I had one of those days that I wanted to cheer myself up and I did it with bright colours again. It worked like a charm by the way and when I was done with my make-up I also used a bunch of hairflowers in my hair and it was such a fun, tropical and colourful look so I named it Tropicana.
It was made with my Inglot palette, you can see which colours below in the summary of products.
I was reading Josi’s blog the other day and she had linked me in one of her articles. She used Goldilux for the waterline too to create a golden waterline. I was so happy when I read that, it’s an honour for me to read Josi got inspired by little ol’ me!
Funny thing: she used it in a light blue and gold look and I don’t use that combination a lot and I thought it would be a cool idea to make a look inspired by her look that was (partially) inspired by me. Are you still following me? lol. But I didn’t want the look to be too much glittery-in-yo-face-golden-look-at-me-now because I had to go to work and I was already wearing stuff that was a bit out of my comfort zone. So I took my Inglot palette again and I used the matte blue colours in there together with the bronish colour and, of course, Goldilux from Sugarpill. I think Goldilux is my all time favourite, it combines with everything.
I had to work all easter so I didn’t get to do a lot but I had a late shift too and that morning we had a nice over the top breakfast and after that I got to spend some time with my make-up buddies.
I wanted to do something colourful and dramatic and I personally feel I’ve succeeded. I also did my hair a little different than usual and I liked it a lot. I got a lot of sweet comments on it so I guess I wasn’t the only one.
When I was working nightshift we had enough time to watch a movie one night. We saw Water For Elephants and even though I’m not a fan of Robert Pattinson, it turns out the man can actually act quite a bit and the movie is with Reese Witherspoon and any movie with her is worth watching. Reese stole the show and I couldn’t stop staring at her hair, it looked so cool and very beautiful on her.
I wanted to try something like that but I didn’t want to use anything like a curling iron because my hair is not very strong and warmth like that will just damage it. And what do you do when you don’t know how to get a certain look done? Right, you turn on Youtube! I found a couple of video’s about curling your hair without warmth and I used those and I just loooooove the result. I’m absolutely doing this more often.
I also wanted to show you my dress, it’s the one I bought at Primark and I think it’s real pretty.
