Favourite summerproof make-up

Summer; it is the most beautiful time of the year, the birds are tjirping, the sun is shining and walking through the park is a lot less messy.

But summer can also be incredibly hot, we've had a taste of that here in Belgium. On days when it's +30°C outside, it's no fun to wear a lot of make-up, so today I'm going to show you my favourite summerproof, "easy" products. 

I love my Catrice BB cream. It's cheap, but it works good and when I'm at work, people always ask me what products I use on my face. Well, this is the product. I can't find it in my store however. I think they're out of the assortment (god I hope not) and I sure hope I'll find a replacement as good as this one. Loved it! If you can still find it in your store, get it. No, just get them all!


Some days I've felt like BB cream is even too much to put on, it'll sweat right off anyway. So I've been using my MAC pro longwear concealer to conceal spots or dark circles and that's it. I just use a little bit of blush at times and my "Adored" highlighter by MAC.


 I'm never in the mood for complicated eye make-up, layers,... , so most of the time I go for the easiest look.
I use this Infaillable eyeshadow in "Forever Pink", or one of my Color Tattoos by Maybelline! 


Sometimes I use products that take a little more work. For example this eyeshadow duo. These colours are "Amber lights" and "Coppering" by MAC. I mix them and put them on my eyelid. Next I put on some eyeliner.

 
 

Another gorgeous product (that does take a little bit more work), is MAC's "Rose" pigment.


What do you wear on hot, sweaty days? Or do you just go make-up free?

Back to school: planning


Hello everyone!
 Here I am with the first "Back to school" post! Today I want to tell you about the importance of planning. I never planned anything when I was younger, which resulted in chaos.

It's been a year or probably two years since I started making to do lists and it has been a lifesaver for me. I'm a little messy and I tend to forget things sometimes, so having a to do list is always good. 


To do lists are good because you can see in the blink of an eye what you have to do that day, which always helped for me. I always tried to finish my work so that I could spend the rest of the night blogging or reading.

This is how I make my to do lists. When I start my to do lists, I normally write down all my activities for the whole week, but I do leave some space, in case I make more plans.

I use a couple of colours; orange for school things (f.ex. essay)
I use red for things that I need to do for my blog, and I use green to write down the hours if I have to go to work.

I also use a normal blue or black pen to write down things that I can do ahead. For example if I want to blog three days ahead, I put down three titles of blog posts that I need to work on. 

The things written in blue or black are optional. If I don't have time for those things that day, I'll just do it another day. But you know what day say: never leave to tomorrow what you can do today!


I like to plan, I seem to have much more controle over my life and I'm going to keep doing it.
I'd recommend it to those of you that don't plan, try it, it will change your life (and your mood, when you see your to do list for today is empty)!

Thanks for reading!

EOTD: mysterious weather!

Hello everyone! 
Last week the weather was a little mysterious so I decided I'd make a look based upon the weather. I didn't want to make it too dark because I had to go to work, but I think it looked pretty good.

 

It was quite early when I did this make-up so I didn't use any eyeshadow on my eyelid. I just applied liquid eyeliner and mascara (both by Essence, as always), and after that I went in with dark blue eyeliner kohl by Essence called "Nightfever". On my lashline, I used "Deep Truth" by MAC. It's a really beautiful royal/navy blue, I absolutely love it!
I blended it out and voilĂ .


 It's a rather simple look, but I think it's really beautiful and it absolutely suited with the weather that day!

Book haul!

Hi!
Here I am again with another book haul! Last week I bought two really interesting books!

The first book that I bought is "Mr. Mercedes", by Stephen King. It looks like an amazing book to me, I've always liked Stephen King's books! As always it's full of scary things, murder and mystery! I'll let you know what I think about it!

 

The next book I bought is a book about mythology. In this book, all the mythology from different areas and times is written down. I think mythology is very interesting and I also think it's going to come in handy next year when I'm studying History.


Thanks for reading!

Introducing: Back to school series 2014!

Hi!
I have some exciting news! I'm back with a "back to school" series! I decided it would be fun to do one again this year - I did one last year, but this year I'm not going to high school anymore, I'm going to college!

 

I thought this might be the perfect time to share some tips, and discover what the future holds. This is the first year that I go to college, so maybe next year I'll do another series to tell you about what I have learned the first year. Or I might just write a few lifestyle posts during the year!

Of course, a lot of the things that I'll be talking to you about in this series, will also be helpfull to people who are still going to high school.
If you have any tips to share, please do so in the comments!

See you soon!
