This week I worked at MAC Cosmetics counter at Magasin Kongens Nytorv. Just like a little kid at the candy store, I went completely super exited working with all the MAC products – mega selection of eyeshadow colours, textures, foundations, highlighters and beauty tools ect. One of my favorite item is the MAC Pigments; highly concentrated loose colour powder which creates an intense effect. Use it alone or mix & match a couple of colours really gives me the possibility to use my creativity in making a great eye makeup. The photo below is an application I did this week on one of MAC customer. You should drop by at the counter and try out all these amazing products!
Recently I google for “miss world. makeup” just to find out what other makeup artists world wide are doing in preparing this year´s contestants of Miss World Beauty Pageant. To my surprise, a couple of familiar headlines pop-up with my face next to the headlines. Since I´ve never googled my own name, it´s quite funny to not knowing that the updates I did these last 2 years about doing the makeup for the 2012 and 2013 winners of Miss World Denmark official photos, are out there on the “world wide web”. Iris Thompsen was crowned as Miss World Denmark 2012 and last year´s winner was Malene Riis Sorensen. Few weeks ago I had the chance to meet a few of this year´s finalists at the photography session in Copenhagen. No doubt that the judges will find themselves having to make a tough decision choosing the “one”. These girls are all the “one”. During the filming of the short presentation, I was impressed by not only their self-confidence in front of the camera, but their high academic achievements, voluntary work they have done and their ambitious future plans. I´m happy to be given the chance once again to prepare one of the finalist - Sophie Maix. Take a look at her video presentation and be prepared to fall in love with this beautiful charm.

Besides a good cup of coffee, uplifting tunes, a quick push-ups and balanced breakfast, these are 2 products in my morning rituals that boost my mood, to keep me focused, give me energy or even to lift my spirits throughout the day: Dior Homme Sport Shower Gel & Dior Homme EDT
Every Weekend Is A Celebration – It´s a high summer season now. Business is rather slow as most of the Danes are on “out-of-office” email auto reply. The Danes is raking highest on the Most Travel Nation in the world. It´s important to take a time off and unwind. But as for myself, I work all year round. So what I do to create the life/work balance? I put an extra effort to make my weekends – possibly every weekend is a celebration!
Here´s from last weekend at the summer house:
