January make up look

For the last video of January I am bringing you an affordable make up look. I have changed up my make up routine ever so slightly this month and mostly I’ve been using affordable products. I also wanted to showcase some of the new Catrice products which I showed you last week. The only products…

Get Ready With Me Fall 2016

Today I’m sharing this super fall appropriate, yet very wearable make up look. It centers around the perfect fall palette: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette which I already reviewed here. In fact, the video below will show you exactly how I created one of the looks that I showed in that review. So…

The summer time vampy lip

Summer means lighter, brighter make up looks for me. I tend to shift the focus from my eyes to my lips as no one likes to cake on the heavy eyeliner when temperatures go up. Instead I bring out the bright lipstick and I figured it would make a fun summer time make up. The…

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…

Dakota Johnson Oscars 2015 inspired make up look

Eek, my very first celebrity make up look is a fact. I have never ever done one before for two very simple reasons. One, the make up celebrities wear to most events are boring. Two, I’m not into celebrities at all and thus I am always late to the bandwagon. This year I started browsing…

My New Year’s Eve make up look

The original plan was to post my signature make up look today. As part of the 30 day make up challenge that I am still working on after over a year. One blog goal for this year is to complete that challenge. I’m not sure yet how I’ll do that, but I thought I might…

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: Bold liner & lips

In my spare time, I occasionally like to experiment with make up. Last summer, as I was traveling around Europe I bought quite a few make up bits. It was the only thing small enough to fit in my bag and so I stocked up majorly. I wanted to use some of these products to…

Job interview appropriate make up look

Neutral make up looks are the best ones to wear to first days on the job and better yet: job interviews. Or just for every day: when you want to look a bit better but not too done up. Naked make up looks, or whatever you want to call it, are the way to go…

Back to school make up look (budgetproof)

Funny thing when a 30-year-old is aware of back to school huh? Well, this 30-year-old is a teacher and back to school is as apt for me as it is to many people reading this. And thus I thought I’d do my take on a back to school make up look. Perhaps not as neutral…

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…

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…

Quick & easy summer make up look

When temperatures start to rise, I never feel like doing a complete 15 – 20 minute make up routine. I forgo the smokey eyes and ditch the foundation. What I want is a make up look that is quick and easy to create but that stays on all day despite the sweaty weather. However, this…

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,…

4x Vice 2 eye look

On Monday I showed you the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I thought it would be nice to demonstrate the versatility of this eyeshadow palette by showing you a few looks that I’ve created using the shadows in this palette. Apart from the two pink shades (Coax & X-rated) and the darker purple (Voodoo) I…

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…
