Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Green Smokey Makeup

I have been using the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette almost every time I have done my makeup since I bought it. I think it's a really good palette for both simple everyday looks, more dramatic smokey looks and everything between. That's why I wanted to film a tutorial using it. For me, this look would be more of a night time makeup on the spring/summer and a day look on the fall/winter.

What do you think?


My Nails - Light Green / Claudia nr. 107 Honeydew

I'm quite lazy with my nails on the summer. With that I mean that I hardly ever do any design, I still always have them painted. I almost feel naked if I don't have any colour on my nails. I guess that is because I'm so used to it, I'm not used to see them without nail polish and I don't like them without nail polish.
To make it a little more fun and make it look like I have tried I simply painted the rigfingers in a different colour than the rest. This time it was a white from E.L.F. with nr. 158 Sparkling Silver from Claudia over. On all the other finger I used another polish from Claudia in 107 Honeydew.
I actually like this green polish more than I thought I would. It's a perfect light green. I find that many light green colours are more towards mint green but this one isn't. I think that is what I like about it. I also think this will be a good base colour to do designs on since it's so light.


First Impression: L'oreal Sublime Soft Micellar Cleansing Water

I have only use this product for about a week but I wanted to say what I think about it so far so I guess this is more lika a 'first impression' post than a review.
My very first thought about this when I woke up on the morning the day after I used it the first time was: WOW! I had two spots on my cheek but I could see a big difference on them after just using this cleansing water one time.. I was still a little red but the actual spots had gotten much smaller. The funny thing about that is that it says on the bottle that it is for dry and sensitiv skin so then I don't expect it to do anything with my spots since you mostly get spots from oiliness. So that is one big positive thing!
It also removes my make up really well. I usually use this on a cotton pad, then my scrub, then this again when I wash my face on the night and i feel like it really washes of all the dirt.
So right now I don't really have anything negative to say about this at all. I would recommend it to most people, no matter your skintype, since I have combination and it works like a dream for me.


Beauty Haul

I have bought some beauty products recently so I decided to show them in a video, but I thought it would be easier to show swatches in pictures than in the video so here they are.
As you can see with the eyeshadows the darker colour are more pigmented than the lighter ones, but the light colours are still good. I haven't used any sort of base under the swatches but I always use a primer on my eyelids when I do my makeup so I pretty sure the colours will show even better on my eyes. I am probably going to do tutorials using both these eyeshadow palettes.
The blush in Heather Silk is really pigmented so I think you will need to use a light hand when you apply that one. I haven't used it yet though because I prefer peachy colour on my cheeks on the summer. So the other blush, in pearlescent pink, I have used everyday since I bought it. People say that it's a good dupe for Orgasm from Nars which everyone seems to love. And I really can see why if it's similar to this one.

This was my first time talking in a video and I actually wasn't as scared as I thought I would be.
Look here if you want to see what else I have bought:


Favourite Summer Foundation

I would say that I prefer to use a BB-cream rather than a foundation on the summer. Both because they feel lighter on the skin, they look more natural and they have SPF along with many more skin benefits. But that was before I tried this foundation.
I actually bought it in the end of last summer but my tan faded quite fast and I got paler so then this colour was to dark for me, but now it's a good match.
The reasons to why this is such a good summer foundation for me is that you don't feel it on your skin. I really don't like to feel like I have a whole lot of makeup on my skin when it's hot weather. It also dries pretty matt which I think makes it last longer, I still always powder over it though. The last thing is that it has SPF 30 in it which obviously is really good and especially now on the summer.
I sometimes mix it with my moisturizer and apply it with my hands if I want it to go quicker and don't feel like I need to much coverage. If I want a bit more coverage I apply it with my E.L.F. powder brush but when I do that I pump out a little on the brush and apply that to one area on my face and so on. I do that because this foundation dries pretty fast so  it makes it easier to blend out.
I would say it has a medium coverage but you can build it up a little.


Easy Summer Makeup Tutorial / My first YouTube Video

I have been thinking about doing youtube videos for a while, before I started my blog actually. I thought it would be easier to blog, which it probably is, but now I wanted to try youtube and see how I like making videos. I don't talk in this one and to be honest I'm a but scared about talking in videos. Mostly because I'm swedish so english isn't my first language but I guess I'll get used to it.
Since this is my first video I wanted to do something simple so I did an easy summer look that I have been wearing on days when it has been quite hot weather.
I'm not going to promise anything but I'm going to try and do one video every week or every second at least.
I hope you like it and please give me feedback ( but be nice ) and recommend what you would want to see.


Neutral palettes

A neutral eyeshadow palette is something that I think you should have, you can create so many different looks with them. Everything from a simple everyday look to a classic 50's look to a dramatic smokey eye. The hard thing is to find one that is good for you. That have all the colours you're looking for. That is the problem I'm struggling with. I do have some neutral colours I really like, both matte and shimmery, but they are in different palettes.
I have been thinking about the Urban Decay Naked 2 ( I like that on more than the first one ) and the Naked Baics. I think Naked Basics seems to be such a good small palette that you easily can bring with you when you go away and you have colour to create many looks with. But at the same time I'm not sure about it. Then I thought the Naked 2 would be good. Sure it's bigger but you get twice as many eyeshadows and you get a double ended brush with it which I think is a big plus.
If you want something a bit cheaper the Sleek palettesare great. I have two ( not the ones on the picture ) and they are great. Here are the Storm and Au Naturel palettes. I like there is a few colour in the Storm palette. You can make a pretty neutral makeup but then add a pop of colour to make it more fun. With the Au Naturel palette I like that there are so many dark colours, it makes it so easy to do different smokey looks which I really like on the fall and winter.
The last one is the cheapest for only £ 4 from MUA but don't be fooled by the low price. I have two shimmery single eyeshadows from MUA and the are amazing!
This is the Undressed palette. I think it has a good variation of colour but I wish it would have a darker matte colour.

I don't know if this has helped anyone in any way but that was my opinions of five neutral eyeshadow palettes. I don't have any of these but I have heard good things about all of them.


10 Summer Essentials

It's starting to feel more like summer here in Sweden now so I thought I will show you 10 of my summer essentials.
The first two things are the ones I find the most important. Sun lotion and after sun. It is really important to protect your skin from the sun so do not forget sun lotion when you outside. If you would still get a sunburn or your skin feels a bit dry after you've been out, then use an after sun lotion. Here is a review on this after sun.

My top two makeup essentials on the summer are a BB-cream or a foundation with SPF ( protect you skin! ) and powder. This powder isn't that mattifying but it's enough for my skin which is nomal to combination now on the summer. Click here to read more about it.

If I say at a friends house for the night or if I go to the beach I think it so much easier to wash my makeup off with cleansing wipes than makeup remover. It goes quicker and you don't need cotton pads and water and what you might need with a cleansing milk or gel.
I also like to use leave in conditioner on the summer. If I've been in the water or by the coast were it's windy my hair gets quite tangled and it helps so much to use a leave in conditioner when I brush my hair. It also make my hair soft and shiny.
I always have dry lips so a lip balm is always a must for me.

Hair ties! Always have one with me so I can put my hair up or do a braid or whatever I feel like.
My two clothing essentials are shorts and a cozy knitted jumper I can pull over when it gets colder on the night.

That's all my summer essentials. What are some of yours?
