Ever since I got a new computer I’ve been looking for a new (and preferably free) program to crop and cut my pictures. So far I found an online program I really like, but it still isn’t perfect and simple the way it used to be on my old laptop.
Oh well, maybe I just have to get used to something different, but I like a program that opens my pictures and let’s me start editting immediately. I haven’t been able to find a program like that without getting completely overwhelmed by all the different possibilities. If you know any, just let me know in the comments please!
So, as some of you have noticed I haven’t put my name in this look or in the Falling Leaves look either. I simply forgot because I was too busy figuring out how to work with a new program, lol.
Anyway, I made this look because I wanted to use some of my MakeUp Geek pigments and this is what I came up with.
The blogpost before this one was about the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette I got from Enchantra. I absolutely adore it and the colours are just so pigmented and vibrant, I couldn’t wait to see them “in action”. But I didn’t have a lot of time because, even though I do have vacation from work right now, I have to work on our house with my love.
We’re installing a new floor the next few days, painted the entire livingroom in the passed week and next week we’re getting a new kitchen. Lot’s of work left to do!
But I was so happy when I found an hour of free time to just try Cold Chemistry out. I used all the colours and here is the result.
As you may know I have a huge soft spot for Sugarpill products. And Sugarpill has been releasing a lot of new products lately, I especially had my eye on the Cold Chemistry palette. Dark colours and all with an amazing shimmer, yes please!
So it made me very happy when Linda from Enchantra told me these palettes had arrived at their store.
Sugarpill has a lot of pressed eyeshadows but almost all of them are matte and some have a sparkle in it. That’s what makes this palette so different because these colours are all extremely shimmery and sparkly. And much to my delight, it arrived at my doorstep this week!!
I squealed while unpacking…
Here’s what Sugarpill has to say about it:
A luxury eyeshadow collection created in collaboration with Amelia Arsenic, designer of cult fashion and art brand A is for Arsenic London.
This dark collision of glamour and nocturnal worlds features four richly pigmented, shimmering meteoric shades which blend seamlessly together. The collection combines Amelia’s dark aesthetic with Sugarpill’s trademark velvety smooth eyeshadow formula.
Colors: Soot & Stars, Diamond Eyes, Elemental Chaos, Subterranean

I made this look the day my grandmother was turning 90. Come to think of it: last year I wrote about my grandmother on my mother’s side turning 90, this year it was the grandmother on my father’s side!
I bought some clothes for the occasion, some items from a brand called Lip Service, I wanted to own these for many years but I thought they were just a bit too expensive for me. Lip Service clothes are gorgeous and I love their style but I think 60 euro’s for a top and another 60 for a skirt is just too much. So I was seriously considering making something similar myself when I ran into someone selling these items for 45 euro’s for the skirt AND the top. That’s the kind of stuff that makes me happy.
I made a look that’s pretty simple and it’s made with one of my favourite palettes: the Sleek Graphite palette.
I was meeting my friend Wendy to start on our Polished Beauties project the day I made this look. It was great weather and we sat outside for some time, which really turned the bling on for the glitter I used from Eye Kandy. 😀
When I meet Wendy I usually go a little over the top with makeup, lol. I don’t really set myself the goal to look like a wannabe dragqueen but sometimes it does turn out like that.
Oh come on, like you didn’t notice? 😉 😀
