Day 17.

Not your typical winged liner. I decided to smoke it out. Did it turn out exactly how I wanted? No. But I'm still happy enough with it So I can share it here.

H&M Brush Cleanser Spray

2018-09-11 18:55
Från Trickmetolife

Look. I'm going to be honest:
I suck at cleaning my makeup brushes. Luckily I'm just using them on myself for the moment. But yeah.. they're nasty sometimes. That's why I like a brush cleanser spray! I've tried a couple of different ones in the past. and well. They do their work.

If you've ever sat besides me when I do makeup you will know I do one thing that sometimes throw people off, and honestly I don't care! I usually sit in my old af broken comfy pants, and when I apply makeup and are switching between colors I swipe it off on my pants, Or a clean towel if I have that. it works great! and it's instead for that sponge wheel everyone is raving about all the time. it just works for me. but sometimes I do get a stubborn color, or just need to freshen up one of the face brushes and then one of these cleanser sprays is perfect to have!
And it's also really great to have if you're a MUA that are doing several models makeup at the same time and don't have enough brushes and need to clean them between them.

And this time it happened to be H&M's that I got. mostly because I was in there looking at he NYX display and saw this one on a shelf nearby and got reminded that I needed one of these. That's basically how I work. I buy things on impulse 99.9% of the time.

It's your usual spray bottle, nothing fancy really. but it works great so why change it, right?
it's a 100 ml (3.4 fl.Oz) a perfect travel size, overall an okay size to be honest. I've had one that was a big spray bottle, and even though the spray itself was good the bottle was awkward for me to hold with my baby hands and it was a pain to bring with me.
it is suitable for both synthetic and real hair brushes. so that's always a nice thing.

and let me tell you; this smells like something from mu childhood! I can't put my finger on WHAT it smells, but it gives me flashbacks to when I was young, And I'm not mad at that at all! I like it. I've seen many say that they love the smell, and it is really nice. not over whelming or anything.

it dries pretty quickly, and if you're anything like me who wipes them off on a towel (or your comfy pants) it will help the brushes to dry in between

Naturallt you can find this on H&, in store or on their website for 49.90 SEK.

DMC Day 16: Go To Makeup Look

Day 16.

This is basically my go to look. a neutral smokey eye with liner and lashes, and if I feel like it; some fun lips.
This isn't my particular go to products. but I wanted to show that I can use basically whatever to get the result I want. and i also felt like playing with the Too Faced Sweet Indulgence palette that I otherwise never touch, at least the eye shadows, the blushes I use quite a lot.

OPI Nail Lacquer - I Carol about you

2018-06-09 12:00
Från Trickmetolife

I got this beautiful purple polish at a sale for 19 sek. Apparently I was lucky since it was a part of Gwen Stefanis collection in 2014. So I don't know if it's still available..

This one is so hard to capture on picture, because it's this deep purple with a subtle shimmer to it, and you can only see in when the light hits it perfectly. So when you have it on your nails it looks like it's glowing a bit.
One coat is good enough to cover, but I like putting on two.

Isadora Blush & Glow Draping Wheel - Peachy Rose Pop

2018-06-07 16:51
Från Trickmetolife

I'm pretty sure I'm very behind on this. but you know what?
I don't care!

For you who don't know:
Isadora is a Swedish makeup brand that are fragrance free, cruelty free, clinically tested and kind of affordable. I mean, there is cheaper brands, and there are more expensive brands. In Sweden Isadora is classified as a "drug store" brand that you can find in most bigger stores.
I bought this one at H&M For example!

If you follow my Instagram you might have seen when I shared this the first time, and that I said that I grabbed it because of the highlighter, because it was so similar to Too Faced Champagne truffle that I love to use as a highlighter. I even shared a comparison between the colors and even threw in Sugarpills Wink in the mix.
And even though Champagne truffle is a little more pink, this is not far off, and I really like how it looks on my face.
and I've used it several times on my blog (here & here), and on my Instagram.

Even though I bought this for the highlighter I do really like the blushes The two matte ones are the colors I am drawn too when I do my makeup. and sometimes I do spice it up by putting the pearl ones on top of the mate blushes. That way you get the more natural glow from within, than just *BAM* SPARKLES! if you know what I mean?

the compact is quite big, for me at least, since it's way bigger than the palm of my hand, but then again; I have baby hands. but considering you get 4 blushes and 1 highlighter I'm not complaining. and it's a nice travel compact. I do however wish that they would've put in a contouring powder. but since this palette is all about draping, and not contouring I do understand why they haven't.


Draping, what is that?
Well. it's kinda contouring, but at the same time not. the meaning here is that you will take the darkest blush and "drape" it underneath your cheekbones from the apples up to your sears ans swoop it up to the temples, if I've understood it right, And then you take the lighter blush and drape in onto your cheeks in the same manner. and then you apply your highlighter.
And judging from the picture on the back of the compact (and to the right of this text) it will give that classic 80's look. which can look cool to some looks. I might have to try this one day tbh..

Swatches

As you can see, the colors are beautiful, and they're really smooth, and pigmented! a little goes a long way with these in my opinion. that's why I like to apply blush with a small kabuki brush, because it blends it out beautifully as you apply it.

I know they've come out with a few new colors on the wheels, But I have only seen pictures of them so far, so I don't know if I will be getting those too. But so far I'm really happy with this.

Now, for pricing? like I said, I bought mine at H&M and I honestly just grabbed it and went to the register and don't even remember what I paid (since I also had some other things) but from a little googling irt seems that the price of these is around 229 sek depending on where you buy it.

And I also noticed that you can buy these from Walgreens if you live in America. But from what I can understand you can only order them online for now. And they cost $25 there.

Don't mind this

Yellow is such an underestimated color.

So I decided to play with it a bit. Because I don't think I've ever done an all yellow look before.
The lips were an experiment. I wanted to smudge out the edges like I've seen some people do. But I don't think this product was the best for it.

THIS POLISH IS GORGEOUS!
Second:
I'M SO SORRY!

Okay. Noe that I've gotten that out of the way; Let me tell you about this polish.
Apparently it was a part of Gwen Stefanis collection with OPI in 2014(!!) so what I know it's not available any more, and I'm so sorry for that!
I was lucky and found this on RUSTA here in Sweden for 19 Sek ($2.32) right before Christmas, or was it after? Around Christmas/New years at least!

It's hexagonal glitter in various sizes and colors n it. mostly blues and black. but also gorgeous oranges and some that shifts into green. it really looks like what I imagine comets tails are made of. Although I'm pretty sure comets don't have glitter as their tails. but a girl can wish right?

I went almost all in on this as you can see.. I was going to do whiskers and all that, but decided on just the eyes.
I used Black Friday's makeup as an inspiration and went from there. I'm just sad that I don't have my cat eye contacts anymore because that would've been fun to have in.

Fun fact; I actually have two pair of cat years that I use (not both at the same time) when I put my makeup on, mostly to get all my hair out of my face. but yeah haha!

I'm well aware that my Septum ring is crooked, and I'm so sorry for that.

Hello!
Yes, I changed up my hair. And I decided to do it in the middle of the night because I was bored with it and wanted something new. Something I've never really have had. Which is a straight fringe. And considering I did it myself in the bathroom mirror, in the middle of the night with crappy lighting, it's not bad! Surely, there's some mistakes in it. but I'm pretty sure that people won't see it unless I point it out to them. Now I basically just need to freshen up my roots, and the color over all, since I haven't touched it since September/October. now I have to do is just getting used to the fringe, which is a lot easier to say than do haha!

The makeup is a burgundy type of deal with some glitter pigment that I dug up from my collection; glitter liner and a smoked out lower lash line, YUM!

Från Trickmetolife

I rarely do any nail art at all. mostly because my nails are so small, even when they have length, like now, That it's almost impossible to do anything on them.
This gradient is a good example. I've used three colors here ( Glam of Sweden no.52, Kicks Sangria and Zoya Rehka) And you can barely see the lightest color that's just on my tip. Oh and before anyone starts: I'm really bad at cleaning up my nails, And I don't have any of those fancy liquid latex thingies that you can paint around your nail to make clean up easier. So I've used used a trusty ol' Q-tip with nail-polish remover and carefully tried to get rid of as much as possible.

I was feeling rather dark and mysterious, and couldn't decide if I wanted dark red nails, which have been my go to lately, or black nails. So I decided to do a gradient. And I like it, even though i wanted more of the lighter red to show up, but hey you have to work with what you got, right? :)


HallonLakrits is Raspberry licorice that we have here in Sweden. I don't know if they do this in other places in the world. But here they take raspberry flavored candy and put it together with licorice. Most notoriously is the lollipops you got as a kid when your family ordered pizza and you followed them to pick it up, and also Bubs skulls that also is split, like the lollipops. It's kinda the only licorice I eat, because licorice is really one of those Required taste kinda deals. If you're ever in Sweden, or Scandinavia overall, you should try it. some love it, some don't. That was the fun facts of today haha!

However, I DO think it was meant to be, since it's St. Patrick's day today! how fitting isn't that?!
This look is Sugarpill heavy, but that is no surprise to everyone who has been following me for a while, Since I LOVE Sugarpill eye shadows, and especially the green ones.
And if I remember correctly, This is the first time I used the green one from their Electrocute collection.
Which also is the reason I'm sparkly all over in the photos and the video.

This is a look from 4 o'clock in the morning.

I don't know how or why, but it always ends up like that when I'm trying to make a video. It's quite frustrating, But hey! at least I got pictures of it!

Lemon Lime

2018-03-11 11:57
Från Trickmetolife

I love lemon. I can eat it raw, and I do do that occasionally. this is something I've done since I was a kid. and that is actually quite a funny story.

But first let me tell you about the nail polishes: it's nothing fancy, It's Glam of Sweden No. 176, No.175 and a tiiinsy tiny bit of No.52 with Seche Vite on top.
Loved the turnout, and it made me muster after summer, even tho we have really pretty snow here at the moment! (like 50 cm high! (19in) but i made do and just made me a lemon lime drink and posed with one of the limes hehe.

Now, the story:

As a kid I LOVED Pippi Longstocking! I mean, what's not to like? She's a super strong kid that can lift her own horse! and lives alone in Villa Villekulla with her pet monkey! And she goes on to these awesome adventures With Tommy and Annika I mean COME ON! she's plain awesome!
And because I basically was obsessed with her I wanted to be as strong as her to! and one day when my moms friend Marie was to visit us, she told me that if I wanted to be as strong as Pippi, I had to eat raw lemon. And thus my obsession with lemon started. I just found out a couple of years ago from mom that Marie probably lured me into eating raw lemons because she loved eating raw lemons and people were being weird about it, and now she had a lemon buddy haha! but yeah. everything I can have lemon on, I basically will have it on, and I also drink a lot of lemon water whenever I have lemons at home. it's just delicious!

Never knew this could be so much fun!

I've been busyyy!

Ever since I decided to move my blog over to Nouw the gears in my head have been spinning! I've been fixing a new look for my banners I have on my sites, and I even learned how to use Adobe After Effects!
And that started because I was looking for a particular type of smokey video that I wanted to have as an intro to my upcoming videos. I wanted it to look similar to the banners I have. and I couldn't find anything. And then I stumbled across on how to make that exact smoke thing that I wanted, so I downloaded After Effects. And thus entered the sea of doing animations and whatnot.
And I managed to do a temporary intro, that I'm quite happy with. it's not perfect but it works for now. I still need to poke around more in AE to get that smokey background I want, so this will do until then!

what do you think about it?

H&M Glitterati Mascara Eyeliner

2018-03-04 16:48
Från Trickmetolife

H&M have come out with this gorgeous product. Which they've probably had for a while now, but I rarely visit H&M so I'll blame it on that.

The product I'm talking about is their Glitterati Mascara Liner that is like a glitter eyeliner and a glitter mascara in one. Cool huh?!

H&M describes them as a colorful, glittering gel liner and mascara in one. With a formula that is full of glitter that gives a glistening touch to your look.

They are 59,90 SEK (~$7.55) for 4 ml

I've got three out of five colors to show you today.

The other two that I don't have is your standard Gold and Silver.

First off we have Nebula, who is a pretty iridescent pink glitter with a green shift to it. it's beautiful, but really hard to capture on photos if you're like me and don't have good lighting.

Next up we have Starlight. Which reminds me a lot of Viva la Divas Crystal glitter eyeliner in Disco. both have that white/see through base with holographic glitter in them. but I do think this one is cheaper, and that you get more product.

Lastly we have the one who captured my heart, and made my whole body scream " I WANT, NO NEED IT NOW!" when I saw it on the shelf.
Liftoff is this GORGEOUS copper glitter with a green shift to it that really doesn't like to show up in pictures. This is one of those things you really have to see in real life to understand how pretty it actually is! If I hadn't seen this orange gorgeousness on the shelf one day when I was in H&M I would've never even looked twice at these. But now I did, and I don't regret it at all!


This is the wand. Nothing fancy really, but it looks cool. So it has the eyeliner tip on the end, and then the "mascara" bit that's just ridges in the plastic so you can easily disperse the glitter onto your lashes.

Now, this is not meant to be instead of your mascara, this is more of a glitter topper. so you put this on you own/false lashes when you're done with your makeup, and it will add some extra sparkles to it.
I used nebula for that on Christmas eve and it was beautiful! unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it, But I most probably will redo that makeup I wore.

Now these pack a lot of glitter for a simple line, if that makes sense? Like you get a lot of glitter in one stroke, and doesn't really go in for a second one of top of that. This is something I like. And you can barely feel the glitter when you have it on your eyes and lashes.

But are they as annoying as glitter can be?
What do you think? It's GLITTER! Of course you're going to find it everywhere and anywhere when you've used these and then taken it off. Surely it won't be ALL over the place, but it will be all over your face and hairline when you've taken it off. But that basically is the price to pay when you want to me a sparkly Goddess!


And of course some swatches! the order is from left to right: Nebula, Starlight & Liftoff. In focus and slightly off.

I do recommend these if you're into glitter, but don't to be over the top with it. Or if you just want pretty sparkly things overall. But honestly, if you can go to a H&M Store, check if they have these and swatch them yourself, because these pictures do not do these beauties any justice. because they are simply gorgeous and I'm really happy I have these in my collection.

I usually put this under my foundation to hide my dark circles, and it does a really good job at doing just that. I usually buy my skinfood products off eBay. And I bought this one on a whim and fell in love with it once I tried it. and now I kinda use it almost every time I do my makeup. A little goes a long way with this one as well.

all I can say is; if you haven't tried it you should.

Day 26.

This is my favorite makeup remover. That is when I actually can afford to buy it, I've talked about it before on my blog. Although it was many years ago. But yeah, this makeup remober takes away makeup like no ones buisness, and it leaves your skin feeling soft ans smooth. They've vhanged the packaging and name on it a couple of times during the years But from what I can recon it's still the same product.

Day 25.

My favorite palette must be the Too faced Chocolate bar palette.

Why?

because it's the one I always reach for when I'm on "stand by" mode, Where I don't think and just do when it comes to makeup. and it smells nice too, even tho the scent has faded a bit.

it is a well loved palette to  say the least.

Do you think I could do this without having my two snuggle babies in the challenge. Don't think so!

They LOVE to lay snuggled together under a blanket they've stolen from me. And they do this even when they have clothes on!

Day 19

My favorite mascara is sexy pulp from Yves Rocher. Unfortunately I don't have it at the moment so I can't show you exactly how it looks on my lashes. But I've used it countless makeup looks, so you just have to search the blog and you'll see how it look :)


But Yeah, I love this. It separated perfectly and leaves the lashes looking luscious and pretty and the bristles does so it doesn't clump up as easily. Just perfect!

DMC Day 19: Favorite Foundation

Day 19!

My favorite foundation is this one from Idun minerals!

I first got a sample of the color Freja, that was way to dark for me, from my mother-in-law during the summer. I tried it out and really liked how it felt on my skin. And when it came to what foundation I wanted to wear on a special occasion  I knew exactly what I wanted. So i strolled down to Apoteket and bought the lightest shade Jorunn. And yes, 299 sek ($37.54) is quite steep of a price tag. but honestly it's worth it.

and now I use it more like a "special occasion" foundation. but yeah. its one of the nicest foundations I've tried and it fits really pale skin tones, they also do have for really dark co loured skin as well, which is really good in my opinion!
