My go to everyday eye brushes!

Happy Tuesday, lovlies!

I thought I would share my everyday eye brushes with you! These three brushes are the ones I tend to use daily when I'm getting ready for work in the morning. I am keeping things simple since I normally put my makeup on at 6 in the morning.. no fancy smanchy eye looks here! ;)

These three brushes are all it takes, sometimes I just use two of them.

Makeup Geek Sweet Dreams Pigment

What can be better to finish off the long Easter Holiday with a gorgeous, summery, awesome pigment?

Makeup Geek calls Sweet Dreams a "light flesh toned beige pink with slight shimmer".
I call it "stunning everyday workhorse in a jar".

This particular shade is not as shimmery as for example Vegas Lights but it does have a sheen. On my swatch below I have used way more product than you normally would, but I really wanted you to see how stunning it is!

Social Media Musings

Hey lovlies!

I just read a great blog post that PolishedWays made regarding adding a graphic signature to your email messages. An excellent post by the way, but it got me thinking and of course I got sidetracked big time.

To make a long and winding story short; it made me thinking about social media presence.


This blog post is not about giving answers, it is rather about asking questions to be honest.
Asking myself how I manage my social media presence.

I have a blog. I use Twitter and Instagram. I have Google+, I have YouTube.

Coconut Oil - The Skin Miracle

Coconut Oil has been used in skin care for probably as long as there have been coconuts. Over the last few months there has been quite a buzz regarding coconut oil in social media, I do not know how this "trend" started but as I said, it is not something "new".

I personally first heard about it through pinksofoxy on Youtube. I saw her video about how she uses coconut oil and it kind of lingered in my mind for several months without me actually going out and buying coconut oil.

A few weeks ago, while grocery shopping, I saw a jar of coconut oil just in front of me at eye level. So, I decided to finally give it a go.

If you are going to use coconut oil in skin care you need to make sure it is:
  • organic (ekologisk in Swedish)
  • coldpressed (kallpressad in Swedish)
  • virgin oil

Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Pigment

Pigments.

Can't live with'em, can't live without'em. Messy. Sparkly. Gorgeous. Necessary.

I ordered four Makeup Geek Pigments a little while back and I've had them for a few days now.
The ones I ordered are:


  • Vegas Lights
  • Enchanted
  • Afterglow
  • Sweet Dreams


I was going to take photos of all of them today. Brought out my dSLR and set up the lighting.
Shot Vegas Lights, was going to shoot Enchanted.

No video this weekend!

I have had a poop week (month) and my energy during the weekend has been pretty much non existing so there is no new video up this weekend.
Jag har haft en riktig skitvecka (skitmånad) och min energi denna helgen har varit i stort sätt obefintlig, så det blir ingen video denna helgen!
