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.
I need to share one of my biggest addictions right now – or rather two.
One, is ice cream. It has always been. I love ice cream! And when the weather is good I’ll use any excuse
to go and get some. But another obsession of mine are lip oils.
As you probably can see in the pictures, I’m struggling to chose between eating an ice cream cone or applying one of the wonderful colors from Tom Fords Lip Slick collection.
These colors are gorgeous.
The reason why I love lip oils is because they feel nutritious on the lips – like a balm. Which I love.
But looks like a gloss. Which I hate.
I’ve always loved the glossy look, just hated the feeling.
With lip oils I get a little bit of good from both worlds.
If you’re not a fan of glossy lips, because your hair get stuck in the stickiness or you simple prefer something more soft and natural. You should try these out.
They give a hint of a tint and feels amazing!
Okay, so Coachella Week #1 is coming up – and I’m going! I know right?! EXCITING!
This is something I’ve wanted to cross off my buckets list for so long .. and now it’s finally happening.
It all made sense because I live in LA now and it’s only two hours away from Coachella Valley where the festival takes place.
Therefor this week will be COACHELLA WEEK on the blog.
I’ve prepared a lot of fun content for you – making beauty looks and hairstyles for the festival.
I didn’t want to go cray cray, but I still wanted to fit in with the crowd – which means loads of glitter!
I had so much fun filming this, so hopefully you will enjoy it too.
MY FIRST BEAUTY LOOK FOR COACHELLA 2018
This is the beauty look for my first day next weekend
– the hair style to this beauty look will be in the next video later this week!
I know this video is hella long! But it has been so long since I’ve filmed something for you guys and I just couldn’t stop rambling! Thank you for bearing over with me and thanks so much for watching beauties!
Wauw, this has been a long time coming. Without a note or any heads up I chose to pull the plug in November and take a long digital detox. I’m so sorry to those of you I’ve disappointed by doing so, but it was a personal decision that made me do this from one day to another. I simply wasn’t motivated. I was feeling confused about what I was doing and if it even made sense for you.
But after reading all of your messages and comments I now see that it wasn’t the nicest move to just leave you without a notice.
But I’m back and feeling better than ever.
I’ve already created a lot of great video tutorials, reviews and looks for you, that I just can’t wait to show you.
This time I’ve taken to myself has been a really good way of finding out what I want to focus on in my videos. How I can teach and communicate tips and tricks to you guys. It has really made me look everything through – so hopefully you can get even more inspired, get even more informed about products and get educated in everything within beauty.
As some of you already know – or have figured out from my small insta stories – I’m still living in Los Angeles.
The reason why is, that I impressive enough, passed the many tests and got invited to take my Masters Degree at UCLA here in Los Angeles. So right now I’m living here while studying Digital Marketing.
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done – but it is also the most giving and I’m pretty sure I’ve become wiser and smarter in the last four months than I’ve gotten the last four years. Haha!
So while living in this beautiful city, being a nerd at school – I will of course share all my beauty secrets and step-by-step guides with you – but I will also invite you into my LA life.
I’m so happy and humbled that you’ve all been this patient with me and I hope that I can make up for it the next couple of weeks.
One thing is sure .. I’m very excited for this next chapter!
In the pictures I’m wearing one of my favorite highlighter palettes.
It’s the Urban Decay After Glow
Both on my eyes and the cheekbones – which gives a mesmerizing look and the most beautiful and intense glow on the cheek!
I absolutely love this palette. I either use it dry with a brush – or add a little oil to make it more creamy an mix it into the foundation, blush or eyeshadow.
You can get the palette HERE

I always got a lot of questions on the products I use on my lips on a daily basis.
And yes, pink is defiantly my color when it comes to my lips, I can’t leave my apartment without a pink shade in my bag.
I don’t know why I’ve become so obsessed with pink lipsticks and glosses, but I just think that it adds such a nice definition, glow and color to your whole face. I doesn’t matter if its winter or summer, but a little color on your face never hurt.
Of course I’m always trying out new textures, colors and shades, but these 5 beauties are the ones I’ve been stuck on for the last few months. I’ll have them laying around in my apartment and in different bags.
Trust me, you don’t wanna meet a panicked Mia if I left my home without a lipstick with me.
LEFT TO RIGHT ON PRODUCTS PICTURE:
Yves Saint Laurent
The most perfect peachy pink, looks perfect with a little tan and feels so good on the lips.
I’ve always thought that the designs on the Yves Saint Laurents lipstick is the most beautiful ever.
So this one doesn’t look bad in your party bag. I love this color, it’s vibrant and not too rich! Volupté Tint-In-Balm, YSL
A newer addition to my pink family. This one looks more red-ish than it is – and yes, it does have a more deep red undetone.
I use this one for when my lips needs some extra nourishment, but at the same time wanna look kissable.
The color and texture gives you the most luminous pout, that just looks like it has been kissed.
This one is key to the no-makeup-makeup-look. Balm dotcom Cherry, Glossier
Yeah, this is a yellow lipstick. I know weird, right? But it doesn’t actually come off as a yellow shade.
This lipstick is a ph lipstick – or a mood lipstick as it’s also called.
The color will change depending on the ph number in your body, with makes it kinda like a personalized lipstick.
It will give you the most beautiful pink pout, with a little yellow undertone that reminds me of sunset.
It’s perfect for the summertime or when you’re having a tan. Morning Sunshine, Lipstick Queen
This is hands down a perfect combo, for the ideal pink lipstick.
It’s creamy like nourishing lip balm, but gives you a sheer pink shade.
It smells like peppermint and makes your lips feel so soft and kissable. You can’t get anything but happy with this color.
Not too pink, not too sheer, not too nothing. It’s just super super good. Gelato Plush Up Lipstick Candy Girl, Elizabeth Arden
Wanna have a little bit more action and definition? I’ve talked about these lipsticks before and I still love them.
This color is more of a rosy, dusty pink – which I really like when I wanna make my look all about the pout.
I always get compliments when wearing this one. It just makes your lips looks so ridiculous full and beautiful.
It’s one of my favorite colors from their range, so go find yours! Lazy Laquer Stick, Dior
Sorry I didn’t make a video for Video Wednesday – my video camera broke down, which sucks!
So I had to borrow one so I could shoot this cool Halloween tutorial that I’ve been working on.
I thought it would be fun to go all in on Halloween now that I’m in America, where they really know how to celebrate that tradition! So I really hope that you’ll enjoy this quick video of me, creating the Pearl Skull makeup look.
