Life Update!

Hello friends,

I know it's been almost exactly 3 years since I last posted on here. I can't believe how time has flown! Maybe some of you have been wondering what's happened to me, so I just wanted to share some wonderful news with you: I became the mom of a beautiful baby boy on August 23rd, 2014! I'm afraid that will probably mean no more make up for me for the foreseeable future, but it's for a great reason, so I will not miss it for now :) Please say hi to little Erik!

As we are planning to move houses soon, I will be sorting through my make up collection and try to downsize a bit, so stay tuned for a blog sale in the near future!

Thanks for reading!!

Wild Purple

Hello everyone,

it seems that lately, I need to start every post with apologizing for being absent for such a long time... and it will probably happen again, because recently, I have started writing because I have this story in my head and it won't let me go, so I have somewhat neglected my make-up and spent more time with my notebook. I remembered though that I still had this look that I had done some time ago but never got round to actually posting it. Please don't ask me what I used, I cannot really remember - but I hope you still enjoy it!

With this look, I tried to capture the iridescent colour of soap bubbles floating through the air...

Steel Blue

For this look, I used matte black shadow all over and winged out in the outer corner, with some Steel Blue on top and a little bit of teal and mint in the crease:

I'm turning 30 next thursday and am going to Paris over the weekend, so I'll probably be back to posting in 2 weeks time (:

The Copper Look

I'm back! Sorry for neglecting this blog for such a long time, I've been travelling and have had neither the time nor the inspiration to create any looks. I spent a lovely holiday in Florida and had a very interesting business trip to the UK afterwards, and hopefully the next weeks will be a little quieter (even with my 30th birthday coming up :S)...

To get back into the flow, here's a rather simple look whose main attraction is the contrast between matte and shimmering textures - and the SatC lashes, which I absolutely love!

The inspiration for this look was colourful Kevin from Disney/Pixar's "Up". She's probably the cutest bird ever!

And this is the look itself:

The lid colour is actually darker than it appears in the pictures! I did this some time ago so I cannot remember exactly what I used, but the lid colour is Lime Crime Duchess, the orange is a Kiko eyeshadow and there are some shades from the Zoeva palette in it as well. Oh, and the purple is one of the new Catrice eyeshadows...
