthy tones is always a happy mix. I added pink lips to this look to make it even brighter.

Have a wonderful happy week!!! ❤

Too Funky

The weather here in Florence been so grey and rainy lately that I felt that I needed to cheer up a bit with a fun colorful halo makeup look. I mainly used colors in purple, pink and gold. This could be an idea for Valentines Day or for a fun night out. In this look I also tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, shade Amber Gold, which is a lovely golden highlighter that reflects a bit of pink. I really love this Glow Kit, I’ve been using it frequently.

Red Light

I was so enthusiastic for this new year until I came back to Florence and a lot of things just went wrong. Cracked car wind shield because of a stone on the motorway, heating system not working correctly in the house, water leak from one of the radiators…
Then personally I’ve a problem with my knee so it’s hard for me right now to do physical activity. I love going out running and walking but the pain is stopping me for doing so. All these things together make me feel really down, without energy and actually a bit depressed in this moment. At least I hope my passion for makeup will return soon beacuse right now I’m in lack of inspiration. But, it can always be worse so I don’t want to complain. I think it’s normal to feel a bit down once in a while, also because then you appreciate even more when you feel good again. I’m normally a positive person and when this period is over I hope to restart this year with the right spirit.

The makeup I show you today is a simple warm smokey look where I’ve been using eyeshadows from Sigma’s Warm Neutral eyeshadow palette.

Want to wish you all a good weekend!!! ❤

  6. Along the lower lashline apply Warm Stone.

  9. Apply Euphidra’s lengthening mascara.
  10. Contour the face using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit. On the cheeks apply Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupté Passionnee nr 6.

Happy 2017

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas and now are ready to bring in 2017!
For me and my family Christmas has been wonderful. What I appreciate the most is to be able to spend time together with the ones that I love. I know Christmas is a tough period for many, that for different reasons can’t, won’t and are not able to celebrate, so being able to stay with the family for me is worth everything.

For Christmas I made a simple yet glittery makeup in warm tones with red lips. Here’s a picture of what came out. The light was really scarce so I was just able to get one decent photo. The makeup is kind of similar to the one I showed you in earlier post, but here I used the glitter on the eyelid instead and with a brown eyeliner.


But now, let’s focus on the makeup for New Year’s Eve instead. Just a few days left!
My idea for the New Years evening is to go for an even more gold glittery look with an intense eye makeup with straight lines and blended out shades. The look I show you is an usable, easy to create, cut crease look. A cut crease makeup isn’t hard to make and if blended out well the result will be magnific. I made a tutorial for you how I created this look that you can have a look at here under.

I wish you all a great prepartion for the New Year’s Eve and a splendid start of 2017! 🎆🎇🎆 

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion. Highlight under the eyebrows with Tempera.
  2. Line the crease using Urban Decay’s 24/7 glide-on eyepencil in West.
  3. Blend in Antique Bronze right over the pencil line and blend out well. Then slightely over the brown blend in Realgar.
  4. Over the mobile eyelid apply NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
  5. Over it apply Primavera and in the inner corner of the eye apply Vermeer.
  6. Apply Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked over the whole mobile eyelid. Then apply Inglot’s AMC Eyeliner Gel 77 and make a wing.
  7. Line upper and lower waterline with Inglot’s AMC Eyeliner Gel 77 and apply it also along the outer part under the lower lashline. Then blend in Cyprus Umber along the lower lashline. Right under Cyprus Umber blend in Love Letter.
  8. Apply Armani’s Black Ecstasy Mascara and put on Red Cherry’s eyelashes WSP.
  9. Contour the face using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. On the cheeks apply Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupté Passionnee nr 6.
  10. To the lips first apply NYX Lip Primer and then over it line and color the lips with Kryolan’s darkred faceliner. Over it apply Yves Saint Laurent’s Gloss Volupté 1 Golden. Your New Year’s makeup is ready!

🎄 Classical Christmas 🎄

So now it’s just a few days left until Christmas! I love the pre-Christmas period, the atmospere with all its candels and lights. How’s your feelings for Christmas? This year I managed not to stress too much and prepare a little bit at a time.

Then of course it’s this thing with the makeup, to choose one of all the makeups you can do for Christmas. I’ve got so many ideas that I sometimes don’t even know where to start. But I think that in the end I’ll go with a makeup in warm shades, like the one I show you here, with a pinch of glitter. A classical but never out of time makeup look.

I wish you a wonderful week and hope that your Christmas will be wonderful! ❤

Since Saturday afternoon me and my family are in this beautiful place called San Vigilio. It’s a beautiful village in Aldo Adige, in the north of Italy. Here you really get into the Christmas spirit, everything is so beautiful and almost magical. And the food is amazing. Here’s a few pictures from these days.

Pink and Gold Christmas

Today’s look goes in pink, purple and gold shades. These colors make me feel happy and I think it can be a fun alternative look for Christmas, or for one of all the upcoming Christmas parties. These are great shades to make green and brown eyes pop even more.
The AMC eyeliner gel 74 from Inglot that I’ve used for this look is one of the best gel eyeliners I’ve ever tried. I love the purple shade but even better is that this eyeliner really last the whole day without smudging nor ending up in the crease. As I wrote in an earlier post, it’s so hard to find reliable waterproof gel eyeliners, so I’m really glad I took the chance to try it. I’m also trying out their black one now, nr 77, and I’m in love with that one too.

Yesterday I worked, (I did the makeup on 13 people!), and my last working day before the Christmas holidays will be this Friday.
We’re leaving on Saturday morning for the north of Italy and after that we’re going up to Sweden. Tonight and tomorrow I’ve to do all the packing.

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Smooth

I hope you’re having a nice relaxing Sunday. This week I’ve tried to organize as much as possible before Christmas to be able to take it easy the upcoming two weeks. We’re leaving for Sweden soon and I would like to have as much as possible ready during next week. In the meantime I’m also trying my best to create some new makeup looks for the blog.

The look I show you today is super easy to create with a smudged out eyeliner. Here I’m using the waterproof eyepencils from Euphidra, website here, which is an Italian cosmetic line that I collaborate with right now. What I do is that I work for their brand in different pharmacies where I offer a makeup session for their clients and consultency for their products. I love it and the brand is amazing, from the facial creams and face cleaning products to the makeup line.

Have a really nice evening now and I’ll be back soon again with a new look!

  11. Contour the face using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. Apply Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupté Passionnee nr 6.

  13. Set the makeup with Urban Decay’s de-slick makeup setting spray. Done!

Enigma

Finally I’ve been able to create a look using only my eyeshadows from Make Up Store. I bought them this summer and I’ve been using them a lot, it’s just that I haven’t had the proper time to take pictures of how the makeup turn out using them. These warm shades are really classic and easy to wear. I matched the eyemakeup with a pair of red lips. December is a month where I think many of use like wearing red lipstick. Red lips looks also great, maybe even greater, with just a light eyemakeup. The version I did I would suggest as an evening makeup.

Now before Chrismas I’ve some new looks ready that I’ll show you in upcoming posts. Have a great start of the new week!
