Wearable Makeup Trends 2019 – Graphic Colored Eyeliner

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and contains products I received via PR, marked by an *. I was not paid to write this blog post/film the video. Please read disclaimer. I am the first one to put up my hand and admit that the previous video in the series „Wearable Makeup Trends 2019“ was far from being an actual challenge.  Soft eyes, red lips – I wear that any given day, no matter if it is on trend or not. So for today’s look, I figured I´d…

Quick and easy everyday makeup for winter 2019

This blog post uses affiliate links and contains *PR-Samples, so it qualifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. For me winter in terms of makeup starts when Christmas is over – Holiday makeup is a whole category of its own. (Although it has similarities – see here) So when January came, I sat down and rummaged through my stash to rediscover products I used to love, but that somehow got pushed aside for other stuff. Because, as I said here, I am guilty of abandoning my favorites for things that actually…

New Pixi Eyeshadow Palettes Natural Beauty and Reflex Light – Review and Swatches

This blog post contains PR-Samples and uses affiliate links, so it classifies as advertisement. I was not paid to talk about the products. Please read disclaimer. I admit I filmed a video and needed to add a separate sequence at the end a week later that partly counteracted what I had said in the video.     Not very professional, eh? But in my defense, I wanted to get a review of the new Pixi Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes up quickly, and I knew I only had one spot for filming…

Wearable Makeup Trends 2019 – Easy eyes, red lips

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Makeup trends – I can´t be the only one that keeps looking them up, but struggles to incorporate them into their actual routine. Don’t get me wrong, I do wear more makeup than the average woman, but what looks gorgeous on a 20 something on the runway doesn’t necessarily flatter a 40 something doing the groceries.     But seeing that I am stuck in kind of a makeup rut, I decided to challenge myself and see if I can actually…

Day to night makeup tutorial using affordable products

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. I think it is well established by now that I don’t have much of a social life. But I do remember a time when I had, a life when a spontaneous invitation for after work drinks or even a date could happen. And I remember how hard it was to look fresh and glammed up with a ten hours work day under your belt.     I watched countless day to night makeup tutorials on You tube, but I…

My quick and easy travel makeup tutorial

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer Welcome back! To me, after a two week holiday spend in Norway and Sweden. And to you, dear reader, after a two week blogging hiatus. Surprisingly, the world didn’t stop turning when I stopped blogging, and it was very refreshing to not worry for once about internet connection.     Which can, you might have guessed it, be a little hard to come by in the more remote corners of Norway. Of course, me stopping to blog did not…

Quick makeup for mothers

I often get asked why I wear make-up on a daily base. After all, I spend most of my days at home, looking after the Little Bean and typing away on my laptop. So apart from the postman stopping by, who should care? Well, it is simple. I do. Putting on make-up gets me started, the same way a quick shower and brushing my teeth does. I feel put together, ready to conquer the day, ready to get something done. Of course, I by no means put on a full…
