Ready to sparkle!

Beauty, lifestyle

With Christmas coming up I couldn’t help but try out a first make up look for the holidays.

However I’m usually more into the darker colors, I banned the darkest shades on my palette, and also black eyeliner was not welcome to this occasion!

I did, on the other hand, try to go for a visible but not over the top make up look. Although I added some loose, false lashes I do think this is a very wearable look, even if you’re not used to wearing make up.

I got my inspiration from the Too Faced palette I got a few weeks ago. I didn’t try out all the colors just yet, and I just really felt the urge to change that ;).

Below you can see which colors I used for this look, and on what part of my eye I applied them. Looking at it, it might seem complicated but trust me when I say it’s not. In fact, you’d be surprised how easy it is!

While I was at it, I thought why not do my hair as well.

A low, messy bun gave this look the nonchalance I was looking for, or as I like to call it: The “I’m so over tight dresses for Christmas so hand me that cosy sweater kind of look.

Red lipstick to finish it off et voila!

To add some movement to my blog, I added a little video below.

I still need to work on that “try not to laugh, you’re on camera” kind of face but heck yeah, this was the first time I tried it. And funny face aside, I do think it shows that there is some extra length and volume in my lashes without it being to obvious.

Should you be interested in more video’s when it comes to hair and make up, be sure to let me know in the comments below! I might give it a real shot one day ;).

27. Smash it

Beauty

As you might have noticed on my Instagram page I recently got myself a new make-up palette by Smashbox.

For as long as I can remember I never really invested in good make-up. I usually shopped at a local drugstore and got what I needed there. But that’s gradually starting to change. The Naked eyeshadows by Urban Decay for example have been on my want list for a while now. But so far I never made the move.

21. Party proof!

Beauty

Today we celebrate the last day of the year. The last day of 2016 and all the good things it has brought to us. We make our new year’s resolutions for 2017, but before we get started on them, we party one last time.

We eat too much, we drink too much, but while doing so, we make sure we look damn fine!
