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!

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!

MOTD: Going Green/Grey

IMG_4739.JPG

Remember those days when people matched their clothes with their makeup. I was too young and didn’t wear makeup at that time, but I always tried to do this with nailpolish. Pink shirt? Pink nails it is!

I purchased this beautiful dark green sweater at H&M in sale and I was so sure of having the same color in eyeshadow. I already imagined it in my head, me wearing that sweater with dark green smokey eyes. As they say, dreams are dreams, not reality. Yes, because in reality it wasn’t what I imagined.

IMG_4752.JPG

This is the color we’re talking about. Too Faced even called it ‘Earl GREY’ so why I thougt it was dark green is a big question. In the pan it really looked like a very dark green in my eyes, but on my eyes it is so grey. Disapointment.

img_4737-2img_4755-2

I still tried to make something out of it, result: sort of grey smokey eye something. It doens’t show that good on camera, but I wanted to smoke it out a bit on the outside and a lighter color on the inner corner. I used the colors Earl Grey, Mocha and Satin Sheets from the Too Faced Bon Bons Chocolate Palette. A big wing and some mascara to finish the look.

IMG_4757.JPG

For the face I used the Catrice Even Skin Tone Beautifying Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me concealer, Maybelline Matte Maker Mattyfing Powder, Makeup Revolution Contour Palette to contour and highlight, Freedom Peach Blush Palette.

For my brows I used the Kiko Eyebrow Sculpt Pencil and the Catrice Eyebrow Gel.

On my lips I’m wearing Velvet Teddy by MAC. One of my favorite nude colors!

I combined the pretty dark green sweater with this cute demin overall dress, but there will be a post about that later on!

Thank you for visiting. Have a lovely day!

MOTD: MAC Diva

IMG_4692.JPG

One of my first MAC lipsticks was Diva. I think it was winter 2015 when I got this one from my grandma. That was also the time this lipstick was totally hyped. You can’t blame anyone, this color is still perfect for fall and winter.

IMG_4694.JPG

I love the color, it is a dark red. Not to dark and still very classy for something chic. For me it’s the “perfect red”, as I don’t like normal red lips on myself. I also love how it is so matte and how it stays on for so long. Only, because it is so matte, it makes your lips also very dry after a day of wearing it.

IMG_4699.JPG

The lips draw so much attention when you wear this color, so I always go for natural eyes. Sometimes brown eyeshadow with some mascara or a winged eyeliner and mascara. This time I combined it, natural eyeshadow and a winged liner.

For the rest of my face I just used my everyday makeup routine.

img_4708-2

I love how this look is perfect with a little black dress, or any other black/grey outfit. The lipstick also stays on very long, however I always try not to wear this to a dinner. Doesn’t matter what dark lipstick I wear, it always leaves me with the only lipliner look when I eat a meal.

I hope you liked it, have a lovely day!

Christmas & Glitters

20161227_152301.jpg

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your family/friends and had a delicious dinner. I’ve eaten a lot of tasty food and had a lot of fun with my family. Can’t believe Christmas is over already 😦

This Christmas day I decided to wear something different than my pj’s haha. Normally the family dinner is at our house, but this time we went to my aunt, so I had to dress up. I got this beautiful glitter skirt for Christmas Eve, so that was perfect to wear! It is so glittery, I left a whole track of glitters everywhere ooops.

20161225_224946

The skirt is from H&M, just as the shirt. I combined it with my boots, to make it a bit warmer. We were a bit in a hurry so I couldn’t make very good photo’s sadly.

Kerst_2016_062.JPG

For makeup I also went a bit more festive, I added some glitters to my eyes. I did not have a lot of time to do full glam 😦

That was my outfit for Christmas Day. It was a fun day, I had a lovely breakfast with my parents and sister before work (very early) and a delicious dinner with my family at my aunt. Christmas Eve, I’ve worked also and had a delicous Indonesian dinner at my grandparents. On Boxing Day, (in my last post I called it “Second Christmas Day” lol, my dad corrected me) I’ve worked all day. I’ve spended more time at work this Christmas than home, but that makes the moments with the family more special :).

Well that’s it. It’s sad that Christmas is already over, but it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it!

Glitter Cut Crease

20161213_153107_001

In this post, I showed the Primark Glitter Palette. To be honest, I had not really used it yet because the quality wasn’t great. But today I decided to try to make a cut crease with the glitter palette and even though I have glitters on my face EVERYWHERE (help) I’m really content with the look. It was my first time creating a proper cut crease, and I’m happy with the result.

IMG_4459.JPG

For this look I used the glitter palette, a brown eyeshadow (the color I used is from the I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate pallete) and a concealer to cut the crease.

IMG_4475.JPG

Here is a swatch of the glitter I used. In the pan it is a bit greasy, but it gets more glittery dry on the skin. The only problem is that the glitters smudge on the eye because of the warmth of your skin.

Step one

IMG_4463.JPG

I started with blending the brown eyeshadow in the crease. It does not have to be very precise, we are going to clean it up later. I also blende the edges with a white eyeshadow to make it less harsh.

Step two

img_4464

With the concealer we ‘cut the crease’. It’s the intention that the line is a bit more sharper, but hey first time, I still need practise. Also, don’t use to much concealer because when you use to much products this can smudge too.

Step three

img_4472img_4473

Last step: add the glitters!! As you see on the last picture, the glitters already smudges a bit when I blinked sadly.

To complete the look I added a coat of mascara, some brown eyeshadow on the low lashline an I cleaned the edges.

img_448320161213_153110

And that’s the finished look! The glitters make it really festive, so it’s perfect for Christmas or New Years. I did not add a lipcolor, but I would go for a red or a nude color. The eyes already get so much attention because of the glitter and I always like the ‘rule’: Or bold eyes or bold lips. But in this case I think a red lipcolor would look lovely!

Hope you liked it! Have a nice day 🙂

Natural Winter Makeup

20161208_163604

This look feels perfect for the winter season. I always like to keep it natural, with winged eyeliner and a pretty lipcolor. I recently purchased the NYX Soft Matte Lipcream in the color London. It is a beautiful nude color, it reminds me of MAC Velvet Teddy. When I created this makeup look with that lipcolor, for me it seemed to be the perfect everyday winter makeup. It is a very safe look, you can’t really go wrong with it.

IMG_4444.JPG

For the base you can use what you want, foundation, bbcream, concealer. Just create a flawless base. Also I contoured a bit using the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette, used a soft pink blush from essence (number 20 Babydoll) to give my face some color. I tried to keep it natural.

Now for the more important parts of this look, the eyes and the lips. For the eyes I used my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. I always like to use a brown color in the crease, and a highlighting/shimmery color on the eyelid. In this case I used Almond Truffle and Mocha in the crease, Satin Sheets on the eyelid and Divinity on the brown bone. With the NYC high definition liquid liner I made a wing and I used the Maybelline Falsies mascara to finish it. (And again I forgot the photograph the mascara, sigh)

20161208_165609

For the lips I used the NYX Soft Matte Lipcream in London. I love these, they are good quality. The color London is new in my collection, but it’s the perfect nude color for me. And it is almost the same as MAC Velvet Teddy

20161208_163811-1

Here is the eyeshadow a bit more showable. Excuse my bad closeup photograph skills, I tried but it were awkward photos haha, so I decided to put full face photos in this post instead.

Thank you so much for reading, have a nice day!
