High end makeup always looks so amazing and glamorous online, but is it all really that good? Today I have found some products that I really hate and I’m using them all in this makeup look. It’s full face of makeup using products I hate. And I hope you like it.
2017 is long gone but I still wanted to come on here to talk about the best beauty advise I learned from the past year. I worked the whole year in Sephora and got to learn many things about both makeup and skincare. So I would say that my knowledge in the beauty world for sure got way bigger last year and here is what I learned about in 2017.
If you didn’t already know, I work as a professional makeup artist at Sephora and I always have the option to be creative with my makeup whenever I have to go to work. So I thought I would film the progress of me getting ready for when I go to work and just chatting whilst getting ready. You get to know me a bit better in this video and you see how I did this smokey eye with glitter.
I’m not the one who jump on the challenge bandwagon but this one was just too challenging to pass on. A full face using only one palette, also foundation, concealer and contour. So I decided to try it out and see how much I would fail.
Usually I do very bold looks on my channel because I love makeup and I love being creative. Because I’m working as a makeup artist it is fun to do some crazy looks to learn new techniques. In my every day life I often wear very neutral makeup because I’m often in a rush or I don’t need to wear a lot of makeup.
One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2018 is to be more creative with my makeup and not do so many soft brown smokey eyes. They have been seen before and I have done them a million and one time. This year it’s time for a change. I want to improve my makeup skills and I want to explore the world of colors even more than I did in 2017. That’s what I’m doing in today’s Youtube video.
I was never one of those girls who was in love with Marc Jacobs bags, laptop sleeves, iPhone cases and all the other things he designed. I thought they were a bit gimmicky. When I heard that he was launching a makeup line I wasn’t impressed either. You are free to call me a pessimist, because that’s my true self 89% of the time.
Do you remember the time when all the makeup that was launched was matte? That the cool kids were buying matte foundations and lipsticks even if they had dry skin and chapped lips? I remember those times and I actually still have some matte foundations that never even suited my skintype. Money well spent!
RawBeautyKristi has been a huge inspiration for me lately. It has been refreshing to see a Youtuber who shares a real side of their life and now just how perfect everything is. Right now that was just what I needed on YouTube, because everything just gets too pretty and fake sometimes.
I’m Danish, if you didn’t already know that. It means that I’m from the very small country Denmark in Scandinavia. Not many people know Denmark and where we are located in the world. We are the people who invented the term “hygge”.
