Get high quality brushes for less $


Category: beauty // 22.07.2017 at.13:04 o' clock // 2 comments


Remember that time, last year I think, when I spent $21 (168 NOK ,-) on a fancy new makeup brush in pink? Well, if you want an update on that, let me tell you that those pink hairs started coming off pretty soon after I bought it. So this time, when looking for a new makeup brush, I didn't bother going down town to buy another overpriced product. This time I went online and found a really, really cheap one.  



Obviously, at such a ridiculous price, I was expecting some low quality crap. I mean, even the expensive one that I bought last year turned out to be a waste of money. I thought this time, at least I wouldn't waste as much.

Imagine my surprise when it came in the mail. This was definitely not the junk I had expected. This actually seems to be of good quality. The hairs are so soft and comfortable on my skin, and they - don't! - come off! I'm so in love with this brush right now, and will definintely be buying a thousand more! Get it here!

What's on my face?


Category: beauty // 17.07.2017 at.20:55 o' clock // No comments




EYEBROW PENCIL (get it here):
Here's a major secret: my eyebrow pencil is actually a lipliner. But it's brown, so who cares? If they came in black, I'd probably use it for my eyeliner as well. It glides on so easily, and it stays there! It's so easy to work with! I love it! Also, it's waterproof and, because it's so affordable, you can buy one in every color to see which one looks best on you. I'm wearing shade number seven (nude, although it's more like an auburn brown if you ask me).

EYELINER (get it here):
I've been using this eyeliner since I was seventeen and I'll probably keep using it until I die. It's waterproof, it stays on all day, and it's easy to apply. What more could I possibly ask for? When it comes to mascara, I don't really care. All mascara's are basically the same, it's the brush that makes them different.

CONTACTS:
Love my big, striking blue eyes? So do I. I got them from my mama here.

EYESHADOW (get it here):
After primer and foundation I apply eyeshadow. I first apply the color havannah (the darkest one) on my eyelids and smooth it out, before applying the color banana (the second light one) under my eyebrows to make the gap between the eyebrows and the eyelid appear bigger than it really is. I also use this eyeshadow palette to contour my face.

LIPLINER: (get it here):
Shade number ten. I love it!

LIPSTICK:
I wrote an entire blog post about this once. Read it here.

FOUNDATION & PRIMER:

My favorite primer that I use all the time (except for when I'm wearing sunscreen) is this one. I wrote a blog post about my favorite foundation here.

DIY hair extensions on a budget


Category: beauty // 14.07.2017 at.21:58 o' clock // No comments


Hair extensions are pricey. If you're low on money, chances are, you simply can't afford them. At least not without having to save up money for them first. Synthetic wigs, however, tend to be a lot cheaper. So in this blog post I'm gonna show you how to turn a cheap wig into a full head of hair extensions.


 

YOU'LL NEED:

A wig ( here )
Clips ( here )
scissors
needle
thread
 


STEP 01

Flip your wig upside down and inside out, so you can easily see where the hair strips are sewn.

STEP 02
Cut out the fabric inbetween the strips.




If done correctly, you should now have a bunch of hair strips similar to the ones pictured above. If you think they're a little too thin, you can sew one or two on top of each other to make them thicker.
 



STEP 03
Sew a clip in the left corner, then another one in the right corner, as pictured above. If your strips are very long, you should also put one to two in the middle of the strip.

That's it! You should now have a handful of hair extensions, ready to be clipped into your hair! Just remember that they are syntethic, and should never be dyed, washed in hot water, brushed when wet or curled / straigtened with a curling iron.

You won't believe what she looks like now!


Category: beauty // 11.07.2017 at.02:25 o' clock // 2 comments


I'm not a big fan of gossip, but in case you missed it, mama June - known from the tv-series "here comes Honey Boo Boo" - was on a weight loss journey earlier this year. She went from a size 24 (EU size 54) and looking like this:




To a size 4 (EU size 34), and she now looks like this:


It's amazing how much healthier, happier and confident she looks. A true inspiration to big girls everywhere who feel like their weight is out of control.

If June Shannon, a 37 year old mother of four, can turn her life around and find the will to eat healthy and exercise more in order to lose weight, so can you!

Why looking younger is not a bad thing


Category: beauty // 10.07.2017 at.19:39 o' clock // 2 comments


It's funny how, at least in my case, when you get to a certain age, people mistaking you for being younger, kind of feels like a compliment. We spend our entire childhood and teenage years trying to appear older, wiser, more mature than we are, and then one day, when you reach a certain age, you're no longer insulted when people say you look younger. What, to you, once meant "childish, underdeveloped and immature", suddenly has a whole new meaning: beautiful.



When you're seventeen you want people to think you're twenty one. But when you're twenty six, at least in my case, you don't mind people thinking you're seventeen.

I get mistaken a lot. Especially by cashiers. Whenever I'm buying alcohol or tobacco, they ask me for ID to make sure I'm at least eighteen years old. Even when I'm buying energy drinks, they sometimes ask me to show them my ID, even though you can legally buy energy drinks from the day you turn fourteen. When I willingly show them my visa, which has my date of birth printed on it, they give it back with a slightly embarrassed look on their face. As if they just realized they insulted me. "Oh.. You've been old enough for a long time", a female cashier said to me the other day. I couldn't help but smile. To me, being mistaken for being younger is not a bad thing. It just means I have no visible signs of aging on my face. Honestly, it's nice to know my weird habit of using suncreen every day and keeping out of the sun is paying off.

When I was a teenager people used to mock me for looking younger, but guess who's laughing now, bitches!

(Also, looking younger might just earn you cheaper tickets on the bus / train / zoo / anywhere, and the clothes in the childrens section are usually cheaper. So there's that.)

I spend a ridiculous amont of money on...


Category: beauty // 07.07.2017 at.15:18 o' clock // 5 comments


Having a house full of animals means basically two things: 1) you'll never walk alone (literally. They follow you everywhere!), and 2) you'll have to wash all of your clothes far more often than normal people. You won't believe the amount of money I spend on scented fabric softener. It's insane!



I have mainly two favorites. There's this one, a golden bottle from Lenor, that smells like teen spirit (orchids, honey, everything that is sweet and delicate and beautiful. It smells like optimism, sunny days, hopes and dreams), and then there's another one that I'll be telling you about tomorrow.


What's your favorite fabric softeners?

I'm addicted to the pain


Category: beauty // 06.07.2017 at.12:02 o' clock // No comments


The alarm goes off at 07:00 AM. I turn in off and get out of bed. I walk into the bathroom. Do my daily routine, including brushing my teeth. To finish it off I rinse my mouth with Listerine. The purple one. It has a strong taste and it kinda feels like my mouth's being stabbed with tiny knives, but I kinda like it. The more painful it is, the more I get the feeling that it's doing it's job.



I've tried others. Tasteless ones, and minty ones. I don't like them. I need to feel some sort of.. discomfort, while using it. Otherwise I feel like they're not as effective. Not as strong. Guess I'm just weird like that.

This foundation will change your life


Category: beauty // 05.07.2017 at.13:06 o' clock // No comments


Like I mentioned in this post, people have very high expectations when it comes to foundation. After all, it's supposed to cover our skin, sometimes even our entire face, so I guess it's only natural for us to expect a certain quality. Personally I like to think of my face as the canvas and my foundation as paint. You can't paint a masterpiece with poorly made paint. Well, technically you can, but don't argue with me on this..



That's why I spent years trying to find the perfect foundation. I wouldn't settle for bad quality ones that made my face look oily or started wearing off two hours after I first applied it. Even today I see people walking around with their entire makeup bag wherever they go, because they have to reapply it every few hours. That, to me, is a big no no. If your makeup starts wearing off during the day, you should ditch it and find something better. High quality makeup stays the fuck on!

DERMACOL FOUNDATION...

  Waterproof
spf 30
Hypoallergenic
Comes in 14 different shades
Covers acne, scaring, vitiligo and tattoos
Lasts (nearly) forever.


Don't forget to moisturize daily to avoid dry skin. This is very important because if you have dry skin this foundation will make you look like a ninety year old corpse. I'm not kidding.

The one thing that can ruin your look


Category: beauty // 27.06.2017 at.16:07 o' clock // No comments


If you're into makeup, like me, you've probably noticed how people have high expectations about every foundation they buy. It has to stay flawless all day long, feel light, yet give just the right amount of coverage. It has to blend well with your skin tone, have the right shade, and shouldn't clog your pores. When it comes to lipstick, however, it seems as if people don't really care as long as they like the color. In my opinion, they should. They really should care. Because a bad lipstick can ruin your look completely. 


MY FAVORITE LIPSTICK: CANDY YUM YUM BY MAC COSMETICS!

Don't get me wrong: Color is important. After all, we all remember back in the day when teenagers used to wear dark (orange) foundation combined with a lipstick so light it looked almost white, don't we? Thank whoever's up there (or down below) we've moved on from that. 

But even more important than color, is how it feels and how well it stays on. You don't want your lipstick to be too creamy, because the cremier the lipstick the shittier it is. A creamy lipstick usually don't stay in place for long. What you do want, is a harder lipstick. But not too hard - you shouldn't have to use force to get a hint of color. It should be somewhere in between: creamy, but not too creamy, and hard, but not too hard. It should be just hard enough to actually stay in place, and just creamy enough that it feels comfortable and easy putting it on.

I've tried close to everything, and I keep going back to MAC every time. There's just something about MAC that I feel like I don't get anywhere else.

MAC COSMETICS' LIPSTICKS...


Have just the right texture (not too hard, not too creamy)
Are highly pigmented (so you get a good color, not just a hint)
Stays in place even when you're swimming 
(But WILL transfer if you're eating or drinking)
Comes in many colors and shades.

5 natural beauty product replacements


Category: beauty // 22.06.2017 at.13:33 o' clock // 2 comments


Like most girls I have a huge obsession with beauty products. Unlike most girls, I am also greatly concerned with the fact that I'm putting chemicals on my face. That's why, if possible, I will always choose natural, home made products over drugstore ones. Natural products are simply better. For me. For you. For the environment.



 

01 MAKEUP REMOVER
The idea that people put chemicals on their face to remove other chemicals from their face always confused me. For as long as I can remember I've been using olive oil. It's natural, eco-friendly, cheap, it won't sting if you get it in your eyes, it doesn't leave your skin looking red, and it removes waterproof makeup.

02 HAIR MASK
We all want healthy, beautiful, silky soft hair. Instead of spending all your money on overly expensive hair masks, try coconut oil. Wash your hair with shampoo like you usually would, flip your head, and massage coconut oil all over it. From your roots to your ends, cover it all in coconut oil. Let sit for 30+ minutes, rinse out with water and shampoo, let your hair air dry and you'll have the softest, most beautiful looking hair you've ever seen. Best part? It doesn't even look greasy. Just shiny, soft and healthy.

03 POWDER
If you have oily skin, or if you sweat a lot, you know the struggle of your foundation becoming shiny and nasty all too well. That's why people invented powder. Powder absorbs the sweat (or oil) and gives you a matte, more natural, definitely more flattering, look. Here's a little secret most people don't know: you don't need to buy an expensive, chemical-packed powder to get that flattering matte finish. Cocoa powder (for dark skin) and cornstarch (for light skin) works just the same.

04 DRY SHAMPOO
Speaking of cornstarch: it also works as a natural dry shampoo.

05 BLEACH
Hydrogen peroxide is found in all bleaching products, from teeth whitening to hair bleach to skin whitening creams. Hydrogen peroxide is what's causing the bleaching, the other ingredients are just.. Well, who knows? You can buy hydrogen peroxide at your local drugstore for cheap. If you want to use it as a teeth / hair bleaching product, make sure you get the 3% peroxide, and mix it well with water. Any higher % will have an acid-like effect.

This sunscreen will change your life


Category: beauty // 20.06.2017 at.15:26 o' clock // No comments


The secret to staying young forever? Become a vampire. Or have some mutated genes like that Brooke Greenberg kid (rest in peace). The secret to looking young even though you are getting older? Sunscreen!



Did you know that more than 90% of all visible signs of aging are caused by the sun? That's why beauty gurus all over the world are obsessing over sunscreen. In fact, according to those beauty gurus, you should wear sunscreen 20+ every day, all year round, even if it's a cloudy day, to keep those damaging UVA and UVB's from penetrating your skin.

If you're a guy, this shouldn't be too hard. Just buy any sunscreen and put it on before leaving the house. If you're a girl, however, it's a little more difficult. Girls wear makeup, and because most sunscreens are oily, the two don't mix very well, and you end up looking like you're sweaty. I mean that in a "just escaped from hell"-kind of way. It's not very flattering and you will cringe every time you see a mirror. Believe me, I talk (type) from experience.

Thanks to the internet I found my life / skin saver. It's an asian (japanese) brand called Bior, and they have the most amazing sunscreen ever! It's perfect under makeup because it's made of a water-like texture rather than the typical oily one, which basically means it won't make you look sweaty or greasy. If you can stand the smell (it smells heavily of alcohol, but don't worry, the smell will dissapear once you put it on your skin) this is definitely worth buying!

Bior sunscreen:


contains SPF 50
Is made of a water-like texture
does not leave a whitecast
protects your skin from both UVA and UVB's
Does not clog your pores
Is waterproof

YOU CAN BUY IT HERE

WHY ENGLISH?


Through social media I've come to know a lot of people from all over the world. Most of them don't speak Norwegian. Some of them read my blog regardless. So I wanted to make a blog in a language they could actually understand.
