This post is timed and I am right now (when this is published) at the Swedish Beauty & Cosmetics Awards 2017, woop woop! :)
I'll meet up Elin Fagerberg and Linda Hallberg for a glass of wine before and then we go there together. Gonna be so nice! I'm going to the gala for the 4th year in a row and it's always so luxurious with 3-course meals, entertainment and above all focus on what I love most - beauty products ♥ And this year it's also 10 years anniversary and we will be at City Hall in Stockholm so it will probably be extra grand this year, I suspect.
Keep an eye on my Insta Story (@ imakeyousmile.se), where I will post a lot during the evening :)
Today's make - up is kind of the fastest gala make - up I have ever done haha! Due to unplanned events this morning, time rushed away and I finally had only 50 minutes to get ready, which is not a very short time but if you take all the make-up pictures, get dressed, pack your things and then run to the bus … Then it's a short time, to be before a gala hehe.
But it went well anyway! Not completely flawless but no one should look so closely;)
Foundation - Yag Mineral Foundation (Soft Latte)
Concealer - gloMinerals Under Eye Concealer (beige)

Love the combo with the lip balm together with the lip liner, because it will be nice, comfortable and durable and very easy to improve. The lip balm pigmentes the lips a little so you always have a little color even when the cream has disappeared, and the lip pencil in the contours is like a slap. So a little lip balm in the middle of the lips when refilling is only needed, then it's done :)
Photographed the picture in a bit out of focus so that you can see the glitter better, nice huh?
The glittery eye shadow is actually not an eye shadow but the new nail glitter IsaDora Chrome Nail Powder in shade 10 Mirror Silver. What you put on the nail to give a metallic effect you know? :) It works really well! The glitter climbs up a little when you blink for a few hours, however, but do not think it does anything - but can be good to know. On top of that, it sits like a charm, had a little extra sticky eyeshadow primer under just.

The hair is still unfixed in the pictures but I now have curly with crooked legs and all the hair on one side (a little messy-style) and a small baked-in braid on the other side. Really nice! You can see pictures on my Insta Story! Ämma fixed my hair when I came to work - perfect with my own hair stylists;) Ämma has an internship with us all spring and is in her final year of high school (makeup & stylist) and is extremely good! She is like a finished makeup artist already in my opinion, so impressed and feels very nice hihi.
Hope you like the look!
