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!

cream shadow/liner duo, smashbox. Lipstick, Wet’n'wild no 901B

MAKEUP. I get lots of emails from people wondering what kind of makeup I use. Well, I’m by no means an expert but what the heck! Yesterday I found this awesome cream shadow liner duo from smashbox that I absolutely love! It’s perfect for creating soft, smoky eyes and the best part is that you don’t have to be a brush wizard to handle this baby, just use your fingers and it will look awesome! The color duo I’m wearing is called Slate but they have a bunch of other color combinations that I’m dying to try aswell.

As I said in the beginning of this post, I’m no makeup pro at all but I know what I like, so if you want more makeup tips in the blog, let me know and I’ll try to post more about my personal favorites!
