Tis been a while etc etc…

So my plan backfired…lol I thought I´d have time and inspiration to get back here but it has taken me a coupple of months. Sowwy! 😉 So last time I promised to show something from the new stuff I got from Kiko´s in Paris. Here´s my latest nails where I used color nr 373 from Kiko over the entire nail and just added a lil spark on the outer/upper corner. Such a easy way to add a little zazz on an ordinary polish! Hope you´ll enjoy! And that you missed me! ;P

Time for this weeks nails; Fierce Fire

This week I was all clear about what to do. A fierce fire gradient. Now I’m in the tram on my way to work with a latte in my hand and my nails burning in the sun! I’m looking forward to another day of dance performances (students)! Hope you all will enjoy this weeks nails!

Nails of the week; Nude Stripes

Time for this weeks nails! I just finished a nude mani with a striped accent nail. I painted all fingers but the ring finger in a taupe/beige colour. I used a polish from Kiko however the number is worn off… Then I painted my ring fingers in a white colour, this one is from Depend. To get the right coverage I painted three coats with both polishes. After that “foundation” I used tape in different widths to cover my ring fingernails where I wanted them to be white. I painted two coats of the nude colour over and let it dry before taking the tape off carefully. Then I added some silver glitter as a finishing touch before coating all nails with Seche Vite dry fast top coat. Voilá! I hope you enjoy!

The favourite lipglosses?!

Everybody loves lipglosses right? I´ve always been a lipstick girl and am really happy that lipstick is back on the scene again, however nothing beats the lightness and easyness of a good lipgloss right? I thought I´d share some of my favourites at the moment with you guys. Feel free to respond with your favourites, I´d love to hear what you guys use and love too!

My absolute favourite right now is this pink lipgloss from Goldbear (nr 6). It is soooo priceworthy and really has a high gloss without shimmer to it, a look that I love.

Another favourite is the richly shimmery lipgloss from MAC´s Marilyn Monroe Collection fall 2012. It´s opposite of the Goldbear with it´s shimmer and is perfect for evening wear, alone or ontop of a gorgeous lipstick/pen.

Clarin´s Colour quench lip balms has always been a favourite for as long as I remember. It´s something about how it feels on the lips. So smooth and just nice. 🙂 They come in lovely colours too, with Sweet Papaya being my alltime favourite.

I always keep a coupple of H&M glosses arround too, both clear (those are perfect over lipsticks, alone or to be blended with your favourite eyeshadow) and tinted ones. I like the easy access of H&M products and their glosses actually have rather high quality for it´s price.

These are just a few of all lipgloss that´s in my life/makeupbag…lol I might share others at another time. For now theese are my toplist! 🙂 So what´s your lipgloss toplist?

The makeup for today: a perfect eyeliner

I´ve had an urge for a perfect eyeliner for the past days. You know a deep black, bold statement liner. So today I went for it. I matched it up with soft pinks and peaches to keep it neutral enough to wear for work (danceclasses).

Base: BB cream nr 2 from Leezi, loose powder also from Leezi, bronze powder H&M

Blush: a peach coloured blush from an unknown asian brand

Eyes: the pink shadow from Nouba quattro nr 628 over the entire eyelid, then I swept the peach blush over the crease and outer corner of eye. Eyeliner from Vsoya and mascara from L´Oreal. I used browpen nr 3 from Populart on my brows.

Lips: Lipgloss Innocent from H&M

Whilst we´re at eyeliners, have any of you tried on the sticker eyeliners that are out there now? I am übersceptic… I think I stick to the liquid ones!
