My Skincare Routine Products (Anti-Age, Dry & Sensitive Skin, Atopic Eczema)

Judging by my brush cleaning video, people are more interested in looks than videos like that, so I was a little hesitant when I got the idea for this video. But when I asked on facebook, you seemed to like the idea, so here it is! The video ended up being 22 minutes long, wow. Hopefully it's interesting enough. I'll probably add time stamp links to the different sections in the video in the description on youtube.
I was planning to do a look with some new eyeshadows I had ordered, but the postal service fucked up everything. By the time I realized something was wrong, the package was already back in the US, returned without me ever being notified that it was here (it was in Norway for over 2 weeks, I had no idea). So I've been yelling at them, and now I have to wait until it arrives at the seller's to determine what happens next. It's crazy, I am so mad. Several people I've talked to has mentioned terrible experiences with ordering stuff to Norway too. NORWAY, STEP UP YOUR GAME.
Anyway, I bought 5 new Nivea products for really cheap; most of them my first anti-age products. So I wanted to share that, in addition to what else I use for my dry and sensitive skin - and why not throw in some eczema stuff in there as well.

Here's a handy list of all products mentioned:

  • Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation - Concentrated Skin-Refining Serum
  • Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizing Day Cream (SPF 15)

From Ink To Blush - Death (Sandman)



You better enjoy this one! Painting my face white like that was the worst. But I liked the eye look! Though I would do something around those lines sometimes when I go out. So since I've been reading The Sandman by Neil Gaiman the past month or so, I figured I would end my comic book character series with the greatest one of them all; Death. I mean, can any goth girl (or guy, or whatever you are) say that she's not great? I'm pretty sure a lot of goths in the 90's copied her look (much like males would copy The Crow, though that look isn't as flattering nor cool anymore). She's a classic goth beauty, and you can do so much with her look! She looks different basically every time you see her in the comics, and I love it.
So I inspired my look off of what I've seen her wear in the comics, and I guess a little from Siouxsie Sioux as well, cause I've always in my mind pictured them as having similar make-up for some reason. And hey, they're both the biggest female goth icons! There aren't as many of those, I feel (as in, in the actual bands - there are more female goths in bands and in general NOW, but I haven't seen so many from way back when. Please enlighen me if you know of some cool ones! Yes, I know about Patricia Morrison of course.).
Anyway, without further or do, I present to you my interpretation of Death!

Monster High - Abbey Bominable




Hey! I revisit my Monster High series with Abbey Bominable, in a violet, pink and blue color explosion. I'm gonna do a few more in the series, so look out for that in the next couple of months! I have them planned, and of course will space them out with other videos in between.
Selecting the perfect shades for this look was SO hard! I went through my entire collection, and I have many pinks and purples (not so many blues though), and so many were the wrong shades, hahah. But I think I nailed the colors in the end. The overall look I felt looks terrible on me, maybe it'll look better on someone else, but I see this more of a costumy look and not something you would wear for going out. So even though I wasn't happy about how it looked on me, I hope this helps at least one of you out and was maybe even entertaining!

How To Clean Your Make-Up Brushes And Tools (Spot, Deep And More)

Hello! I was bound to clean my brushes (I've been using a lot of colors lately, so I've run out of brushes that weren't clean), and thought I would film it and explain the whole process. I feel I don't do that much on my channel, I just take for granted that people know how to do shit (I for example have now promised my friend Julianne to include how I do my eyebrows in my videos. I know this shit cause I've been interested in make-up for years and have studied both hairdressing and make-up artistry. So please let me know if there is something I need to explain in my videos!

Anyway, in this video I show how to clean your make-up brushes and sponges, and list different products to use. One thing I didn't mention though was that some people use dish detergent for synthetic brushes, which is a thing to consider if your brushes are synthetic (mine aren't). Dish detergents are usually antibacterial, and therefore could be good for synthetic brushes. Do not use it for brushes with real hair, as it will probably make it stiff. Would you use dish detergent in your hair? Exactly. So that's how you should treat your brushes! Most people use baby shampoo and cleansing shampoos, but I just use what I have, which is usually something for dry, damaged or fine hair.

From Ink To Blush - Spawn




I thought I would come back to the series I do on my channel, which is Monster High and my comic book hero / villain one, this. I'm planning to do one more look in the series after this, then I think I'm going to move on to something else. I still have a few characters left that I want to do in the Monster High series though.
So this look is me channeling Spawn. He has a really cool look, so I mostly ended up just copying it. I wanted to incorporate his BADASS cape, but I felt that would ruin the rest, so oh well. Maybe I'll just get myself a cape like that, hahah.

Job Interview Look Using Too Faced

Hello! Today (well, yesterday now) I went to a job interview, and lately I've really been wanting to come back to youtube (reasons why I haven't I explain in the video), so I thought I would do a tutorial on it! This is what I wore. I like to be honest about my appearance and personality when it comes to work, and just tone it down if they feel it's too much. But I've been pretty lucky, in Norway this isn't as big of an issue as it might be in the US, for example.
For me this is very toned down, as I like to express myself with my make-up, which usually is very colorful. But I hope this still helps out some of you, and gives you any ideas for what to wear in a setting like this!

Too Faced Bonbon & PB&J Palette Review

Why, hello! Yes, I have been gone for way too long again. Sorry about that, I have a life you know! Lol, not really. Anyway, I wasn't really motivated to do anything, but then these palettes came out. After a while in utter despair at the amount of money I had to pay to actually get them in my hands, I kind of gave up for a while. But then my mother had an idea about asking a friend of hers in the states to buy them for me and ship them! So yeah. And now I'm super excited! So let's dive in!

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection
  • Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

From Ink To Blush - Rogue






Look at all the cool artwork I found featuring Rogue! I couldn't find so many good pictures of her from X-Men Evolution, but oh well. Goth Rogue ftw! So I took inspiration from that, and also the colors of the suit or whatever she's known for. I wanted this to be a more extreme look, as what she actually WEARS isn't that exciting. So even though you might not want to wear it, I hope you enjoy my take on it!
