30 Day Make Up Challenge #18: Extreme

For this rendition of the 30 Day Make Up Challenge, I decided to think outside of my comfort zone. I decided to pile on the make up and even though this may not be very extreme for some people, it is for me. I often only have 15 minutes, if that, when I do my…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #17 Matte

Are you ready for an all matte make up look? Because that is exactly what I have in store for you today. I know that this thing is called the 30 Day Make Up Challenge, but by now I have been making my way through the different tasks for a year and a half. But…

30 Day make up challenge #16 – colorful

Oh yes, the 30 day make up challenge is still on! This time we’re playing with color. Since I hit the halfway mark last January, I’ve noticed that this challenge is now taking a far more interesting term. Interesting, challenging and more innovative than the past 15 installments have been. So here’s to trying something…

My signature make up look

It’s been a while since I made a video and I thought that the next installment for the 30 Day Make Up Challenge would be a good one. Today we’re on Day 15: Signature make up look. Watch the video below to see how I go from a bare face to a full face of…

30 day make up challenge #14: Barbie

If there is one girl on the planet who has never been truly interested in Barbie, it would be me. As a kid, I only played with Barbie dolls if I had been over to a friend’s place who was an avid fan. I preferred to make up my own games, read books or play…

30 day make up challenge #13: Contouring

A make up technique I only just started applying is contouring. I don’t do it every day, and I definitely am not very good at it. I feel I just haven’t found the right brush yet to ensure a nicely blended contour. So far, I’ve succeeded in drawing a line, but I usually find them…

30 Day make up challenge #12: Glitter

On with the themed eyelooks of the 30 day make up challenge! Last time meant making smokey eyes, today it’s the complete opposite. This time I’m trying my hand at glitter. Only to sort through my entire stash to find out I own next to no glitter make up products. It’s just something I never…

30 day make up challenge #11: Smokey

Moving on the 30 day make up challenge ladder. It’s a slow and steady process, but trust me I haven’t forgotten about this challenge. I hadn’t set out to complete this challenge in 30 days anyway, and so I feel that as long as I complete it in the end we’ll be fine. The last…

30 day make up challenge #10: Black

Is anyone with me on a love/hate relationship with black eyeshadow? Don’t get me wrong, black eyeshadow is a staple color to have, but I hardly ever reach for it. To me, it’s a bit too dark, too much and usually makes my small eyes look even smaller. But for this 10th installment of my…

30 day make up challenge # 9: Grey

Wow how long has it been since I last showed you a 30 day make up challenge post? A little search on the blog tells me it’s been almost 2 months. Yikes! Time to put this challenge back into business. I’m showing you a very simple look (again). I just find these first 10 assignments…

30 day make up challenge # 8: Red (budget look)

When I think of red in a make up look, I unmistakably think of red lips. I do have red eyeshadow, but I think that I will have to use that in looks that are coming up in the future. So for this one, I’ve decided to keep things simple on the eyes and go…

30 day make up challenge: pink vintage party look

Last Sunday, my friend threw another vintage party on behalf of her historical events company Beleef het Verleden. This is the 4th such party she held and I attended all 4 (you can find links to my other 3 looks at the end of this post). The party had a vintage theme, meaning the dress…

30 day make up challenge #6: Blue

Time to play catch up! As you may have read in my previous installment of my 30 day make up challenge, I accidentally skipped the color blue. So today I present to you my blue make up look. I have been playing around a bit with my camera settings to ensure that the colors look…

30 day make up challenge #5: Peach

The 30 day make up challenge is still going strong, however I found out I made a mistake. After the green make up look, I should have done a blue one, but instead I chose the next one of the list and went with bronze. So yeah, I skipped one. My bad and I’ll make…

30 day make up challenge #4: bronze

So much for calling this challenge the 30 day make up challenge if I posted the last look in this series over a month ago right? Oh well… I thought I’d kick back into the swing of things with this warm bronze look. After soft greens I now introduce you to shimmering smokey browns. I…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #3: Green

We are still on the color themes of the 30 day make up challenge. The first 10 rounds are, and we are now at round no. 3 which calls for a green make up look. I went with this very autumnal looks, with a mossy green eye and a plum colored lip. It’s a mix…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #2: Purple

Day 2 of the 30 Day Make Up Challenge calls for a purple look. And when I saw this gorgeous by MUA, I just knew it was what I would be using to create this look. I made this look before I went to work and I was in a bit of a hurry and…

30 Day Make Up Challenge: #1 Nude

My friend Karin from Meerbeauty.nl embarked on the 30 day make up challenge when she first started her blog. She had so much fun doing it that she recommended I do it too. And I figured that wouldn’t be a bad idea. Much like her, I will not be posting 30 solid days of make…
