Friday Special: Iva Insane

Long time no see, but I've been busy with a lot of stuff like work and a trip to London together with my sis <3 As soon I get better from my illness (It makes me soooo tired) I will update you about our crazy trip :D

Today I'm gonna gonna let you guys know which make up products I use to be an UCG (Upper Class Goth).

I buy most of my make up at Make Up Store, because it's one of the few good labels we have here in Sweden. We have M.A.C. as well, but I've never been a big fan of their products (Don't kill me now, please!)

I like Make Up Stores microshadows because they have a lot of nice colours to choose from. It's like being in a candy store for me!
Their black microshadow named "pollution" is a matte eyeshadow that works fine if you like to have a smokey eye look.
I always use a transparent eye-primer (from MUS as well) on my eyelid before I apply the eyeshadow. It makes the color more intensive and let it stays on forever!
If I'm in the mood to have a more shiny and sparkling type of smokey eyes I put some eyeshadow named "Cinderella" from M.A.C. on top of my black eyeshadow "pollution". The eyeshadow named "Cinderella" comes in, silver, dark blue or purple glitter.
As eyeliner I use a really cheap one from H&M, but I think it works fine! It only cost like 5 euro, so your wallet will be happy as well :) I buy different types of mascaras from time to time, but I'm very particular to buy a volume mascara though.
To paint my eyebrows I always use a black eye brown-pencil first, and then fill them in with an eye-liner.

I think you've already heard about "Kryolan" from my sisters make up-tips, and I'm a big fan of their products as well!
They have a lot of different types of foundations to choose from, and their prices are from under 20 euro up to 50 euros.
As powder I use IsaDoras compact powder (nr 10) most of the time, but since we were in London I totally fell in love with Illamasquas Foundation and powder foundation! I got quite disappointed of the products at first, but when I got home from London and applied the products with my brushes it just turned out fantastic! I Give Illamasqua ten starts!

I don't use to wear blush often, but last week when I was in London and borrowed my sisters blush "Chic" from Make Up Store, I actually started to like it!
And since I bought one today, I think I'll make my sister proud ;P
With my round babyface and apple-cheeks I will look more like a doll. It doesn't matter what I do, I always turn out "cute" with any make up I wear.
How the hell will I manage to look like a evil bitch?! Haha, you never get pleased of what you get, right?
Here is a list of the products you should go and buy immediately!
*Eye shadows- Most from make Up store & some of them from M.A.C. cosmetics.
*Eyeliner- H&M
*Foundation- Illamasqua or Kryolan
*Powder- Illamasqua or IsaDora
*Eyebrown pencil -IsaDora
*Lipstick- Make Up Store or Viva la Diva (I love their black one!)
*Glitter- Make Up Store
*Eye lashes- Definitely from Kryolan! (and then you can modify them on your own)

Hope you all get a nice weekend!
Much love/ Iva Insane
Adora here!
..and once again we got a fantastic Friday Special by Iva Insane, the worlds most beautiful girl <3 Thank's sis!
I have to agree with all of the above.

And; YES! I'm very proud getting you hooked on Chic blush :)
You look so cute in it..I mean, you look so scary and evil ;)
 (I always wanna look like a doll and be cute all the time, but I tend to look harsh and evil and my sister hates being cute, and would love to look cool and evil. I'd kill for her pretty doll face!).
I use the same products, but I rarely make the upper lids smokey, I like my sharp eyeliner edge most of the time, but I do like to smoke it under my eyes.

A big problem I used to have was black shadow and eyeliner falling down on my cheeks during the day. I solved it by using Kryolan Cake Eye liner together with Cake Eye liner sealer (makes a waterproof eyeliner). Or as my sister, a transparent primer together with the eye shadow will make the darn thing stay put.
I always use the primer when I want to have a very white shadow or a sweet black.
I'm also a fan of Kryolan products and use Kryolan Ultra foundation TV-white 2 or the new Kryolan product I'm testing for my webshop, a stick. And so far I'm a total fan!
I also bought Illamasqua foundation and powder when in London, but have not been able to try it out yet.

The plan with my webshop is to be able to buy all the (tested and approved) products I wear, in just one place. So far I'm only a Kryolan reseller but I'll add more.
I also think Viva la Diva's black lipstick is super.
And their black glitter eye shadow.
And the only M.A.C. product I use is their Fluidline; Blacktrack. It's a waterproof eyeliner that I use on the inside of the lower lid (waterline?). It last me a day.
H&M eyeliner is what I use to do my dots. I push it very hard to make the point bigger so I can have the dots I like. As eyeliner I only use Kryolan's Cake liner and M.A.C. fluidline.


"..we're not all Adora BatBrat, and that's OK."

This line I found randomly!
It's from another blog: The Ultimate Goth Guide, and here's the part where I'm mentioned at the bottom.
I think that was a cute comment, it made me feel kind of special.
("-Yeah, Adora is a "special" child", my pediatrician said to my parents...).

A couple of months after giving birth to Synthia, our 1'st child. 2003.
From the guest post "Is Goth a lifestyle?" 10 april 2011
"I consider myself one of those 24/7 Gothy types - if I don't bother to Goth-up in the a.m. (although I have casual days like everybody else) I feel unconfident and just, well, not me. However, trying to adjust every area of your life to make it 'more Goth' borders on silly mallgoth territory, and a T-shirt-and-jeans-day won't actually kill you. As Amy says, it depends on what Goth does for you as to how much you want to involve it in your everyday life. In other words, we're not all Adora BatBrat, and that's OK."

And dear God, I really hope noone else is just like me! Poor goths..
Well, actually there is 8 Adora's, and we all lives inside the same body ;)
