FOTD: Purple Rain

Hey you guys!
Today I have a face of the day. Last week I had to go grocery shopping, but I felt in the mood for something different. So instead of putting a lot of effort in my eye make-up, I decided I'd spice up my lips for a change!

I have to admit I actually really like this look. It's quite simple, yet special! I used my NYX "Purple Rain" lipliner and my Estée Lauder "Violet Crush" lipstick!
As for the eyes, I just lined my waterline using an Essence kohl pencil. My mascara is also by Essence.

What do you think?
Have a lovely day!

♥ Fall make-up tutorial ♥

Happy Monday everyone! 

Glad you are here! I have filmed another make-up tutorial for you guys, a talk thru this time.
The make-up look I created is the perfect fall make-up look!
I incorporated beautiful gold and green colours into it, those colours remind me of the changing woods! Maybe I'll create another look with orange/red as well! Let me know if that sounds good to you!

Weekly Diary

Hello everyone!
Happy Sunday! How has your week been?
I've been so, so busy, but it has all been very exciting!

I moved out! I have announced that I was moving on my blog before, but it was only Friday before this week that I got my key. So I have been moving for the most part of this week, and I've also been staying at the studio. I love it so far. My roommate moved in a little later, so I thought I'd spend my morning making a "Welcome home" sign!


I also have to be responsable for myself now that I live on my own, which is turning out pretty good. But then again, I've only lived here for about a week or so! I have actually been cooking which is something I don't do because.. Well because I can't but I've mastered spaghetti and rice with chicken.Well hey, I haven't starved yet!


In the meantime, I have explored the city. I actually met some interesting people on the bus this week as well! I rarely talk to people on the bus because I don't want to annoy them, but I love it when someone randomly starts a conversation.
Put away that phone and make contact in real life!

On Thursday, school started back up for me. It's so weird, I'm the youngest one in school again! I'm really looking forward to what life has in store for me this year.
So far, it really seems like I made a good choice. I'm really excited and ready to go for it 100%. All my teachers are such sweet and enthusiast people!

We actually had to listen to two people who were going to tell us more about the school on our first day and both the teachers were very funny, but I particularly loved it when one of the teachers said "You couldn't have picked a better subject to study, it's going to be so rewarding, I'm sure you'll love it! I know I still do".
That, my friends, is a good teacher! It made me feel really welcome and she made me even more excited! 

Tomorrow is the first "real" day of school which means classes! I'm looking forward to it!
I'll update you next week!

Stay safe!
Have a good Sunday!

Lifestyle: Take a look inside my new home ♥

How are you doing? I’m doing quite well!
As you know if you’ve followed my blog this last week, I have been moving out. Well, let’s say I’ve pretty much finished moving out!  I thought it’d be fun to take a little break from make-up reviews and show you around my new place instead!  Of course I’m not going to show you everything because… well, I like my privacy, but I hope you enjoy the pictures I decided I would share with you!


Have a really good day!

Thanks for reading!

EOTD: Make-up job!

Happy Friday!
Today I’m going to share something that I have never done before (I think). A few weeks ago I did someone’s make-up and I asked if it would be okay if I took some pictures of the make-up look I created and if I could put them on my blog!
So here they are! I created this look with my newest MAC eyeshadows. 


This look is a little darker because the occasion was late at night, so it was okay for me to turn it into a “smokey eye”.
I used “Star Violet” on the lid and put a little bit of “Cranberry” in the center of the lid. Using a lighter/brighter colour in the center of the lid is really going to make your eyes pop!
In the crease I used “Espresso” and then I put a little bit of sketch in the outer corner. Next I blended until everything looked flawless. A good trick to make the colours blend nicely is to pick up a little bit of “Espresso” when blending “Sketch”.


In the end we decided we’d make the look even darker by applying a black eyeshadow from my MUA “Undress me too” palette.
Again, put a lot of time in blending. I blended and then added a little bit more colour because it wasn’t vibrant enough yet. It takes some time but building the colour up like that gives the most beautiful look! 


After I finished blending, I took a little bit of a skintoned colour from my ELF 144 neutral palette on a clean blending brush and just blended everything one last time.
Next, I chose a really light pink eyeshadow and applied it as a highlight. After that I used liquid eyeliner and mascara (both by Essence, as always) to finish off the look.
Let me know what you think!
Have a good day!
