Daily inspiration, eyeliner

Eyeliner is described as a cosmetic applied as a line around the eyes to make them appear larger or more noticeable. It’s just that it’s not that easy to get it right. It either gets too thick, clumps or becomes a skew line. But it is looks great when done right.

Sometimes I think an outfit is more complete when add-ons of any kind have been added. It is not always that it needs to be accessories, at least not for me. It depends on what is meant with accessories as well. I am fond of scarves & shawls for example. And shoes, well bags too. It’s the small details that sometimes determines whether an outfit is perfect or not. Such as having the wrong shoes to certain clothes. It sounds like it is not the whole world, which it of course isn’t, but now when we are talking about this, so why not.

I would love to claim that shoes are accessories. But I have friends who absolutely would not agree. No matter what where the dividing line are, here are a mixture of different accessories.

Colourful taste

I find that every time I try to put together images with lots of color – I fail to do so. I can’t manage to choose something that is overly colourful. I discover after a while, when I’m looking at the whole thing, that I have unconsciously opted out of that which is too colourful. Now when we just finished renovating the shed, I had thought that I should paint the walls of other than the usual white. Possibly paint the concrete floor instead of the use of the ordinary wood floor & so on. And what happened – in some strange way, we now have white walls, a light wooden floor, white furniture, etc. It’s funny how all this can happen even though my thoughts went in another direction. Is it the power of habit, perhaps.

The images below are in colour but it’s not overly colourful, as you can see. Although it’s enough colour, at least for my part. You could say it became something in between. With a white base or a simple base, you can add color without risking that it becomes too much. Or you can use as much color as you want if that’s what you prefer. This is more then enough as inspiration, for me.

Make up spot / 142

Hej friends,

We have three bathrooms & one would like to think that it’s more then necessary for a family of four. Yet it takes time for the other three in the family to be ready. They could be standing in front of the mirror, for ever, if they could, beleive me. There are hair dryers, hair straightener, gels, spray, earrings, eye liner … well, you name it. I haven’t even mentioned their problems to choose outfits yet. And these three, is thus my two sons & my dear husband. No teenage girls, as one might think.

Anyway, it’s all right during the week, by all means, as we all have different times. But on weekends it is a constantly bickering. It’s bad enough having to wait for them to be done, but even worse that when they are ready to go, they go out to the car & sits down to wait three seconds before they start sound the horn … just when I finally have got access to the bathroom. Well, maybe I just should be grateful because they care about how they look. Who knows…

Given my small everyday concerns, I have been looking up different expressions on dressing table that might inspire you. Not that I think I’d have the place in peace. Since my youngest son often looks through my makeup bag, he would love the idea of a make-up spot:)
