Makeup trends 2012
Sorry I’ve haven’t blogged lately, but I have been busy with my last exam, and now I can officially call me a nurse:D
So this spring makeup- trends are many, here you have one of them:
Colormix: You probably heard that you shouldn’t mix colors, for example smokey eyes and red lips. Well, forget about that! Because now you can, but remember to do it in a ladylike way, so you don’t will look like a clown;)
According to a test panel from Norway, “Dior- Vernis” won the prize for best nailpolish. The panel tested consistency, how long time it takes to dry, prize and the size on the bottle. This is the results:
1: Dior- Vernis
2: Isadora- Wondernail
3: Loreal- Resist & Shine
4: Chanel- Le Vernis
5: Maybelline- Forever Strong
6: H&M- Nailpolish
7: OPI- Nail Lacquer
8: Maxfactor- Nailfinity
9: Viva La Diva
I think the christmas season it’s a good excuse to put on a little bit more makeup;) I love smokey eyes. And here you have my recipe;)
Step 1: Put on a thin layer of concealer on your eyelid
Step 2: Follow up with a basecoat eyeshadow up to your eyebrown
Step 3: Put on a eyeliner under your eye and smooth it out with a q-tip
Step 4: Use a brown or grey eyeshadow on your eyelid. Be careful so you wont get hard and significant transitions!
Step 5: Use a thin brush to add the same brown or grey eyeshadow under your eye (where the eyeliner is).
Step 6: Put on two layers of mascara (or fake lashes for a more dramatically look).
I like to look at different modelling pictures from great designers, and see how their makeup are. It’s a great inspiration, and I think it”s a good thing to change your look from time to time. Here are some of my favourites;

In my evening makeupbag you will find; Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Dior bronze, Dior Cannage couture còllection,Estèe Lauder brilliant shimmer, Maybelline the falsies volum 1 express mascara and eyeliner, Smashbox Photo Finish Lip Stick.

I’m a big fan of Smasbox. I feel their products has very good quality to a good prize. I have tried a lot of different foundations,and I always ends up with some acne after I’ve used it for a while. But not with the foundation from Smashbox. My skin love it! It’s such a good feeling to finally have found a product I can use. Their products are developed by professional makeup- artists from Smashbox studio in Los Angeles. I want to give you a little tip. If you press the link “get the look” on the homepage of smashbox, you can find different makeup looks to fit all your needs with step by step instructions! Btw; i love this look!
Nail polish- my addiction!
Okay, so this is the first post on my super cool blog. And I want to dedicate it to my addiction in life, nail-polish! I’m actually so addicted that my boyfriend doesn’t allow me to buy anymore (so now I’m asking my friends if they can buy it for me;))
Today I have selected a very pretty color from Gosh named “ocean 540”. I always start with a basecoat because then my nails wont get yellow after I have removed the nail polish, and the color will last longer. I have tried a lot of base- coats but my favorite is from Dior. It really makes the color last for a long time so I recommends this for all of you! I also recommend nail- block by Body shop. It’s a block with four different sides:
- Dark grey side files
- White side smoothes away ridges
- Black side buffs
- Pale grey side adds a natural-looking sheen
You can buy it from Body shops own homepage.
