EOTD: Smoke


Ah, June is finally over. July has arrived which means no more school, no more worries, some time to enjoy! 
I have been meeting up with friends and I must admit I have also attended some parties. Today I want to show you the make-up look I did for one of the parties I went to. It's a classic smokey eye.

Instead of the normal warm colours I like to use on my eyes, I went for silver, white and black. This look took some time because it needs a lot of blending but I'm quite pleased with the result. I used colours from all the palettes I have, a little mix and match to achieve just the right look!

What do you think of this make-up look? 
Thanks for reading! Have a good day!

FOTD: Mom 💄

Hello! How are you?
I've been spending a lot of time with friends and family recently. Last night I spent time with my mom and I did her make-up. My mom doesn't wear make-up that often because she has very sensitive skin but she sucked it up and made the best of it.
Of course I decided I wanted some pictures for the blog! 

 We went for full face make-up with contouring and everything. Mom wanted a smokey eye so that's what we did, we ended up adding green. We both were very happy with the endresult! What do you think?

OOTD: Oral exam

As you know I recently had exams. I always fear the exams a little, mainly because I don't know what to expect. Oral exams are the scariest to me, I'm always afraid to black out and because I can be such a stressed out person sometimes, I only make it worse for myself.

Today's outfit is the outfit that I wore to my last exam - an oral exam. I like to go for black clothing because it always looks more sophisticated/classy. Also, I just feel really comfortable in black clothes. I may not always feel good about oral exams but if you feel good in the clothes you're wearing, part of your problem is already solved. 

This outfit is an all black outfit, except for the jeans jacket that I'm wearing. I got this jacket a few weeks ago and I think it looks a little edgy, I feel really good in it. You can't really see it in the pictures but there are some rhinestones attached, which is pretty. The top that I'm wearing is black, it's see through at the top and it's embellished. I paired it with my black pants from H&M and new wedges from H&M.

I liked this look a lot. It's not over the top but I felt like it was nice enough for an oral exam and I sure felt good in it.
Let me know how you feel about this outfit!

FOTD: College friend ♥

As someone who is very interested in make-up, beauty and hair, I spend a lot of time on the Internet. I like to read other blogs to get insiration or watch videos/tutorials on youtube.
When I first started going to college, way back in September, I never thought I'd meet someone equally interested/obsessed with youtube beauty guru's and blogs. But I did meet someone like that, my good friend Rani.

We have been spending so much time working on school assignments and studying for exams that somehow, our passion got a little lost during the year. Now that the exams are over, I decided it was time to do what I hadn't done in so long: make-up!
Before going out I did a neutral smokey eye on Rani, using "Texture" from MAC as the main eyecatcher. All the other colours I used were different shades of brown.

I realised that it's been too long since I've been doing what I love; blogging, doing make-up. Anyway, I will be working on my timemanagement, as I've said many times before on this blog, and here are a few pictures of the make-up I did on my gorgeous friend! 

Have a nice day!

OOTD: Navy

Happy Monday! 


I'm back with another outfit of the day! This one was snapped by a new friend of mine (we met through a mutual friend). He liked the outfit I was wearing while I was on a studydate with our mutual friend and decided to take some pictures.

The weather outside was so nice. It was very hot, almost too hot to handle if it wasn't for the soft breeze.
I had a really good day that day, met a lot of people and had a lot of fun! Oh, and as for the studying - we ended up doing that as well and we both passed the exam!

The bathing suit that I'm wearing is one that I got at New Look last year. It has such a rockabilly/pin-up feel to it, I love it!
The high waisted shorts, which I was happy to pull out of the back of my closet, are by H&M. I wore them with the cutest sandals by New Look.

I ended up having a great time and I love the pictures! Some of them were taken without me knowing which worked out pretty well, I'm not really used to that, I normally make a really weird faces when I'm talking but this time, I actually looked normal.

Have you been able to enjoy the weather? Don't forget to go outside to enjoy the sun for a minute!
Thanks for reading!

Essence sunset @ center stage blush review

Hey you guys! How are you doing?
I recently started using a new blush. I found this ombre looking blush by Essence and I thought it would be absolutely amazing. There's a little bit of peach and a little bit of pink in this blush, and the colour goes from very dark to very light.


The packaging of this blush isn't really spectacular, even though it's from a limited edition. I think they did this because they didn't want to take away from the ombre look of this blush.

Sunset @ center stage

This is what the blush looks like when you swatch it. It's well pigmented. I really like it!

This is what the blush looks like when I have it on my face. I like this blush a lot!

Big Sean ♥

Hi you guys! How are you doing? I couldn't be better. My exams are finished and to celebrate, we went to see Big Sean in the captial of Belgium, Brussels on Wednesday the 17th of June.
I am so impressed and so pleasantly surprised that I just need to tell you guys about it.

I'm going to be honest, I haven't been a Big Sean fan since the beginning, I started listening to him when "Ass" featuring Nicki Minaj came out. Ever since, my admiration has been growing.
Two of my closest friends wanted nothing more than to go, so I tagged along. My god, what an experience.


Big Sean inspired me so much last night. Not only by the lyrics of his music, but also by the personal things he shared and telling the people in the audience to keep dreaming and to never give up. I love it when people give a speech and you can just feel the strength and motivation flow through your vains.
I love how he talked about his family with so much passion, I think Big Sean is someone with a tremendous amount of respect, love and honour for the important people in his life, which was so good to see.

My friends and I expected Big Sean to be good, but we never thought it'd be this good. We had so much fun and it's very nice to just have that kind of team spirit with people at a concert, even though you don't really know each other.

Belgium is absolutely crazy about Big Sean and I can more than ever relate!

OOTD: Maxi

Hello everyone! How have you been doing?
It's been quite a while since I last updates this blog. As you might know, I am now in college and I have been struggeling with timemanagement a bit.
These last few weeks I have been taking exams, which is why I didn't upload. I don't want to fail my exams so that's what I have been focussing on.
However, it won't be long until the exams are finally over and I have spent some time working on the blog recently.
I feel like apologizing for not updating often is becoming a habit and I'm not too happy about it, but I would like to do it one more time.

Now that's settled, here's an outfit of the day!
This maxi dress is the most amazing dress I have ever seen. I got it at H&M and I just love everything about it: the way it looks, the way it feels, it's just absolutely gorgeous! The jacket that I'm wearing is by Moggy's. 

I hope you liked this outfit!
