FALL. It’s funny how a little bit of red lipstick can transform your look + mood, it definitely is one of the best and least expensive beauty investments a girl can make! Can’t wear heels at the moment due to some mean back pain I’ve been suffering from for a while so I decided to go with 40′s inspired hair + makeup to make the look a little bit more interesting, love the way it turned out! Lately I’ve been a lot of comments/emails about what makeup I use so I’ll try to make a post about it later this week. And if anyone was wondering, the lipstick I’m wearing is “Lady Danger” from MAC!

LOVE. Finally got my hands on the lovely Chanel Peridot after months of waiting!! All the other nail polishes I own kind of pales in it’s presence, honestly can’t see myself wearing anything else this fall. The way this beetle hued masterpiece reflects light.. pure perfection!

LOVE. After traveling for 15 hours straight, I’m back on swedish grounds again! I’m leaving for Milan on monday morning and have tons of clothes to wash + pack until then. Just wanted to do a quick post of the 50′s inspired hair + makeup look that the insanely talented hair/makeup artist Lavoisier did on me for the shoot I did last tuesday. Oh how I wish I could look like this everyday, but alas, I’m too lazy to curl my hair and put on fake lashes every morning

One thing I’m definitely going to steal from this look though is the amazing lipstick called ‘Lady Danger’ from Mac. Probably the most perfect shade of bright red I’ve tried so far! I’ll post more backstage pictures tomorrow, now I’m going to get myself some well needed sleep!
