Aurora Halloween Borealis


Jenny and Dany asked me to do a makeup based on Aurora boreali, aka. Northern Lights.
I wanted to do something, dark but still colorfull, mystical and beautiful.

This is how it came up:


MAC Blacktrack p/p
MAC Painterly p/p
MAC Kelly Green pigm.
Pure Luxe Tangarine
Gosh Blue Whale effect powder
Gosh Fox effect powder
Wet'n'Wild Megaliner (teal/green)
MAC Smoothblue technakohl
MAC Reflects Rust glitter
Gosh Holographic Silver effect powder

I know it's a bit peacock-ish, but I have to admit that I like it. It's what I wanted to be: Dark but still colorful, mystical but kinda beautiful.
I also destroyed my falsies accidentally while doing this makeup. :/ Have buy new ones tomorrow I guess :P
Then I was asked to do makeup ideas for older women, something quite neutral, without being boring. Well, I maneged to do a "boring" neutral, which makes me look a bit sick:

MAC Painterly p/p
MAC Malt  e/s
MAC Off the Page e/s
MAC Cranberry e/s
MAC Polished Ivory pigm.
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
MF FLE mascara

Then I made a Halloween makeup for MakeupGeek's Idea Gallery (though I don't know will I upload it there):

MAC Painterly p/p
Nyx Jumbo Pencil Milk ( base on whole eyearea + upper lashline)
MAC Off the Page e/s (lid + on Gosh effect powder + lower lashline)
Mschic Mineral black (crease)
Gosh Golden Gate effect powder (above black)
Wet'n'Wild Megaliner (upper lashline)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline (waterline)
StarGazer red eyeliner (blood effects)
MF FLE mascara

And finally my LOTD:

MAC Greenstroke p/p
SMH Metro e/s (lid)
MAC Teal pigm. (crease + above)
SMH Bee's Knees(highlight)
Wet'n'Wild Megaliner (upper lashline)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline (waterline)
MF FLE mascara


  1. I am speechless, everything is soooo beautiful! Your Northern Lights look is just fabulous! would you allow me to repost it on my Tumblr?

  2. Thank you!
    And of course dear, go ahead :D

  3. Gotta admit, you succeeded, very much! It has the magical kinda feeling, same when watching borealis :) NICE <3

  4. Wow....beautiful. I love looking at your talent. It is very inspiring.

  5. Hi There! Love LOTD. I am 50 and I copy your LOTD often. The brown older look you did is nice, but I love the wild stuff you do! Today's AB look is FAB!!!

  6. OMG!!! That's all I can say! Your aurora boreali look it's AWESOME! Thank you so much for posting it! It is, as you said a bit dark, but very nice and colorful.

    I liked the other looks as well, really nice!

    Take care!

  7. this looks like a peacock feather too :)

  8. Absolutley beautiful, I love the northern lights one. I grew up in Sweden (now in OZ) and I have seen it many times, and it isn't always light as you see in photos or on TV. Sometimes it is just the way you did it dark and mysterious. You did a great job capturing the alluring shades, I am sure that the girls that requested this would be over the moon, if not over Lappland.
    I think you should send the picture to Marlena, I am sure she would love the picture, it looks great with the contacts in.

    By the way I loved the FOTD so much I copied it straight away for today. It is absolutely gorgerous. Thank you yet again for sharing your magic with us.

  9. That northern lights look is to die for. You are a beautiful artist.

  10. hi

    i couldnt help myself but praise you on my blog. you are crazy talented and i envy you.

    you also inspired me to buy some mschic loose eyeshadows, as i never heard of the brand before. couldnt find an actual review of them on your blog, but seein that you constantly use them in your beautiful creations, i figured you must be satisfied by their performance :)

    cant wait to see more creations :D


  11. Wow! I saw your halloween look on makeupgeek's blog and instantly thought "I have to check out her blog".

    I'm so glad I did! Your looks are amazing, you are very talented, you're going on my follow list.
