Mermaid Vibes | MOTD

IMG_5878.JPG

This look is totally something different from what I normally wear for makeup, but I love it! Last week I bought some new colors at KIKO, you can read about that here. Immediately I wanted to play with all the colors, they were perfect for a mermaid inspired look!

That’s the finished look! I’m really happy how it turned out. Actually, I wanted to film this look, but if your head is constantly out the view, it’s not going to work of course. Need to stick with blogging I guess. Maybe in the future, we’ll see.

Also, to be updated on my makeup looks, follow my other Instagram! I recently opened a new makeup related account. I will post photos from my looks there, that you can later expect on my blog!

Little close up video of my mermaid look. Tomorrow on the blog!

Glowy bronzy look | MOTD

IMG_5783.JPG

When I think of a summer makeup look, I think about lot’s of color or a classy glowy bronze look. As I love natural colors more (and I also went for dinner with this look), I went for the glowy bronze look. Enjoy!

That’s the finished makeup look! If you want it more glowy and bronzed, you can, of course, use more highlighter and bronzer. I was already quite glowy because of the warmth, but I couldn’t resist using more highlighter. Oh well…

Hope you liked it and have a nice day!

Purple Smokey Eyes | MOTD

IMG_5738 (2).JPG

It’s been such a long time since I posted an MOTD! I haven’t been wearing makeup that much anymore, but a few days ago I really got the urge to play around with eyeshadows. The look ended up to be a purple smokey eye, all colors from the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. I love that palette way too much, it’s the one that I use most for MOTD’s on the blog! I will tell you have I’ve achieved this purple look.

And that’s the finished look! Not really a summer MOTD, but the purple makes the smokey eye less dark. Perfect for a fancy dinner or party!

Hope you liked it! It made me really happy to play with all my makeup again so there will be coming more makeup related posts again. I like OOTD’s, travel diaries and food, but makeup will always be the main subject on my blog. I just love it too much!

Lots of love xxxx

Unicorn makeup & outfit

At the moment we’re having carnaval here, a festivity where you dress up and party. I decided last minute that I would go, so I didn’t have the time to buy anything. Instead I created my own unicorn horn and outfit, and I would love to share it with you! 🙂

This was what I was wearing. I made the Unicorn horn from paper, just as the ears and placed this between a flower headband I had from Primark. For clothes I was wearing this silver glitter shirt from H&M and a pink skirt I found in my sisters closet. The poofy pink skirt was from carnaval a few years ago.

For makeup I also went a bit more festive (lots of highlighter )

FACE: L’Oréal True Match Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer, Maybelline Matte Me powder, Makeup Revolution Contour Palette, I heart Makeup Unicorn Highlighter, Freedom Blush Palette

EYES: Catrice eyeshadow Base, Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette (pink color), eyeliner & mascara and glitters from the primark glitter palette

LIPS: NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst

That’s it, I really loved it.

Thanks for visiting, have a nice day!

I HEART MAKEUP Naked Chocolate Palette | Review

iheartmaku

This palette is so adorable! Just look at the packaging, so cute how they made this chocolate bar. I’m owning this cute palette for a while now, and I figured it was time to review it on my blog.

IMG_5100.JPG

The I HEART MAKEUP Naked Chocolate Palette really reminds me of the Too Faced Chocolate Palettes. I believe I HEART MAKEUP is known for the Too Faced dupes. They also have these heart blushes and highlighters that really look like the Too Faced ones.

The colors in this palette are so lovel. All very natural, but also great to make a more smokey look. I also love how they put in matte but also shimmery colors.

IMG_5092.JPG

Smoothly – Divine – Mocha Lover – Dipped – Choc-fest

The first row of eyeshadow are very natural and shimmery, expect the first and last one.

IMG_5094.JPG

Adorable – Buttons – Frosted Choc – Delight – Sweet Shop – Sugar

These colors are darker, and I feel like they also are more pigmented. Is that possible? Would be very strange actually. I’m really loving the color Frosted Choc. It’s so beautiful as a popping eyelid color. Most of the colors in this row are shimmery

IMG_5096.JPG

Double dip – ‘Tob-le-rone’ – Wonka – Milky – Way

The last row, most of the colors in this row are matte. It stands out that the matte colors are less pigmented than the shimmery colors. They’re still great, just a little less pigmented.

The palette is really lovely. The shimmery colors are beautiful and very pigmented and in combination with the matte colors you can make amazing eyeshadow looks. The packaging is adorable, and another advantage is that the palette is affordable. It’s only €10. It’s great!

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day! xxx

Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb | Review

20170216_092144.jpg

My favorite perfume is definitely Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf. It is a few years ago when I discovered this wonderfull perfume. I recieved a sample of it with another perfume, and I fell in love immediately. It smells so good!

20170216_09205120170216_09210820170216_092214

I was 15 or 16 when I smelled the perfume for the first time. I remembered it was so expensive, around €90. At the time I couldn’t afford it, so I saved some money and gift cards until I finally had the money. I think I was 17 when I purchased the perfume, almost 2 years ago.

Instead of only the perfume (50 mL), I choose the gift box. It was the same price, and I got a bodylotion and shower gel with it.( That I still haven’t used oops, they just smell too good ) I love the design of the box, the color is perfect and it’s so simple. Just as the bottle, it’s so simple but so beautiful and luxurious.

20170216_092238

Flowerbomb is an eau de parfum, so it’s stronger and stays on all day. I barely have to put it on later on the day. Most of the time, I only wear it for special occasions. That’s because it’s quite expensive and for me it’s a special parfum.

The perfume smells, as the name says, like flowers. It has a sweet smell, but not to much. I find it very femine, but also girly. (is that a thing?) Sephora describes it as a floral explosian, I think that’s the right thing to say.

Notes:
Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
Style:
Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.

I really love this perfume, it’s been my favorite for a few years now and I still haven’t smelled a parfum that could beat this one.

Thank you so much for visiting, have a lovely day!

COCONUT OIL IS THE ANSWER

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor coconut oil quotes funny

I’ve seen this photo so many times on facebook now, that I just had to share my experience with coconut oil. Indeed, it’s amazing and is a solution for so many things! However, coconut oil is not my whole life or someting like that, I mean some people use it for everything. There are a lot of health benefits and other benefits of coconut oil  to be found all over the internet, but I never really tried this. (maybe I should?) In this post I will tell you my tips and experience with coconut oil.

HAIR MASK

Coconut oil is so rich and oily, it’s perfect as a hair mask. It makes your hair really soft and shiney. I always brush my hair out, scoop some coconut oil out of my jar and warm it up in my hands above my head (so that the dripping oil falls on my head instead of on the floor), I devide it in my hair and leave it in for 30 minutes minimal. The longer the better. When washing it out, I only use shampoo. I have to wash it more than once before all the oil is out of my hair. (I mentioned this before in my post about my hair care routine.:) )

20170215_115533

MAKEUP REMOVER

It also can be used as a makeup remover for your whole face, or only the eyes. I like it remove my eyemakeup with coconut oil. The grease works very good for removing mascara and eyeliner.

MOISTURIZER

Coconut oil is perfect to moisturize your dry legs, knees, elbows, lips and even cuticles. It makes your skin so soft, and it smells lightly like coconut but it’s mostly odorless.

COOKING

We used to use coconut oil to bake our meat and vegetables. It works really well! The only disadvantage is that coconut oil is hard when it’s cold, so you always have to scoop it out. I personally find it easier when cooking oil is liquid, so I prefer olive oil more to cook with.

These are my tips and what I use coconut oil for. There are a lot more things where you can use it for though, for example: as a shaving cream, oil pulling, to eat (it seems to be very good for you health). Sadly I can’t tell you if it really works, maybe I should try it out…

What are you experiences with coconut oil?

NYX Lingerie | Review

IMG_5082.JPG

A while ago, when I was in London I purchased some products from NYX. I already wrote a review about the brow pomade and liquid suede so now it’s time for the NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick! I had seen so much pictures already of all the beautiful colors, so I was glad that I could finally check them out myself.

IMG_5085.JPG

The applicator is different from the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream lipsticks. This one is a bit longer and thinner, what makes it easier to apply the lipstick. The color stays for a long time on the lips, and it doesn’t feel drying at all!

img_5090

I went for the color Embellishment. It’s a greyish/purple color, very cool toned also. This one grabbed my attention immediately. I love how it is a nude color, as all the colors in the NYX Lingerie line, but it’s also very different from the others because of the purple in it.

Once again, NYX doens’t dissapoint me. I love their products and I’m looking forward trying out more beautiful lippies!

Have a lovely day! I’m having snow here in the Netherlands, it always comes so random and unexpected haha. My cute little bunny loves it though!

MAKEUP REVOLUTION ultra contour palette | Review

IMG_4951.JPG

In a lot of my MOTD posts, I tell I use the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette for contour. (for example here, here and here) I thought it was time to properly write about the palette, as I use it almost everytime I put on makeup.

IMG_4957.JPG

This is what the colors look like, please don’t mind the quit dirty mirror and just everything. I have it for over a year now, and I also used it a lot. The palette contains 8 colors to contour and highlight. The first row are highlight colors. The first two are matte, pink toned and yellow. (reminds me of the banana powder). Honestly I barely use them, because I always use another finishing powder. Sometimes I use the yellow one under my eyes though, to make me look more awake. The two highlighters next to it are beautiful! I love the third one in the row the most for a natural glowy highlighter. It gives a lovely glow, but not like bam NikkiTutorials glow (love that though, but personally not for everyday). The other one is soooo pretty, that’s the one I use when I want a cool toned more shiney highlighter.

The second row are the contour colors. Actually I only use the second one, because I had the feeling that looks the best on my skin. Cool toned again. But after I made some swatches, I saw that the first and third are also quit fitting!

IMG_4959.JPG

Here you see the swatchs of the first row, the ‘highlight’colors. The pigmentation is great. Also the difference between the two highlighter is showable here.

IMG_4962.JPG

The contour colors! These also are very pigmented. The last color is a shimmery bronzy color. I think it would be lovely for a summer bronzed look!

wp-image-728771929jpg.jpg

On an everyday basis, I always try to keep my contour and highlight as natural as possible. Most of the times I use the third highligther. On the picture above you can see the contour and highlighter together. For me this was quit much contour.

I really love the palette. The colors are great for me, the pigmentation is very good and it’s also affordable. It’s only 10 euro! I recommend this palette to anyone who is looking for a affordable powder contour palette.

Thank you very much for visiting. Have a lovely day!
