Beauty advice from a Scandinavian girl…

ImageEnglish: I’m amazed about how wonderful Jada Pinkett Smith looks for her age, the woman is 41!! Some people age with grace but Jada doesn’t age at all! Seriously, it looks like she’s in her late 20’s or early 30’s. So what’s her big beauty secret? Jada is obsessed with products from a company called Carol’s Daughter, how obsessed? Enough to buy shares in it…they have products for everything from your hair to your skin and I swear that their company site is pure beauty porn. Besides their products she also uses John Friedas Frizz Ease line for her hair.

Svenska: Jada Pinkett Smith ser oförskämt bra ut för sin ålder och använder produkter från Carol’s Daughter och John Friedas Frizz line för att ta hand om både sin hy och sitt hår.

English: Naomi Watts almost always goes for a natural makeup look something that goes perfectly with her fair complexion and blonde hair. Think a nude or light pink lip matched with a natural earthy toned eye shadow and a hint of mascara in a brown color. Brown mascara works amazing on blondes, especially if you are going for that everyday-girl-next-door look that everybody loves. Naomi takes care of her blonde looks with Moroccan Oil – Light Oil Treatment and Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Flat to Volume Shampoo. To keep her skin radiant she uses Environ Skincare and stays out of the sun!

Svenska: Naomi Watts makeup är oftast ganska neutral med en nude eller lätt rosa mun som grund. Detta passar hennes blonda hår och ljusa hy alldeles utmärkt, ett tips om du har likande färger är att använda dig av en brun mascara för ett mjukare intryck. För att vårda sitt hår använder hon sig av Moroccan Oil – Light Oil Treatment och Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Flat to Volume Shampoo. Hon älskar även Environ hudvård och undviker solens skadliga strålar.

ImageEnglish: Candice Swanepoel, the Victoria Secret model who went from being a beautiful brunette to a bronzed and drop dead Gorgeous blond.  Words are unnecessary because who wouldn’t want to look like this top model? Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t she remind you a little of Cameron Diaz?

I had to do some serious research to find out about her favorite beauty items because when ever asked, she, as every other Victoria Secret model, would give an inventory of the Victoria Secret beauty products…but we all know that they are using some other amazing products and Candice loves: Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense, NARS Illuminator and Eucerin moisturizer.

Svenska: Candice Swanepoel är en Victoria Secrets modell och en motivering till varför man vill se ut som denna bronzade och blonda gudinna är väl ganska överflödigt. Hon påminner lite om Cameron Diaz och jag tanker dagdrömma hela våren om att se ut som henne i sommar. En bra start kan vara att pröva hennes skönhetsfavoriter som består av: Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense, NARS Illuminator and Eucerin moisturizer.

English: There are a few women whose personal style; their choice of makeup and hairstyles and their sense of fashion that combined create that perfect look. I call them my beauty and style inspirations. I will try and show you who they are and what they do that makes my heart skip an extra beat. I will start with Miss Ellen Pompeo.

ImageShes the actress who achieved the natural look that are often talked about in terms of ”the girl next door look”. I have a weakness for a perfectly highlighted hair that makes it look like it has just been kissed by the sun, if you combine that with radiating skin touched by bronzers and highlighters then you get Ellens perfect look.

According to her beauty favorites are; Tarte Lip Gloss, Jing Jang Crème,Tarte Cheek Stain in Blushing Bride, Mario Badescu Facial Spray and Lauren Hutton Passport To Africa.

Personally I’m not a fan of the Mario Badescu Facial Spray but I would love to get my hands on the Jing Jang Créme and the Tarte Cheek Stain. Something that is nearly impossible if you live in Scandinavia…and being beauty obsessed that won’t stop me from trying…

Svenska: Ellen Pompeo har den där eftersträvansvärda “The Girl Next Door look”. Jag har en svaghet för ett perfekt solkysst hår i kombination med en strålande hy som framhävs av bronzers och higlighters.

Enligt så är hennes skönhetsfavoriter; Tarte Lip Gloss, Jing Jang creme, Tarte Cheek Stain i Lyckliga Bride, Mario Badescu Facial Spray och Lauren Hutton Passport till Afrika.

Personligen är jag inte ett fan av Mario Badescu Facial Spray, men jag skulle vilja pröva Jing Jang Créme och Tarte Cheek Stain. Något som är nästan omöjligt om du bor i Skandinavien…
