BeautyBlog74-My perfect imperfections

Hi lovelies,

This tag has been going around for a while. I like it because besides looking at the imperfections we all feel we have (something that most people don't actually notice/care about) it also celebrates the ability to say nice things about yourself.

Therefore, this blog post is actually a bit more about me and a bit less about make up!

In my teens and early twenties, I struggled immensely with self-confidence issues - mainly about my body - but in the recent years, I've been inspired by so many strong and confident women, and have matured enough to say to myself: relax a little more, don't stress about the things you think other people see (because most times they really don't), and to just be more happy and more me! I do feel better about myself and I think that confidence has made me a more happy and relaxed person to be around!

SO first the three imperfections:

1) I seriously wish I had a nicer nose! Not the shape as much as the large pores and the fact that it gets soooo shiny/oily all the time! Luckily, I've learned make up tricks to minimize the shine and pores but still it bothers me a lot more than it should!
I always envy women with flawless skin and non-shiny t-zones;)

2) I hate the fact that my skin scars so easily and that the scars are so dark and hard to get rid of. No matter how small a wound, I have a scar for the next month (on my face) and even longer on my legs or arms. No remedy has been able to cure me of that! Maybe it has to do with my skin-tone or my skin in general, I don't know but I've thought of going to a dermatologist for advice.

3) I don't like to wear sleeveless tops or tank tops because I feel like my arm pits - or rather the skin on the front of my armpit towards my torso is way too bulky and fat (I know we are really getting into the small obsessive things now;)

Therefore on to the good and great things about myself!

1) I like my hair - most of the time - I never cared that much about it (having it cut or using the right shampoo) but I was always okay with how it looked - and since it's sooooo straight and without volume I kind of had to get used to it;) BUT there's nothing like newly washed hair that dries into soft layers;)

2) A strange thing: I like my cheekbones - the ones I never knew I had but discovered through make up and I really do believe they have become more define in the last few years- maybe my (teenage)face finally settled into its lines;) I like how they define my face more than before where I always felt my face was too round and too undefined.

3) I like my hands. They are pretty small - most people comment on how small my fingers are - but I never think about that. I like the actual hand-part of my hand. Is that weird? Possibly;) But I guess I like my entire hand the best, when I have my nails done. For some reason I pretty much have baby-soft skin on my hands.

So what are your perfect imperfections?

Please let me know in the comment box below!

BeautyBlog72-Introducing Fashionismycrush

Hi my lovelies,

Here is another one of those: You-just-have-to-watch-this-girl's-YouTube-videos-rave. I thought I'd give you a crash course on my favorite beauty gurus: Fashionismycrush - aka. Jen - make up junkies unite!

I've been following Jen for the last year - all of 2010 and the main reason I love Jen is because of her amazing overviews of brands - called Drugstore Diaries. In those videos she reviews an entire make up brand from lips, eyes to face products.

But she also does amazing haul videos - giving you great ideas of what and what not to spend you hard earned money on.

Here are some of my favorite videos and a way for you to get introduced to Jen and what she does best: share the love of make up;)

Drugstore Diaries:

Drugstore Diaries: NYX Cosmetics Review

Drugstore Diaries: Maybe It's Maybelline

Drugstore Diaries: UK Edition - Barry M Haul

Drugstore Diaries: Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation (aka Dream Creamy)

Hauls: (Danish readers of my blog can also order from CherryCulture.com! They have NYX and Milani products for cheap:) - AllCosmeticWholesale.com also ships internationally!

Sephora Friends & Family Sale Haul 2010

Cherry Culture Haul + A Blooper :)

Random Haul: Sephora & ACW

Finally, Jen has a great guide for you lucky U.S. people or international readers with the opportunity to shop at a CCO - Cosmetic Company Outlet Store that sells Estee Lauder owned make up brands with a huge discount (Clinique, Origins, MAC, Estee Lauder etc.) in the U.S. while on vacation!

All About CCOs & CCO'ing

So I hope you enjoy Jen's videos as much as I do!

BTW: Jen also does fashion Outfit of the Day stuff and has a blog

BeautyBlog71-My make up story

Hi lovelies,

A tag has been going around for a while now asking people to share they make up stories;)

So here's mine. Please share yours in the comment box below;)



1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I started wearing make-up when I was around 16. I wore it sparingly throughout 9th and 10th grade. Started wearing make up daily from the time I entered Gymnasium - when I was 17. However, I did not get into make up, You tube and all that good stuff until the late spring of 2008.

2. How did you get into makeup?
Two friends originally inspired me. The first let me use her face powder and brown eyeliner, and I loved it. The second taught me about black eye-liner. Youtube-wise the first big influences were: Panacea81, Xteeener and Kandee Johnson.

3. What are some of your favorite brands?
Drugstore: Revlon, Maybelline and NYX.
Higher End: Urban Decay, MAC and Chanel.

4. What does makeup mean to you?
I love how make up has increased my (self) confidence tremendously! Also I love to get creative, try out new things and colors! (Although I'm basically a neutrals girl!)

5. If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be?
Foundation, mascara, blush and eyebrow powder/chapstick.

6. What is your favorite thing about makeup?
How it can transform your face into something wonderful - it's still you but a prettier version;)

7. What do you think about drugstore makeup vs high end makeup?
I love both. High end tends to last longer in my basic stach but drugstore def. has had a great impact on my ability to experiment.

8. What is one tip of advice you can give to a beginner?
Start with neutrals! Watch videos, do research and then try it out!

9. What is one makeup trend you never understood?
Black lips, very colorful make up, and over contouring.

10. What do you think about the beauty community on YouTube?
I love it! I have really found an outlet for my interest, made great friends and I've become soo inspired!
