The freak show’s in town!

Some days ago i played with my makeup, and just went kinda crazy. I didn’t film it, but if you’re interested in it, I might redo it on camera. I hope you guys enjoy it!

  

Sometimes, one girl and too much makeup can get the funniest results. The purple eyebrows makes a good statement. I kinda love them, but don’t think I’ll ever get the guts to wear them outside of my house unless maybe for a photoshot. Then they would kick ass.

– Would you ever go outside with coloured eyebrows?

– If you would, what colour would you pick?

Summer, summer, summer!

So summer is already here (of course if you live anywhere but Norway, you might actually get  some sun as well!) and this is the time to bring out your bright-in-your-face coloured nail polishes and have a blaaaast! Like I’ve mentioned before, Isodora is my favorite brand to buy nail polishes from. They make the most amazing coloured nail polishes and they last FOREVER. So I picked out my top 5 summer polishes from them and thought I would tell you about them and why I love them.

All of these nail polishes are from Isadoras Wonder Nail collection. And two of them are in fact limited edition for summer. As it is shown on the picture they have the wide brush, which makes it really easy to apply to the nails, and easier to get an even application + it’s an extra long-lasting nail polish – almost as long-lasting as sleeping beauty’s latest nap – and they’ll stay on until you remove it with nail polish remover.

Glacé: Also called donut fat by my BFF Tonje. It’s a really nice light light light pink shimmery colour. Perfect for everyday use, and very work appropriate. It works with everything, and still gives a nice sophisticated look. A big hit in my book.

Ocean Drive: Is the absolute perfect minty green colour for summer. Unlike vintage mint, it’s very very very bright, and really pops on your fingers. Not like any green, minty colour I’ve ever owned before. I have it on my toes at the moment – let’s have a little moment to think of the grossness – and it’s just perfect for anyone who wants a bright but not pink or red, perfect. It’s also a limited edition colour, so run and buy it!

Vintage mint: is a more toned down version of Ocean Drive. It’s a nice light minty olive colour that colours you nails, but without drawing too much attention to them. A good summer colour for any green lovers out there.

Baby Blue: the name is a huge buzz kill here. It tells it as it is, a baby blue colour. Not so much more to say about it. One thing I really like about this one is that it doesn’t strike! It does not leave any of those awkward lines on you nails, like some pastel nail polishes does. A very nice sky blue colour.

Mellow Yellow: might just be my second favorite after Ocean Drive. I LOVE THIS COLOUR! Never have I ever found something that can even compare to this one. It’s a nice soft yellow nail polish with a lot of iridescent sparkles to it. Amazing. And as the Baby Blue, it doesn’t strike. I just love this one. It makes you look a lot tanner (on you hands of course) and gives a nice clean look. I love it, I love it, I love it.

The Isadora nail polishes retails for 79 kroners and is more on the expensive side of nail polishes. I have not been able to find them anywhere but in Norway so far, but if you have it in you country – let me know. So I hoped you guys liked it, and let me know if you’d like an overview of my isadora  , all of them and not just my top five summer ones.

– What’s your favorite nail polish brand?

– What’s your favorite nail polish colour for summer or anytime?

– Do you like neutral or colourful nails? Let me know!

Oh sparkly blue

So if you’re one who follows the people on youtube regulary, you’ve probably seen that many has a colour on the tips of their brushes. This is a nice trick so you’ll reconize your brushes around other makeup artists or friends. You can use whatever colour to do this, it’s all up to your imagination. I did add a light baby blue cout at first, but decided to go with the sparkles as well later on. Hope you guys like it.

The first thing I did was to apply a bit of tape on the end of the brushes. How far up or down on the handle you want it is completly up to you. The line you make with the tape is going to decide where the nailpolish should start or stop.

 

Then you just apply the nailpolish layer by layer. I take two layers of each colour, but if your just using one colour I don’t think you’ll need more then two of them. Be sure to make it as intence as posible, that’s the coolest way people. Then you just let the nailpolish dry and peel of the tape. You should be left with an awesome coloured tip on your brushes.

I’m thinking of doing something different with my tutorials from now on. I think I’m going to start filming them and posting them on here as videos. Then it will be easier for anyone who may want to recreate the look, to see what tecniques I used and how. Let me know what you think!
