One Monday my morning got a whole lot more interesting, when my friend arrived to get her makeup done for Miss Finland 2022 Semifinals. Adele – or Adelaide Botty van den Bruele – actually made it to the finals and I’m so proud of her! She is someone who’s super supportive of her friends (me and this blog included) and she has a heart of gold. Definitely Miss Finland 2022 material.
Makeup Monday: Adelaide Botty van den Bruele
It was so nice to share the excitement, hear her practice her speak and just be a part of her special day. Who knows, maybe this makeup also brought her good fortune?
As for the makeup, I was inspired by her gorgeous green sequin dress and I chose colors that would suit that. It was really similar to the wedding makeup shared here (there’s a video tutorial). I had a vision in my mind, which turned out perfect (if I do say so myself).
Are we tired of Halloween skulls yet? I hope not, because I have two cool neon skull looks for you. The other one is more traditional with black, whereas the second skull is more glam and toned down with brown matte shading.
I got to collaborate with nobe and Suva Beauty on this on Instagram, but I figured I needed to share the looks on the blog as well (and tell you more about the amazing palette!).

Suva Beauty UV Taffies Hydra Fx Palette swatches & review
I had seen and heard of Suva Beauty and these amazing colorful liner palettes before. But I was still amazed of the quality and the amount of pigment these have! I have never owned makeup that is this bright. The UV Taffies palette has 5 bright colors that are activated with water. So you just wet your liner brush and dip into the color. It’s quite easy to get the right water-pigment ratio.
The colors looks beautiful and bright in natural light and they shine in UV light. Once these dry on the skin, they are really locked in and don’t fade. However, since they are water-based, I love how easily they’re washed off with water.
These colors work as a fun detail on every day looks, but obviously they really shine on Halloween or festival looks.
I also like the fine liner brush that comes in the palette. It’s great for details – the brush is dense, but flexible. Another brush I used for these looks is Suva Beauty’s Six Forty. It’s bigger and was more convenient for example on the bigger lines of the skulls.
Now tell me – which skull is your favorite? I actually had a mild nervous breakdown after one of these, thinking it was the ugliest thing ever. Then a few days after that I looked at the makeup again and realized both of the looks are pretty cool after all. I think we can blame the pregnancy hormones for this…
