I was recently stationed at MAGASIN du Nord in Lyngby to launch the new men’s fragrance by Gucci.

Gucci Guilty Absolute – created for a man who defines his own masculinity

I have worked with hundreds of fragrances from so many brands out there, by far Guilty Absolute is the most masculine fragrance with a seductive “manly” scent I’ve ever worked with. Its powerful signature is driven by two singular scent innovations inspired by the majesty of woods and leather. It’s sexy and can make men irresistible to the opposite sex. The purity of dry woody Vetiver Heart, from the heart of distilled Vetiver roots creates a perfume bridge to the woody and leathery signatures of Gucci Guilty Absolute.

I would strongly recommend it as a babe magnet!

My Recent Work | Iris Thomsen |


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!


The Danish Wedding

Recently I did a bridal makeup all the way up in the north of Denmark. Since this is a “whole package” of bridal makeup service, I stayed all throughout the wedding and was also invited to attend the wedding dinner. Besides the funny songs and personal speeches, what I enjoy the most when attending a Danish wedding is the kissing tradition. It began during the early 1970s and it being in practice until today. During the dinner party, whenever the groom leaves the room – to the gents or taking photo – all the men in the room rush over and queue up to kiss the bride and whenever the bride leaves the room, all the women rush over to kiss the groom. Whenever the guests banging fork or knife on the plate, the wedding couple have to climb onto their chairs and kiss! When the guests stamp their feet, the pair have to kiss under the table. There are many other traditions carried during the ceremony such as throwing the rice, cutting the socks ect. If you ever getting an invitation to a Danish wedding, don´t miss it!

Here are the photos from the wedding:

My recent work of makeup application for Miss World Denmark 2014 finalist – Sophie Maix



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.

Through My Lens: The Danish Parliament, Christiansborg Palace

I walk past the Danish Parliament building almost everyday on my way to work. I live just about 250 meter from this historical building and I must say that I´m a lucky person to have a home address in this area because I appreciate the architecture of this magnificent building – the centre of Danish democracy.

The History of Christiansborg

Christiansborg Palace as it stands today is only the most recent of a succession of five buildings that have occupied the islet of Slotsholmen in Copenhagen for more than 800 years. For centuries, one building has been succeeded by the next as a consequence of wars, modernisations and fires.

The Danish Parliament

The Danish Parliament is located in Christiansborg Palace on the Castle Islet, “Slotsholmen”, a small island in Copenhagen harbour in the heart of the city. Christiansborg Palace is the centre of Danish democracy, and Members of Parliament use most of the rooms in the building as offices and meeting rooms.
