EOTD: Purple rain

Hello everyone!
 Last week I showed you all my new make-up items from Prague.
I got a few really nice products and I already tried out a couple of them. I also used the new products for today's look!

 

The look of today is made with "Sketch", "Texture" and "Woodwinked" by MAC, and a purple eyeshadow by NARS. I think it looks so beautiful but it's really not that hard. Blending and patience, are the key words to this look!


What do you think of this look? Would you like to see a tutorial on it?
Thank you for reading again today! Have a good one!

OOTD: A few curves never hurt nobody!

Hello everyone! I'm back with an outfit of the day.
This one is from one of my last days in Prague. This day wasn't as hot as all the other days, but I could still walk around with a cardigan without feeling cold.


In this post I'm wearing a burgundy T-shirt by H&M and over that I'm wearing a blouse by H&M in the exact same colour. I think this look appears really classy, beautiful and put together, even though I didn't spend a lot of time on it.

I wore my high waisted jeans with this blouse. Same reason: it's quick, it's easy, it looks good and it feels comfortable. 
We had to walk a lot that day so I just put on my black Converse All Stars, threw on my black cardigan and brought my black, studded purse by H&M.
Pretty simple, but not bad. Or is it?


I didn't accessorize much. 
I did put on my new silver earrings by H&M, which looked like this. I think they are very beautiful but yet not overdone. 
For dinner, I switched my Converse All Stars to floral print ballet flats with burgundy, blue, red, black and yellow in it. All pastel colours of course. The outfit still looked pretty simple, but I think the ballet flats gave a more feminine touch to the look.



That's my outfit! Do you like it?
Have a great day!

MAC photo tutorial ♥

Hi you guys! Yesterday I showed you my newest MAC make-up palette. I also showed youa very colourful look and today I'm going to show you how I did it!


The first step to getting this look is applying eyeshadowbase, concealer or foundation. This will help the eyeshadow stick to your eyelid and it will make sure the eyeshadow last all day. I'm using my Essence I ♥ Stage eyeshadow base today.


The first eyeshadow colour I'm going to use is "Coppering". I'm applying this all over my lid. I'm going to keep applying this colour until I'm happy with the intensity. This colour is very beautiful for people with blue or green eyes, it really makes them pop!


The second colour I'm using is "Sketch", this is a purple colour. With a crease brush, I'm going to put it in my crease. I'm going to focus the colour on the outer corner. Again, you can build up the colour until you're happy with the intensity. After doing this, it's time to blend. Blending will fade the harsh lines and make everything look softer and more put together.


"Amber lights" is a beautiful, golden colour. I'm going to apply this to my inner tearduct. This colour is - again - suited for blue eyes. It's going to make your eyes pop and it's a cute detail. Light colours in the inner tearduct also make you look more awake.


And last but not least, I'm going to apply "Humid" on my lower lashline. 
Now that I think about it, this look reminds me of the earth: the green of grass, the gold represents the sun and the copper and the purple remind me of sunsets.


Now we're done with the eyeshadows, I'm just going to apply some black liquid eyeliner to make the look more wearable. I'm also applying a bit of nude pencil eyeliner on my waterline. 
This is going to make my eyes appear brighter and bigger.
Mascara, and done!


This is how I made this look! I love it, but I wouldn't wear it to work, it's probably too colourful. I would wear it to the beach though! 
Do you like this look? Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!

MAC eyeshadow palette review

Hello everyone!


As I told you in a previous post (my haul from Dresden and Prague), I got a new MAC palette filled with beautiful colours that I have been wanting for a while now. These are all very beautiful on their own, but can be combined as well! 
I didn't think I would use these colours together but when I saw the finished palette, my hands started itching to use the colours!

 

Here are the colours that I got:


I swatched all four of the colours and my jaw basically dropped to the floor. I know MAC is a really good brand and it's known for their amazing quality but I was really surprised by the quality and pigmentation of these eyeshadows.


From left to right: "Sketch", "Humid", "Coppering", "Amber Lights".
Below you can see the look I made with these four colours. 
It's great for spring and great for people who love a lot of colour. My photo tutorial on this look will be up tomorrow!


Have a lovely day! Smile!

Weekly Diary

Hello everyone and welcome to the very late night edition of my Weekly Diary. 

This week I didn't have to go to school, which means I had a lot of time for other things! 
The first thing I did on Monday was sleeping as long as I could, haha! I hadn't gotten much sleep in Prague (only about four hours each night) and the last night on the bus was a disaster, I didn't sleep one minute! Time to make up for it! 

 

The coolest thing I got to do this week is to go watch "Divergent". I have read the bookseries about three times now and I keep falling in love with the way it's written and the characters. I think this is actually a book series/movie to think about, this could maybe become the reality in the future.

I think the movie was so good, I enjoyed it very much. During the movie I kept thinking oh my god, Shailene Woodley, who is the main character, is so beautiful! She's also in "The Fault in Our Stars", a movie based on John Greens book. I read that one as well and I can't wait to go see the movie.


Of course we went to Starbucks. I love going to Starbucks before going to the movies. 


When I got home, I wanted to go feed my cats and guinea pigs when I saw something... My girl guinea pig, called Chubby, was finally giving birth! We had been waiting for so long for this to happen and I was so, so happy when I finally saw the first newborn.
 In total, she gave birth to six guinea pigs. I love it! I don't think I'll ever have enough pets!
 

The rest of the week, I spent a lot of time on the blog: reviewing, testing, swatching, photographing, editing and so on. I still enjoy doing this so much. 
My blog is just a hobby that's kind of running out of hand. But it's okay, it just makes me love blogging even more!

Have a lovely evening!
