New Year, More Girl Power! 💪🏼

Happy New Year Everybody! New year, new me is what a lot of people are walking around saying. It’s funny when you think about it, every time we start on a new year, it’s like everybody gets to start over, or at least everybody wants to shake the old year of them and they get excited to create a new and better version of themselves. It’s kind of nice that we do get to have that feeling every time we change the year on our calendar. This year I want to start things of differently than we have before. 

I’m not going to preach a new year new me situation here, but I do want to start the year with a talk about girls supporting girls. You don’t really get a look into the friendship that is between Tanja and myself here on the blog, but today I will give you an insight into one of the things we highlighted in our friendship, support! We have always supported each other, but I guess 2018 was a year where we supported each other in a different way than we have done before, and that lead to a lot of good talks! 

If there is one thing I have learned in life, is that nobody is meaner to each other than girls. Girls are really good at tearing each other down, making each other feel like they are worth nothing, and comparing each other in a negative way, because you must drag somebody down to make somebody else feel good, which shouldn’t be true, and it isn’t. 

Comparing yourself to others is something Tanja and I have talked about a lot. Sometimes you can feel lost, and feel like everybody else is moving forward, and doing something, while your life isn’t going anywhere. We have helped each other out when we started to compare ourselves to others, but without dragging other people down. We also worked on just building each other up reminding each other how good the other person is, because sometimes you forget the things you are cable of doing. You forget how smart you are, and you forget how hardworking you, so it’s always good to have a best friend to remind you of it. Just remember to build up and not tear down. Support the girls that are around you!

I hate when I see a “who wore it better” because normally both women look amazing in the clothing they are wearing, so I feel like the answer always should be both. It is okay to say one styled it more to your liking, but that doesn’t mean the other doesn’t look good in it. So just remember it’s okay to be more positive towards one, but it doesn’t mean the other one should be covered with negative words or be ripped a part.  

I know this is a different type of blog post from us, but I hope that girls supporting girls will get even better in 2019, and the next time you compare two girls or women to each other, that you will do it without tearing one down. 

Once again Happy New Year and Welcome to 2019! 

Idé til et farverigt nytår

Nytår nærmer sig stille og roligt og her er et forslag til et lidt anderledes nytårslook. I stedet for at det altid bliver det klassiske sorte eller brune smokey eye, er her et look, hvor lilla er stjernen kombineret med en smule glitter, da det jo er nytår.

 

Front Cover

Jeg har brugt en af Sleeks i-Divine mineral based eye shadow palettes i Vintage Romance 141, glitteren er Urban Decays øjenskygge i Space Cowboy, og så har jeg brugt en sort flydende eyeliner. Inden jeg begyndte looket, har jeg primet med Nars Pro-Primer smudge Prof eyeshadow base, og derefter har jeg brugt NYX  jumbo eye pencil i 604 Milk, som er en hvid base farve, som får farverne til at poppe endnu mere, så den lilla farve virkelig kan stå frem.

Nytårs makeup

 

Jeg startede med at bruge farven “Propose in Prague,” som er en varm brun farve, som jeg lægger i globelinjen, for at gøre det lettere at tone de lilla farver ud. Derefter lagde jeg farven “Marry in Monte Carlo”på hele øjenlåget efterfulgt af ”Honeymoon in Hollywood” i det ydre V af øjnelåget. For at få farven mørkere brugte jeg ”Bliss in Barcelona”. Derefter blender jeg det godt med den første farve, som jeg lagde i globelinjen. Hvis du føler at øjenlågs farven er svundet lidt, kan der tilføjes noget mere, hvorefter der skal blendes igen.  Dernæst tilføjer jeg glitter i midten af øjenlåget, eyeliner og en masse mascara. Man kunne sagtens gøre looket endnu mere dramatisk ved at tilføje “Bliss in Barcelona” ¾ dele af vejen ind mod øjet langs den nederste vippekant.

Til dette look ville jeg bruge en sart lyserød eller en ferskenfarvet blush. Da looket er så farverigt, ville jeg ikke vælge noget, der er for kraftigt. På læberne ville jeg læne mere mod en helt enkel naturlig læbe, men hvis man er på den modige side kan man sagtens gå efter noget med lidt farve i.
