About me :)

Hi my sweet readers!

My name is Cecilie. I’m 23 years old and I come from Norway.

I started this blog because I wanted to share my makeup interest and also to challange myself and hopefully inspire other makeup lovers.

I’m not a certified makeup artist, but after I’ve finished my bachelor in economics I hope to go to a makeup school. I’ve always loved makeup, ever since I borrowed my mothers red lipstick when I was 3 and secretly snoke around in my aunt’s makeup bag and put on her blush several times a day (and of course I thought no one would notice it ;) ).

I’ve been trough some crazy makeup stages, that probably most girls have. Like when I was 13, I thought I was very fashionable, matching my clothes and makeup. One day I could wear bright green clothes, with of course, bright green eyeshadow and the next day it would be all about pink. I still love colorful makeup, as you might see from my makeup looks, but my everyday makeup is mostly brown or bronzed and often with just a little pop of colour.

It was first when I turned 20, I really got passionate about makeup and started watching makeup gurus on youtube and reading makeup blogs and beauty books. I feel like I’ve learned a lot this way and now I thought I’d give something back, by sharing the things I’ve learned.

Now you know a little bit about me and I hope you enjoy my blog! :)

  1. My interest in make up came a little bit later than yours, but is never too late right?
    I am in the phase of “…started watching makeup gurus on youtube and reading makeup blogs and beauty books…”. Be proud of yourself, I consider you one of my “gurus” ;)
    I wish the products were easier to get (I live in Brazil), most of them are available in Ebay, but they take too much time to arrive (almost one month) and sometimes I just don’t have the patience to wait them to arrive.
    I already put your blog in my “favorites”, every time you post something new, probably I’m one of the first ones who read it.
    keep with the great ideas!
    see ya!

    • Wow! That’s a huge compliment to me!! Thank you so much, Bruna! :D
      I’ve learned a lot in just one year, so I guess you’re right: It’s never too late!

      Yes, the products from ebay use 2 – 4 weeks to arrive to Norway as well. I think I waited 3 weeks for those rhinestones. But when you first get them, I think it has been worth the wait. :)

      I just visited your blog and I love it! Thank you for posting my look :D I learned Spanish in school, but Portuguese is very different from it, so I google translated what you said, and thank you for your kind words! :)

      I’m so happy that you will be following my blog and I’ll definitely keep watching yours!

  2. I absolutely adore all your looks. They’re all so creative and unique (you’re also a big fan of blue like me so I especially love all your blue looks). I hope some day you make a Youtube channel as I would definitely be one of your 1st subscribers, I already have your blog in my favourites. Anyway just wanted to let you know how much I admire you :-)! your fan from Ireland!xx

    • Thank you SO much, Ursula! :D Blue is my absolute favorite color and I’m happy you like my blue looks! ^^ I would love to have you as a subscriber when I start making video tutorials! I’ve almost saved up enough for a video camera now, so it’s going to be soon.. hopefully! ;) Thank you for supporting me! <3

    • Thank you! :D My normal eyebrows or my glittery ones? lol :) I have a recent post where I show how I do my glittery brows. With my normal brows, I just comb them through, add some shadow with an angled brush and set them with wax. :)

  3. You’re makeup looks are AMAZING. I’m a senior in high school and when I graduate this spring I am going to beauty school. I have been watching YouTube videos constantly and I’m definitely glad you made the decision to share your amazing talent. Hope I’m as good as you when I finish beauty school! I love colorful bright makeup. Unfortunately, I do not have the money to buy the higher quality cosmetics, but I do the best I can. Always look forward to seeing new things from you! Love everything you come up with!

  4. Love your work. You’ve created some great looks!

    I’ve loved creating cool makeup looks for years but only in the past year have I really started to collect quality makeup.

    I’m from Canada and there’s a company here that specializes in glitter from my home city. Check out http://www.litcosmetics.com =) I think you’ll really be in to what they sell. Be careful though, I have already bought way more glitter than I probably ever should have but it’s way to much fun.

    Look forward to seeing some new looks from you!

    • Thank you so much, Kelsey! Glad you like my looks! ^^ Hehe, you can never get enough glitter! ;D I’ve been drooling over their glitter for a long time now, it’s just that I think it’s a bit expensive, especially when it has to be shipped to Norway! :P But I hope I will be able to buy these glitters in the near future! ;) Thank you for the suggestion, sweetie! :) Keep up having fun! ;)

  5. Hi
    I love your make-up I really want to learn how do it ! Iam not very good @ it soo I wish someone can teach me how do it . Do u have book or brouche to teach how ?
    Thanks

    • Hi Judy :) Thank you so much! ^-^ I just have a few tutorials here on my blog. If you want to learn how to apply makeup, you can search for “makeup tutorials” on Youtube. :)

  6. Your looks are amazing =) your really talented i wish i could be that good at doin makeup. Keep up the good work =)

  7. Hello! Just wanted to say that I am a makeup-junkie and fellow glitter-holic too. I often scan the internet for different makeup looks and haven’t come across much that was new or inspiring…needless to say I stumbled upon your site not long ago and have been truly amazed and inspired!!!!! What I really envy about your technique is the precision that you use. I find it is very hard sometimes to get a precise line, especially on both eyes > getting them to match up.

    Anyway…your site is now bookmarked on my computer and I look forward to following your different makeup looks!!! :D

    Olivia

    • Hi Olivia! :D How exciting to meet an other glitter-holic, hehe :D I don’t even know what to say… that my blog inspires you means everything to me!!! <3 Thank you SO much! ^-^ I think it's difficult to make both eyes match as well, but we just have to keep practicing! ;D I'm looking forward to having you as a reader!! :D Thank you again, sweetie!

      Cecilie

  8. Great job! I have been in the salon business for 25 years. You’re very creative! I am going to re-pin your photos so make up artists can get ideas. I am a distributor with Eye Kandy Cosmetics and our products will be perfect for your style. You may have seen our products on faces like Jennifer Lopez, American Idol contestants, Dancing with the Stars, and The Voice. Our glitter is safe and stays all day using our base, Liquid Sugar. For more info, email me at tinaciesla@charter.net.

  9. Me encanta!!!! Todo lo que haces.. tienes un arte hermoso…el maquillaje y las uñas son mi pasion y me gustaria aprender lo q haces..ツ

  10. Hei! :D Kom over youtube kanalen din i dag, har sminke intresser selv og blir veldig inspirert av deg, kommer du til å lage en tutorial mer detaliert på hvordan man lager smokey eye, på en måte hvilken bevegelser du må gjøre og hvor svart du påfører øyenskyggen ect? Hadde vert supert! digger cupcake looken <3 Kathrine.

  11. Hey Cecilie!

    I would love to know the make up literature you were reading, and what not. I found you through Make Up Geek <3 And I have watched pretty much all of you're videos, and studied photos. I love doing crazy looks, I have people that come into work just to see what make up I have on! But I do adore you're work, and hope to have you as an inspiration too! Also where do you get you're glitter, that you use for you're eyelashes? and I am also curious, where do you get the hearts, and other little rhinestones? I see it says ebay, but what's do you search for?

    Thanks so much! Cannot wait to see more of you're beautiful work!

    • Hey Rita-Marie :)

      I’m super happy you like my looks! :D Thank you! <3 Hehe, I love a girl who wears whatever makeup she wants, even to work! ;D I wrote one Norwegian book on beauty, that's all really… the rest I learned on Youtube :) I can't remember using glitter on my eyelashes. Which look is that? :) I use glitter from NYX, LA Splash, Julie de Lux and The Nail Dazzle. The Hearts are from LA Splash, called "Crimson Heart" and I bought them on http://www.cherryculture.com ;) You just search for "nail art rhinestones" on ebay :D

      xoxo

  12. Cecilie,

    You are very welcome! I constantly check in too see if you posted anything new! I do appereciate your reply, I promise I almost squealed in joy. Ha. Thanks so much for answering all of my questions. I guess my autocorrect on the laptop switched it from Eyebrows to eyelashes. Oops. I also wanted to let you know, you have inspired me so much! And I cannot wait to try my hand at a few of the looks that you have shown the beautiful world. Though obviously you and several other make up artists in the world have inspired to enroll in a school for make up. So I am pretty excited to learn, and experiment with that side of the spectrum. Though, I am rambling my friend! Again, Thanks so much.

    Happy Make Up Time! <3

    • Hehe, you’re so sweet! <3 :D Thank you very much, lovely!!! :D Hehe yes, then it's the glitter I mentioned, that I use on my eyebrows ;D
      Yay! Let me know if you try any of the looks! I'd LOVE to see!!! <3 <3 :-*

      Hehehe yes, Happy Makeup Time! <3 (love that) ^-^

  13. Hi Cecilie…may I have permission to use some of your tutorials on my blog, giving you credit for your work of course? I am from South Africa and we don’t have that many people here doing tutorials, especially picture tutorials. Also, can you tell me what camera you use to click your pictures be os they are super clear. Thanks. Reena

  14. Hi Cecilie

    I really love your looks! Where do you get your products from? Do you order them online and if so, do you need to pay import duties?

  15. hello,
    I came across your Youtube channel via pintrest. I have followed a few make tutorials on YouTube but yours by far has been the best EVER! I’m crazy about Mickey Mouse and when I saw that one I screamed. Yes a 37 year old woman who’s crazy over Mickey. I’m having my daughter’s birthday party and the theme is Cirque du soleil and your make up ideas are so perfect for what I want to do for her. Thank you so much for sharing and please keep the tutorials coming.

    • Hi Monica! :D What a super sweet compliment!!! <3 Thank you very much! :-* Hehe, I love that you're crazy for Mickey! I'm quite crazy about everything Disney, if you haven't already noticed! ;) What a great theme for a party! And I'm glad my looks can be of inspiration!! :D Thank you again and hope you and your daughter have a lot of fun at her birthday party!! :D

  20. You’re mermaid makeup tutorial was my absolute favorite. You’re so talented and everything you do I am in love with. You are an artist and it shows in all of your stunning, extremely talented, and super fun looks! I told all my friends about you because I’m obsessed.
