5 makeup & beauty tips 

Hello everyone! This post will be scheduled, but right now I’m on the train on my way from my friend’s house. It will take an hour. So I mean, why not write another one of these blogposts then…? I’ve been asked to write more beauty & fashion as well: so here you go! 

Lorac Pro, MAC, Too faced, Urban Decay, Covergirl, the Balm & so it goes on, there are endlessly many great makeup brands out there. Although the makeup is good, it doesn’t necessary mean that the look you create will be a good one. It’s all about finding your own way of using what you have, to make your face look the best- if that’s what you are aiming for. Here are 5 makeup & beauty tips, that may or may not help you creating a better look:

1. If you have dry skin: mix your foundation together with a skin moisturiser. I do this in the winter, to keep my skin moisturised all the way through this cold season. The cold always tends to ruin my soft hands & skin. By mixing the foundation with a little moisturiser- will make such a big difference to you with dry skin. It will feel more like a tinted moisturizer but still give great coverage.

2. If you are too lazy to do your makeup everyday, but still want to look somewhat presentable; colour your eyelashes with a black color (specially for you eyelashes, I use one from Depend for example) – then bend your lashes with an eyelash curler: it will make a huge difference.

3. If you feel like your mascara is starting to dry out: put some eye drops in the mascara tube & run it under hot water from the tap, for a while. It really does help!

4. Applying a little highlighter to the top of your nose does lift up the whole appearance of your face. It brightens the look itself, makes you look both more awake & gives you a glowy finish- without looking like as if it is too much. Try it!

5. If you don’t want the most visible eyeliner ever- use a grey/ black eyeshadow to create the liner. This is what I do for my everyday makeup, it is easy & gives a very settle look.

Remember you are beautiful both with or without makeup. I hope you liked these tips, take care!

Rose shimmer makeup

Since the weather suddenly decided to go back to summer, from being all cold and fall-ish- I made today’s eye makeup look inspired by that. With rose shimmer colors.

Highlight- Naked Flushed palette 
Elf mineral eyeshadow- Sweet
Eyeshadow primer- Lorac behind the scenes eye primer
Lorac Pro eyeshadow palette 2 Colors: LT brown, Mocha, Cocoa & Beige
Brushes from Real Techniques, Åhléns, H&M, Urban Decay & Ecotools
Lipstick Estée Lauder Candy Shimmer 16

Start with applying a thin coat of an eyeshadow primer over your lids. This, to make the colors stand out more & make them last longer as well.

With the damp Urban Decay brush, I put the ELF mineral eyeshadow all over my lid. Then I used the bigger blending brush, from Åhléns, to blend the light brown (LT brown) in the decrease. To make the look darker, I used the purple real techniques brush with the color Mocha, in the end of my eye lid. To darken the look even more, I put the Coca color over Mocha with the rounded H&M brush. Then I used the fluffy blending brush to even everything out- you don’t want any harsh lines in this makeup look.

I once again applied a coat of the ELF mineral eyeshadow, mainly focusing on putting it on the center of my eye lid. Then I use the light Beige color from the Lorac palette, to put on the inner corners of my eyes.

I highlight my eyes, by applying the very pretty highlighter from the Naked Flushed palette, in the corners of my eyes & under the eyebrows. This gives a lighter touch to the whole look.

I finish of my makeup by putting on mascara, I am currently using the Lancome Hypnose Drama. It’s a really good, but pricey, mascara.

I hope you liked this quick & short little makeup tutorial, I absolutely love makeup & will continue doing blogposts like this.
