MAKE UP TRENDS FOR SPRING

products for taupe lips

Okay let’s talk about taupe lips, my current obsession! First there were the nude lip, now it got some fierce competition of the slightly darker beige/nude color, taupe!
I love taupe because it gives the same statement look as red lips but far more flattering (regardless of your skin tone or hair color) and it looks more natural.
I personally do not like red lips on anybody, I think it looks so harsh and unnatural. I would say nude and pink lips are the only OK lip colors to wear. I do believe every single woman looks better with a sheer nude och pink lip than red.
Bold statement, I know, but I 100% stand by it. I would stretch so far as light coral with a nude undertone with lots of shimmer for the summer when you are really tanned, but a part from that pink and nude is the way to go!

I love the L’oréal nude palette, the top color that’s light beige is gorgeous but the color that’s most taupe is the second up from the bottom. Btw, the lighest nude color in the palette is a dupe of this Kylie Cosmetics lipgloss, check out my post here to read more.

THE DEWY HIGHLIGHT LOOK

highlighter glow tutorialHi babes ♥
Since I haven’t been feeling well lately I have not been able to do any make up tutorials :(( I’m currently at home recovering.
I really miss creating make up looks and I have a few new products I wanna show you dolls. Anastasia glow palette among one of them!!

But until I feel better I wanted to do a post with some old throwback photos and details included!
The look I created on these photos I used a nude/pink shimmery eyeshadow from Sephora as a highlighter. I am always on the hunt to find the most amazing highlighter, I haven’t found my absolute favorite yet so until then I like to experiment.
Using a eyeshadow as a highlighter worked out so well and the texture was great to work with.

I used the same shadow as you all can see underneath my eyebrow and I just love the results.
The make up looks so much more defined when it is the same color around the eyes as on the cheekbones and around the eye brows.
When I did this make up look (I will post more photos later and close up photos) I actually used the same shadow as you all can see underneath my eyebrow and out towards my cheekbones, creating a lustrious effect all over the places where the sun naturally hits your face. Using the same color creates a real wow effect!
The make up looks so much more defined when using the same color for both under brow highlighting as well as for the cheekbones and over the brows.
I have never seen or read about this technique before, using the same color to make the look come together more, so remember where you read it first ladies ;))
I used the Real Techniques bold metals brush in silver to apply both the eye shadow underneath the eyebrows as well as to highlight my face. It has quickly become one of my all time favorite brushes!

MAKE UP VANITY

http://66.media.tumblr.com/2150d8facd28f74b19d34f3d01752d38/tumblr_objcwuOypP1tyr71uo1_1280.jpg
One of my goals is to one day have a vanity set up. I have imagined just how I want it to look and this would be the perfect place for me to do my make up work!
I just love those aryclic plastic organizer, like the ones Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian have from Cosmo Cube. I remember seeing the episode where you could see there organizers and I thought it looked so neat!
Also I love this post on how this girl did her vanity, so cute!

The problem for me however is that I want to see my make up clearly, at least the products that I use. I have different sections for unopened products and products I’m currently using, so I rather have my products on shelf’s or in a big organizer than just in a drawer like I have now! I would also love the desk to be in white marble, that would look so amazing.
A make up vanity is not really have difficult to put together, it is more the lack of space that usually gets in the way of creating your dream vanity. At least that’s been the main issues for me! Living in different countries and moving around a lot has definitely made it hard to decorate a place that feels like your own.

What you need to create a vanity

– A desk that is not too deep, you don’t want the mirror on the wall to be too far away from you so you can’t see properly
– Light bulbs around the mirror or preferably a led light, alternatively a ring light. You can find those on ebay!
– A comfy chair that matches the desk (of course!)
– Cute organizers in plastic or marble

Hi dolls!
Wanted to check in here just to say I’m alive. My health sucks right now, not a lot of energy atm. But I’m looking forward to spring and summer now. The ones that’s been reading my blog for years knows that I love the fall and winter but right now I can’t stand the thought of more cold days and dark nights. So over it.

A few things I want to write about more in upcoming weeks; Interior inspiration and tips, beauty treatments and guides, glowing and dewy make up looks and chic work out clothes <3

SNEAKERS FOR SPRING

gigi hadid yeezys
A pair of Yeezy boost sneakers has become a cult classic in most celebs wardrobes, for that chic off duty look it’s their go to shoe of choice.
Unfortunately for the rest of us mortals getting our hands on a pair might either be 1. Ridiculous expensive and you need to be a millionaire to afford a pair (I mean 2000-3000$ on ebay!?!) or 2. You camp outside a store that sell the Yeezyboost sneakers before they do the next stock up. But then you also need to live in one of the big cities in the US.
Yeah sounds pretty unlikely to me as well… So the options we got here are to find affordable sneakers with some major Yeezy vibes. The easiest brand to choose from would be Adidas since they are the once that make Yeezys, Nike also got a few good options.
Below you can see my fave ones, the sole is not as nice but hey they are at least “affordable”.
