My name is Marie Thomsen. I work as a professional makeup artist based in Copenhagen. Before I started working with makeup I was working as a professional hairdresser, I still use my hairdressing skills from time to time on jobs but now more on a styling based level, while I also help my clients with other areas as nails with the help of sites as bestnailsalonnear.me.
My work field is in fashion and advertising. Among my clients are Elle, Eurowoman, Costume, Cover, Euroman, Mads Nørgaard, ONLY, InWear, Vero Moda, Ganni, Pandora, Maria Black jewellery, Nue’, Magasin du Nord, I-D, and many more.
My aim with the blog is to share my work, take you backstage, give tips and tricks from professionals, -both myself and my colleagues. Share what or who inspires me.
I hope you like what you see, remember if you don’t want to miss a post I recommend you follow marieandthemakeup on bloglovin’.
Velkommen til Skabsdivas skønhedsunivers. En blog om skønhed, livsstil og mental velvære.
Bag tastaturet sidder Malene, en nordjyde i slut 20erne, som afveksler mellem rød læbestift, perleøreringe, stiletter og afslappende loungetøj, farverige strømper og med håret opsat i en rodet knold.
Here’s my beauty look together with the hair look I did for Coachella week 1.
I love these cute small hair buns, they’re so fun and really in the right festival spirit.
Quick and easy hair tutorial – and you can even rock this hairstyle for an everyday look. It’s all about the attitude!

Okay. Crazy thing. I colored my hair pink. Like, super pink.
Not permanent – god no, I’m too much of a chicken to do that, but this was a lot for me.
I had the idea after running around Venice all day long, with all these cool, inspiring people who dress how they like and act how they like. So why not try and go a little crazy too? I’m here aren’t I?
Well, I had these cool bottles of spray colors with me. One in a super hot pink color and another in a more babypink color.
To be honest, now that I look back at my little dare, I should probably only have used the baby pink one – it’s much more my style.
The hot pink – is super hot, I felt like one of those super tanned wrestling women you see in TV.
It was a little overwhelming to be honest.
BUT, I liked it. For one day. And then I wanted to wash it out.
On the bottles, it says one-day-color, which means you can just wash it out and have your old color back.
Well, it ain’t that easy. Right now I’ve washed my hair about 5 times in one sitting.
It has faded, in deed – but it’s not gone.
So, I found out that there’s this shampoo that matches the color sprays.
This shampoo should wash all the color out of your hair, so I’m gonna get dressed and drive to Ultra.
I bet they have it – I’ll keep you updated!
Okay. So I got the fading shampoo and washed my hair 10 times, it didn’t really help.
No I’ve tried the color remover – and it’s still not all out of my hair.
Obviously I’m super impatient, so I guess I’ll just have to wait. And keep calm. Ha!
When it comes to dry shampoos, there are so many out there – but yet, so little that actually work.
I’ve tried my part, because when it comes to being born with thin, scandinavian hair,
a dry shampoo can become your best friend.
But after getting disappointed over and over again, I’ve been left frustrated with a grey-ish weird texture in my hair
– and a look that I neither can or will controle. Most of the times I looked like a troll and an old lady combined. Not a very charming look. And certainly not what I was looking for.
But then I found this dry shampoo. The one that changed the game.
This dry shampoo actually cleans your hair.
My biggest dream, was to find a dry shampoo that would let my fine, scandinavian hair last one day longer
– without having to put it into a boring ponytail.
WHAT I DOES
It absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odor
Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean – without a weird smell of cherries or some other berries
(which some brands attend to mix in, for some silly reason)
It gives your hair a fluffy, light feeling – no powder or heaviness on the hair
HOW TO USE
The important – and yet different thing about this dry shampoo, is, that you apply it to roots and lengths.
Then you let it sit in your hair for about 30 seconds.
Now, the trick is to take out alle the grease and oil with your fingers.
You rub your hair between your palms, one section at a time.
When you’re done, look at your hands. All the grease and oil will be on your hands instead of your hair.
Clever right? Now brush your hair through and enjoy another day of clean hair!
I promised you videos where I style some of my Balmain Hair Couture Extensions.
Here’s one of my favorite looks using only one piece of hair extension.
Who hasn’t always loved the feeling of a new blow dry straight from the salon?
Your hair always feels so soft, bouncy and smooth.
… and why not create the same feeling and look at home?
This is my way of doing it, at I absolutely love this look.
