A little on the side of my usual content, but hey…! Those of you who follow me on instagram have probably seen this look already, felt like posting more pics of it nevertheless. I love experimenting with makeup, especially when incorporating ancient norse symbols and runes. It’s my thing. The icelandic magical staves, Galdrastafur, were my main source of inspiration for this specific look. Usually, these kind of ideas spring to mind when I am doing something extremely boring, or even when I am dreaming. To me, Putting on makeup is a hobby, a ritualistic act, and meditation -all at once-. On a higher level, it is my attempt at making everyday art that ties the ancient heritage with the Urban way of life.

  1. You inspire me a lot!
    The way you introduce magic and art in everyday life, it really makes it worth living, doesnt’ it?
    I have been wanting to do something in the same spirit inspired by the Egyptian gods.
    But if you want I will post a link to your Instagram to indicate were the original idea came from.
    Keep on doing these make-ups, I love them so much!
