NEW IN! Bobbi to go: Classic eye palette

Yayy, I received this yesterday and I’m already loving this palette without having tried out all the colours “in action” yet!  The Palette contains of 8 shades, 5 of which are matte, 2 shimmer and 1 glitter. The colours are gorgeous, oand if you know Bobbi Brown makeup, you know it’s good quality! Its a small palette, and it’s easy to bring with you everywhere, whenever – I’m guessing that’s the reason for the “On the go”.

IMG_0085There’s a little makeup brush with the palette too. The bristles are really soft, but I personally would only use it on the go, since I have better fitted brushes at home.

The shades are swatched top row first, then bottom. Both from left to right. In the photo to the left it starts from the bottom and up (if you hadn’t realized it yourself). I can’t wait to have some more fun with this palette! All the shades have really good colour payoff (even the glittery one. I have tried glitter ones before that took a lot of work if you wanted a close to opaque coverage). The texture is really smooth, it colours come on evenly and they blend really well. Yay! The only bad thing I have to say about this is actually the size (which at the same time is a good thing), because I’m afraid I’ll run out of these gorgeous eye shadows too soon!

Summer and eyebrows

IMG_0078

Hey! I wanted to give you another update. This weekend I actually had time to go out and celebrate my finals almost being over. My study had arranged a nice summer party, where everybody brings food and have fun in the midst of all of the exam-panic. I brought a nectarine and brie salad, as it turns out, it is really delicious! Lately I have noticed how different my brows are. it bothers me when I look at it in photos, but I don’t see it when I just look in the mirror. I think I have to invest in some brow wax. Any good suggestions?

Mid-finals post: Hair care haul

Oh how I’ve missed blogging! I can’t wait for the holidays to begin. By then I’ll have more time! Yay! Right now I’m preparing for my next final’s test, it’s this friday, but I couldn’t help myself, I had to show you my recent hair care haul from Nicehair. Here are pictures of all the things I’ve bought. Hopefully I’ll get time to tell you about every single thing in not too long. Until then, feel free to ask me what the products are (if you can’t see it in the photos) or what my experience has been with them so far.

Break!

Okay! Just wanted to let you know that I’m taking a break blogging during my finals. I really wanted to keep blogging, but I don’t feel like I have the time to make posts that I’m satisfied with. I’ll be back, no doubt, and I can’t wait to have time to blog again. In the mean time you can check out my Instagram here to see FOTDs and more!

Birthday Look!

This past saturday it was my birthday! I turned 22! Yay.. but now I don’t need to get any older ;).
I spent the day celebrating my grandmother who turned 75 the same day. In the evening I went out with some friends and colleagues, and in general I had a really good day/night – that’s how it’s supposed to be, right?
So I wanted to show you what look I thought fitting for the occasion, and if you know me well enough you’ll already have guessed it by now.
IMG_0074Yes! Golden eyes yet again! This time paired with red lips to make it a little more spring-like and to make it wearable for nighttime as well. I also made a french braid to keep the hair away from my face. Hope you’ve all had a nice weekend!

Purple Spring

IMG_0073It seems I have made purple the shade of this season!

I have to apologize for the lack of posts, I have been and am crazy busy. Also the weather here has been insanely good! I’ve already been out in a bikini! In April!!! Still I think you should at least know what I have looked like while I’ve been this busy 😉
I did a purple glitter and shimmery light pink look with no eyeliner – because I like eyeliner-free looks for warmer weather.
As you may be able to see I’ve started getting freckles – it’s a reoccurring  thing, and they appear every year as soon as it gets a little sunny.

IMG_0072*Notice the great view of my bathroom and laundry, lol!

Doing Caroline’s makeup

DSC_0088

This friday I went out.. for real, and it’s been quite a while since last time I did that. I went out with a really good friend of mine whom I’ve known since elementary school. Her name is Caroline and she has gorgeous green eyes and the craziest lashes (no, I didn’t use falsies – just one layer of mascara). Some time ago she spotted someone wearing a silver smokey eye (someone with red hair like herself), and wanted to try it out, so I was the lucky chosen one for that job (yay!). I’m actually not too familiar with doing makeup on others but I’ve always wanted to so it was a real pleasure doing it. As it turns out I feel pretty confident doing it again another time. It went really well if I may say so myself, and I believe she was happy with it too (which in the end, is the most important thing).

What do you think of it?
