Yay for Bright Spring-Lips!

Hi everyone!

Even though the sun still seems to be hibernating where I live, I woke up feeling optimistic today and so I thought I'd try out some fun lipcolors for spring/summer. This season is really all about color, whether you'd want to wear neons, pastels or just the usual bright pinks and reds. Combining these pretty lipcolors with a flashy nailpolish and a bright eyeliner (magenta lips + turquiose liner + yellow nails = success) will definitely make you stand out in the crowd.

VOTE for me in The Inglot Summerlook Contest!

Hi guys!

Just a quick post to ask for your support! I'm participating in this contest called the Inglot Summerlook Contest, which basically asks you to come up with a pretty make-up look for summer, and make a tutorial-like video of you doing the look on yourself or a friend. I'm really satisfied with the results, since I've never made a video like this before (I'm not saying it wasn't a struggle because it was :). Anyway, this is how it turned out!

Project Purol

Hi everyone!

This is just going to be a quick update on a project that I'm starting off with today. It has something to do with Purol, which is a Dutch brand that produces different skincare related products, such as lipbalm, vaseline, talcum powder and ointment. The latter is the one I'll be using for my little research project, and here's what I'm gonna do.

DIY: Unique vintage rings!

Hey guys!

So, this might not have a lot to do with makeup, but I just felt like sharing this quick and easy DIY with you! This afternoon, me and my mom went to the thriftstore and I saw these gorgeous clip on earrings lying there, waiting to be turned into some even more gorgeous rings. I instantly became inspired to once again get creative, and I must say I'm loving the end result! This DIY is the perfect way to get yourself some new and unique jewellery, while spending virtually no money on it.

How to mend a broken ... compact!

Hi guys!

So, a while ago I ordered a Make-Up Studio palette filled with different blush colors. A couple of days later I heard an ominous thump coming from my front door, after which my mom called me to say that one of the blushes hadn't survived the blow. I almost cried when I found out that it was the hot pink one, but then I remembered the magic trick I'm about to show you. This method is very quick and simple (and even quite fun to do) and it doesn't affect the quality of your compact whatsoever. After this, you're gonna want to break all your compacts just so you can fix them again :)

Hello my loyal followers (okay maybe not just yet, but let's hope you will be soon :),

This is a very exciting day for me, since I have been contemplating on starting my own beautyblog for a while now.  I was trying to come up with reasons why I shouldn't, but I couldn't think of any, so I finally decided to just go for it. And here I am!

In addition to this blog, I set up a YouTube channel, where I will be posting make-up tutorials and other beauty related video's. I'm planning to film one every two weeks on saturday, so that you guys know when to expect one.
Of course YouTube wasn't the only reason I started this blog. That would be lame. You will also be seeing many written reviews, random beauty-related stories and personal experiences, swatches, tips and tricks, make-up myths, and all that jazz! I already have tons of ideas about blogs I'm going to write and tutorials I'm going to record, so definitely stay tuned for those!
