Ok, is anybody discovering a theme here? Most of the looks I posted lately have been inspired by autumn or the falling leaves so I made an autumn tag for them.If you like autumn colours, make sure to check out the tag!
This look also has those gorgeous deep dark colours in them. I was riding my bike home from work and I saw a tree with a lot of brown and reddish leaves, some yellow and some were still green. It was such a beautiful sight and I remembered those colours for next day so I could make a look with them.
Winners have been announced om my Facebook page and all received their discount code in their message inbox!
As you may know I work together with Enchantra these days. They provide me with some of my favourite products in their webshop and I link to them , that’s basically how our evil scheme works. And last week I got an email from Linda, asking me if I wanted to give away some discount to my followers. Well, duh!
This might need some explanation: in the Netherlands we have a celebration on the 5th of december, we celebrate Sinterklaas, not to be confused with Santa Clause because that’s a different thing. Sinterklaas is a party for kids. And we celebrate it by munching on lots of chocolate, delicious kruidnoten (the little cookie ball things you see on the picture above) or pepernoten and of coures: presents!
And that’s what this little giveaway is for. You like?
I’ll let you know how it works: I’m giving away 6 discount codes to 6 people. There are 2 codes with 25% discount, 2 codes with 20% discount and 2 codes with free shipping. Here’s the kicker: I have no clue which code gives which discount. Please note: all codes can be used internationally, the free shipping codes can only be used in all of Europe.
You don’t have to do a lot to get a chance of winning, just follow my Facebook page. That’s it!
On december 5th I’ll pick 6 winners of the discount codes and contact them. If you want to, I’d love to know what product from the Enchantra webshop you would but if you would be one of the lucky winners, but that’s just for fun and you don’t have to do that in order to win.
So let me know in the comments of you already follow my Facebook page, I’d love to know and it gives me some insight in how people got to know about my blog.
When I made the Gloomy Autumn look I wanted to use some dark colours and I really liked the result. But I’ve always liked dark colours in my makeup so that’s not exactly a surprise. After that I wanted to do “something green” and like Gloomy Autumn, not with too many colours. Maybe some glitter?
Here’s what happened.
It’s been a while since my last update!
Sorry about that. I’ve been focussing my attention on other things lately. My love and I bought a new game called Guild Wars 2 and we’re completely addicted. On top of that I’m giving a course at work and I love doing it but it’s also exhausting because I’m still learning (and stressing out about it). So when I come home or when I have a day off, I just want to relax and do whatever I feel like.
I’ll get back to doing more makeup in a couple of weeks. But for now, you’ll just have to bear with me because I’m trying very hard to keep the balance between funtime and working hard on something I find difficult. I hope you understand!
I told you about the Sleek Candy palette and I wasn’t completely overwhelmed with the colours. I wanted to try the palette as soon as possible so I picked a few colours and tried some stuff out.
I wanted to create a look with these colours because the weather sucks around here, we get loads of rain and I feel like we just shot ourselves from a great warm summer into a dreary autumn. Somehow, in a few days all the trees have lost their leaves and it’s starting to get cold inside!
So autumn colours seemed appropriate. I wanted to combine some of my latest Sugarpill beauties, including one of the colours from the Cold Chemistry palette I got from Enchantra, here’s what it turned out like.
