Melodifestivalen 2013 (Day 2)

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I kept all the boys' Makeup Simple today, using brown tones and gel liner, since they only were going to have a rehearsal on stage and some meetings with media.

The staff unpacked all of their things in the dressing-room since we were going to spend most of the time there from now on. Me and JENZiiH also got interviewed by a reporter from SVT about our job as YOHIO's Stylists. (Click here to see the article)

Today we did all of the Styling at Scandic Karlskrona, where all of the performing artists were staying. Most of our staff (and the band) were staying at Ninteone's Tour Bus. It's so incredibly nice having a private bus to drive you around everywhere, haha~

First rehearsal on stage! Afterwards we also revealed the stage outfits for the media.

When the rehearsal was over, me and JENZiiH were requested to do a "YOHIO"-makeover on a girl from Universal Music Sweden. I decided do the look I did for YOHIO for the album cover of REACH the SKY, which is much more girly and kinda Gyaru. I figured that It would suit her better.

Later that night there was a party at the local museum. Free drinks and delicious food! I spontaneously decided that I wanted to party hard in the bar back at the hotel since my boss's boss was kind enough to buy me some drinks 

I can't recall anything else happening that day since there's so much going on all the time, but everything went smooth except for me having a few too many drinks, hehe~

Here's the video/tutorial of the YOHIO-transformation by Universal Music Sweden. I look so different since I didn't wear a wig or Makeup that day. I feel like I'm not living up to being a Makeup Artist when I'm not all dolled up  Well, I hope you don't mind! Please, enjoy the video anyway!

Melodifestivalen 2013 (Day 1)

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Before going to Melodifestivalen in Karlskrona we went to Base 23 in Stockholm since YOHIO and his band had to rehearse the choreography for the performance. Everything went nice and smooth, and we went to Karlskrona on Tuesday, arriving at Telenor Arena on Wednesday morning. First of all we had to get our "pass cards" which were super important since they gave us access to the whole area. We went on a quick tour around the Arena, and further practice and preparations started right after that.

We all got our schedules and talked about what the week was going to look like.

Later that day we went for dinner with the whole crew. We didn't do much more after that. Poor JENZiiH had to stay upp all night to sew clip-on extensions, and while the rest of the crew wanted to party I went to bed early instead.

Very pretty and subtle pattern, but I personally think that the black pattern is taking over a bit too much. Although, this kind of design gives your eyes a very dolly look.


The green color is very pretty, but it doesn't show much at all since the black pattern is taking over. They're very opaque and don't let your natural iris shine through, which is great if you want to cover your natural eye color completely.


The enlarging effect is amazing. These lenses are really big, which obviously means that they make my eyes look huge. The design of these lenses also contribute to the enlarging effect.


They're very comfortable, but my eyes get a bit tired and dry after a few hours. This is completely normal though since the diameter is so big.


If you want big, and dolly eyes with just a hint of color, these are the perfect lenses for you.

Nilina Crystal Line Fake Eyelash - 27  - To be honest, I've never been found of "criss-cross" lashes, but I actually really like these! They look very natural and girly. Perfect for everyday eye makeup!

These lenses were sponsored by UNIQSO.

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Dreamv's Spring Items look very promising so far, especially a lot from 'Princess Style'. I even found a lot of nice items from 'Glamorous Style'! I have a feeling that there'll be a complete Spring Collection very soon. Can't wait to see it! 

These shoes are so cute, but what really caught my eye were the cute and colorful coordinates. I love Spring & Autumn Fashion! The best thing about Spring Fashion are the pastel colors
