Inspired by...

Feeling pretty inspired by Keith Richards at the mo. He seems to like mixing leopard, polka dots, glitter and some "darker" stuff such as skulls, just like I do. My mom says you can't mix black and white stripes with a leopard scarf, well I think you can and apparently Mr. Richards thinks the same. Yay.

My best tanning products

Easy and cancer free :-)
Rimmel Sun Shimmer is an instant tan wash off. Apply a generous layer on body. It's important that you wash your hands immediately after use! I have to use a body scrubb to get it off my hands. I use the Light Matt (not Light Matt with shimmer). It gives the darkest color out of the three products. Don't apply to your face.

Tan-In-A-Can. The product is not for an all over body treatment. Use it on specific areas such as face and neck. It's really easy to use. It's a Danish product.

Dove Summer Glow is a body lotion with a hint of self tanning agents. It gradually builds a light tan. It's important that you apply a generous layer or else you will end up with lines! I let it set for an hour before I put clothes on, just in case. I use Fair to Normal Skin.

New Years Eyes Tutorial

I love everything dazzling, so why not add a little on the eyes? New Years is the perfect opportunity to overload your eyes with sparkles. I like Barry M's fine glitter dust, but for a really over the top look, mix it with Barry M's loose powder.

I uploaded a tutorial on my youtube channel here. It's in DANISH! But I added the product list below in english. You don't have to use the same products I used. Any silver, foundation etc. will do.

P.S like myself in photos, hate myself in videos!

Products used:
Moisturize your face!
Chanel Pro Lumière #10.

After the eye makeup has been done:
MAC Select Moistercover #NW20 (under the eyes and on blemishes).
Helena Rubinstein Illumination #01 Translucent (under the eyes, on top of MAC's).

Clarins Poudre Éclat Quick Glow Puff Powder (On cheeks, forhead, back of the nose, chin, neck, ears).
Chanel Joues Contrasre #97 Divine (only on the apply of my cheeks).
Lancaster Sunlight Palette #Natural (the white colour. Used as highlighter on the cheek bones).
After you have finished, dap Scotch Tape wherever you have glitter.

Maybeline Color Definer (waterproof) #10 Fascination white (As a base, so the glitter has something to stick to).
Dana Beauty Single Eyeshadow #3 (silver) (on top of the base).
Revlon Eyeshadow Quad #Sultry Smoke (create a V-shape in the outer corner with the darkest colour, apply to 1/3 of the eyelid).
Barry M Fine Glitter Dust #1 (Press it on top of the silver eyeshadow).
H&M lipgloss i neutral farve (a little goes far, on top of the FGD, use as base for the Loose Body Glitter).
Barry M Loose Body Glitter #8 (Press it onto the eyelid).
Maybeline Eye definer Eyeliner Noir (close to teh lash line, if you don't have small eyes like me, apply on the lower lash line too).
Lancaster Sunlight Palette #Natural (Again, use the white colour under the browbone, blend in with Revlon's dark colour).
Maybeline Define-A.Last Mascare #sort (loads).

I want the focus to be on the eyes, so I chose a light coloured lipgloss.
Chanel VitalumièreTeint Compact Crème Eclat Jeuness #20 Clair-Cameo (to block out any natural lip color).
L'Oreal Glam Shine Crystals #301 Coral Strass
GoshCrystal Eyes Eye Pencil #Sparkling Pearl (on the Cupid-bow, to make your lips look fuller).

Makeup tutorials

Merry christmas everyone! Hope you are enjoying yourselves. I just want to tell you, that I've started recording makeup tutorials in Danish. However, I will be listing the products I use and a how-to guide in english. So far I've done two, one for blue eyes and a new years look. My internet is rather slow at the mo, so It will take a couple of days befor they are online.

I'm not a makeup artist, nor claiming to have great skills. I just love makeup and thougth I'll share some tips with you. If I can, you can :-)

Makeup tips for eyes

I am not a professional makeupartist, I just love makeup. But I stille thought I would share some makeup tips with you.

Blue eyes:
When you choose eyeshadow for blue eyes, it's best to choose colours that will contrast with your natural eye color. Shades of brown, orange, copper, plum, taupe, blacks, charcoal, pink, violet, lilac, silver or gold would be the best choice for blue eyes and will help blue eyes appear even bluer. Blue shades wont enhance the beauty of your blue eyes, unless it is super dark blue.

Green eyes:
Again contrast is good to keep in mind. Plum is really good, deep purple, mauve, pink, dark gray, charcoals, all shades of brown, black. Greens are not the best choice, if you wanna bring out the green eye colour.

Brown eyes:
Deep shades of blue, plum, gold, vanilla, shades of purple and violet, nutmeg would be the best choice for brown eyes. Metalic in gold, bronze, browns and pinks help brown eyes stand out in the most attractive way. Shades lighter than your eyes give your eyes natural look while darker shades will bring your eyes dramatic look. Three tones of eyeshadow are better.

How to apply:
1. Apply light tones eyeshadow from lash to brow. Use neutral eyeshadow.

2. Apply medium-toned eyeshadow in the crease and blend up to the brow bone.

3. Apply dark eyeshadow on outer corner of the eyelid.

4. Apply a bit of white, mother of pearl og a white-shimmery shadow in the inner corners of your eyes, to make them look brighter. If you want to emphasize your brows, apply the same colours under the middle to the outer corner of your brows.

5. Line the wet side of your lower lash line with a white, cream or very soft yellow to open your eyes.

6. Apply mascara on upper and lower lashes.

If you have small eyes like me, I wont recommend lining your upper AND lower lash line with black or any very dark colour. It will make them look smaller. If you do want to line the lower lash line, do it under your lashes (if that makes sense) and with a soft line such as an eyeshadow or smudge your liner.

Spray-in Hair Lightener

Merry christmas and happy chanukah!

A friend of mine in Denmark told me sha had a positive experience with a spray-in hair lightener from, I think, Poly Blonde. I thought I would give it a go and bought SunIn's spray with lemon. They don't recommend it for colour treated, recently permed, very dark brown, black or grey hair (no pigments). Dark brown and black hair might turn redish. As I have dark blonde hair I thought my hair would turn blonder, like in the summer time. However, I think it turned redish. Many have noticed that the colour has changed (so that part did work out), but some agreed with me on the blonde with a redish look/shine part. Not really sure how to feel about this. My mom has a very light form of ginger hair and in periodes my hair tend to have a redish shine to it. But still, the instructions on the can told me that only dark hair could turn red. I have used it at least 5 times. Maybe I should keep going on... or maybe I will turn in to Rihanna. Another thing is, that my hair has become very problematic to coam after shower. I blame the spray, but who knows.

You might be able to see a bit of the red colour in this picture.
