Holidaze

Happy holidays! I wasn’t able to post until now because I’ve had a very hard time looking at the computer screen. I’ve always been sensitive to light, but even more so now that I’m suffering from chronic fatigue. There were also quite a few times where I wanted to take photos of either a makeup…

Happy New Year

First I must say a few words regarding my absence in December, it was such a busy month and left me with no time for makeup. I finally have a proper day off today, so I have to make the most of it and spend it creatively. I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve….

Biting into Christmas

I’m not feeling very christmassy this year, but I did try to infuse some of the season’s spirit into lip art. Red and sparkly gold are a combination typical for the last month of the year.

Poor Unfortunate Souls

With so many creative Halloween makeup looks on blogs and Instagram, I feel like I just have to contribute, even though the holiday isn’t officially celebrated here. There are, however, more and more Halloween inspired parties appearing every year. I’m not one for parties, but sometimes I wish I was, just so I could wear makeup…

What I love even more is the combination of gold and black. They couldn’t compliment each other any better, one with complete lack of light and perspective, and…

Shaping the Future

A while ago I entered a competition on Maybelline Slovenia’s Facebook page. The challenge was to use the imgination and create a futuristic look. When I think of the future, I always think of statement shapes with clean lines, and silver and purple when it comes to fashion and makeup, so I went with the later…

Lady in Red

I love dramatic looks. Not for everyday life, but every once in a while when I have extra time and feel motivated, I love bringing out my theatrical supplies and transforming myself into a new character. I bought this wig a few years ago and it’s been my favourite ever since. Combined with cabaret inspired makeup,…

I feel like myself the most when I don’t look like myself at all.

I haven’t done anything creative with my makeup in the longest time. I’ve been playing it safe by sticking to neutrals and shying away from colour, especially on my eyes. So I decided to get out of character for one day, and did a baby step out of my comfort zone by applying blue eyeliner and…
