Almost a year of work, planning and stress is almost over as Stavanger Fashion Night is almost upon us! Although I am officially on maternity leave (Baby Varg is now 5 weeks old and soooooo cute!) I am the Head Makeup Artist for the show and have been busy designing looks, scrounging makeup, putting together an awesome team and a million other tasks. Now it is less than a week until curtain time…

I am so very busy with #stavangerfashion but I did manage to make time to have a good look at the September edition of the Lip Factory Box and oh boy it was a goodie! Take a look at what the wonderful LF crew sent over the ocean to me. I have also decided to try a new format for the beauty boxes I review. Instead of having one huge monster review post of each item I will instead from no one be…

First, let’s define indie. According to Merriam-Webster, indie is, “one that is independent; especially: an unaffiliated record or…

This is just a little PSA for  my friends both this side and across the pond. Over in Europe we have Max Factor which our American friends pine for and in the USA you have Covergirl which us Europeans equally covet. Yet these two brands are infact sister companies/brands and many of their products are the same but packaged differently. For example, take the much hyped Covergirl Clump Crusher…

I am still enjoying the Anita Grant Eyeshadows I received – Thanks Anita! And thought I would share another little step by step of a look I wore recently. In my original review post I raved about how awesome Roasted Pear is. It is a seriously foiled and classy bronze which in the swatch I applied pretty heavily to get this look:

I am sure my readers know me well enough by now to know that I cannot walk past a makeup shop without splurging on a Lipstick, or 12. Well I managed some self restraint the last time I visited MAC and only bought exactly what I needed to restock my Bridal Kit or and a lip stick and lip liner … for science.

I noticed that although I have a huge amount of pink lipstick, most of the pinks I own are…

I have been busy enjoying playing with my Anita Grant Hello Beautiful Mineral Eyeshadows and was super pleased to find out that they are all LIP SAFE! I love the Little Sparrow Cosmetics Lipstick in shade Lilac but it is very pale, so sit back and take a look at how to use an eyeshadow to create a custom lip colour!

Dr. Who Nail Tutorial


Did anyone else see the season premiere of Doctor Who last weekend? I did! And as a true whovian I just had to make some Doctor Who inspired nailart.


These are just a simple cartoon of the TARDIS and the Doctor Who logo.


I used last weekends galaxy nailart as a base for this design. Using last weeks mani is a great way to save your favourite look for a little longer by breathing new life into…
