My daily make-up look 2017

Hey guys! How have you been? 
I have done "my daily make-up look" posts  before, but I don't think I've updated it the last couple of months. It might even have been a year since I last showed you a look. While I was getting ready today, I figured I might as well show you what I have been using.

I only got my hands on the Urban Decay Naked palette a few months ago. Finally I got to see what the hype was about and I can now completely understand why all of the Naked palettes have been so popular and successful. Not a big surprise that this palette is the only one I like to keep at my boyfriend's house. 

I haven't done a review on the Urban Decay Naked palette because I felt like there were already plenty of reviews out there on the Internet. However, I have used it nearly everyday and the eyeshadows are great to work with. I also love the variety of colours because you can really get creative and try a bunch of different looks.
I have about four different looks that I like to create with this palette. This one that I'm showing you today is my favourite.

This look is a very sweet, girly and subtle look. It shows that you did put time and effort in your look, but it's not in your face like a smokey eye would be. This look is pretty much suitable for any occassion. I wear it on dates, I wear it to work or to go grocery shopping and I even wear it to go out.

I used "Naked" in my crease and later on darkened the outer corner using "Buck". Next I applied "Toasted", the rosé eyeshadow all over my lid and darkened the outer "v" with "Hustle", a purple eyeshadow that complements the pink perfectly. I also brightened the inner corner with a dusty light pink colour called "Sin". I used the lightest shade "Virgin" as a browbone highlight.

A new 'do!

Hi everyone! 
April has been the month of changes: I have started a fulltime job, I am moving out of my own apartment and moving in with my boyfriend- and because all of that wasn't enough,
I also changed my hair colour! 

I've always struggled with damaged hair due to all the different colours and I think the blonde/white might have been a bit too much for me to handle. I've now gone back to my natural hair colour, which is dark blonde/light brown.
I'm also going to keep you updated on my hair routine and tell you which produdcts have kept my hair healthy! 

I hope you have fun today and get to eat a lot of chocolate Easter eggs!

H&M Glitter Dust review

Hello everyone! How have you been?
Today's review is a review that I've been looking forward to for a while! Although I like to keep my eye make-up on a daily basis quite neutral, I love to experiment and do something extra every once in a while too.
When I go out, when there's a birthday or any other special occassion, I like to go for a make-up look that stands out. Sometimes that means a smokey eye but recently, I have been loving glitter.

I got this loose glitter named after Catherine Wheel at H&M.

Here's what a tiny bit of the product looks like on my wrist. In the picture below you can see what it looks like if you 'swatch' it.
I think the glitter is really pretty. You do need a good base or some nice glitter glue to get the desired effect.

Below you can find a picture of when I did my friend's make-up. We both have thesame eye make-up look and even though the light is quite bright, you can really see the glitter pop! Lovely!
Add some eyeliner, maybe some false lashes, and you're ready to go!

Where have I gone?

Hello everyone! How have you been?
Some of you might be wondering where I've gone this last week. How's life? What am I up to when I'm not blogging?

I have to admit that earlier this month I decided to drop out of school for personal reasons. Although I don't want to get into details, I have to say that it is a big relief to be able to start over. Of course, I did struggle with my decision for a while, but it was something that no longer put a smile on my face.

So... I haven't blogged in a week and I haven't gone to school in a while. What hàve I been doing?

I have accepted a fulltime job that I do with a lot of passion and my boyfriend and I (I don't talk about him a lot but he does exist haha) have been looking for a place of our own.

The future is starting now. I don't know what it may bring, but I know that I'm very happy right now and that's what matters.

Have a lovely day, do what you love and I'll talk to you soon!

EOTD: A dash of silver

Goodmorning everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today's post is one that I'm very excited about. You might have seen a little something pop up on Instagram already. (Click the word "Instagram", it'll take you to my page if you'd like to see the posts I'm referring to)

Recently I told you that I haven't been experimenting with make-up that much anymore and that I do really miss it. So I made a change and have been making time to try out new things. I went out of my comfort zone and went for a red/burgundy smokey eye look, which I didn't think I'd love, but I ended up liking it a lot. 

I used my "I ♥ make-up chocolate palette", which has been sitting on my desk since I got it in November, but I almost didn't want to use it because it was too pretty. I swatched it, and then that was it. I looked at it every single day but never touched it. Until now and I'm glad I did. The colours are wearable and the possibilities for looks are endless. They're also very pigmented and easy to blend. I'll have a more in depth review online soon.

Like I said, I used burgundy and red tones a lot, combined with a nice, dark chocolate brown.
In the middle of the lid, I added some H&M Fluid Foil (read my review on this product by clicking here). This is a gorgeous sparkly silver which lights up the look a little bit and makes it more wearable.

To neutralize the red tones and not make me look sick, I applied eyeliner on both the upper- and lower lashline.

Here's a full face of the make-up look. Close up pictures will be enclosed in my review on the palette that I used.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and I'll see you soon!
