Hello,

I am new to this website. I am a 25 year old girl from Norway trying to improve my makeup skills a bit and I hope this is the right place to both answer and ask some questions. :)

I already have gotten a good impression of some of the members.

Thanks a lot @@Queennie ! I haven´t too much information about the Norwegian makeup market right now due to the fact that I am living in Asia, but I will try to update the forum on some good stuff if I by accident can find something! ;)

No worries! A great question! :) It's mostly forgotten. :( I wish I still spoke Swedish and could understand it. The same with German. I used to speak German and understand some as well but no longer. After moving to the US and speaking English 24/7, I forgot about the other languages. I still remember my mother language (Finnish) but sometimes forget some words also.

Hehe, I feel (and understand) you! I have been living abroad for 5 years now (studying abroad) and haven´t really spoken Norwegian for a long time.

My mum is getting more and more concerned that I will finally loose it, but I guess it all comes back if I move back to this cold place one day. :)

My mom says I speak Finnish with English grammar. I guess the way I form the sentences are more like English not Finnish. :D

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
