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…

FOTD: Smudgy blues (drugstore)

Occasionally I whip out my make up at 6 AM, right before I’m heading for work and I create a make up look I really really like. One such looks, is the one I am sharing with you today. I recreated it a few days later when I had more time and, not unimportantly, when…

FOTD: Time to fall in love

Fall has officially started so it’s time to roll out some seasonal posts. The first one is this fall inspired look. Golds and purples are combined with soft neutrals to create a wearable yet slightly more dramatic look. I like these type of looks for fall. I always feel that more dramatic eye looks go…

Colorful make up look for summer

Apart from colorful nails, I like wearing colorful make up looks from time to time. Especially summer time calls for brighter, bolder colors on the eyes. I love going for greens, blues and purples. My favorite palette to use for adding some pop of color is one of my Inglot palettes and so I used…

Urban Decay Naked Basics make up look (using all shadows)

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I swear by Urban Decay eyeshadows. I have many of their palettes and I especially love their Naked palettes. And I love matte eyeshadow. So when Urban Decay released the Naked Basics palette I knew it would find its way to my…

Spring make up look

Coral is one of my favorite colors for spring so I decided to create a full pinky coral make up look from eyes to cheeks to lips. At the same time I’m trying a new foundation, of which the review will be up later this week. This make up look is very simple to make,…

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…

NARS inspired make up look

The reason for my reading make up books is to get inspiration for techniques that I might use myself. For some reason, pictures of celebrities never work for me because a) I don’t find it all that interesting and b) I don’t find make up looks used at red carpet events show me anything I…

Video: Get Ready With Me #1

Exciting times, video times! I am not too fond or good at making videos which is why I don’t do them very often. But when I saw these ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos I thought: I can do that too. So the other day I sat down and gave it a shot. Hoping I was…

FOTD: My go to look

Just something quick and easy today. Last weekend I went to a friendĀ“s birthday party and I decided to make a make up look. I ended up making a more elaborate version of what I would call my go to look. I love wearing browns on my eyes as I feel they make my eyes…

FOTD: cool bronze

As promised a few days ago, when I posted an outfit of the day, that I would post a separate on a make up look. The outfit I posted went with a makeupless face. I just didn’t feel inspired that day to do any make up and usually on days off I will opt out…

OOTD: Speckled skirt & biker boots

I sometimes throw outfits together that I am quite pleased about, and when I do, I tend to want to show you guys. The other day I wore something that I think you might like too and so I figured I’d turn it into a post. The main feature is a high waisted dark blue…

LOTD: A Different Shade of Blue

Ok. First of all, this look is not coherent. I just threw together an outfit and then randomly selected a palette to do an eyelook with, so the make up & the clothes don’t match. I don’t care though, as I don’t think make up & outfit should always match. In fact, I think that’s…

FOTD: Sugar Plum Fairy

Remember that delicious cheesecake I made over Christmas? Well the girl who originally made that cake isn’t only a great cook, but she’s even better at make up. For Christmas she made a make up look called Sugar Plum Fairy and I thought it so pretty that I wanted to remake it.Today, I suddenly had…

FOTD: London Rain

I wanted to make a new outfit post, but unfortunately lighting was horrible so I’m only showing you my make up today. I decided to finally use my Catrice London palette from the City collection, which I showed you in this shopping vlog a little over a month ago. I was suddenly inspired to use…

OOTD: Something clean and simple

This is my first outfit of the day. I’ve been toying with the idea for some time now, but I never had or took the time to do one. It’s pretty tough for me to do as the amount of light when I get ready in the morning or when I get home at night…
