Have you ever had an eyeshadow palette with metallic or shimmer shadows that looks soooo amazing, but once you apply them (even with primer underneath) they just look so DULL!?
You start to question if you even put on any eyeshadow to begin with and you just end up with shimmery dust all over your face, cursing out that you spent good money on a useless eyeshadow palette that only looked pretty on inspo photos on Instagram…
Well well well, you can sit back, relax and rely on the beautyblogging-guru (Hahaha yas I’m talking about myself and yes I’m kidding) to give your the best tricks to solve this problem. Just look at the swatches I have done on these photos, looks pretty amazing huh?
No need for paying for pricey primers, all you need to do is soak your eyeshadow or highlighter brush into some cold water, dab off the excessive water and gently stroke the wet brush into the shadow or highlighter.
And BOOM, you got yourself the most popping pigmented eyeshadow ever!!!
This work on pretty much all eye shadows or highlighters that contain either lots of shimmer or glitter.
I tried it with maybe 5 different brands now and I’m shook on how great it works. It works even on products that are not suppose to be used as a “wet or dry”- eyeshadow. This will be so good for the summer when you want to highlight your decolletage as well.
However do not try these with matte shadows, I got no solutions more than avoid mattes. At least that’s I do :))
And also apply the eye make up using a wet brush as the first step of your make up routine, wait with both the mascara and base products until you’re finish with the eyeshadow. Don’t want any wet eyeshadow on top of a gorgeous base or on newly painted mascara :))
Let me know how this works for you dolls if you try it ♥
My favorite scented candles since I was maybe around 15 years old has always been Diptyque, especially the scent Feu De Bois.
It smells like a rustic open wood fire, like you’re sitting in front of a open fire in the alps or something. At least that’s what I imagine when I light up that candle and let the scent spread throughout the apartment.
It such a lovely scent because its neither feminine or macules, it smells so homely and not too sweet like some candles do. Btw, this candle is pretty much the perfect gift for a couple at least if you ask me!
I remember going to the Diptyque store in paris on my 18th Birthday trip to Paris and it was such a lovely experience to see a whole store filled with nothing but candles.
Unfortunately I couldn’t bring as many home as I liked, but I remember buying at least two :))
The second thing I love about these candles are that they are PERFECT to clean out when the candle is brunt down and use as either brush or pencil holders.
I currently have three empty Diptyque candles as brush holders and I’m planning on cleaning out more of them soon :))
The girl behind the blog Beauty Look Book (her photos below) has really come up with cute ways to use old Diptyque candles!
I have the same big black candle as seen on the last photo and she has turned hers into a mini vase for cut roses *heart eye emoji*, wow so clever!
Madison Beer is fairly “unknown” in Sweden, but she is def the It-girl of Instagram!
She’s a singer that got famous after Justin Bieber tweeted a video of her singing. I mean that must be most peoples dream, have a huge artists give you a shout out or repost, wow! These celebs really do hold the power of social media.
Anyway she looked absolutely stunning in her neutral beige dress at the AmfAR Gala. Can’t believe she is only 17, she looks at least 25 years old. Don’t know if that is good or bad however, it’s crazy how quickly teenagers grow up today and they look like proper adults when they are not even 20 yet.
Hope you are all surviving this grey and boring Monday.
Today marks the day when a whopping two months has passed since the last time I had any sweets!!
Since New Years Eve I have not had any ice cream, cakes, cookies, no chocolate, candy, junk food meaning no french fries, onion rings, pizza etc, stopped drinking carbonated drinks including sparkling water, no full fat chips/crisp (only lentil flour baked non fried “chips”), nothing unhealthy really. And also no alcohol.
As many of you loyal readers might remember I have been complaining on and off over my sugar/candy “addiction” and I decided it was time to put an end to that.
Since my health has become worse and worse in ways that I’m totally not in control over, nothing I can change or affect, I decided I wanted to do everything in my power to protect my health in every aspects I can.
Meaning food and lifestyle choices.
I’m now following an alkaline diet which is the best diet to follow to prevent any health conditions or diseases like diabetes, cancer etc etc.
I’m planning on writing a longer post about what an Alkaline lifestyle means but I will summarize it as short as I can.
The optimal Ph level for the body is 7.3, this is the Ph level when the body will function at it’s best and prevent diseases to grow. If the level goes below that diseases can grow and take hold in the body. For example cancer cells can’t grow in a high Ph level environment. So everything that has a low Ph level I’m not eating or consuming anymore. You are suppose to eat “high Alkaline foods” approx 80% of the time and the rest of the 20% you can eat whatever you like but avoid the worst low level Ph foods. Also called acid foods.
To mention a thing that are acid; Coffee, sugar, alcohol, meat, fish, chicken and dairy from cows (soy and almond milk is OK), sodas and sparkling water are among a few things to avoid.
Since I haven’t been able to excise at all the goal with this was not too loose weight but to just live a new healthy lifestyle. However if you would follow the Alkaline diet and combine it excises I’m sure amazing results can be achieved.
If any of you dolls want too I’m happy to share some of my amazing healthy and tasty food recipes here on the blog?
Healthy food does not need to be boring <3

Hi dolls, I hope you all had a great day!
I thought I would start to share more of my make up collection here on the blog! As well as I’m going to be doing more dupes and swatches. A couple of years ago I did not get the idea of swatches AT ALL thought it was totally pointless but now I’ve completely changed my mind. I love to look at swatch videos and photo. My faves from all the products I’ve tried from Kylie Cosmetics are without a doubt the So Cute gloss and the Koko K lip liner!
