I never thought I would love a brown lipstick, but it just so happens that I do, and I also just bought mom jeans. It happened, okay?
And while I’m on the subject, I also never thought I would be the kind of person to ask Risto to buy “the good kitchen utensils”. But here I am, excited about kitchenware. And not laughing when he makes research for the best possible ones. Yes, he actually does that. One of the many reasons I love him.
Sometimes the trends just grow on you or you happen to try on a pair of jeans that feel like second skin. These are those kind of jeans. I love them. And since my sisters have already seen me show these a dozen times, I thought I would share my new awesome jeans with you.
Makeup Monday continues! In this series I have chosen some interesting people to sit in my makeup chair and fulfilled my vision for their makeup. Here is the fourth makeup transformation, featuring a dear friend of mine: Pinja.
Makeup Monday: Pinja
If you’ve read my blog before, you might recognize Pinja. She has starred in my blog before. We met at beauty school and Pinja actually sometimes acts as my personal beauty therapist. She is also a model, a blogger and an eager instagrammer. Her blog focuses on her trips and she started it when she lived in Australia for two years. Pinja is kind, loving and funny. She’s also very hard-working, so it was nice to see her after we both being busy with work and life.
Pinja has such beautiful features and I love to do her makeup. I planned this look around that gorgeous lip color. I used was *YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain in the shade 21. It’s the perfect Fall lip shade, a beautiful deep red. I paired the lip color with a simple eye makeup except that burgundy red liner. See how that makes her green eyes pop? If you have green eyes, here’s a full-proof way to accentuate them: put on some red there. That *NYX Faux Black Oxblood Liner is very long lasting.
Pinja has great brows already, but I made them even more perfect by adding some brow strokes using a new product I received from GOSH. That brow product has found its way into my makeup bag, it’s so good. I also tried a new blush by Clarins.
And hey – make sure to follow Pinja on her Instagram!
