Nothing beats a red lip. It’s bold and beautiful.
I’ve never been afraid on putting a bright red color on my pout a Monday morning – so you shouldn’t either!
But I know it can be difficult trusting that little devil red color.
What if it gets stuck on your teeth? Smudged out everywhere on your white dress – or ending on another persons mouth after a great snog? I know, there are tons of reasons why the red lips is a bad idea, that can ruin your day.

.. but, there are actually some red lipsticks out there, that can win your trust back.
This one, is my most loyal badass red lipstick I own. I don’t even think about it when I’m wearing this cool girl.
She will let me sweat on the dance floor all night, kiss all the guys I want – without leaving a trail and she will never smudge off!
She’s my sidekick, and I love her.

Always On Liquid Lipstick by Smashbox

I’m wearing the color, Bawse, which is a deep red color.

I love the name, ‘Always On’, cause it will literally stay on forever.
Are you still having a hard time trusting your lipstick?
Then you can watch the video tutorial I made, where I give tips and tricks on how to make your lipstick stay on.
You can see the video HERE

I hope you like this liquid lipstick just as much as I do.
They have a range of cool colors, so go and find your match!

WEDNESDAY VIDEO│How To Get That Glow

Finally my Wednesday Video is up again!
I talk a bit about why it’s been two weeks since I uploaded my video – so sorry.
But this is a video about getting the right glow, which works for both summer and winter time.
I’m using a lot of products in the video, so don’t get scared – but as always, you chose which products you think would work into your own makeup routine. I never use all of them, I’m just a normal human being as well.
Sorry for the awkward frog angle on the camera and the bad lightning – its hard for me to find the perfect filming spot in our new apartment here in Los Angeles. It will get better, I promise.
I look a little bit like a bimbo in this video – crazy blonde hair and tanned skin, I know.

I found this super cool wall in Venice, well there are so many – but this one got me so inspired.
What cooler way than rock som crazy neon lips?
I had this gorgeous orange liquid lipstick – so I decided this was the perfect way to express my feeling.

The liquid lipstick is from Nars – and their Suede collection has so many edgy and trendy colors!
I own more than a few to be honest .. Well, they just really stays on your lips forever and they’re so pigmented.

This very creamy lipstick is called Liquid Suede from NYX. 
I used the color Foiled Again

I love colors – and I adore to mix and match everything, so this was heaven.
After these crazy photos, me and Maria decided to go and get a Poké Bowl at one of our favorite places in Venice.
It’s called the Poké Shack, you should check it out!

Now we’ll go on a hunt for food .. once again.

Have a great day,

DESERT EYES│Burnt & Bright

LOCATION: Los Angeles

 

Even though it’s late September here in LA, it’s still super warm.
Actually September is one of the warmest months in LA, so the heat can get really real sometimes.
I’ve almost only been wearing burnt and orange colors on my eyes since I’ve gotten here. It really sums up the feel on the whole vibe, the weather and the people!
The burnt and orange colors really looks great on a suntanned skin too, so that’s not bad either.
.. and as you maybe can see I already got a little color. Which I loooove. 
Another thing I like to mix the makeup with, is bright colors.
Nothing beats a tanned skin and fresh eyes.
I’ve always loved the idea of opening up the eyes with a little kohl in a bright color on the inner eye.
But a little trick is to choose either a nude color og a lavender color on the wet part of your eye crease.
That will look most natural and really open up your eyes.

So, my eyes are actually quite big by themselves – so it’s not that I need them to get bigger.
I ones got told that I’ve crazy eyes. Which I don’t agree on, but it stuck to my mind.
But on a rough morning, a little whitening in the inner eye, can really help you out and eliminate the redness.

HERE’S WHAT I USED

Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette, Urban Decay, HERE
I used the colors Low Blow, He Devil and Cayenne
(… but honestly, I freaking love all of them!)

Faux Whites Eye Brightener, NYX, HERE
I used the color White Smoke – Periwinkle

… and ass you see I still have some crazy pink hair colors in my hair.
