Old Beauty Habits and Favourites

Today’s post is a bit different from what I usually post, but I just wanted to share.

Yesterday I’ve spent several hours going through my makeup and beauty products. And having more “OMG WHY DID I EVER BUY THIS?!” moments than I’d like to admit.

The thing is that I wanted to: a) organize things better, b) give away some stuff  to my aunt; she asked, c) throw away products that have gone bad/I don’t need etc.

What Would Be An Insiration for Your Makeup Collection?

This week as I was on my way to work I’ve started thinking about the makeup collection I would create if I could.

The strange thing is that I wasn’t really thinking about the colours or textures, I was thinking about the theme of the collection, design and the names for my products.

I guess my first collection would have a theme of Norse mythology and Vikings, a collection inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian nature and fascinating (at least for me) culture. I would like to use some of the ornaments and illustrations which are typical for the Scandinavia and already have a lot of names in my head.

Luckily, I know the topic quite well as it’s been a hobby of mine for years plus I’ve studied it at uni so I have lots of ideas running in my head. If only I could make it come true.

And what about you? If you could create your own makeup collection what would be your inspiration? Please share as I am curious to hear your ideas 🙂
