Snow and Makeup Experiments.

Now Playing: Natalia Kills - Mirrors

Hi There!

So I've caught a cold and stayed home from school today. So yeah I went to bed and slept for a few hours and when I woke up... This:
It is snowing again! D: I know snow is extremely beautiful but I'm just not in the mood for a winter wonderland anymore. Plus it's just extremely cold. Ugh.

But well until now I've spent the day under my blankets with a cup of warm black currant juice with honey. Really that's the best when you've got a cold. Or warm milk with honey. Anyway xD Then I started some makeup experiments. Oooh it was fun. I love experimenting with make up. This time I was very inspired be the lovely Adora BatBrat. I actually really like how it turned out!
I know there are some eyeshadow fall-puts and that it's a bit messy.. but I like it :D
But now I'll make another cup of black currant juice and jump back under my blankets and maybe get some sleep. :)

Hi There!

Okay, I told you I was going to Kolding with my sister to do some shopping, and I ended up buying a lot more than planned. But I'm very happy with everything I bought, so now I'll show you what I got. :)

(click the pictures to enlarge)

I ended up buying seven bottles of nail polish. I actually don't wear nail polish that often but somehow I've got a huuge collection (28 bottles), and I always love buying new ones. Plus those were really not very expensive, so I just had to buy them. I already have a few nail polishes from Depend and they are really good, I also like that you get them in small bottles. The right one is a top coat polish. The other ones are from Flying A which should be a pretty good brand, but I've never tried them before.

I actually didn't know they had a Make Up Store in Kolding, so that was a great surprise. I love Make Up Stores products and I've wanted a cake liner for a long time now, so of course I had to buy one and then I also bought that very thin eyeliner brush. I tell you it draws really well, so be prepared for weird eyeliner experiments ;D

Now look at these pretty black pumps. I think they are sooo pretty and they were really and it was a real bargain (100dkr instead fo 300dkr!!). They are about 7cm(~2,5inches). I love that they are not that high, so  would actually be able to wear them a whole evening and even though they are very simple they're really pretty.

And then I bought a complete new outfit. I really like the cute red/black dress and I'm sure it'll be great in summer. It's a long time since I last had a dress that I can actually wear for everyday :) The black blazer is really awesome too and it has pockets!!! That are not stitched up. Okay that's might a weird thing to be happy over, but all of my cardigans doesn't have pockets and that gets really annoying when I wear skirts XD and yes the leggins are new too, but they are not that special. Just regular black leggings. :3

And that was all! I'm very happy with everything I bought and I'm sure I can use all of it. And plus I had an absolutely gread day with my sister. We had a lot to talk about and had a lot of fun. I'm sure we'll repeat it sometime again.

Versatile Bogger - Facts :3

Listening to: Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars

Hi There.

So, I have been awarded with The Versatile Blogger Award.Thank you very much to the lovely miss Sally Slander for giving it to me :) ♥ The mission is to tell seven facts about yourself and then pass the award on to 7 other bloggers!

Here we go:
- 1. I love my hair and I love that it's finally gotten really long, but I'm not bein particulary nice to it ^^; I wash and blowdry it almost every day, dye it and all in all just don't treat it very well ;b
- 2. I am obsessed with make up. I have way too much and I can't stop buying new.
- 3. I wish I would be better with fashion and clothing. I would love my clothing style to be more gothic or Emilie Autumn inspired or just anything that would be more "extreme" or consistent, but I always end up wearing kinda plain outfits. It is always somewhat alternative but I would love it to be more eye-catching.
- 4. I am always extremely afraid of people not liking me and often got the feeling that people are just annoyed by me and/or my presence.
- 5. I love drawing but I'm not particulary good at it.
- 6. I'm trying to make my english as perfect as possible.
- 7. I want spiderbite piercings.

I don't know if I can come up with seven other bloggers, but I'll see how many I can find ;D
In a World of Monochrome
Explosive Pokemons

three of seven. Well I can't come up with more. so whatever. feel honoured. or something ;DD

Random Update

Listening to: Banana Pancakes - Jack Johnson

Hi There!

There's not much going on at the moment to be honest. We're having a project week at school... about yeast. I tell you it's boring!! We've made two experiments/tests (Which one to use here?) Where we've been doing such interesting things as counting bubbles and watching graphs. We have three different teachers for this week; our chemistry teacher, our math teacher and our biology teacher. All the subjects I really suck in. Yay.
And our math teacher and our biology teacher are actually okay. At least they manage to help me understand what the hell I'm doing, but our chemistry teacher is really no help at all. He just confuses me (and the whole class) even more. Really. Noone in the class likes him. But well, lets see how it will turn out.
I have to hand in an assignment about yeast monday in two weeks. Good that we've got some extra time for the assignment. I'll need it ;b

In the weekend I'll go shopping with my sister!! :D My sister really means everything to me and about a month ago she moved in with her boyfriend so she now lives half an hour away from me. Before that she lived in Copenhagen, which is 3½ hours away with train, so I'm happy!! So she'll pick me up saturday morning and then we'll go to Kolding which is a city about an hour away where they have a big shopping center and then will spend some hours there! I'm so happy. It may not be that long since I've last seen her but it's a long time ago since it was only us doing something together.. so yeah, can't wait! 8D

Also, it's not completely dark anymore when I go to school in the morning! Which means it'll soon be spring! :D I know I'm a bit early but I really miss the sun. The darkness all the time is almost getting me depressed. I miss the sun on my face. I wanna be able to wear a t-shirt outside without having to wear cardigans and jackets over it to keep warm. I'll probably have to wait some time for that to happen but that it's not as black as night when I go to school already makes it a lot better :D

Oh and also!! Why havn't I mentioned it here already? I'm going to SCOTLAND for some days in the easter holidays :) I'm going to see a lot of friends that I havn't seen for a long time. I'm sooo excited! I have missed these people a lot. It's actually an 18th birthday party that has also somehow turned into a meet-up. It's gonna be epic, I'm sure. Also I've missed travelling. And I've never really been travelling on my own so I'm sure the travel over there is also gonna be somehow interesting xD I usually hava a good sense of orientation but somehow also have a talent for getting lost, weird combination I know. But I'm sure it'll work out fine :)

That's it for now.

Top 5 - Favourite Youtube Make Up Channels!!

Listening to: Clint Eastwood - Gorillaz

Hi There.

First of all, I HAVE 10 FOLLOWERS! 8DDD I know it's not really a lot.. but it makes me happeh ^_^

okay no vlogging. 'cause I suck and have decision difficulties >< xD but I feel motivated to update now, and it's gonna be about my favourite youtube make up channels :D

I have learned a lot (almost everything) of my knowledge about make up on youtube. And I think that I'm kinda good with make up. See, you can learn something from the internet! ;Dn So now, I'm going to post my 5 favourite make up channels, with link to their channel + one of their videos (so you can get an idea of what kind of makeup they are doing.)

Here we go, here's my top 5:

A guy that applies makeup, what a start ;)  But petrilude (aka Josh) is a real wonder with make up. He's a drag queen and he has some tutorials on drag make up, but also a big variety of other make up tutorials, that often work very well for parties and clubbing. There are also videos about skincare, brushes, wigs, false lashes, etc. And he also has lot of halloween makeups that are absolutely great! Really they are so kickass awesome! :D 
The video I'll post from him is one of his drag tutorials, which, in my opinion, is sooo lovely! Check it out:
P.S. He also has some really great giveaways from time to time ;)

I found this lovely make up artist on deviantArt, where she posted pictures of her make up, and from there I found her youtube channel. Unfortunately she only has a few videos and she hasn't updated for quite a long time (exactly a year today, I just realised^^) but her makeup is really eyecatching. If you want to see more of her makeup then I would really recommend visiting her deviantArt gallery. She is truly amazing. I found her because an Emilie Autumn inspired look, that looks seriously good. She also has some great make up with drawings of Tim Burton films around her eye. But enough about her dA. Here's the video from youtube:

Michelle Phan is probably one of the most known make up artists on Youtube. She has a lot of different make up tutorials, including everything from very basic and simple and light make ups to make up for dress up. She also has a lot of videos about skincare, facial masks and face cleaning. Lately she has added two more persons to her channel; Chriselle for fashion and Krista for hair tutorials. They both do very good videos but I still like Michelle's the most :) 
Here's one of her tutorials:

Ashley has a lot of beautiful make up tutorials. I love her style and she has tutorials for both pin up and futuristic make up, and a lot in between ;)I found her when I was looking for a make up tutorial on Amber Sweet from Repo! The Genetic Opera and then her tutorial showed up. I think her tutorials are very inspiring. She also has a few hair tutorials.

Last but definitely not least is the lovely Adora! I love her channel so much. Unfortunately she only has a very few (but gorgeous) make up tutorials, but still there is a lot of other great stuff on her channel! Adora is a Swedish model and a great make up artist too! 

And that's it. My Top 5!

I'll recommend you another youtuber, that doesn't do makeup tutorials but still is absolutely great!

Rockabillie a.k.a Cira Las Vegas, is an extremely beautiful and very talented youtuber. She comes from Germany and is a tattoo artist. She has the most beautiful style and an amazing singing voice. Her channel contains music/covers, some artwork, Vlogs and hair tutorials. She has a really beautiful voice and she plays guitar herself.

Her hair tutorials are really great too, and she has a tutorial on sugar skull/Dia de los Muertos make up that is  so amazing. But, if you like pin up hair then go check out her tutorials, 'cause they are really worth it. :)

Oaky that's really everything now :) hope you liked it and that there might be someone who you want to subscribe to!
