EOTD: Delicate and sweet!

Hello everyone!
The "face of the day" look that I'm sharing with you today is really simple and sweet. I love working with colour and experimenting with eyeshadows, but today I wanted a cute, sweet look.
Something simple, but still sophisticated. Dark purple, yellow or flashy green are so much fun to wear, but that kind of look isn't always appropriate.
(I actually wore this look out on a first date last week which was really exciting but I was also dying inside, I tend to get so nervous!)

I applied eyeshadowbase before starting with the eyeshadows. I used a medium brown in my crease, a dark brown on the outer corner and a pale pink on my eyelid. I used a matte white eyeshadow on my browbone to highlight. And of course I used Essence liquid eyeliner and mascara!

That's the finished look! Thanks for reading!
Have a good day!

Fitspiration: food part #2


Food can mean so much to a person. It can mean problems, or joy, worries, comfort. I'm a real foodie. I love food. I enjoy food and I try to mix my meals up as much as I can.
Sometimes though, I have to be reminded of how good a piece of fruit can taste. Lucekly, any type of inspiration you need can be found on Tumblr.
Also food inspiration. I always feel motivated to eat more healthy food if I see healthy food. So that's why I like to surround myself with pictures of healthy food.
Need some inspiration too? I got you covered!

I hope this has inspired you to eat healthier as well! More "fitspiration" posts will be up soon!

Have a good day! Be nice to the people around you!

Essence liquid eyeliner - updated version review!


Eyeliner is my signature look. My god, I love eyeliner. For years now, I've been applying a little black line close to my lashline to make my eyes pop.
In all those years, I have used thesame eyeliner by thesame brand - simply because it's a good product. Recently Essence, the brand that makes the eyeliner I use, has updated their eyeliner and I'm going to review the updated version for you! If you want to see the old product, I reviewed it right here!


The first thing that has changed is the packaging. It is now oval. I don't know why they changed it because I liked the previous packaging but okay.
The colours stayed thesame.


When I opened this eyeliner, I noticed it didn't have the brush I'm used to. It used to have a soft brush that was quite flexible, and I thought it worked fine.
Anyway, it has changed, it now has an "extra soft tip". It is flexible as well but sometimes it doesn't distribute the product evenly, which means I have to go over thesame line twice or even three times. It happened with the other brush as well, but not as much.

The pigmentation of the product has not changed.

This is what the eyeliner looks like on my eye. I think it looks fine and I think the product still works well. I have no idea why Essence decided to change their product because the previous version was fine.

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!

Weekly Diary

Hello you guys! Happy Sunday!
I haven't uploaded a Weekly Diary in a while because I've been busy, but here I am! 

I've had a lot of work but I've also had a lot of fun in the last couple of weeks, today I'm going to tell you about it!
 I finished my exams a few days before February started and I also passed all of my exams! The night we got our results, the girls from school and I went out to celebrate!

My dad got me a little present as well! I got this beautiful swan necklace from him. I think it's so unique. Especially the blue "body" of the swan, I think it's so beautiful!
I wear it everyday.

After the exams, I went to my internship for a week. I'm studying to become a history and English teacher so soon I'll be teaching myself! I'm so excited! 

Okay so that is what happened these last few weeks. 
Last week, school started again, semester 2. A lot of students didn't make it, but a few new students joined us as well. 
This is a picture of all the girls who are also close friends - there are two girls missing because they were sick, but it's nice to have a close group to rely on!

And this week I also treated myself! I got a new lipstick by MAC. You know what they say, sometimes you've got to treat yourself! 

I survived Friday the 13th and Valentine's Day, and I'm looking forward to a new week!
I hope you are as well!

Have a lovely Sunday!

MAC "Dark Side" lipstick review ♥

Happy Valentine's Day! 
I hope you have a nice day ahead of you! It had been a long time since I treated myself, after the exams I went right to my internship and I also started working in the service industry again. Soon I will be teaching and school is back on track, so I don't think I will have a relaxed vacation any time soon.
Instead of having a break, I let myself pick out something that I've had my eye on for quite a while now (because sometimes you have to treat yourself).

I got a new lipstick by MAC! This one is called "Dark Side". I actually wanted "Diva" but they didn't have it in stock anymore.
This lipstick is the exact same colour, exept it's not matt and "Diva" is.

This is what the lipstick looks like, it's a gorgeous burgundy colour. Especially for this time of year, when the weather is still quite cold and the days are short, this lipstick is perfect. 
I've said it before, I like wearing darker make-up in winter, but the eyes don't always have to be the focus!

If you are into make-up, you might have heard about MAC already - I can't say anything bad about the brand or this lipstick. It's creamy, the pigmentation is really good and it lasts long. I'm also madly in love with the colour, it's so beautiful!
I paid €19 for this lipstick, which is totally worth it! This lipstick is sold in every MAC store.

Thanks for reading!
Have a lovely Saturday!

EOTD: Going Green

I haven't worn eyeshadow for a while now, first I had the exams and then I had my internship and I didn't want to overdo it, so I just kept it simple with eyeliner and mascara.
Today I decided I wanted to do something with eyeshadow again, I had some time to spare and I missed using my good old eyeshadows.

I used my "Sumptuous Olive" from MAC and a bunch of different brown eyeshadow shades from my "Nude Tude" palette by The Balm. This look was a little darker than I expected, but I like darker make-up looks during winter.

I have done many neutral looks with this olive eyeshadow, but it remains one of my favourites. Instead of doing a big winged eyeliner, I went for a subtile eyeliner. I also applied some mascara. The mascara I'm using is my newest "Get Big lashes" mascara by Essence.

That's today's look! I hope you liked it!
Thanks for reading and have a good day!

Products I regret buying

I don't do these types of posts often but... It's time for a "Products I regret buying".
Over the years I have collected tons and tons of make-up products and I haven't always been happy with what I got.... It saddens me to say that some products are just complete trash. Today I'm going to show you the products I got, but never really got into (and why)!

First of all, this Catrice primer! I heard such good things about it and I needed a good eyeshadow base so I thought, why not?
Unfortunately this eyeshadowbase crumbled. It actually crumbled which made it difficult to apply my eyeshadow properly.

I was so, so excited about this eyeshadow palette by H&M because it had some beautiful colours in it and I bought another small palette that worked quite well. But unfortunately, the pigmentation of some eyeshadows just sucked and there was more fall out than actual eyeshadow. Too bad!

I was so happy with this skintoned eyeliner, but after using it for a couple of days, the pencil broke and there was nothing left. Not very good news!

I think three products is enough for today, I will have some more posts online in the future! 
Have a good day!

Essence Get Big Lashes triple black!

Hey you guys! How are you doing?
If you read my blog often, you know I always use liquid eyeliner and mascara by Essence.
I have had two different kinds of "Get big lashes" mascara by Essence and last week I got the "triple black" version! 


The packaging of this mascara is nice. It's thesame as all the other "get big lashes" mascara packaging, but it has different colours. I like the hot pink and purple! 

This is what the brush looks like.

 Now I'm sure you want to see the effect of this mascara on my lashes. Here it is! 
I think this mascara is alright, it gives me long, black lashes. That's what I want!

This picture was shot after work and as you can see, my liquid eyeliner is giving up in this picture, haha!
