Do you use a brow-knife?

So you’ve probably seen I write a lot abound Depend? It is a brand I do some work for, but it is first of all a brand I really love. Known to most for their nailpolishes and lashes, but did you know they also carry a wide range of products for brows? From tweezers, to brow-scissors, different pencils and a pomada (in 6 shades) and my ”can’t live without” brow-knife.

I use this both personally and in my professional kit. It’s easy to use for easy clean up on brows, uni-brow, upper lip or even to quickly trim a hair-line or beard-line. On toes if needed i.e. on a photoshoot with bare feet.

The brow-knife is sold in packs of three for instance at LYKO [adlink] for just 69SEK

User-friendly, Quick and effective!

Two days of work with my favorite team

If you followed me on my old blog (it’s deleted now as I wanted a fully fresh start here) you might have seen I work together with DEPEND and style hair on their photoshoots. I did my first job for them in November 2017, and since then, I am so honored to be a part of this incredible team. The team in its whole, with PR-manager Beatrice Gull in the lead of everything, is one of the best teams I have ever worked with and for. I LOVE working with them, and especially since I love their products so much!

The lashes from DEPEND are my favorite lashes. It’s the only brand of lashes I use actually. They come in so many variations, they are easy to apply and the little tube of glue that is included in each pack of lashes can be used several times as the little top can be put back on.

The ”strip” you glue the lashes on with, is soft and easy to work with. They stay in place and they can be used up to ten times. That’s crazy good value as well, considering the price of around 69SEK per set of lashes.

Below are a couple of behind the scenes photos from our two-day session we just did, and I look forward to seeing the end result later on. All makeup is by Linda Fernström, and hair by me.

Which is your favorite?

High hair with Idun minerals

IDUN minerals might be known to most for their good for your skin mineral-makeup, and perhaps you’ve seen that they also launched their own skincare-line a year or two ago?

Their skincare has also been updated with more products but I will write more about them in a separate post.

Today I want to focus on the next big launch from IDUN minerals, HAIRCARE! Yup, you read me right!

There’s this saying that ”lots wants more”, and many brands ride the wave of popularity if they’re great in one area. It’s not always a success going into two areas, and even more difficult to master three. But IDUN, they’ve DONE IT!

So for a couple of weeks I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner from the volume&care line, and this is how the products are described on their web-page.

Volume & Care Shampoo

A volume shampoo that contains vitamins and minerals which add richness, shine and new vitality while strengthening the hair structure.

A volume conditioner that gives the hair volume and makes it soft, smooth and shiny. The conditioner is enriched with vitamins and minerals that protect and strengthen and provide vitality to the hair. Volume & Care Conditioner is mildly perfumed with hypoallergenic perfume, with a scent of sea and summer breeze.

How good or bad a schampoo and conditioner works for your hair is, of course, very individual depending on what kind of hair one has and what shape it’s in. But for MY hair (lots of it but they’re thin and tangle and break easy) IDUN minerals volume & care shampoo and conditioner is among the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve used on my hair. It keeps my hair in place and gives it body without weighing it down.

So will I buy it again? Yes

Do I recommend it? Yes

Apart from the volume&care range there are also other haircare-products so head on over to IDUN if you want to learn more.


Work work

Längesedan jag var så peppad på en måndag med jobb som jag var igår! Som ni vet jobbar jag en hel del med Depend som jag älskar (produkter och team, bästa kombon) och senast i fredags hade vi en kul dag med plåtning tillsammans med Ellinor Bjurström. (Läs om det här)

I dagarna två har det återigen varit jobb med Depend på schemat, i hela två dagar inklusive övernattning! Yup, för vi har nämligen varit på STEAM hotel i Västerås och plåtat med Alexandra Nilsson aka Kissie

Galet kul måndag eftermiddag med 3 looker och sedan middag på 18e våningen. 6 rätter följt av matkoma så jag och min rumskompis aka bästa Linda Fernström gick till rummet och la oss vid 22 redan, medan de andra gick upp till spa’t.

Imorse möttes vi till frukost följt av en sista look. De helt färdiga resultaten kommer längre fram, men som vanligt bjuder jag på en liten sneak peek 😜

It’s been a while since I was so stoked about work on a Monday as I was yesterday. As you might know by now, I work a whole lot with Depend that I love (products and team, best combination) and we did a shoot this past Friday with former Top Model attendee Ellinor Bjurström. (Read about that here)

Yesterday and today it was time for another shoot with Depend, two whole days including a sleepover at STEAM hotel in Västerås shooting with Alexandra Nilsson a.k.a Kissie

Crazy fun Monday afternoon with 3 looks followed by late dinner on the 18th floor. 6 courses followed by food-coma so me and my roomie a.k.a Linda Fernström went back to our room to hit the sack at 10pm while the rest of the team went up to the spa.

This morning we met up for breakfast followed by a last look. The finished results from the shoot will be ready later on, but as usual I will share a little sneak peek 😜

Tack bästa teamet och Alexandra för två roliga dagar tillsammans ❤️

Thank you to the best team and Alexandra for two fun days together ❤️

Jobb med Depend

Igår var så himla kul 😍

I ett (fortfarande lite hemligt till vad) samarbete mellan Depend och före detta Top Model deltagaren Ellinor Bjurström gjorde vi igår en jättefin plåtning i studio.

Hela bästa Dependteamet var på plats och som vanligt gjorde Linda Fernström makeup och jag hår. Så himla skönt att ibland bara ha ett fokusområde och jag och Linda jobbar så himla bra ihop 💕 kanske för att vi båda är lite små-galna? 🤪 (den här emojin är min nya favorit)

Hursomhelst, så kan jag inte avslöja än vad plåtningen var för eller när det kommer synas men jag kan däremot bjuda på en behind the scenes bild😊

Nu tar jag helg efter en lång vecka och ladda batterierna till kommande vecka full med roliga uppdrag 😘

Whoop whoop, new in or coming up!

Eftersom jag är lite på stående fot och på språng så blir detta inlägg främst bilder, från startskottet på höstens upplaga av pressveckan.

Jag spenderade några mysiga timmar hos PRESSKONTAKTERNA i förmiddags för att klämma och känna på nyheter.

Since I’m in a bit of a rush and kind of on my way, this post will be mostly pictures. I spent a couple of hours at PRESSKONTAKTERNA looking at all the new products.


Och här är alla härligheter jag fick med mig hem för att prova 😍 😊

And all the goodies I got to take home to try out!

Miss Robot – you are in charge – CTRL+Alt+Delete!

”Programmera om din inre robot i höst till en ny egen look. Mörka färger med glitter ger ett spännande djup och blir extra effektfulla i geometriska mönster med omålade ytor i ”negative space”.

”Re-programme your inner robot this fall to create your own, new look. Dark colors with glitter give an exciting depth and become even more effectful in geometrical patterns with ”negative space”.

Miss robot är en av lookerna från den första plåtningen jag jobbade på tillsammans med Depend i november förra året. Sedan dess har vi hunnit göra fler plåtningar och jag är så glad att de hittade mig! Det är alltid så inspirerande, roligt och kreativt! Den coola makeupen står Linda Fernström för. Fotograf är Peter Edqvist och naglarna är fixade av grymma nagelstylist Petra Nilsson, idé och stylist Beatrice Gull. Modell Myrtille Revemont.

I butik nu för 39kronor styck. Men skynda! Kollektionen är limiterad.

I WANT BODY – ELEVEN Australia

ELEVEN Australia är ett relativt ungt märke som grundades 2011 med Miracle hair treatment. Idag har märket 27 produkter i sin portfölj och samtliga produkter är dessutom icke djurtestade och veganska.

Bakom märket står den fyrfaldige ”årets frisör” (i Australien) Joey Scandizzo och den australiensiske ”årets fotograf” Andrew O´Toole.

Under sina yrkesår både i salong och på plåtningar, modevisningar med mera, så kände Joey behovet av lättanvända och lättförståeliga produkter som kunde användas både av professionellt arbetande i branschen men som också skulle tilltala konsumenten. Med mottot; ”Haircare doesn´t need to be complicated, it just needs to work” (Joey), så föddes ELEVEN Australia.

För effektiva produkter krävs effektiva ingredienser, och några av ingredienserna som används i ELEVEN Australia är

  • Avokadoolja
  • Organiskt odlad gurka
  • Hydroliserat veteprotein
  • Hydroliserat sojaprotein
  • Papayaextrakt
  • Australiensisk macadamianötolja
  • Silkesaminosyror
  • Kokosnötsolja
  • Sheasmör
  • Arganolja

ELEVEN Australia is the fresh approach to hair care, and was co-created by creative directors and icons in the industry – four-time Australian hairdresser of the year Joey Scandizzo, and Australian photographer of the year, Andrew O´Toole.

Joey´s motto is; ”hair care doesn´t need to be complicated, it just needs to work”.

Effective products come from effective ingredients. That´s why ELEVEN Australia´s range contains;

  • Avocado oil
  • Organic cucumber
  • Hydrolysed som protein
  • Hydrolysed wheat protein
  • Papaya extract
  • Australian macadamia nut oil
  • Silk amino acids
  • Coconut oil
  • Shea butter
  • Argan oil

Products are PETA approved, packaging recyclable and formula paraben free. What´s not to love?

Jag har redan hittat två favoriter från märket och de är i serien för volym.

I WANT BODY VOLUME FOAM är ett lättviktigt skum för att ge håret fyllighet, kontroll och textur. Beroende på hårets längd, så tar man 2-4 pump och fördelar ut jämnt i fuktigt hår. Föna sedan håret torrt. Produkten är både vegansk och glutenfri, och en flaska på 200ml kostar 200kr. Jag älskar den här då den får mitt annars så tunna och flygigt hår att kännas fylligt utan att det blir fett eller tungt.

This is a light-weight mousse that adds volume, texture and control to hair. Depending on lenght of hair, apply 2-4 pumps of product to damp hair. Blow dry. The product is both vegan and gluten free and a bottle of 200ml is 200SEK. I love this mousse, as it makes my otherwise thin and unruly hair feel fuller but without weighing it down or making it feel greasy.

I WANT BODY VOLUME POWDER är en multifunktionell produkt som kan användas för att ge volym både i rötterna och längderna, men också för att ge lite strävhet och textur. Det magiska med detta volympulver är att det istället för att komma i en burk med hål i ”saltkars”-format, så är det en pumpflaska som ”puffar” ut ett moln av pulver. På så sätt blir det jämnt fördelat, det öser inte ur för mycket och det är väldigt lätthanterligt. Man pumpar ut ett moln i torrt hår där man önskar volym och masserar sedan in pulvret med fingertopparna. Jag älskar den här typen av produkt i såväl utsläppt hår som i uppsättningar. Kommer helt klart bli en favorit till bruduppsättning! Pulvret är såklart också veganskt och glutenfritt. En pumpflaska (9g) kostar 219kr.

A multi-functional product that can be used to achieve volume bott at roots and lenght of hair, and also to give hair some texture. The magical thing about this product is that instead of the classical ”salt shaker” dispenser, it comes in a pump-spray that blows powder out in a cloud. This making it easier to spread evenly. It gives each application just the right amount of product. Apply it to dry hair where you wish to give your hair some added volume and extra oumph, and carefully massage into hair. This product is one of my favorites both in loose hair as in a fancy up-do. It gives you that added coarseness to the hair that really helps keep a hair-do in place. Oh, and of course it´s both vegan and gluten free. A bottle of 9grams is 219 SEK.
