Halloween Party Make-Up

Hey everyone! I came up with this look for halloween! We don't really celebrate halloween over here so unfortunately I will not be showing off this look... but you can. :) I used colors that remind me of halloween, purple for vampires (don't ask) and orange for pumpkins, I mashed everything together and this is the result! Have fun recreating. :)

NOTD Matte Camouflage Nails

Hey girls, sorry I haven't posted in over 2 weeks but I was just really busy with school. :( I'm on fall-break now so I'll try to write some blogposts in advance to keep up with blogging! I picked this nailpolish up at H&M for just €1 and it immediately made me think of camouflage print so that's the nail art I did today! It was super simple! I also added an orange rhinestone on every finger just because I felt like doing it. I also applied a matte topcoat! :)

Let's go Gangnam Style!

Since I love Gangnam Style I decided to do a nail-art inspired by PSY! It took me about 2,5 hours to do both hands and I'm really happy about how it turned out. I got so many compliments, haha. :) 

How do you guys like it? Let me know!
You also got the Gangnam crazies just like me? ;)

Schwarzkopf Color Mask Hairdye - Review

I've recently dyed my friends hair and when we finished choosing the right color for her the lady who works there got really excited about us trying this hairdye since it's something new she hasn't heard of before. This made me really curious! Apparently it's a new form of hairdye in a jar, and you use it like you would use a hairmask. Interesting!

Hi girliessss! I've recently been shopping for some nail-art stuff and I came across a pack of glitters and I just  had to get it because I loooove glitter manicures! :) I used my ChinaGlaze nailpolish and on top of that I applied a matte topcoat, and lastly I did the glitter manicure. I absolutely love the look of this and I have 9 more colors to experiment with, so keep an eye open for that and I'll see you in my next post! X

ONYX Sheet Masks! - Review

Me and my best friend stopped by at Action for some stuff and I found these sheet masks! I didn't expect much since they were just €1,35 for 8 masks, wow. The next day me and my friends went to the lake and my skin felt really dry after being exposed to the sun all day since the weather was absolutely loveley! So I decided to try out one of the masks, and wow, I love these! They're so hydrating and full of moisture that I could wear these all day long. At first my skin started tingling but it wasn't uncomfortable or anything.  I knew these kind of masks are really popular in Asia, I haven't seen a lot around here but I'm glad I found these!

I joined a giveaway!

I joined a giveaway by TheBlackPearlBlog, check it out HERE!

Catrice NOTD!

Hi guyssss! I've recently won a Catrice Giveaway and I'll be showing you one of the nailpolishes I won! As you can see this is a beautiful bronze polish with a silver reflect in it. Most of the bronze nailpolishes I see have a golden reflect, so I was happily surprised to see that this one is different!
Catrice nailpolishes are always qualitatively great and they're only €2,70 which is amaaaazing.

Fall Wishlist

Hi everyone!! Has school started for you yet? If so, I hope you're enjoying it :) Mine has already started and the weather was absolutely horrible today. Me and my friends looked like racers on our bikes trying to get home as fast as possible to escape from the rain, but unfortunately we couldn't and I came home soaked wet and my mascara all over the place... I blame myself though, I don't like wearing waterproof mascare since I find it hard to remove.

I won! Thank you Catrice!

Hi everyone! I know I haven't posted in a few days, but school has already started for me so I was just getting my stuff together to start the year! Most of my classes are really fun and so are my classmates. :)

On to the topic now! Me and 2 other girls have recently won a Catrice giveaway! I didn't expect to win, since hundreds of girls joined, but I was more than happy to be one of the winners. And even more excited to have some new stuff to review for you guys, haha. For now I'll just show you pictures of everything I got, and once I've got the time I'll try everything out and review some of my favorite products. :) Enjoy!

My new bag!

Tadaaa, my new bag! :D I've been eyeing this baby for the longest time and I finally mine! It was sold out at my local H&M so I had to puchase it online for €39,95 and I'm absolutely in love with it. The size is perfect and the studs give this bag an edgy vibe.

Middelburg Vacation Haul!

Hi everyone :) I haven't had a lot of time to blog the past few days because I was on holiday, and I still am! I'm with my parents, best friend, my little sister and her best friend in Zeeland. The weather is really nice, and so is the house we're staying in! Me and my best friend have filmed a lot during the past few days so I might upload a vlog video soon. :) We went to Middelburg today and I've picked some stuff up that I really want to show you guys, here we go!

My Favorite Bronzer

Bronzers give your skin a healty glow, make you look tanned and they shape your face. I always use a shimmery bronzer because I like my face to have a bit of a healthy glow! This bronzer can also function as a highlighter and eyeshadow, that's why I like it even more.

New Essence Nailpolishes! - Review

As a lot of you girls may know essence has finally brought out their new nailpolish collection! I was so excited about the new colors and packaging that I just HAD to pick some up to review them! I don't think we have all the new colors since our Essence shelf isn't that big, but I'm fine with the colors we have. :)

Nailpolish collection

It's time for a nailpolish collection post! My collection counts just above a 100 nailpolishes, not too bad right? I'm still adding to the collection though. It's never-ending, heheh. >:)

Nivea Pure & Natural - Review

Looking good and feeling good about yourself starts with good skin. Your skin is your canvas, and if your canvas doens't look nice, how do you expect your artwork to look nice? You'll create a nice canvas by taking good care of it. Keep your skin healthy and clean it every day. Find out which products work best for you and stick to those. You'll also need creams to moisturize your skin, because a lot of toners/facewashes dry out your skin. I recently purchased the Nivea Pure & Natural day- and nightcream. I've been really liking these and that's why I'm going to tell you guys a little something about these!

Make-Up Collection August 2012 - Video

Hi there! I just filmed a make-up collection video because I thought it'd be nice to share with you guys. The boxes I storage my make-up in are from Ikea, you can devide them however you want. The box came with a lid on it but I took it off because I have these boxes laying openly in my drawer.

Hello lovelies! :) I want to thank every single one of you who joined my giveaway, I really appreciate it!
I had to chose from 28 entries and I looked at every single blog, and the one that stood out the most to me was Color your life! I already contacted her, but since she is on holiday it might take her a while to reply.

Thanks for joining, and I might be doing another giveaway in the future, so don't be dissapointed if you didn't make it this time! :)

Teeez Foundation Brush - Review

Hey! I've recently bought this stippling brush from Teeez, and I wanted to share this product with you!
Teeez is a cosmetics brand and they also do make-up brushes. This was the first time seeing a stippling brush from a non high end brand in store, so of course I had to pick it up! Teeez hasn't been in store for a very long time here, so I guess this brand is fairly new?

NOTD/Nails Of The Day

These are my nails of the day! They're inspired by the Skyline nails cutepolish did on her YouTube Channel (Video down below). I know mine don't look exactly like hers because I added glitters to the sky and I used a different sponging technique... and simply because I'm not as good as her, haha!

LOTD/Lips Of The Day

Hi girlss! I'm starting to get into the NOTD (Nails Of The Day), EOTD (Eyes Of The Day), OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) kind of things, so my first OTD!

I'm wearing nude lips, because my eye makeup was a bit heavier than usual. (Yes, I have freckles. They pop up in the summer, I quite like them!)

Glitter Ice Cream Nail-Art

Hey girls! I was in a Nail-Art mood today... does that make sense? Probably not. I was looking for some inspiration on YouTube and Google, and after looking at some designs I decided to do ice cream nails. They're really cute and perfect for summer!

My first China Glaze purchase! :D I've always wanted to try out China Glaze since I've heard a lot of good things about it! I'm really curious about how long this nailpolish lasts... Because I've applied a base coat, then 2 coats of the China Glaze nailpolish and my new Gel Top Coat from Essence.

Nail-Art... What do I need?

Nail-Art... Don't we all love watching Nail-Art tutorials on YouTube? At least, I do. They seem so easy but when you try it yourself it's suddenly not as easy anymore and you may not have the right tools to accieve the same look as they have. I find myself not only struggling like this with Nail-Art, but also with Make-Up! It seems to easy but when I try it out I fail... That's not a reason to give up though. Nail-Art and Make-Up are my passion, I like doing it, so I will continue doing it! I've improved a lot during the years, and I'm still learning new things every day!

Sleek Palette - Review

I'm sooo excited to review this product! I've been wanting to purchase a Sleek palette for the longest time, so when I went shopping with my best friend and I found out there was an "Afro Shop" I just couldn't resist. ;)  The packaging is absolutely gorgeous. The whole packaging is matte black with a shiny Sleek logo on the front... so pretty.

Oriflame Pure Skin - Review

Hello lovelies! I've been using the Oriflame pure skin line for a few weeks now and it's about time for me to do a review on these products! I've mentioned Oriflame before, click HERE to read it! I use the scrub, toner, and treatment gel every day. I use the mask about 3 times a week. I don't have sensitive skin so it's okay for me to scrub every night since this scrub is not too harsh. Okay, let's get into the products now...

Smokey Eyes with purple - Photo Tutorial

Hey girlssss :) I'm really excited to show you guys how I achieved this eye make-up! I was just looking through my eyeshadows and I found some fun colors to create a look with. My last photo tutorial was my Everyday Eye Make-Up, so this time I decided to go for a look that is a bit more daring. For a night out maybe? :)

Make-Up Haul

SHOPPING HAUL :D Yay! I picked some stuff up when I was shopping with my best friends. I don't think you can get these products anymore, they're old limited editions or discontinued items. That's why I got all these products for a really good price.

H&M Coconut Lime Body Scrub - Review

Hey girlsss! I'll be reviewing the coconut lime body scrub from H&M this time! The packaging is what really caught my eye about this product. I haven't tried a lot of body scrubs yet, so I was excited to try this out. The smell didn't really do it for me... It does smell like coconut and lime but in a non-natural way. The smell is not too harsh, and the scent won't last long on your skin.

Dove Beauty Body Cream - Review

Hey girls! I'm going to review my favorite body cream ever today! It's the Dove Body Silk Beauty Body Cream. I don't know where I got this creme, but it's been in my cabinet for quite a while now, and as soon as I found it I started using it non-stop. I love Dove products in general, but this is my all-time favorite for sure!

My Everyday Eye Make-Up

Hey girls :) I'll be showing you my everyday eye make-up today! I don't wear this everyday though, just when I feel like doing it and when I have some extra time in the morning. I usually just wear some pearly eyeshadow and mascara, that's it. But don't we all like dolling ourselves up a bit more sometimes? This look contains 4 steps which are easy to follow!
