The other day my friend Viktoria and I met up for a fun day doing makeup together. We had decided to do Halloween makeup this time now that the weekend it's approching. Viktoria has gone to school for makeup and is so amazing at it! We started our makeup session by looking up looks we would like to try. Victoria decided to do a clown makeup on herself first and she showed me a deer makeup that she thought would look cool to my red hair and brown eyes! I have to say that I'm really happy about how my Bambi look turned out, considering that I kind of just started experimenting with makeup! Looking at the pictures afterwords I have to say however that I look like a mix between princess Leia and a lion with my red spacebuns, haha! But I really liked the deer makeup, fun idea for a Halloween party! For our second look we decided to try a vampire look on us both! I had bought some Halloween candy for us to eat while doing the makeup and among the things were candy blood bags containing a strawberry liquid. We thought that the fake blood bags would be such a fun prop for a photo that we decided to go with the vampire makeup for look number two. I did my base and eyeshadow and Viktoria made our bloody makeup! It turned out sooo amazing!! I loved how real she made the vampire bite look and the blood spatter was incredible. Also a fun look if you are looking for a more darker custome for halloween.

The candy blood bags are bought from Dollarstore in Sweden.

My favorite picture of Viktoria's clown look!
I really liked the idea to have glitter around the eyes, really made the makeup pop.

I asked my hairdresser for advice on a good heath protecter for my hair, I've tried several ones from different chains but I felt like trying one from an actual hair place this time. I haven't felt like the ones I have tried in the past have helped that much and they've always had a too strong scent to me. Among the ones she recommended was the ELENI & CHRIS one. I feel really lucky with my hair, it's naturally shiny and has some volume but I'm in a period right now where I love to curl my hair so I feel that it's nice to try a heat protection creme to protect it from the heat of the curling iron. This creme apperently provides more than the heat protection, it's also supposed to strenghten, smooth and rebuild your hair, so it seems lika a really good all in one lotion if you feel like you want that. She told me that one application after a shower lasts you up to 5 more showers before you have to apply again, so the 150ml (5.1 fl oz) will last you awhile. It cost me 289sek which is about 36 dollars. Pretty pricey but it feels like a regular price if you want to try a proffestional product, and since it will last a while I felt like it was worth a try. I love the scent of the product, I feel like I just walked out of the hair salon when I wear it, it's not too strong in anyway, it's just perfect. Happy that I decided to try this product! If you know of a good hair product, make sure to comment on this post!

Hair & Makeup

I have never been very good at doing hair or make up, I've always found it pretty hard actually! But the past year I've had a lot of fun with it and I really want to learn more and improve my make-up skills. I have truly found that a lot of practice does give results, and I'm so excited about that! I bought this new palette the other week, the Mega Nudes 2 palette by technic. It's really good if you're on a budget at the moment, or if you're like me and want to practice with new colors. I actually bought mine in a Dollarstore here in Sweden. Nothing fancy, but a good start for me. Pictures below from when I tried some of the colors out today!
