EOTD: Navy, baby!

Goodmorning sweethearts! How have you been?
I have been enjoying a couple of free days - which I will be blogging about later (because a blogger or writer never really stops thinking about blogging or writing) and I've been experimenting with the many new beauty items I got recently.

One of those beauty items is the H&M navy eyeliner, which is gorgeous! I love the colour and the glitter in it. I recently created a gold/neutral make-up look and used this eyeliner for the finishing touch, instead of the regular black one.  I also re-discovered my Essence pigment from years ago, which is nice because I forgot how much I loved it when I just started this blog (a looong time ago ;p). Check out the pictures below!


 Products used:
- Essence "Smell the caramel" pigment (check out a very old eye of the day by clicking here. Feel   free to giggle, I did too)
- MAC "Bronze" and "Espresso" eyeshadow
- H&M "De Nîmes" eyeliner
- Miss Sporty mascara (review coming up)


I hope you liked today's post! Thank you for reading!
Have a lovely day!

EOTD: Glitter cut crease ♥

Goodmorning everyone! 
Just a few days ago, I got my newest H&M navy blue liquid eyeliner. I've tried out some looks already, and this one is my favourite by far!
It's quite dramatic and perhaps not suited for everyday, but it's fun. Check it out!

OOTD: The Venice of the North

People often say that Bruges is the Venice of the North. I have no idea if it's true or not, I've never seen Venice with my own eyes.
But there is one thing I do know: I think Bruges is pretty wonderful. It's quite small if you think about it, different from Ghent (which is another important city here in Belgium), but I think there's a lot of atmosphere, culture and character here.

 
When I first moved here, two years ago, I had this plan to explore Bruges during the weekends... But things kept coming up and I decided that school and work were more important. 
However, I decided to make up for lost time and I've been making a lot of walks, discovering more and more beautiful places, with my sister by my side.

Woops! Resting bitch face!

We had such a nice day together, just spending some time, doing some shopping and sipping a couple cocktails in the city center. As always, I was armed with my camera and we snapped a couple of pictures of my outfit.

It wasn't that hot out so I'm wearing beige/light brown trousers and I paired it with this amazing black top with golden glitters in it. It's a bit odd, sometimes you can spot the gold glitter and in other lighting it just disappears. 


What I love about this outfit is that the colour of my trousers, shoes and purse match perfectly.


For accessories, I wore these two H&M necklaces, that I showed you in my haul earlier.


That's my outfit of the day! I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
 Thanks for reading, I hope you have a nice day!

H&M "De Nîmes" coloured eyeliner review!

Another day, another eyeliner added to my make-up collection - or so it seems!
As you might have noticed, I've been getting into glitter and coloured eyeliners recently. I've been experimenting with eyeliner ever since I've started blogging, well over four years ago now!

My latest eyeliner buy was a bit of an impulse; I didn't need more eyeliners, but the H&M store in Bruges has been expanding, adding more make-up to their collection and the eyeliners were on sale, so I got one.

 

The packaging of this eyeliner is so cute! You can see the colour of the eyeliner through the tube. The letters on the eyeliner are gold, which is beautiful. Everything else is pretty basic.


The eyeliner that I got is called "De Nîmes", it's a gorgeous blue colour with a bit of glitter in it. Oh, and I also have an "eye of the day" coming up using this eyeliner, so make sure you check that out as well.

The tip of this eyeliner brush is soft and flexible. It's so easy to draw a line across your lashline.


And would you look at the colour of this eyeliner. My god, it is gorgeous - it reminds me of what the sky looks like at midnight! 
The eyeliner contains a bit of sparkle. I wouldn't say glitter because there aren't any big chunks in it, it's very subtile. It's almost difficult to explain. 

It has a nice texture and applies smoothly. I don't have any complaints about pigmentation either; one layer does the job just fine, this eyeliner isn't watery or anything.

To be honest with you, I never expected to find such a great eyeliner at H&M. 

Finding this eyeliner was a coincidence (I wouldn't have seen it if it didn't have a huge red sticker or if it wasn't placed near the check out- very smart marketing by the way) but I'm glad I did notice it.
If you feel like trying something different, I'd recommend giving this eyeliner a shot.

I'm will be going back to see if they have any other exciting colours! 
I paid €3 for this eyeliner.

EOTD: Neon

Goodmorning lovelies! 
Remember last week when I showed you my brand new coloured eyeliners by Miss Sporty? Today's look is a very bright look. I used my neon yellow eyeliner for this one. 
I was quite excited to try this one out and man, I can't get over how cute it is! I will say that it's not for everyone. A couple of my friends love it, others don't really like it at all. It's all a matter of personal taste, but being the beauty/make-up lover that I am, I just had to try it. I'm always up for something new!

I think this is such a nice make-up look for bright, sunny days! Everytime I look down, it's like a little surprise: "Boom, I have yellow eyeliner!". I will have another make-up look up using the pastel blue eyeliner as well.

 

I kept my eyeshadow pretty neutral so it wouldn't take away from the colour pop this eyeliner provides. I have listed all the make-up products below. You can click the links to my reviews if you'd like to read more about these products.

Products used:
- The Balm "Balm Voyage" palette:
    "B3" in the crease, "B4 in the outer corner, "A3" on the lid
- MAC "Satin Taupe"
- Essence liquid eyeliner
- Miss Sporty eyeliner in "004 Neon Yellow"


Thanks for reading!
