Fenty Beauty Galaxy eyeshadow palette review

It's been a couple of months since Christmas. Almost all of my Christmas presents were make-up and blog related and after two months of testing and trying, I have a pretty good idea of which items I like and which items I don't.

The first review I'm going to be writing is my Fenty Beauty Galaxy palette. I've done quite a few looks on this palette and I've been hinting on my Instagram page, so this might look familiar to you.

The packaging is so gorgeous. Out of all the palettes I own, I think this one is one of my favourites - if not, my biggest favourite.

All of the eyeshadows in the palette are shimmery. They are all quite light in colour and there are a lot of different shades: from pink to gold, to purple, to copper, green and taupe.

Here are some colours that I have swatched. I was very surprised by how good the quality was. I'm always a little bit sceptical of celebrity make-up brands, but this is one that I don't regret.

Here are some eye looks that I've done with this palette. I'm very satisfied with how these shadows apply on the eyes. Very cute!

Have you tried out any Fenty Beauty products?

Have a good day!

EOTD: Frost

Every once in a while I get really inspired. It can be by nature, like when I see a sunset I like to create a similar look using yellow and orange eyeshadows.
I can get inspired by buildings, or by things I see on instagram.
I've been wanting to do a very bright, colourful look for a long time now. I have a gorgeous blue liquid eyeliner in my drawer that I can't use on a daily basis so I decided to do a look with this one. I used to be scared of pink and then I started doing a lot of pink looks. It's been ages since I've done anything with any blue eyeshadow, so I thought this would be a nice change for once.

The blue eyeshadow that I used is from a new Zoeva palette that I'm testing. I'm also using the blue eyeshadow from my Fenty Beauty Galaxy palette.
Probably my favourite product in this whole look is the MAC pigment that I used on my eyelid. It's called "Blue Brown" and it's a taupe with some blue sparkles in it.
So pretty - and you can make it wearable! 

Would you like to see more of these fun looks?

OOTD: Burgundy faux fur

One of the best memories of last year was my solo trip in November. I went to Lisbon on my own, which was so scary for me because I have anxiety and also, I'm very bad at orientation so I was frightened, because there would be nobody to help me. I did - against all odds, haha - return safely to Belgium with so many good memories and great experiences in my proverbial backpack.

I met so many people and saw so many things that I could never even have dreamed of! Although I bought a lot of souvenirs for my family and friends back home, I only brought back one thing for myself: this Hard Rock Café shirt. We have a Hard Rock Café here, but I've never been there. Visiting the one in Lisbon was a good idea though and whenever I see this shirt I always have to think of the adventures.

Today I paired it with my new faux fur jacket and some ripped jeans and booties for a "tougher" look. I put my hair up in a high bun, which I really like. I'm not used to putting it this high, but I think it's quite cute.

To match my outfit, I'm wearing my "Diva" lipstick by MAC and a sultry smokey eye.
Which countries have you been inspired by? Do you ever solo travel?

Have a good one!

EOTD: Lovey Dovey

Goodmorning! How have you been? Last week I didn't feel like doing a special look for Valentine's Day. I like the fact that we celebrate love on Valentine's Day, but I won't necessarily wear pink or purple on my eyes that day. 

This weekend however, I did decide to go for pink. This pink shade is my favourite shade from the Hudabeauty Rosé palette - which I have been testing this last week and which I will be reviewing in one of my next posts.

As you can see this palette holds such pretty colours! I used "Shy" in my crease and worked the brightest pink, called "Flamingo" in my crease as well. I used the hot pink "Maneater" and "Bossy" in my outer crease corner and finished the whole look with "Fling" - a hot pink shimmery eyeshadow. Later on, I put some of the "Rose" gold in the middle of my eyelid for a halo effect. You can see the chunks. I like it!

I used gel eyeliner on my lower waterline and some mascara to complete this look!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think! 
Have a good day!

OOTD: Belfort

Goodmorning! How have you been? How did you spend your Valentine's Day?
I hope you had a really good one!
We don't really make a big holiday of it, we try to spend time and effort on each other every week when we have the day off.

Days off are also my favourite days for outfit pictures! This one is from a little while back. I got this dress online. 
I got this because the promo picture was a lady with this dress and a red handbag. The details of the flowers in this dress and the handbag matched so beautifully, I had to have it! Women's logic, right?

We went to the belfree in the centre of Bruges to take this picture. I live very close to the belfree, which is so efficient for everyday life, but the belfree never loses it's beauty to me. I often find myself looking at it. Some people say that if you live in a historic city with many tourists, you don't think it's special anymore because you've gotten so used to it. I haven't, just yet! 
I can't wait to explore more parts of the city for outfit pictures!
My handbag and boots are by H&M. My tights are from Calzedonia and my coat is by New Look! 

Have a good one.
