Color week Fail! =(

So I've failed color week! =( But I have reasons for it though..First - yesterday I fogot my camera when i went to see my family so I couldn't take any pictures of what I wore.. Second - I think I've come done with the flue or something today, I'm just not feeling all that great so make up is not something I'm thinking about..

So color week is incompleted.. Hopefully next time I decide to try it I won't fail ^^ anyways I'm gonna snuggle up on the coutch now!

Favourite online- shopping stores..

As I'm sure a lot of you are I'm also kinda' addicted to online shopping ^^ especially when there's so many great ones out there.. And for me it can be very hard to find a lot of the brands here in sweden so I have to rely on online stores for brands like Urban decay, Benefit, Illamasqua and on and on and on ^^ Also nailpolish is really expensive here so when I want to buy OPI or China Glaze or whatever I can buy it A LOT cheaper online, just to give you an example -> OPI online = around $6 and OPI here in sweden= 130kr=$20.09... It's Crazy!!

So that's why I thaught  I would share some of my favourite online stores with you guys =)

This is where i get all of my OPI & China Glaze polishes and they also have Essie and Orly.. For 9 polishes I pay $20 in shipping which means I pay around 9*$6=$54+$20=$74 = 478.78kr.. Instead of 9*130kr=1170kr..  They also have a lot for Nail Artistry =)

Barry M
The british drugstore brand with the awesome nailpaints, as they call them.. Both their make up (dazzle dusts) and nail polish (nail paints) are great!

OC Nail art
My supplier of konad stuff ^^

Make up:
All Cosmetics Wholesale
This is by far the best online store to get discontinued products from brands like MAC, YSL, Smashbox, Chanel, Lancome and on and on =) they also have products from the permanent collections of course..

Cherry Culture
My go to NYX and Milani provider ^^ They ship everywhere and fast and also often have special offers like buy 1 get 1 free and stuff like that..

British High end brand with just great products! large selection of colors and I love their brushes!

MAD Minerals
Great selection of colors even in foundation.. Great budget mineral make up! =)

If anyone of you have missed the sigma train (i bet none of you have but anyways) go and check out their brushes, great brushes for a great price!.. they have a lot of kits, my favourite is the Naughty in Black travel kit, cuz it has every brush you need.. =)

HQ Hair
British website that sells make up, haircare, skincare etc. has a large selection of brands..

British website that sells great clothes, accessories, shoes, make up, skincare, haircare, just anything you might think of ^^ often has great sales!

who doesn't love H&M???

A swedish site that sells clothes from a lot of swedish designers.. I think they only ship within scandinavia, not sure though..

So there you have it.. My faves =) Please le me know if you have a favourite online store that I haven't mentioned here, I love finding new places to shop ;)

Color week - Begins tomorrow!!

Ok so, I got this idea from a blog I'm following (and i can't for the life of me find wich one it was, i'm  sorry!) and she did a lipstick week challange, every day she had to wear a different color lipstick in different color categories.. So I thaught that was fun and I wanted to do something similar but different.. SO i decided that a color week would be fun.. Basically I will wear some kind of  brighter color every day for a week, it can be a pink lip, a blue eyeliner, a green eyeshadow, just anything like that.. I'm really exhited =) I hope I'll make it ^^
Maybe someone allready done something like this and I just haven't seen it, but if you liked this idea feel free to jump on the wagon =)

Tomorrow it begins!

A few things that should help with your skin..

A common problem that many have with their skin is that even though you clean your face every night your skin doesn't clear up.. These tips might help if you have that problem! =) These are things anyone should be doing, no matter skintype!

 First of all make sure you use products that's specially designed for your skintype.. Dry skin needs a bit more oil(sometimes a lot) than combination skin, and oily skin often need no extra oil (doesn't mean you should dry out your skin, drying out your skin only fools your skin to produce more oil)..
Second, after you used a cleanser (gel, cream, mousse whatever) use a face cloth, do not use your towel that you wipe your hands with, it's full of nasty stuff ^^
Third, ALLWAYS use a toner to clean up any makeup particles that wasn't cleansed off with the cleanser, and to prepare your skin for your moisturizer. IF you don't usually do this, DO. If you don't do it your moisturizer will lock in the particles that wasn't cleansed off, and it will do it's damage to the skin .. I can't stress enough how imortant this is! It's also important to wipe your face with a toner in the morning before you put your moisturizer and makeup on. The skin picks upp particles from your pillow and so on during the night..

Now, a brand that I really love is ORIGINS.. Their products are just beautiful and are 100% natural, so you don't need to worry about weird chemicals and so on.. I have combination/oily skin and I use the Origins Balanced diet moisturizer, it's made to keep your oily areas under control but at the same time keep the dry areas moisturized, I use it morning and night.. This really works for me, my skin has never been better, and I suffered from acne when I was a teenager.. If you are unsure of what skintype you have just ask the ladies at the counters (any skincare brand) and they will help you..

So I hope this was helpful =)

MAC Soirée Nail laquer

Another goodie from the Cham-pale collection that sold out in an instant (no wonder) is the Soirée Nail laquer.. It has a frost finish and a gorgeous pretty opaque color, rosy/gold/champange/bronze with light frost.. I love this color, its lika a more fun but still kind of natural color.. It's similar to  the let me pop paint pot just not as coppery, more champange =)

 If your are a fan of the Naked Pigment from MAC this Nail laquer is pretty much the same color, just a little bit less rosy and again more champange =) YES it is as metallic as it looks in the picture to the right =)

MAC Let me pop Paint Pot

When MAC came out with the Cham-pale collection I was so excited to check out the eyeliners and the paint pots. I LOVE paint pots! I was kinda' dissapointed though.. The Paint pots weren't as pigmented and opaque as they usually are, they were more sheer and the colos were not that special.. But I just couldn't help myself falling for the Let Me Pop one ^^ Gorgeous copper/gold/rose/blonze glitter.. Just beautiful!

Hi Everyone!

So I decided to start my own beauty blog. I follow so many others but this way I can  write about what I want and what I want to share about anything beauty related =)

I am a certified Makeup artist living and working in Stockholm Sweden. I love playing with colors and challange  my artistic side..

So I hope you enjoy! <3
